We look at what it takes to be a leader and how some people like Boris Johnson are blessed with a Teflon coat so nothing sticks. It is the court jester phenomenon. The antiestablishment. However the original idea of the Court Jester was an important part of the Sovereign's court as he was the only person allowed free speach to criticise the King (or Queen) in order to ground them and remind them they are not Gods. But being an object of ridicule themselves (with less perceived responsibility ...

Mental Health in lock-down is actually an acceleration of the decline over the last 20-30 years. The Royal College of Psychiatry raised a sentinel flag that something was up with their defeat depression campaign in the 1990s. Since then even up to 2 years ago there are papers published in the Lancet saying that depression continues to be a major ep…
 
We are a failing civilisation, we are on the plateau of the sine wave that defines the progress of most entities which develop grow and fail. So far we have followed it to the letter. Slow start, then sudden exponential growth followed by a plateau which is where we are now followed by precipitous fall. The driving force and inspiration for the asc…
 
Imperial College with the best minds in the world came up with two models about lock-down , applied one to UK data and the other to US data. The UK model shows lock-down saved 3 million lives -and published it in Nature and the US model shows it has no effect. If you apply the model sent to the US to the UK data you also are left with the result th…
 
We humbly ask you our audience to decide for yourselves whether practice is finally living up to the the old maim or at least heading that way with our latest podcast. As far as corona virus and vaccines are concerned we speak pure science and statistics although we do indulge in carefully weighted opinion of those who should be leading us and prot…
 
Week 60 of flattening the curve... vaccines? Have 2 but still wear masks and restrict travel and pay £500 for PCR tests. Would you have believed this a year ago? Now a pharmaceutical company have come up with a fix for the clots caused by Astra Zeneca vaccine which has killed more young people than corona virus. Of course if the vaccines had been d…
 
The secret of power in a democracy but is it good for us? What does this mean? Surely power to the people is a good thing? Really? In reality the more power to the people the more Marxist we become , the more politically correct and woke and the more homogeneous all groups have to become with any expression of difference especially one of advantage…
 
We are all brain-washed from an early age into thinking that sacrifice now allows you to scale the peaks of enlightened contentment at some point in the distant future. And it is this sense of virtuosity that keeps on driving us through stress and loneliness robbing us of any sense of self awareness with the result that our idealised destination al…
 
For the first time in history a single idea can spin round the globe in seconds and form part of a global narrative. Unfortunately the fertility of the ground for each seed of an idea is inversely related to its veracity such that lies travel 6 times faster than the truth mainly because lies are more shocking than truth. This explains why the Briti…
 
We discuss the evidence for lock-downs causing 3rd waves and more virulent and transmissible variants which will cause an endless feedback loop of need for vaccines. We also mention that fact that all corona vaccines have been released with a temporary 1 year license pending submissions of more data. We are all part of a global experiment. There ar…
 
Nothing much needs to be said about President Biden and his sheer lack of activity and any kind of substance. Clearly making way for Camalla Harris to take over. The only elected official to refuse to salute the military. Good luck to you America. Trump is not looking so bad after all and he probably won the election in reality. We also examine the…
 
Misoginy is becoming a hate crime . However by omission then not including misandry (hate of men) is discriminatory and therefore illegal. In theory. Of course this simply gives women an excuse to be week and for the toxic elements to be offended and make complaints that occupy an already stretched police force. No reasonable person disputes that h…
 
This podcast is about two things: authenticity and what you do with it. Put simply not only do you have to be authentic (and we posit that is Meghan Markle's deficiency) but if you are in a position of responsibility then authenticity comes with an understanding of your duty within that role. (Piers Morgans' deficiency) Pure authenticity aka person…
 
This is an easy answer. Science is surgically narrow in its focus because it has to be exact. Therefore it is up to the leaders of the country to ask the correct questions for answer by the the correct scientists and indeed to consult different experts on the correct questions to answer. So far we have had a tight group of technocrats with computer…
 
We discuss why more people are finding this 3rd lock-down harder to cope with than those that have come before. We also explain that acting out of fear is no excuse for a complete loss of objectivity and professionalism. How would you feel if your elderly father spent the last year of his life in a care home with no contact with his family and died…
 
We discuss why people snitch on their neighbours and of course it is all about empowerment and the ability to exert your position in the social hierarchy. The brutality with which you will do that is predicated by your own sense of inferiority and therefore chip on your shoulder once given that power over others. We also discuss social media and ho…
 
We discuss Euromommo data of excess mortality and how it differs drastically between different European countries and ask the question whether the virus understands the concept of borders and passport control or whether there are other causes for the differences we see.By Topical Talkology Soutzos
 
There is no doubt people have been dying over the last year and that most of these deaths have been labelled as corona with a corresponding drop in other cause mortality. However in many countries excess mortality has not exceeded some previous years. Indeed some European countries have seen flat mortality curves. Additionally we know that corona d…
 
The facts are as follows: Corona Virus has never scientifically been proven to cause any disease at all. Koch's postulates globally accepted for decades as being the pre requisite have never been fulfilled. The PCR test has never been shown to formally identify corona virus rather just a protein sequence found on it but which could equally be found…
 
There are multiple reasons why there is global hysteria over a common cold virus which the CDC states has a mortality under the age of 70 less than influenza. One possible one is media hysteria and social media hysteria forming an exploding narrative. This is then the popular belief through repetition by authority figures and anything else that dif…
 
Everyone be very afraid as your civil liberties are eroded quicker than you could have possibly imagined due to lies and society and the way of life as we know it is destroyed. Forget Brexit deals there will be no economies to worry about. Maybe thats why an extension to the Brexit deadline was never asked for because in reality it was irrelevant. …
 
Current publicly available Office of National Statistics Data of excess mortality including Corona show where there was a late or no lock-down around the world there were high initial peaks of excess mortality but now there are only seasonally normal rises in respiratory infections and deaths. In areas where there was strict lock-down or there was …
 
Corona update: The rate of acceleration of corona deaths was slowing and flattening BEFORE the first lock down. Google mobility data show that as people stopped adhering to lock down and after it was lifted death rate fell exponentially opposite to the rise in mobility. In fact no human behaviour has affected the incidence of corona virus apart fro…
 
We review Ivor Cummins and Mike Yeadon's data presentations and interpretations which almost conclusively via observational data show that corona virus had its peak and was on the way out BEOFRE the first lockdown and is now part of the flora and fauna with almost certain herd immunity. Young people cannot be causing any kind of a peak now because …
 
The statistics are clear. Excess deaths have remained unchanged since May/June this year. The PCR test applied on an industrial scale is unreliable with an unspecified high false positive rate so the more testing of even a healthy population the more false positives masquerading as cases will be found. The apparent rise in covid mortality has exact…
 
Why is there so much disagreement amongst the medical community about Corona Virus? The reason is that there is no clear specific risk along the lines that is being presented to us which can bear logical scrutiny. The average age of a corona virus death is 82.4 years old which is higher than the average life span i.e. the average person cannot expe…
 
Politicians continue to show a singular incompetence to manage any major situation due to media hysteria and a self serving need to stay in power resulting in abrogation of responsibility at every opportunity hiding behind the apron strings of unipolar Aspergian academics largely government funded. We are faced with further nonsensical all consumin…
 
Working from home at first glance releases stressed commuters from their daily grind both the stress and cost of it and gives parents a fighting chance to reliably pick up their kids. It may even give you a sense of autonomy especially with a micromanaging boss. It even in a lot of cases increases productivity. But the rest is all bad, in fact very…
 
Politicians are democratically elected and as such have to be competent at one thing only and that is to get elected. Unfortunately competence in public office is then a matter of chance or in fact even less than that. By that we mean that whenever there is a vested interest then it is likely that that the individual in that position will act accor…
 
We discuss how groups of animals function and how we differ to that in human society in the West. Animals function with power and hierarchy on a zero sum game. Humans in the West function through hierarchies of competence associated with different levels of authority in a non zero sum gameThe way your position in the hierarchy is applied is power a…
 
Victim role is poorly addressed by the current experts but defines one of the core pathologies of current times. It has been touted as not taking responsibility but this is just one of the manifestations. It is the lack of taking meaningful control of your life and anything that is not meaningful and of service to developing you as a person or your…
 
'Woke' has been in use for years and is an adjective used to signify that you have 'woken' to social injustice especially racism. It has rapidly accelerated to assume the synonym of political correctness. It is politically incorrect not to be 'woke'.It is for instance 'woke' to wear masks and 'woke' to take the knee . But what being 'woke' really m…
 
We discuss the concept of nobility both in terms of position in society but more importantly in terms of actions. Noble acts are those with a higher than average moral compass but it is the driver to this which determines whether the person is actually noble. For instance someone who is a binary thinker on the right sift of the Asperges spectrum is…
 
We take a critical look at why racism exists, the idea of erecting and toppling statues and the ultimate irony of Oliver Cromwell the founding father of modern parliament and democracy in the UK. People are idolised by their contemporaries using the standards of the time. It is impossible to say whether that person would have behaved the same way a…
 
In evolutionary terms what is familiar and similar to us we like and what is unfamiliar or dissimilar we do not like. Generally this made sense because something would be familiar if it had not eaten us during our last encounter with it. We are tribal and have been hardwired to favour and relate to members of our own tribe which conferred an evolut…
 
Stress is a symptom associated with loss of control. We all experience it often on a daily basis. Trauma is the outcome when under severe stress either acutely or over a prolonged period of time. At least one third of the population have suffered trauma at some point in their lives. Trauma develops if the event or series of events that led to the s…
 
The Pandemic was on the way out just when panic started, in the case of the UK in early April. This was approximately replicated round the world. Ttherefore response strategy was irrelevant. Lock down or no lockdown made no difference to the duraton of the virus in our communities. Sweden which did not adopt lockdown and went for herd immunity only…
 
The government are starting to squabble amongst themselves as to how best approach this 'pandemic'. They have listened to the wrong experts, in fact it looks like they listened to the first expert who appears to have been some kind of in house on retainer expert Nial Ferguson who has a history of making rather odd projections and believed in his ad…
 
Ethnic minorities especially Black Caribbean males are at highest risk from the Corona Virus. The key here is obesity or comorbidity which is highest in Black males and in ethnic minorities with increased age. The UK has the most diverse and largest mix of these at risk groups in Europe. Corona Virus uses the ACE2 receptor to enter cells and this i…
 
The 1918 pandemic killed more people in a short period of time than all the wars of the 20th century combined. The last recorded case was in 1957. Lock down worked but only until the virus circulated the globe and came back for a second wave. Lock down was effective as it was highly fatal with no super spreaders , in other words lock down of a few …
 
This week statistics coming out of India show that seasonally adjusted mortality is less than normal. The reason is that road traffic accidents in India kill more people than coronavirus. A sobering thought which becomes even more sinister when you consider research published over the last few years that shows that economic collapse actually increa…
 
We show that dealing with a crisis and the effect a crisis has on you is directly related to your attitude and perception and in evolutionary terms those of us who have greatest difficulty dealing with every day life due to high innate anxiety can be most effective in a crisis. We also discuss how 'experts' are often the wrong people to advise on a…
 
We discuss evidence of vested interest of the large pharmas to have an illness for which every single member of society needs to have a vaccine and the fact that the Senate passed litigation indemnity for large pharmas with respect to vaccines. Lock dow is all about stress. Stress is about control. Control comes with routine and structure and plann…
 
We have said from the beginning that a media driven frenzy of panic is not the best way to influence the nation and in turn elected politicians who then listen to academics with unidimensional models that completely neglect equally if not important factors. The fact is that now a projected drop of GDP of 7.5% caused by the lockdown is going to kill…
 
There are many conspiracy theories but even more panic and media hype. The reality is that coronavirus world wide still has not killed as many as normal flu in one year in the UK alone. Given effective modern medical treatment (in this case ventilators) mortality should be about the same as normal flu. Conversely death and suffering from economic c…
 
The statistics of Corona virus indicate that where modern medical care is available then the mortality is no more than the common flu. But in contrast to usual flu those few seriously affected are more likely to need Intensive Care. The higher mortality rates in Italy may reflect an older population where a large proportion also are smokers as well…
 
Corona Virus is in the same family as the common cold. The clear statistics are that mortality rate is not much higher than the flu and may be lower. Those vulnerable to serious illness are the elderly and immunocompromised as with all flus and medics involved in direct care who are likely to be exposed to much higher doses. The main difference is …
 
Harvey Weinstein has finally been convicted. We discuss the paradox of how a bountiful capitalistic permissive society rapidly becomes unequal giving rise to resentment and identity politics and ultimately to the Me Too campaign. A permissive tolerant society is not necessarily the surroundings in which humans will flourish because the main predict…
 
Humans like all animals are hard wired to survive and where life is on the line the quickest response is reflex or instinct which short circuits rational thought. This is the Amygdala Hijack. Most of human behaviour is driven by emotion and has little logic behind it. In addition to this we are tribal and are programmed to respond to structure hier…
