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.
Now that 2020 is over, I thought I would plot the bi-annual number of deaths per 100,000 population.
As you will no doubt notice, 2019-2020 not only doesn't show an alarming number of deaths, it is in fact the lowest (equal) number of deaths out of all the years in the last two decades. Isn't that GREAT - we should be celebrating that life expectancy went up over the last two years as we had a record breaking low number of deaths.
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.
