UK police are enforcing these lockdowns as as a way to condition the masses.
Problem (Covid, Lockdowns, Masks), reaction (protests, riots, loss/closures of business) and solution (vaccine, vaccine, vaccine).
This way, the masses will be ready when the “voluntary” vaccine arrives which is far from voluntary. Big government, Big Pharma and Big Business will make sure that this “solution” is mandatory using old fashioned coercion.
Wanna Fly? Vaccinate!
Wanna Bank? Vaccinate!
Wanna see a concert? Vaccinate!
