Discussion:
Latest ONS figures show the “pandemic” fatalities have slowed to a trickle, and lockdown has nothing to do with it.

Apparently stsuff that goes up on you tube gets deleted quickly. Most
of us don't kn ow much about looking at original data and
understanding how it applies. We depend on the media to interpret it.
What expertise do they employ and what reasons do they have for how
they present it? There is a lot of similar data to that in the
article. Most I have seen is in that source.

But more or less every single one of my friends and contacts are
vehement in support of the interpretation that there is a very bad
virus killing many and we must listen to the government and obey the
various directions and they are angry at those who don't obey and
don't agree with the media and government interpretation of the data.

It would be nice if the scientists actually agreed with one another but
there is money to be made from seeing things differently.

Well you can add me to the list of contacts that think the latest data
is not much to be worried about and that the Rule of 6 is ridiculous.

Both our children have 3 of their own so that means we can never visit
together. But I could go round to BrratSki's this evening when they're
all at home, stay for an hour and then waife go in as I leave. What
difference can this possibly make, esp. since we have been meeting them
regularly, going on holiday together etc, since the initial lockdown was
eased ? At least that made sense in that only 2 households could meet.
Now we can have multiple houses meeting - up to 6 if there's only 1
each, weddings can go ahead, pubs and restaurants stay open, crowds can
start going to sporting events again (albeit limited) and people are
being encouraged to go to work and commute. It just does not make sense
and I can see it being widely flouted, in private if not in public.

As for the data - apart from there being many more tests of the
asymptomatic [1], the test is far too sensitive. I read yesterday that
it takes 40 iterations of the PCR process to detect the virus and a
respected virologist says that anything over 35 iterations is crazy and
she would set the level at 30. This would reduce the number of cases by
2 or 3 magnitudes. In the UK that would mean we'd go from 3,000/day to
30, or even 3.
Look at the data in France - it started to climb rapidly with more than
2,000 cases/day since about a month ago. Yest there is no detectable
increase in deaths at all.

[1] What if the ratio of asymptomatic younger people to seriously ill
olduns has not changed since the start of the pandemic ? We'd never
know because the testing was not done at the time.

I was talking to a friend yesterday who I haven't seen for a while, and
she told me she tested positive for corvid-19 last Christmas. That means
that not only was it known about then, but the means to test for it were
available.

While I share that article's writer's unease about secret intentions to
limit civil liberties (for want of a better term): police powers, these
"martials" that haven't been mentioned before; I find the article at
best untrustworthy:

It contains the sentence 'The “danger” – such as it ever was –
is over.' The "such as it ever was", presented not far below a graph
showing a peak of 22,000 deaths a week at a time of year when the past
five years was under 12,000 and averaged about 10,000, suggests the
writer has as much an agenda as s/he (I can't see a name) is suggesting
the government is.

We do need people to rigorously challenge the creeping loss of freedoms.
But I don't want this person leading that charge.

For heaven's sake, krw!

I'm perfectly happy for you to question the data we're being supplied
with and the motivations of the scientists involved even though I
disagree with what you say. However, likening the relatively
light-touch enforcement of social distancing rules to the behaviour of
the Nazis is something quite different. You might consider the effect
of that sort of remark on those of us whose families suffered and died
as a result of the real Nazi Party taking centre stage.

I'm sorry if I sound precious. I'm usually pretty relaxed about this
sort of thing but I do find it unacceptable to cheapen some of the
vilest crimes of the last century with facile comparisons.

Definitely. And to non-police. I'm perhaps over-anticipating, and will
reserve judgement until I read more about how they're to be recruited,
trained, and empowered, but at the moment I'm more than a bit concerned
about the brownmarshals.

I apologise for mis-spelling marshalls. I am concerned that the changes
made without consultation over our civil liberties in recent months are
disproportionate and they seem very similar in many respects to events
in Germany in the 1930s as I have heard them reported. I accept I am
not aware of the Houses of Parliament having been burnt to the ground or
the opening of camps to which people are sent. I am concerned that
other actions are very similar.

I am also concerned that because the GPs and such like are operating
behind closed doors that people are dying (deaths are above the 5 year
average and that is not down to C-19 deaths) and no-one knows why. That
no-one seems to be able to offer an explanation is also worrying.

Vicky,
You seem to be finding some increasingly strange websites.

I tried to look at that article's parent website (bizlim.com), but I
can't read Russian so I didn't get far - but it looks like some _very_
strange stuff.

Covid martials in town centres were an important part of BJ's
announcement yesterday as the Nzi party took centre stage.
For heaven's sake, krw!
I'm perfectly happy for you to question the data we're being supplied
with and the motivations of the scientists involved even though I
disagree with what you say.  However, likening the relatively
light-touch enforcement of social distancing rules to the behaviour of
the Nazis is something quite different.  You might consider the effect
of that sort of remark on those of us whose families suffered and died
as a result of the real Nazi Party taking centre stage.
I'm sorry if I sound precious.  I'm usually pretty relaxed about this
sort of thing but I do find it unacceptable to cheapen some of the
vilest crimes of the last century with facile comparisons.
I apologise for mis-spelling marshalls.  I am concerned that the changes
made without consultation over our civil liberties in recent months are
disproportionate and they seem very similar in many respects to events
in Germany in the 1930s as I have heard them reported.  I accept I am
not aware of the Houses of Parliament having been burnt to the ground or
the opening of camps to which people are sent.  I am concerned that
other actions are very similar.
I am also concerned that because the GPs and such like are operating
behind closed doors that people are dying (deaths are above the 5 year
average and that is not down to C-19 deaths) and no-one knows why.  That
no-one seems to be able to offer an explanation is also worrying.
I share your concerns, if not the Godwin invocation.

Two articles I've read today emphasise it:

<https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/fa762398-f39d-11ea-9de6-a6e4d4016fb7?shareToken=cf207c62687d41efdbc0ac4f7073ab28>

<https://lockdownsceptics.org/addressing-the-cv19-second-wave/>

I will be treating this ridiculous new rule with the contempt it
deserves. If anyone wants to send round Marshall Dylan or Marshall Why
A. Twerp, fill yer boots.

Both provide interesting reading but likely to be beyond the capability
of either Hancock (who ought to have his mental health checked) and Johnson.

Well quite.

It's well worth doing a little digging into the website that started
this whole thread.

"Off-guardian" seem to have a track record of floating a range of
conspiracy theories.

I am not clicking through to that article because I believe they
probably earn money if I do that. From what I gather elsewhere, it was
started by people who could not get their work published by the
Grauniad or others.

Given that there is a wide choice of on-line and off-line daily press
ranging rightwards from the Communists, weeklies covering economics,
politics, Brexit in-and-outers etc etc and periodic science journals
of every imaginable shade and hue - all of which will pay good money
for good articles - if nobody wants to buy their work I would say the
problem lies with their work.

For my idiot's guide to Covid-19 I go to More or Less. There is a huge
body of podcasts on the subject and the podcast directory helpfully
outlines the main matters for discussion by each episode.

I think the problem was not that the Graun wouldn't buy it, they
wouldn't even take it for free on the BelowTheLine comments. And given
some of the stuff they do allow, way antithetical to the paper's core
values but clearly and politely expressed, the authors must have been
either mad or rude or both.

+1 (for the stats, for the medical stuff I have tame (and feral) medics
on hand.
