Is Johnson guilty of human rights abuses over coronavirus care home deaths? Could be!

Boris Johnson: would you trust a man with that look on his face?

Amnesty International and Liberty reckon Boris Johnson could be guilty of human rights abuses because he has failed to protect the UK’s 500,000 care home residents from the coronavirus.

Judge for yourself:

It is feared the Government’s blundering response may have led to as many as 17,500 deaths of elderly residents so far.

Person Centred Software, which supplies clinical systems, claims its data suggests care home deaths of 17,505 since March 1.

Human Rights law says the Government must protect the life of residents and staff in care homes, preventing avoidable deaths. They must also prevent inhuman, degrading treatment.

The Human Rights Act 1998 also imposes an obligation to allow a “good death”, meaning end-of-life care is fundamental.

But since the outbreak there have been reports care homes have not had access to the medication needed to prevent suffering.

Earlier this month Health secretary Matt Hancock denied any suggestions that elderly care home patients were being sacrificed for the young.

He didn’t say elderly care home patients weren’t being sacrificed at all, though.

And of course, Hancock is the Tory minister who lied, bare-faced, to us about the number of coronavirus tests being carried out, per day, in order to save his own face.

Is it beyond possibility that he could be bending the facts over care home deaths?

    My cynicism suggests that this has been done, in no particular order, to release a huge amount of capital via wills and inheritances, save a huge amount of money on elderly care, empty beds for the next victims of the ongoing disabled pogrom…..just a thought. The Tories continue to feed off of the poor and defenseless and I am sad to say that this is no surprise to me.

    Is it now time to consider negligent manslaughter.

    I believe it is.

    Of course the fascist tories are guilty of state institutional murder of thousands and thousands of elderly women and men!! The facts are clear – the fascist tories ignored the pleas of Care Homes staff and owners for medical attention and PPE clothing. Reason is because all these women and men dying will save the fascist tories a few pence in not having to pay out State Pensions! Plus why bother to have care homes when the pandemic ‘rids the fascist tories of all those non-humans!’

    The pennies being saved by not having to provide these ‘non-humans’ with medical care is ‘value for money’ according to the fascist tory mantra!

    But I predict the fascist tories will ensure they are never prosecuted for their crimes against elderly women and men because they are ‘not valuable!’

    Surely it was a criminal act to send elderly patients in hospitals, some of whom had the virus, back to their care homes where it was impossible to isolate them? And to deny them life-saving treatment?
