Dear readers I hope that you are OK and keeping safe.
The government is yet again relaxing the social distancing rules whilst the mortality and R rates are rising.
Whilst I know that its so tempting to go out and meet people I urge you to use caution. Covid 19 is still here as much as it was when lockdown started.
There’s probably a few reasons why the government is easing lockdown. The main one being that they want people to start working again, for the wheels of commerce to roll as before.
Don’t be fooled into thinking that they care about you, that they want you to be safe. They don’t, they don’t care one bit.
Now let’s look at the real person that’s advising Johnson. Dominic Cummings is the person behind each and every decision that Johnson makes.
At the beginning of the pandemic he put forward his herd immunity plans, stating that if the weakest die it wouldn’t be a bad thing.
Of course Johnson was forced to officially stop the herd immunity plans but its obvious that they’re still implementing this. They aren’t even bothering to hide it either.
It’s herd immunity by stealth and in plain sight.
Please keep to the social distancing rules if you value your health.
Of course if you’re forced back into work you won’t have a choice. My thoughts are with you all.
Take it from me Covid 19 is an awful virus, my experience has been awful.
You see whilst some people can get an extremely mild dose many of us don’t.
The side effects of contracting Covid 19 can and often do last for months after.
Please read my previous blogs to catch up with my personal battle against Covid 19.
As I write this blog I’m still not feeling 100%. After finishing my third lot of antibiotics I’ve been feeling the pains that I had before returning.
I’m keeping my eye on it and if I get any worse I’ll have to attend either the Covid clinic or hospital.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t have to.
The harsh DWP system and some of their operatives have no sympathy for anyone that were sanctioned before the lockdown started.
If a person was sanctioned before the lockdown started they are expected to continue with the sanction.
The DWP don’t give a stuff if you can’t afford to buy food and if you’re ill with Covid 19.
All sanctions must be completed. No leniency will be given.
However the DWP aren’t supposed to be issuing new sanctions during the lockdown period but you can bet that they’ll still try to do this
If you find yourself sanctioned for not being able to find work during the pandemic you must appeal this decision.
Here is a report of a man that found himself in this exact position. He contacted a newspaper and appealed their decision.
The result was that he won because it’s totally unreasonable to sanction anyone for not being able to find work during the pandemic.
Like I always say its your legal right to appeal these decisions. Help is out there for you to do this.
One more thing, something else that has really annoyed me this week is that some people still don’t recognise the fact that not everyone has access to the Internet.
Thousands of people don’t have smart phones, computers or tablets and Internet access at home.
Earlier this week I was having a discussion about being isolated at home and being totally alone if you catch Covid 19.
Whilst there are some really good Facebook groups and some amazing community groups they aren’t accessible to all people.
Being alone and being extremely ill with covid 19 is a massive problem. People are being found dead in their homes because they haven’t had the means to contact anyone for help.
If I didn’t have my daughter, my friends and a phone to use it might have been a very different outcome for me.
Not everyone wants to join in with local community groups. This can be for various reasons and we need to respect them.
Please keep an eye out for your neighbours and if you are worried about them ask the police to do a welfare check.
Once again I hope that you are all keeping safe and each and every one of you are in my thoughts.
I’m still plodding on trying to get better.
I’ve come to the conclusion that if I relapse so be it but I hope that I don’t. If I do I’ll get help once again but I do know that many can’t.
Please keep safe and I’ll be back next week, maybe earlier.
Please read, share, tweet and email my blog. We need to continue to get the truth out there.
A huge thank you to everyone that has and does support my blog and campaign.
