Back to Normal

Britain Won’t Return to Normality This Year, Says Chris Whitty

Whether or not ‘Freedom Day’ takes place on July 19th, we won’t truly return to normal until at least next spring, says Chris Whitty, warning that it is “going to take quite a long time to get back to normality”. The MailOnline has the story.

England’s Chief Medical Officer hinted that some curbs may have to be rolled back later this year when the NHS faces a “difficult winter”.

But, in a glimmer of hope[!], Professor Whitty claimed he anticipated that the U.K. could return to the “status quo” by next spring. 

However, he admitted that he would be “surprised” if British life managed to return to pre-Covid normality before then, adding it was “going to take quite a long time to get back to normality”.

Covid hospital admissions and deaths are expected to rise in the weeks and months after July 19th, when all social distancing measures are due to be lifted in England.

Officials are also bracing for a rise in other respiratory illnesses that have been suppressed by lockdown measures during the pandemic, such as flu. 

But it’s hoped enough people will have been vaccinated or protected due to prior infection by next spring that the coronavirus will no longer trigger a deadly surge.

Speaking to the Local Government Association’s annual conference, Professor Whitty said: “There will almost certainly be a Covid surge [in winter] and that will be on top of a return to a more normal respiratory surge. 

“It’s going to take quite a long time, I think, to get back to normality and I certainly would be surprised if we got back to what most of us would see as a kind of status quo – before the pandemic – by the next spring.

“Because I think we’ve got this current wave, hopefully there will be a period of quieter Covid after that, and then it will still be quite a difficult winter, especially for the NHS – then by next spring I’m hoping slightly more into a more predictable pattern.”

Can the Anti-Lockdown Forces Unite in a Political Coalition?

We’re publishing a guest post today by Geoff Cox, co-founder of the campaign group Back to Normal, calling for the various anti-lockdown political parties to form a front populaire and take on pro-lockdown candidates in elections. Back to Normal delivers easy to understand, anti-lockdown postcards directly to households across the country. Their target is to deliver one million postcards and they’re currently up to 700,000.

I can’t say we at Back to Normal entirely predicted the course of events over the last 18 months, but it was always clear to us that the covid nonsense would eventually run out of steam. Then, we would have a new fight on our hands to undo all the left-over legislation and restore our freedoms. At the same time globalists and new authoritarians would be coming up with new reasons for more legislation and big state over-reach.

I suspect that time may have arrived. But even if it hasn’t, it will arrive in due course and we must consider our next steps. I suggest our side joins together to take a broader libertarian stance, standing up for free speech v cancel culture, for a free internet v censorship, for privacy v the surveillance state, and so on. We must look to the future as next time the Government comes for us, they will be better prepared, more confident and will operate to greater effect.

Pressure groups can only do so much to change the Government’s mind about anything that globalists and unelected ‘experts’ demand. Furthermore, short of reading and commenting, there is little that grass roots activists and members of the public can do to support these groups. But the globalists have an even bigger weakness at grass roots level and this is one area where we can outflank them.

I’ve never been on a campaign that has so many good people on our side – spokesmen for “our movement” will not be hard to come by. Nor are we short of social media outlets where a huge spike in entrepreneurial activity to combat the Covid narrative has produced more websites and videos than we can shake a stick at. We also have some fair-minded broadcasting outlets, such as UK Column and GB News, where we can set out our stall. But what we do not yet have is a political movement to take votes away from pro-lockdown politicians at elections. Everyone knows this is a hard thing to do, but it is part of the process and we must threaten politicians at the ballot box. I had hoped one of the new political parties would have emerged as a front runner by now. But this has not happened. So I appeal to Reclaim, Reform, Freedom Alliance, Heritage, and the others to actively find ways to merge. If this can happen, Back to Normal is ready to support and run a local group network for this merged political party. We would like to speak to any of the political parties about this right now.

In the meantime, we are continuing to deliver postcards door to door promoting ivermectin, as this really will end the Covid cover story and prevent it ever coming back. Please order your box (or more) of Back to Normal ivermectin cards and join our local group network by emailing, or contact us through the website

New Postcard From Back To Normal Promotes Ivermectin

The anti-lockdown group Back to Normal, which campaigns by delivering postcards door to door by hand – and has delivered over half a million to date – has produced a new postcard (see above). Geoff Cox, one of the organisers of Back to Normal, explains what it’s about:

To take advantage of not having to talk about lockdowns (for the moment), Back to Normal are teaming up with the growing number of medical and scientific voices calling for Ivermectin to become the drug of choice in combating COVID-19. If we can bring this to the attention of doctors, MPs and the general public, there will be no excuse for governments around the world to ignore it any longer. This is a win/win for us as either governments will use Ivermectin and the Covid crisis is over, or they don’t and it will be confirmed that governments are working to a different agenda.

If you are not yet up to speed with Ivermectin, The Ivermectin Story is a shortish video which will show you why we are so excited about this development.

‘Back to Normal’ Supports Anti-Lockdown Candidates in May Elections

There follows a guest post by Geoff Cox, one of the organisers of the Back to Normal postcard campaign. Back to Normal aims to deliver one million postcard summarising the case against lockdowns and has already dispatched more than 400,000.

With the chance to make a complaint through the ballot box approaching, now is the time to order our new postcard and deliver them to houses throughout the country. Email us and order a box or two of our Back to Normal postcards; deliver them in the spring sunshine and get a bit of free vitamin D as a bonus.

We are not back to normal and we must register our complaint in the May elections. If not, the Government and Opposition will take it that the electorate approves of their destructive lockdown policy. Our postcard supports any sceptical candidate whether they are standing for one of the new Parties (Heritage, Reclaim, Reform, Freedom Alliance, etc.) or as an Independent.
