Have written here twice before about this ‘pandemic’ - a respiratory illness due to an unusual virus. A virus that is less infective than the usual Strain A or B winter ‘flu’, but potentially rather more vicious in the frail elderly, those with damaged lungs from smoking mostly, and with other medical conditions that lower immunity. Obesity certainly adds to risk in several ways.

One central message was that there was no risk to families if they were driven up to this most beautiful moor in exceptional weather.

Instead, Government propa-ganda has so cowed a usually sceptical populace that everyone obeyed. So no child heard the arrival of the cuckoo here April 22, some 4,000 miles as the crow flies from the Congo Basin. Nor was the exultant song of the skylark heard above the golden gorse.
Instead, there has been no voice of a child above our wood beside the Bovey to Widecombe road until this last weekend. The public has been scared out of its remaining wits by so called scientific advisers.

A particular adviser, with a record of faulty prognostication going back to ‘foot and mouth’, has been disgraced. For the record, the modeling ‘Professor’ Ferguson of Imperial College had predicted in March that there would be about 500,000 deaths in this United Kingdom.

This was the trigger for the ‘lockdown’ ie virtual house arrest.

Dear James,

Thank you for forwarding the essay by Godfree Roberts Ed.D.  Education and Politics, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 1973 in the New York Herald Tribune.  This could be regarded as seminal.  I am forwarding this to about 40 friends on my main e-mail list who are all sceptical about the emphasis given by the 'weirdos and misfits', and philanderers in No 10, on the alleged lethality and virulence of Covid-19.  The latter is contradicted by an announcement the other day via the BBC, which has been at the forefront of the propagandere nero (PN), that 6% of the UK population and 20% of those in ?Greater London have had this one of many variants of the coronavirus family - first identified in the 60s. This family is said to be found in 15% of those with the common cold - coryza to give its pompous name.  Given the crowding on public transport, in theatres and cinemas, supermarkets etc in the Wen of Cobbett, one can assume its 'infectivity'/virulence is lower than 'seasonal' influenza of the various Strain A and B types which mutate continuously.  The latter is the reason why the much 'hyped' 'flu vaccination in the UK often fails to protect those submitting to it.  **

Note the chief officer, his gut, and his hands in his pockets.  The same mentalities that enjoyed shooting the native people in their own land - on a Sunday.  And do not forget, a close ally of the US Empire and the Old and and cunning country. .

Coming down the line folks.  Do read Milton Mayer again - on my home page but easier attached.  Down the line.  Fall in or - resist, in every way you can.

 Dear Mr Hughes,
I had your ‘auto’ message. It came immediately – 20-04 10. 20 am -Thanks for your message. I am away until Tuesday 21st April and I won’t be looking at emails. If you need immediate help with something please call the Newsdesk in London. Thanks, Dominic Hughes BBC ‘News’
I have not from you since. Might I advise you as to your responsibility given that you are speaking to at least 10 million of my fellow citizens. Most are ill informed by the ‘media’ though most will have some idea as to how a bankrupted Britain will so badly affect their future lives, especially their children’s.

Dr Darmady is the second ‘corona virus’ death you highlighted. Brother Peter sent this link She was obviously a very caring person.


Dear Chief Constable Sawyer and Commissioner Hernandez,

These two letters are now posted on my web site - easily linked by people 'googling'  <david halpin surgeon>  my web site comes up second.  I have had automatic responses from Middlemoor and I am confident a senior officer has read them.

I have just walked a mile on Dartmoor with Polly and Trixie, the re-homed and unspayed! JR.  4 cyclists, 5 cars, a light lorry.  No 'hairs' ie. people on top of Haytor.  No helicopters for the third day - not even the air ambulance.  (Grounded?  Roster of 13 for  each flight.)  Yesterday - going to my 28 acres of woodland in Combe to do essential work - 5 ambulances lined up at NA Ambulance station.  No sirens.  One police car seen.

Many have clapped OUR NHS.  But the public can be fickle.  A third are badly over weight and ignore, largely, the burden put on the NHS, with diabetes first.  A minority torment the A&E departments at the w/e and at religious festivals.  A majority has not listened to those few of us informing them that the NHS is at the end of this process -

destabilise>demoralise>dismantle      They could note the contracts being given to the likes of Dyson in this 'crisis'.

It is possible that the post WW2 consensus to construct truly public services might come alive.  And that, with every citizen believing she and he is being considered properly, the advanced 'social disintegration' will be reversed.  We might see TV stations shutting down for some hours as happened years ago, and 'social media' damned as anti-social. ie. Speaking with fellow citizens becomes the norm again.
