BBC Newsnight saying tonight that doctors who complained of shortages of PPE were warned to shut up about it by NHS management.

People quite rightly condemn the fascism of the 1930s. But are we not seeing a form of fascism arising today with so much state control of our every movement? That’s what fascism was - total control by the state. Now even the churches bend the knee to state.
Ffs! Godwin's Law again........
Anyone who cannot see that the controls implemented are temporary, and are only there for the common good needs to duck their head in a bucket of water and keep it there till they run out of breath. Because that's about the best way I can think of to replicate at least aspect of what dying of this disease must feel like.
Mary Kenny was a clown when she appeared on the Late Late Show in the 1960s and she's an even bigger clown now. The only difference is that now she is an irrelevance.
By the way, on the subject of the Nazis, how's the holocaust denial thingy going?:)

Welsh police turning away English tourists due to Covid 19. English Covid 19 rules are laxer than Wales.


....Police across Wales say they have been "busy" dealing with visitors flouting lockdown laws.

North Wales Police said they had turned around tourists from Manchester, Norwich and London as they tried to visit parts of Snowdonia.

Drivers from Bristol and Wolverhampton were fined for heading to Stackpole, Pembrokeshire, along with a Birmingham family in the Brecon Beacons.

Everything governments do is temporary... until it's not, like income tax.
I never had much time for Kenny but it's interesting when usually pro-establishment hacks like her take a questioning stance; she won't be invited on to 'day time TV' any time soon.
Holocaust revisionism is a growing phenomenon across the world. As you know the worse thing you can do is tell people, you are not allowed to question this event 😉

Are you seriously suggesting that the Irish government want to keep you all locked in your houses forever?

No.
But I do believe they will learn from this, how the people can be controlled, how they can rule on a very poor mandate; the total control they've had will excite some of them undoubtedly.

They seem to be the only country in the world that has less deaths in nursing homes than in the general population.

60,000 excess deaths in the UK during this crisis between December 28th and 15 May according to ONS figures. This is way more than the official Dept of Health numbers of Covid 19 deaths of 36914. Of the 60,000, 41220 had Covid 19 on their death cert in England and Wales, rising to over 45000 in the UK as a whole according to Sky.

Govt appears to be favouring Tory councils over Labour councils for crisis funding.



The northeast is the worst hit area right now for new infections.
