Is Govt Health Policy Masking More Than Faces?

Is Govt Health Policy Masking More Than Faces?

From Spiked – The ideology of lockdown lingers on  

Wait, we’re still being asked to save the NHS? To limit our lives so that we don’t get injured or sick and put pressure on this sacred institution? Nearly two years after the first lockdown, when we were put under house arrest to protect the NHS from being overloaded with Covid patients, we’re once again being told to restrict our daily activities so that we don’t do something dumb that might require the attention of a doctor. The logic of lockdown survives. The idea that our freedom must sometimes be suspended for the good of institutions staggers on. Post-lockdown? You wish.  Continues…

The last couple of times I’ve been shopping in a branch of one of the well-known supermarket chains, I’ve found myself at the check-out where a female employee is (still) wearing a mask and – drum roll – plastic gloves.  Now, don’t get me wrong.  If someone wants to wear face masks and disposable plastic gloves all day long, who am I to judge?  As long as this craze isn’t forced on the rest of us, that’s fine.  However, the latest talk on the street is that there are Government ministers who think we ought to start all over again with renewed determination to “protect the NHS” even though, obviously,  it didn’t work last time.  Moves are afoot to get us all terrified again, wearing masks (and probably gloves for good measure), but I’m not wearing any of it (so to speak)… What about you?  Are you going to welcome the return of Communist-style dictatorial governance… or are you more suspicious now that you’ve thought about it – a virus that knows when you are standing up and sitting down, how many people are in your house; a virus that knows the time? Gerragrip!  This authoritarianism is the unfolding of the Fatima warning that Communism would overtake every country.  This is how it’s being achieved. Communism, remember, isn’t about economics.  It’s about a system of governance – an oppressive system of governance. Reflect…

    The point was made over and over again on this blog throughout Covid restrictions that no government ever gives up power it takes in a so called emergency. This is the proof of the pudding.

    I will not be co-operating one iota with any more of this nonsense. If there are still people stupid enough to think the masks work and the rest of the nonsense matters, let them get on with it but I want to live as a free person.

    I second your comment and statement of intent. Anyone with an IQ even marginally higher than a house plant can now see through this government con. As for the NHS – time to scrap it. The 21st century needs a 21st century solution, not a health system that’s so old it’s on a zimmer frame!

    The Daily Sceptic is still reporting the surge in non-Covid excess deaths, plus this news about a couple who kept their coffee shop open during lockdown and are paying the price.

    I’ve never understood this near-deification of the NHS. At all costs, we must save ‘it’. Funny, I thought the NHS was meant to save us. Must have got that one wrong. It really has become a modern-day Golden Calf. Just more expensive.

    A bit off topic, but one of the chief mask proponents is now vaccinating and genetically engineering the animals we eat. Apparently, Edinburgh is a centre for this: and 2 min video here:

      I think Edinburgh University was one of the first to introduced stupid preferred pronoun badges, although I don’t know if it came to anything. Probably died a death. So, you can always rely on the capital to be up there at the front with the latest ridiculous fashion.

    Irish govt especially CMO is virtue signalling the return of masks early this week or last week. The point is Covid is airborne I think. Reputation of this irish govt took a huge battering re overcrowded hospitals and other issues as well. Think nobody is listening to this irish govt this time around as they are languishing in various polls. It’s sinn Féin who are ahead in all polls. It’s replicated in most countries especially UK and nz govts re opposition parties. There was another thing that bothered me was the ingredients of masks if I rem correctly somewhere but I lost that link. Also other point people are quite fed up with this irish govt’s constant maladministration as they aren’t listening to media reports or TV etc. Also Doctors are losing out trust as well cos refusal to speak out. Pillars of society are crumbling bit by bit over the years-Catholic church, politicians, police and now doctors. What’s next.

    I must confess that I did wear a Mask last time around on Buses Etc and at Church ( sorry not at Church they were closed for the Greater Good ? ) But not this time. Gates . Schwab. Biden and the Man who Dresses up as a Pope in Rome ain’t getting me this time. Also why is Nippy not on the TV with the We Wummin in the corner waving Her hands about to tell us of the Excess Deaths from so called Vaccines. These Death Figures are now worse a lot worse when the Plandemic was around at first. Yet today when walking my Dog I seen a Young Man aged between probably 30 to 35 wearing a Mask in the Street. I was going to wish Him a Happy New Year but of course I didn’t know who He was .

    A paean to the Almighty Virus (and all its variants and snake oil salesmen):

    It sees you when you’re sleeping,
    It knows when you’re awake,
    It knows if you’ve been vaxxed or not
    So get vaxxed for goodness’ sake!

    Oh, You better watch out
    You better not cry
    You better mask up
    I’m telling you why,
    Satan Klaus is coming to town.
    He’s selling a jab
    He’s checking it twice (NOT!!)
    In his Chinese lab
    Never mind the price!
    Satan Klaus is coming to town.

    If I had all the jabs my GP surgery is currently offering, (covid, flu, shingles etc, etc) I’d be like a pin cushion. Lunacy.

    I do believe the Government health policy to repeat the “protect the NHS” nonsense is definitely masking something else and that something else is total control over our lives. As other have said, and I think the same, there’s no way I am going to be wearing a face mask or doing any of the rest of the stuff again – never, never, never!

    I think things are unravelling now and I hope it is not much longer before we see heads rolling or at least those responsible for the oppressive restrictions brought to court. This is an interesting report.

    Speaking about Fatima – which nobody seems to be doing (yet!), I thought I’d remind everyone that tomorrow is the first First Saturday of the new year, so if you haven’t yet made the First Five Saturdays, this would be a good time to begin. Traditional Latin Mass in Immaculate Heart of Mary church in Balornock, tomorrow, First Saturday, at 9.30 am.

    PS – the video which I posted in the introduction is, in my opinion, the best video on Fatima out there. Every other one that I’ve seen, peddles the falsehood that the Consecration of Russia has been done. This one, doesn’t, and finishes by highlighting the fact that the Consecration has not been done in the manner requested by Our Lady. So, if you haven’t watched it, viewing is highly recommended, which translates (in Glasgow speak) as “watch it, or else!” 😀

    And apologies – I think I forgot to wish everyone a Happy Feast of the Epiphany today. For a minute there, I wondered if the Feast was yesterday, so much has happened since Mass this morning, but I think I’m correct in saying that today is the 6th – Epiphany – while yesterday was the 5th, my beloved mother’s birthday. Had she still be with us, she’d have celebrated her 100th birthday yesterday. You’d all have been invited to the party! May she rest in peace.

      Thanks for the reminder about the Fatima video – I agree, it is the best one out there. I’ve watched it a few times now, and sent it to others. It is very much accurate, to the point.

        I agree – the Fatima video is really excellent. Also, when I heard this latest news about politicians and doctors keen to return to wearing masks and other restrictions to “protect the NHS”, my first thought was Fatima. I had begun to think we were having a respite, maybe Communism is being held back a bit longer but now I think they really do mean it, we’re being groomed for real oppression.

        The police are now actively pursuing thought crimes – all of this, and the snitching neighbours, suggest strongly that we really are not ever going back to the “old normal”. We’re in this for the long haul.

        As Neil Oliver keeps saying on GB News, it’s up to each one of us to refuse to comply from now on. There’s more of us than there is of them – we have got to stand up to this tyranny or we’ve only ourselves to blame when it dawns on us that our freedom has gone for good.

        We do need to pray very hard for the Consecration of Russia because until that is done, we’re going to be living under this kind of medical tyranny – the excuse to introduce totalitarian government.

      Agreed – we need to pray very hard for the Consecration of Russia; I know Our Lady said it would be done but it would be “late”- well, it’s definitely late now! Very!

      RCA Victor,

      The NHS is as overcrowded as an empty pub. It’s just very badly managed. There are too many Indians and not enough cowboys. Managers galore, while the medical staff seem to be talking about either emigrating in droves or taking early retirement! It’s just a very badly managed institution.

      What a surprize eh Victor to know that the fake Docs and fake Deaths were multiplied by the Jimmy Martin crowd . I have to admit that over here i actually believed Sturgeon when She done Her Daily Lying program on the Rotten BBC until i actually had never heard of anyone under 80 dying directly due to the Plandemic . Now i dont believe Anything except the Date on the Rotten BBC . I also have to admit that i now have a TV Tax known as a Licence. My Daughter got me a SKY package for my Christmas ,and as i want to watch it ( of course ) i have to give the Rotten BBC over £160 . I actually went onto the BBC and Lo and Behold they said the next Doctor Who would be a Homosexual. Well they never actually said those words but am sure you get my drift. Of course it is another way of getting at Children .

    I resisted the masks from day one.

    Then I started to think I should don the mask out of respect for the sensibilities of others.
    So I started wearing the mask but always under my nose, nobody could claim I wasn’t wearing a mask…. and nobody did complain.

    Then I thought, this is going too far the brainwashed were still wearing the face nappies months after the cases had plunged. So I stepped up my campaign of subversion…. I put the mask on pulled it below my nose…. and walked about Tesco or Asda…. chewing the whole mask like some sort of deranged fool….. and nobody said a word….. !!!

      You were lucky – I’ve known of plenty of people who were told off for not wearing the mask properly. It’s a pity that you stepped up your campaign but still wore the thing. We needed more people to take them off – the wearers were too dim, IMHO, to understand your subtle “subversion” LOL!

      Laura is right – you got off lightly. There have been many stories of people being chided by other shoppers, for example, in supermarkets, for not wearing their masks “properly”.

      I sincerely hope you won’t comply this time around. If we don’t resist this madness, we really can’t complain when they come to take us to the “re-education” camps. And there’s no use saying you weren’t educated in the first place. That won’t wash 😀

        Well… I never thought of my self that tough….. I’m about the same hight as John Wayne’s spurs….. but still nobody challenged me chewing the mask…..
        We all know… the way of prayer…is how we’ll live the way of life…. I’ve deliberately not used the Latin… ( I’m not a scholar ) … if you’ve got someone subverting the so called… “norms”…. even in an especially small way… how are the powers that be supposed to reply.
        They could request you to leave the premises for not wearing a mask. What’s their excuse for you to leave if your chewing you mask….

        I’m sorry officer…. haven’t been out for days…. I’m starving… couldn’t help chewing on the mask… and faint at their feet…

        Comedy gold… shurely…. !!!

    Latest up: Brexit Britain (why do they always blame Brexit?) signs breakthrough deal with BioNTech for (mRNA) cancer vaccine trials: Before long, you won’t be able to access any sort of medical treatment that doesn’t have (dangerous) mRNA technology at its core. Look forward to an increase in ‘sudden adult death syndrome’.

      That’s really worrying – and it’s presented in that report as a good thing! These people are so confused. They’re not asking questions about the sudden rise in unexplained (non-Covid) deaths as it is, so they’re never going to associate any rise with these cancer trials. Stupid is, as Stupid does.

    I could have screamed when I read this news about the efforts to bring back masks. No, no, and no again. No way!

    As usual, the two slow-brained people who host Good Morning Britain are on the side of the oppressors, and the female doctor in this video is such a smart alec – and Suzanna Reid (?) is, as usual, open mouthed at the idea that any government “expert” could be wrong. How do these people get jobs quizzing other people when they are so uneducated themselves. They don’t know how to think, which is why they obey so easily when the government tells them what to think!

    The more I’m thinking of this, the more sinister it gets. I’m also putting this return to the mask campaign together with the massive energy bill I’ve just got in, and I am sorry if this sounds like I’m a conspiracy theorist, but I think it’s all connected. We’re being made poorer (while the energy companies make huge profits) and we’re back in the situation where our freedom is at the mercy of doctors like that infuriating woman in the GMB interview. The quality of life we were allowed to enjoy for the few years since WWII – and it is only a few years, in terms of history – is being taken away from us. I remember growing up being cold in bed, getting up to throw coats over us to keep warm and here we are, full circle, back to that sort of life. It’s no accident.

    Yes, it’s Fatima unfolding – that much is clear, but until we get a Catholic pope, there won’t be any consecration of Russia, that’s for sure.

    Can you believe this – Sturgeon has started her daily briefing again. I’ve not watched this, but I read elsewhere that she announces the return of masks. I’ll be wearing a mask twenty-five years after Hell freezes over. Absolutely NO WAY! My prayer is a heartfelt: Oh, Dear Heavenly Father, please do not let my fellow nationals vote for independence – do NOT leave us at the mercy (or lack of it) of this totalitarian dictator. Amen.
