Piers Corbyn, brother of former Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, has been arrested for breaching lockdown rules every day in 2021 so far. In his latest brush with the law, Corbyn was cuffed at a rally in London's Hyde Park.

With London under draconian Tier-4 lockdown restrictions, a group of several hundred protesters assembled in Hyde Park on Saturday. Holding signs reading "freedom over fear," they protested the government's ongoing crackdown on civil liberties in the name of curtailing the coronavirus.

Police arrested 17 of these protesters for breaching, with 73-year-old Piers Corbyn among them. As officers led Corbyn away in handcuffs, the crowd chanted "free Piers Corbyn."

'Heartfelt apology my A*S'!

Richmond Public Schools' '2019 teacher of the year' Rodney Robinson tweeted about Rand Paul's neighbor beating him up and wishing McConnell's neighbor would do the same.

Teacher of the year. That's sweet, right?

He has since deleted the tweet BUT as Twitchy readers know, the Internet is FOREVER, especially tweets.

BBC backtracks and admits children's wards are NOT seeing a surge in severe coronavirus admissions

Doctors have sought to reassure parents that there has been no increase in the severity of Covid-19 cases among children because of the new variant.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) said children's wards are not seeing any "significant pressure" from Covid-19.

It comes after a London hospital matron told BBC Radio 5 Live of having a ward full of children with coronavirus.


Comment: That's quite telling about the state of mind of hospital staff, they've been hystericized to see a pandemic that isn't there.


Comment: With the experimental vaccines being rolled out en masse, with the relentless fearmongering and misinformation people are deluged with on a daily bases, as well as the mandatory wearing of masks that restricts oxygen and is creating an extremely unhygienic environment for people, it's quite possible that we will, or even are, seeing a rise in some hospital admissions that, otherwise, wouldn't have occurred.

NHS had 15% LESS patients this December compared to 2019 - Any crisis is due to budget cuts, staff shortages and excessive measures

HOSPITALS had almost fifteen percent fewer patients this December compared with 2019
A freedom of information request to NHS England revealed that on December 22, three days after Boris Johnson introduced tier four for millions, more than 13,000 fewer beds were occupied than the same date in 2019.

The new data suggests a key reason hospitals are struggling is this lack of capacity.

The NHS is meant to keep a tenth of its beds free to create flexibility to admit patients and cope with sudden surges in demand - usually seen in winter.

Over the years this spare capacity has been used each winter and the NHS has been forced to treat patients in trolleys and in ambulances as ward beds have filled.

Comment: There you have it, the NHS isn't overwhelmed because of the coronavirus, it's suffering from decades of budget cuts, staff shortages, and the final straw was the excessive 'coronavirus measures' that removed any potential extra capacity that it had. Note that even with less admissions to hospitals the system still couldn't cope.

While the UK's population has increased by 14% over the last 20 years, there's been a massive 33% decrease in hospital beds. And, as is clear from The Guardian headlines below, this issue, that has been ongoing for well over a decade, was well known:

Los Angeles County Sheriffs sent their Covid Super Spreader Task Force agents to conduct raids and arrest people on New Year's Eve.

Officers raided 5 locations and arrested more than 90 people.

"I have made it clear that we will seek out and take law enforcement action against all super spreader events occurring anywhere within Los Angeles County," Sheriff Alex Villanueva said. "The goal of these enforcement actions is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and the risk to our vulnerable populations."

Locked-down Londoners seethe after Mayor Khan politicises taxpayer-funded New Year's fireworks with BLM & pro-EU agenda

London Mayor Sadiq Khan surprised locked-down residents with an unannounced New Year's Eve fireworks display, only to spark anger by filling the show with political messaging.

"Our New Year's Eve show just sent a loud, proud message to the world: London stands together against racism - tonight and always," Khan said in a Twitter message with a video clip showing an image of a raised fist above the Millennium Dome. The symbol has historically been a universal gesture of working class solidarity, but most recently has been appropriated by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Attention

You can't sue Pfizer or Moderna if you have severe Covid vaccine side effects. The government likely won't compensate you for damages either

If you experience severe side effects after getting a Covid vaccine, lawyers tell CNBC there is basically no one to blame in a U.S. court of law.

The federal government has granted companies like Pfizer and Moderna immunity from liability if something unintentionally goes wrong with their vaccines.

"It is very rare for a blanket immunity law to be passed," said Rogge Dunn, a Dallas labor and employment attorney. "Pharmaceutical companies typically aren't offered much liability protection under the law."

You also can't sue the Food and Drug Administration for authorizing a vaccine for emergency use, nor can you hold your employer accountable if they mandate inoculation as a condition of employment.

Congress created a fund specifically to help cover lost wages and out-of-pocket medical expenses for people who have been irreparably harmed by a "covered countermeasure," such as a vaccine. But it is difficult to use and rarely pays. Attorneys say it has compensated less than 6% of the claims filed in the last decade.

Ukrainian nationalists and neo-Nazis stage torchlight march in Kiev to mark Nazi collaborator's birthday

A rally to mark the 112th birth anniversary of Nazi collaborator Stepan Bandera in Kiev.
Thousands of people with torches marched through Kiev on Sunday on the first day of the new year to honor Ukrainian nationalist Stepan Bandera who collaborated with Nazis during WWII and actively participated in ethnic cleansings.

Bandera was born on January 1, 1909 and rallies celebrating his birthday recently became a sort of a tradition in the Ukrainian capital and other cities after the Euromaidan protests in 2014. They've since been staged with the blessing of the country's authorities, who declared the day a national holiday.

The participants of the march in Kiev carried torches, Bandera's portrait as well as flags of Ukraine and the country's nationalist and neo-Nazi organizations. Some came to the event with children.

Comment: This comes less than a week after a teenager was facing jail in Ukraine for buying a hat with a Soviet symbol on at a flea market. The police claimed that it breached 'strict local laws governing "the use of communist symbols on clothing."' - apparenlty these laws don't apply to celebrating Nazism. This is Ukraine following US 'intervention'.

Clash of the pseudo-realities: UK ex-doctors volunteering to help with Covid-19 vaccination blocked by mandatory diversity training & paperwork forest

Thousands of retired doctors and nurses volunteering to rejoin the UK's National Health Service during the pandemic are being forced to endure "diversity training" - but vaccination training is optional.

NHS veterans applying to return to the service are required to supply a whopping 21 pieces of evidence, the Daily Telegraph revealed on Wednesday, noting that the "red tape" had created a massive bottleneck in hiring with just 5,000 of over 40,000 doctors and nurses who applied for the positions starting in March had been hired by July.

A list of the requirements was posted to social media the same day, and the service's bizarre requests raised eyebrows across the country. In addition to standard requests like identity documents, proof of education, certification in such urgent-care basics as resuscitation, the NHS demands applicants complete courses in baffling subjects like "preventing radicalization" and "equality, diversity and human rights."

Even as hospitals complain of staffing shortages and job applicants tear their hair out at the number of hoops they're forced to jump through, the NHS has refused to budge on its requirements that doctors need not only be medically competent, but mentally compliant. Indeed, the service defended its "stringent recruitment process," arguing its goal was to "recruit a wide array of individuals from a variety of backgrounds - many of whom are not registered healthcare professionals."
