Peter Hitchens is a rare and courageous voice in these desparate and dark times:
https://hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/

Here is my assessment of the situation we find ourselves in:

We’ve had months of unjustified house arrest of the innocent by the “experts”, who at best, give signs of contradicting and stumbling incompetence.
Our mental health, together with our physical health, are constantly under attack by a mainstream media (MSM) and government announcements that give every indication of their taking great pleasure in the work of undermining our sanity by creating ridiculous levels of fear in the minds of the masses.
Our once happy families are antisocially distanced under threat of police enforcement action (we are now threatened by Government that the Army may also be deployed against us); we are commanded to hide our faces behind home-made masks cut from old T-shirts. Our children and grandchildren have lost many months of their education, they’ve lost months of essential social interactions and healthy outdoor exercise; many of the children’s faces now carry the empty-eyed expressions brought on by constant fear. We are denied access to doctors, dentists, opticians and hospital A & E. All enjoyment from the ordinary things of life have been taken from us by a government that gives every indication of being out of control, and at the same time obsessed with the total control of every minutia of our private lives; shopping has become a nightmare experience to be avoided at all costs; politically deprived normal conversation between separated friends and families is creating destructive stresses in our previously functional society; day trips to the open countryside for re-creation are made impossible for those who can’t urinate behind a bush or tree because of severe restrictions to public toilets, many car parks remain closed; impromptu visits to a cafe/restaurant are banned by order of the all-controlling political class.

Under this house arrest, that has no end-date (even convicted prisoners have to be given a release date), many of us have little meaningful contact with family, friends, or even casual contacts with like-minded people. Locked in our homes we are expected to be reliant on a MSM and government announcements for daily contact with other voices of reason, unfortunately the MSM and government announcements are no substitute for genuine and healthy contact with real and rational human beings. As for truth, the MSM and political class have gone to great lengths by their constant changes of opinions and recommendations as to declare themselves foolish in the extreme. They speak of “following the science”, when, I suspect, very few of them would be able to define what since is. Some real doctors and medics (scientists), including virologists of high repute, who have bravely spoken out against the official ‘science’ of government and their “experts”, have lost their jobs, or have been silenced, they’ve had their videos and scientific papers removed from the internet by politically inspired censorship. Why?

The UK economy is now very effectively in tatters, businesses are about to close permanently, unemployment will likely finally exceed that of the great depression of the 1930s. The health of this nation is about to decline to a standard that the majority of us have never experienced. But the end is not in sight yet. The latest political mantra is; a second wave of CV-19 is coming; it’s PM Johnson's big fear apparently. This is the same Johnson who desires to be a Churchillian leader; there is no way that the real Mr Churchill would have capitulated to fear in the way that this PM has. We shan’t be fighting this latest threat on the beaches, fields, valleys, hills, and mountains whilst refusing to surrender to a murderous foe under this current leadership; for us it is to be interminable house arrest and hiding behind home-made face coverings cut from old T-shirts, whilst antisocial distancing is the cry from the current science-following leadership.

How is it that we’ve been so easily cowed by a very suspect threat from a corona virus, a virus that shares similar characteristics as those of a the family of a viruses similar to the common cold and annual flu? What has happened to Britannia, the Britannia “that will never be slaves”? During the real Mr Churchill’s leadership of this once united and brave nation, the King called for days of prayer, a call for deliverance by Almighty God from a very deadly foe; under the current pseudo-Churchillian leadership the churches are closed, and if open are only permitted to gather in very small numbers of persons, then only if muzzled by masks made from old T-shirts, where singing praises to Almighty God are also outlawed. But prayer from those who truly trust in Jesus Christ for salvation and eternal life in Him, cannot be prevented by Government orders, nor by house arrest.

Our situation is desperate, this evil needs to be recognised for what it is, this nation is close to being finished as a nation of freedom-loving and brave people. It is time to bend the knee to the Lord Jesus Christ in repentance, to call upon Him for mercy and deliverance, to seek His glory in manifestations of His grace, power and salvation.

A professor who views the current situation similarly to myself:

It's long past the time when this government should govern in a way that is for the best of the whole country and its economy, and not in the way that benefits the likes of Bill Gates and his heavily funded vaccine enthusiastic elitist academic colleagues .
