Prime Minister of Wales announces two-week lockdown

Cardiff (dts news agency) - The head of government of Wales, Mark Drakeford, has announced a lockdown for the British part of the country for about two weeks in response to rising corona case numbers. Starting Friday at 6pm (local time) all non-essential retail, leisure and hospitality businesses will be closed, Drakeford said on Monday. People will also be instructed to work from home if possible.

Exceptions will be made for systemically important workers. In addition, members of different households will no longer be allowed to meet. The measures are to apply until November 9. In explaining the decision, the head of government said among other things that it would enable Wales to "be better prepared for the difficult winter".

Sweden has a very powerful medical service and they went full-in on the last 2010 bird flu mass vaccinating many people. They are still paying a shit-ton every month for the damaged teenagers. Especially teenage girls got a form of narcolepsy as well as other life-long health issues. There were some major documentaries back then and possibly that they reacted to that.

Sweden is in on any globalist measures, but as a country they are not much more left-leaning than Germany. Even when it comes to being cashless -there are other countries which are even more cashless - Finland - and they implemented all the restrictions anyway.

The medical authorities there are rather independent - another option is that some of the globalist elite decided to stay there for 2020 - and they wanted at least one developed near normal country to send their kids and family to.

Belarus has Lukashenko - that is the main reason. Problem there is the visa issue.
 
Ok....

So the western media is reporting that Swedish authorities 'want to' impose lockdowns...

Seems a lot like reporting terrifying death counts as people die 'with' conrona, after 'testing positive' in the last 28 days...

Desperate bullshit only mindless morons would buy.

Oh, wait...

From the Daily Mail...

'The new rules, expected to come into force on Monday, WILL ALLOW regional health authorities TO ASK citizens TO AVOID public places such as shopping centres, museums, libraries, swimming pools, concerts and gyms.'

Pretty stringent...

Will be interesting to see realities on ground.

This has been in place all year. The Health Agency basically issues recommendations, which they say people should follow... but there are no repercussions if they don't. Difference beeing that the recommendations can now be regional.

Don't forget there is a gap between what is published in the media vs what is actual government law.

For example, here in Australia - the media heavily implies (tells without actually telling us) all kinds of more restrictive stuff that just isn't true. The number of people that actually believe this version of the truth is staggering, even after you send them the official government website clearly stating otherwise.

For example, many believe (including police and shop greeters) that you need a 'medical permit' to not wear a mask, which you do not.

So you have a country like Iceland or Sweden where government policy isn't that restrictive but there are misleading news articles claiming that is is, using weasel words like 'MAY', 'POTENTIALLY', 'EXPLORING THE IDEA', 'WILL LIKELY' etc.

FYI, here in Australia, they have been seeding this message:

'...as Europe enters a deadly COVID Winter'
'...as Europe enters a deadly COVID Winter'
'...as Europe enters a deadly COVID Winter'

Ireland gets bingo:
This part is truly scary. Endless lockdowns are the new reality:
Martin said the government had rejected a strategy of zero Covid as unrealistic and a strategy of herd immunity as unethical. Periodic lockdowns may become the norm, he suggested. “We work to suppress the virus when it is growing, and we work to reopen as much of our society and economy as possible when it is safe to do so. Until we have a safe vaccine, we must continue in that pattern.

Yeah looks like Ireland and UK are the winners in the Euro lockdown sweepstakes.

As someone who is just coming out of a 6+ month lockdown, I would recommend thinking about moves right now (be it regional / outside a metro area) or another country.

Go live in a second tier city in Portugal for 6 months or something, enjoy some warmth while you're at it.

When you are running a psyop, you want to make everything random and unpredictable, to keep the target constantly off kilter. This fakedemic thing will be going on for years, similar to the "war on terror."
 
Ironically, in regards to Sweden, reports dropped last night about the government wanting to introduce a "temporary" pandemic law imposing on our constitution. The minister for health and social affairs said it may only be in place by the summer 2021, though.
 
From Thursday Bulgaria will have mandatory masks outdoors (very curious about how this will be implemented). They managed to milk the numbers to 1000 a day, even though, apart from a couple cities, the official information is not stating that even quarter of the beds are utilized. Less than 60 ICUs in the whole country.

The situation with the government is precarious. I am caught in two minds. I am quietly content with the current government but they just seem to follow the international orders on this plandemic stuff. There have been some protests for political reasons, supported by "Open Society" and the socialists (aka former communists) which I don't support. However, another lockdown will destroy even further the trust in the current government (which might seem right wing to the average Scandinavian, but it's really centrist).

I am working remotely. I might as well escape to the countryside with this nice lady I met.
 
I am no fan of the EU and its useless vermin bureaucrats, however, it has to be noted that countries such as Serbia and Macedonia suffered harsher lockdowns and more extreme force used on the populace. The covid stuff is fascinating in the way it can unite even politically polarized enemies or go beyond expected regional borders.

The churches are open and people can go. Have not heard of a single priest that accepts the masks inside, but I generally try to avoid the news. So is everything, still, but they better not do another lockdown. Regular elections taking place in February.

In Albania most people wear masks but I don't ; apart from the obvious ones ( going to the bank ).
There seems to be almost no police around and noone really cares .
The only worrying thing is that I am.not able.to travel anywhere ; since I don't want to make a test . Almost all countries in Balkans require a PCR test . So I am just staying here ; living the Hoxha dream of being locked in Albania
A big lesson of humility for people like me who like to travel to other countries

How are you finding it from a social network (family/friend/locals) perspective?

One thing I can't work out is if it's better to be locked down in a familiar location VS free in a foreign location (where you may not even speak the language).

I am legally working here for 3 years so I'm totally fine. I am a so-called "expat" . Wife and kids are legally with me and we have just extended our residence permit.

I would strongly advise people to not flee somewhere where they need a residence permit/visa. I don't think that fleeing somewhere and becoming an illegal is an option. People had all summer to try to flee somewhere legally ; I think now you must stay where you are and find the best spot where you are

People inside the EU are more or less doomed apart from moving to extremely remote villages...

US citizens should try to flee and find a state which will be correct with them
 
Probably with a 200 EUR fine, similar to the $200 fine in Melbourne.
It would be a bit more "Bulgarian" than that. 500 euro and they will only implement it in the first week.

One guy in the cafe today (a customer) was very alpha about it and wanted to murder this woman (working for the government and handing out warnings on the shopkeepers) on the spot. Toxic masculinity and I enjoyed every bit of it, though I do not lash out at personnel as they are on a payroll to participate in the circus without being asked.

I got one of these plexiglas masks that are transparent and also give you much more space to breath. I can smile sarcastically at any aspiring Karens now. Still hoping we might get away with it without a lockdown. Meanwhile, the quarantine has been reduced to 10 days throughout the country.

Good for you, if you have your family with you you always have each other.

I still wonder for the solo guy.

Being locked down and not being able to move forward with goals to find a wife and family is the most frustrating part.

That s also why the entire society should encourage people to marry young and to make kids young . Indeed I am very happy to have them with me. Being solo and trying to flee elsewhere must be s pretty big burden
