"I understand that there are still people in this country who are concerned about the virus and its variants. I know there are questions over the number of people vaccinated and the degree of protection offered by those vaccines. However, there is no doubt that these measures...
these lockdowns, are destroying people's lives. They are killing people. Another four weeks of lockdown means thousands of people who are at no risk whatsoever from the virus being condemned to death. Now, if I were to say, as Prime Minister, that we were going to round up...
several thousand people and shoot them on live television in order to protect others from a virus, I have no doubt that every single person in Britain would be totally opposed to it. Well, ethically this is no different. The only difference is those deaths will happen over...
a protracted period and most of you will be oblivious to them. But they will happen nonetheless. And they will happen because of MY actions. It is time to concede that lockdown has been the gravest and most unforgivable mistake ever made in the history of our country. Anyone...
who has endorsed or promoted lockdown shares some degree of the shame. But none more than myself. That is why today, I am announcing an end to all of it. No more restrictions on freedom. No more mask mandates. No more testing. No more talk of medical apartheid. It all ends now...
I am also announcing my resignation as Prime Minister. I know I may never be forgiven for the damage I have caused. But it is my hope that better people than myself can salvage what is left of this once great country."

Is what I think you meant to say @BorisJohnson.

Boris Johnson and Joe Biden visited a small Cornish fishing village earlier today. Everyone there refused to speak to them and they were generally made to feel very unwelcome. The only friendly greeting they got was from a stray dog who decided to accompany them as they walked.
They decided to stop in at the village pub for refreshments. Johnson and Biden sat on stools at the bar, having smothered themselves in alcohol gel, and intermittently pulled down their face masks to sip the local ale. The dog lay down on the carpet between them.
There was nobody else in the pub apart from the landlord. After a while, a local resident came in and approached the two men. Saying nothing, he bent down and looked under the dog's tail. Then he left.
Soon after that, an elderly lady came in and did exactly the same thing.

There are people openly calling for children to be injected with these experimental 'vaccines' and suggesting that this can't happen soon enough.
To those people I say, burn in hell. You are amongst the most vile, despicable, sinister human beings ever to walk the earth.
But to everyone else I say this:

Please do not assume that you sound measured or intelligent by talking about the issue as though it's debatable or nuanced. Don't suggest that there might be a case for doing this at some point. Don't act like there's no clear answer.
This is open and shut. There is no logical or scientific reason to do it and it is morally repugnant. If we go down this path, things only get more corrupt and evil.
Trials in the U.S. suggest a likelihood of death from the vaccine in children of around one in 500.
That means

Let me make my moral position on this whole situation as clear as possible:

I believe that any government or advisory body, faced with a pandemic of a virus which appears to be dangerous, should take action to limit the harm it causes to a population.

However, ANY action taken should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES directly cause suffering (financial, psychological or physical) or death to any person in that population, whether or not that person is at risk from said virus.
It follows that any leaders NOT imposing measures against
a virus because they are in direct conflict with that principle, cannot be blamed for injury or death attributed to the virus. It also means that death or injury caused as a direct result of ignoring that principle, CAN and SHOULD be blamed on the leaders in question.

I have never been on a protest march before.

Previously, they never made sense to me. I doubted their ability to influence events and always thought there were more effective ways of opposing things you disagreed with.

This time it's different.

This time I'm marching.
Over the past year we have lived through the greatest assault on our fundamental rights and freedoms in living memory. We have seen the total abandonment of moral principles and rational thought. Absolutely none of it has been justifiable and our institutions have failed us.
Parliament, the judiciary, the media, the education system, the health service; all of the people who were supposed to protect us from something like this happening, ALL of them, have aided and abetted the country's descent into mass-psychosis and tyrannical rule.

There are many issues worthy of serious debate in a civilised society. There are ethical questions and moral dilemmas for which we have no clear cut solutions; Euthanasia, abortion, welfare, foreign aid. It is perfectly acceptable to be on either side of such debates.
But there are other areas of morality and ethics which are settled. The clear cut answers exist and ought to be understood by the majority in any decent society.
Over the past year, we have found ourselves debating such issues. They've been presented as difficult moral problems.
New conundrums never faced or considered previously:

Is it ethical to intentionally let one group of people die because you have a vague hunch it might let another group of people live?

Is the life of an 85 year old worth saving as much as the life of a five year old?

I have no problem with people trying to argue that lockdown was entirely justified. It's important that we have this debate to establish whether we should ever do it again.
But what you can't do is claim that the justification for lockdown is the '130,000' people who have died.
We are not at the beginning of this, debating whether or not to lockdown. We've been doing it for a whole year. We have had stricter measures, for a longer period of time, than almost any other country on Earth. And still, you claim, 130,000 people died from the virus.
This does not help your argument. It helps ours. What you need to be questioning, establishing and the asserting is how many lives have been SAVED by what we've done.
You then need to question, establish and assert how many people have been KILLED by these measures and will be
