I was naturally sorry to hear of the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore. But I was left bewildered.
I feel that Sir Tom was used as a propaganda weapon during the last months of his life and after his death, and now we are entitled to some answers to some very pertinent questions.
When governments and the mainstream media lie constantly they eventually lose all trust – and we are well past that point. The media hype about Sir Tom raises more questions than it answers.
First, how much of the money raised went to the NHS? Was any money taken for `management’ fees? If so, how much? Whose idea was the money raising idea? How did it get so much publicity?
Second, what happened to the millions that were raised? I have read that some or much of it was spent on buying snacks for NHS staff. Is this true? This was reported on the BBC under a headline which included a cross-heading `Snacks for staff in County Durham’ but the BBC seems to me to specialise in fake news and is, of course, not reliable. I think most people would have assumed the millions went to hire nurses or buy useful drugs such as vitamin D and hydroxychloroquine, rather than Mars bars and biscuits for members of staff. The BBC reported that the loot raised by Tom was part of £150 million raised as part of the NHS Charities Together in response to their Covid-19 Urgent Appeal. And that, apparently, was being spent on sandwiches, drinks and energy bars as well as lip balms and hand creams for staff. I wonder what the 1.5 million donors who gave money in response to Tom’s travels around his garden thought their money was going to be used for.
Third, who received all the money from other projects? There was, of course, a book. There will doubtless be many spin offs. A film, more books and so on and so on. What happens to that money?
Fourth, did he or did he not have the vaccine? It was at first reported nationally that Tom had received it (both the Mail online and Sky TV said he’d been vaccinated – click here to see the original article in the Daily Mail – 8th paragraph down) but then, after he died, it was announced that he didn’t have the vaccine because he wasn’t well enough. Really? How did they get that wrong? In these cruel, dystopian times it’s difficult to avoid the thought that if he had survived he would have been used as an advertisement for the vaccine – but that when he died it might have possibly been considered necessary to hide the fact that he’d been vaccinated so as not to put others off the idea of taking it. I don’t think I am being unduly cynical about this. The lies of the Government and the media have made it impossible to trust anything that we are told. For example, I cannot be the only person who doesn’t believe that the Queen or her consort received the vaccine. They can produce an entire posse of politicians and government advisors claiming they did and I’m sorry but I won’t believe them.
Fifth, will the newspapers which reported that he died of covid-19 publish corrections? Tom tested positive for the coronavirus but that was hardly surprising and utterly insignificant. I saw reports that he died of covid-19 and I have seen reports that he died with covid-19. There is, of course, a world of difference. (I would complain but it will take at least six months for the complaints to filter through the system and the result will be half inch apologies printed on page 37.) In fact, Tom is reported to have died of pneumonia. The PCR test was as relevant as an old parking ticket. But if he did have the vaccine, is it possible that the vaccine damaged him enough to make him vulnerable to bacterial pneumonia?
Sixth, if Tom did die of pneumonia, is it remotely possible that the pneumonia might have been caused by the mask he was wearing? There is, of course, a global epidemic of bacterial pneumonia caused by mask wearing. Incidentally, some spokes-idiots say that we should all wear more masks – I have seen it said that two or three at a time would be preferable. Wearing two or three masks would undoubtedly speed up the epidemic of bacterial pneumonia currently sweeping the world and adding to the death totals falsely attributed to covid-19. The mask wearing, and the vaccines, will ensure that the number of deaths which can be attributed to covid-19 will continue to rise.
Seventh, one way or another I think it’s a pretty fair bet that the Government and the NHS succeeded in killing Captain Sir Tom – a manufactured hero is now a manufactured martyr. Still, he doubtless had some fun out of all the fuss and wherever he is I wish him well. They’ve probably named a cloud after him by now.
