The fearless source of news, opinion, and activism that you won't find anywhere else.
A report from the Independent states that despite analyzing some 685,243 samples since the first week of January, Public Health England has not found a single case of influenza. The week leading up to the New Year returned one positive result.

Have you been vaccinated?
Here in the UK, even though we do have a bumbling government and Brexit is a reality the vaccination program is going extremely well. It's great to see my vulnerable and older friends getting their jabs, and hopefully I'm not too far away in the queue. Sadly, it seems that the EU are not having the same success..

Costing a reported £66.7 million, the hospital opened on 16 April as part of a Government effort to boost NHS bed capacity. The hospital has 496 beds divided into four wards, which can rapidly increase to 800 beds if needed. The emergency facility, constructed inside the National Exhibition Centre in Solihull, has a maximum capacity of 4,000 beds.
However, despite expecting to receive its first patients in mid-April, the hospital hadn’t received any patients as of 8 December. “No patients have been admitted to the hospital because the additional capacity has not yet been required,” said Edward Agar, Minister of State for Health, in response to a written Parliamentary question from Labour MP Matt Western. “However, the hospital remains on standby ready to play whatever role is needed in the months to come.”
During the first wave of the Coronavirus pandemic, in March this year, a number of Nightingale hospitals were rapidly constructed across the UK to provide backup capacity and relieve pressure on the NHS. “The Nightingale hospitals will rightly go down as landmarks in the history of the NHS,” Prince William said, when opening the centre in Birmingham.
By September, seven Nightingale hospitals had been constructed across the country, with a total cost of £220 million, though few have been used during the pandemic. In May, London’s Nightingale facility was mothballed after treating just 54 patients.
It has been noted that although the hospitals increased bed capacity, the NHS lacked the resources – namely staff – to make use of them. The website NursingNotes, for example, highlights that there are currently 43,000 nursing vacancies in England alone. “Why do we allow politicians to gaslight us into thinking that we can just put some prefabricated units together and call it a hospital?” Anthony Johnson, lead organiser for the grassroots group Nurses United UK told the website. “To have a hospital you need staff.”
Ultimately, the beds also haven’t been used because other NHS facilities have been able to cope with the number of patients – despite the UK suffering one of the worst outbreaks of the disease in Europe.
That’s why, when the London Nightingale announced it was going into standby, Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said: “It’s absolutely fantastic for the nation that we haven’t had to fill up a 4,000-bed hospital with people with coronavirus. It’s good.”
However, there are obvious questions around value for money and the effective deployment of resources – two nagging issues that have plagued the Government’s response to COVID-19.

Windfarms in Great Britain break record for clean power generation
Forty per cent of Friday’s electricity was generated in windfarms thanks to blustery winter weather
Blustery winter weather helped Great Britain’s windfarms set a record for clean power generation, which made up more than 40% of its electricity on Friday.
Wind turbines generated 17.3GW on Friday afternoon, according to figures from the electricity system operator, narrowly beating the previous record set in early January this year.

MASKS OFF AMERICA!!!
So, I finally have enough people in my region who are trying to unite against the lockdown orders and mask mandates. Many of them did not realize what had been going on throughout Europe for the past few months that has now reached Canada and soon will reach Australia as of next weekend.
What I am referring to is the worldwide movement to end the coronavirus restrictions and reopen the global economy. I was fortunate enough to have watched this movement grow from its infancy into what it has become today.
I seek to help the people of America join this growing movement against tyranny and injustice by all means within my power, so I ask of you all to kindly spread the word about my new group on MeWe. Also, please feel free to join if you would like to share your experience in the fight to restore justice to the people! We need experienced activists in this fight from all regions to help encourage and positively motivate the members of this group as well.
So whether you have been fighting against the lockdowns and mandates in Europe, whether you are in Canada where the protests have only just begun, whether you are in Australia where they are scheduled to begin next week, or if you are in America where the people are still struggling to form group cohesion and you want to take part in this historic movement to reopen the global economy and remove the unlawful restrictions imposed by the crooked politicians: you are all welcome to jointhe group. Remember, as they said: we're all in this together! 😁 😁 😁
