I am berated by mask jihadists here in my home village of Holt for my refusal to wear a face nappy. My national leader here in Wales, a deranged chap of low intellect called Mr Mark Drakeford, tells us we have to wear one everywhere, even in a open air school playground when we pick up our kids. Yet if you ask them for data to back their views all they can say is “most doctors say“or “the experts say”. They cannot cite one single study to back up their extreme claims. My GP will not treat give me a flu jab unless I mask up, but nobody at the Village Surgeries Group, over the border among the English infidels, can offer me one shred of evidence as to why a twice jabbed chap who also has antibodies from surviving covid is more likely to transmit the disease to other twice jabbed folks if not wearing a mask. There are no facts to justify this fascist diktat. Well chaps you want some facts?
Luckily I can bring you a review of studies that have taken place and it concludes:
The available clinical evidence of facemask efficacy is of low quality and the best available clinical evidence has mostly failed to show efficacy, with fourteen of sixteen identified randomized controlled trials comparing face masks to no mask controls failing to find statistically significant benefit in the intent‐to‐treat populations.
On that basis we are polluting the oceans with a flood of discarded masks, causing distress and anxiety for millions of folks and providing a false sense of security to others. I was told by the vicar at my father’s funeral in Shipston that I needed to wear a mask so that a 99 year old lady using the vast church 48 hours later would be “safer”. Mrs Vicar, as I noted then, you were misleading the 99 year old with your claim – remember Proverbs 19:5!
Of course many folks, like the chap who owns Matt Hancock’s local boozer have grown fabulously rich supplying masks. One day folks will, I hope, be held to account for their part in this scandal, the greed, the deception and the industrial scale lying which the Church, the political and media classes and big business have all been complicit in.
