Sheep, Wolves, and freedom for all Brits or just the Elites?
Candida’s Rant - Are you a sheep or a Wolf?
The UK is divided into two groups, the sheep who blindly comply regardless of scientific data, lying politicians and good old common sense. And the Wolves who question everything, believe only their own research, refuse to wear a mask, be vaccinated and are prepared to fight for freedom.
Wolves are massively outnumbered by sheep but the good news is the majority of the compliant are so lackadaisical, so zombie-like that they offer no resistance to anything, whereas the awake are brave, fearless and ready to shout about it.
You may have heard about our Health Minister, Matt Hancock, recently having to resign from that position as he was caught on camera doing exactly what he was preaching to the country not to do. Getting up close and personal with an aide – no social distancing for him, not to mention he’s a married man with 3 children. Reprehensible. It was a wake-up call for some people who are beginning to see that those in a position of power do what they like but punish the masses for stepping out of line.
Our new Health Minister has often spoken of the rights of the individual in the past so we can only hope he doesn’t abandon his political ideologies as Boris Johnson has. I’m not particularly hopeful but he can’t be worse than Hancock whose authoritarian fixation with rules and restrictions had become ungoverned and idiotic.
Thousands of school children are still being sent home to isolate despite the rate of testing positive being as low as 4%. It’s ludicrous to me that Wimbledon has gone ahead with its crowds, the horse racing has seen literally thousands mingling mask free and of course the Euro Football Championship which has seen every possible restriction lifted (even travel) Don’t get me wrong, I am delighted these things have gone ahead but what makes them more important that a child’s education, a child’s induction day at their new school, a 16 year old’s prom? The answer is – nothing. They are less important but more lucrative. It always comes down to money.
Our latest cry for freedom was a protest march in London on June 26th. We were a million strong if not more and we marched to Downing Street where the Prime Minister resides and peacefully made our voices heard. Many took tennis balls inked with a message they cared about and these were tossed over the gate. No one was hurt, it was really quite joyous. Our protests have never been reported on main stream media, other than a mention of arrests that may have happened long after the march is finished and were more to do with being drunk and disorderly in a park than any protest. Thankfully we have a new news channel who is choosing to show footage and to describe it accurately (the BBC will give us a cursory mention but always in a negative light). The BBC is not to be trusted, I stopped watching their news coverage early on in the scamdemic.
You have a similar divide in the US but it’s the Democrats and the Republicans. It feels like the Republicans are the Wolves. I’ve seen over and over again that right wing states such as Florida and Texas are the least likely to lock down or enforce mandates that affect civil liberties. As luck would have it, those are two of the states I have personal experience with. I spent some time in California too and have to say I loved it, but that was the 90’s and times have changed and right now I think their reactionary, liberal approach to covid would drive me nuts! Teachers protesting to keep schools closed! This is madness – child abuse. And they call the anti vaxxers selfish.
I’m interested to see what will happen if Trump announces he will run again, I know he has a lot of support but over here it’s as if anyone who would vote for him must be mad - have they seen Biden???
Well our Freedom Day approaches, restrictions lifted on the 19th of July, the return of our rights. Except for international travel, and maybe masks on transport, and we recommend you do still wear them indoors, and let’s keep contact tracing going - oh and we reserve the right to take those rights away again any time we please!
