The Welsh Government is desperate, today, to let me know that 3,115 people have died of Covid-19 so far this year. Unfortunately we have no idea if that figure is true or not as the PCR test is riddled with false positives and there is a complete lack of standardisation.
Anyway I digress, this is almost broadly the same figure as I estimate have died from air pollution in Wales this year using the figures for the UK as a whole from the European Heart Journal and adjusting for population (64,000 deaths per year in the UK thus Wales with a population of 3.15 million (64,000 x 3,150,000/66,000,000) will have around 3054 deaths per annum.
These air pollution deaths have been happening year on year, affecting a younger demographic than Covid-19 (childrens’ immature lungs are often affected worse). Filling hospital beds just the same as CV19, people gasping for breath just the same, relatives mourning the loss of family members just the same but no panic, no hysteria, no trashed economy just a price we have all accepted we are happy to pay. But people are dying just the same and you dear reader are still no doubt driving your car and ordering you parcels online (that come all the way from China).
Seems some deaths are more ‘worthy’ than others. Presumably as the hysterical rush around shouting for someone to save them from Covid 19, whilst handing away their hard won civil liberties they did not bat an eyelid whilst the parents of Ella Kissi-Debrah wept for their child?
She was first taken to hospital in 2010 after a coughing fit that followed a spike in air pollution levels. She was subsequently admitted to hospital 27 times over three years. Many of these coincided with recorded peaks in air pollution. Her mother, Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, said she had resuscitated Ella between 20 and 30 times while waiting for an ambulance. She said that Ella had been treated in five separate hospitals. Thick mucus clogged Ella’s lungs and eventually killed her.
Whilst You Were Asleep a Right Wing Coup Took Place
Not mine, but I wish it were. Apparently from Miriam Margolyes. This is spot on.
“The United Kingdom has fallen. There has been a right wing coup in this country… . And nobody noticed. We did not notice because it was years in the making. We did not notice because when it came, it came in a blonde wig and a mask of buffoonery. We did not notice because it lied to us and hid its true intent. We did not notice because the foreign manipulation was hidden from us and continues to be hidden from us. We did not notice, because the lies when they were discovered were hidden by more lies, until lack of truth became normal and acceptable. We didn’t notice because it appealed to our basest nature. It cried racist, it cried xenophobe, it falsified a threat to our way of life and blamed others. We did not notice because we accepted all the promises and lies and now we cannot admit to our gullibility.
Make no mistake it has been moving steadily and stealthily. Have you not noticed how Parliament has been emasculated and how decisions are now taken by a few in a closed room? Have you noticed how the judiciary is being sidelined? Have you noticed how the media are controlled and access to news is restricted? The BBC merely mouths faceless government sources and the papers howl racist xenophobic and government-fed lies? Have you noticed how the police, under cover of COVID, are being encouraged gradually to interfere more and more in our lives? Have you noticed how we are being encouraged to report ‘unsocial behaviour’ in our neighbour’s? Have you noticed how the impartial Civil Service is being packed with yes men and government cronies? Committee after committee is rigged with government-friendly sympathisers. Even now a review of the Armed Services is underway. Have you noticed how every means of objection or complaint is being stealthily closed? Have you noticed the intention to lower food standards, animal and environmental standards and abandon the guarantees of our basic human rights? Have you noticed how measures trumpeted as keeping foreigners out, actually make it harder for US to leave?
Finally have you noticed how the government is engineering circumstances under which everyone’s lives will be so much harder and under which we will have so much more to worry about than complain about our government? Meanwhile the rape and asset-stripping of the country has already begun, with million-pound contracts awarded to cronies with no apparent expertise, siphoning money from the public purse to the private pocket and delivering nothing. It may already be too late but surely the time has come to cry enough! To stand up against the lies, the manipulation, the takeover of our Society. This government does not govern for the people; this government is governing for itself. It has become an enemy of the people, its actions are treasonous. Surely it is time to demand better, time to TAKE BACK CONTROL.”
Meanwhile here’s the Musical Covid 19 that spells it out for you.
