New figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics show that the number of deaths from flu and pneumonia is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.

The figures show that there were 18,500 total deaths in England and Wales in the week up until April 10, which is around 8,000 above what would be considered “normal” at this time of year. Around a third of those 18,500 are linked to coronavirus.

“But the figures for 2020 also show the impact of flu and pneumonia compared to coronavirus,” reports the BBC. “The number of deaths from flu and pneumonia – at more than 32,000 – is three times higher than the total number of coronavirus deaths this year.”

The report points out that the 18,500 death figure is the highest since January 2000, “when there was a bad flu outbreak.” The number of deaths recorded in the week up until April 10 in 2015, when there was also a particularly deadly flu season, is also relatively close to the number of recorded coronavirus deaths in the same week this year.

Back in February, a leaked government document suggested coronavirus would infect 80 per cent of Brits and killed 500,000. So far, the number of coronavirus deaths recorded by hospitals across the whole of the UK stands at 17,337.

Supporters of the lockdown policies assert that social distancing measures have kept death numbers relatively low based on what was previously predicted.

Others point to the fact that NHS hospitals are four times emptier than normal and overspill hospitals built to prevent existing hospitals from being overwhelmed were never used to claim that the coronavirus threat was exaggerated.

Whatever the case, the British government has not indicated when it will start to lift lockdown measures despite other European countries already beginning to relax them.

Spanish Officials to Hire Foreign Snitch Squads to Report on Illegal House Parties

Fun seekers face massive fines.

Under the justification of stopping the spread of COVID-19, officials on the Spanish island of Ibiza are planning to hire teams of snitch squads made up of foreigners who will report illegal house parties to the authorities.

Yes, really.

Organizers of illegal parties face gigantic fines of up to €600,000 euros, but that apparently hasn’t deterred some people from risking financial ruin after local authorities once again shut down nightclubs and imposed a ban on mixed household gatherings from 1am to 6am.

Local official Mariano Juan appealed for “outside help” after explaining that it was hard for police to infiltrate the parties because officers were known to locals.

He added that authorities are working with a private company to hire “foreigners between 30 and 40 years old” who can infiltrate the parties and then report back to police.

In other words, the government is hiring private snitch squads to grass people up for having fun in their own homes.

“The idea has… been heavily criticised by the Socialist party, which leads the regional administration covering Ibiza,” reports the Guardian. “A spokesperson, Vicent Torres, called on the island’s officials to put forth “serious proposals that have legal backing” rather than “acting irresponsibly by launching ideas that we cannot agree to.”

Draconian efforts to enforce coronavirus rules are still underway despite a recent ruling by Spain’s top court which concluded that the country’s lockdown was unconstitutional.

Spain’s lockdown was characterized by innumerable dystopian facets that confirmed it as one of the most brutal in Europe.

During the first six weeks of the lockdown, stay at home measures were so strict that Spaniards weren’t even allowed to go outside to exercise or walk their dogs.

In one case, police were called after a neighbor spotted two brothers playing soccer in their own back yard.

For many months during hot weather, wearing masks in every outdoor setting, even on beaches, was compulsory and authorities briefly told citizens that wearing masks while swimming in the sea was mandatory.

People were also issued fines of €2,000 euros for “disrespecting” a police officer during lockdown.

Numerous instances of police beating people for not wearing masks also emerged, while protesters at one point freed a woman from police arrest while cops were trying to handcuff her for not wearing a face covering.

Clarkson: “Communist” Government Advisors Want to Lock Us Down Forever

“It could be 40 years.”

British broadcaster Jeremy Clarkson has blasted “communist” government advisors who want to keep the population under lockdown forever.

Clarkson made the comments during an interview with the Radio Times.

“I think the politicians should sometimes tell those communists at Sage to get back in their box,” he said. “Let’s just all go through life with our fingers crossed and a smile on our face. I can see Boris doesn’t want to open it up and shut us back down again. But if it’s going to be four years … and who knows, it could be 40 years.”

The former Top Gear presenter then made clear that the cost of freedom is the inevitable risk of death.

“Well, if it’s going to be for ever, let’s open it up and if you die, you die,” he said.

While some COVID restrictions in England were lifted on July 19, foreign travel is still perilous and people are still being forced to self-isolate as well as having to wear masks in some settings.

Clarkson was immediately accused of being “boorish and insensitive” by the Guardian over the comments, despite the fact that he was infected with COVID and recovered from it last Christmas.

The broadcaster’s reference to “communist” government advisors is undoubtedly a reference to SAGE advisor Susan Michie, the proud Communist Party member who is so hardcore she earned the nickname “Stalin’s nanny.”

During a television appearance on Channel 4, Michie was asked how long mask mandates and social distancing should go on for, to which she responded, “forever.”

After being subsequently challenged on the subject of if her lifetime membership of the Communist Party informed her beliefs, Michie completely failed to answer the question.

An irate Twitter mob then leapt to her defense, claiming that the male host merely asking the question of Michie was a misogynistic attack.

As we previously highlighted, the question of how long coronavirus restrictions will remain in place was put to Iceland’s chief epidemiologist, who responded in the affirmative that the rules could be in effect for up to fifteen years.
