The Johnson Government Has Totally Lost the Plot

It is now illegal to "mingle" -- at a time when just 1 in 100 deaths in the country are from Covid

The ‘rule of six’ came into force on Monday. As part of the new Covid regulations, the government has banned… mingling. Yes, you read that correctly.

Brits are now banned from ‘mingling’ with anyone outside their group of six when out and about. This rule applies to people attending events organised by businesses, charities and public authorities – that is, most public events.

It is far from clear, however, what the definition of ‘mingling’ is. This has prompted some to wonder whether having a conversation in the street or the park could now be illegal.

Home secretary Priti Patel was asked that question on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. She said that groups of people stopping to talk to each other in the street would indeed be in breach of the new restrictions, if the total number of people involved exceeded six.

Patel is actually wrong about the new rules. But this does not simply demonstrate her incompetence. The fact that even the home secretary does not understand the regulations shows how contradictory, confusing and illogical they have become.

How have we got to a situation where, with deaths from Covid nearly non-existent, we are arguing over what kinds of mingling should be illegal? The government has totally lost the plot.

Nobody is listening to the stupid fat retard. Really. He contradicts himself (and his own government) so often that anyone with an IQ bigger than their shoe size has stopped paying attention. This will not stop the torys running the country into the ground though. All western leaders are inane, foolish, gutless, narcissistic swine and that has been it’s downfall. They can only look east with envy and awe. You reap what you sow and if all you plant is diseased all you will sow is death.
I can only assume all this carnage is part of the ‘Great Reset’ about to descend on the West, digital neo feudalism in a security state for the plebs and debt right offs for the scumbags in the banks and the government.

if people speak with each other they might revolt; in the late 1800’s British authorities closed pubs when they were quiet and people were engaged–when they were drunk and jabbering they stayed open since no subversive conversations were heard

Your government is doing what ALL governments do,,, eventually.

The fact that flattening the curve morphed into deaths morphed into the cases, the Cases, THE CASES,,, Should show even the most ignorant among us it’s all a scam.

The point is “THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY’RE DOING”,,, and those following their ‘orders’ are just the kind of folk they want as citizens.

one in a hundred deaths are from covid?? This from an article about how covid deaths have been exaggerated??
True figure is more likely to be .005.
Less than flu in other words.

Even the CDC has announced, in a document being ignored by the mainstream media, that COVID has been responsible for only about 10,000 deaths.

Yes, cases are high but deaths are low, single figures most days. Less than 100 deaths per week.

More to all of this than what we are told and it appears that all the 5 Eyes states are doing exactly the same, US is also confronting a possible civil/colour war.
