Pathetic police attempted to raid a CLOSED gym in London after they received reports that people were still using it. Now the owner is vowing to take legal action after it emerged that only he was inside.

Under draconian lockdown restrictions, gyms have all had to close for a second time in the UK, so James Cooper, who owns Body Transformation in Hampstead, north London was the only person using the facilities.

He was amazed when he looked remotely at the security cameras and saw that police had showed up outside and attempted to gain entry for around one hour.

Footage from security cameras shows police banging on the door and trying to look inside. Eventually, one officer went around the back of the building and appeared to tamper with a key box secured to the gym wall.

Mr Cooper told the Daily Mail that he believes this was an attempt to gain access to his property without a warrant.

Watch:

Cooper says he will take the matter to court, telling reporters “The police made a very big mistake trying to break into my property.”

“I will be taking them to court over this, they messed with the wrong person, I’ve simply had enough of this,” Cooper, who trains several British celebrity clients, added.

“This is for all of us business owners fighting back now, we can’t take this nonsense any more,” he further urged.

“You can’t break into someone’s premises, no one was in danger inside, the place was empty, what right do they have to try and break in?” Cooper asked.

“I was at home watching them banging on my doors and trying to get in by getting access to my key box,” Cooper noted, adding “I can hear them saying they don’t have a warrant because my system records sound as well.”

“I’m just not going to put up with this any more,” Cooper asserted, adding “What has the world come to that seven officers spend an hour of their time standing around my gym?”

“Surely they have better things to do with their time in a big city like London,” Cooper said, noting that he “built that business from the ground up,” and isn’t going to let busybodies ruin it.

“I’ve put all my investment into my business and I’m not going to sit back and let them try to destroy it,” Cooper emphasised.

The London Metropolitan Police have not commented on the case at time of writing.

UK Authorities Could Force People to Take Selfie Every Day to ‘Prove’ They’re Self-Isolating

Failure to comply would result in police visit.

UK authorities are considering a new measure that would force people to send selfies every day to prove they’re self-isolating, photos which would then be cross-referenced using GPS data and facial-recognition software.

The Sunday Times reports that COVID lockdown officials are looking to mirror policies introduced in New Zealand, where all new arrivals to the country are forced to check in to a ‘quarantine hotel’ at the airport for a period of 2 weeks.

Another potential enforcement measure would be to copy Poland’s so-called “enhanced monitoring” system for those who are supposed to be self-isolating.

“Each person is contacted once a day and told to send a photograph of themselves at the location where they are confined,” states the report. “These are cross-referenced using GPS data and facial-recognition software. Those who fail to comply within 20 minutes receive a visit from police.”

It is not known whether the new measure would also apply to UK citizens returning to their own country.

The new policies are being considered in the name of preventing new ‘mutant’ strains of COVID-19 from spreading in the UK.

“Concerns that the pandemic response has been accompanied by a tendency towards China-style surveillance won’t be assuaged by these plans to require a digital ‘minder’ in the room at all times,” writes Conor Chaplin.

“If these variants are to be treated with such extreme caution now, for fear that the vaccines provide no immunity to them, how will normal travel ever resume, given that new strains are bound to keep emerging and vaccines can only be developed and manufactured so quickly?”

As we previously highlighted, the UK’s third national lockdown is being much more vigorously enforced, with police paying home visits to alleged lockdown flouters while also arresting people for sitting on benches.

Germany Set to Detain COVID Rulebreakers in Refugee Camps

AfD MP says authorities have been “reading too much Orwell.”

COVID lockdown rulebreakers in Germany will be arrested and detained in refugee camps located across the country, it has been revealed.

We first highlighted the story on Friday, citing reports that people who repeatedly flout the rules will be held in a ‘detention camp’ in Dresden.

Now authorities in numerous different areas have outlined where they will incarcerate those who break lockdown laws or refuse to self-isolate after catching COVID.

Germany has numerous refugee camps located throughout the country as a result of Angela Merkel’s disastrous move to let in millions of migrants from 2015 onwards.

Now areas of some of them are being repurposed to house dissidents who refuse to obey coronavirus lockdown laws.

“The eastern state of Saxony has confirmed plans to hold quarantine-flouters in a fenced-off section of a refugee camp set to be build next week,” reports the Daily Mail.

AfD MP Joana Cotar reacted to the plan by accusing authorities of “reading too much Orwell.” The state asserts it has the right to detain those who break quarantine under the Disease Protection Act.

Authorities in Brandenburg will also use a section of a refugee camp to intern COVID-deniers, while Schleswig-Holstein will lock them up in an area of a juvenile detention center.

Angela Merkel is reportedly set to announce a new “mega-lockdown” in Germany that will include shutting down all public transport.

French Workers Angrily Reject Social Distancing ‘Collars’

An “attack on individual liberty”

Published

Factory workers in France have labeled social distancing ‘dog collars’ as an “attack on individual liberty” as employers are trying to make them wear the devices to enforce restrictions while working.

The alarm devices emit a noise and light up if workers get closer than two metres together, but have been slammed by a worker’s union for “infantilising” employees.

The alarms are scheduled to be introduced by hygiene company Essity, which wants it’s factory workers to wear them around their necks.

The CFDT union told AFP that it is “a system comparable to ones that try to dissuade dogs from barking.”

Christine Duguet, a union representative from the CFDT, suggested that the devices will “finish in the rubbish bins or stay in a cupboard,” adding “This is complete nonsense.”

Duguet also expressed concerns that the company would attempt to keep the system in place as a ‘security measure’ even after the pandemic ends.

The device is manufactured by a Belgian company called Phi Data, which also offers a similar device that can be activated by the wearer if they feel someone comes too close to them.

Imagine that hell. Karens everywhere emitting bleeping blaring alarms if you dare to walk past them on the street.

Other similar devices have been developed by tech companies and researchers seeking to cash in on the pandemic panic:

There are also scores of videos on YouTube detailing how to make DIY versions of the devices:

This is not normal. What has happened to humans?

Where does this end up? Electronic collars that administer a shock if you break distancing restrictions?

Aside from the imprisonment of everyone inside pods, this weird technology is being embraced with the social distancing justification.

Amazon is reported to have experimented with such technology in their warehouses:

As we highlighted back in October, Hitachi has developed similar technology, which includes cartoon fish swimming around inside a bubble. When a person violates social distancing, the fish escape.

The promo video brags that the technology “can even be deployed inside elevators” and Hitachi is “hoping to get the technology commercialized quickly.”

Given that numerous prominent people are insisting that social distancing and other coronavirus restrictions are here to say, it’s perfectly feasible to imagine a near future in which this technology is widely adopted.

China is already linking coronavirus rules to its onerous social credit score system, in addition to using AI to discipline its slave labor workforce, so the idea that people could be publicly shamed or punished for getting too close to others is a very real possibility.
