Lies, damned lies and governments

Today I managed to get to the post office. It’s actually a corner of the counter in Local Shop but it works. Once again I had to use the battery booster to start the car (that was a damn good buy) because we’ve been iced in for almost a week. I mean properly iced in, you couldn’t stand out there, never mind drive down a steep driveway.

I still have that court case to deal with. Third summons, the first two were adjourned, and I had to send back an acceptance form within seven days again. They don’t seem to realise that outside Glasgow, roads can be impassable for days at a time. This time the case is in May. Really puts me off offering any information in the future, the crash I witnessed was a year last August and this is still going on. The poor bugger probably wishes he hadn’t survived it now. My only testimony is dashcam video which I’ve given them, I really can’t see what they expect me to add to that.

I am getting a lot of strange tales from America, some stuff about it being a corporation that can only be dissolved if there is no president and a hell of a lot of very big money links. Something else about starting a war with China but provoking China into throwing the first punch. It fits together, it’s logical, there is a coherent story, would make a pretty decent novel, yet I would have scoffed it away as pure tinhat foilery in any other year. This year, if aliens landed on my lawn expecting screams of terror, all they’d get is ‘Oh hi, would you like a cup of tea?’ So I’ll wait and see what happens. Currently, if Biden tore off his mask to reveal he was Jimmy Savile and Harris unmasked herself as Elvis, I’d barely raise an eyebrow. Well, just over a week to go to find out what’s happening over there, if anything.

The UK government is, as usual, lying through its teeth. Well, is there a government in the world that isn’t? They all talk utter bollocks, they seem to think that’s their job and if you think they give the slightest shit about you, just count how many they send into wars they start but never fight. You are an entry on a spreadsheet, nothing more. Easily deleted, easily replaced.

Mad Hancock told Parliament that vitamin D had no effect on Covid back in October. He told them he had commissioned a study that had shown this. Now it appears no such study ever existed. Hancock lied. He wasn’t mistaken. He wasn’t misled. He lied.

We are under increasing levels of lockdown. If we ever get out of it we will be whiter than Nosferatu. There won’t be any racism left because every molecule of melanin will have been drained out of absolutely everyone until we are all the Glass People, skins transparent so you can see the guts inside. Think how much the NHS will save on X-rays, they’ll just get you to stand in front of a window.

This lack of sunlight means you are going to be seriously short of vitamin D. Never mind Covid, vit D does a lot more than that. It’s involved in the immune response to all kinds of diseases, it’s involved in calcium transport (vit D deficiency causes rickets) and it has many more jobs to do.

It’s very cheap. A year’s supply costs less than a tenner even at 4000 IU. It takes a lot to overdose on it. You’d really have to try very, very hard. In combination with zinc and vitamin C and either quercetin, quinine or hydroxychloroquine, it can render you very resistant to any kind of virus and a lot of other infections too.

Here in the north of Scotland we don’t see much sun over winter, and going outside often risks more – broken bones from falling on black ice, for example. So I take vitamin D washed down with orange juice. I take zinc, carefully, it can interfere with iron absorption to the point of anaemia if you overdo it. And I have quercetin and also quinine in tonic. I’d like to get ivermectin just in case but I have heard about it for so long as an agricultural veterinary drug for parasites. I’m still coming to terms with the idea that it can be used in humans. I’ve only just heard about that. We use it on sheep here. That’s an additional squint-eye from me.

So, the vaccine is rolling out. The vaccine that does not prevent you catching or spreading Covid and therefore will make no difference to lockdowns or masks or any of the rest of it. It will make one difference. It will make those involved in the vaccine a lot richer. That’s it. That’s all it does. Because that is its purpose.

And so. we will have to show papers to prove we have been vaccinated against something that is less deadly than measles. Conspiracy theory, right? Haven’t our own goverments said this will never be implemented? You trust them, surely?

Well of course. Government is there to look after you.


The One World Religion

It’s a little-talked-about aspect of the New World Order, Great Reset and all those other ‘conspiracy theories’ the WHO, UN, WEF, Boris and even the next King Charles have been telling us all about. Today, Boris has told ‘Covid conspiracy theorists’ to ‘grow up’. That’s right – those who have been saying the virus is being used for political ends, that the first lockdown was just a taster, are still being called ‘conspiracy theorists’.

Boris on the other hand, is simply doing what he assured us he would not do, and what the ‘conspiracy theorists’ predicted would happen. At this point, those ‘conspiracy theorists’ are a far more reliable source of what’s coming than the government.

What’s coming isn’t very nice. The NHS doesn’t like heretics who question their Holy Pronouncements. Mad Hancock and others have suggested that ‘Covid deniers’ and ‘Anti-Vaxxers’ should be prosecuted. There’s that heresy again.

An increasing number of health professionals are declining the new mRNA vaccines. These are now ‘anti-vaxxers’. Really? I rather suspect that those workiing in the medical field, like those of us in microbiology, get a lot of vaccinations. It’s a hell of a risk working in an infectious environment without them. A doctor won’t know who might one day walk into his surgery with something nasty, just as I never knew what was in the contaminated samples I tested until I had the results. Results could take days.

These medics are not ‘anti-vaxxers’ and neither am I. We are merely anti-experimental-procedure-without-sufficient-safety-data-using-a-technique-devised-in-the-mind-of-a-lunatic.

Tried and tested vaccines, fine. Something banged tgether in Bill Gates’s shed in a matter of months, using an entirely new procedure never before tried in humans, not so fine. The Oxford vaccine at least uses standard vaccine technology, but they’ve inserted Covid spike protein into an adenovirus. From there it’s business as usual. (Adenovirus is one of the viruses that cause the common cold so this won’t give you Covid but it might give you a cold).

But I have banged on about the mRNA nonsense enough. This is about the One World Religion. It’s all part of it. It looked like they weren’t ready to start on that yet. I had assumed it would be the Church of Climatology and the Green God vs. Satanic Carbon. It might yet morph into that.

It was when they announced the return of Thursday night clapping that something clicked. This came about just as anyone who questioned the official narrative was labelled heretic. Last time it was ‘clap for the NHS’. This time it’s ‘clap for heroes’. I have never done either, it would be an entirely futile gesture out here unless I clapped into a massive amplifier. Also, I never saw the point.

Vaccine rollout has begun. Anyone refusing the vaccine is an ‘anti-vaxxer’ even if, like me, they’ve been vaxxed up to the eyeballs with pretty much anything else. Anyone questioning the official narrative is a ‘Covid denier’ even those of us who are quite aware that this is a real and nasty virus. Question the masks (which don’t work) or the lockdowns (ditto) and you are denying the very existence of viruses entirely.

Sound familiar? It’s just like ‘Climate denier’ shouted at the climate heretics. I suspect it’s the same people doing this.

One of many things Communism always gets wrong is the eradication of religion. I’ve never felt the need for one but many, many people do. People find comfort in the certain knowledge that they are right about their beliefs. They find comfort in believing there is a higher power looking after them, whether it’s God or Allah or Shiva or Odin or whichever. Even the atheists have meetings, which I’ve always found odd. Why meet to deny the existence of something nobody can prove exists? It’s the grouping of likeminded people – they’ll hate me for calling it a ‘religion’ but come on guys, you have meetings and all agree on something ethereal and shout down heretics. It’s the same.

It’s that grouping that matters. Like-minded people who believe the same thing coming together and feeling stronger in the group. It’s something totalitarian regimes of the past understood very well. Give them hope, let them believe in a deity who will someday come to save them and they’ll put up with anything.

Now I’m not saying religion is a bad thing. I’m an apathist, I don’t care about any gods. I do, however, understand that the belief gives a lot of people comfort and I would never try to take that from them. Besides, there’s only one way to find out which religion, if any, is right and I’m in no hurry.

Religion, however, has been used as a tool of control since the dawn of mankind. All you need do is call yourself the messenger of a particular god, be sufficiently convincing and you have control. I covered this kind of thing a long time ago in ‘Fear the Witch, for it is you‘.

Communism takes away that comforting religion. You have to treat the State as a god and it clearly isn’t. It’s full of people and not very nice people, usually. Anyone with any religion would look at that and think ‘That’s not God. That’s Satan.’

Someone in this New World Order game has realised this and decided to institute a One World Religion. You can call it tinhat foilery if you like. That’s actually a badge of honour these days, the tinfoil brigade have been rather good at predictions in recent times. Someone, somewhere, realised that most people, most by far, need some kind of hope, some comfort, something to let them believe their miserable, oppressed lives have purpose and that there will be a reward at the end of it.

However, none of the current religions will do. Muslims are not going to convert to Shintoism. Christians are not going to convert to Judaism. Buddhists will never consent to being Pagan. Any attempt to force one of the current religions into dominance is going to lead to a very messy and violent war. It has to be something new. Something proven. Something that offers what no religion offers. The true face of a god.

Now here’s the thing. It can’t be human. If Jesus reappeared, that only affects Christians. If the Mahdi appears, that only affects Muslims. Likewise for the messiah of any religion. This has to be something entirely new and unconnected to any existing religion.

Hence Thursday. Friday belongs to Islam, Saturday to Judaism, Sunday to Christianity. The holy day has to be separate from all of them. Clap for hte NHS. Clap for the heroes. Clap for the vaccinators. Clap for the Saviour…

Who is it?

Well, it was entirely coincidental, of course, that the Pentagon started releasing blurry images of alleged UFOs just as this started. Just as War and Pestilence stalked the land. Just as the Mark of the Beast is being issued to those who want to live and work in the New Normal. You don’t have the vaccine, you don’t get to live. Famine is coming, and Death is all saddled up.

No. I do not believe in the End Times but there are those who do and they are in positions where they can make it happen, or at least appear to be happening.

Are aliens coming? We are in the age of CGI where the screen can make you believe that blue alien giants live on a world where land floats in the air. We are at the point where you can make a video that looks exactly like someone giving a speech even though that person isn’t there. You can ‘re-face’ videos with other people’s faces just for fun and it’s very realistic.

They don’t need Ra to be real. They don’t need Odin or Christ or Hu Gadarn to be real. The technology exists to make you believe they are. Or any new alien ‘god’ that has come to save you.

We’ve long been conditioned to wait for a saviour so we don’t have to bother saving ourselves. Jesus was replaced by Spiderman, Batman, Superman, a host of others. You don’t need to do anything, just wait for the hero. The bad news is, there really isn’t one. You want to be saved, save yourselves. Stop clapping. You are the hero, if you can face it.

Okay, full Alcan headgear time. I am going to predict that there will be an ‘alien invasion’ by those who identify as all the gods of all religions, and that it will happen at 8 pm on a Thursday. They will unite believers into a One World Religion and heretics will be dealt with. Then they will go home, leaving selected New Popes in charge.

With current technology, considering the sophistication of what is available to the public and extrapolating to the technology that isn’t… this would be a breeze.

Show the Mark

There has been much brushing off of Covid ‘passports’ as merely more tinhat foilery. Yet, in Australia, Quantas have already declared you are not getting on their planes without proof of vaccination. To their rare credit, Ryanair will impose no such restriction. So far.

In America, Dr. Faust has insisted that mandatory vaccination for travel is not off the table. The UK government has said it has no plans for a Covid passport but has commissioned two pilot schemes to see how it could work. Quite a few companies, worldwide, are going to demand proof of vaccination as a condition of employment. Others are not making it compulsory but offering bonuses to those who accept it.

There is a really hard push to implement this. Why? Money, mostly.

This is the equivalent of ‘we just want a nonsmoking area in restaurants’. It’s the foot in the door. You know, surely, that mandatory medication will not be just this one vaccine, right?

It isn’t going to stop there. The first thing you will notice about your shiny new Covid passport is that it has multiple blank pages where the next vaccine, the next medication, the next drug you need to be ‘safe to travel’ can be stamped in. Oh, it’s ‘for the safety of other people’ now. This is no different to the old ‘for the cheeldren’ mantra. It’s bollocks. If the vaccine works you can’t catch the disease even if nobody else is vaccinated. Any other response means you know the vaccine doesn’t work – so why did you get it?

This virus is less deadly than flu and far, far less deadly than measles and many other diseases. So why compulsory vaccination just for this one? It’s that foot in the door. You accept compulsory vaccination for this one, and next thing you hear is ‘Oh but this and this and this are even more dangerous, you have to be compulsory vaccinated against them too. And you need blood pressure control and sugar level control and cholesterol control and…” The list will never end.

New Scientist spotted this several decades ago. There is no money in curing disease. There is endless money in treating disease. Type 2 diabetes? Lose weight, change your diet, it’ll go away as long as you haven’t completely wrecked your pancreas. Type 1 doesn’t, I’m afraid. You’re born with that one. Ah but it’s so much better to live on your preferred pizza and chocolate diet and also take these pills. High blood pressure? Stop watching the news for a start. That’ll help. Ah, but you can flob out in front of the TV with a beer and some pills. Keep watching TV. Keep taking the pills. Watch the profits roll in. Watch the greenbacks tumble.

People imagine that pharmaceutical companies are there to help them. No. They are not. They are there to make money. That is their only goal. You are the ones they make money from, but if they cure you, the money stops flowing.

It is the dream of every pharmer that you will be forced to take their product forever. Sounds bad?

Well, what if McDonald’s or Coca-Cola could persuade government that you had to have at least one Crappy Meal or glass of chemical fizz every day or you won’t be allowed to get on a train? Do you think they’d turn that opportunity down? Of course it won’t happen, they can’t claim any medicinal benefit but if they could…

…then they’d be Pharmers. Feeling ill? We have a treatment for that. You’ll have to take it forever but it will improve your life (note that in some cases of chronic illness this is true). Nowadays it’s ‘Not feeling ill? We have a test to see if you are,’ and so many dopey fuckers have fallen for it. Pharmer boardroom cleaners must be sick of cleaning laughter piss off chairs. How the hell did non-sick people get convinced they have to be tested for something when they’re not sick at all?

It was the ‘asymptomatic spread’ which has now been repeatedly shown to be not a thing at all. The ‘masks protect others from you’ when they actually achieve nothing and even if they did, if you don’t feel ill you aren’t spreading anything. If you are ill with a virus the mask won’t stop it anyway.

People are now demanding a vaccine that the makers say won’t stop them getting the disease, won’t stop them spreading it, but might make their experience a little less uncomfortable.

I have been vaccinated against tetanus, polio, so many other things. They all promise a good chance of me not getting the disease at all and if I do, it’ll be trivial. They promise I won’t be spreading it. The only exception was rabies vaccine which only promised it would give me enough time to get to a hospital. Since rabies makes Covid look like a bit of a sniffle, I took those odds.

Now, Pharmers are immune to prosecution in a way you could only hope to be from any disease. They don’t care if it’s safe. They don’t care if it kills more of you than the disease it’s supposed to prevent. Neither do their shareholders. It’s not going to cost them anything if the vaccine for a 99% survivable virus has a 99% kill rate. Not. One. Penny.

Do not imagine that the business of pharmacology cares about your health. They care about money. Nothing else. You are going to need the Mark of the Beast to do anything soon, the proof that you have taken the Pharmer dose of this week’s drug.

You are of course free to scoff and ignore me, and I genuinely hope you are right to do so.

But you aren’t.


I haven’t run a competition for ages. There is a line in an old song in there. Band and song name, year for a bonus mystery gift. If you find it I’ll send you three books of your choice from Leg Iron Books.

The Tiers of a Clown

There are four tiers of lockdown in England. Clearly designed by an evil clown who would make Pennywise gasp in awe. I think it’s much the same all over the UK. Note that there is no ‘tier zero’, no ‘zero risk’ or ‘mild risk’ tiers either.

Also note the numbering. Normally, the highest risk would be labelled ‘1’ and it would count down from there. That would have enabled a gradual easing of restrictions by adding more tiers at the bottom. Instead, they are numbered from the bottom up. That does not allow easing of restrictions at all, but it does allow increasing restrictions by adding more tiers at the top.

Nobody can convince me that this is accidental. I expect to see Tier 5 in January. I also expect to see at least one ‘new strain’ with added superpowers soon after the New Year. There are new strains all the time with any coronavirus, indeed any RNA virus will throw up a few viable new mutations every month. It’s very rare for any virus to produce a more vicious strain, they always tend to produce milder and milder strains. This is as much in the interests of the virus as the host.

Ebola doesn’t get far. It kills its hosts very rapidly and in very horrible ways. It has not mutated into a milder strain, maybe it can’t. Because of its effect, people isolate those infected very strictly, which limits its spread.

A virus such as a coronavirus can produce far less nasty forms. Eventually it will add to the huge list of respiratory viruses that cause colds. There’ll never be a vaccine against the common cold because so many different types of viruses cause it – and because a cold isn’t really a big deal for almost everyone.

In that state, two things happen. The weak variant spreads like crazy because it’s not really doing any harm to its host. It’s just a nuisance. The other thing is – getting the weak variant is very likely to give you immunity to the nasty variants. This means the nasty variants gradually disappear, but the virus continues to survive as the weak variant.

Sooner or later, another virus that causes a weak response in bats or birds or pigs or whatever produces a mutation that can jump to another species, such as humans. The new host hasn’t seen this one before so the infection makes a hell of a mess. The seriously ill hosts are isolated by the rest of the potential hosts which, for a non-mutating or slow-mutating virus, means that bout of infection dies away until the next host-jump.

However, a fast-mutating virus can produce weaker forms of itself that don’t cause enough harm to get the host isolated, and if the virus gets it absolutely right, the host won’t even realise it’s there. Those ‘perfect parasites’ already exist. They reproduce so slowly and do so little damage that the host doesn’t even notice them. Retroviruses can insert themselves into the host genome and stay dormant in there for years, reproducing along with host DNA whenever the host cell replicates. Some, like HIV, will reactivate years later and cause AIDS. Some don’t. If they get into the reproductive organs they might never need to come back out of that DNA ever again, they will be in every cell of the host’s offspring and part of the host DNA forever. It’s the ultimate free ride.

But I digress. I’ll try to stay out of lecturer mode.

There will always be new strains of any coronavirus. Always. The ‘tier’ system is set up to escalate, never to de-escalate. This game is far from over. In fact, it is set up in such a way that it will never end. It cannot end. There is no end point. The game board is a circle.

And yet this virus is not even in the running for an Armageddon Virus. Well over 99% of those who get it survive. By far, most of those who get it are getting anything from a bad flu to a mild cold. Sure, it’s not nice, but unless you are very old or have a serious illness already, it’s really not likely to kill you. If you already have a heart condition, diabetes or respiratory problems, keep away from it – but then, if you are in any of the risk groups, you should already be keeping away from seasonal flu. It kills a hell of a lot of people too.

Strangely, not this year. Flu has almost disappeared.

Another thing struck me as odd. Every winter the news is full of images of hospitals overrun with patients. Waiting in corridors, on beds in corridors,and the famously faked ‘child on the floor’ photo. This year… dance videos. Yes, they’ve started up again. Not just the UK, they are coming from all over the place.

Well, brace yourselves. This is not going to go away ever. Not even after you have that vaccine that has already been stated won’t stop you catching it or spreading it. So it’s really not a vaccine, now is it?

There’s also a small matter – every coronavirus vaccine that has been tried, has failed. Every one of them simply primed the vaccinated for an extremely, and often fatal, reaction to the virus.

A proper vaccine, the real deal, will give you a better than 50% chance of not getting sick at all and if you do, it’ll reduce the severity because your immune system is ready for it. Some, like measles, you only need one shot. Others, like tetanus, you need a ‘booster’ every few years to remind your immune system about it. These work. Smallpox vaccines worked extremely well. Hepatitis vaccines work. Tuberculosis, polio, these and many others work.

Coronavirus vaccines have not only never worked, they have always made subsequent infection far, far worse. And yet this is the one, totally experimental using a technique never before approved for use in humans, that they want to make compulsory? Well I’m not taking it.

No travel on public transport without a vaccine? Out here there isn’t any so… *shrug*. No entry to pubs or restaurants without a vaccine? They’re shutting those down very efficiently anyway.

Compulsory medication, any smoker will tell you, is that ‘It’s just a nonsmoking area in restaurants, that’s all’. “It’ll just be this one” is the foot in the door. There is no limit once the principle is established. As with the ever-expanding smoking bans, it’s for your own good. It’s for your safety. It’s for your health and those around you. How can you possibly object? Think of the cheeeldren.

I am thinking of the children. Specifically mine. I do not want them to have to live in Panoptica, but that is where this is heading. No family. No friends. Go to work. After work go back to your storage box you call home. No socialising. Eat as directed. Take this medication as directed. A hundred grams overweight, you can’t get the bus. Walk to the next stop and try again. No private transport. No privacy at all. You will own nothing and you will be happy. Because you’ll be drugged into oblivion with compulsory medication.

Oh I am indeed thinking of the children. The world we are creating for them now is a horror Clive Barker wouldn’t have come up with, and he came up with some truly terrifying visions.

You may now start calling me ‘tinfoil-hatter’. I don’t care any more. I tried to tell people about the reality of climate change and so many other things. It’s now too late to get ready for it, if you haven’t already. You can call me ‘anti-vaxxer’ even though I’ve had vaccinations against things you don’t know exist as part of my job. This year I had a letter telling me to go for my flu jab. I’ve had so many vaccinations my arm looks like the edge of a stamp but I’m not getting that one.

I’m not getting the covid one either. If that means I’m no longer part of society well, I’m a smoker. Society threw me out over a decade ago. No big deal.

I take vit D, 4000 IU, zinc, quercetin, quinine in tonic water and peppermint oil daily (that last one is for unstable guts and it seems to be working). I do not get flu, I rarely get colds.

Make of that what you will.

It’s very simple

So there is much hoo-hah about how shop workers have kept going through this alleged pandemic while public sector workers are happy with lockdown and want more of it.

The public sector is terrified of Covid. Aldi, Tesco and all the rest aren’t bothered. Why is that?

It’s very simple. The public sector is at home on full pay. That will change soon. Why? Because the private sector is dying. The small businesses that pay all that tax to keep the public sector going is dying. There will be no money for the next budget. It’s all going to collapse. It’s inevitable. Nobody in government is even trying to stop it.

The private sector is at home on 80% pay, coming from the taxes the private sector pay, plus massive government borrowing. This is total economic collapse in the making. You might be happy now, you might be home on full pay, but when the shit hits the fan (and it will) what will you do then? Do you have a generator, a private water supply, the means to catch and grow food? I do, I saw this coming but nobody wanted to hear it. And I didn’t even go all Icke on you. No lizard people, just evil humans. Well it’s too late now.

Why are shop workers apparently immune? Ah, they aren’t. Some have come down with the covid virus, been sick for a while and gone back to work. They are not in the same boat as those on an annual salary.

Shop workers are paid an hourly rate. Not an annual salary, where the money coming in every month is the same whether you turn up or not. On the hourly rate, if you aren’t at work you don’t get paid. If you want sick leave you need a doctor’s note, not just a ‘positive test’ and absolutely not an ‘I am scared’.

The unions could call strikes over ‘safe working conditions’ if they really believed it was unsafe. The haven’t and won’t because then they”d have to pay the strikers. So much more profitable to rake in those subs and let the taxpayer take the hit.

Unfortunately the taxpayers are being eradicated fast. Most of them are the small businesses the lockdowners are determined to destroy. We’ll be left with the big corporations who pay no tax. What then?

Well, you know, it’s pretty much done. It’s far too late to worry about it now, far too late to bother with telling anyone what ‘climate change’ and ‘the pandemic’ really mean. They love it, they love to be eternally terrified and in America, they will perpetuate it because Trump. No logic or reason is required.

Let it go. Let them have their new Wiemar republic. Let them experience it for themselves and let the survivors work out a new way. If they have any sense left it’ll be pretty much like the old way, the way that worked for millienia before the meddlers started.

There will, however, probably be some nasty stuff in between. There usually is.

More vaccine stuff

The Christmas book is complete, authors who opted to be paid in books should receive them soon. I am getting notifications of despatch from Amazon and you will probably find your books arriving in more than one box. It’s happened before, I once ordered 36 copies of an anthology for distribution (before I found out Amazon will send them direct) and that order arrived on one van in 36 boxes. The poor bloody driver had to scan every one.

Currently I am engaged in avoiding filling in my tax return. I really couldn’t stomach giving those wasters anything at all this year. So, unlike previous years, I am ignoring not one penny of allowable expenditure. Everything I can legitimately claim for is going in there. Down to the last postage stamp. If I’m lucky I might even get a rebate on the tax on my pension.

The spectacle of Mad Hancock pretending to cry on television when he was in fact clearly trying not to laugh, his appearances in Parliament where he is openly lying and again, clearly trying not to laugh, are frankly disgusting. You might find it all very amusing, mate, but we don’t. Tar and feathers is the gentlest of the fates I have thought of for you. If you’ve ever read Michael Moorcock’s books you might recall Dr. Jest. That’s what I have in mind.

Twenty years of research has not produced a vaccine against any coronavirus. Every one that looked promising ended up causing far more damage to the vaccinated than the virus could ever do to the unvaccinated. Autoimmune disease. Pathogenic priming, in which the vaccinated immune system subsequently goes into overdrive when faced with the wild virus and inflames the entire body. Every damn time.

This time they have ‘solved’ that problem by skipping most of the tests. If you take the vaccine, you are the test. You are the experimental animal. And it’s for money, and you won’t be getting any. Mad Hancock and his sidekicks Shitty and the Valeyard stand to profit massively from this. You are going to suffer but it doesn’t matter as long as they profit.

Would your government really do this to you? How many died as a result of the war in Iraq based on ‘we know he has chemical weapons, we have the receipts’? The so-called justification for that war was bollocks. How many terrorist attacks have they glossed over as ‘oh, he was a bit nuts’? How many young girls were serially raped while they arrested the fathers for trying to stop it? You really think the government gives a shit about you? If so, you are deluded. You are cattle to them. You are a source of profit, nothing more.

Face it. Your government does not care about you. They care about getting rich and if that means some of you have to die, well that’s just collateral damage. It does not matter which party you support, it does not matter which one is currently in charge. In this respect they are identical. They do not care about you.

The mRNA vaccine model is beyond useless. It is actually dangerous. Did you notice that even after vaccination you’ll still need masks and social distancing and lockdowns, and that the vaccine does not make you immune to catching and spreading the virus? Did you notice the sudden appearance of ‘mutant covid’ as the vaccines appeared? If (ha!) the vaccine doesn’t work, if you get horrible side effects, well then you have ‘mutant covid’ and it’s not the fault of the vaccine. Here, have a new vaccine against our new virus. You’ll still need the masks and everything else because this doesn’t work either. Ker-ching!

On the other side we have the anti-vaxxers. I’ve been called one because I don’t want to take an experimental and probably very dangerous injection, but I’ve had so many needles in my arm it would probably rip off like a stamp. All the vaccines I’ve taken were based on proven science, all were thoroughly tested before release, and all were created before the Pharmers were given immunity from prosecution. I’m fine with all of them.

Oh but the anti-vaxxers are claiming that the vaccines contain aborted foetus cells. They might. The only way to grow a virus is in living cells, and if it’s a human virus then you need to grow it in human cells. Short of strapping someone down and infecting them, the best way is cell culture and the longest running human cell cultures either come from cancers or from aborted foetuses. The cancer lines are not normal cells so of course they go for the foetal cell lines.

It’s unlikely there are any entire cells in the final preparation but there might be bits. So, the anti-vax argument goes that injecting an extra X chromosome is the reason that so many boys want to be girls now.

Yeah, I had to do a double take too.

Even if a thousand intact X chromosomes made it into the vaccine, their presence in an entire body is so infinitesimal as to be irrelevant. They will have no effect. They will not be incorporated into cells. It does not matter at all.

The reason so many boys want to be girls now, and vice versa, is pressure groups forcing this nonsense on them. Sure, there are real transgender people but not very many. There are real hermaphrodite humans too, but not very many. And sure, they should be respected for who they are but pushing it on others is trans-evangelism. You are you. We don’t all want to be you.

This rubbish distracts from the real problems with this new and entirely experimental vaccine. Which are firstly that it clearly will not work and is not intended to. Its only purpose is to make money. Secondly that it is just the beginning of a roll out of more and more vaccines that will not work.

Thirdly, that it is very dangerous indeed. It is almost a guaranteed autoimmune disease and past research on coronavirus vaccines are clear that vaccination makes the subsequent infection far, far worse. All those vaccines have ever done is make money for those producing them. Now that the Pharmers are immune from prosecution, ask yourself whether safety or profit is their main motivation. They have nothing to fear if their vaccine kills millions.

I will not be taking the vaccine. Call me all the names you want and take the vaccine if you want.

I’ve stopped arguing with the Church of Climatology. It’s time to stop arguing with the Church of Covid.

Enjoy your End of Days.

Wrong Flag

The breakthrough results from trials of Oxford University’s coronavirus vaccine are based on ‘shaky science’, an expert has warned.

Okay, it’s the Daily Mail so you wouldn’t expect them to question this. They are journalists, not scientists.

So, someone who actually knows what they’re talking about has raised a flag over the Oxford vaccine. Her complaint is quite correct, the trial they did was really badly done. However, the article goes on to tell you what the three vaccines do and what they cost. The Oxford one is the only one even approaching a traditional vaccine and it’s by far the cheapest.

Basically, they have inserted spike protein RNA from Covid into an adenovirus, one of the wide range of viruses that cause the common cold. It’s low risk because even if a live one got through it would only give you a cold.

Then they grow that remodelled virus in animal cell culture and they have a common cold virus with a spike protein from Covid on its surface. The immune system will attack the virus and make antibodies against the spike protein (as well as the rest of the virus), so it’s ready for Covid if it appears.

It doesn’t need to be frozen because the virus doesn’t need to be viable. It only needs to be intact enough for the immune system to find it. This is the one that’s stored in the fridge. It doesn’t matter if that virus is incapable of infecting, in fact it’s better if it’s not. The immune system will attack it anyway.

Our flag waver raised no concerns about the other two vaccines. These are both mRNA vaccines, purely experimental, never been tried in humans before. They trick your cells into producing Covid spike protein themselves in the belief that that will be benign, your immune system will only attack the spike protein and you’ll be immune. In the short term that will work since you will indeed produce antibodies against any foreign protein that gets into your body. Trials have shown that it does indeed work in the short term.


For this to work, the mRNA has to get into your body cells. There doesn’t seem to be much information on how they plan to do that. There is a way, it’s been tried several times before and it can work.

You load your mRNA into a virus. The virus enters the cell and delivers its payload, which you hope is only that specific mRNA strand. But you have to load it in a viral coat. Just the spike protein code isn’t going to be enough, you need to produce a lot of this virus and if it’s only producing spike protein you can’t grow it. So you also need the genes to make the rest of the viral coat in there too. Basically, you now have a virus. If you want to keep it active you have to freeze it.

Hopefully it can only get into the first cell it meets and can’t replicate further. This is unlikely. You’re going to be injected with millions, odds are good that a few fully-armed live ones will get in there. Again, if you’re lucky, the few live ones won’t get very far before the immune system hammers them. But it gets worse.

If your own body cells are producing spike protein and that ends up in the cell membrane – remember it’s biochemically designed to sit in a fat layer around the virus so it can do that just as well in your own cells’ fatty membranes – then the immune system will not just attack the spike protein. It will attack the cell carrying it.

The mRNA vaccines have the potential to set up an autoimmune disease, where your immune system attacks your own body cells. Once that starts it can never be cured. There is no going back. You will be taking medication for the rest of your life and the Pharmers will be shovelling money into the bank. Oh, don’t imagine they do any of this for your benefit. They are doing it for the money. It’s business, pure and simple.

So the Oxford vaccine hasn’t been properly trialled. If I absolutely had to have a vaccine I’d still go for that one. I do not want to be a test subject for the long term effects of an experimental (and frankly quite mad) new type of vaccine.

A note on the reported ‘side effects’ so far – If your immune system is set off by an invading protein, it’s quite normal to feel sore at the site of entry, and to maybe get a headache or feel tired as your immune system is all fired up. That’s nothing to worry about. Your immune system is responding to an infection. It doesn’t know it’s just a vaccine.

The problem is in the long term effects. From what I can see of the Oxford vaccine, I wouldn’t expect any. Well, there are always going to be a few who react badly to it, that’s true of any vaccine or indeed any kind of medical treatment, but I would expect those to be few. Unless there’s something else in there that I don’t know about.

The mRNA vaccine is another story. You won’t see autoimmune effects within days. They could take months or years to get to the point where diagnosis is absolute and then it would be a brave doctor indeed who would attribute that to a vaccine far in the past. There might not even be an absolutely certain way to do it. The original mRNA will be gone by then.

The mRNA will not insert itself into your DNA unless an enzyme called reverse transcriptase is present. That enzyme is only found in retroviruses like HIV – which does insert itself into your DNA. Coronaviruses don’t have it. So the mRNA will gradually break down and stop working. Does that mean your immune system will stop killing you? Maybe.

Immune system cells are single cells. One cell, no brain or nervous system, they react purely biochemically. They cannot reason. Once they identify a cell as ‘foreign’ they will produce antibodies to kill it. Not just against the spike protein that’s been inserted. That cell is now ‘enemy’ and all its surface proteins are potential targets.

So even after the Covid spike protein is no longer produced, the other, previously ‘normal’, proteins on the cell surfaces are marked as targets. When the immune system decides normal cels are targets you get arthritis, multiple sclerosis, any autoimmune disease… roll the dice, see what comes up. Since it’s injected into muscle the most likely bad outcome is a muscle wasting disease. You’ll get weak. Easily controlled. Unable to put up any resistance to any show of force.

Now consider: what is it that the globalists have been quite open about wanting for a long time now?

Oh, and it will be mandatory. Not in name but if you ever want to ride a bus again you’ll need to prove vaccination. Once that foot is in the door, the sky’s the limit. Matt the Needle has already said he wants to apply the same approach to seasonal flu. Flu vaccine will be the next one you can’t function without. And then, any other vaccine that takes his fancy.

If you absolutely have to have it, if you have no choice, take the Oxford one. It’s the least risky by far.

That’s probably why they want to get rid of it.

Distractions: Luciferase and Borgbots

My undergraduate project in 1981 was on Eiseinia foetida, a banded eathworm that lives mainly in compost heaps. In the few weeks available to my undergraduate self, I was tasked with finding out whether this worm had a gut microflora that differed from the material it ingested. My conclusion from that short project was that I found nothing in the gut that wasn’t also in the soil.

Given much more time, and modern DNA analysis techniques, I might have found something different. I had a few weeks of dissecting compost heap worm guts (my career developed into increasingly smelly and horrible things later) and I reported what I found. Interesting microscopy, I wish I had had access to a microscope with a camera.

Anyway, one of my contemporaries at the time had a project involving a bacterium, Vibrio fischeri. If you’ve ever managed to get to the beach in warm weather, away from any street lights, you might have seen phosphorescence. Flashes of light in the breaking waves at the shoreline. That’s Vibrio fischeri, among many others. My contemporary had a non-stinky project, he’d delight in showing off his rotating flasks of luminescence in the incubator rooms.

It reacts to oxygen by producing light, in direct relation to the amount of oxygen. It does this down to nanomoles of oxygen (for the nonscientist that means ‘almost, but not quite, bugger all’). I used that same bacterium later to measure tiny amounts of oxygen through a photomultiplier. That was later superseded by membrane inlet mass spectrometry. Oh I have played with some fantastic gadgets in my time 🙂

So. The way this works is by the action of an enzyme on a light emitting substrate. The substrate is luciferin. The enzyme is luciferase. They are so named because of the light they produce, after the Biblical Lucifer (Beautiful Light) and not because we had to perform experiments within a pentagram lit by candles and wearing a cape and pointy hat. That was optional.

Luciferase is not a new thing. It is not linked to Satanic dealings in any way. It’s a convenient name for an enzyme that, paired with the proper substrate, produces light. It’s been known about for many decades and has probably existed forever. This does not mean it cannot be twisted to nefarious purposes, it just means it wasn’t intended to be. it’s just a name for a bacterial light producing phenomenon.

Next, hydrogel. This is a gel that is mostly water. I’ve had it applied to wounds before, more times than I would have liked to have been wounded. It speeds healing and stops you picking at scabs by keeping them hydrated so they don’t go dry. It does not contain Borg nanobots. It is water in a loose gel.

I’ve been fascinated by nanotechnology for a long time, especially those little machines that can only be seen with an electron or scanning-tunnelling microscope. Almost, sometimes literally, made of nothing but molecules, they turn incredibly tiny cogs with incredibly tiny levers. It’s fascinating but there is no room in there, even now, for any kind of computing power. They don’t do much yet. I’m sure that will change but really, it’s a long way from the Borg nanobots that turn you into a drone within minutes.

All that said, I will not be accepting the silly Covid vaccine. This disease is far less scary than measles. I don’t need a vaccine. I’ve had so many vaccines you could probably rip my arm off like a stamp, but not this one. Or rather, any of the three.

There is one from Oxford. It needs to be kept in a fridge. That’s okay, that’s normal. There’s usually one millilitre or so and a doctor or nurse can bring it up to body temperature before injecting just by holding it for a few seconds.

Another one needs to be frozen. That’s not normal. The third needs to be frozen at -70C. That is far from normal. That is the temperature we’d use for DNA or RNA samples. Or viruses. Ask how the vaccine is stored before you take it. If it’s not in the fridge, don’t touch it.

The video I linked to claims the little needles in the plaster-vax will pierce your cells and inject RNA. Nope. Pierce the cell membrane with what, to the cell, is a 9-inch shell, and the cell is dead. You will not get a subtle addition that way. It will get in through a virus vector. That’s not new, it’s been tried many times to fix genetic diseases and unfortunately never succeeded. Very much worth a try for the good intent ones though.

Boris has said that the vaccine will not be mandatory. The government, his government, has also mooted the idea of a ‘freedom pass’. Test negative and you can live. Test positive and it’s the Gulags. It does not need to be mandatory if you cannot live your life without it. You can refuse it if you want but you’ll die alone if you do.

If I took a test today and it was negatiove, I can move among you at will tomorrow. Am I safe to do so? I might have caught the disease ten minutes after the test and be waving my ‘covid-free bracelet’ at your face. Testing negative just means you haven’t caugt it yet.

So it will not be compulsory to have this vaccine but if you can’t prove you had it, you’re going nowhere. Is that really non-compulsory?

Take off the tinoil. Transhumanism is a thing, has been for a long time, they really think they can do this. Despite the warnings of the Cybermen and the Borg, they are trying for it anyway. Like communism, they think their version will work. Not for you. For them.

This does not make me complacent about the imprinted ‘vaccine status’ thing, whether chip or (frequently replenised) luciferase. I know what the original luciferase does, I know what hydrogel is but those things, like anything else, can be perverted. And will be.

Everything you see is false now. Everything is based on ‘divide and distract’. Relax, look around you and see what has really changed. Remember how it used to be. Remember where you came from. Remember who you are.

Rik Mayall was right. Burn your television.

Slap af! Slap af godt!

Når et problem kommer langt, du skal slap af…

Okay, it’s pidgin Danish, I’ve only been doing this for 6 months and they use each word for anything up to 25 different meanings so I reckon I’m doing about as well as anyone who was born in Denmark six months ago. I mean, take the word ‘taget’ which can mean ‘took’ or ‘the roof’. Or ‘dyr’, which is ‘animal’ and also ‘expensive’. Let’s not even start on ‘som’ or ‘hvis’ or ‘på’. Like the caterpillar in Alice, these words mean exactly what you want them to mean.

‘Slap af’ means ‘relax’ so it’s really the opposite of the original song. I just didn’t expect ‘slap af’ to mean that… but we probably shouldn’t go there. It’s lucky I learned this one because if someone in Denmark had told me to slap af, I might have taken it very much the wrong way.

It is, however, a good time to sit back and slap af. No, stop that, I meant the Danish version. Relax.

Chill. Let your blood pressure down. You probably have a valve somewhere, modern medicine refuses to tell you where it is. Usually it involves pulling your finger to let the pressure out.

We have the debacle of an election in America. Very important to Americans, obviously, but its final result will have knock on effects all over the planet. For the avoidance of doubt, I don’t want either of them to win. Unfortunately one of them has to and we’re going to be stuck with one or the other for four years. This is, to me, a matter of secondary importance. We have far too much trouble with our own idiots in charge in the UK to get too concerned with matters elsewhere.

Specifically Scotland, where the mini-government, run by the mini-Kim-Jong-Nippy has now declared fines for entering or leaving Scotland. It’ll cost you £60 to get in or out. Trust me, at this time of year it’s not worth it. Whether they have the authority to do this (they don’t) doesn’t bother them. They’re stupid enough to do it anyway. If this place ever gets independence with this lot in charge of it, hell, take my money at the border.

Meanwhile Boris, and by extension the group once known as the Conservative Party is being run by Carrie Wormtongue. If you’ve seen the Lord of the Rings films (or read the books as I did back in the 1970s) you’ll understand how Boris is perfectly fitting his role as King Theoden.

An MP by the name of Cleverly, who clearly isn’t, has said that the internal combustion engine would never have been accepted as a replacement for horses by government diktat.

That’s not what happened.

As with modern electric cars, early motor cars were primitive, expensive and had limited range. They were the toys of the rich. Eventually, and largely thanks to Henry Ford, they became affordable. Over time they became available to those who weren’t rich. Over time, petrol and diesel refuelling stations appeared that made cars more useful.

Until then, for most people, the horse was a better option. However, the horse needed to be fed and mucked out and exercised and groomed even if you didn’t go anywhere for a week. The car can just sit there until you’re ready to turn the key. It was lowered cost and convenience that changed us from horse and cart to car. Not government diktat.

Boris, under the influence of Wormtongue, has no interest in this natural graduation. Electric cars are currently expensive, have limited range and are nowhere near as good as even a small 4×4 for country roads. There are few places to charge them. All of this will probably change over time but Wormtongue wants it done tomorrow.

Boris does not have klokkene to tell her it’s impossible. He is a henpecked useless beta girlie man. The conservative party, what’s left of it, is now run by someone madder than the single Green MP that ridiculous band of maniacs have managed to get elected. The health minister is, frankly, demented now. He is banning hugs. Seriously. They will not be in power after the next election. At this point I’d say they’d be lucky not to have to campaign while picking the last bits of tar and feathers off themselves.

Our alternative? As with America, I don’t want either of them to win. Both main parties are entirely useless.

So what will happen? History tells us, if anyone bothers to look at that any more. This kind of disenfranchisement led to Hitler. Stalin. Pol Pot. Mao-tse Tung. Hugo Chavez. Che Guevara. Fidel Castro. All came from nowhere to get themselves put in charge of countries they then ruined. And then a lot of people died. Every time.

Maybe it will be different this time. I doubt it. People keep blaming it all on ‘Da Joos’ but this is wrong. The blame lies with four, maybe five of ‘Da Joos’ along with quite a few Goyim. The rest are just like us Goyim, just trying to live, just trying to get along. They know nothing of the Rockefeller plans, the Kalergi plan, the Georgia Guidestones. They are just living their one and only lives, like the rest of us, the best way they can.

However, somethig nasty is coming and it will win. You know why it will win?

Because it has separated humanity with incredible efficiency. Different skin colour? You’re the enemy! Different gender? You’re the enemy! Different religion? You’re the enemy! Vote for the other side? You’re the enemy! And so on.

None of these are the real enemy. Relax, slap af, chill, give your mind time to actually think.

Your imagined enemies are the same as you. They have houses and cars and jobs and children. Just like you. They wash the car and cut the grass just like you. They send their children to school just like you. They buy the same things in the same shops as you.

They are human. Like you. Exactly like you. They might not vote the same way. They might not agree with your politics. Maybe they are individuals and not the drones you want them to be, maybe they are actual humans. Like you.

Your real enemies are those pitting you against your neighbours. They are few. very few. They could not hope to succeed if we just relax, chill, focus and… notice them. That can’t happen while we are all fighting each other.

It really doesn’t matter, in any two party system anywhere, which one wins an election. Those parties are two cheeks of the same arse. They are in it for themselves, not for you. There are exceptions, but those are few and if you want to find them, look for the ones getting the most hate even from their own side. The political machine does not like dissent within its own ranks.

It’s probably too late now. So many factions with their own grievances see every other faction as the enemy. There really isn’t time to convince them, and they don’t want to be convinced anyway. They are happy shouting the slogans they’ve been fed and none of them think they’ll be the ones rounded up and sent off to the gulags.

I rather suspect they will all be rounded up. The goal, remember, is to reduce the human global population to five hundred million. That means getting rid of six and a half billion people.

Whoever you are, your chances really aren’t that good.

Out of book limbo

Yes, this place has been through another of its silent periods. I was preparing two books for publication at once. How? Well, both authors had supplied cover images and Cade F.O.N Apollyon stepped in as editor for Ruth’s book. That saved me a lot of time and work.

Now available are Mark Ellott’s ‘A Moment in Time’ and Ruth Bonner’s ‘Just Call Me Roob‘. If you have an Amazon allergy, the ebooks are also on Smashwords. Hopefully they’ll also soon spread to Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and more. Most of the rest have, there just seems to be an issue with Underdog Anthologies at Smashwords that’s a pain in the arse – but they make so little I haven’t yet bothered to worry about it.

There are three more I’d like completed before Christmas, plus the Christmas anthology of course. Then I might do something I never imagined I’d do when this all started with the Underdog Anthology in December 2016. Heck, back then I thought I was optimistic to call it Volume 1, and the Christmas book will be number 13! Which would have been a bad numbering sequence, but for 2020 it’s probably quite appropriate.

In December, I might actually need to close to submissions for a few weeks.

Yes, in four years I’ve gone from wondering whether I could find enough authors to fill one slim volume of stories, to actually having to close submissions for a few weeks so I can catch up! I’ll close on December 1st so if you have that massive tome of a fantasy novel spanning ninety generations of elves all set to send, you can still send it. I won’t guarantee to do anything about it before Christmas though, three books and an anthology plus some progress on my own writing means I’ll probably manage to take a half-day off for Christmas day. Well nobody can visit, might as well do something useful with all this time.

I still have to do the three volume annual thing but since I cut all the anthology prices to the bone for the duration of this nonsense, there doesn’t seem to be any hurry. I couldn’t charge more than $1.99 for the eBook version at the moment anyway.

If only all this work made any money. If you’re looking for a surprise stocking filler for Christmas, do take a look at the Leg Iron Books selection. There’s something for everyone (except the Gary Glitters and convicted councillors) in there. The authors will appreciate every penny of royalties, they’ll appreciate it even more if the royalties are more than a pound. Seriously, there’s some talented writers on sale at bargain basement prices over there. I even have a range of my own books in there of varying thicknesses to suit almost any wonky table leg.

Anyway, I have not entirely withdrawn from the real world – well, no more than usual. Today we did manage to visit Son and the grandchildren. Granddaughter is nearly three, her mother worries that the lockdown means she’s not developing social skills. She’s my granddaughter. She has no need of social skills, she just needs blade and crossbow lessons. Grandson is eight weeks old and has already mastered the art of the disapproving scowl. They are both developing perfectly normally. If Billy Gates Gruff wants to mess with this DNA, good luck. You have no idea what you might produce.

This vaccine is really gaining some acolytes. They think it will fix everything. The fact is, this vaccine isn’t a vaccine. It’s going to insert mRNA into your cells to make them produce proteins that are foreign to the body. This is, by any measure, not a good idea. You can pretend that sex is a construct to your five-or-seven-chambered heart’s content but biochemistry – trust me on this – is fixed.

At this point the Vaccine Brigade will call me an anti-vaxxer. I am a retired microbiologist. I have been vaccinated with every legitimate vaccine going. Some that the general public never get offered because they aren’t working with the horrible things I’ve worked with. My children and grandchildren are vaccinated. The only vaccine I have ever refused is flu vaccine because it’s money-making crap. I will definitely refuse the Billy Gates Gruff’s not-a-vaccine.

Real vaccines work like this. You take dead cells or attenuated (they can’t infect) live cells or even just appropriate bits of protein and inject them. Your immune system finds them and says ‘What’s this? What’s all this infecting? We’ll have no trouble here’ followed by ‘This is a local body for local cells, there’s nothing here for you’ and proceeds to wipe them out with antibodies.

The antibody production then declines. This is normal. It does not mean you have lost immunity. It means the immune system doesn’t waste time, protein and energy producing antibodies against something it’s already defeated. It would be like an army going through a battlefield eternally re-shooting the enemy it’s killed. Waste of bullets.

Instead, the immune system cells are able to store the information to make particular antibodies against things they have seen before. They don’t need to make them all the time. When the same pathogen appears, the immune system doesn’t need to go through all the ‘What is this and how do we kill it?’ routine. It just goes ‘Oh yeah, that one. Load up Antibody 73 and get firing, lads’.

The Billy Gates Gruff ‘vaccine’ does not do this. Bear in mind that the immune system recognises antigens – bits of surface material, not whole cells – and destroys the cell carrying them. The entire cell.

So, the Billy Gates Gruff ‘vaccine’ makes your own cells produce surface proteins that your own immune system recognises as foreign. It does not simply block the protein. It kills the cell carrying it. Your own body cells.

This is not a vaccine. This is an autoimmune disease in a syringe. I don’t care if they never let me enter a pub or restaurant or travel on a plane again. Not that we will be able to afford planes once the budget airlines have been wiped out. I am not going to be injected with this monstrosity.

You want to believe it will save you from what has turned out to be a bad flu? Fine. You go ahead. I won’t gloat, I probably won’t be one of the six people allowed to attend your funeral anyway.

You want to call it tinfoil hattery, go ahead. Or get two degrees in an appropriate subject, live through an entire career dealing with infectious disease and retire with a shed filled with lab equipment, like I have, and then maybe you’ll give it some thought.

Or maybe not. Maybe you’re excited to be injected with an experimental not-a-vaccine that claims 90% effectiveness against your own immune system’s 99%. Maybe you really want the aches and headaches of approaching arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Maybe you hate yourself so much that the agonising death of your body, cell by cell, is a delight to be savoured.

You just know it’s going to be called ‘Long Covid’, to get more idiots to take the thing, don’t you?

Meanwhile there is nobody sensible in charge. Boris is the Henpecked Premier, doing whatever his squeeze tells him to even though he must know, deep down, it will utterly destroy the country he was elected to lead.

That other bastion of Western Civilisation, America, seems to have no idea what it’s doing any more. That last election was a farce that would have embarrassed even the EU presidential election. Still nobody knows who won and I think it should be down to a cage fight between Trump and Biden. Go on, America. Election by Thunderdome. Two old fogeys enter, one old fogey leaves.

Maybe we should choose leaders who have a future beyond a rich retirement in the Cayman islands.

It doesn’t matter now. The game is on, Panoptica is approaching reality at a horrifying speed and it’s too late to stop it. Like climate change. It’s happening, it can’t be stopped, it’s not going the way they think it’s going and it’s adapt or die.

Darwin was right about that. It’s not evolution unless we turn into White Walkers. It’s adaptation.

We’ve done it before.

The big question is… how many of us have the guts to do it again?
