That International Letter wasn’t written on this machine ….
You couldn’t make this up even if you tried. Yet again, words fail me utterly. The reason is a letter which we must look at, for the record. This ‘letter’ was written and undersigned by a clutch of international politicians, or rather: ‘24 world leaders plus the WHO Chief’ according to the DT. It was published simultaneously in the DT “and newspapers across the world including Le Monde in France, El Pais in Spain and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in Germany.” (paywalled link). We’re not told if papers in those other countries also published this letter.
In view of this letter the customary inanities of yon Matt pale into insignificance but for the record I have to quote him this once – and yes, it also comes under ‘you really couldn’t make this up’:
“We’re doing the science in Porton Down and watching very closely and if that all goes well, then we haven’t got a problem and then we’ll be much more relaxed about international travel. We will know more over the next few weeks.Those tests are likely to involve looking at whether the variants are effectively neutralised by antibodies produced by people who have been vaccinated. Although this will give a good indication of whether people can still become infected, it will not show whether they are less likely to need hospital treatment or die if they are.” (link, paywalled)
Words again fail me utterly. It’s not even that ‘our Matt’ is ‘doing the science’ which is toenail-curling in itself, it’s that he blatantly prepares the way for ongoing covid restrictions because ‘we don’t know if they may die after having swamped Our NHS’. Keep this Matt pronunciation on file: it’s a warning that the covid dictatorship will be kept going.
And so to that letter. This is international virtue signalling of the highest order. The language is breathtaking in its lofty woolliness (paywalled link). It’s immediately obvious that this is about setting up yet another international entity, aimed to get more money from the ‘rich west’ while creating ‘jobs for the boyz and girlz’ when one reads their words that this covid pandemic is ‘a stark reminder that nobody is safe until everybody is safe’ (from the summary report: link).
Omigawd. Do they want to wrap the whole world in cotton wool, kept in lockdown at the drop of a ‘new virus’ or, at the moment, a ‘new covid variant’, on the say-so of government scientists? Or is this nothing but the latest ‘international’ exercise of politicians and their ubiquitous civil serpents (you didn’t think they were only to be found in the UK, did you!) to keep in the international limelight?
Right at the top of the letter one remarkable point struck me: it is addressed to nobody. Not to the UNO, not to any ‘world leader’. Furthermore, the absence of certain ‘world leaders’ signing that letter is, well, rather astonishing. For the record, here’s the full list of signatories:
“J. V. Bainimarama, prime minister of Fiji; António Luís Santos da Costa, prime minister of Portugal; Klaus Iohannis, president of Romania; Boris Johnson, prime minister of the United Kingdom; Paul Kagame, president of Rwanda; Uhuru Kenyatta, president of Kenya; Emmanuel Macron, president of France; Angela Merkel, chancellor of Germany; Charles Michel, president of the European Council; Kyriakos Mitsotakis, prime minister of Greece; Moon Jae-in, president of the Republic of Korea; Sebastián Piñera, president of Chile; Carlos Alvarado Quesada, president of Costa Rica; Edi Rama, prime minister of Albania; Cyril Ramaphosa, president of South Africa; Keith Rowley, prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago; Mark Rutte, prime minister of the Netherlands; Kais Saied, president of Tunisia; Macky Sall, president of Senegal; Pedro Sánchez, Prime Minister of Spain; Erna Solberg, prime minister of Norway; Aleksandar Vučić, president of Serbia; Joko Widodo, president of Indonesia; Volodymyr Zelensky, president of Ukraine; Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organisation” (paywalled link)
It’s nice that they’re all arranged in alphabetical order so it doesn’t take long to note who all hasn’t signed: not Biden, not Bolsanaro (Brazil), not Modi (India), not Putin, not Xi. Interesting. Also lacking are the names of the leaders of Australia, Canada and NZ. M Michel, Pres of the EU Council, signed though. Phew. would’ve been bad to’ve left out the dear EU!
All in all, this is a very odd collection of signatories, enforcing my cynical view that this is ultimately about getting more money from the ‘rich West’ on the one hand while making the signatories, certainly those from European countries, look virtuous and generous. I’m sure we all appreciate that Macron and Merkel signed, given their incessant enmity towards Brexit Britain, especially in regard to that Vaccine War they instigated. Ultimately, they believe, a treaty like the one after WWII is needed,
“to build cross-border co-operation ahead of the next international health crisis, describing Covid as “the biggest challenge to the global community since the 1940s”. (paywalled link)
And here was silly me thinking the ‘biggest challenge’ to the global community was the “Climate Change Emergency we’re all gonna die” thingie! How wrong one can be …!
Reading some of the beautifully crafted weasel words in that letter addressed to no-one, I can’t help wondering if this ‘international outcry’ by those ‘world leaders’ isn’t a Trojan horse to prepare the way for ‘global climate lockdown treaties’. At the moment it’s all about covid now and other possible viruses later, for example:
“We are, therefore, committed to ensuring universal and equitable access to safe, efficacious and affordable vaccines, medicines and diagnostics for this and future pandemics. Immunisation is a global public good and we will need to be able to develop, manufacture and deploy vaccines as quickly as possible.” (paywalled link)
Hm. This could’ve been written by Macron, Merkel and vdLeyen (no, she didn’t sign), with a broad hint at BJ to let EU countries keep vaccines manufactured in the EU. But there’s more which fuelled my cynical suspicions:
“To that end, we believe that nations should work together towards a new international treaty for pandemic preparedness and response. Such a renewed collective commitment would be a milestone in stepping up pandemic preparedness at the highest political level. It would be rooted in the constitution of the World Health Organisation, drawing in other relevant organisations key to this endeavour, in support of the principle of health for all. Existing global health instruments, especially the International Health Regulations, would underpin such a treaty, ensuring a firm and tested foundation on which we can build and improve.”(paywalled link)
Ah – the WHO is to be the driving force! That same WHO which is in the pocket of China, that same WHO which deemed mask wearing not useful until it did, which didn’t warn the ‘international community’ that covid could be transmitted from human to human until it did. The same WHO who instigated the ‘test & trace’ craze, who warned about the secret asymptomatic ‘spreaders’ of that virus. The WHO which receives funding from certain billionaires and their foundations. Yeah, that’ll work.
As for those ‘international health regulations’ – aww! We’ve all noted how quickly bureaucrats are out of the block with ‘regulations’, haven’t we! The important point here is that this is a stepping stone towards demanding and then creating that vaccine passport. If “we” can’t have those nationally for legal reasons, then surely “we” will get them because “we” want to protect the international community, never mind doing such bourgeois things like travel to far-flung countries …
I believe we can have an educated guess as to who was instrumental in formulating this letter, these proposals, this veiled attempt to create an international covid passport. He’s no longer an official ‘world leader’ so he hasn’t signed, but his handwriting is all over it. I give you … Tony Blair … And who would bet against another non-signatory having lent a helping hand in crafting this letter – a certain Mr B. Gates.
I leave you with this last quote which makes abundantly clear that this is the first step down that slippery slope to the ‘Great Reset’:
“The main goal of this treaty would be to foster an all of government and all of society approach, strengthening national, regional and global capacities and resilience to future pandemics. This includes greatly enhancing international co-operation to improve, for example, alert systems, data-sharing, research and local, regional and global production and distribution of medical and public health counter-measures such as vaccines, medicines, diagnostics and personal protective equipment.“ (paywalled link)
Ah! What noble aims! It’s not, as one might naively think, about providing vaccines, about ‘public health measures’ and all the rest. No, this means governments and global institutions aim to get access to all our data, especially our health data. It’s about paving the way for a global health dictatorship where everything is geared to work for and produce things for national and indeed global health organisations, such as ‘Our NHS’.
Addressing no-one but leaving out the heads of state of the USA, China and Russia this letter is akin to what German wags call ‘self-dwarficiation’. It is deeply embarrassing. But it’s lovely, isn’t it, to see Johnson, Macron, Merkel and Ghebreyesus sing from the same hymn sheet of global virtue signalling! Now let’s hear from Xi, Putin, Modi and Biden …
Today, in a change from covid matters, I was going to address the burgeoning ‘sex scandal in public schools’. The publication of this letter prevented me from doing so, but I’ll do it tomorrow, covid or not. It’s another chapter in my ‘words fail me’ compilation and demands a closer look.
