Covid rules going?* Germany tyranny* victory for Alberta* quiz for breaking lockdown

IT IS being reported by many that all remaining Covid restrictions in England ‘could’ be removed this month.
But for Scotland the farce continues with Nicola Sturgeon extending powers until September 24.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson told MPs during today that he expected English domestic rules to end ahead of the scheduled date of March 24, with the date being mooted February 21.
“It is my intention to return on the first day after the half-term recess to present our strategy for living with Covid,” Johnson said at the start of Prime Minister’s Questions.
“Provided the current encouraging trends in the data continue, it is my expectation that we will be able to end the last domestic restrictions – including the legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive – a full month early.”
The use of the word ‘could’ is not lost on News Uncut and we are interested to discover what this means for the so-called ‘Vaccine Passports’, discussed in today’s piece with Jasmine Birtles [Link] and for anyone wishing to go on holiday without needing a test to tell them whether or not they are ‘ill’.
TYRANNY is, however, alive and kicking in Germany, where Health Minister Karl Lauterbach has said in an interview with AFP that it is “not enough just to get on the nerves of the unvaccinated, you have to do more”.
He urges the swift introduction of compulsory vaccinations in the general population and, worryingly, gave a warning that he believes future ‘variants’ will be more dangerous.
He said: “There is a naïve belief that variants are becoming more and more harmless, but that’s not true. The next variant could also be more dangerous again. “You have to be prepared for that.”
THERE was another victory for the Freedom Convoy yesterday as Alberta announced that vaccine mandates and passports would be scrapped.
This is the result thousands of peaceful protestors and their global support have been hoping for and will be welcome news, not least after they have been unfairly vilified by police, media and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
But as one hand was giving, another was taking away as Alberta Premier Jason Kenney revealed that the state of emergency would continue, businesses may continue to use QR codes and vaccine passports could return should the government decide that more shots are needed.
Canada appears broken but, if you needed further proof that the wheels of the propaganda machine are well oiled, Trudeau said today: “Canada has never been so strong and together as we are now.”
REMEMBER those videos of police smashing down people’s doors and charging through their houses because they thought Covid restrictions were being broken? Well, there were plenty of them and they were as disgusting as each other.
Why did police not simply send each member who attended a questionnaire instead? Because that is exactly what is happening to those who attended the 250th [insert your own number here] party that Downing Street held during lockdown.
That’s right. The Metropolitan Police plan to email a quiz to 50 people alleged to have been at events on eight dates between May 2020 and April 2021.
More proof, if any were needed, that it is ‘them and us’.
QUESTION OF THE DAY
FORGET February 21 – should every last Covid restrictions be ended with immediate effect?
