More than HALF of people in England now have Covid antibodies thanks to huge vaccination drive and natural immunity – with PM facing more calls to lift restrictions NOW as lockdown-weary Brits head to beaches and parks to sizzle on hottest day of the year

One Tory MP told MailOnline the PM must bring forward the arbitrary dates in order to ‚maintain public confidence that we are getting our freedom as soon as possible‘. Steve Baker, of the Covid Recovery Group, called on No10 to ask SAGE to see whether the relaxation of restrictions could be safely brought forward.

#NoMasksInClass : Dear Education Secretary…

By 15 February, the NHS had vaccinated the top four most at risk groups – groups that have accounted for around 88% of COVID-19 deaths and about 55% of hospitalisations. The UK’s four Chief Medical Officers say that you get “substantial protection within 2-3 weeks of vaccination”, which takes us to 8 March. So upon what evidence is your department relying in order to recommend that masks in classrooms are today necessary – rather than “nonsensical” – now that the four most vulnerable groups have “substantial ­protection”?

We surrendered our freedom to lockdown – the state must never hold such control over our lives again

We know that the trajectory of the virus has been indistinguishable between North Dakota (with masks and distancing in restaurants) and South Dakota (without restrictions). We know that California, which locked down and closed schools, seems to have fared worse than Florida, which did not. We can see that the picture in Belgium with its hard lockdowns has now converged with that in Sweden which famously took a voluntary approach. Similarly, the ‘second wave’ trajectory in Japan is remarkably similar to that of the UK.

I know, I know, fascinating stuff…. but let’s leave all that for the public inquiry.

Covid-19: the problems with case counting

(03 September 2020)

At the moment it seems that a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) positive result is the only criterion required for a case to be recognised.

“In any other disease we would have a clearly defined specification that would usually involve signs, symptoms, and a test result,” says Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine at the University of Oxford and the editor of BMJ Evidence-Based Medicine. “We are moving into a biotech world where the norms of clinical reasoning are going out of the window. A PCR test does not equal covid-19; it should not, but in some definitions it does.”

Health Secretary Hancock says he can give no timetable for the lifting of lockdown restrictions even after vaccinations. As I have said on numerous occasions, this only ends when people realise it’s not meant to end.

The way ‘Covid deaths’ are being counted is a national scandal

(30.05.2020)

Normally, two doctors are needed to certify a death, one of whom has been treating the patient or who knows them and has seen them recently. That has changed. For Covid-19 only, the certification can be made by a single doctor, and there is no requirement for them to have examined, or even met, the patient. A video-link consultation in the four weeks prior to death is now felt to be sufficient for death to be attributed to Covid-19.

Boris Johnson hails Oxford vaccine as a ‚triumph for British science‘ and says he is ‚confident this is the year we will defeat coronavirus‘

The initial supplies of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine have been produced by a company called Halix in the Netherlands.

Once produced in bulk, the vaccine goes to a plant in Wrexham, run by an Indian company called Wockhardt, where it is decanted into vials in a process known as ‚fill and finish‘. The plant can bottle at least 150,000 doses a day.

And experts have urged patients not to mix and match the two.

Britain could be free of Covid restrictions by February after ministers pinpointed the 15million people to vaccinate to end the cycle of lockdowns, with Oxford’s jab due to be approved Monday and rolled out within a week

Government sources say that between 12 million and 15 million people have been identified as likely to require hospital treatment if they contract coronavirus, or be at risk of dying from it. Once this group has received the vaccine – which some officials hope could be achieved by the end of February – then the NHS would no longer be at risk of being overwhelmed if the virus spread through the greater population. That would remove the main argument for shutting the economy at a stroke.

A source said: ‚The path to liberation is finally becoming clear.‘

I did not vote for these appalling laws but accept that I am part of the political collective that has forced them on our constituents. Merely to suggest that we may be ‘over-cooking the goose’ is to invite the wrath of the ‘high-ups’ in Parliament.

„She [Ms May] has completely ignored her own cabinet which is unconstitutional and she’s gone and done it anyway. Her deal will never pass the House of Commons, it’s been voted down three times – the speaker may not even allow it to come back.

The Labour Party is at the Rubicon. The first agenda item at the inaugural Labour Party conference of February 28, 1900, was “Object of conference: a resolution in favour of working-class opinion being represented in the House of Commons.”

Even in that first debate, the new leaders made clear that the appeal would need to be beyond the traditional working classes and should not be to encompass the concept of “class war”.

But it set up a political party whose reason for existence was entirely centred on giving voice and vote to working-class opinion.

Exactly 1,000 days ago today, the British electorate went in unprecedented numbers to the ballot box for the EU referendum.

And when 17.4 million voted Leave, on a 24-year-high turnout of 72 per cent, they gave the Government the biggest democratic mandate in UK history.

With a sense of quiet jubilation, courage, determination and ambition, the people said precisely what they wanted: To cast off the sclerotic bloc’s chains and step out into the world.

Labour should be careful what it wishes for

People voted Leave in such large numbers because they felt the political class in this country had stopped listening to them. And in the almost three years since, that political class has done everything in its power to prove them right. Little wonder that minds haven’t been changed and the polls are broadly mirroring what they were doing in the run-up to the referendum.

So here we stand: a government desperately trying to flog a deal that falls short of a genuine Brexit and threatening a delay to the whole project if it isn’t accepted; an opposition apparently bent on committing electoral suicide by demanding we vote again; and a wider establishment – including civil servants and business chiefs – doing its damnedest to ensure the thing doesn’t happen at all.

The prime minister is tonight preparing a dramatic shift in her Brexit policy, namely an announcement that if her reworked Brexit deal is not passed by MPs on or before 12 March she will shortly afterwards give MPs a binding vote on whether or not to go ahead with a no-deal Brexit on 29 March.

This would be seen by many as a significant U-turn – because she will promise to abide by the will of parliament, and thereby admit that a significant Brexit delay may be necessary.

“When MPs say they want to take No Deal off the table, they really mean they want to take Brexit off the table. No Deal is the only remaining option that adheres to what we voted for in 2016: a clean break from the EU. Kill No Deal and you kill Brexit.” Brendan O’Neill on Sky

The Tories have lost a seven-point poll lead — and are now level with Labour

Forty-two per cent said the UK should delay Article 50 and hold a public vote on the next step. However, the same amount say we should leave with ‘no deal’.

WIPE OUT! Theresa May warned Tories face local election wipe-out if Brexit is delayed beyond March 29

The ongoing deadlock with the EU has led many to expect the Article 50 exit talks will have to be extended beyond the March 29 deadline.

But local government bosses and Cabinet ministers have warned No10 as well as the Tory party’s chairman that its vote at the council polls on May 2 will be decimated if they are seen to have broken the key Brexit promise.

That gives the PM just a five week extra window to wrap up Brexit and pass all necessary new laws, and 12 weeks in total from now.

A country, proud and independent, standing on its own two feet, ­confident again in our democracy, bold enough to compete by being the best, British workers making high- quality products and delivering high-quality services.

A country that says it will be the best by having better pay, conditions and a healthier environment than anyone else in Europe or worldwide.

Is that not something to be confident in voting for, my fellow MPs? Let’s get on with it.

Corbyn: “Article 50 has to be invoked now”

(24. Juni 2016) Jeremy Corbyn has said Article 50 must be invoked immediately and that a Leave vote prevailed because of anger against marginalisation and austerity.

He said the result of the poll means the exit clause – Article 50, which would give a two year period for Britain to leave – must be observed as soon as possible in an interview with the BBC.

“The British people have made their decision. We must respect that result and Article 50 has to be invoked now so that we negotiate an exit from European Union.“

I don’t think leaving the EU is the solution to the problems that led us here, but telling people who have finally had, and taken, the opportunity to vote for change that no, they can’t have what they voted for will inevitably lead to a rejection of democracy and the parties that have ‘stabbed them in the back’. And while some people would sink back into the resigned apathy they were in before, many would seek another way to find that change. Farage, Yaxley-Lennon, and Goddard etc are waiting for them.
