A feminist researcher has revealed that the UK Liberal Democrats received significant financial support from a firm which makes puberty-blocking drugs ahead of the 2019 British elections.
Jean Hatchet, who investigated political donations to the Lib-Dems via the Electoral Commission website, tweeted out the results early this month, finding that since July 2018, the party received over £334,000 from Ferring Pharmaceuticals, including £100,000 in November in the run-up to the general election.
In total, the company has donated over £1.4 million since 2012.
Ferring Pharmaceuticals is a Swiss-based firm which produces the chemical Triptorelin, which is used in the forms of Diphereline and Gonapeptyl as a puberty blocker for young girls to begin the process of transitioning. The instructions for Gonapeptyl state that it should only be started in girls under 9 years and boys under 10, far below the age that a person should be at to understand and consent to such a permanently altering and destructive decision.
These generous donations may have affected the Lib-Dems’ political stances. Shortly before the election, leader and former MP Jo Swinson tweeted out promises to “recognize non-binary identities,” “introduce an ‘X’ gender option on passports and extend equality law to cover gender identity and expression,” and require schools to implement “gender-neutral uniform policies” and “break down outdated gender stereostypes [sic] of certain subjects.”
Swinson led the Lib-Dems to a disastrous election performance which led to her losing her seat and stepping down as party leader, after they secured only 11 seats in the 650 seat Parliament, one less than in 2017.
The party’s platform centered on being outspokenly Remain and anti-Brexit, pledging not to fulfill the promise made to the British people after their historic vote to leave the EU, but to cancel the process entirely.
This distinguished them from the Conservatives, whose leader Boris Johnson pledged to “get Brexit done;” and Labour, which under Jeremy Corbyn unsuccessfully attempted to avoid a hard stance on the issue.
The results of the December 2019 election were a blowout win for the Conservatives, who won their largest majority since Thatcher was in power, and a crippling blow to Labour, which suffered a defeat of similarly historic proportions.
The resurgence of the mainstream right in the UK during an election widely interpreted as a referendum on accomplishing Brexit, as well as a popular revolt against the cultural and racial Marxism of the left, is a sign that the British people are thoroughly fed up with parties such as the Lib-Dems which do not represent their interests and seek to push destructive cultural revolution on their families and children.
For just two examples, Conservative PM Theresa May utterly failed to fight to deliver Brexit, and despite years of Conservatives in power, the NHS currently offers gender transitions to children as young as 3 years old.
If they do not deliver now that they have been handed a historic opportunity to do so, the people of the UK will have to begin looking elsewhere.
Canadian Police Report Almost 2,200 Home Visits To Monitor Quarantine Compliance
Canadian police officers reportedly have conducted almost 2,200 home visits to ensure travelers into the country are complying with quarantine rules.
In late March, the Canadian government announced the start of the Quarantine Act, which mandates that anyone entering the country, with the exception of essential workers like truck drivers and those in healthcare, must self-isolate for 14 days.
Failure to comply can incur a fine of up to $750,000 and/or six months in prison. However, so far there have been no arrests, and only one fine of $1,000.
Still, many may find unsettling the degree to which the Canadian police, in coordination with official border and health services, are enforcing a nanny state by paying home visits to incoming travelers deemed at risk of non-compliance. In addition, prime minister Justin Trudeau has hinted that even tougher measures could be coming, even once Canada begins easing cross-border travel.
Also in late March, the Trudeau government announced a halt to all immigration in order to slow the spread of the coronavirus. However, current immigration applications would not be closed or denied due to failure to meet typical requirements.
Still, many pointed out that Canada’s response was actually stronger than the US’, which has continued to import thousands of H-1B workers even while under lockdown due to a global pandemic.
The border between the US and Canada has been closed since the end of March, and this was recently extended, likely into mid-June. Trudeau has stated that the closure and its extension were implemented with full cooperation from the US.
While travel into Canada has not stopped completely, it has fallen drastically since the implementation of restrictive policies. However, critics of the government question whether Trudeau reacted quickly enough, and argue that the policy going forward is too vague and requires more explanation and accountability.
As stated by Conservative MP Pierre Paul-Hus:
“It was the Trudeau government’s failure to close our borders that allowed the virus to spread in the first place. It is incumbent on the Trudeau government to explain how they plan to ensure that travelers who are coming back to Canada are not spreading COVID-19… Unfortunately, right now the Trudeau government is telling Canadians to ‘wait and see’ without explaining what metrics they are relying on to make decisions.”
While Canada is doing significantly better than the US in terms of the number of cases, one tragically sobering area in which it has exhibited clear failure is the fate of its elderly, particularly those in state and private long-term care institutions.
It is estimated that up to 86% of the Canadian death toll is from facilities such as long-term care, retirement, and corrections, with the first two making up the large majority. In one privately-run nursing home, as much as one third of residents have died from coronavirus.
While the situation is complex and there are few countries that do not seem to have significant problems with their approach, it is clear that something is wrong with Canada’s. Perhaps the government should focus more on taking care of its elderly than intrusively monitoring its citizens.
