    Thumbs up Lord Sumption on Lockdowns and the dangers of 'Group Think'...

    If this guy was running the country and making the decisions, we'd be in a far better place now (the interview was originally broadcast in May, but as we're entering phases of Lockdown again (albeit for the time being locally, not nationally, the points he's making are still very relevant):



    Everyone should watch this video, as he talks a LOT of sense!

    Thumbs up "It's up to US, NOT the state, to assess what risks we take with OUR own bodies..."

    And if you don't want to watch the 30-odd minutes of the above video, then watch this 8-min long one instead, where he ROASTS a 'BBC News, agenda-programmed robot' on the subject, whilst making some extremely salient points:

    Interesting that her only objection to his perfectly well-reasoned argument is that people will not be capable of making their own decision as to whether to take the risk.

    Classic example of middle-class lefty 'nanny-state' thinking - ordinary people are too thick to make decisions for themselves, they need to be treated like children, told what to do, and punished if they disobey. You can see who the real fascists are.

    Exactly, mate. Who the REAL fascists are is patently obvious! The fact is, you simply *cannot* create a risk-free world, through continually imposing draconian controls upon the population, or indeed via any other means. So ultimately, you HAVE to learn to live alongside viruses and diseases, which are part of human existence, whilst still functioning as free-thinking human beings, otherwise the very fabric of society as we know it would be torn apart.

    In that respect, the key point he made, and which I've highlighted, is that we CANNOT continue to allow the state to TAKE CONTROL of our basic HUMAN RIGHTS, by allowing them to make all the key decisions which impact on that - and ultimately on our freedoms, in what is supposedly a democratic and FREE (not state controlled) country!!

    And btw, that includes the notion of making any vaccine that's released mandatory, as has oft been mooted, and so far not ruled out by the government... Quite simply, NOTHING could possibly qualify more as an infringement of our human rights, than if that ever becomes law, as such an immoral infringement of such should NEVER be allowed to occur in any truly free or civilised society.

    And it must NEVER be allowed to happen, as the potential consequences are frightening, should the authorities be allowed to FORCE people to inject something into their veins that *could potentially* be harmful, you just never know with these things and how people may react to any vaccine that's largely still untested, then they'd have effectively been given carte blanche to do WHATEVER else they wanted in future!!

    Why? Well, quite simply because there is nothing more personally invasive you can do to a human being than FORCE THEM to inject something into their bodies... Therefore, if the authorities got the green light to do that, after somehow justifying it, then forcing anything else upon the population in future would be a piece of cake!

    That's why if mandatory vaccines to fight this virus (voluntary is a very different matter) ever become a serious proposal - WE MUST FIGHT IT with all our might, or life will never be the same again, in terms of the freedoms we've all taken for granted here in the UK, as the state would gain more power to rule us than ever before, and the lockdowns we've seen recently, and the nannying of our behaviour and movements - and the control imposed on our lives by the state - will just be the tip of the iceberg....

    Slow down there, Bald Eagle!

    There isn't even a vaccine yet and there may well never be. Never mind it being compulsory to have it.

    I think it is very unlikely to be compulsory. Even if they really wanted to make it compulsory there are a number of practical considerations that would make that pretty much impossible - cost, availability, and it being too difficult to enforce.

    Lol... I know - I'm simply pre-empting things!

    *HOWEVER* mandatory vaccines should simply NOT be allowed in any FREE country, on the basis of its immorality alone, so it shouldn't even be discussed, let alone remain a possibility, however remote, as the government haven't ruled it out. Such measures should simply be completely off limits, on the grounds of a gross infringement of your human rights.

    Did you ever think that they'd be able to imprison virtually the whole country with lockdowns before this epidemic struck us? I certainly didn't, so don't think they couldn't impose other such mandatory measures if they deemed it necessary (based their skewed/biased and largely illogical criteria)!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT anti-vaccines (as long as they've been properly tested and *genuinely* safe); I'm anti anything of that nature becoming mandatory in a supposedly free and democratic country. To repeat what Lord Sumption said:

    "It's up to US, NOT the state, to assess what risks we take with OUR own bodies..." And it should also be up to US what we PUT INTO our own bodies, or otherwise - and NO-ONE should EVER be allowed to FORCE us to do otherwise, under ANY circumstances. It's as simple as that!

    And btw, as an aside, I'm delighted about MPs now being given a vote on the government's emergency coronavirus powers, and those powers (which they should never been allowed in the first place) now being subject to proper scrutiny, and also for how the speaker for the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle, lambasted BJ and his government for having treated the House with such contempt:

    https://www.express.co.uk/news/polit...eo-PMQs-latest

    Well done! And also well done to the vociferous Tory back-benchers who have forced this action on the government and who have stood up to defend the democratic process, thus curbing the government's authoritarian excesses. People power at its best!

    .
    They didn't imprison the whole country. There's no way to do that without putting the army on the streets with orders to shoot. Even then there would be nothing like enough manpower to forcibly lock down the whole country.

    The lock down depended entirely on voluntary cooperation of the population, and they got that because people understood that it was necessary and so complied with it.

    That wouldn't happen if a lockdown was brought in without good reason.

    I doubt they would try either. They might though make it attractive.
    Any attempts at enforcement I believe would be stopped. The Queen still has a fair amount of clout should she want to use it. The whole of the armed forces for a start
