I’d like to begin by stating that I’m no great fan of Dominic Cummings, in fact the whole idea of ‘special advisers’ seems to me to be effectively becoming a system of unelected power beyond the reach of the ballot box. Despite this, his treatment over the past few days has been an example of the most disgusting bullying behaviour by mainstream media and I’d like to go on record as being utterly opposed to it.
People must be in no doubt, the current media furore over whether Mr Cummings broke the guidelines, law or spirit of lockdown is a dangerous collaborative effort between remain leaning political activists of all colours and the media.
It has already been documented elsewhere that there was an advanced plan to ask Brussels for an extension to the transition period which was only halted when Cummings returned to work at No10 and put an end to it.
The extent to which the mainstream media wants Brexit stopped cannot be overstated, every single sinew is being stretched in the towers of the BBC, Sky and the others to find the tiniest shred of evidence to discredit or smear any of the key architects of the Brexit process whilst similar infractions committed by those on the other side of the argument go unreported.
Casting a sinister shadow over this struggle is the continuing menace of COVID 19 – now really no more than a shambolic ruse for the deconstruction of public services and the withdrawal of care to those whose treatments are complex or expensive.
I am sensing a slight change in the mood on social media – of course this is a purely subjective view and clearly my social networks are not your social networks but very gradually there is an awareness developing that there are inconsistencies between what we are being told and what is real.
Anyone with even a rudimentary knowledge of biology can see that the concept of transmission in open spaces during warm weather is simply preposterous. Viruses are minute bags of RNA wrapped in a molecule thick layer of fats, heat and sunlight will break these fragile bubbles open very quickly.
The CDC in the US has disproven the idea that transmission by contact transmission is viable, media films showing people transmitting grease stains under UV light are very convincing but just because you can transmit a smudge of grease from hand to surface to hand does not always mean that a virus survives the journey intact.
More and more people are beginning to see that the scare stories not transforming into real danger. Only this morning I saw a thread on Facebook where people were asked to say if they had had COVID or knew anyone who did, less than 2 out of 10 people on a thread of over 80 posts replied with any sort of positive answer.
More worryingly I saw an appeal from a young man yesterday whose father’s lifesaving cancer surgery had been cancelled due to the unavailability of an ITU bed in direct contravention of the undertaking given by senior politicians that urgent and lifesaving operations would be prioritised.
If you’ve read my previous article you’ll know I spend quite a bit of time in hospitals and whilst I wait in various locations with half the seats taped off some worrying thoughts come to mind. I remember these places before the lockdown and they were not like they are now. These places used to bustle with activity, people were densely packed in waiting areas and there was constant foot traffic to and fro.
Given that all non urgent treatment is now paused, the question must be asked is how on earth will these hospitals be able to restart their services on anything like the scale they used to run given that they will no doubt employ every single social distancing measure they can think of.
The NHS has been deified over the past months and even those who question the politicians seem hesitant to criticise the NHS but how does an organisation that has become the nexus of risk aversion recover its previous capacity in the same buildings, same corridors and same wards?
The simple answer is that it is not possible. You cannot take away half the seating and have the same number of people in a waiting room. You cannot space people two metres apart where previously they sat shoulder to shoulder and then have the same throughput.
I’ve sat in dozens of outpatient waiting rooms and they’re generally pretty cramped and pretty busy, at this time they’re almost empty.
I would be very wary of bureaucrats or politicians telling you that the NHS will return to normal, on the basis of their new infection control protocols it will simply not be possible.
Here’s the rub, I don’t think the NHS staff have worked this out yet but they have unwittingly become part of an elaborate scheme to deflate the size of public services and COVID will be used as the rationale for people to embrace the withdrawal of the services they once took for granted.
If you think this sounds too deeply cynical to be possible just ask yourself how Priti Patel can appear on TV and say she’s getting tough on illegal immigration whilst standing by while boat after boat after boat turns up on the beaches of Kent – the process of which we now know is being facilitated by authorities on both sides of the channel.
Saying one thing and doing another has become a hallmark of all governments, despite the talk the one we have now is no different.
