I’m writing my thoughts down because I’m troubled by the whole Tier/Lockdown/Vaccine regime (in the UK). Here’s why:
I did a degree in Pure and Applied Physics then spent my career in the Nuclear Submarine Industry. Science is king, there are procedures for everything and the procedures make sense because they are backed by science.
I’ve checked all the links in this document – they worked as of January 2, 2021.
There is no science to show masks work and a lot of research to show they don’t.
- A May 2020 meta-study on pandemic influenza published by the US CDC found that face masks had no effect, neither as personal protective equipment nor as a source control. Source
- A Danish randomized controlled trial with 6000 participants, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in November 2020, found no statistically significant effect of high-quality medical face masks against SARS-CoV-2 infection in a community setting. Source
- A July 2020 review by the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine found that there is no evidence for the effectiveness of cloth masks against virus infection or transmission. Source
- A May 2020 cross-country study by the University of East Anglia (preprint) found that a mask requirement was of no benefit and could even increase the risk of infection. Source
- An April 2020 review by two US professors in respiratory and infectious disease from the University of Illinois concluded that face masks have no effect in everyday life, neither as self-protection nor to protect third parties (so-called source control). Source
- An article in the New England Journal of Medicine from May 2020 came to the conclusion that cloth face masks offer little to no protection in everyday life. Source
- An April 2020 Cochrane review (preprint) found that face masks didn’t reduce influenza-like illness (ILI) cases, neither in the general population nor in health care workers. Source
- An April 2020 review by the Norwich School of Medicine (preprint) found that “the evidence is not sufficiently strong to support widespread use of facemasks”, but supports the use of masks by “particularly vulnerable individuals when in transient higher risk situations.” Source
- A 2015 study in the British Medical Journal BMJ Open found that cloth masks were penetrated by 97% of particles and may increase infection risk by retaining moisture or repeated use. Source
- An August 2020 review by a German professor in virology, epidemiology and hygiene found that there is no evidence for the effectiveness of cloth face masks and that the improper daily use of masks by the public may in fact lead to an increase in infections. Source
Yet masks (actually, face coverings – which can be anything) are still mandated and insisted upon – I believe this is to engender fear (and it’s working). I’ve heard people say non-mask wearers have blood on their hands, usually the same folk who won’t look at the facts.
Wearing masks hasn’t slowed the spread of the virus.
We know it’s rubbish when a mask can be any face covering and we have to walk into a pub wearing one but can take it off when we sit down to eat.
Some folk point out that flu has been eradicated which is rubbish since the PCR test can’t distinguish between these viral fragments (more on that later).
The Government is forcing us into lockdowns which also don’t work but do destroy small businesses, people’s lives and, in some cases, is actually killing people:
- Over 2000 excess heart disease deaths; Source
- 17000 excess deaths where cancer treatment was withdrawn; Source
- 27 million lost GP appointments which will lead to earlier deaths. Source
Not to mention the increase in suicides, mental health impacts and the unknown long term impact of the vaccine.
The reason for lockdown is to prevent the spread of the virus by asymptomatic folk but there’s little or no evidence to suggest this happens. Source
The Mainstream Media is using the numbers of deaths to generate fear but, if we look at the figures, it’s obvious this is a distortion of the truth – media say 70,000, real figures are less than 14,000 – check this out UK Govt’s OWN NUMBERS Expose Their COVID19 Fraud.
I was told I’m insensitive for mentioning Covid deaths, I’m sorry but that’s exactly what the Government want – follow the narrative and don’t question.
I know of a number of folk who have Covid on their death certificate, all but one had serious health conditions and the one that didn’t was killed in a road accident. The ONS counts all deaths within 28 days of a positive test as a Covid death.
Lockdowns are based upon the number of positive cases but the test itself is flawed:
The inventor of the PCR process in an interview said he could find “anything in anyone” if he ran enough cycles (Source). Even the World Health Organisation says there’s a problem. The government knows this but is still making decisions based upon flawed data (Source).
Now we’re in Tier 4 because of a mutant strain of the virus – more scaremongering – viruses mutate all the time! If this is a real mutation then the developed vaccine won’t work (that’s why we have flu jabs every year).
There have been over 4000 mutations in the virus since the beginning of the year, over 3000 of them are documented here.
Mutations that make viruses more infectious don’t necessarily make them more dangerous. A number of variants have already been detected in the UK. For example, the D614G variant is believed to have increased the ability of the virus to be transmitted and is now the most common type circulating in the UK, although it doesn’t seem to result in more severe disease.
The new strain referenced in the broadcast was discovered in late SEPTEMBER.
Since late September just 1108 cases of this new strain have been detected across 60 areas in the U.K. (Source).
The Pfizer vaccine has not been tested properly. On average it takes 10 years to develop and licence a vaccine because it takes about ten years for all the side-effects to be understood and documented. The authors of the Pfizer vaccine clinical trial study explain that their data show a greater than 83% likelihood of finding at least one adverse, or undesirable, event, if the true incidence of that event is 1 in 1000. However, the study does not include enough participants, nor has it followed them for enough time, to reliably detect adverse events that are rarer than 1 in 1,000.
Public Health England have decided to prioritise getting the first doses of the vaccine out to everyone instead of giving the 2nd vaccine after the 21 days. Instead, 2nd vaccine within 12 weeks. Pfizer have said there is NO PROOF that the vaccine works after the 21 day window (Source).
For me, the bigger question is why vaccinate healthy people for something that is not a threat to them? (Source)
We are being lied to about the NHS – it’s not at (or even close to) breaking point (Source).
The biggest concern I have is that dissenting voices are being stifled – videos which dispute the MainStream Media or government narrative are taken down. Even my articles are being removed. When I say that’s happening some call me a conspiracy theorist – doesn’t make me wrong. When BLM protested, there was violence and the police did nothing; when Extinction Revolution protested, there were scuffles and the police did nothing; when Covid protesters got together peacefully they were attacked by the TSG
I’m sad that some folk are terrified and believe what the media is telling them.
I’m shocked that my neighbours feel the need to justify who visits them.
I’m disappointed that so many people follow the narrative without question – even when it is blatant rubbish.
I’m disgusted that the police will arrest anyone for hugging (video).
We are being lied to because MPs are making a fortune:
- Firm ‘linked to Matt Hancock’s family’ given £5,500,000 mobile testing contract
- Rishi Sunak refuses to disclose whether he will profit from Moderna vaccine
- Firm with mystery investors wins £200m of PPE contracts
Peoples’ lives and businesses are being destroyed whist the richest folk and giant companies grow richer: Billionaires’ wealth rises to $10.2 trillion amid Covid crisis.
