    Oh man,, Utter bullshit.. Let m explain a few things to these 2 stooges..
    First, this bullshit was never about protecting the Elderly or Vulnerable, they trapped them, caused their early deaths,, 20,000 +in care homes… Nearly half the TOTAL deaths,,,, They never ever had any intention of saving or protecting these people.. Second,, The Nightingale hospital was built in 9 days flat by the Army, only 90 beds were used.. 2 months after a grand opening, it was mothballed,,, Utter bullshit.. Third,, Face mask wearing came into effect on the 24th/25th July, it was a Monday,,, the WHO in mid April said "" there was no evidence to say masks prevented the spread""NONE… Forth,, This bullshit" curfew "" 10pm,,This virus must be laughing its DNA off,, they think that putting a time restriction in place this virus will go to bed as well….. Omg… Utter bullshit.. We, as people have got these bloody clowns making decisions that are utter bullshit..
    Don't not believe a single word people that comes out of their mouths,, EVER… Scaremonger, scandalous, bullshit.

    Government lies. All part of Chapter 21 of the UN, world Government and what a good way to brainwash people. There should be no one left in the world according to there figures who have not had contact of indeed had Covid. Now be a good slave and do what your told. Look Pinky and Perky. The y are all unknowns, aerosols is it now in them. Talk about the rising cases which IS NOT happening in the UK. Spain and France is there problem, as there figures also say admissions are DOWN. COVID does NOT KILL anyone. It will lead to an increase in deaths well hope it parliament and the Lords pdq. How about shown us the percentage of people who have had Covid and died with it and only it. No sorry cant do that proves there lie.

    If they impose another lockdown are they going to pay my rent and bills?!! The economy is already on it's knees and unemployment will skyrocket not just cases!! Most people will not die from Covid but most people will suffer in other ways if they impose another lockdown.

    Since this started I don't know a single person who has had this virus. Two people on FB said that a work colleague had been infected and an elderly woman died from it. The numbers we see don't support this bullshit on the news then the president of Belarus says the IMF tried to pay him $940m to impose lockdowns and enforce wearing a mask.

    I'm starting to think this is all bullshit with an economic agenda of mass inflation to stave off economic collapse.
