  1. BBC has more on this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-53218704 I suppose the first question to be asked is "how was this discovered?" "Measures to control the virus in pigs" also sounds fairly omminous, mass slaughter of pigs then? No more bacon butties or sausages? Pork to become 'haram'... oh wait... "New changes", or perhaps 'upgrades'. Looks like your virus protection is out of date and you need to update it then... With a heading like that, its obvious that the BBC already wants their reader to "be worried". It very much sounds to me like a narrative is being formed here that vaccines need to be 'upgraded' on a regular basis, in order to 'keep us safe' from any new variants of viruses that emerge. And the WHO is sticking its oar in already. We haven't even seen the 'coronavirus vaccine' yet, and they're talking about looking for vaccines for the 'next' virus pandemic. Keep an eye on this one folks...
  2. 2009 called, it wants its news back 🤣
  3. From: https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/midlands-news/new-flu-strain-potential-become-18513720 I know, lets call this "swine flu"...
  4. Seriously, you can't make this stuff up can you?

    Leicester Lockdown Extension what town city will be next ?

    We knew this was coming, the warning signs were given a while back. "They" knew they would not be able to get away so easily this time round by putting the whole country on 'lockdown' again. So now "they" intend to do this bit by bit, one city, town or borough at a time. I guess the hope is that people in areas that haven't been 'locked-down' will "comply" and go along with government orders and directives in 'fear' of being forced to go into lockdown. Why are cases increasing in these areas when stats show that the overall number of cases has actually been decreasing? Could there be more 'cases' now that the list of 'symptoms' has increased to cover the vast majority of minor ailments and conditions? Dodgy curry or kebab gives you the squits the next day? Must be Covid! Too many sherries the night before and you got a hangover in the morning? Must be Covid! Runny nose, congestion and headaches from your hay fever? Nah mate, you got Covid! In a way, this is also somehow undermining the Government's attempts at trying to get the country back to normal, with more businesses including pubs, restaurants and hairdressers being able to open again from July 4th, as there is a definite faction using the media in particular to ramp up peoples' fear levels again in order to get people to oppose the lifting of lockdown restrictions. "PLEASE please don't open the pubs, we're NOT READY for this!" etc etc

    Fatigued

    It's all the bloody same mantra, "the best way" to beat this virus is to "wash your hands". So I guess the question to be asked then, if everybody is dutifully spending all day washing their hands, there is excessive use of hand sanitiser, and public spaces are regularly being cleaned and disinfected... ...why are people still getting sick? I mean, not from 'coronavirus' or 'covid-19', but other illnesses as well? Many minor illnesses and complaints are caused by nefarious bacteria and viruses. So are these other bacteria somehow immune to all this 'hand-washing' and disinfecting bullshit?

    New Social Media Platform

    I managed to sign up at the second attempt yesterday. Was a bit put off by the fact that the 'verification' method they use so you can become a 'Parler Citizen' (ie prove you are a real person) is to either take a photo of, or upload a scan, of the front and back of a US driving licence, and to provide a 'selfie'. They may claim that these images are not 'stored' anywhere and are deleted once the verification process is complete. I guess this screws people like me who don't have US driving licences. Is this, as has been suggested already, some kind of 'honeypot'?

    Coronavirus Mega-Thread.

    Coronavirus: Number of Covid-19 infections tops 10m worldwide The number of confirmed coronavirus cases around the world has passed the milestone of 10 million, according to Johns Hopkins University in the US. The virus emerged in China late last year and spread across the globe. It has led to almost 500,000 deaths. Half the world's cases have been in the US and Europe, but Covid-19 is now rapidly growing in the Americas. The virus is also affecting South Asia and Africa, where it is not expected to peak until the end of July. Outbreaks are still spreading in many parts of the world, with one million new cases recorded in the last six days. From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-53212430 What the BBC fail to mention is that the number of people who have 'recovered' from this 'virus' is over 5.5 million https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/ Half a million deaths, out of 10 million 'cases' works out to 5%. So 5% of people who 'catch coronavirus' have died. Thus 95% of people who catch this virus "don't die", and over 50% have already 'recovered'. The current global population is 7.79 BILLION people https://www.worldometers.info/world-population/ So my rudimentary calculations show that of the total world population, 0.12% have caught 'coronavirus'. And 0.006% of the total population have 'died' from it. Context is important, these so-called journalists like to try and frighten us with these incredibly large numbers, but when you put them into a total global context, they're almost insignificant. Is this really a pandemic? Is this really such a 'lethal' or 'deadly' virus? Of course not!

    Coronavirus Mega-Thread.

    I wish these scientists would fuck off, and I also wish the BBC could stop morphing into a Reach Plc 'clickbait' website. Coronavirus: UK 'on knife edge' ahead of lockdown easing, scientist warns The UK remains "on a knife edge" and must act "sensibly" over the summer months to stop a second wave of coronavirus, a scientist has warned. Sir Jeremy Farrar said he is "worried" about a surge in cases ahead of pubs and restaurants reopening next month. Home Secretary Priti Patel said people have to be "conscientious" about the risk of a second wave. She said the city of Leicester could face a localised lockdown after a rise in cases. Sir Jeremy, a member of the government's Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) and director of the Wellcome Trust, has warned there could be a "very nasty rebound" of the virus in the winter. He told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "We're on a knife edge, it's very precarious the situation, particularly in England at the moment, and I would anticipate we would see an increase in new cases over the coming weeks." From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-53212435 "Surge in cases" - pull the other one. Its the middle of bleeding summer here in the UK now, when people are less likely to catch colds and flu. And as for 'very nasty rebound of the virus in winter', well of course there will be as that is the time when people are more likely to develop colds and flu. There is only a 'rise in cases' as more and more people are being subject to these bogus 'tests' which are giving positive results because they're not actually testing for a specific virus. Meanwhile many people are carrying about their business as normal, and not being affected by this nonexistent 'virus'. But many people are still cowering in their homes, living in fear, and watching and reading this BBC News shite, and believing that it is still 'not safe' to go out, 'not safe' to go to the beach, 'not safe' to go on a bus or train, 'not safe' go to a shop. These people don't want the lockdown to end, and as soon as the news reports come in about 'increased cases and deaths' they will be the first begging for the lockdown to come down even harder than before. This media fear-porn is priming people to accept that there will be a 'second wave' because that is what has been planned all along, and these 'expert scientists' are already dropping hints and clues as to when this is going to happen. Because they are the ones in control, the people calling the shots, the 'technocrats' pulling the strings of our supposedly elected government.

    David Icke books

    I raised this question in a 'pre-hack' post, as to why the David Icke Shop did not offer this new book for sale as a 'pre-order'. I have been working with WooCommerce myself recently at work, and I know that while this functionality isn't included 'as standard' there are plugins available which will allow orders to be taken and to show an 'available on' date on the product page. The Ickes are missing a trick here, I'd be happy to hand money over to them now to secure myself a copy, but I'm not giving any money to Amazon (only to buy a Kindle edition of course).

    How does one 'pirate' copy a book? Why not just buy a 'genuine' one direct from David's shop? https://shop.davidicke.com/books/

    one of the worst news hack articles I ever saw

    John Niven is not much of a free-thinker then.

    No we never ventured that far unfortunately. I did really enjoy my trip out on the 'water bus' between Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen, was great to get out onto the sea.

    Holidays

    I've been to Lanzarote a couple of times now, Playa Blanca and Puerto Calero. I loved it. The first time I ever travelled there, we arrived late in the evening. So it wasn't until I woke up in the morning that I saw the beautiful landscape. I've never known a desolate desert be so beautiful.
