Overcrowding or overreacting III: observing oncoming oneirodynia...

...we've been here before. Do [Are] my visions of future nightmares akin to The Camp of the Saints [PDF book link] overegging the pudding? Well, is anyone surprised about the newly released ONS data on ethic groups in England and Wales? Bear in mind this is the actual divulged information given to census representatives or filled out on the forms/online; I am sure it is all 100% accurate and the reality, no extras hiding, no unknowns** {sarc off}.
Census 2021 info is finally coming out...yes, 'finally': in case you hadn't noticed we are 30 days from 2023...why the delay? One snippet [in London] "36.8% of people identified as “White: English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish or British” in 2021 – down from 44.9% in 2011."...under 37%, that isn't very high is it, even for a 'metropolis'? 

More: "As part of the 'White' ethnic group, 74.4% of the population in England and Wales identified their ethnic group as 'English, Welsh, Scottish, Northern Irish or British'".
  • 87.5% in 2001
  • 80.5% in 2011
  • 74.4% in 2021
This isn't prejudice; it isn't racist and now it isn't a conspiracy theory either. Yet another one becoming fact; think that's 25-nil now. 

** And we also know that anything up to a million or more are unknown, that is confirmed by government personnel, and the current polemic of the English Channel taxi/RN/RNLI people-trafficking service is a trickle in comparison. Hence weak politicians cries for an amnesty etc (to stop/hide the headache).

Omnivore order...

Well what a surprise...not. "Red meat is not a health risk. New study slams years of shoddy research"...[LINK] both parts of that title deserve looking at, the shoddy research becoming more and more of a problem in very field of science. 

  • Studies have been linking red meat consumption to health problems like heart disease, stroke, and cancer for years, but these invariably suffer from methodological limitations. 
  • In an unprecedented effort, health scientists at the University of Washington scrutinized decades of research on red meat consumption and its links to various health outcomes, introducing a new way to assess health risks in the process. 
  • They only found weak evidence that unprocessed red meat consumption is linked to colorectal cancer, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes, and ischemic heart disease, and no link at all between eating red meat and stroke."
More HERE with both sides of the argument ("Red meat causes heart disease. Except when it doesn’t?" link pre-pandemic) from the same Big Think.

More here, very good 'both-sided' article and comments: No Chris (Carmichael, Founder & Head Coach of CTS) we won't: Will We Ever Stop Arguing About Red Meat? [LINK]

Ows opines: eat what you fucking like, just don't overdo it, and do some exercise (walk). 

Oops. Oh-oh...

No hiding now: hundreds of thousands have died: will there be an accounting? Excess deaths are through the roof and no one is on telly every night telling the people. Why not? Because it isn't a virus anymore, and errr... just maybe it's the solution they provided that is the problem? 

Joel Smalley, whose Metatron Substack is Dead Man Talking, writes (and The Daily Sceptic also carries) that Sweden Wins! Sweden Wins! Country That Refused Lockdown and Kept Schools Open Has Lowest Pandemic Mortality in the World.
Just if you think Joel is 'hiding the real numbers by doing it by total excess deaths then:
"The somewhat less meaningful COVID death tally (per million population) does not have the same relative magnitude since different countries use different methods for recording what is and what isn’t a COVID death, on top of the fact, of course, that it’s a Pyrrhic victory to mitigate COVID deaths at the expense of higher excess non-COVID deaths."
Also, just if you start to think 'Hey, New Zealand and Australia were right to have full-on totalitarian jackboot lockdowns, look how well they doing!'...erm, it's been getting a lot worse there since these figures were compiled (excess death-wise). The whole piece is worth a read especially the conclusions, and Joel's final comment:
"It might just be me but I don’t think stupid politicians, greedy pharmaceutical companies and academics whose careers depend on pharma funding are the best people for the job."
Not entirely unrelated immediate update: Only last month I mentioned that "They have done more to grow worldwide vaccine hesitancy in the last 30 months than in the previous 60 years or more" and lo and behold eugyppius brings us this:
"To the surprise of nobody, it turns out that the campaign to increase vaccine uptake via social exclusion, threats, lies and firings has reduced public confidence in vaccination across the board
And links to the new paper: "Is vaccine confidence an unexpected victim of the COVID-19 pandemic?"

yes yes, only several million of us thinking that but FFS, whooda thunk it? Amusingly (probably to enable publishing?) the publishers wrote "Paradoxically, despite the success of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, vaccine confidence has significantly declined since the onset of the pandemic" [facepalm]

Update: as an afterthought really; no need to go into a rerun of the tit-for-tat 'Norway is better than Sweden' that we had to endure from the naysayers during the pandemic, desperate to avoid naughty Sweden looking good: 2019 deaths were a big factor in 2020 COVID deaths...in fact they were in the UK too, a good part of our Spring 2020 death surge was those that hadn't dies the previous winter...all water under the bridge. God forbid we overreacted?

Objects of odium, ostracised...

Following the earlier overture things have heated up. The push back now has it's own push back: Melissa Healy at the LA Times muses that "It's as if [the non-covid-jabbed are] no longer hazardous to the rest of us. Or are they?" It's as if...? ...WTF? Really? [Hat-tip: The Naked Emperor

Melissa writes: "For almost two years, COVID-19 vaccine holdouts have been the objects of earnest pleading and financial inducements, of social-media shaming and truth campaigns. They’ve missed weddings, birthday celebrations and recitals, and even forfeited high-stakes athletic competitions. Until last month, they were barred from entering the United States and more than 100 other countries. Now the unvaccinated are suddenly back in the mix.

I - an object - am still barred Melissa. Pharma profits need maintaining.  But of course she has an 'expert' or two to boost the ridiculous pap she has written. Amazing how moronic some experts are becoming too. 

BOB's artwork may seem a bit OTT but it isn't. The comparisons to Nazi Germany batted about may also seem OTT but they aren't: what happened is exactly how 'it' starts. Gina was right

The power was wielded by many 'normal' people, they now want forgive and forget: as Laura puts it so well: Just say no...

"... the people who told you were non-essential, that your children would kill your elderly parents or grandparents, that you had to save your country's pathetic and useless socialized medical system by locking you in your house, that you and your children had to take several dangerous ("safe and effective") injections that you didn't want or need and lied about every detail about it, the same people who taped up park benches, forced masks on toddlers, kicked autistic children off of planes, imprisoned frail and vulnerable senior citizens and disabled humans with sick and contagious covid patients in their respective nursing homes and homes for the developmentally disabled in order for them to die en masse, the ones who dragged pregnant women getting fresh air from park benches, kept people from getting regular medical care and disease treatment, refused organ transplants to the unvaccinated, forced old and sick people to die alone behind plastic barriers in hospitals, ripped families apart and destroyed friendships, businesses and economies, yes those people want an amnesty. Well screw that." 
"The people who enacted these policies are anti-human psychopaths who do not deserve mercy. Have you seen any real apologies for their behaviour? I saw one on Twitter and the new Premier of Alberta is making a good start of it. But mostly what I see is deeply sinister and shameless humans who just want forgiveness and absolution without doing any of the requisite moral and spiritual work i.e. sincerely apologizing, repenting and vowing never again to repeat their evil ways."
"Absolutely and positively no".

Ostler's obscurantist optimistic overture...

Poor Emily. I really do think she was an honest convert now seeking to stop a tsunami of hate. But she stuck her head above the parapet and is reaping the whirlwind. I think the bad cat was the first to pick up on it, "emily oster's no good, really bad, terrible idea" [LINK] then Igor: "Wow. The Atlantic has a front-page article (archive link) by Prof. Emily Oster, asking for 'Pandemic Amnesty'". But Mary Harrington at Unherd has a great take on 'The tyranny of a Covid amnesty'. 
 Nor is having expertise or evidence on your side much of a defence. 
Read the comments. 

Luckily for me I realise many may not even know what I'm talking about because they do not inhabit the various bubbles that are screeching (with reason IMHO) about Emily Oster, in The Atlantic, who suggested a 'pandemic amnesty'. 

As per Eugyppius "I don’t know much about the American pandemic pundits, but I gather that Brown University economist and “parenting guru” Emily Oster is far from the worst of them.". 

Very far from the worst and I bet there are many hoping the idea catches on...it won't.  The Naked Emperor today shows a few more of the scumbags...of the many...they were wrong, knowingly. They helped totalitarianism, they were 'the concentration camp guards' but with less of an excuse than those Nazi enablers. They demonised and in some cases drove to death many people. They will not be forgotten; they will not be forgiven. They are evil. They are Legion.

...they are known. 

Update: I am totally in agreement with - and have many things in common - with what Gary says [Coronababble] [hat-tip: Daily Sceptic] "One thing is for sure: We must never forget what the political leaders and public health specialists inflicted upon us. Whether the reason was weakness, groupthink, conflict of interest or unadulterated corruption, the miscreants must all be held to account and pay a price for terrorising the people they are meant to serve."
