We finally know more about Boris Johnson’s coronavirus response after important scientific documents were exposed to the country with more than a dozen papers being published that show precisely how the government’s scientific advice during the pandemic unfolded.
The documents from SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) show Boris Johnson eventually imposed the lockdown after he was warned intensive care would fill up inside a fortnight.
And he claimed he was shaking hands with everyone, on the same day experts said he should tell the public to quit shaking hands and the papers are a crucial discovery because the Prime Minister has always said he was guided by the science.
They show this is more or less true, but the documents also show the science is never one clear piece of advice and in several cases, the government’s response did not match up with what the documents stated.
For instance, scientists appeared to say they were satisfied with a London only shutdown of bars and restaurants rather than a UK wide cessation, but the government, following days of deliberation, went with a UK wide shutdown instead.
Meanwhile, the documents spell out the dangers in the next phase when lockdown starts to relax and they warn any easing of lockdown must be extremely gradual, and give people back some of their leisure pursuits, not just restart the economy.
And the scientists warn that rogue bosses could use any method of immunity passport to hand more hazardous employment to those who’ve previously had COVID 19.
Boris Johnson took his lockdown decision after being informed intensive care beds would fill up in 11 days and a consensus view on March 20, from the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling, warned the virus was increasing every three to five days.
It stated it was extremely probable that we would see ICU capacity in London breached by the end of the month, even if extra steps were put in position with the rest of the United Kingdom being 1-2 weeks behind London.
And in the absence of additional measures being put into position, it was possible that ICU capacity would be breached in other areas.
The Prime Minister, who had stopped short of a complete lockdown, then announced one on March 23 and SAGE warned even a lockdown wouldn’t stop capacity being breached, because it would take two to three weeks to take effect.
Glory to our leader Boris Johnson that has fought the coronavirus on the beaches, fought it on our streets, defended our island from the virus, whatever the human sacrifice, perhaps 50,000 and still climbing.
We shall forget to fight it on the landing grounds and our airports are gloriously fighting it in our hospitals without PPE.
We fight it in our fields and we shall fight it on our hills, we shall never quit, and glory to our leader Boris Johnson that fuels our hearts with love, our tables with food, brings hope to the needy, fills our hearts with happiness but doesn’t bring PPE to our NHS.
Our glorious leader fills our mortuaries with our old and labels them “Do Not Resuscitate”. He shook hands with pride and wants to do more testing that should have been done three months ago.
The death rate is indicative of Torie’s constant chipping away at the health service for decades. It was reversed somewhat under Labour but then David Cameron and his other Eton cohorts have, despite all their protestations have carried on the practice.
The Tories at the top have an inbuilt hatred of the NHS because it will always there to act as a reminder of how much better Labour was and there will be people reading this who voted Tory and Brexit, well, now you can see what the top people have done.
We’re always boasting in this country how we have the 5th/6th biggest economy in the world but that means nothing when we have to go begging to China and Turkey for PPE and now our death rate, with this virus, is among the world’s worst.
Our government, led by Boris Johnson, is criminally guilty of neglect. We had all the signs shown early on of what was coming and our government didn’t respond respectively, and Boris Johnson has shown that his judgement is as inadequate as his two forerunners.
Exercise Cygnus, a three-day training on how to deal with a pandemic, is carried out, involving all major government agencies, the NHS and local authorities. It showed gaping holes in Britain’s Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response plan.
These exercises were supposed to prepare the government for something like this, but it seems they were knowledgeable of the problem but didn’t do much about it.
How to catch a virus, just book yourself into a care home, enjoy your retirement, which is sad considering the older generation are the ones that gave the Tories their support on Brexit and now the government are stabbing them in the back.
This government is irresponsible, incompetent and inadequate from the top to the bottom, they’re slow to respond and slow to support the elderly, in fact, old people are the last in the Tory food chain.
And it seems to be an out of sight, out of mind policy which appears to work for Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock and the United Kingdom has lost faith in the way this slow sleaze Tory Party has operated on the vital heartland of Great Britain.
The government didn’t close borders when the pandemic began to spread and there should have been no travel to the United Kingdom, period and any returning nationals should have gone into quarantine for 2 weeks.
The government, so we were told, was aware of this impending situation back in January this year but following a COBRA meeting, Matt Hancock told us there was low risk for the United Kingdom and their casual and almost superior attitude toward the unfolding drama was almost felonious.
Had we read this chain of events had unfolded in some country other than our own we would have been shocked and full of scepticism and naivety.
The idea is that, soon, lockdowns around the world will be lifted but only for those resistant to the coronavirus.
You will have to be tested to see if you’ve had the disease or be given a vaccine. Once that’s happened, you’ll be issued a document, identity card or tattoo.
To travel and work freely, you’ll have to show evidence that you’re not contagious and in this way, millions will be fooled into getting some variety of mark.
But this is Orwellian and authoritarian and it’s a way of controlling people and in this day and age, there’s no justice.
You can find out if your neighbour’s car has tax and MOT but not if your next-door-neighbour is a rapist. You can take your children to the seaside but the council can hide the signs warning that the water is contaminated.
You can go to a restaurant rated zero for all food safety, or the restaurants don’t display their ratings or display out of date ones.
And you can bypass all taxes by selling on Amazon, Facebook, eBay and boot sales and now you can rob and stab people if you want and still walk free and you can go fox hunting even though it’s forbidden because law and order is fiction in this country.
