Poll: “Significant Proportion of Brits” Say They Have Enjoyed Lockdown

They love their servitude.

A new poll by the Sunday Times finds that a “significant proportion of Brits” say they have enjoyed lockdown, with younger people more likely to say they liked COVID-19 restrictions.

They survey gave respondents a range of answers to measure their like or dislike for lockdown. Over 16 per cent in total said they liked or strongly liked lockdown.

The figures are even more alarming when it comes to young people. 20 per cent of 18-24 year olds said they liked or strongly liked the lockdown, while 22 per cent of 25-34 year olds said the same.

An online poll even found that a majority of respondents say they enjoyed lockdown.

A separate opinion poll conducted last month by YouGov found that over half of Brits said they would miss “many” or “some” aspects of the lockdown.

Public opinion surveys also routinely find vehement support for the lockdown in general, with large numbers believing that it hasn’t been strict enough.

The figures are obviously deeply concerning in that they illustrate how compliant people have become in the face of the most authoritarian restrictions on freedom since World War 2.

However, pro-lockdown sentiment is also undeniably driven by the fact that the government has covered 80% of people’s wages via a furlough scheme that has given many endless hours of free leisure time.

Aldous Huxley’s quote on how people would be trained to love their servitude seems particularly apt.

“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude,” wrote Huxley.

“The perfect dictatorship would have the appearance of a democracy, but would basically be a prison without walls in which the prisoners would not even dream of escaping. It would essentially be a system of slavery where, through consumption and entertainment, the slaves would love their servitudes,” he also warned.

The UK is only destined to exit lockdown on June 21, when all restrictions are supposed to be lifted, although given that the government has shifted the goalposts so many times, there is widespread skepticism about whether or not this target will be met.

Congressional Report Questions “Unusual” Activity At Wuhan Lab Involving “Air Disinfection, Hazardous Waste Systems”

The lab looked into renovating key safety systems just two years after becoming operational, but it is unclear if any work was carried out

A new Congressional report into the origins of COVID-19 points to “unusual” activity at the Wuhan National Biosafety Lab involving air disinfection and hazardous waste systems, prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

The report by Republicans on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, obtained by Fox News, highlights how the lab in Wuhan requested bids for ‘major renovations’ to air safety and waste treatment systems in the facilities, just two years after they became operational.

The report notes that “Such a significant renovation so soon after the facility began operation appears unusual,” and that it “raise[s] questions about how well these systems were functioning in the months prior to the outbreak of COVID-19.” 

The report notes that it is unknown if any renovation work was ever carried out.

The findings will be presented in Congress this week where the Republicans will make the case that “the preponderance of evidence suggests SARS-CoV-2 was accidentally released from a Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory.” 

Republicans will also present further evidence that the virus was genetically manipulated in the lab, according to the report.

The Republicans have built a case around a timeline that indicates the virus escaped the lab “sometime prior to September 12, 2019.” 

At this time there is a record of activity such as the WIV’s viral sequence database disappearing from the internet, and the institute ramping up security.

The report notes that after lab workers became sick in November 2019 Major General Chen Wei, an expert in biology and chemical weapon defenses, took control of the Wuhan Institute’s biosafety level-4 lab.

The report suggests that this shows the Communist government “was concerned about the activity happening there as news of the virus was spreading.”

“If she took control in 2019, it would mean the CCP knew about the virus earlier, and that the outbreak began earlier,” the report states.

Video: WH Deputy Press Secretary Says Americans Must Follow CDC Orders ‘Because The Experts Say So’

Has literally no idea when asked how CDC is testing for the so called Delta variant

Published

With the CDC announcing a mask mandate reversal and the endless doom mongering over the dreaded Delta variant, Americans have a lot of questions, yet the answer to all of them seems to simply be ‘do as you’re told because we say so’.

This was in evidence again on Friday when after the announcement that even vaccinated people can still get and transmit the Delta variant, Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson asked the White House Principal Deputy Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre what exactly the CDC is doing to test for this.

Jean-Pierre had no idea and didn’t even bother to suggest she would try to find out.

She claimed she didn’t even know why anyone would ask how the CDC tests for the Delta variant or why they would bother to explain the process.

Robinson pointed out that the only answers Americans are being given is “because they say so,” to which the Deputy Press Secretary answered “because they are the experts.”

As we noted last week, Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s answer to the question “If vaccines work, then why do people who have the vaccine now need to wear masks?” was essentially ‘because we say so’.

After admitting that he is seeking to determine whether he can mandate vaccines for all Americans, Joe Biden lost it with reporter Peter Doocy, who again dared to ask for an explanation on the flip-flop on masks.

Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, are literally repeating the stock phrase ‘it’s science’ over and over without explaining any of the method behind it, because they literally have no idea what it is.
