Swine flu - the BBC does all it can to calm the situation



As the EU 'warns against swine flu panic', the BBC is doing its bit for Queen and Country by regularly updating its terror inducer, and showing advertisements like that above.

The state broadcaster is a mine of pig flu information, with helpful tabs for the latest news, Q&A, an Outbreak Map, a breakdown by country, the UK situation, and calming, non-panicky pictures.

No-one in the UK died today of pig flu.

But eight people died in road traffic accidents.

Man's life's as cheap as beasts.

6.3 million people die from smoking each year, and they sell cigs in the shop. Which gives me an idea for raising revenue...Pig Flu Tax...PAG!

Go on the London tube.

Speak loudly into your mobile phone about the wonderful holiday you just had in Cancun.

Sneeze a few times.

Say "Sorry" to those standing near you, whilst coughing and sneezing.

See how quickly the carriage empties at the next stop.

Priceless - what sad gimps we have become.

I can only conclude that his Grace is stirring the pot.

"EU Health Commissioner Androulla Vassiliou has said a possible swine flu global epidemic, or pandemic, would not necessarily cause widespread deaths.

She said Europe was well prepared and there was there was "no need to panic".

this was one of the BBC's most prominent newsstories. Scaremongering? Hardly. interesting to note that the EU is on the same line as his Grace.

Irrespective, in the last 100 yrs at least 150,000 000 People have died as a result of the Elites. Either through War or deliberate policies of Genocide.
To them, we are cattle, think about it, although we do all the work, the wealth flows ever upwards into fewer and fewer Vaults.
What do they do except conspire with their Puppets in Govts to make this process more and more efficient.
The Ultimate aim being to create a Two race Neofuedalistic system, the Elites, and the rest if us.
They even believe they can make it even more 'lucrative' by having us live in absolute squalor, we will of love our situation because of the drugs we are to be fed.
How many people are on antidepressants nowadays.
Look at what is going on in Africa and the Mid east, Millions dying while we in the west plunder their lands.
To the elites Depopulation in Africa is simply business decision, as the Africans have this outrageous idea that they ought to benefit form their Vast OIl and mineral wealth.
similarly in the Mid East, Illlegal wars fought for Oil.
Look at the EU actively exterminating Indigenous white Europeans as they set up their EUSSR Empire.

Your grace, in your first incarnation you may have had the power to award medical degrees, but things have moved on a little since then. I desperately hope and pray that all of those who write and blog about the apparent disproportionate response to the re-emergence of Influenza A (H1N1) are proved right over the next few weeks and months. It is, however, worth recalling that the Spanish Flue epidemic in 1918-1919 was caused by H1N1. That did have a certain impact. A good start to re-learning about the impact might be to reread the final chapters of "Goodbye to all that".

This is the first time when a potential pandemic has emerged when the knowledge and technology has been available to ameliorate the potential spread of that pandemic if not to contain it. let us pray that a) those attempts are successful and b) that the strain does not mutate from the apparently mild virulence it now exhibits to something more like N1H1 in 1918. It started as a mild strain. By this time next year we will know.

From David Lonsdale

To the Commissars in Whitehall, Swine flu must have come as a blessing. Just as all eyes are focussd on Brown and his incompetent government, Swine Flu comes along to distract the masses.

It is not surprising that the Marxists at the BBC should attempt to distract the people away from their friend at Number 10.

Where the BBC are involved, it is best to look behind the news to understand what they are up to.

The fear of an epidemic is deep in our consciousness. We learnt of the Black death at school. Smallpox is still in living memory.

And if that doesn't work then a whole series of outbreak/zombie movies get the message across.

People should be anxious, just as you would be on the edge of a cliff. If your instincts kicking into survival mode. Whilst uncontrolled panic is clearly bad, a bit of preparation would be very useful. EG

1) Hold 2 Weeks food supplies in house ( its not hoarding at someone else's expense yet as what your providing is the storage that used to be in our food supply chain). It could help the super market shelves not to empty when real panic sets in, as they have in Mexico.

2) Catch those sneezes and get into the habit of washing your hands more.

3) Avoid public places if the number of cases starts to rise. ( Do what you may have to do over the next few months now ).

Its not the few deaths or odd case that are the worry. Its people you can recognise being loaded onto railway sleepers sitting on coal beds then burnt as the capability to bury or cremate becomes over whelmed.

To avoid that possibility we would need to slow any epidemic down and that would be greatly helped by people getting themselves ready now.

Perhaps we'll step back and be able to laugh at all this (and in particular those of us who sound warnings), but the opportunity for action is mostly before we know the outcome.

Let's re-cap, We've had Mad cow disease, bird flu, swine flu & genetically modified crops (with probably some fungi flu or something still to come from it), we know that at least one of these was caused by feeding herbivores ground meat, other diseases were attributed to government labs & experiments with viruses, human beings in Poland have died from experiments they didn't agree to. This all reads like a mix Pandoras box & the Nazi concentration camp experiments.
On their own these things could be viewed as evil scientists practising their twisted ideas on an unsuspecting populace, but one gets the gut feeling that there is a sinister sub plot somewhere that connects it all. Well as the man said " just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're NOT out to get you".
Anyway I'm off to get a bottle of medicinal Scotch & a packet of hopefully uncontaminated Lemsip, just in case. Bless you All.

Never mind 'Porcine Pestilence' .. this morning's radio said we should call it H1N1 - to minimize repercussions on the Pig Industry. Beats me how we in the idiot population are supposed to remember anything so un-picturesqe. Still, it's nice to know our officials care about the bad names people give to animals.

I see that Mr. Woolman above complies; and am fascinated that 'they' say this is the 1914/18 'flu. Perhaps that's the 'bird 'flu' component of this interestingly engineered virus? They gave the last Panic a number too...

I thought they said, also, that the total deaths worldwide were in the twenties. Wow. I'd better start home-schooling the children.

A couple of posts above put me in mind of Chaucer's "Pardoner's Tale"! That's where the Black Death cart comes around to collect bodies, and three carousers in a pub decide to hunt out Death - and kill him...

I suppose it's hard for moderns to realize that people could have such ideas - so long ago. What I find hard to credit is that six hundred years later we haven't even killed colds and 'flu!!

Technology and knowledge indeed - Why don't most modern people even know about hygiene: wash hands; use a handkerchief; don't spit; stay home and don't spread it? And how about disinfecting 'phones between users? Or cleaning up some of those filthy computer keyboards? But they don't have time or energy to practice even old-fashioned cleanliness - not judging by the flats and rental houses I've seen...

Furthermore, the Pardoner and his three characters are dead ringers for every con man I ever saw in business or politics.... Oh my!! How far we haven't advanced.

If you think the BBC's sneeze in the lift clip is unduly scary, have you seen this week's Economist?

There he is, Mr. Petram!!
Some people think he's awfully like the person the 3 lads met --------
Whan they han goon nat fully half a mile,
Right as they wolde han troden over a stile,
An oold man and a povre with hem mette.
This olde man ful mekely hem grette,
And seyde thus, "Now, lordes, God yow see!"
The proudeste of thise riotoures three
Answerde agayn, "What, carl, with sory grace!
Why artow al forwrapped save thy face?
Why lyvestow so longe in so greet age?
This olde man gan looke in his visage,
And seyde thus: "For I ne kan nat fynde
A man, though that I walked into Ynde,
Neither in citee ne in no village,
That wolde chaunge his youthe for myn age;
And therfore moot I han myn age stille,
As longe tyme as it is Goddes wille.
Ne Deeth, allas, ne wol nat han my lyf. ...
(The Pardoner's Tale, 711-727)
