HENPECKED to “protect the NHS” – one of the dumbest, most inhumane goals in medical history – thousands of sick Britons stopped visiting A&Es and their doctors. As a direct corollary, many of them are now dead. The British Medical Journal reports a “staggering number” of unexplained excess deaths in the UK. Far from being “overwhelmed,” many hospitals are near empty. Even Jim Hacker knew such a phenomenon was preposterous and grossly immoral. Boris Johnson seems to think it’s great. Brendan O’Neil – actuated by the BMJ findings – is rightly livid. His target is the media and he doesn’t miss.
In the United States, a similar story is now emerging: the New York Times reports that hospitals are losing $50 billion a month and some of them will be forced to close. Millions of unemployed Americans – suddenly bereft of employer-contributed insurance – will no longer be customers. It follows logically that tens of thousands of them will die too. Absurdly, governments spending hundreds of billions to financially support the people whose livelihoods they terminated in order to ‘fight’ coronavirus are now being lobbied to spend many billions more to bail out hospitals with no patients. This is a man-made disaster and the worst imaginable proof-positive that the media is indeed the enemy of the people.
