🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿8 y.o. Cameron from Stonehaven #Scotland was hospitalized at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow on life support because of heart failure due to multi-system inflammatory syndrome from COVID #TheySurvivedCovid…
When he tested positive for Covid he showed no symptoms, and was quickly "back to his usual self".

But a few weeks later, he developed a lump on his neck (lymphadenopathy) & rashes on his body.

4 days later while watching TV, he complained to his mum that his vision was blurry.
At the hospital, Cameron deteriorated quickly and his heart began to fail.

Medics placed him in an induced coma and he was flown from Aberdeen Royal Infirmary to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.

🇬🇧Let's have a look at GRO deaths figures for #England & #Wales.
No bias, no manipulation, just a division into semesters.
Thanks to vaccination, excess #mortality was expected to disappear or at least collapse, but…🧐
And yes, because there are spectacular peaks, forgetting the depressions that follow (harvest effect) and then the excesses that accumulate week after week and which hurt the population, silently…
What about other UK nations?
#Scotland #NorthIreland
The excess is quadrupled!

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 27 y.o. Rashelle Baird from Brechin #Scotland passed away from COVID on Nov 19, 2021 - one year after her uncle died from the virus. The mother-of-three put off getting vaccinated because she was busy caring for her young children #SoulsLostToCovid…
"In hindsight, I would go back and kick her backside (to get the vaccine) - and say 'you've got three wee kids'," said her father

"It's absolutely crazy not getting vaccinated," he added.
"Fines, I think, is the way to go because people don't want to pay a fine. They don't want to be hit with a £1,000 fine," said her father

"How are they going to pay that? Well, you should have been vaccinated."

90% of the #COVID19 deaths in #Scotland last week were #Vaccinated

95 were 2 or 3 dose vaccinated 💉💉💉 (86.4%)
4 were 1 dose vaccinated 💉 (3.6%)
11 were #unvaccinated (10%)

Do the jags work ?🤷🏻‍♂️

Source: Public Health Scotland

71% of the #COVID19 Hospitalisations in #Scotland last week were #Vaccinated

70% of the population are fully vaccinated

Does that mean there is no measurable benefit to having the jag? Did the manufacturers not promise the jag would stop hospitalisations & death?

Source #PHS
12,685 #vaccinated people tested #Positive for #COVID19 last week in #Scotland alone ….

11,210 had received two or more jags 💉💉💉

Can the jag cause you to test positive for the virus it is eat to protect against ? Genuine question btw

Setback for the domestic agenda of @POTUS, who is attending #COP26 in #Scotland, as @Sen_JoeManchin tells reporters on Capitol Hill he won't support the $1.75 trillion #BuildBackBetter framework "without greater clarity."
"I'm open to supporting a final bill that helps move our country forward. But I'm equally open to voting against a bill that hurts our country," declares @Sen_JoeManchin.
"...we remain confident that the plan will gain Senator Manchin’s support," says @PressSec in statement. Image

The trend in #COVID19 deaths amongst the #FullyVaccinated continues to climb in #Scotland

Up from 73.6% to 85.4% in the past 2 months

Source data: Public Health Scotland
Some people make the argument the % deaths increases as the vaccination increases

That’s not the case as vaccination has stalled over the last two months as they reach saturation point…..

Some thoughts on the current #COVID situation in #Scotland - thanks to @HMcArdleHT @TigressEllie for the prompt.
I think the last couple of months - and especially the last week or so - teach us a lot about the virus spread in highly vaccinated populations.
The size of the outbreak in school-age children is staggering. Compare the peaks this September with the first and the second wave in the graph below:

1/ Ok so if you haven’t heard, we launched a report called ‘Failure Demand’. What does #FailureDemand mean? It’s a concept that explains the cycle of paying to band-aid problems - that continue to break.

If you haven’t read the report, do so here:
2/ Huh? Quick Econ-101🤓 Our current system creates a lot of ‘damage’ that the government is required to respond to. This includes widening economic inequalities, high levels of insecurity, despair, loneliness & the prospect of catastrophic climate breakdown & biodiversity loss.
3/ The report explains that much of this damage can be avoided if we just had a more socially just, sustainable economic model - *cough cough* a #WellbeingEconomy 🌞

My experiences with the NHS Scotland Covid Status app so far. A thread 🧵
After scrolling through various introductory screens and a privacy policy (let's be real, who reads them?) I'm met with this login screen. Common sense would dictate that I can use my login that I use to access my vaccination status online, right?
Spoiler alert: that's not the case. Tried logging in with those details and it wouldn't recognise them. New NHS app = new login details I suppose? Even if you are accessing the same data...

But now with also #COP26 round the corner, Scotland needs all hands on deck…👇🏾…

1. Gordon Brown, who is very on message about vaccination and other globalist cabal agendas was accused of being a pedophile by Norman Lamont (UK Chancellor of the Exchequer 1990-93) at a private party in 1986, who told journalist Mike James #MikeJames #GordonBrown #NormanLamont
2. Mike James wrote in 2010: "Gordon Brown, the current British prime minister, is a practicing pedophile whose activities are known not only to the British, American and Israeli intelligence services, but also by Rupert Murdoch and his senior editor at the Sunday Times."
3. Back in 2003 Mike James wrote "Tony Blair Caught Protecting Elite Paedophile Ring " when Tony Blair issued D notices to censor the press... #MikeJames #TonyBlair #GordonBrown #pedophile

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Court grants permission for judicial review into Unexplained #WealthOrder against Donald Trump

The judge's approval of the #McMafiaLaw probe represents "a significant hurdle" for legal efforts to scrutinize the financing of Trump's resorts

#Avaaz, a US-based non-profit activism organisation, petitioned #Scotland’s highest court after MSPs rejected calls to pursue an Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO) against the former US president’s Scottish firms.

"Its petition to the court stated that there are 'no reasonable grounds' to suspect that known sources of lawfully obtained income would have been sufficient to bankroll Mr Trump's acquisition of his Scottish properties."

At least two #Sikh lawyers were targeted using Israeli Spyware Pegasus. Advocate Jagdeep Singh Randhawa works with #KhalraMissionOrganisation on #humanrights issues.
His iPhone was infected with #Pegasus in 2019 when KMO has written to ICJ to probe into human rights abuses by Indian forces in East Punjab. Advocate Jaspal Singh Manjhpur is another #Sikh lawyer whose number is also part of leaked list of potential pegasus targets.
@Manjhpur maintains list of #uapa cases in Punjab for #PanjaabLawyers. He is also defence counsel of many #Sikh political prisoners, including #scotland #Sikh citizen Jagtar Singh Jaggi.
