Breaking News: New Covid variant found down the back of PM’s sofa

The spokesman continued, ‘If everyone could keep an eye out for new variants and send any new ones to the Ministry for Scaremongering, Whitehall, that would be very helpful. We still hope to completely unlock the country by 2050.’

    It’s been a long time, but I looked at the picture of that sofa in the article and I’m pretty sure that was the same sofa inside which they found all of those late votes for Senator Al Franken back in 2009.

    I wonder if it’s an Ikea.

    I have no doubt Professor Ferguson can produce a computer model showing the potential consequences, “up to” 500,000 deaths being the go-to figure, of such a sofa-bound variant being found.

    Faced with such evidence what can a prudent PM do other than extend the original 3 week lockdown* just a bit longer to save the nhs again.

    * now 62 weeks and counting.

    Yes, and saving the NHS has resulted in fewer patients being treated.

    Which, I think is an indication of how bad things really are in the real economy. The desire to extend the lockdown, is really an attempt to cover up the rampant destruction the pseudo professors and Politicians have wrought.

    I notice few peoply talking about July 19. Once bitten, twice shy?

    It is odd – even by the standards of the lockdownists, the people who covered up or SMEARED the Early Treatment that would have saved most of the people who died.

    Some mutations of the Covid 19 have made it a bigger killer – for example the South African mutation and the Brazilian mutation.

    But the “Delta Variant” that they are screaming about it, is the renamed Indian mutation (England-Kent is now Alpha, South African is now Gamma, I forget what the new name for the Brazilian mutation is) – the Indian mutation actually makes Covid 19 a bit LESS of a killer.

    By the way I should not (with no medical training what-so-ever) know more about this than the government experts – and I do NOT know more than them. They know everything I do – including about Early Treatment.

    Think about that – and if you are not filled with rage, you should be.

    Not bug.

    Feature.

    ‘Saving the NHS’ had/has – quite literally – not a single thing to do with treating patients, whether Covid patients or non-Covid patients. The goal is to save the institution, for which the treatment of patients is becoming more and more of a distracting nuisance.

    45 years old, and as true today as the day it was recorded:

    And it is the institution (the NHS) that has to be destroyed if ever a functioning health system is to be brought to the UK.

  • APL

    According to the CDC the incidence of myocarditis/pericarditis in under twenty fives is twice the expected rate in femails and ten times the expected rate in males after the second dose.

    Given that almost nobody knows about VAERS and it’s voluntary, odds are, those numbers are a gross underestimate.

    A ten or fifteen year old with autoimmune rejection of the heart has a rather bleak future.

    llamas: “‘Saving the NHS’ had/has – quite literally – not a single thing to do with treating patients, whether Covid patients or non-Covid patients.”

    Yes, it was put forward back in March April ’20, on this forum, that the NHS should not be saved but destroyed and something functional built from the ruins.
