  3. Emmanuel Goldstein says:

    On GBN last night (Neil Oliver I think) they had someone on who was talking about how effective the Covid treatment was and Oliver mentioned the cases in South Africa where a Nobel prize winning Doctor has treated many thousands of those with Covid using Ivermectin and the hydrochlorinesomethingorother and other respiratory treatments where he has cured the lot with none needing hospitalisation.

    He has written about it but it’s being ignored.

    Oliver then said is it because Ivermectin costs 2 dollars per treatment and the one the big pharma are pushing (Remdezevir or something like that) cost thousands of dollars for one treatment.
    The person being interviewed said Ivermectin and HCQ(?) don’t work.

    Why can we not have the two cases looked at to see what the truth is.
    It’s a ‘Follow the money’ perfect example.

    Oliver had his monologue at about 6 yesterday and I’d recommend it. Powerful, logical and, I believe, the truth.
    Maybe somebody who knows what to do could put a link up on here to show it.


    • Rob in Cheshire says:

      I didn’t see this, but Ivermectin and HCQ, plus zinc, do work as early treatment for covid. Dr Fauci sponsored studies which purported to show they did not work. To do this, they were given in lethal doses to people who were on the verge of dying, not as early treatment.

      I expect Neil Oliver had to have this stooge on as a guest to provide “balance”, and to avoid going the way of Mark Steyn.

        Neil Oliver hitting the bullseye versus thousands of lying by omission or lying on purpose zombie mainstream juvenile activist news people not the least of which are many employed by our National Treasure, the BBC who will now try to roll him over to protect their worthless skins and careers.

        Nevertheless, keep going Neil…. The truth will out as the saying goes,


        • Fedup2 says:

          Oliver blew his credibility by failing to standup for a colleague called Mark Steyn … screw him and hot righteousness…he is just wind


          • popeye says:

            And if he had, who would be left to tell the truth?


            • Fedup2 says:

              What does it matter – what impact does Oliver have ? If there was any it went out the door with Mark Steyn – together with the whole devalued channel .


    • popeye says:

      “Dr. Hill (Liverpool University) and the research team produced their meta-analysis of ivermectin in January, 2021. The paper considered 18 studies on the 35-year-old drug—which has been safely used since 1987 to eradicate parasitic pandemics in low and middle-income countries. The study concluded that the use of ivermectin resulted in reduced inflammation and a more rapid elimination of the Sars-Cov-2 virus from the body. Six of the eighteen trials showed that the risk of death from COVID-19 was 75% lower in patients who had moderate to severe disease.”

      “But just one month later, Dr. Hill’s original, positive study conclusions on ivermectin quite literally fell off the rails”

      “Dr. Tess Lawrie, a physician, independent WHO researcher, and Director of the Evidence-based Medicine Consultancy in Bath, England, had heard that Dr. Hill was about to change his conclusions about ivermectin’s efficacy. So she called him on Zoom to find out why—and recorded the entire conversation.

      During that Zoom call, Dr. Hill confessed to Dr. Lawrie that he was changing his study conclusions from positive to negative — because he was under pressure from his funding sponsors to do so. ”

      “One week prior to Dr. Andrew Hill’s pre-print posting of his revised paper, the University of Liverpool, where Hill works, received a $40 million grant from Unitaid to study infectious diseases—Dr. Hill’s specialty.”

      Unitaid receives funding from Bill Gates

      So, Ivermectin works one week, then six weeks later doesn’t. In between his university gets $40 million grant. Hmmm



    • Khaa2091 says:

      I look after patients with COVID. The treatment everyone gets as soon as they need oxygen is dexamethasone, costing about £2.50 a day (depends which manufacturer).
      HCQ (hydroxychloroquine) and ivermectin have not been shown to confer any benefit. If you are interested I can post the trials but this has been assessed repeatedly. Trust me, the NHS would be very keen to demonstrate survival benefit from widely used already licensed cheap medicines.


  4. Nibor says:

    If the virus was so serious why did the government allow hundreds of thousands of migrants into the country?

    I mean , they were worried about the NHS being overrun with pandemic cases , then increased the population at the same time .
    They said the NHS had scarce resources, then had to us scarce resources to medically look at the bogus asylum seekers.
    Everyone would have understood that when a country is in crisis so called refugees would not be allowed into the country at all , everyone would understand that including the bogus asylum seekers and criminals people traffickers .

    Not a peep of a question about this from the BBC .

    Article from the Conservative Woman:

    Anti-war marches roar back to life but, guess what, go unreported by the MSM

    WHEN, if you are as old as me, do you remember CND marches or Greenham Common demonstrations going unreported? Or the protests against the war in Agfhanistan, for that matter? I don’t remember the BBC or the Guardian brushing them under the carpet, the left-wing organs simply loved them. But when it comes to anti-Ukraine war marches, the silence is deafening. Why? Because they’ve all become Neo-cons overnight? Or because there’s a Woke ‘Democrat’ in the White House pushing the war?

    Whichever, the largest anti-war rally in 20 years in Washington that took place in Washington on Feb 19th went unreported by the mainstream with the honourable exception of the Helsinki Times. Infowars however filled the gap, reporting that the speakers included four former US presidential candidates and a broad and diverse collection of anti-war activists from beyond the left and right do.

    Meanwhile few will have been aware that all over Europe there have also massive protests calling for peace, in London as well as in Berlin and Paris. Fortunately we have social media reporting them.


    • popeye says:

      Mind you, they never reported the anti-war protests when trump was president either.

      Oh wait, there weren’t any wars!

    “Matt Hancock suggested to an aide that they “frighten the pants off everyone”,”

    Time now to “frighten the pants off ” The Tory government and to Vote for The Reform Party .
    There is no other credible alternative , is there ?

      Along with the existing Government policy for levelling up the North with the South we will provide free Spirit Levels to all

      We will reduce inflation by giving everyone free pins.

      To make trains safer, we will fit them all with cushions on the front.

      Any possible schemes thought up by Government, Council , NHS etc, such as closure of Hosptitals, workplace parking levy etc will be preceded with a Public Consultation which we will then ignore.

      We will combat corruption in public life by taking part in it openly, we will introduce the Board of Bribery who will set standardised rates?. #sleaze for the many not just the few

      We propose to prevent identity theft instantly by calling everyone Chris.

      All political and electoral leaflets will be printed on soft paper so that it may be recycled in the appropriate manner.

      In an effort to reduce the problems faced by the NHS , it is proposed to reduce pregnancy from nine to seven months ?

      To protect pets and people of a nervous disposition we would introduce silent fireworks.

      With Government helped finance, AstraZeneca should buy out Pfizer, then, as we would have the rights to Viagra, the economy may stay up longer.

      Redundant Red Phones boxes will be converted to bijou accommodation to ease the housing shortage.

      To make things fairer we will introduce a Court of Human Lefts.



  9. tomo says:

    Related to the Handoncock revelation business.

    The Sue Grey – Starmer gig has got the Tories agitated – mostly because Sue Grey knows (from her days as top Civil Service “fixer”) where the bodies are buried and seems likely to use that as leverage on the government on a partisan basis.

    I had cause to try and contact her some 5-6 years ago about official misdeeds and officials I dealt with seemed obviously very cautious about her powers and her ability to “execute” top managers. Journalists also spoke about her in dark language.


    • Fedup2 says:

      I kind of think there’s a battle going on to which ordinary taxpayers – non swamp members – will not be allowed to know about .
      I will stick to my assessment that red labour need do very little to win the next election – and the best they can do is to keep their thick loons – ginger growler – Diane abbot and the many more – in a box wearing a gag .

      Starmer can promise the world and then blame blue labour mismagement when he fails to deliver .

      The question will be just how big the red labour majority is – 100 or more ?

      As for Sue Grey – how anyone in charge of ethics can justified what she is doing – beyond me …


      • tomo says:



        I’m tempted to think there’s a revolt of sorts inside the public sector that encompasses near all at the top (libmob + groupthink stuff keeps independent thinkers heads down / demoralised) but especially those who were recruited / put on the promotion path under the last Labour administration well over a decade ago…

        As I understand it Grey’s tasking was a case of some nominative determinism.

    I read an article suggesting that the recent supermarket shortages had nothing to do with availability and more to do with supermarket closed shop purchasing by the above.

    This morning I drove to a very nice greengrocer shop out in the Hampshire countryside. They had massive heaps of every kind of veg including a choice of different varieties of tomatoes and lots of salad products in fine condition. By the checkout they also has a huge display of fresh eggs at very realistic prices.

    As it happened on my way home I then had to go into a large Sainsbury’s for some wine and stuff.

    Blimey! No tomatoes, very little salad products and totally empty egg shelves.

    So what the hell are supermarkets playing at?

    I am aware that the chairman of at least one large supermarket is a massive Labour party donor – and the shortages conveniently coincide with the Irish negotiations – couldn’t possibly be a link?

    Nahhhh! Must be getting a bit paranoid……

      22 Lost in Manchester …. why is this a terrible statement?

      Lost … so they will be found?

      Lost …. weasel words rather than killed or murdered so as not to upset anyone or cause HATE.

      Lost ….. a child given a Western education and opportunity decided Islam was better, but we cannot look into this problem because all cultures are EQUAL.

      Lost …… children killed for an ideology, but that ideology cannot be criticised.

      Lost …….. 1400+ kids were “transformed” over 16 years in 1 town, why not use the word groomed rather than raped.

      Lost ……… the UK has lost the ability to state the actual events, so it is the UK that HAS LOST.

    Thanks to ‘theisland’ for putting the Neil Oliver clip on here.

    How can anybody who listens to it find anything at all that is not 100% right.
    The lefties must be seriously brainwashed if they think he’s said anything at all which is incorrect.

    Maybe we will get an inquiry into this if enough people want one (but I wouldn’t hold my breath)
    Then, in ten years time when the enquiry is published we will get the usual ‘lessons will be learned’ but nobody at all will in any way be found to be at fault. In short, it would be full of waffle, obfuscations, newspeak and irrelevance (as they all are)

      He kicked against the bicycle, which caused the girl to fall off. She screamed. He held her mouth shut. Then he strangled her with her shawl until she was unconscious.
      “When I saw how pretty she was, I wanted to have sex with her.” (Hussein K.)
      Apparently he thought that he had already strangled her to death. The judge questioned him concerning “sex with a dead girl,” and the offender said:
      “It didn’t bother me to have sex with a dead girl.” (Hussein K.)

      – What organisation promotes/pays large wages to people who make up a sexual attack on someones granddaughter live on Radio – and then offers them more work and a news feed afterwards?
      – What organisation fails to report on an ongoing case of a brutal attack which was done by an migrant.

      “Cracks down on asylum claims” is a false statement – he is suggesting he can do something.

  22. digg says:

    The more the facts are extracted from the medical profession regarding the death toll in care homes, particularly by patients released (or thrown out) of hospitals due to covid, the more chilling it becomes.

    From what I now read, the definitive treatment for any eldery person showing covid symptoms was to administer the same drugs used in end of life situations to bring about a solution where it would render these people comatose to speed the death process and therefore limit suffering.

    In other words instead of treating them for breathing difficulties they may have been simply euthanised, no doubt to limit the possibility of further spread of the virus.

    I have two elderly relations who may have been “disposed of” in this way!

    If this in fact turns out to be true, we need a nationwide inquiry into every death with those responsible for in effect handing out death sentences in place of care and treatment facing the full force of the law for murder.

    Their medical records will show what the symptoms diagnosed were and exactly what drugs were administered in what doses and therefore any competent medical expert should be able to determine whether the treatment was appropriate and necessary given the diagnosis.


    • Fedup2 says:

      Digg – the use of DNR forms attached to medical records is – I believe – widespread – especially if there is no active ‘next of kin ‘ .
      I have personal experience of this – but I was an active next of kin . I couldn’t understand why the medical mafia treated my relative with less regard than I expected . Until I looked at the notes and found that a DNR notice had been attached ‘by mistake ‘ .

      When I kicked off about this the medical mafia started to treat my relative like a human being ….

      Back then some on here adopted the ‘why worry – they were gonna die anyway – they’re old ‘ approach – I bet satan approved .

      I wish I had seized the red edged DNR form and framed the effing thing ….

      The value the State places on the elderly really made me think about the NHS – the medical mafia -and the ease with which the defenceless can be killed off ….

    Dear Darren Henry,

    Parliament’s £13 billion restoration.

    HS2 £150 billion, original budget £36 billion.

    Track and Trace £37 billion – no tracking or tracing where this money went.

    £1.1bn of COVID small business loans identified as fraud

    £4 billion of unusable PPE bought in first year of pandemic will be burnt “to generate power”

    13 + 150 + 37 + 1.1+ 4 = £205 billion

    Nuclear reactor = £6 billion
