We don’t want your App. We don’t want your Lockdown. We don’t want your manipulation or control. We want you to do your job or step aside so others can

There is no evidence that the Lockdown has saved lives from COVID-19 that wouldn’t have been saved anyway, had the Government chosen to deal with the Coronavirus emergency in a different way.

One of the ways that the Government could have acted differently would have been to follow its own advice like South Korea did and use contact tracing as the basis of its response right from the start, when the Virus was not already circulating after touching 1 in 5 of us or possibly more.

To introduce an App and insist that we must all use it now, will, like the Lockdown, cause much more harm than good.

Coronavirus is everywhere. It is just not affecting everyone in the same way, and of many it is as if the Virus is just passing them by.

To begin policing contact with COVID-19 and treating it like it would be an absolute is foolish at best and wholly malevolent at worst.

The reality is that an App can no longer tell you where the Virus may or may not have come from. It could be on a doorway, a shopping trolley, the pint of milk you pick up or even just floating by in the air.

People who download and use this App voluntarily will quickly become the slaves of its use.

The monitoring will be just like having big brother in your pocket. It could very quickly become a way to provide documentary evidence to the authorities which will be used to keep us locked up on nothing more than the basis of our own honesty, when the accuracy or fidelity of the original information we give them with the intention of helping others may not be in any way accurate and cannot be relied upon fairly in any way. It is not impossible that many could be permanently locked-down in complete quarantine as a result.

The Government doesn’t know what it is doing now any more than it did do when this travesty and the COVID-19 Pandemic began.

The refinement of social distancing and use of false hope in the form of technology that can and so almost certainly will be used for purposes other than what we are being advised are just further ways that Politicians are attempting to control our behaviour and the way that we are responding to their handling of Coronavirus because it is something that they have no way to control.

The only way to get out of this now is to stop pretending that all these devices such as the Lockdown, Social Distancing, the number of Tests they can do each day and now the Smartphone App, can actually bring an and to a problem that needs to be managed and not held back until it can be fully solved.

The Country needs to go back to work and to be allowed to live life as best as people can. And if the Government cannot accept this and stop trying to control us in every way because it can, rather than admitting it cannot control the things that it can’t, it should step aside once and for all and allow us to put in place the people to lead us who can and will.

Getting through and out the other side of the financial catastrophe that will be here very soon is not something that can be dealt with by politicians who are so insecure that they are obsessed with our control.

The Johnson Government created the crisis that is coming and they should stop trying to blag their way through it by compromising our liberty and our lives as they do.

Using contact tracing with smartphones as the green light to end the Lockdown is dystopian measure and would consolidate the police state we are already in

You can see that there is value in contact tracing for those affected by Coronavirus – or at least there would have been if the Government had set out to do this first of all.

With COVID-19 clearly now circulating at will throughout the population, there really is limited scope to achieve anything from trying to manage the spread of Coronavirus by monitoring contact and spread, unless it is of course just another excuse and part of the Government’s propaganda parade.

Worryingly, the Health Secretary has hinted that the Lockdown will not end until contact tracing can be carried out universally. To do so is just another attempt by a Government on borrowed time attempting to bolt the stable door after the horse has already bolted.

Worse still, the suggestion in the media that the Government may attempt to utilise smartphones to monitor contact throughout the population hints that there may be something far more sinister and darker at work in their approach or to fear from yet another thing they may be about to do without thinking it through.

With the UK already experiencing a police state – albeit in good humour because so far it’s been sold as a way to save life and labelled like it is still voluntary for us all in some way – it will take very little on the part of the Government or the Public Sector to misuse their trust and responsibility further and push down on the population of this Country very hard indeed.

The collection of data in this way and the opportunities to grab highly personal information in a much wider and potentially damaging way is not something that any of us should readily agree to – particularly when there is going to be no benefit to the fight against COVID-19 – no matter what the Government tells us.

The fairest and most sensible way to collect data on who has had Coronavirus would be to utilise the Government Portal and make it obligatory for everyone who has the illness to register that they have it, and issue a unique reference number to each person registered that they must then use to access COVID-19 sick pay or anything else related to whatever claim they might have.

This is the best way to get real data about who has, who has had and who hasn’t had Coronavirus that the Government can access legitimately using a system that already exists and will therefore cost very little to adapt of change for this use.

Sadly, the reality that our Politicians have no concept of cause, effect and the law of consequences and always choose the complicated solutions rather than the simple ones as they should, means that there is little or no mileage for a way of working that will help others but not make them look good themselves.

The Lockdown needs to end NOW and the Government should not be looking to continue with a Lockdown at any level, when it has, had and continues to have a much better choice.

Our freedoms are genuinely at risk with these Politicians in charge and we should all be thinking carefully about the choices we continue to make in respect of supporting a Government in the process of throwing us off a cliff whilst we still have the choice.
