When the Chinavirus Comes Home to Roost
If you’re offended that I called it the Chinavirus, first of all it alliterates with ‘chicken’, the inspiration coming from the original Malcolm X quote. Secondly, and actually, please go and find it even more offensive that this virus has - despite all the disingenuous attacks on us “dangerous conspiracy theorists” - been shown by leaked DARPA documents to have been artificially enhanced and leaked from that lab in Wuhan, China. Now to the topic at hand:
1) PM Johnson faces a domestic palace coup in service of the global palace coup
The government with Prime Minister Johnson at its helm are on the run. Today, Christian Wakeford, who won Bury South for the Conservatives by 402 votes in 2019, symbolically crossed the floor in the House of Commons defecting to Labour.
To add to this, the cost of living is surging at the quickest pace in nearly three decades. The annual rate of inflation has jumped to 5.4% last month.
Johnson faces further crisis due to the anticipated 50 per cent rise in gas and electricity bills in April, and is facing calls to somehow soften the blow.
Tory whips have begun to be concerned that the number of letters of no confidence could exceed the threshold of 54 needed to trigger a leadership election. But even then, and short of resigning, the only way he leaves is by losing a secret vote of no-confidence held for all Tory MPS.
Johnson’s plea to wait for Sue Gray’s inquiry into party gate is being seen as increasingly irrelevant. Her inquiry may prove inconclusive.
This palace coup is likely to be inflamed by a new poll indicating that the Tories could lose all but three of the 45 red wall seats they won in 2019. This poll found that Labour had an 11-point lead across these seats, whereas in 2019 the Conservatives had a nine-point lead. David Davis MP today pleaded:
2) The Chinavirus has come home to roost.
There is no way around this. Johnson’s covid policies are mainly to blame. Most of the PM’s above woes can be pinned down to blowback from his utterly unprecedented (and totally absurd) Covid restrictions - unarguably the worst global curtailment of liberty in history. These were totally unnecessary to boot. UK public opinion turning against them is largely due to party gate - Johnson’s government repeatedly breaking lockdown rules while the rest of us couldn’t even attend our relatives’ funerals. Downing Street even had to apologise to the Queen.
By most sensible accounts, the surging inflation is largely due to the quantitative easing (money printing) needed to pay for our country’s unnecessary lockdown. This was supported by Sunak’s very costly furlough scheme, which are now all expected to pay for while the world’s billionaire’s got 54% richer.
Energy price hikes can also partly be blamed on a surge in demand as restrictions are easing, coupled with the need to restore costs for excess energy storage during lockdown itself.
And this is why, despite the World Health Organisation’s Covid chief David Nabarro warning the UK yesterday against abandoning our restrictions too quickly our Covid narrative collapse appears to be moving ahead at pace. The PM has even ditched pointless masks for England today, as Conservative MPs Steve Baker and Bob Seely criticised the government’s use of data modelling stoking fear during the pandemic.
Such is the speed of retreat that even ‘we demand more restrictions’ Labour are now pretending that they never demanded more restrictions.
3) Why is this domestic palace coup happening?
Those in our country who support the World Economic Forum’s synchronised global palace coup to turn liberal democracies into corporate technocracies appear to be in a full-swinged attempt at ousting Johnson. This is likely because he dithered for too long in the face of major public opposition to Covid mandates. In other words, the People threw a small spanner in their works.
Two things can happen now. Either Johnson holds on tight and stays, or he is replaced by a loyal acolyte of Klaus Schwab’s unhinged Great Reset agenda. Once in power, such an acolyte could continue on a path worse than what we have seen already.
The aim was never to improve our health. Just as Tony Blair’s Institute has been advocating, the aim was to bring in a digital ID system, linked to a central banking digital currency. Chancellor Sunak as already announced this:
This centralised digital ID would contain all our personal data. Coupled with a central banking digital currency that utilises vouchers that can be set to expire or only used on certain good, and we would end up with the Chinese style social credit system.
We are only at the beginning. And this is why caution is needed in ousting Johnson. He may not have much left in him, and he may indeed have become a liability. If so, there is little room for doubt: we are damned unless his replacement is a strong opponent of the global palace coup - the Great Reset.
4) Dominic Cummings
Among the PM’s main adversaries is his once former confidant and de facto chief of staff, Dominic Cummings. But one only need look Cummings’ rhetoric and views to notice some oddities. I met and worked with Cummings a few times when he was a Special Advisor to Michael Gove at the Department for Education between the years 2007-2014 (note: he has long been close to Michael Gove).
Cummings’ long standing critique of the machinery of government has been articulate, accurate and piercing. But what he wishes to replace it with veers towards the megalomaniacal. For all his rhetoric around the need for science, reason, technology and efficiency, Cummings’ solutions stray far from such noble concerns. Look back to Cummings’ Parliamentary testimony and recall that his criticism of Johnson was not that covid restrictions were scientifically unnecessary - which is now beyond reasonable doubt on all counts. Rather, his view was that the UK have should have locked down earlier in March and he "bitterly" regrets "not hitting the panic button earlier". Cummings also said that the PM rejected the recommendation last September that there should be a second lockdown in England. He believes that the Chancellor Rishi Sunak did a "fantastic job" with the furlough scheme (which, as above, is mainly responsible for out of control inflation).
More telling is who Cummings proposes as ‘intellects’. Recall that Andrew Sabisky had to resign in February 2020 following complaints about his previously expressed views on race, intelligence and eugenics. Will O'Shea, a data specialist appointed through Cummings' scheme, was dismissed in July 2020 after calling for police to shoot Black Lives Matter protesters with live ammunition. Lately, Cummings has been encouraging the US Republican Party to nominate an alternative to Trump as their candidate for the 2024 US presidential election. The reason given is what I find interesting, Trump was unable to “control” government. On his Substack, Cummings has cited Curtis Yarvin amongst others, as "people I have found interesting" in US politics.
But who is Curtis Yarvin? Curtis Yarvin, on his own Substack page called Gray Mirror, argues that American democracy is a failed experiment which should be replaced by monarchy or corporate governance. He is known for developing the anti-egalitarian and anti-democratic ideas behind the Dark Enlightenment.
In other words, Cummings seems to be attacking the PM because he wishes to usher in an ‘efficient’ (read: authoritarian) technocracy, not because he opposes the madness surrounding covid mandates and the unquantifiable damage they have inflicted on our country and people.
5) Beware of this domestic palace coup for it serves a global palace coup.
Is there any wonder then that MSM has backed Cummings despite him doing exactly what MSM accuses the PM of doing: violating the rules while the rest of us suffered. As the editor of TheArticle.Com Daniel Johnson argues:
“Cummings is a man who concealed the fact that he had broken the Covid rules and lied to cover his tracks…Nobody believed his ludicrous claim that he drove to Barnard Castle to test his eyesight — but he has stuck to it…In his Rose Garden press conference, he insisted that he and his wife had fled from London to the North-East because, stricken with illness, they needed childcare for their son. Later he said the real reason was anxiety about his security”
Suddenly, none of that matters to the MSM. According to Cummings, as confessed to in his BBC interview with Laura Kuenssberg
'We only got him (Johnson) in there because we had to solve a certain problem, not because he was the right person to be running the country.'
Because Cummings has made admitted that he never believed in Johnson anyway. What he does believe in - on the issues that count - has since been made clear, and it is more of the same: technocratic corporatism.
6) What are Johnson’s options?
To my mind, as all turn on him, Johnson has one option remaining. Fight for grass roots Tory values. It was these values as represented in Brexit voters, after all, that won him such a large majority in the first instance. By not clearly standing for anything, Johnson is haemorrhaging support from all sides.
Obviously he will never gain the support of Labour, who under Starmer will only ever continue to undermine anything that hinders that global palace coup - the Great Reset. He is also losing support among the Red Wall voters, as Christian Wakeford’s resignation today indicates. A section of the Tory party are unreliable, because like Sunak, they appear to be promoting the Great Reset.
However, if Johnson were to stop ignoring the views and concerns of those who put him there in the first place, those Tory backbenchers and members who have been opposed to Covid mandates since the start, those who helped him “get Brexit done”, then he has a chance of shoring up his support. It was, after all, this faction that also delivered him the Red Wall.
Johnson would be wise to double down against Covid mandates and continue apace with ditching all restrictions and restoring our lost civil liberties. This would keep everyone else on the back foot. The momentum among the public is clearly on this side. Johnson must see the blood in the water and bite. He would do well to remember that he cannot please all of the people all of the time. The restrictions and those who supported them will soon become a liability, and Johnson just might be able to get ahead of that curve, if he goes for it.
Leadership requires picking the best side, and then making the best case for it. Time will vindicate all else, as it already is. Failing this, it becomes incumbent on the 1922 committee to ensure that an actual Tory leads the Tory party as his replacement, and not someone seeking to suck on the technocratic teat of Klaus Schwab.
