culling the elderly

Whilst at one hand the Conservative government initiated an extension of the pension age to 68 and probably above, at the same time, they now constantly emphasise how more fragile older people are in view of the Corona Virus.

This link shows you the list of cases recorded in almost real time. The number of recovered cases is shown as half the number of dying but that is very misleading as it does not mention what other conditions the sufferers had. Perhaps any other virus could have killed them equally as much as Corona.

Starting with the George Osborne and his side-kick David Cameron era, older politicians had been dismissed from the top of the party to be replaced with the younger versions. The most important influencer now being Dominic Cummunings, whose one important source is Bismarck, and Bismarck paved the way for the Hitler era. I watched that rather alarming documentaryabout him yesterday.

The Nazis were terrible about physical assaults and when he (Cummings) punched the ceiling to celebrate and then the accusations of him assaulting somebody in a staircase came to light, the whole atmosphere created is concerning.

I think Brits have one problem and that is to live on the glory of defeating the Nazis once, means they’ll always be good. Nobody is always good, everybody has to constantly work and work hard to remain good and be a good example.

Now Boris Johnson is busy to repeat again and again, that over 70s, should isolate themselves when a recent court case again assured us that age-discrimination should not be tolerated. The case of an Oxford Professor Ewart, being forced to retire and then give up in the middle of important research, which he conducted as Physicist.

In its judgement, the tribunal in Reading said the EJRA was highly discriminatory and it was “hard to think of a more severe discriminatory impact”.

“There can hardly be a greater discriminatory effect in the employment field than being dismissed simply because you hold a particular protected characteristic,” it said.

Here is the very recent case of a 97 year old scientist, the oldest ever winner of a Nobel Prize.

We really have to fight flat-rate age discrimination, assuming either that older people or younger people are more able or suseptible. Health conditions can hit anyone of any age these days. Since we are able to diagnose more specific conditions, we should stop making general assumptions.

The problem with Boris is that he loves to hate certain groups of people whether is the elderly or Asian women, he just creates this alarming scenario that singles some groups out as odd.

Why is such a guy even a leader?

Since the Conservative Party won some influence in Northern England, now even Coronatiaon Streethas started to write out older actors over the age of 70 because they are more suseptible to Corona Virus. It’s hard to believe that this is actually happening.

This government has created a generation of children who cannot take their GCSE or A-level exams in 2020. Sports people cannot compete because of hyped up fears over a virus. We have nothing but press reports that people died of this virus, figures being wildly spread around the globe, creating more hysteria than its worth.

There is no analysis how much percentage of a death was actually caused by the virus compared to other underlying conditions.

So far the deaths from Corona Virus are less than in any given year from the common flu.

Those reports, which alarm us to not go on public transport or travel without documents, is a favourite tactic by fascist governments to restrict freedom of movement. We should fight that as much as possible.

 

 

70-year olds, refuse age-discrimination

Hopefully some 70 year olds will fight this government’s blatant attempt to introduce age-discrimination and make it legal to stop all 70 year olds from leaving their homes.

It’s totally illegal now to discriminate because of age, so why should Corona Virus pave the way for the Conservatives to find a way to break the anti-discrimination policies we have today.
