Do as I say, not as……

Dissent is powerful, and must survive coronavirus.

Sure, just don’t try to dissent in my comments section.

    Someone posted a link to a civil servant who’d written a good explanation of how COBRA works, Jason Lynch said he knew him and that he knew his stuff. Has anyone still got that link? I’m pretty sure there a fair bit of misinformation about COBRA floating around after the Sunday Time article.

    As for dissent surviving Coronavirus, try being a lock down sceptic on social media. As for criticising the NHS, that was impossible before the virus, its going to be impossible afterwards, despite all the pointing at how well Germany’s health care system has coped.

    Tell me about it. Before the lockdowns, I made a fairly mild comment that perhaps the disease was worse than the flu, but that the response to it was an overreaction. I was hectored that Italy didn’t overreact at first, and look where it got them.

    Sadly I think you’re correct, but I do see a growing narrative that the front line staff are heroes but the manager class and the system itself are the problem. Let’s hope that develops further.

  6. Nah, that’s the usual excuse for tyrants: it’s not the potentate at fault, it’s those around him. If he only knew what they do in his name, he wouldn’t allow it…

    Etc., since forever.

  7. It does bug me that no one highlights the role of the trusts. It’s Matt Hancock’s fault rather than the people in the Trust on £150k

    While I agree with this, what is evident is that Spud always ends up as a party of one.

    Bugging you now? For weeks I’ve been posting about this and …..crickets
    – “PPE shortage is beause each NHS Trust’s Procurement Director failed to respond in December, January and February and order more*. Manufacturers would then have been able to respond. Boris & Hancock not responsible. When will BBC, C4, ITV interrogate these very highly paid (~3x Hancock’s salary) Procurement Directors?”

    ‘Trendy social justice topics’ have all but ‘evaporated’ amid COVID-19
    However, British social justice movement called ‘You Clap for Me Now’ which she described as a “smug passive aggressive dirge that perpetuates the tired old myth that Brits who have concerns about immigration are bigots”.
    “You Clap for Me Now only serves to splay the inherently divisive politics of identity onto a crisis that has nothing to do with it”.

    Well done Sky News Aus for saying what UK media refuse to…

    Piers, “party politics” is Pelosi & Schiff. Trump is being positive, optimistic, uplifting like as you mention WWII and Churchill. Piers, How about some attacks on FDA, WHO, EU & China

    Gov never learn, Spain & Germany tried that and news sites had less traffic

    I don’t want Gov giving money to media, Canada’s Trudeau has “bought” media and all negative coverage gone

    In an effort to vary my diet I listened to several hours of streamed Canadian MSM while working a few days ago. It’s not just the non negative coverage… Trudeau seriously sounds like he’d be out of his depth on a moist lawn. The fawning on CBC and Global News was just putrid and frankly I felt coverage of events was so shallow and evasive as to be quite unsettling… dystopian isn’t a word I chuck around lightly.

    I acquired a whole new respect for Ezra Levant and the crew at Rebel Media.
