This Is Perfectly Normal....

'Secret payments to public figures to push government policy'? 

You say that like it's a bad thing!

Government ministers paid £63,000 to 42 social media 'influencers' to promote the NHS Test and Trace service, it has been revealed.

The ad campaign, launched last year, saw celebrities including Love Island stars Shaughna Phillips and Josh Denzel share messages of support for the health service and its coronavirus testing system on platforms such as Instagram.

If the Government isn't up to something dodgy, it's sure in first place for the 'Best Impression of People Up To No Good' Award. 

Don't expect the MSM to object though - or if they do, it'll be just because they thought they had the monopoly on fanboying over authoritarian creeps.

And, yes, this guy is just one more of them telling us to barricade ourselves in the house to stop the vampires getting in, then going for a moonlight stroll.

They Took A Knee...Right In The Nuts

Who says Sir Keir lacks the common touch? 

Labour today piled more pressure on Boris Johnson to shut down professional football after players flouted Covid-19 rules again and were accused of losing the 'moral case' to continue as infections rise and the NHS struggles to cope.

Yep, that will certainly win back those lost voters: demanding Lockdown Xtreme while making sure there's nothing to watch on the TV too. 

At risk of stating the obvious, given the insane amounts of money clubs pay to secure their player's services, the average Premiership training ground may be the safest place in the country. No one's going to pay forty million for a young starlet then not do everything they can to reduce the risk of losing him for six months to Chinese Lung AIDS. 

Hey, at least the training grounds are a lot safer than certain places I could mention. Someone should ask Sir Snooty about that.

I guess the player's union needs to start making those big donations to Labour. Kickback enough cash to Labour and not even killing people is enough to derail the gravy train (if only there was a well known former prosecutor the media could ask about that case). 

Of course that does raise the other point. Professional football has spent months literally bending the knee to the left. They fed the crocodile on filet mignon and now they're under the team bus. 

Shockingly, it turns out liberals are prepared to fill acres of newsprint hailing the courage of millionaires who denounce guys working the evening shift in Krap-e-mart for their white privilege but when push comes to shove, the essential rule of dealing with liberals is the same as it ever was: you can get in bed with the left but they won't respect you in the morning.

Today's 'Conspiracy Theory' Come True...

Hey, remember how people used to say that the liberals would hijack the 'Prevent' program to harass conservatives and the left said they were crazy? 

Eton College reported its dismissed Master to the anti-terrorism Prevent programme for allegedly advocating male supremacy and the glorification of violence.

The elite £42,500-a-year public school reported their concerns to their local authority over teacher Will Knowland's lecture.

School chiefs dismissed Mr Knowland after he refused to take down an online lecture tackling radical feminism and the concept of 'toxic masculinity' from his personal YouTube channel. 

Who knows? Maybe they were genuinely worried that he might be plotting to....what exactly? 

Make a really sarcastic video? Include a sock puppet called 'Ms Feminazi'? Or even escalate to doing a livestream?

The contrast with the treatment of the Manchester Arena bomber is striking.

As with much else in modern life, we're being asked to accept that there are two classes of people in the world. Our speech is violence but their actual violence is treated as all but a particularly colorful rhetorical flourish. 

A system that explicitly designates a large chunk of the population as an underclass deserves no respect. Hence why I refuse to be outrageously outraged by events in Washington right now.

She Didn't Win

Hey, I'm not saying this isn't good news, but like Ace says, how did we ever get to the point that judges were required to specifically rule that people's free speech rights include the right to not participate in a mentally-ill man's Gender Cosplay Fantasies?

Who voted for that?

This is a classic case of the process being the punishment. This case has been going on since 2018. I mean, it's great that the courts finally ruled the right way, but it's not like she even got a nice trophy or a winner's rosette. She's had two years of official harassment and now she's won the right not to be harassed anymore. 

Meanwhile, who lost?

Not the professional activist weirdo who wages lawfare on his critics

Not the police officers who routinely ignore actual crimes but decided to pursue this lunacy.

Not the prosecutors who ran with a completely ludicrous interpretation of the law.

Not even the judge who acted as though she was a philosopher queen unconstrained by your Earthling laws:
In February this year radical feminist Miss Scottow, 40, was handed a two-year conditional discharge, and ordered to pay £1,000 compensation, with district judge Margaret Dodds telling her: 'Your comments contributed nothing to a debate. We teach children to be kind to each other and not to call each other names in the playground.'
At risk of stating the obvious, there's nothing in the law about being'kind' and no requirement for any comments to contribute to a debate - otherwise Owen Jones would be on Death Row. 

It's not a small thing when a judge invents an absurd standard out of thin air to close down debate. A judge who makes the law up as they go along is like an accountant with his hand in the till. If calling a fat guy in a bad wig 'he' is worth £1,000, how much should an activist judge be fined?

Failure Is Not An Option - It's An Opportunity.

Say, did someone say conspiracy theories keep coming true?

At this point, I'm pretty sure that if Godzilla attacked Brighton then the Covid Cultists would cite it as a reason for even tighter mask mandates. 

No, there's no reason why a giant monster should be deterred by people wearing face nappies, but at least we don't have ever-increasing numbers of monster attacks running in parallel to ever-tightening mask mandates so, you know.... wearing Anti-Monster Cloths is still more scientific than anything these Covid Cult has come up with. 

Meanwhile, back in the (increasingly less) real world, it turns out the utter failure of Boris Burkhas to achieve much of anything means we need moar burkas!
Wearing a face mask while shopping for Christmas presents may slow the spread of coronavirus scientists say. 
Current rules only require the coverings to be worn inside shops, with many quickly ripping them off as soon as they step back outside. 
But leading experts have now urged Brits to keep their masks on in crowded outdoor spaces, such as packed high streets.
'Experts' is doing a lot of work here. 

Seriously:
Professor Melinda Mills, a sociologist also at Oxford University, added that Briton was an outlier in insisting masks should only be worn inside - and not outside in public.
'When we looked at the data in June, there were 71 countries who required everyone in public to be masked,' she said.
It's the science of sociology, you guys. If only there was a branch of mathematics which could allow us to look at how infection rates vary between countries with different rules!

I'm sure she might have mentioned the possibility of checking this out but she had to rush off as she's got some time booked on the new 8 Trillion Watt laser in the Sociology Labs. 

Isn't that just special though? These people have spent months telling us tO lISTEN tO tHE eXPERTS. Meanwhile, when it comes to tightening the noose everyone's an expert. Hence the appeal of the Church of Covid - simply adopt their absurd mantras (as propagated by the Government, huge corporations and 90% of the media) and you too can be hailed as a fearless warrior for the public good.
