Countries under the Covid cosh (3)

The Isle of Man – “lost in the Irish Sea”

There is a catchy folk song called the Ellan Vannin Tragedy about an Isle of Man Steam Packet boat which sank in 1909 killing all on board. This song written by Hughie Jones of the Spinners tells the story of the fateful tragedy, the last line of the chorus ending in “lost in the Irish Sea”. It is starting to look, post Covid, like the Isle of Man itself is lost in the Irish Sea. Other names for the Isle of Man are Mona’s Isle and in Manx: Ellan Vannin.

As with other countries under the Covid cosh this beautiful island, described to me in the nineteen seventies as “70,000 people clinging to a rock”, has been persecuted more than any of the British Isles during the so-called “pandemic”. It claims to have autonomy having its own government and the oldest continuous parliament in the world, Tynwald. The autonomy is a partial sham. It is a Crown colony and on big issues the Isle of Man does as it’s told. It’s residents do as they’re told.

Punishment can be pleasure

Masochists might tell you that punishment is a pleasure. Not wishing to digress into the realms of Freudian psychology I suggest that most people do not get pleasure from punishment. However, in the Isle of Man there has been a history of harsh punitive measures that the populace has largely embraced – providing they were not on the receiving end of the punishment.

Birching, a medieval practice which originally involved removing a child – or adult’s – trousers and delivering up to 12 lashes (Manx law allowed 20) with an instrument of torture comprising thick bound branches of birch, continued in the Isle of Man until 1978, being formally abolished in 1993. It took an intervention from the European Court of Human Rights to bring the practice to an end.

Covid resurrects harsh punishment

When harsh punishment has been a practice for centuries a compliant populace can easily be coerced into accepting practically any amount of abuse as normal without question or complaint. This is similar to the abused partner in a relationship remaining in the relationship even though the abuse is unlikely ever to stop. As pointed out in the first of the Countries under the Covid cosh:

Sparsely-populated countries in comparison to their geographical size are easy meat in this experiment.

Insular regions, cut off from neighbouring countries, are already geographically isolated, and none more so than the Isle of Man. The Irish Sea separates Mona’s Isle from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England, and abuses – like birching – can go on almost unnoticed elsewhere in the world. That may well be why the Isle of Man is able to treat its citizens as second-class minions. One would like to think this would never be tolerated in England but the obvious joys of wearing masks; not having to visit sick relatives; being prohibited from attending their funerals when dear ones die; embracing the luxury of being confined to the family home; not being able to go to a sporting event; not having to join one’s irksome “friends” for a pint and ecstatic escape from reality and the humdrum cares of life by having an untested, genetically-modified and poisonous substance pumped into a compliant person’s upper-arm, all contributed to a reassessment of my former faith in good old English commonsense.

The Isle of Man witnessed so few Covid-attributed deaths in 2020 it beggars belief that the whole population would be coerced into taking what have been succinctly, and accurately, described as “clot-shots” to combat a virus so generally benign.

Covid-19 deaths in the Isle of Man

Sometimes less is more, or so they say. They also say that a picture is worth a thousand words. So here is a minimalist chart, easy to understand for the vast majority, concerning deaths from Covid-19 in the Isle of Man up to the start of the second shot.

The source of this WHO graph is Trading Economics.

The first death on the island was on 1 April 2020. Within a month it had escalated to more than 20 and an announcement was made that:

“There have now been a total of 17 deaths in the community and 6 in hospital.”

Isle of Man Government statement: 6.10 pm, 4 May 2020

By 15 May it was 18 deaths in the community and 6 in hospital. These statements do not tell the whole story. There is a shameful omission in the way the Manx government has presented these figures. Twenty of those deaths came from one location – a care home.

Abbotswood Nursing Home, Ballasalla

In all of the Isle of Man government official statements of death related to Covid-19 I can find no mention of Abbotswood Nursing Home. Obviously it was mentioned in press statements but the only locations referred to on government Covid pages were “hospital” and “community”. The word “community” gives the impression of deaths being ubiquitous in the general population. That is very misleading.

While the government – on whose advise it can only be guessed – carefully hid the 20 deaths at Abbotswood, the local newspapers and Manx Radio went big on the story.

On 9 April 2020, Sian Cowper of Manx Radio, interviewed the chief nurse and director of Abbotswood Nursing Home, Zandra Lewis. At that time it was a private nursing-home situated about half way between Douglas and Ronaldsway Airport in the village of Ballasalla. At that time too there had been a single death but there were other residents living there who had tested positive for Covid-19.

In the interview Zandra Lewis was audibly close to tears over concern for her staff and patients. In fairness, few understood what was happening at the beginning of this farrago, but her main concern was a lack of adequate PPE to protect staff – a general concern throughout the UK. She told Manx Radio that two of her residents had tested positive for Covid-19 with a further five due to be tested. She was convinced these others had Covid-19 too.

Less than a fortnight later twelve residents had died having tested positive for Covid-19, one of whom died in hospital.

A police investigation, led by Detective Inspector Mark Newey, ensued. Five people were arrested and interviewed on suspicion of manslaughter and other offences. None were charged. After legal advice DI Newey stated that there was “insufficient evidence” to charge anyone with “gross negligence manslaughter”. He could not say more but “other criminal and health and safety offences” were still being investigated. It would be welcoming news to learn what procedures were in place for treatment of those diagnosed with Covid-19.

It is highly likely that ventilators were used. On 24 April, when there had been 16 deaths in the “community” and 4 in hospital Minister of Health and Social Care, David Ashford, was joined by consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Noble’s Hospital, Mr Ian Wright. Before delivering a glowing eulogy for Mr Wright the minister said:

Of course the number of beds and ventilators we have available is crucially important.

And in outlining the “key achievements” he added:

  • Working with colleagues from the Department of Infrastructure, our Department of Health and Social Care has commissioned a new ward and other important critical health facilities at Nobles. DOI have also installed our own oxygen production facility. The provision of oxygen is a challenge across the United Kingdom. We can now produce our own.
  • Our on-Island testing facility is now up and running. This will allow us to conduct around 200 tests a day without having to send them off-Island. Well done to everyone involved in delivering this.
  • We have doubled our ITU capacity and – importantly – have trained staff to work on it.
  • Working with Department for Enterprise colleagues, DHSC have established solid global procurement of personal protection equipment beyond our regular NHS supply chains.
  • Government has developed expert analytical tools to support policy development, contact tracing and cluster investigations.

So we know that about this time testing was being conducted on the island. What may never be known is whether those who died had previously tested positive for Covid-19 after samples had been sent to Liverpool – or after the island started its own testing procedures. What is known is that there were only four further deaths attributed to Covid-19 over the next eight months and the infection rate fell suggesting that the PCR tests were looking for a higher viral load (less cycles) when conducted on home soil. This could also mean that none of the residents at Abbotswood had Covid-19 but just tested positive from samples sent abroad.

Indeed a month later everything was opening up again, with nobody in intensive care with Covid-19, families allowed to have ten members of the family in their home, and meet outside in groups of ten providing social distancing was observed.

By 15 June 2020 there were no active cases. Social distancing was reduced to 1 metre. Schools and nurseries were reopening and gatherings were being increased to thirty people. Restaurants were also reopening, pubs would follow at the end of the month and businesses were given more leeway to make their own decisions.

More analysis of Manx Covid-19 deaths

By the end of 2020 there had been 25 deaths ascribed to Covid-19. Since 20 of those were in one care home it means that there had been but 5 deaths in the whole year elsewhere on an island with a population of some 85,000 residents. To put that into perspective during the Great Plague of 1665 an estimated 1 in 7 to 1 in 8, people died in London, more devastatingly 1 in 4 in Eyam, a Derbyshire village where they locked down.

By comparison in the Isle of Man the death toll would be 1 in 17,000. Even including the Abbotswood deaths it would still only amount to 1 in 3,400. To call this a pandemic would have been laughable at any time in history before the 21st century “age of dissonance”.

What governments have been allowed to get away with is alarming. Boris Johnson announced “three weeks to flatten the curve” and the Isle of Man joined the chorus. Six days before the first death the Chief Minister, Howard Quayle, said:

There can be no positive outcome from this pandemic. There will be loss of life. Some of us will lose loved ones. Our Island community needs to brace itself for that.

Chief Minister’s statement to Tynwald on COVID-19 – 27 March 2020

Notice again that word “community” this time preceded by “Our Island”. Here Mr Quayle is not talking about a nursing-home because he does not know who is going to die, when or where. By the time of the above statement deaths in care-homes were already a concern in other parts of the UK. Questions are ongoing about the administration of certain end-of-life drugs, the use of ventilators and DNR notices, especially the “death-row” lethal-injection drug, Midazolam.

Freedom of Information (FOI) requests were made by Manx residents seeking the answer to some of these questions. They met with limited success (case numbers 1950173,1749605 and 1919133).

The last of these is most revealing. 26 deaths where Covid-19 was given as the cause were recorded. One of these was suspected as being a Covid-19 death – and that was clearly not included in Howard Quayle’s statement of 25 deaths. Of those twenty-five deaths 8 were in their nineties, 12 were in their eighties, four in their seventies and 1 was fifty seven. Their average age was just over 82.

Covid-19 or Covid-19 pneumonia was given as the main cause of death for 20 of them, multiple organ failure for 3. Of those with co-morbidities: 11 had dementia, 6 had hypertension, 5 had kidney disease, 4 had heart disease, one had a tumour on the brain, and another bladder cancer. 1 appears to have died from Covid-19 alone but then that person was 98 years of age and might just have passed away.

What this says is that if Covid-19 had not come along 25 death certificates would have been issued with a different cause of death. For such a small number of deaths Chief Minister Quayle placed severe restrictions on the people of the Isle of Man and their relatives in mainland countries.

What’s more there were harsh penalties for those who did not follow government guidelines enforced by the island’s police-force and judiciary. It was a metaphorical birching – and everybody got it.

Harshest punishment in the British Isles

Breaking the rules set by Chief Minister, Howard Quayle, came at some cost to Isle of Man residents who chose to carry on as normal. The police, according to Manx advocate, Ian Kermode, behaved in a “disgraceful” manner and totally out of line with the rest of the United Kingdom. The Isle of Man Examiner, 17 August 2021, reported Mr. Kermode’s condemnation of Chief Constable, Gary Roberts,

Mr Roberts ought to be challenged for presiding over one of the darkest and most unmerciful chapters in the history of Manx policing.

From March 2020 to the end of July 2021 a total of 215 people were arrested and detained for breaching Covid regulations. More than half were charged and 71 received custodial sentences. By comparison not a single person was charged in England (population of 56.5 million). Getting away with this over-the-top use of police force is neither good for Manx residents nor for the reputation of the police.

Unfortunately there could be worse measures to come if vaccination becomes mandatory, and exclusions are put in place for those not wishing to take the shot. There could even be discrimination against those without a vaccination certificate.

Sadly vaccinations mean more Covid deaths

Because the Isle of Man has not suffered badly with deaths from Covid-19 (even if figures can be taken on face value) it makes the numbers easier to work with and is ideal for a case-study. Look at this graph of Covid-19 deaths to date.

It was recently downloaded from the Isle of Man government website.

On 16 December 2020 Pfizer vaccines arrived on the island and the vaccination programme began on, or shortly before, 4 January 2021. Official Covid-19 deaths have since that date increased, if this chart is accurate, almost threefold. While cause and effect is empirical the indication supports experts who are of the opinion that the vaccines, and some even say the test-kits, are actually delivering the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes Covid-19. Others have shown that the vast majority of us already have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in our bloodstreams. So there is no need whatever for anyone to be exposed to an experimental vaccine. The body’s immune system is the best protection any of us can have.

Mr Quayle had been preparing residents for vaccination from the middle of 2020. The graph shows deaths at Abbotswood (recently renamed Silverdale) Care home and Nobles Hospital during March, April, May, 2020. After that there are no further deaths until the single death of an 83 year-old person who died with bladder cancer on 5 November 2020 – though this was logged as a Covid-19 death.

After vaccination began the death toll rose by March to 29. There was then another lull with increases in cases to 865 by 1 April 2021. Then in mid-April the Director of Public Health made a statement full of optimism and full of foreboding. On the one hand, Dr Henrietta Ewart, said:

As we have worked through each step of this managed exit from lockdown, we have made clear our hope to be able to lift all restrictions on or around the 19 April.

and on the other hand she said of this “pandemic”:

When we entered our first lockdown, hopes of developing effective treatments to fight COVID or a vaccine seemed a considerable time away. Come our second lockdown in January, not only had vaccines been developed and tested, we were beginning the roll out of the largest ever mass vaccination programme here on the Island. Come our third lockdown, our vaccination programme was well underway. But we needed more time to get jabs in arms and to get people protected.

Henrietta Ewart, 01/04/2021

Three days earlier another death had taken the toll to 29. It was due to get a whole lot worse. It should be clear by now that the “vaccines” are actually giving people Covid-19 or a variant. And not just on the Isle of Man – though it is more than evident here.

I have spoken a great deal today about the importance of our vaccination programme. Yesterday we marked 100 days since it began. During that time we have administered more than 63,000 doses of vaccine.

Dr. Henrietta Ewart, 15/04/2021

June came along and the vaccines were blessing everyone with the dreaded lurgy. Dr. Henrietta Ewart gave a statement to try and make it not seem quite so obvious. This is what she came up with.

The Isle of Man Government has adopted a mitigation strategy, with members of the public encouraged to make their own decisions about protecting themselves and their families from coronavirus. No longer seeking to eliminate the virus, Government’s focus now is on supporting the community to learn to live with it. 

Dr Henrietta Ewart: 06/09/2021

Learn to live with it? The previous summer there was no virus.

The graph above all these quotes shows that the Covid-19 death-rate is more than twice the level it was before the “vaccination” programme began. Second jabs started in June 2021. Nobody knows what these Big Pharma brews contain except that they are not traditional vaccines in any sense. And a variety of non-human content is in them. To see some of the many alien products in the vaccines watch Dr. Zandre Botha’s report on the Stew Peters Show.


Booster-jabs even more deadly

On 24 September the booster roll-out began. Accompanying leaflets, adapted from UK leaflets, boast about how the MHRA has approved these “vaccines” as being safe and effective. Of course they have not. If they had they would have licensed them – which they haven’t. The worst example is the big lie to get children, who never suffer from Covid-19, jabbed with a concoction that could make them infertile, for which only the short-term adverse reactions are known.

The medicines regulator, the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), has confirmed the Pfizer vaccine is safe and effective for 12 to 17 year olds.

Manx leaflet adapted from UK leaflet

You are urged to take a look at Israel, where Covid-19 deaths have really shot up since the booster jabbing began there. If that does not convince you it is unlikely anything will.

Israel was once being heralded as an example of vaccination success. The booster vaccine has changed that image completely. Germany started on 13 September 2021. Wise Manx people, knowing there were fewer deaths by far – and nearly all in one location – before “vaccination” began, would at least wait. These witches’ brews can change your life forever.


It is time for Manx residents to say they have had enough of Dr Henrietta’s birch. Refuse to be part of the vaccination certificate programme. It is not going to help you get a life. It is the first move towards martial law.

Taking back what this fake pandemic has stolen from you is what you need to do. It calls for strong-minded people who refuse to bend over for punishment they do not deserve. It needs many – not a few. Your freedom is at stake. You need a Moses to lead you away from the proposed slavery. Think about it. Because Henrietta Ewart and Howard Quayle are not going to do it for you.

If nobody takes the initiative the Isle of Man may not sink to the bottom of the Irish Sea like the Ellan Vannin did. But all on board will be lost.

  1. In Australia things are still as bad as ever. As I can see from this article, in remote geographical sovereignties the wannabe oligarchs are labelling vaccine related deaths as Covid deaths.Police inquisition is rife and brutality in the state of Victoria also rife.QLD is also bad. There are two different police forces here, only one of which we recognise. The MSM reports that the other police who have a different uniform had to be transported in to control what the video shows was a peaceful protest until the police instigated violence. Who knows what will happen. There is a CPAC conference in Queensland that I am hoping to attend. It will be interesting to see if the QLD premier relaxes the vaccination rule so that she can get the money it will bring into her coffers. She relaxes all the rules for footy games which bring money in so maybe she will do it for a conference.
