What the Tories really expect – and in a document issued after vaccine roll-out
Tory-run Westminster City Council has issued a request for offers to provide emergency storage facilities for the bodies of those killed in an ‘excess deaths situation’ – as the coronavirus death toll continues to mount despite the fact that schools are still closed for the holidays in most places and in spite of the Tories’ continued exclamations of confidence in the effectiveness of the vaccine programme.
While daily deaths have not yet reached the levels of the worst of the pandemic, they have increased dramatically since Boris Johnson began to lift remaining anti-transmission measures despite the urging of huge numbers of global scientific and medical experts:
And now a Tory-run London council – certainly briefed by Sajid Javid’s Department of Health and Social Care – is advertising for emergency storage capacity for ‘excess death situations’. And it says they will be needed for another four years, giving a clear indication of how long the government really thinks its murderous mismanagement of the pandemic response is going to continue to ‘pile bodies high‘:
This is not the first such tender to be issued during the pandemic. Last year, the Tories quietly tripled mortuary capacity – at the same time as they were claiming that the peak of the pandemic was passed and lifting the first lockdown. More people died in the second wave than in the first.
When Boris Johnson’s lips are moving to claim he cares about the lives of the UK’s people or that he is ‘following the science’, he is lying. Just occasionally, despite the unwillingness of the so-called ‘mainstream’ media to hold the Tories to account or to scrutinise their claims, the truth peeps out in documents such as this.
