A friend of mine has just sent this to his local MP. Caroline Ansell in Eastbourne.
It’s well worth a read.
There is a lot of misinformation flying about from all corners in regards to the ‘covid’ issue. For anyone with an open mind, it is not simple to differentiate from what is true, false, deliberately misinterpreted or naively misinterpreted. I have been down many rabbit holes with this whole thing, exploring and researching many of the theories of, where it comes from, how virulent it is etc.
I used to train Primary care staff, GP’s and nurses so I know quite a few as friends from all around the UK and also worked a consultant for Social Services in several London Boroughs. I have spoken with various health and social care practitioners including two GP’s, five nurses, one consultant, one A&E consultant, a covid ward nurse, three care home managers and a manager at a Sussex Hospital. All of whom I have no reason to mistrust.
So my research, although it has been widespread across the net including WHO, ONS, .gov and various other sites, what I lay out here is anecdotal evidence from many of the above and friends & family…. All of whom I trust and have ‘no axe to grind’.
Some of this you can go and research yourself if you choose to, some you will have to trust I am telling the truth… you will have to decide that when you read it. On the request of the individuals, I have anonymised this data, through fear of reprisal as we are now regularly seeing against anyone who is not agreeing with the Government narrative. Below you will find some bullet-pointed data for your consideration.
• A friend of mine died last week from a massive brain haemorrhage. Her husband was told that if they put covid on the death certificate, they could release the body straight away without the need for a post mortem.
• The husband of my mums’ hairdresser died six weeks ago of a sudden heart attack. His wife (my mums’ hairdresser) was not allowed in the ambulance. She followed up in the car, and by the time she got there, he was dead and had covid down as the cause of death on certificate.
• The covid test is not accurate and only tests for a protein in your system that suggests you may be or have had one of many ‘coronaviruses’ – not just Covid.
• A patient at a Sussex hospital was tested seven times in two days, and results came back four positive and three negatives.
• The daughter of a family friend was kicked in the head by her horse a few weeks ago and died. She had covid put on her death certificate.
• A relative who works at Kings in London told me that Doctors have been directed to put covid on as many death certificates as possible regardless of NOT testing. If the patient has had one of any of the many symptoms before death, the covid claim can be justified.
• The father-in-law of a dog walker we see every day died of stage 4 cancer and had covid put on his death certificate.
• If you have had any coronavirus including covid and recovered the ‘test’ will show you up as ‘positive’.
• A nurse (of 25 years training to be a consultant nurse) told me that they had been told that putting covid on any death cert saves the NHS time and money as no post-mortem is required.
• Two residents from a friends EMI care home died within 24 hours of each other. Both very ill and were ‘ready to go’ as he put it. The hospital put covid on both death certs, and subsequently, they locked down the home, sent all staff home to self-isolate for 14 days. All residents locked in their rooms and temp staff bought in which nearly screwed the whole thing.
• A friend who is the area manager for four care homes was told that anyone with signs of covid must be locked down and an automatic DNR imposed. He was told that no-one from the homes should be brought to hospital. This was across the board in England.
• The number of cases relates to ‘positive’ tests. (we already know that these are inaccurate at best) Cases are rising because more and more people are being tested—most with no symptoms at all.
• The world health organisation (Maria Van Kerkhove) stood up and clearly stated that an individual that is Asymptomatic is NOT infectious.
• ONS stated that it believes that 20% of deaths attributed to covid are actually not. (Based on what I have heard first hand, I believe this is a huge understatement)
• They government doubled the test rate to meet targets overnight by claiming that 1 test was 2. The one up your nose was one, and the one down your throat was 2.
• The Government are currently complaining that they are oversubscribed with people wanting tests and not meeting target as people without symptoms and school kids and travellers are taking the test…. Just think about that logic for a minute?? They are doing the maximum number of tests, but not getting as many positives as they would like is what they mean! If people without symptoms are supposedly infectious, then surely it matters not who gets tested as we are all potentially infected?
• My friends’ mother died of stage 4 cancer three weeks ago, and covid was put down as the cause…. (note .. so far every death I have been made aware of in recent weeks has had covid put down as the cause… that is not 20% as the ONS state but 100%... and that is just the ones I have heard of.
• Billions of healthy people across the globe are being forced to wear face masks.
• Hundreds of thousands if not millions of healthy people may be placed under 14-day house arrest with the threat of £10k fine, due to the Track & Test system being rolled out.
• Fear destroys the immune system making the individual more susceptible to any disease.
• Being in a state of ‘Alert’ also put you in a ‘fight or flight’ state and destroys the immune system.
• Suicides have soared over the last three months.
• The manager at a Sussex Hospital took a sample from her cat’s mouth and sent it off for testing, and it came back ‘positive’.
• Domestic violence has soared exponentially over the last five months.
• Thousands of profitable businesses and the livelihoods of millions of people have been destroyed… This is going to get much much worse in the next two months when the furlough reduces more and stops.
• Every client I have seen in the last two months bar one says they are going to make at least 20% of staff redundant. Many of them said it would be up to 50%.
• Mental health, depression, anxiety and re-trauma has gone through the roof, and this will boom even more in coming months as people become unemployed and many evicted due to inability to pay their mortgages and rents.
• Corona Viruses come at the end of flu season every year.
• If you have had a flu jab more than three years running, you are over 30% more likely to catch coronavirus.
• 2019-2020 flu season over 16,000 people died from flu in the UK.
• Over 90% of those above had been vaccinated against it.
• Reports of child abuse cases are down 75% in the last six months - this is because the majority of abuse cases are picked up at school by teachers and reported to social services and Police.
• Of those reported to have died from covid over 97% had a morbidity count of 2.5 or more.
I could rattle on here Caroline and have so much more I could say but won’t.
I am NOT anti-vax... I am PRO Safe Vaccine. I am NOT anti-mask but PRO appropriate Mask (for those that really need them). I am not anti-Government but PRO Honest Government. I am not a conspiracy theorist but someone looking for the TRUTH amongst the barrage of BS being spread by everyone.
I get very frustrated by the power of the mainstream media that continually pours fear into millions of naïve people’s minds who turn on the TV, read the papers and believe everything they see and hear. They have turned families and friends against each other, and now we are seeing people going back to work with very different views, and it is not healthy.
The MSM is the power and the mouthpiece of what is controlling the Government.
Think back to March April 2018... Theresa May was struggling, and Brexit was the ‘Fear’ topic of the day. I walked into a new client at 9am and said ‘You never guess what?... Theresa May has fallen on her sword, and Boris is now acting Prime Minister’ The sound of shock, horror & disbelief could be heard two blocks up. ‘No way ‘….. ‘that idiot’….. ‘that lying axxxhole ‘…… ‘that buffoon ‘….. ‘How the hell could that happen ‘……. were just some of the comments. I let it run for a while then reminded them of the date… 1st April…. They all laughed, and we chatted for a while saying how absolutely surreal it would be if that ‘fool’ ended up running the country!!
Fast forward a few months and the media had convinced the UK Government and then the UK public that Boris was the most qualified, experienced and knowledgeable person out of everyone in the UK to run it!!
I don’t pretend to understand what is really going on and why….. but what I do know is that based on the above, the masses are being misled at best. Maybe for their own good…. Who knows?? Everything above is accurate to the best of my knowledge and I will stand in a court of law to defend it.
I am, therefore writing to express my most profound concern about the Coronavirus Act renewal motion. In particular, I urge you to support the amendment to repeal Schedule 21 on Wednesday 30th September, to protect rights and justice in the UK.
The Coronavirus Act represents the most significant expansion of executive power in a generation. Some of the powers in the Act are extreme, unexplained and simply unjustified — but, nodded through on the premise of urgency, the Act suffered from a lack of parliamentary scrutiny. It is vital that this motion to review the Act is not a rubber-stamping exercise but a genuine review and repeal of the Act’s unnecessary and dangerous powers. The most dangerous and excessive of these powers in Schedule 21 of the Act.
Schedule 21 contains some of the most extreme detention powers in modern British legal history. It gives unprecedented, almost arbitrary powers to the Police, immigration officers and public health officials to detain “potentially infectious” members of the public, including children, potentially indefinitely and in unspecified locations. In a pandemic, that could mean anyone.
So far, Schedule 21 detention powers have been used for 121 prosecutions — every single one of which was found unlawful by the CPS on review. This 100% unlawful prosecution rate, which has continued over six months, is unprecedented and unacceptable. There have been several cases of innocent and healthy individuals, not only being arrested and fined but even held in police cells unlawfully under these draconian powers.
I believe that renewing Schedule 21 in the Coronavirus Act would be dangerous and indefensible. Significant powers in the Health and Social Care Act 2008 already allow for the forced detention and testing of potentially infectious people with the authorisation of a magistrate, which is a vital safeguard. Furthermore, the Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) Regulations 2020 require individuals returning from countries on the quarantine list to self-isolate and give Police the power to forcibly return an individual to an isolation place.
Will you support an amendment to the Coronavirus Act renewal motion to repeal Schedule 21?
I respectfully request that you do not send me back a ‘Stock head office’ written reply. I want to hear Caroline Ansell’s true feelings on this very serious and life changing matter and not the ‘Party-Line’.

"If you have had any coronavirus including covid and recovered the ‘test’ will show you up as ‘positive’".
That is utter rubbish. The test is specific to COVID, though it is sensitive and will pick up COVID infections that occurred several weeks before. Pretty much everyone has been infected by a coronavirus in the past. If your mate's point were correct, the positive rate would be about 100%.
On Fri 25 Sep at 3:04pm Dreamer wrote:
Indeed it is, Cliff Hanger. Most of that is utter rubbish, proven wrong many times, and supported by no data at all.
My current favourite is the hog wash being spread about false positive rates. For one, people using that argument are trying to do Bayesian statistics without understanding that they are applying the wrong prior. To add to that, the false positive rate has been proven to be much lower than some folks claim - countries that test at sufficiently high rates see positivity rates that are much lower than the claimed false positive rate.
But people like Dave and TP will believe, or claim to believe it, for whatever reason. They will not accept evidence to the contrary, intentionally conflate terms (e.g. comorbidity and preexisting condition), and play insulted when called out on it.
I recommend installing a simple Raspberry Pi based proxy server (such as Pi Hole) and using it to filter their posts here. They have the right to express their opinion, no matter how scientifically wrong it is, and we have a right to not need to put up with it. And the forum becomes more useful once the trolls are invisible. ;-)

On Fri 25 Sep at 9:00pm Dreamer wrote:
Let me be a more more precise, so it doesn't seem I am dismissing this out of hand.
Dave claims that "the Covid test" tests for a protein.
While it is true that there are tests that test for a protein, those are the antibody tests (antibodies are large proteins). These tests are the ones that test if someone has had Covid. They indicate that 6.2% of the UK population have antibodies against Covid (data from today's ONS surveillance bulletin).
But the tests Dave appears to mean are the swab tests being performed by the NHS and Serco. These are so-called PCR tests, thst test against a nucleic acid (about as different from a protein as a rock is from a tree). These tests amplify a specific stretch of RNA that is *only* found in SARS-CoV2. Not any other Corona viruses. This is known because it is explicitly tested for when such a test is designed. Even before that, the stretch of RNA that is tested for (the template) is selected by aligning the genetic sequences of known Corona viruses, determine the region that is most variable between different viruses and picking a highly characteristic subsequence in that stretch. This so-called primer design is not black magic, but something that many molecular biologists do day in day out. Complete standard. Highly error proof.
The silliness regarding masks is hardly worth discussing. There is a wealth of evidence on this. Claiming that basic masks do not work in containing the virus by limiting its spread at the source, is about as scientific as claiming the Earth is indeed flat: it's a nice isea, but has been disproven so many times by so many different means, that discussing it is a bit "out there".

Skimming through, It does come across as the kind of nonsense you'd see that douchebag "friend" everyone has in their Facebook network post up. They might put in bold letters "WAKE UP" as if they have taken the red pill and the rest are mind slaves to everything.
The MP will never read this attention seeking crap, basically. Just as most others won't. It appeals to a certain arrogant type of person who assumes they're just more intellectually curious than others....the reality is they are simply more susceptible to being duped and defrauded. Had the government ignored covid entirely and done absolutely nothing during this pandemic, these same folks would be wearing masks right now and telling the rest of us we are doomed as we aren't taking the virus seriously. It's just the way some people set their lives out. Quite perverse really.

@dave So what motivated you to post that rubbish? Was it a desire to convince people of the need to follow all the pandemic mitigation measures diligently, and to praise the professional integrity of those who work for the NHS? Or was it simply out of frustration that the relaxation of more severe lockdown measures, and Johnson's constant u-turns, have resulted in a huge increase in cases in cities and large towns? Thankfully not in Lewes area so far.

Foolish Tom thought that 1%of the positives was neither here nor there! But then I realised~ it was 1% of ALL the tests that ,statistically were suspect, big mistake. It follows that if 1,000 were tested and 11came up positive, only 1 was statistically sound. That, I'm sure you'll admit puts a totally different completion on the CASE figures.
