The Punishment of the People Never Ends: England Enters New National Lockdown

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


As the British government announced a new round of lockdown steps for the populace, David Icke spoke out to the cameras and crowd concerning his take on the lockdown, face masks and constant victimization of the public by the individuals in power, calling for everyone to stand firm against the next lockdown.
 

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has announced a new national lockdown for England, with the latest restrictions open to being eased starting on 2 December 2020. His stated reason? To prevent a “medical and moral disaster” for the NHS (National Health Service). 
 
Per a BBC News report, here are some of the latest UK lockdown restrictions which will be enforced by police and affect over 66 million people..
 
  • People are being told to stay at home unless they have a specific reason to leave, such as work which cannot be done from home and education
  • Schools, colleges and universities can stay open
  • People are also allowed to leave home for exercise medical reasons, food and other essential shopping and providing care for vulnerable people or for volunteering
  • Meeting indoors or in private gardens will not be allowed
  • But individuals can meet one other person from another household outside in a public place
  • Pubs, bars, restaurants and non-essential retail across the nation will close but takeaways and click-and-collect shopping can remain open
  • Leisure and entertainment venues, including gyms, will also close
  • Construction sites and manufacturing workplaces can remain open
  • People are still allowed to form support bubbles or extended households
  • Children can move between homes if their parents are separated
  • Clinically vulnerable people are asked to be “especially careful” but people are not being asked to resume shielding
 
 
During this four week period, the furlough system will be extended through November 2020 to continue paying 80 percent of employee wages.
 
“As of September 20, 2020, approximately 9.6 million jobs, from 1.2 million different employers, were furloughed in the United Kingdom as part of the government’s job retention scheme. The scheme (government grant) introduced in response to the economic damage caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, covers 80 percent of an employee’s usual monthly wage, up to 2,500 pounds a month.” 
 
During the earlier lockdown period, one British business owner, Frances Bishop, founder of the children’s retail chain The Pud Store, said a big problem for stores was they are allowed to be open, but customers are not allowed to go out, so footfall has “fallen off a cliff”. Under the current lockdown, non-essential shops will not be permitted to remain open.
 

Changes on the 2020 Retail Landscape

 
Small businesses within a community live on the foot traffic which walk into their shops and restaurants every day, and this continuing lockdown situation has stopped all that because people (customers) are being told to stay home. Some businesses have been able to implement changes which keep their products and services before the public in different ways while providing ‘safe’ access for all. But other businesses have not found a way to remain in the public eye and are suffering greatly. The pandemic lockdowns will continue to radically alter the small business landscape all around the world, and permanently change the entire distribution model for products small and large.
 
For retailers, November and December triggers seasonal item sales and holiday planning, but this year the pandemic and the continued lockdown situation is crushing many businesses to the point of no return. October saw an increase in retailers beginning to advertise holiday items early, hoping to grab the attention of customers and start them spending. The lockdown has even changed how some businesses are handling Black Friday, changing it from a single day of frantic buying to envelop the entire month of November. Amazon started their Black Friday specials on 26 October and Home Depot will offer their deals all through November and December. These shifts in selling will force other companies to follow suit in order to compete and sell their products during the 2020 holiday season if they want their businesses to stay alive.

    • Fake News = The False Prophet

      Unfortunately it will have to get much much worse before anything like that happens. I’ve got more faith in Trump than the British people.

    • Fake News = The False Prophet

      Although they have stopped football match attendance and started to target alcohol sales. These are the kind of things that WILL get their attention.
