Further to our PREVIOUS POSTING where we discussed (among much more) how our Civil Liberties/Rights/Freedoms are all being eroded by some of the most dodgy, and dangerous, legislation ever to have passed in our parliament because of so-called COVID-19.
We have been asking just how many people have "really" died of this disease, how dangerous is it "really?" The official local (death) figures for the last three years tell us that, so far, the amount of deaths this year are average (if not less than) the last three years.
Last Tuesday (12th May 2020) Deputy Mike Higgins (video below) asked the following question of the Health Minister Deputy Richard Renouf:
"Given that there are currently 12 “presumptive deaths” amongst the 24 people reported to have died from Covid-19 in Jersey, will the Minister advise members what steps, if any, are being taken to determine conclusively the cause of death of these 12 ‘presumptive’ victims and, furthermore, to ensure that, in future, any deaths from Covid-19 are accurately and conclusively determined?"
Readers/viewers will have to make up their own minds as to whether the Health Minister's "answers" (video below) were convincing or reassuring? From our perspective he was blindly parroting the official guidelines which (from our perspective again) read that if a doctor presumes the patient died of COVID-19 then that's good enough for the death certificate.
The island is in huge fear and the public are willingly having their civil freedoms, and rights, stripped from them on a balance of probabilities and this is scary stuff. Scary that the public (for the most part) are so willing to be stripped of their rights and scary because "The Powers That be" (the Attorney General's Office) are stripping us of them.
For the avoidance of doubt we are NOT claiming that covid-19 doesn't exist. We are NOT claiming that it doesn't kill people. We are NOT saying that everybody should ignore the suggested guidelines to help curtail the disease.
What we do advocate is that people do their own research and don't blindly believe what you are told by the Old Media (formerly known as MSM), The government or so-called "experts." They are all proven liars. That's not to say they are lying about EVERYTHING to do with COVID-19 it's just stating a fact. Does the "official line" stack up? Do we, or our loved ones, not deserve something better than a "probable" cause of death?
Don't we deserve to know "exactly" how many people this illness has killed before we give up all our rights and freedoms so willingly?
It should also be noted that I am inundated with private messages on Facebook/Twitter/emails and texts by people who do not believe the official line surrounding COVID-19 but are in fear of speaking up/out. The fact that the Jersey "Culture of Fear" is still so prevalent is another alarming factor to have arisen from this crisis.
