FORMED during the latter half of 2022, the UK Commission on Covid Commemoration are tasked by the government with setting out how, as a nation, we should remember the pandemic, and commemorate its victims and heroes in the future.
Collating ideas harvested from a public consultation to which fewer than 5,000 people bothered to respond, they are expected to present their final recommendations to the Government next month.
Up for consideration are such predictable ideas as the adoption of a symbol, a commemorative website, and various memorials and reflective spaces.
However, the most unsettling issue to be addressed by the commission is how we teach future generations about the pandemic. Considering the government’s total lack of remorse over inflicting multiple experimental and torturous lockdowns, and their continued total disdain for the vaccine-injured or dead, it appears certain (unsurprisingly) that the official flag-waving narrative of having triumphantly vanquished a sadistic invader will be upheld long, long into the future.
The chair of the Commission, former Conservative Cabinet Minister, now Baroness, Nicky Morgan, proposes that not only should the dead be commemorated, but likewise the myriad sacrifices made by the public to help keep the country running at that time.
That all the vainglorious workers for or on behalf of the government so frequently bandy about that word ‘sacrifice’ when it comes to recalling the collective travails of the pandemic is mocking in the extreme.
Making a sacrifice means willingly giving up something for the sake of something else one considers more important, but when an external actor demands that thing be sacrificed (self-governance and essential personal freedoms in the case of the pandemic) lest one face criminal charges, or social ostracism, it is simply despotism.
Moreover it is grossly hypocritical. Not only were these public sacrifices secured on the basis of a false prospectus, but in many cases on the basis of bribery too, in the form of furlough payments and so-called ‘bounce-back loans’.
Via their refusal to treat the virus with proven safe, effective and affordable therapeutics; via their reckless closure of the country’s economy; via their repeated, unnecessary, isolating and fear-inducing stay-at-home orders; via their both barbarous and irrational care-home and NHS health and safety policies; via their callous disregard for the wellbeing of children; via their brazen censorship of journalistic and broadcast content; and finally via their rollout of a highly questionable ‘vaccine’, the government in fact executed a lethal attack on a predominantly healthy population.
The ultimate prize of this State expansionism was our minds: to win public consent, by stealth, for the impending engineered hardships of the new ultra-elites’ ‘Great Reset’, new-normal era – the Fourth Industrial Revolution, for want of a better label – they needed to make us fear each other. They succeeded.
Hence the deliberate engendering of panic which flew in the face of the pandemic preparedness strategy already in place. Not even in the event of the spread of a virus with a fatality rate many magnitudes higher than that of Covid-19 had such an approach been advised. ‘During a pandemic, the Government will encourage those who are well to carry on with their normal daily lives,’ the former strategy stated.
As if this egregious public-health volte-face was not subterfuge enough, the UK Commission on Covid Commemoration appear poised to recommend it be written into the history books as an era of national courage comparable to World War II rather than the unwarranted campaign of domestic terror that it was, burying the truth perhaps for ever.
That future generations will be taught that lockdowns, and all the collateral havoc they wreak, were wholly necessary, and that it was the vaccine that ultimately set us free, is truly Orwellian when all evidence remains to the contrary. The doublethink here is a crime in itself.
Will the nearly half a million vaccine injured and the nearly two and half thousand vaccine dead (that figure officially acknowledged and likely to be a mere 10 per cent of the true number) be given a corner of this monument? Will there be a wall dedicated to them, documenting their faces, names and stories?
Will there be a plaque to the 40,000 care workers sacked because they asserted their medical right not to be vaccinated and to all those student nurses railroaded into vaccination to get on their courses?
Will there be a reflection area on the perils of censorship and suppression of free speech for the pursuit of rational science and medicine? Will there be an ‘apology’ hall to the thousands of children denied their education, freedom to do sport and play for two years?
Will there be a central platform dedicated to the two principles of ‘first do no harm’ and of ‘informed consent’?
That, Baroness Morgan, is what is needed. There is no victory to commemorate, only a crime against humanity to record with a museum dedicated to it. A Topography of Britain’s Covid Terror.
