If you want to know if you have caught confirmation bias, read anything by Paul Craig Roberts. Take this “destruction by War or Covid” pill.
In another attempt to get the churchyard project moving again, I have created a spreadsheet where I log only the people mentioned on Filey St Oswald’s headstones, kerbs and stone tablets. Given that roughly a third of graves have no markers reduces the population to about 3,500. In the last couple of weeks I have put in a lot of hours – and recorded details of just 10 stones and 34 people.
With the prospect of being taken out any moment by the Fauci Flu or a nuclear missile, there really isn’t much incentive to continue this work. But I will. I think the exercise it gives my brain ameliorates the damage done to it by the aluminium and barium that has dropped from the sky over the last couple of decades.
Spreadsheets can be dull things but I have tried to spice this one up a little by making it divulge weekly stats – proportions of males and females, those who entered the world and/or left it in Filey, those who drowned, died in other accidents or were killed in wars. The average age of death for each sex may prove to be of interest. With just 20 males and 14 females logged thus far these ages are currently 39 and 58. Three boys failing to reach their first birthday have an impact on such a small sample.
The last time I looked, nineteen people had died of Covid-19 in Filey and Hunmanby. Over a year of lockdown walks, I have only met one person who caught the disease – and have heard already of two people in the town severely damaged by the “vaccines”. I think we will have to get used to many vaccine related deaths that will be blamed on Covid. And, if we don’t take the jab, learning what it is like to be a social outcast or concentration camp inmate. Life under tyranny lacks appeal. It makes a nuclear war seem attractive. (Bang better than whimper.) Either way…
Mark of Man 59 · St Oswald’s Churchyard
Over the last ten years or so, the St Oswald’s Churchyard Project has changed my thoughts about death and dying. I have already used up my biblical span, so it is almost time for me to go. It will be a blessing. But for people much younger, these are dark days, depending on how much you know about Build Back Better and The Great Reset.
I won’t be around when the New World Order is a going concern. But perhaps nobody will be.
I have been waiting for the BBC to bring me news of what is going on in and around Ukraine. Not a mention until yesterday, when more than enough minutes were taken up with commentary and soundbites of an interview with Hunter Biden. Seems a nice young man, with a wonderful dad. The compassion of the UK regime’s propaganda machine can take the breath away. Showing much concern now for the health of Alexei Navalny in his Russian prison – when they have cared not a jot for Julian Assange in a jail much closer to Broadcasting House.
NATO forces from many countries will begin Defender exercises in a few weeks time. What could possibly go wrong? The leaders of the Russian Federation, after years of sanctions and name-calling, are preparing for the worst – and being accused of “aggression” by Western observers.
UK regime figures show that about 700 people have been killed by the safe and effective Covid-19 “vaccines” and almost 500,000 “reactions” have so far been reported on the Yellow Card system. BBC reports of the AstraZeneca blood clotting issue always come with an assertion that a proven link of the five UK deaths to this brand of jab has yet to be established.
War, if it happens in May, will be mostly confined to the northern hemishphere (where the missiles are. A long hot summer then, followed by a long cold nuclear winter everywhere.
If it doesn’t happen, we can enjoy instead the collapse of the global financial system. Kicking off by the end of the year, perhaps earlier.
Then there is the Great Reset – and for that to work as planned, the bell has to toll for almost everyone. Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think.

The UK regime persists in paying the BBC to report daily numbers of new cases of Covid-19 disease and deaths of people “within 28 days of a positive PCR test”.
This observation was made on the gov.uk website some time ago:-
6…fragments of inactive virus can be persistently detected by PCR in respiratory tract samples following infection – long after a person has completed their isolation period and is no longer infectious.
It is no surprise that the Italian government, after reviewing its Covid-19 mortality data, decided that only 12% of reported deaths to date could be atrributed to the Sars-CoV-2 virus.
Deaths in 2021 from or with Covid-19 are routinely added to last years tally but I preferred starting over on January 1st this year, when we were twenty weeks into the “Second Wave”.
After 12 weeks of this year, the Second Wave is almost over. I have used the figures reported on Worldometer for this chart:-
The first deaths attributed to Covid-19 in the UK occurred in Week 10 last year and make too small an impact to register here (0.01% of Expected Deaths from All Causes). If we apply the Italian 12% apportionment to the UK figures, Week Four’s 46.57% (2021) is reduced to 5.59%. An argument can be made that the other 88% should be considered as “Lockdown Deaths”. The next 12 weeks are going to be interesting.
In an article published on the UK Column website a couple of days ago, Iain Davis explains why we must question the Covid 19 mortality statistics.
Wave 44 · Filey Bay
Fifty-four weeks have elapsed since the first death from Covid-19 was recorded in the UK. Since 5 March 2020 a further 125,689 people have died within 28 days of testing positive for the disease. Positivity determined by the base metal standard PCR test is meaningless, making any chart or graph fabricated from Covid data suspect. But, heigh-ho…
The Covid Death figures are taken from Worldometer. The UK Office of National Statistics have offered a provisional figure of 604,045 deaths from all causes for 2020. This is 23,927 fewer than the estimate on which I based some of my Covid charts last year. I divided that larger total into equal daily amounts. I have now taken the weekly ONS figures for deaths by influenza (including Covid) and pneumonia and and applied their “proportions” to the AllCauses to reflect seasonality somwhat.
The chart above shows the UK’s double hump Second Wave lasting twice as long as the First – from around Day 280 last year to Day 76 this year (yesterday).
The curve of the Second Wave may or may not be about to flatten. Whatever, it is going to begin mixing its green colour with last year’s yellow by the weekend.
It is anyone’s guess what this chart will look like in 180 days time.
Warmer weather is coming, so instances of respiratory illness are going to look like Days 220 to 250 last year.
And we now have “the vaccines”. Will these make Covid-19 deaths a thing of the past? All easily accessed reports from the Greatest Vaccinated Nation on Earth point to a rosy future. But “flat-lining” can have two very different meanings when applied to graphs and diseased human beings in hospitals.
There are always more than two sides to a story.
Abstract 72 · A Line in the Sand
The citizens of the United Kingdom learned today from the Tyrant-in-Chief that their very own mutant strain of SARS-CoV-2 was not only 70% more transmissible but also 30% more lethal. However, reasons to be cheerful can be found in James Corbett’s interview with Professor Dolores Cahill, Freedom Airway.
Max Igan pointed me to this interview (from US Pedodent Joe Biden and the Fall of the Republic) and also gave a shout out to Really Graceful’s video on Farmer Gates.
A comment by graystar777 on one of these videos caught my eye.
*If I get vaccinated*:/ Treatment
1.- Can I stop wearing the mask?
2.- Can they reopen restaurants etc and everyone work normally?
3.- Will I be resistant to covid?
– *May be*, but we don’t know exactly, it probably won’t stop you getting it
4.- At least I won’t be contagious to others anymore?
– *No you can still pass it on*, possibly, nobody knows.
5.- If we vaccinate all children, will school resume normally?
6.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?
7.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop disinfecting my hands?
8.- If I vaccinate myself and my grand parents , can we hug each other?
9.- Will cinemas, theatres and stadiums be reopened, after vaccines?
10.- Will the vaccinated be able to gather the community closer?
11.- What is the real benefit of vaccination?
– *The virus may not kill you*.
12.- Are you sure it won’t kill me?
13.- If statistically the virus didn’t kill me anyway … Why would I get vaccinated?”
– To protect others.
14.- So if I get vaccinated, the others are 100% sure I’m not infecting them?
15.- is there liability if I get seriously injured or die?
💥 So it is true that the shot does not give immunity.
Does not eliminate the virus.
Does not prevent death.
Does not guarantee you won’t get it.
Does not prevent you from getting Covid..
Does not stop you passing it on
Does not eliminate the need for travel bans.
Does not eliminate the need for business closures.
Does not eliminate the need for lockdowns.
Does not eliminate the need for masking.
So…Why the hell am I getting vaccinated…. To keep running the pharmaceutical BUSINESS? to help bring in the “Great reset”. Something more nefarious? 🤔

For what they are worth. “With Covid” weekly deaths sourced at Worldometer. I have divided 2018 deaths from all causes (The World Bank)by 52, paying no heed to seasonal fluctuations. As the four countries are assessed in the same way, the “patterns” revealed have some validity. (When the actual 2020 deaths from all causes are reported, I will perhaps create a second set of charts to give a more accurate picture.)
The French second wave is almost as old as the first but still has a way to go before Covid related deaths fall below 2% of expected deaths.
The UK second wave began to rise again in Week 13 – a trend that one would expect if our old friend the winter flu was still around.
Second waves began later in Germany and Sweden and both countries have recently completed their tenth week.
The y-axis is the same for all four charts. Germany’s second wave is the most frightening at first glance but its peak (so far) is the lowest of the quartet. Sweden’s second wave appears to be running out of energy but it could “uptick” UK-fashion.
It should be borne in mind that deaths from all causes in most countries are at or below what would be expected in an average year. Fewer people are dying from the big killers because, for example, heart attack and pneumonia deaths have been routinely and dishonestly ascribed to Covid-19. Hardly anyone has died from old flu since the new kid showed up. In the UK, the number of under sixties without other “health issues” who succumbed to “the rona” is said to be less than four hundred.. Which is why the psychos have invoked mutant Covid strains in the UK and South Africa. When final tallies are made for 2020 I expect more people will have died from lock down, mask-wearing and vaccines than Covid-19.
For what? All will be revealed next year, probably.

A Lufthansa Cargo jet flying over a West Avenue drive-in cinema this afternoon. Trade goods in a McDonnell Douglas MD-11F heading to Chicago from Frankfurt. I don’t know what the film is. (The Greatest Showman was advertised but I’m sure I caught a glimpse of Colin Firth.)
Plucky Brits lined up today to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination against Covid-19 disease. It won’t make recipients immune, it won’t prevent them being asymptomatic spreaders. It will reduce their suffering if they become infected and some may not die from the disease. Time will tell how many will be killed by this or any other Covid vaccine.
The Sputnik 5 vaccine was “rushed out to wary Russians” three days ago. The BBC hasn’t forgiven Vladimir Vladimirovich for not poisoning the Skripals beyond all doubt, (it was just “highly likely”), and one of its journalists reporting from Moscow on Sunday couldn’t help getting a few digs in. She signed off saying that infections in Russia were “rising rapidly”. This may be true but it is dead people who matter when talking about Covid – and Russia has a long way to go to catch up with UK-level fatalities.
The UK “Second Wave” of Covid Deaths began (I decided) on 22 September but the rising number of fatalities took a while to impact the curve. Russia’s rise in Covid fatalities as a percentage of deaths from All Causes is noticeable but not pronounced.
A histogram of the UK’s two Covid Waves shows that the Second appears to have peaked in Week 10. In past “normal years”, the old flu would be preparing to make an entrance now, so it will be interesting to see if its victims are ascribed to the new kid on the block, presenting us with a Third Covid Wave that carries us beyond the 17 week duration of the First.
What difference will the vaccines make?

There is a lot going on in the world that we should be frightened about but the mysterious flu called Covid-19 is not one of them. Julia Hartley-Brewer and Professor Anthony Brookes chatted about it today on talkRADIO (11 minutes).
Here are a couple of graphs based on Covid death totals available on Worldometer. Waves start when deaths attributed to Covid-19 reach 2% of expected daily deaths from all causes. The UK’s First Wave lasted 118 days and Sweden took about 40 days longer to fall back below 2%.
The Second Wave in the UK has a way to go before it is worse than the First. (The ongoing rise has the look and feel of old normal seasonality about it.) The value of common sense and not locking a country down is illustrated by the Swedish experience.

In a few weeks I must flit.
To flit – move house or leave one’s home, typically secretly so as to escape creditors or obligations. Northern English.
My next home is rather small. I have to face the heartache of disposing of at least half of the “stuff” I’ve accumulated over the last thirty-five years. I will start chucking out and packing what survives the cull tomorrow. I should be able to continue posting a Filey photo each day but must put the family history to one side for a while.
If the blog “goes dark” for a few days, I’ll play catch-up when settled in my new home office.
It is very likely that this change of life will result in the blog shifting focus in some way. I’m not planning anything in particular but adapting to a “new normal” is something everyone is faced with now.
It is not all gloom and doom. If you have recently lost your business or job to Covid, there are opportunities being offered by MHRA (The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency). Protecting health and improving lives is booming, it seems. Access your inner boffin – you may be able to answer the following desperate call…
The emphasis has been added by UKC News (first segment in yesterday’s bulletin). This is a UK “government” request hiding behind an EU flag. Good luck, everyone.
