Prejudice and Influence

No 10 defends the activities of Dominic Cummings, a right-wing promoter of extreme Brexit and source of this Government’s most extreme ideas at the Science guidance body Sage, where two members have complained that Cummings has been more than an observer but has directed the course of discussion to suit his own pet theories.

Hence, we believe that the policy of seeking ‘herd immunity’ and not counting deaths in the community or care-homes, has come directly from this advisor to the PM. This self-satisfied feedback mechanism has no place in forming policy: it is nothing but reinforced prejudice and has caused the UK to be the worst country in the world for managing this pandemic. Cummings and his role are directly responsible for the brutal course the UK has taken.

The economic fallout will go on for years. The social damage of overwhelming the NHS on one hand and ignoring the massive overflow of patients who could not be saved, on the other is effectively genocide by inaction. It is the disabling of expertise through interference and influence.

Britain is one of the most tragic offenders of cheating the greater population from the benefits of taxation.

Hiding real statistics, making false statements and pursuing nihilistic and hypocritical goals makes this Government both cruel and heartless, complicit in damaging the fabric of the society it pretends to support and enables massive and legalised tax fraud.

Let’s hope that a near-death experience allegedly suffered by Boris Johnson has woken up his conscience and informed him of the dangers of pursuing the course of his Government has taken thus far.

Austerity ended up being more expensive than maintaining social services.

Mutation incubation

The UK policy of allowing the spread of the Coronavirus Covid-19 to leave behind ‘herd immunity’ sounds cruel and heartless and therefore appeals to the heart of Government. It is the kind of pseudo-intellectual postulated science that Dominic Cummings would approve of, the practise of ‘natural eugenics’ at work, to thin down the population to those who develop natural immunity and therefore leave behind ‘homo superior’ in the quest to conquer the selective fatalness of the virus.

There is one problem with this theory. The larger the spread of the virus, the more genetic material it is exposed to, the more it learns about its hosts. Alongside ‘herd immunity’ is natural evolution at work, the virus is now more able to mutate in its host incubation.

The UK, with its maverick approach, is potentially creating a danger far worse than the current outbreak. The virus would learn more about the Brexit gene and how to wipe out our exposed nationalistic white underbelly. And the world can thank our idiots in Government for another outbreak, the second phase: Covid-20 or Covid-21 which may claim 5% of humanity, affect other parts of the body than the vulnerable and exposed respiratory system. Another virus that claimed millions of lives, HIV, infected the circulatory system, but its nature required fluid exchange. The fatal combination of a retro-virus that infects the blood but that can be transmitted by a cough could wipe out humanity.

The prevalence of chubby mouth-breathers in the human stock of the Brexit generation being the incubation medium of the virus that wipes out humanity is the risk that allowing mass infection of the relatively weak Covid-19 virus to take hold. Isolation is one way to prevent it from mutating but it may already be too late. Our lovely Government with all its stupid ‘theories’ risks incubating a monster.

And referring to people as a ‘herd’ is truly the sign that the PM thinks like a racist. Oh, let’s try that, it sounds radical and insane enough to work. But like most decisions taken by Boris Johnson and his personal Igor, Cummings, it is based on schoolboy error and a profoundly incomplete thinking process.

We have voted in this level of incompetence for 5 years.

Dominic Cummings

In The Guardian, Dominic Cummings’ views from 2014 are explored that he thought it highly likely that generic engineering would enable the selection of the highest IQ from a range of fertilised ova, and this ability should be extended on the NHS so as not to breed a race of super-intelligent offspring exclusively for the very wealthy.

Geneticists have roundly rubbished his assertions that the selection of babies based on IQ would even be possible, let alone ethical, or facing the moral implications of introducing eugenics into the NHS.

It is more than a concern that at the heart of Government we have someone who thinks in such ridiculously abhorrent ways about human lives, about science and the extension of his thinking to the shaping of British society is profoundly disturbing.

It is disturbing that the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, relies on Mr Cummings and his unconventional ‘genius’ to guide Britain into a Brave New World outside Europe upon increasingly fanciful terms and reducing chances of there being a free trading relationship with the largest market in the world that the UK has enjoyed 42 years membership of, and indeed had a hand in building the single market that has kept the British economy strong.

It appears that Mr Johnson’s guru is selling snake oil. He has cultish ideas and no firm grip on reality. This Government appears doomed.

Wales

Countries with such resources and a small population can work if they create an innovation economy: for example, a tech nirvana based on low rent, free electricity, situated in remote low tax villages on a train line with free internet.

That could become a viable economy with the right imagination and leadership without costing much.

Why rely on traditional trade with England when it is so minor compared to the potential wealth freedom from it could offer?

Brexit is the end of the UK, ultimately there is little point being ruled by a dominant economy except that it creates traditional economic dependence rather than jobs for their children who go to work in English cities.

The Fiendish and Evil destruction of democratic process

The Government minister for Brexit has asked for a rule change to democratic process such that Parliament can’t amend the deal that Theresa May has cobbled together, but could reject it (and thus enforce a no deal condition). 

This is another significant day that the Government tries to destroy our democratic framework and remove scrutiny for its imbalanced approach.  Of course Parliament can change the process if it is a choice between damaging our economic and political clout in the world and complete dismal failure.

There is another choice.  Put the final decision parliament can come up with and compare it with the status quo.  Only then will a proper referendum without any propaganda establish any democratic legitimacy for this shallow attempt to highjack process and destroy the ability of the Parliament to correct the course of a government that is dead set on ruining the lives of millions.

They are so riveted to their negotiating strategy which is unfortunate as they have little skill in creating a negotiable position.  The Government has failed to notice that theirs is the act of democratic destruction that will take decades or even wars to amend?

No, full power to Parliament to review, amend or reject the terms the Government propose to exit the EU or do not exit the EU.  No deal is not an option and should not be considered.  

We run a trade deficit with the EU because we import more because they make things our society depends upon, like healthy vegetables and very well made cars.  We export more to the rest of the world because of our weapon sales to Saudi Arabia (now that we have sold our chip making powerhouse, we protect our weapons industry?  Is that the plan?  Our exports are mainly services, will that be affected by leaving the EU?
