Covid-19 latest: it’s rising uncontrollably across the UK

Here’s the bad news: 3,500 infections now daily, 620 schools infected with Coronavirus. No ifs, or buts, this is a moral crime committed by those MPs who voted to send kids back to school with no protections in place while voting social distancing for MPs until November. You are 100% responsible. — Tory Fibs (@ToryFibs) September 12, 2020 Incidentally, that was at 1.46pm. Here’s the situation at 5.59pm: 643 UK Schools now hit by Coronavirus infections. — Tory Fibs (@ToryFibs) September 12, 2020 That’s right – in four hourse, 23…

POLL: with the second Covid-19 wave well under way, shall we pre-empt the Tories and lay blame?

Who can disagree with this? I think it’s fair to say that the second wave has begun. Looks ready to rise as fast as it did back in March now. — Ken. 🐝 (@_ken91) September 7, 2020 It does indeed. And the Tories seem keen to spread the blame, offering several candidates for us to accuse already. But we don’t have to believe them! It’s time for a poll: Who do you think is responsible? #SecondWave — The Agitator (@UKDemockery) September 7, 2020 Have YOU donated to my…

Hancock’s blame game: young people are causing the rise in Covid-19, not him. Oh really?

Did you believe our lying Sickness Secretary when he tried to blame young people breaking the rules for the spike in Covid-19 cases? Only last week, Matt Hancock was caught lying about the suicide rate in the UK. Now, as the number of Covid-19 infections reaches a level it hasn’t approached since the middle of lockdown in May, it seems he’s trying to justify refusing to lock down again by blaming it on people aged 20-29 who are breaking the rules: Speaking to Radio 1 Newsbeat, the health secretary pointed…

Sunak threatens tax raid in yet another Tory u-turn

This won’t play well with the Tory backbenchers: after u-turn after u-turn over Covid-19 and schools, their government is promising yet another u-turn – over tax. Tories pride themselves on being a tax-cutting party. But Rishi Sunak is said to be threatening not just one but several tax hikes: The Tories promising a tonne of tax increases after winning an election pledging the precise opposite. It’s like the early 90s again (except without the gdp growth, historic deficits and impending climate catastrophe). — Aaron Bastani (@AaronBastani) August 29, 2020 And…

If Grant Shapps wants us to go back to work, why is HE still working from home?

Tories just don’t get it, do they? Leadership demands that you give people something to follow. Example: Grant Shapps trying to get people to go back to all that time-wasting travelling to and from their places of work when they can do the job just as easily from home (and nine out of 10 people say they prefer it). Here he is, being interviewed at his home, telling us to go to work: "Get back to the office, peasants" says Tory minister giving an interview, which is part of his…

‘R’ rate speculation show how even ‘experts’ say what suits them rather than what you need to know

Using an ad-blocker? PLEASE SWITCH IT OFF My ads don’t cost you anything but they do provide me the money I need to live. Using an ad-blocker on this site is as bad as stealing. So, are Covid-19 infections about to rise exponentially again, now that the ‘R’ rate has risen above 1 for the first time on record? Apparently not. The so-called ‘experts’ are telling us outbreaks in a few “hotspots” are pushing the average up. But wasn’t that always the case? Here in This Writer’s part of Mid…

Awkward! Johnson proved wrong to ease lockdown as ‘R’ rate rises in most English regions

One of the main reasons Boris Johnson has given for easing lockdown conditions in England from July 4 is a reduction in the reproduction rate of Covid-19. He said that, with ‘R’ well below 1 – meaning for each person infected, fewer than one person would catch the disease – restrictions could be loosened. But it seems he spoke too soon. Look at this: Skwawkbox explains: Manchester mayor Andy Burnham has tweeted the latest regional ‘R’-rate table showing how fast the coronavirus is spreading across England’s twelve regions – and the news…

Coronavirus: Tories threaten tax increase on self-employed after non-offer of help

Typical Tories: they make a long list of promises that get broken within a week and then try to charge us a fortune for them. So, with the self-employed, they’ve offered to pay 80 per cent of normal profits (not wages, as with employees). But they won’t even start providing this until some time in June. And self-employed people will be taxed for receiving that money. And in the meantime, they want any of us whose income stream dries up to claim Universal Credit, joining an online/telephone queue of tens of…

Coronavirus: the Tories have LIED about the daily death toll – INCREASING fears. Why?

Take a look at this headline: Is it working? UK records 43 coronavirus deaths in past 24 hours compared to 87 yesterday You can see it in situ by following the link at the bottom of the article. It was a Daily Mail headline on March 25. It’s a lie, of course – but this time the Mail doesn’t seem to be to blame. No, this time it’s the Tory government who seem to be at fault. It wasn’t realistic for the government to claim that the number of deaths had halved,…

MPs get above-inflation pay rise to £82,000 after creating massive increase in in-work poverty

Doesn’t it make you proud to be British? The so-called Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority has given MPs an enormous pay rise. They’ll now receive £82,000 as their basic salary, with ministers receiving much more. That’s a 3.1 per cent increase – much higher than the 1.8 per cent inflation rate. And they’ll also get increased expenses – ostensibly to cover staffing costs. Meanwhile, eight million working-age people are in poverty, with people in work totalling nearly 60 per cent of those in poverty. So the Tories are rewarding themselves hugely…
