Larry Hughes ✒ Don’t let the facts get in the way of a good horror story.

The year 2020 has certainly been a bit different to say the least. Since having to book a second flight to get home from Asia in late March, after a two-year teaching gig (first flight cancelled by the airline without refund or even the ability to contact them) it has been disbelief all the way. Standing in the Airport in KL a very few people were wondering about some military germ warfare virus having escaped from a lab somewhere and ‘they’ weren’t telling anyone the truth. Conspiracy theory on day one! That was one young woman’s initial fear who hailed from Birmingham,England and was trying to get home quickly before all hell broke loose.

Having a contract signed for April 12th at a school in Moscow I was hopeful a month or so might rectify the situation. The ‘experts’, or at least the government favorites, had other ideas. How long ago that all seems today in mid-November. As the year comes to an end, we now seem to have two main view points on this virus. One is that it is lethal and anyone who disagrees is a granny killer and a selfish conspiracy theorist. 

The designated government ‘experts’ in USA, Ireland and UK (Fauci Holohan and Witty) are all on the same page, the page of the four (or three) horsemen of the apocalypse and doom and gloom for breakfast lunch and supper is the only thing on their menu. We are All ‘going for our tae’. This has been supported by a MSM which has permitted no alternative narrative or even debate. The BBC, for the last eight months has been nothing more than the 24/7 Covid19 self-harm station. The other viewpoint, is that the government got it all wrong on bad advice, that there was no need for the lock downs or mask wearing and if those who are vulnerable were cared for properly life could continue as close to normal as possible. So, what are the facts rather than the hysteria? Let’s just look at the man behind the lockdown strategy for a start. Then some of our ‘leaders’ behaviour during this life and death crisis.

The Prime Minister of the UK Boris Johnson was initially opting for containment rather than an attempt to eliminate the Covid-19 virus. Talking herd immunity. This policy was changed after Professor Neil Ferguson of Imperial College London presented the hapless Boris with a Modelling report which claimed 500,000 Brits would die if lock down and other drastic measures were not introduced quickly. If guidelines on lockdown were implemented then this could be reduced to 260,000. If enforced for two or three years as few as 20,000 a year may die from Covid19. As far back as May 17th The Mail On-Line was running a story on how Professor Lockdown Ferguson had already resigned and other experts in UK and USA were basically trashing his modelling and exposing it for what it was; incompetent and outdated by at least 13 years with zero basis in fact.

‘Modelling from Imperial College London epidemiologist Professor Ferguson, who stepped down from the government's Sage group at the start of May, has been described as 'totally unreliable' by other experts. The coding that produced the sobering death figures was impossible to read, and therefore cast doubts on its strength, The Telegraph reported. It is also some 13 years old, it said’.

Neither the resignation of Ferguson from SAGE or the other countless science experts and Medical professionals who disagree with or even dispute the official narrative in a limited or moderate way can get an airing on MSM. So, as Peter Hitchens suggests on Talkradio November 16th 2020, it would seem the government has been panicked by Ferguson, then panicked everyone in the UK and now having grabbed the Covid19 tiger by the tail and committed to lockdowns, are refusing to concede they got it wrong. They are going to flog this dead horse to death all over again and again in the cause of personal political survival, which is quite ironic, but hardly new. Ferguson has gone and his work has been totally trashed yet none of that is worthy of exposure. When other scientists have tried to replicate the findings using the same model, they have repeatedly failed to do so.

Prof Ferguson's model is understood to have single-handedly triggered a dramatic change in the Government's handling of the outbreak, as they moved away from herd immunity to a lockdown. Competing scientists' research - whose models produced vastly different results - has been largely discarded, they claim. David Richards, co-founder of British data technology company WANdisco said the Ferguson model was a 'buggy mess that looks more like a bowl of angel hair pasta than a finely tuned piece of programming'. He said: 'In our commercial reality we would fire anyone for developing code like this and any business that relied on it to produce software for sale would likely go bust.'

So much for Ferguson. If the saying ‘actions speak louder than words’ means anything then let’s look at the actions of those in government. Dominic Cummings drives the length of England to visit his parents who are in their 70s and surely ‘vulnerable’? The Scottish health minister, or chief medical officer, no less, drove to her second home Twice for a beak during the first lockdown. Irish TDs, 90+ of them, attended a golfing dinner and piss-up only hours after telling everyone else to stay home and isolate. Some other Irish minister flew off to Italy early on for a family holiday. Oh, and yes, Professor Lockdown himself… well he has also been having his cake and eating it.

Professor Ferguson stepped down from his role on Sage, the board of scientists advising the government through coronavirus pandemic, at the start of the month after it was revealed he had broken lockdown rules he helped to inspire. It was revealed Professor Ferguson had invited his lover, Antonia Stats to his London flat, while the British public was being told to stay home.

It is really a case of do what I say and not as I do. But remember, there is a lethal virus outside your door just waiting to get you. Apart from convincing people on the back of false data and make believe in the case of Ferguson’s modelling that people without symptoms are sick and a disease riddled menace to the general public, getting people to applaud the NHS each Thursday evening while cancer patients, those in need of dialysis and cardiac patients were all left without treatment was a master stroke. Pure genius I suspect from the unelected reptile Cummings who has now vacated 10 Downing Street and left Boris in hiding for two weeks to get over the shock. Boris already had Covid-19, seemingly, and a test would quickly confirm if he was OK. However, two weeks R+R is the choice for Boris. Like Boris and the BBC and MSM I am being lazy and focusing on one ‘expert’ mainly, Lockdown Ferguson. If people want to be scared witless or are just enjoying a year off work, fair enough, just Carry On Covid and refuse to let the facts get in the way of a good ‘horror story’.

You know you Love It.

Carry-On Covid-19

  1. The facts are that Covid-19 is ten times more lethal than ordinary flu; thousands had already died in Northern Italy and Spain before the inevitable mortality rate in the UK assisted in no small measure by superspreading evens such as Cheltenham Race Festival; Liverpool v Atletico Madrid Champions League fixture and Six Nations Rugby.

    Infections had been spreading in the hundreds rather than lower double figures (which is what Boris wanted us to believe) in the early months of this year yet Boris kept telling us that there was no problem with being in close proximity to each other and with shaking hands (cheery advice which nearly had mortal consequences for him).

    People with learning difficulties are six times more likely to die from Covid-19 yet shamefully are sixth in the queue for vaccination which is topped by the 'worried well' elderly.

    Because the UK government has handled the pandemic with monumental incompetence does not detract from the medical and social actuuality of it with a million deaths and counting world wide. Has Larry and other Covid sceptics read any stories from loved ones of those who have died before their time; BAME nurses and busdrivers for example.
