When I first heard about the death of George Floyd I thought, "Bloody hell, I used to love his drivetime show on Absolute Radio".

And then I realised that was Jeff Lloyd.

When I saw the footage of Floyd's death I was shocked, but not surprised because let's face it, the USA is not the land of the free they'd have us believe.

Police brutality is their thing and whilst it may seem that it's always geared towards black people, this is simply not the case.

That's not to say there isn't a level of discrimination, it's clear there is.  This has been portrayed in films over the years from th 90's Gangsta rap type films like "Boyz N The Hood" and "Menace II Society" to the newer movies like "Straight Outta Compton" which is based on the true story of the rise of rap group NWA.  There's one particular scene where the group are stopped by cops outside the recording studio and summarily humilated.  That scene has been described in a book about the group, it wasn't a made up scene.

That kind of thing goes on all the time, it's wrong and should be stopped.

The American justice system is shit, it's as corrupt as any out there for a supposed civilised country.  Remember in the 90s when Rodney King was beat by white cops?  It was recorded in full and the cops ALL got away with it.  Riots ensued.

America treats its people with such disrespect, I find it hard for any American to be truly patriotic.  The police, healthcare, welfare even people's annual leave from jobs is probably less than a Chinese sweatshop.

America needs to sort its self out sharpish, because it's rapidly becoming on a par with some real shithole countries.

And finally..

Follow us on Twitter for updates and other stuff.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson made a speech on Sunday, laying out the first phase of easing the lockdown, and of course everyone was waiting to attack every word he said.

In fact, to be quite honest, it was embarrassing to see some people's reactions.  Some people were pretending to not understand what he meant, whilst others are genuinely thick.

Personally, I thought it was straight forward, everything remains the same apart from the stuff that doesn't.

That didn't stop half the celebrities making stupid tweets, pretending to be confused, presumbly for likes.

Looking stupid is NEVER a good look.

Others genuinely are stupid.  For example, one Facebook friend said, "I don't get it, I can't go see my family but I can play sport with my family.  That means I can only see my family if I play sport with them?"

After pointing out that she can play sport with members of her own household, she then went on to ask, "But what about social distancing?  I have to do it in the park, but how can I do it at home?"

After carefully weighing up if she really was dumb, I set her right, "You can go to the park with members of your household, you social distance from people who aren't"

I realised she wasn't playing the fool, she's genuinely a bit dim.

Yet there's plenty asking silly questions all over.  Can I do this, can I do that?

Use your common sense!

I believe Boris deliberately left the speech vague to give people the opportunity to use common sense, he shouldn't be there to tell you exactly what to do.

It's almost like some were expecting a personal call from the PM to tell them what time to get up and how to wipe their arse.

Come on!  Isn't it clear that yes whilst it says you can meet one of your family from a different household as long you're socially distant then it really doesn't matter if it's 2.  The point is about retaining that 2 metre distance and to avoid the temptation to hug.

If you need to be told when to do certain things I suggest you stay in, you're a danger to others!

 

Good Morning Britain

Piers Morgan is not acting in your best interests

 

Lefty Loonies

I see the Lefty Loonies have been let out again, still continuing with their tired "The Government / Boris has blood on his hands", even though they/he hasn't actually murdered anyone.  Now they want the Government to be held to account (which is a fair request) however, what I don't think is right are the ones who have been saying, "If we can't find a law to do them under we should make one" which is a bit... erm... scary.

 

And finally...

Man almost dies after forgetting to breathe

 

Until next time, don't forget to breathe.

Captain Tom Moore set out to raise £1,000 for the NHS by doing laps of his garden.  Captain Tom was 99 at the time.

His story went viral and he raised £30m, an absolutely wonderful achievement I am sure you will agree!  But, I do wonder where that money will go.

Will it go towards hiring more nurses, buying more equipment and paying nurses better?

Or will it end up going towards hiring more "Diversity" managers?  Or funding more "Trans" departments where people choose what gender they are this year?

I hope it all goes towards a good use, I'm just not convinced it will.

 

Speaking of the NHS...

The NHS is not all that

 

The media

One thing I've noticed throughout this pandemic is the utter irresponsibility of the media.

Here's why they're scum.

 

Lockdown

The next review for Lockdown is Thursday and I really hope they're looking at relaxing it.  I truly think things have gone on long enough.

Here's why:

Being locked away isn't good for us, people need to go out.  Our immune systems are actually weaker for being locked away because they're not exposed to the usual every day germs that we're used to.  I guarantee that when we start to go back to work etc we'll all come down with colds.  And then a load of bedwetters will say it's a spike in Corona, even though those aren't the symptoms.  Being too sterile is not a good thing.  Have we not learned anything from War of the Worlds?

In fact, a high percentage of Corona deaths have seen a deficiency in Vitamin D - the Sunshine vitamin.  Just 20 minutes a day outside will give you your Vit D for the day.  That helps to fight off nasty bugs including Corona.

 

People are not understanding the Lockdown properly, they think they're not even allowed out the house at all.  I've seen many reports of people who are too scared to even go in their back gardens, they think Lockdown is stay in and that's it.  My own mother is in her late 70s, she's been locked away for 9 weeks I'd say.  Whilst she has a decent sized garden I don't think she's using it.  All that good weather we've had, she could have been sat out in the sun enjoying some peace and quiet.  Instead she's inside shitting herself.

When I asked her why not go for a walk she actually said, "I'm not allowed out".

That's simply not true, she's allowed to go for a walk.  A walk would do her good. Granted, the guidelines say not to go shopping, but there's nothing stopping her having a walk about.

 

People are becoming conditioned to be fearful.  I don't mean in a malicious or conspiracy theory way, I mean that the media has pushed the agenda of "You get COVID, you die" so much.  Whilst that specific line hasn't been trotted out, the inference is there.  Not everyone who gets it is seriously ill.  We've been told to "Stay home, Save the NHS, Save Lives".

But the NHS has not been even close to being overrun.  The Government has exaggerated the response, again not malicious or conspiratorially but things aren't as bad as we're led to believe.

 

The media has driven alot of this, as you'll no doubt have read in the previous article.  They clamoured for lockdown.  There's little evidence to suggest that Lockdown has worked, apart from tanking the economy, could it have burned itself out in 7 weeks anyway as some scientists are now suggesting!  Look how Sweden managed it.

 

People are becoming anti-social.  I don't just mean the whole "2 metres apart" thing which is soon to be 1 metre, I believe!  But people are actually frightened to speak to other people in case they get it.

Mate, it doesn't work like that.

I was in the supermarket the other day and this guy had gone to the beer aisle.  He had an empty trolley and he'd had quite the mission following the arrows around the store.  I walked past him, observing the 2 metres of course and said, "I see you've waited for the most important aisle then?" whilst pointing at his empty trolley.

He looked at me like I'd walked into his house on Christmas morning and pissed on his presents.

It probably didn't help I was dressed like this, mind:

grim reaper

But seriously, I've noticed when out with the dog, some folk are less likely to even part with a "Hello!" or "Morning" in case they catch a virus I don't have by simply looking at me .

 

We're turning into a nation of grasses.  People are curtain twitching, seething away.

"That's twice today he's been out!  I'm ringing the police"

You might think you're doing a good thing, trying to get everyone to stay locked in, bored senseless earning 80% of their salaries if they're earning anything at all.  But you're not.

All you are doing is making sure we end up with a Police state for good.  Grassing on your neighbours is all very Iraqi Ba'ath party of you.  Uncle Saddam would be so proud.

 

So, yes, I hope they relax things.  I don't mind admitting that when this all kicked off I was scared, but the last couple of weeks I've changed my opinion.  People, don't live in fear, it's not good for you!

 

 

And finally...

Coronavirus is cultural appropriation

 

Until next time... I won't say Stay Safe 'cos that sounds shit.  Just be well, John Spartan!

 

So Boris is back at work today, he still looks ill and clearly feeling the after effects of Coronavirus plus the added stress of managing the country through
these hard times.

boris looking unwell

But of course, there are plenty people having a pop at him.

One MoT reader put something on Facebook last week about him missing several COBRA meetings, to which someone replied that he'd been off with the virus.

Now, another person responded to that with the following:

boris never had virus

 

So, naturally I requested evidence that he didn't have the virus. Of course there was no response.  Not sure what he's supposed to have stolen either?

The comment below that sums it up perfectly for me, and no that's not my comment.

But it is true, people are using social media as a platform for lies, spreading hate, and just contradicting what other people say.  None of it is ever evidenced.

How anyone can claim he didn't have CV, it's clear he has been really poorly. One person claimed he'd been away on holiday! Of course he has, you nutter.

 

Every step you take, we'll be watching you

I see the Police are still up their tricks with their new found powers. This time stopping a man and fining him because he went out to buy wine.

When the man quoted the Bill of Rights at the officer, the officer claimed he had only recently qualified and didn't "know everything".

So, if he doesn't know the law he's supposed to be enforcing, how can he arrest, fine and de-arrest the man? It is ludicrous, but they're still letting people gather on Westminster Bridge to
clap for them on a Thursday night.

Speaking of clapping, I see that nurses are so overworked that they have time to make dancing videos on TikTok.

Now, granted, this isn't all nurses and these are departments that have been closed due to no patients but if they think that using a piece of equipment consting thousands of pounds is a suitable prop to use in a dancing video they have seriously misjudged the situation.

The Bucks Radiology department got so much grief they deleted the tweet. But it's not just them, there's dozens of videos which are apparently supposed to lift our mood. No, it doesn't!

We all appreciate those who are frontline, but now you've got NHS admin staff who never leave a desk and certainly never see a patient taking the adulation on a Thursday night.

Make it stop!

 

Coronavirus, a hot take

How do you think things have been handled so far? I'm not overly impressed if I'm honest. But that's not necessarily a dig at Boris, I just think we as Brits are shit at handling stuff like this.

We dither so much, I honestly don't think it would have been any different under Corbyn or anyone else. We're a fairly useless country and I don't buy into all that stiff upper lip and British spirit nonsense. Being told that in the war people went out of their way to help others, I reckon that's just bollocks. I can imagine the queues for the shops were similar to what we experienced weeks ago, it is human nature to be selfish. Let's not rewrite history and pretend that 70+ years ago things were any different. We all look back at previous times and think things were better.

For me, I thought the 80s were great. Music, computers, TV. But I was growing up then, look back at the politics, the strikes, the interest rates, the unemployment - it wasn't all Top Deck and Skittles.

I've changed my opinion of how things are going of late. The Government just don't have a plan, there's no exit strategy. They've had a different person doing the 5'o clock Press Conference in Boris' absence, none of which instills any confidence at all.

Hancock is a cock, Gove is a cock, Priti Patel is just a good looking Dianne Abbott.

When they wheel out Chris Whitty to do it there's something wrong. I'm not certain now that he actually has a handle on what's happening. He's lost my trust.

Add that to, Professor Neil Ferguson, the biggest bullshitter in medical history. This is a man who claimed 500,000 would die in this country.

This is a man who claimed SARs would kill millions here when there were none. This is a man who had THOUSANDS of animals needlessly slaughtered during the Foot and Mouth epidemic.

He can't be trusted with animals let alone humans. He now claims lifting the lockdown will claim 100,000 lives.

He's not to be listened to, his modelling is way off kilter.

I'm not a scientist by any means, but when scientists can't agree on the way foward, models or treatment it suggests something is wrong. He has been consistently wrong and must not be listened to at all! Biggest fraud out there.

And then there's the media! They are LOVING the mass hysteria, the absolute bastards. They hate the fact that deaths are down, as are new cases.

The deaths reported yesterday include deaths from WEEKS ago, but that goes against the media narrative.

Every little thing is seized upon as negative, why on earth can't they be positive about anything at all?

If Boris claimed today that we'd developed a vaccine with a 100% strike rate they'd be asking him why it wasn't developed weeks ago.

They'd ask why the scientists who developed it didn't include a gay black trans woman, and was the vaccine racist.

 

Relax the Lockdown

We're all looking at lifting the lockdown restrictions, the country (like Prince Paul) needs a haircut.

So why not let places like hairdressers and barbers re-open? Make it appointments only, stagger the appointments so there's only ever 1 customer in the shops at a time. Make the hairdresser or barber wear a mask and wear gloves? Maybe the customer could wear gloves too?

Is there an issue with this? If we're careful we could re-open lots of places if we change how we live for a while.

It's clear the economy needs to be kickstarted, things cannot go on like they are. Why not allow people to visit family too if there's no danger of infection?

We need a plan.

We have to come out of this slowly, but we HAVE to come out of it!
