Care home deaths cover-up suggests Johnson and Hancock are guilty as sin

Suppose a disaster happens and people die. The authorities in charge say they failed to anticipate it, take responsibility, someone resigns and we all say: fair enough – they made a mistake and they admitted it.


Now suppose people die but the authorities pretend they had taken precautions to prevent it – and we find out that they were lying.

That looks far more serious, doesn’t it?

It makes it seem that the authorities concerned intended that the disaster would happen.

Why else would they lie?

Now let’s consider the fact that more than 9,000 people have died in care homes, with a further more-than-10,000 deaths unaccounted-for.

Boris Johnson told the nation in Prime Minister’s Questions that the government imposed safety procedures on homes, the day before they were imposed on the rest of the country – and then he tried to tell us Keir Starmer was lying when he said that wasn’t true.

Starmer then quoted the government’s own guidance back to him in a letter…

…and you know what Johnson did?

He sent Starmer a note warning him to get back in line – because he’s supposed to be supporting the government.

Very revealing, that.

It doesn’t matter, though – because Starmer has already let the cat out of the bag, so Johnson’s attempt to bring him down means nothing.

Oh, and we’ve also got more evidence from first-party sources:

Okay “a care home manager” might not seem convincing to you.

Try this, from talk radio channel LBC:

LBC’s Ben Kentish pointed to tonight’s press conference which saw deputy chief medical officer Jenny Harries state care home advice issued on 25 February stayed in place until 12 March because “they had the view that there was no sustained community transmission in the UK.”

However, Ben Kentish found minutes from a sub-committee at scientific advisory group SAGE on 10 February which said:

“It is a realistic probability that there is already sustained transmission in the UK, or that it will be become established in the coming weeks.”

Ben reiterated that this was dated 10 February – two weeks before the official care home guidance was issued and more than a month before it was withdrawn.

So SAGE advice on February 10 was that “there is already sustained transmission in the UK” but from February 25 to March 12 the government’s line was that “there is currently no transmission of COVID-19 in the community. It is therefore very unlikely that anyone receiving care in a care home or the community will become infected”. But Matt Hancock said the Tories were protecting care home residents from February. Clearly that is not true.

And what happened? Here’s the Office for National Statistics:

And look – all those excess deaths started happening right when the Tories said they were protecting care home residents. How about that?

In fact, the Tories didn’t lift a finger to stop deaths in care homes until April 15, when the epidemic there was well advanced:

So, doesn’t it seem that Matt Hancock has been telling untruths but Owen Jones is right? See for yourself:

And coronavirus infections have broken out in one-third of all English care homes – more than 5,000 homes:

Kerry-Anne is right. It is a massacre.

And all the information suggests that’s exactly what Boris Johnson and Matt Hancock intended it to be. Otherwise, why lie?

    Yet Toby Youngs disgusting eugenecist remarks about the elder generation being a waste of money treating are repeated without any comment, let alone condemnation. The nudge unit want to make these conversations “normal” with the support of the MSM.

    I wish people’s would listen to that old woman how in Germany they took her mother away and informed a little bit later she had died all part of their aktion T4 fast forward it’s happening here on a larger scale but not many realising it. How many culled from benefits denial how many killed now by this virus a ticking time bomb people’s get infected in the carehomes go to hospital get diagnosed with virus sent back oh dear if one can’t see they culling the stock then one is blind

    We have to keep hammering away at this.
    I fear that this is happening so close to the General Election that many who voted Tory are just not ready to reassess their decision. After a few years, it’s possible to disclaim responsibility as , being so far in the past, your own comments are forgotten and you can vote another way.
    But to admit your vote was wrong only 5 months later suggests that you must have been very foolish. Many people may well be clinging to their apparent support for BoJob for as long as possible rather than admit their error.
    This will be frustrating to us as we can see how bad the government is, yet opinion polls will stun us by suggesting that the government is still popular.
    Let’s not be distracted. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

    Let’s get rid of Doctor Death and his hienous minions NOW before the cretins can do any more harm. Come to think of it where is that bloated toe rag — he’s refused 90% of all interviews and is surely in hiding. Is he in heaven, is he in hell, or is he in the fridge!
