Save Boris Johnson, Save the World

Hello

Boris Johnson is the best Prime Minister for many years.

To help him in this time of being in hospital, he will know what a sterile and terrifying place it is. People in masks, it will be impossible for the 9 million people with hearing issues, to work out what is happening, let alone what is wrong with them..

Firstly, I had a high temperature on 24 February. It was not like anything I had had before, but there were no other symptoms and 111 said I was wasting their time. I isolated myself for a week. I slept for 24 hours, then 12 hours’ sleep for 3 days and I was fine and remain so.

The x-rays that I saw on TV showed damage to the lower lungs.

There is a breathing exercise where you breathe into the top of your lungs. They go up as far as your shoulders. When I told BUPA Doctors this circa 2010, they had no idea what I was talking about. But Paul Brennan had told me about it the week before. Apparently the UK medical profession did not accept it at the time.

It should be taught properly by an Aston-Patterning Practitioner; mine is Paul Brennan paul@paulhb.com . There are only 5 in Europe, although Paul Brennan is also a mentor.

Can you breathe into one shoulder at a time?

Put your right hand’s fingertips at the top of your left shoulder.

Left-handers, put your left hand’s fingertips to the top of your right shoulder.

Breathe in gently through your nose for 3 or 4 puffs. And breathe out gently through your mouth.  And feel the movement in your shoulder. It takes time to work.

Please ask Paul in to help Boris Johnson. Paul has exercises on Amazon Audible.

Yesterday I was called to care for a relative and I forgot my asthma medication. I did the exercises at the time to sleep and again in the morning. I only have mild asthma, yet I lasted until I could take my medication. It does show the power of the exercises.

Music to your ears, preferably your own mp3 or whatever. Maybe elderly patients can listen to an mp3 recording of their grandchildren singing. Or music of your era. Encourage patients to mouth, sing songs, maybe hum. Singing helps breathing.

And get someone like Anthony Robbins to stream his message of hope to everyone in the hospital. This has to be done for free.

Tai Chi – can be done sitting down, for people getting better.

Maybe Boris has overdone it. who does a Prime Minister listen to?

The Queen, perhaps, who gave her greatest speech for a generation. Let the whole hospital listen to it on repeat, to give everyone hope. This is what we want for Boris.

Best wishes for everyone

The UK claps our NHS and all workers within it and it makes everyone feel good.

The Italians sing on their balconies. We are all different and we have visionary scientists and Doctors who are learning from each other.

Get well soon, Boris.

And the best thing for you is sleep.

Ignorant Politicians Put A Major Trading Relationship At Risk

Having read the short article by Michael Gove, he has to be stopped.

The Chinese authorities discovered a new, unrecognizable virus in Wuhan, a city of 11 million people on 9 December 2019. Twenty-two days later, they had identified the source as possibly a live fish and animal market in Wuhan. However, the Coronavirus had never transmitted to humans before. Consider how long it would take Europe, to identify the virus, argue about where it originated, no one country wanting to take the blame and you will see just what a gargantuan job it was. After Christmas and aware of Chinese New Year on the horizon, the Chinese told the World Health Organization on 31 December. This undoubtedly saved thousands of lives of foreign tourists and Chinese people alike. It was a statesman’s decision.

Cities went into lockdown to try and contain the spread of the virus. People were forcibly taken to hospital, if they were showing symptoms or had been in contact with an infected person. China appears to be the first country to recover from Covid-19 disease. I just hope that we are asking for help.

China does not deserve being poked by Mr Gove, a man with delusions of grandeur (an early leadership candidate against Boris Johnson). Now he has truly shot himself in the foot. We like the Chinese. Maybe it’s partly because they looked at our country and decided they would like to live here. Why would we insult them? It seems as if Mr Gove and a short-serving Prime Minister, Ian Duncan Smith have not done their research. And why do I get the impression that their next shot will be about Huawei? If there is no hullaboo about this article, let’s be stupider and cast another stone. Let’s not.

The only terrifying thing is that Mr Gove took Matt Hancock, the Health Secretary’s place today when telling us of more family tragedies. My problem was that he looked like a Prime Minister. Boris, please send him on a mission, not to China obviously.

As neither Messsrs Gove and Duncan Smith are in business, please be aware that every company wants to save the world and make the most money. It is normal. Capitalism has guards against world takeover happening, but a funny response came from a security agency, when they said that they could keep a telecomms company from accessing our secure networks. Unless that was fake news. If not, then they should employ some younger minds who have been immersed in computer hacking or in degrees. Really, what a daft thing to say. Please do not tar us all with the same brush.

And the international response or lack thereof? It was exactly the same for all countries. Firstly there is disbelief, then comes realization that the old and young in societies were most at risk, as well as those with underlying health conditions. And people were dying. Boris Johnson handled the emergency marvellously. I’m feeling a bit worried about him, as he socially distanced himself at least a week ago.

We did not have insufficient time to prepare; we simply did not believe that:

a) the Coronavirus had transmitted to humans

and

b) that people are dying.

the whole world’s scientists are studying the coronavirus. Once its strands have been found, can each country take a different part of the virus and study it, in the hope of finding a cure more quickly?

I have stopped watching the news. We have measured our soldiers’ deaths in individual tragedies. Now in the UK, government shares news of multiple tragedies. Maybe they should concentrate on news of how well communities are helping each other.

Allotments anyone?

Could we establish a fund to buy more ventilators or equipment to help workers on the front line? You may not remember but a British space scientist, Professor Colin Trevor Pullinger said that if the British public each gave £10, we could put together another UK mission to Mars? So £1-£5 each to buy new facial equipment in our communities? Just a thought.

Stay safe and keep happy at home.

Say Goodbye to HS1

Hello to Boris and applaud what a fine job he and our new Chancellor of the Exchequer are doing.

It is time to mothball HS1, a hugely controversial railway that is not yet needed between London and the northern cities.

And remember, Boris, that you promised the northern cities inward investment and a new type of railway would make their links stronger and faster.

We cannot afford it, certainly not with the £300 billion that has rightly been promised to businesses to keep them alive.

Closing schools? How will children access school meals? Those with free meals are being offered vouchers, yet there is a large number of children who are borderline, about to be offered. Can Churches step in and give out free lunch, provided by community charities?

And why can’t your children run around in your garden? If someone sneezes on the other side of the fence, it should be up to the main caregiver.

Best

Reporters Are Scaring The Public

Hello,

Coronavirus is a serious virus, but TV reporters ought to

a) stop asking banal, predictable questions, such as

i) How many people are likely to get it and

b) how many people will die?

The UK Chief of Health could barely disguise his contempt, when he responded, as, of course, he can only give best estimates at the moment. When our scientists have time to study patients and the Coronavirus, they will be in a better position help.

However, I find the jumping on the bandwagon by the Press, to be sickening. They should be encouraging and telling people what to do in case symptoms appear.

Discussion of symptoms is avoidable.

Current advice is to wash hands thoroughly, cough or sneeze into a tissue and away from other people. The NHS must be clear and in a bigger font than it is currently.

We are going to cope with it in the UK.

The lemmings are in the stockmarket. They have been clinging to the cliff edge for the past two weeks. Stockmarkets the world over, fell last week.

So to Fund Managers, look to your assets, back British companies, encourage them to trade. Now that we are out of the EU, we should have limitless opportunities – Canada, Australia, We can export our products, with a promise that transport has had a deep clean and will continue en route. And before it unloads. This gives a positive, upbeat outlook and will shove the lemmings back in their corral.

Good luck for a positive week

Oh Boris, you only needed to take a bite of the pie, not the whole pie!

Hello

So HS2 has been accepted in its entirety, yet many of the opposing Tory backbenchers live in its path.

There is no need for all of HS2. Can we forget the part from London to Birmingham? Boris has agreed to spend money on the Northern regions. Build this part and let them trade with each other.

If, as Birmingham’s Mayor said on this evening’s TV News, that it may take 20, 30 or 50 years to create, then do it inland. In around 2034, there may be a need for London to have higher tidal barriers as water rises around the world. There is talk of 1.5 metres.

Before we talk about buying so many trains from a German company, no less, there should be a proper study of how many are needed. And that German company, although highly respected, is not British. Our Derbyshire carriage-makers shouted vigorously, but no-one in government listened.

The beauty of creating a high-speed line between the northern cities of Birmingham and Leeds, for example, means that a far higher specification can be drawn up for the London-Birmingham connection. something quieter, that does not annihilate ancient woodlands, that bypasses meadows and marshes.

We have a rich diversity of insects in these environments. Let us stay that way.

In the meantime, Boris can enjoy being feted by the northern cities, to whom you promised due care and attention.

I took a break. Now we can start making our own demands on Brussels, from a position of respect.

Have a good week

Everyone knows Boris Johnson’s position and for the rest, let the games begin.

Nobody can say that Boris Johnson does not have a stance on Brexit. Of course he has; he has been saying what he believes in and what he will do for the country for the past three months. Suddenly, the Opposition Parties do not know what they think and are gathering a group of lemmings. It is because they have to make their manifesto, with nobody to rail against. If it was not so serious, it would be funny. The Liberal Democrat Jo Swinson has said that she will stop Brexit. It would perhaps be a good idea to ask the constituency to do an informal poll to find out how many of her Party members voted for Brexit. I may not agree with her, but she has courage.

The other parties are far too afraid of losing votes to put their definitive positions.

I don’t think that we have had a Prime Minister who has hit the ground running before, apart from Mrs Thatcher. Boris Johnson has listened to people on the front line of care. He just needs to surround himself with people who can make improvements happen.

So, two appalling events that have been allowed to happen:

  1. A young career broadcaster who said something silly that was brought out at the time. But, however it objectifies women, it is true. What he really said was that women did not understand men and shouldn’t get themselves into a situation they cannot manage. He’s only 34 and has wanted to be an MP for a very long time. It would be a good man who could reinstate him; it might just not be Boris Johnson. Is that the pot calling the kettle black?
  2. Mr Jacob Rees-Mogg lounged on a seat in the Houses of Parliament before or after hours. It shows just how exhausted he was. No-one minded, no-one sacked him; it was nonsensical. But it does show the amount of work the ferrets are creating. It was so sweet to see him with his eldest son, so like him, protecting him from a barrage of cameras.

So Parliament has to sit on a Saturday. Their Prime Minister needs a break. A few days maybe, where no-one can find him.

Regards for a busy week.

Guy Verhoefstadt tips the seesaw

Hello

Guy Verhoefstadt, the fake Anglophile, who evidently flat-irons his hair … on an ironing board, to make it lank.

Don’t you mock our Prime Minister; we don’t like it. Of course, Mrs May was mocked and replied in the politest fashion. Doubtless, they misunderstand lofty comments. The best are when the tormentor is unsure whether they have been insulted or not. Boris Johnson is British to his core, but as impassioned as Mrs May was not. I wonder what he will come up with, Mr Verhoefstadt?

Of course Boris said ‘do or die’. If you want a big achievement, you have to make expansive comments, give yourself huge goals. But these leading EU negotiators make nothing. They create nothing except huge expense accounts when flitting between Strasbourg and Brussels, every 3 weeks. That is one huge bill we no longer agree to foot. They also need us to stay, so desperately. It took 27 countries to sign ‘yes’ to the initial Treaty. How long did it take this time? On a shower of hands? Their refusal to let us leave is contemptible.

And, yet, we must protect …

Our fishing limits around England and pertinently around the coasts of Scotland;

Our agriculture, manufacturing, medical supplies,

The 1001 small companies in the FSB, CBI etc.

We know, don’t we, that such a big contributor to EU frippery, cannot be allowed to leave. So give us continual 3-monthly extensions, until something snaps. We don’t like threats of this kind. It is a fact that we pay more than we receive in grants etc. And who is going to pay for French agriculture? They hate needing us to pay into EU coffers.

Our lives are currently in suspended Brexit-animation. Please, Boris, get us out of here. Without a General Election. This country needs you and the last word goes to M. Barnier . He called it a ‘flexextension’, proof that every language can be tortured in the name of good senses. It means that we don’t have to wait until January 2020. We can go by Christmas. Wouldn’t that be a lovely present?

Work colleagues of all parties are refusing to take part in a General Election. Forget it, Boris, just get us out, please.
