So, what am I talking about...zzzzz?
Well, maybe it's about a bumbling Boris Johnson, who was an American citizen, was born there, but rescinded his Americanism at some stage.
He is not related to Winston Churchill as many may think, other than Churchill was a role model for him, this Winston Churchill,
'When Labour minister (and Tribune editor) Aneurin Bevan founded the NHS in the 1940s, Winston Churchill condemned him as a “squalid nuisance.”
That summation, by Churchill in British Conservative circles, has never changed, however Bevan's work has so much prevailed since that time as a
kingpin of the populous of the UK. Nevertheless Conservative governments since then have been systematic in policy to deconstruct the NHS, which is
/was highly regarded as a model of a service for everyone...or rather was.
For years here in the UK people have been saying that the NHS is underfunded, and that is a truism that the UK has been ignoring in the commercial
pleasantries of being part of the EU, which has been very successful in that area, except that the, 'open borders' created a lot of xenophobia, that
in many areas was simply unjustifed, other than personal bias about jobbing, and racial fears.
Now, we have Boris tonight, talking about overwhelming the NHS, (ahich would be our fault..you and me) I forget how many times he used that phrase, to
box people in without any thought, when the same guy is part of a concerted movement to destroy the NHS, and has been since the NHS was contructed all
those years ago, and especially since the last decade when funding the NHS was part of the issue of the banking crisis...the NHS lost out big time in
the aftermath, so they don't have enough ventilators..of course they haven't, probably didn't have enough before Coronavirus anyway..even after just
doing a big Boris deal..taxpayer money, ahem, with the private sector for the use of their ventilators, staff doctors etc.
So, let's get back to the virus itself,
In 2015, there is no doubt that a very controversial experiment took place, it was a international one,

So, what were they doing? research as to how they could neutralise a virus? or create a weapon of war...these are very dark areas to get into, but
it's all there to enable browsing.
But start here first, I posted it before secondhand from AndyFromMichigan's thread, but it was ignored mostly,
Andy's thread was very detailed in the link written by Mark Oliver, who also writes for 'The Guardian' newspaper, and no matter what..has to make you
have considerations you might not want to consider.
