This website is run by volunteers. It was originally set up to support people through what was then believed to be a very short "emergency lockdown", but the experts got it wrong, the tsunami never appeared.
Covid is a killer, but so is normal seasonal flu and so are heart attacks, cancer and a host of other things that are far far more important than covid and which we can do something about. If you care about people's health, their rights, their future, your job, public services, that government policy should be based on evidence and not hysteria, please come along to one of the protest meetings and get your voice heard. Please research the subject, write to your representatives, write to papers, post your views on social media and tell your friends.
Under the Human Rights act there is a right to liberty:
Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person. No one shall be deprived of his liberty save in the following cases..
whilst there is an exemption for infectious diseases that seems applicable to covid:
(e) the lawful detention of persons for the prevention of the spreading of infectious diseases,
the European Court Guidance on this exemption makes it clear that governments are only allowed to detain "infected persons" and moreover, any law that contravenes this provision, must be interpreted as if it were compatible. Thus in effect, any laws or rules that remove the right to liberty of people, can be read as (possibly) removing the right to liberty of Infected persons and them alone.
Regular Saturday, Nelson's Monument, Glasgow Green, 12pm for 1pm & first Saturday in Month at Holyrood
Anti-lockdown protest to be held outside Labour Party offices, 290 Bath Street, Glasgow, 4-6 pm Wednesday, 21st October.
An initial estimate of the scale and duration of this current wave/ripple. Summary: I predict that we are already at peak with about 140-150 deaths per day (~10% of all deaths) and that it will drop to about 70 death/day by mid November and about 20 by mid December, which is hopefully low enough that it will appear to be over by Christmas. However, I would expect an even smaller ripples in the new year, perhaps peaking at around 20-30 deaths/day (~2% of total deaths I suggest in January/February). I estimate that about 6000 deaths were delayed six months by the earlier lockup, that the total number of deaths attributed to covid will be about 48,000 and the cost per full life equivalent "saved" is about £5BILLION per life.
