The Johnson narrative is creating division because it impractically hinges on Zero COVID. The problems we now face are inevitable, but change was always the post-COVID way

So, the latest news is Boris Johnson has swerved questions on what happens when people simply switch off Test & Trace – as they are already doing – once the doors have been opened fully on the 19th of July.

The answer to this question is quite simple. There isn’t one. Or at least not for Boris Johnson anyway.

Boris’ problems began when the Johnson Government’s COVID narrative was first created in March 2020.

Listening to and prioritising the myopic ramblings of so-called specialists suddenly given their moment in the limelight, Boris deliberately unleashed a tsunami of behavioural manipulation. One based on the absolutes of Zero Covid or 100% freedom. There was never any middle way.

Ever since this horrific chapter began, intelligent people have been falling over themselves to explain the logic and motivation underpinning Lockdowns, Social Distancing and the measures taken by the Johnson Government that cannot be explained in any logical or rational way.

Most of this anti-Lockdown reasoning is based on conspiracy theories. The theories have gained credibility because the actions and behaviour of the Government have consistently fitted the pathways of change that a growing range of conspiracies propose.

The unpopular, too-simple-to-believe – but nonetheless real version of events is that this Country is being run by people who simply do not know what they’re doing and should never have found their way in to roles with responsibility for the lives of others in the way that they have.

The original and long standing COVID narrative was based on a very insular and self-serving view. It immediately entrenched the Government position, simply because we are being ‘led’ by ‘leaders’ who do not know how to lead. Self-styled politicians who are terrified of deviating away from any decision they have previously made because they believe it will reflect badly in the media and affect their future in an equally negative way.

From the moment that Boris committed to Lockdowns and Social Distancing measures as the way to address the COVID Pandemic, he effectively committed himself, his Party and this Parliament to taking an ongoing position where no light will shine upon any alternative way.

Watching Boris speak at Monday afternoons No.10 press conference was cringeworthy. You could see that the man who wanted to be world king as a boy has trapped himself by weaponising a very dangerous form of rhetoric that pushed millions of people into a false system of belief. Fear is now guiding the way of millions of us and positive counter-messaging runs completely counterintuitively to everything they now believe and say.

The true scale and scope of the Covid Pandemic and the legacy that we are going to have to face and live with is still not apparent to many people because of the way that Covid ‘messaging’ has been deliberately manipulated and the financial response to Lockdowns have been handled by this Government.

Boris set the Country up to fail when he allowed medical specialists, experts and scientists to frame COVID not as in illness that would quickly become endemic and something that we would have to learn to live with – as it had, but rather as a virulent disease akin to something like the Black Death that was an existential threat to everything we know and everything that exists.

As I wrote in my last blog, the watershed moment when vaccination had achieved everything that it realistically could has long since being passed. Yet to hear people speak and communicate across the media, it is clear to see that many believe that nothing as actually changed since the Pandemic began. Many people have been conditioned so effectively by the narrative that they believe COVID is still the same risk as it was first presented to us by Boris and the people around him 16 months ago.

We are being presented with many personal stories that pull on the heart strings, telling us that our failure to wear masks in public from 19th July will be to the detriment of those individuals and whatever their particular struggle with life may be in some way. Yet there is a complete absence have understanding, thought or feeling for the ways that everyone else’s life has been turned upside down by the Government’s handling of the COVID Pandemic – typically in very damaging ways that nobody else will ever see or believe.

Boris Johnson will never voluntarily admit that the COVID Pandemic should have been handled differently from the start. He will not agree that COVID is something that we were always going to have to live with and not run away from. Because running away is the poorest form of leadership and where real problems with significant and damaging consequences for others always start.

The Johnson Government Policies for handling the Covid pandemic and supporting people and businesses during Lockdowns whilst they couldn’t work has already had massively damaging effects on the lives of many different people. Yet the impacts will only continue to grow and contribute to making what was always going to be a very different post-Covid world, more difficult for us to experience and live with than it really should or could have been.

Using up our energy and focus on what the Johnson Government is still doing or what it has done is not a valuable use of time. The Government will not change its approach or look differently upon any decisions these politicians have made. To them, everything revolves around how snd when the next General Election will be won.

The reality we face is that the World around us is already changing and in ways that no government strategist could predict. Things are not going to look like they did for us before Covid, and the effects of the changes that are coming are going to give a different feel to life for everyone.

The COVID variants will keep on coming and the UK population will remain at continual threat of Lockdowns for as long as borders remain ‘open’ and people continue to pressure for global and air travel to be available in anything like the way that it previously was.

The financial impact of Government overspending and the misuse of money to address every Government problem during the Pandemic is going to contribute in no small part to a monetary firestorm which will precipitate an entirely different way of thinking. Not because of the grand and impractical plans of some New World Order. But because decades of financial mismanagement –  sped up by the response to Covid – is about to create a situation where it is the only thing that Governments or rather those who are then leading us can do.

Globalism as we knew it is over. The priorities that lead businesses to exist and the motives underpinning how they operate will change drastically. We are going to return to a genuine form of localism that revolves around community. One that works effectively through the comprehensive use of the most localised supply chains possible. Small, agile, local supply chains that will work profitably because profit will be judged as the benefit it gives to everyone, rather the financially gained profits that can be achieved by just a few.

Boris, the Conservative Party behind him, Starmer and the Labour Party, the Lib Dems, Reclaim, Reform UK or anyone who believes they can control this political system so that they and their own ideas win aren’t going to tell you or talk to you about this, because the mechanics of the wheels that are now turning and moving forward towards the end of this self-centred political age are not something that they either acknowledge or are even trying to understand.

Change is inevitable and it will be for the better for everyone in the long term – no matter the narrative or what anyone on the TV, your phone or computer tells us. It doesn’t belong to these politicians and it never has.
