So which is scarier - Brexit or COVID?

93

My house is no longer a fortress



The protracted (almost like the Hundred Years War) "Brexit Saga", probably, could end not in divorce, but in a wedding. If only they tried to treat the invasion of Covid-19 (or SARS-CoV-2, as you prefer) on the old continent as a suitable occasion.

But modern politicians are not trained to admit their mistakes. And only the press can most often make them state such. However, that is why it is the fourth power, although again, as a rule, it is forced to be sold to the first three.

But we stand on that, alas. Before the divorce of Europe from Great Britain, there are only a few days left, and then the newly-born mutant virus drives us on. But someone still hopes that Brexit will not happen without a deal. And it is not necessary to reduce everything only to the problems of fishing, as it has been voiced over the past few days.

Britain managed to reach the home stretch, having defended almost all the preferences that it wanted. Up to the status of the border between the two Ireland, which will certainly be used by both sides to mitigate the negative effect of Brexit.

So is it really worth it to continue trying to "save face" in this situation? And to both: to the European Union bureaucrats, and to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his comrades?

Will the voters not understand? Voters will understand. Moreover, all sociological polls now show that with a new referendum, no Brexit would have happened anymore.

Blockade of foggy Albion


So which is scarier - Brexit or COVID?

However, under the threat of a complete blockade of the islands, the British Prime Minister urgently convened a meeting of an emergency government committee in London. But again, it may turn out that everyone is simply not up to Brexit.

The new SARS-CoV-2 strain again gave a great chance and a decent reason to hit the brakes. But Londoners are in a hurry to leave the city, promptly driven into an extraordinary lockdown.

With the passage of time, you can remember as much as you like that Brexit was a consequence of the 2007-2008 crisis, became a good background for the election of the pragmatist and realist Donald Trump as President of the United States, and also cost Theresa May as prime minister.

However, Boris Johnson in this chair confused the situation even more. The current talk of fishermen is a kind of flair that covers countless real contradictions and problems.

But by no means all of them are directly related to the beginning of the implementation of Brexit, which was superimposed on the third, or rather, on the “second and a half” wave of the coronavirus. At the moment, Britain is at risk of being blocked for a completely different reason - due to the identified new mutation COVID-19, which is considered much more infectious.

It turns out that Brexit should happen a bit too early. In any case, the problem of uncontrolled migration (almost the main and much more sensitive than the Irish border and all trade, taken together) has already been solved by Covid.

Mutation for mutants


The confusion at the top, which has been noted almost everywhere since the reports of the mutant virus, can, however, be deceiving. I do not exclude that soon the media will find confirmation that very many knew very well about the impending arrival of the third wave.

They even knew that it would happen when the second was not over yet. I repeat, very many knew, and not only a select few - in a narrow circle of professional virologists. However, now a calming sound is coming from their lips:

"RNA viruses mutate constantly, on average once a month ... I want to emphasize that, according to generally known rules, the more infectious a pathogen, the less lethal it is."

This (sorry for repeating) was said not by some politician, but by Ancha (Anna Vyacheslavovna) Baranova, professor of the School of Systems Biology at George Mason University, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Chief Researcher of the Laboratory of Functional Genomics at the Medical Genetic Research Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow).

By the way, Anna Baranova warned about possible dangerous mutations in SARS-CoV-2 back in November - more than a month ago. However, almost no one listened to her. I did not heed, among other things, because among the reasons, for example, the following was called:

"We treat too well and the virus has to change."

Alas, the mutation of the damned virus can, under certain conditions, render useless all the newest vaccines, which the world awaits like manna from heaven. And this is also indicated to us not by politicians (for whom the vaccine is nothing but a trump card), but by many experts in mutations.

However, such assessments are in a hurry to refute too many, up to the WHO. However, is it necessary to explain how this kind of public is interested in promoting not only Covid itself, but also vaccines from it, regardless of where and by whom they are developed.

And in England, the public, which itself turned into some kind of mutants who trust only "their own", preferred to listen half-heartedly to the head of "their" Ministry of Health Matt Hancock. He again reported in November that a thousand people in the south of the country had become infected with the new strain. Today, the new strain dominates throughout Britain.

Generation Relay


The adequacy of modern politicians has long been causing not only doubts, but also fears among part of the general public. We admit - an insignificant part that is not zombified by television and social networks. And it's a shame that these politicians are mostly from our generation, the first fairly numerous post-war generation.

For them, the Cuban Missile Crisis and Vietnam, the atomic threat, 1968 and Watergate are the impressions of childhood and adolescence that have stuck in their livers. They should care why there is so much bleach in the drinking water, and only powdered milk remains.

But the horrors of plague barracks, masks, gloves - how quickly such things became a habit. Almost everyone. Together with a total oxygen deficiency. To me personally, all this painfully reminds me of something half-forgotten over the years.

“Take off the gas mask, put on the gas mask”.


But there it was at least clear why and why. Today, the Covid dissidents (and in their hearts they are definitely the majority) cannot but be confused by too many things. And most of all - just the lack of consistency, logic and at least a hint of equality and fairness in the application of restrictive measures.

Even if all these measures help in some way, then there is no less doubt from this. The media chew on the Chinese and Swedish experiences almost every day: both are highly questionable. But the Belarusian experience was thoroughly trampled on with a flurry of information about the notorious protests.

About the protests, which, it seems, are already boring by the protesters themselves. However, what cannot be done for good money, especially since, by and large, there is nothing to do in Minsk or Vitebsk today.

We can't live without each other


But for some reason, not experts, namely politicians, cite all sorts of different data on the infectiousness of SARS-CoV-2 and the effectiveness of vaccines, and along with them - masks and gloves. They are still listened to much more attentively than those who are really in the subject.

As soon as Boris Johnson announced that the new strain was 70 percent more infectious than the previous ones, then the countries of the world (including Russia) began to race to close themselves off from Britain. Although the same virologists are convincing that it will not help.

And the new strain has been discovered not only in Britain. Also in the Netherlands, and in Denmark, which was almost an example to everyone in Europe. But from Johnson, no one heard that high contagiousness can mean that the disease will be easy.

But about this - let infectious disease specialists keep repeating. Almost no one listens to them. And no one at all hears. And after all, again, there will be hundreds of thousands and even millions of asymptomatic patients, and again everyone will be driven to get vaccinated. The guarantor promised that she would help 95 percent or even more.

Huddling in your corners is not an option. This is the entrance. And, apparently, straight into the apocalypse. With hunger, with wars (and not only with local, but also with civil ones) and revolutions.

The latter will not please even the most rabid revolutionaries. Although their job, "red" or "black", will certainly do.

And it is possible to resist the realization of such dystopias only together - our world is adapted just for this.

      So which is scarier - Brexit or COVID?

      More terrible is the soaring food prices in Russia. If they freeze prices, they will start exporting to where it is more expensive, then there will be a deficit. If they do not freeze it will be like now the horse price tag.
      And in England, the welfare state there paid the poor 500 pounds for self-isolation in addition, and this is 50 rubles at the current exchange rate. So you shouldn't feel sorry for them.

        And in England the welfare state is there for the poor 500 pounds


        My friend from Shchatov showed a check from Trump - no questions asked, no documents or anything else, $ 1200 each to him and his wife. In Spain the same thing, but for companies - they sent 800 euros each, to a friend and his wife, and this separately from other help. In Germany, VAT was removed (I don't know how it is in Russian) and in general they help everywhere.

        And I got from thieves, in my government, what is written on the fence .... Okay, elections in March. You will find yourself in hard labor ... (here you need an icon of a small nuclear mine that explodes).

          What nonsense, counting £ 500
          Prices for everything except excisable goods are approximately equal to those in Moscow. The housing of the poor is social, as a rule. In addition, unemployment benefits have not been canceled either.

            Well, why talk nonsense. In London, a person with an income of £ 1500 is considered a low income (poor) person. In Moscow, a person with 750 pounds of income lives quite normally, in the regions a salary of 500 pounds is considered very decent. And you want to say that a one-time issue of a third of the monthly income to an Englishman will greatly enrich the poor ??? Well, they, of course, will not be superfluous, but they will not significantly change the position of a person in London.

              Well, why talk nonsense.
              Long ago in England laughing ? 1500 in England - below average but fairly common salary - outside London (approx 22k before taxes)
              I repeat, prices for almost everything are the same as in Moscow.
              that a one-time delivery to an Englishman
              The rest of the benefits were not canceled.

                You don't understand, here you write that £ 1500 is a common salary (and this despite the fact that renting a one-room apartment on the outskirts of London costs £ 1000-1500), in another comment on this topic you write that £ 2500 is 80% of your earnings in Britain, i.e. after all, from 3000 pounds average earnings? laughing Therefore £ 500 is not a global payout for London? Otherwise, you juggle numbers as you want, depending on the situation.

                Meanwhile, in Britain, those who are forced to stay at home and not work (including self-employed and small businessmen) receive 80% of their earnings (up to £ 2500) until April 2021 (from April 2020).

                  Greek, 2500 pounds is the LIMIT of payments (if you received 10000 / month, then 8000 will not give you, but 2500 will be given)
                  £ 1500 is a common salary
                  Outside London and the South East, where for £ 1500 you can rent a three-room house with a garden. Only the unskilled and semi-unemployed earn so much in London.

                    What was required to prove - if in London 1500 pounds are received only by unskilled and semi-unemployed, then 500 pounds, this is very little money for a resident of London and the payment of the state in this amount is like an "elephant grain".

            Do you really think that wearing a mask won't get sick?
            You will get sick, I assure you. Rather, doctors say.
            Well, maybe a few days / weeks / months later. But the virus will catch you, that's 100%.
            And here the question is - how best to get sick - with good or weakened immunity? Breathing in fresh air, walking freely through the streets or after months of being locked up, breathing into a mask and getting a daily dose of stress?
            The mask is a filter. The most harmful factor is that it filters vital ions in the fresh air. Look at the snips, and what they say with regard to the minimum permissible ionization of air in rooms.
            Fresh air is not only important - it is vital. The mask kills.
            I'm not talking about other delights like psychological impact.

                    In 1940, when the Nazis bombed English cities,
                    and over England air battles of hundreds of planes raged,
                    Soviet steel, coal, grain poured into Germany
                    under the Soviet-German agreement.
                    But the British are not vindictive: when the Germans violated this
                    treaty and attacked the USSR, then immediately gave the Russians
                    military aid.

    Until completely "the attic will not demolish." Somehow on the Internet, two weeks ago I looked at the program "Meeting Place" by Norkin, with the participation of the epidemiologist Gundarov. I thought about Norkin better, but he is a journalist like everyone else. Here are his words (I will not say literally) "There is one trouble with you scientists, you only talk, but we will treat... Gundarov "How will you treat?" And then there's some kind of journalist "You talkers, people need to be saved!"
    And then Krylov's fable about a shoemaker and a pastry maker. All the media know how to treat, and doctors are just so-so, die from "Covid" in hospitals - about 500 people, and no one answered. And who is in command of the fight against "Covid" - the Federal Headquarters, headed by Golikova, Popova - a medical doctor, deputy. Minister of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Veterinary Supervision, Minister of Transport, Deputy Min. GO, deputy. Ministry of Foreign Affairs, deputy. SVR, Gendir. Aeroflot and who else. But not a single doctor is an epidemiologist, virologist, or bacteriologist. Doctors and scientists were simply dismissed. What can an economist or an Aeroflot Director do Golikova ???
    So maybe soon "attic sweeping" from this headquarters will start boarding nuclear submarines, strategic bombers, and begin to command. And we are all about the circus that has gone somewhere, but it turns out that it stands still, only the clowns occasionally change.

    They say that during the reign of Timur, a rebellion broke out in one city. The townspeople seized the governor and the guards and threw them into prison. Upon learning of this, Timur was terribly angry and, taking his troops, went to pacify and punish the rebels. The townspeople locked all the gates and began to defend themselves. Timur, despite all his efforts, could not take the city. Several times he stormed it, but was defeated. Then he called a messenger and said to him:
    - Get ready for the journey. I will write a letter and you will take it to my vizier. This week we must end the rebels.
    Timur took pen and paper and began to write. He wrote for a long time, and then turned to those surrounding him:
    - I wrote that a detachment of horsemen, a detachment of foot soldiers, a detachment of archers, soldiers with ballistae would be hastily sent to me. Now tell me what else it takes to deal with this city.
    Molla Nasreddin was also among those close to him, Timur took him with him on a campaign.
    - To cope with this city, - said Molla, - you don't need at all what you listed in the letter. Write, let them send a wise ruler. If there is one, then the matter will be settled without a fight

    I don’t know how it is in Britain, for that I know how it’s in Buryatia, as soon as the doctors began to actually pay extra for each patient with covidloid, the number of infected increased dramatically, and the death rate from the virus went uphill, although there are many questions about mortality, we all over 80 tons are now dying from the virus and from no other reason. Everything is like in a joke - lieutenant, on the corpse there are seventeen penetrating knife wounds, what to write? - write died from coronavirus - and how was the injury? - write - concomitant injuries. bully

    No need to explain, everything is just clear. According to experts, last year's volume of the global pharmaceutical market reached the milestone of one trillion dollars. This is more than the income from the oil and arms trade.
