MP SENDS BEST WISHES TO OUR PRIME MINISTER AS HE IS ADMITTED TO INTENSIVE CARE

Published at:

Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely has issued a statement following tonight’s news (Monday) that Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been admitted to Intensive Care.

Boris went into hospital last night as a precautionary measure after fighting coronavirus for the past 10 days.

In a shocking development, it has been announced that Mr Johnson has been moved to an Intensive Care Unit at St Thomas’ Hospital, although he is not thought to be on a ventilator.

Dominic Rabb is deputising for the Prime Minister.

Bob Seely has said:

“There are thousands of people in intensive care up and down the country. Sadly, that now includes the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Boris for the last three years and I hope very much that he makes a speedy and thorough recovery. I know he is in the best of hands.

“I thank all the medical staff throughout Britain for the work that they do saving peoples’ lives. That now includes the Prime Minister’s”.

That’s unusual everyone else just gets an auto reply, but then this mp is a good pole climber.

Wishing a speedy recovery not only to the prime minister but to all affected by this terrible disease. Get well soon.

This is such heart-breaking news. Of course it goes without saying that on any human level to know that someone has become so ill is just devastating but to have our new Prime Minister who is a man of such upbeat,optimistic personality and has endeavoured so very hard to keep all our spirits up whilst this evil virus invades us all,this is just the saddest news.

Politics are irrelevant when it comes to a situation such as this and my whole heart goes out to Boris and everyone who loves him…not to mention a new baby on the way.
No matter who we may be or how clever we may think we are,this all-pervading evil seems to have the edge right now.
We truly MUST take all sensible advice in keeping distance,avoiding going out and caring about others beyond ourselves.

I truly hope and pray that Boris will soon be well and that in the weeks and months ahead he will once again be the tour de force that leads us all in his ever-effervescent,upbeat,optimistic style which this Country of ours’ has needed for so long and was just on the brink of a new beginning before this wicked virus hurt us all beyond belief,nationally and globally.

Well said and articulated, what ever our political views are, I’m sure everyone wish Boris and his loved ones all the best.

We must all remember his message and do just that, Stay in doors, and protect our wonderful NHS…

Thank you very much both of you,Clare and Tricia for your kind comments…

Waking every morning is like being in a true-life horror/sci-fi film right now but one day it really will be okay again and all of us will be so much more appreciative of all that we ever took for granted before 2020 began.

Let’s hope that Boris makes a speedy and full recovery.

Such a refreshing change from the polished smarmy suit type of MP we are used to. With a baby to look forward to I am sure he will find the strength to fight this vile virus off. The freedom of Britain is at risk if he doesn’t.

For those STILL in denial, through perhaps fear, or just being dim, remember that Boris is only 55, and would have had the best medical treatment available.

The link explains the process of being ventilated and is not pleasant:
https://www.itv.com/news/2020-04-07/pm-very-likely-to-need-ventilator-professor-says/

Remember that even ‘when’ over CV, life changing damage can have occurred, NOT saying this to worry people but in the hope that the denial and dim will respect the Gov advice and keep their distance from others whether in their homes or out of such.

It could so easily be someone you care about, and for those in love only with themselves young age is no certainty of ‘getting over it’.

On Radio 4’s Inside Health programme a few weeks back, they talked about a procedure which I think used the continuous air pressure technique, or something similar to that, and they said on the programme that this had given much better results and was far less invasive and traumatic and so if that is the case, why aren’t they using this method more? They explained that some people don’t do well on ventilators and it would not be something they would want to use for everyone and had much better results with this.
Sorry I do not know that much about it, but as someone terrified of medical procedures, as is my friend too, we both have real phobias about it, then why don’t they publicize this more? It seems even some medical people don’t know about it.

Does anyone know the Influenza (corona virus) statistics for the current season from the start. It would be interesting to know how it was developing prior to the covid19 introduction.

This is a bit like one of those movies, you know ,hunger games, where everything you do when in power is used to the maximum effect. I’m not saying Boris isn’t ill, but what great PR. We can all feel like we know Boris as a friend. And what do we do with friends? Trust them that’s right. So when Boris extends the lockdown and maybe tighten it a bit more, everybody won’t begin to be a little fed up,because Boris is our mate so that’s fine. Cynical?yes , Blind? Definitely not. Watching with interest. Oh, and hope you get well soon Boris.

I’ve just read Paris has banned outdoor exercises for between 10am and 7pm because like some of us some of them wouldn’t stick to the rules! Maybe our government should do the same

I waited until after dark again yesterday before walking round the block for a bit of exercise after being cooped up in my small bedroom all day, and I couldn’t believe the amount of people everywhere. A group of four all close together coming towards me and stopped huddled around each other all looking at something one of them was holding, there was no room on the pavement to get past them and maintain the 6ft distance, the pavement itself is probably less than that across if measured, I wasn’t going to go up and say excuse me , (not because they were typical lowlife, because they weren’t, they appeared to be ‘respectable’ people and no doubt would believe themselves to be, but certainly ignorant) even if they all moved aside and stood in single file, not enough space on the pavement to walk past one person and maintain the required distance, so I had to wait until the traffic had lulled to be able to walk in the road, I couldn’t cross to the other side as there were two people walking hand in hand on that side.
If anyone came to Ryde from anywhere else in the country, they would think “Lockdown, what lockdown?” As it certainly is not being observed.

What difference is there is sitting in a tiny garden, with neighbours only a few foot away, so close you can smell their smoke, or you being out in the open, then able to avoid anyone you see approaching?

Fine IF you have acres of ground to self isolate, try squeezing between the wheely bin and food container, whilst the bored, adhd joey child shouts and throws toys around, and the parent smokes dope to ‘ease’ their troubled life in case they one day, one or both of them have to work for a living, or pay their own rent or council tax, or even, heaven forbid pay for the next clone it miraculously produces with no (according to council tax and rent) no partner, would make Mary (Jesus’s mums) Virgin birth look like a ever day happening on this ‘single muver estate’.

All for staying safe, and keeping others safe, but all DEPENDS on where you live, how close you are, what type of neighbours you endure, to the risk of driving in a sealed box to an isolated area to enjoy the Spring weather harming no one.

Yes I could crash, but with most hiding at home less likely imo than breathing in the germs of those who cannot live without a house full of noisy, drugged low life.

Rather pay the fine as I know I am avoiding more germs and others by leaving my small garden.

I have scummy neighbours too, and not even a garden I can sit out in if i wanted to, can’t even sit outside anywhere now thanks to what the scummy neighbours all around have done. I have to smell cigarette smoke and cannabis in my house from the lowlife next door, and BBQ fumes, and chimney smoke from others around, and other people next door facing my front door have recently had a vent put on the side of their house which sends emissions noisily out straight towards me.
I don’t drive so cannot escape out into the countryside, and even if I did would have to slather on loads of insect repellent as they just love to bite me, even though I’m one of those idiots who is always kind to insects and don’t hurt any.

Then just now, the second I looked out of my front door, some bloke going past the gate, with headphones on and his head jiggling around, oblivious to if I had been walking out of my gateway at that time, or anyone who may have been, heaven help anyone who walked out onto the pavement looking down at something, they would have collided with him.
It is busier out now than before this lockdown was in place.

Get well soon, Boris. The country needs you.

Hoping his girlfriend is improving too, I hear she has this virus also.

Honestly, some of the comments I’ve read over the last 4 days are just mind boggling! From road blocks,to forced vaccination. When all this is over,and it wont be for months, the amount of freedom and civil rights you have all agreed with to just give them all away, because your all panicking! LOOK AT CHINA , that’s where we are heading. The new powers the police have,will be staying. Good old boris ( your friendly politician) has already said those laws many stay up to 2 years! Why? Because after 2 years they will be the norm and the sheep people would have forgotten all about them . Yes this is horrible, and the media have everyone in fear, but think about the long term.

To Mr justice..couldn’t agree more, I’m hoping the silent majority will kick back against any loss of civil liberties. I’m sure the sheep can be contained on the IOW

The trouble is though that the worse people are, the more they get away with nowadays, so perhaps a little bit more loss of freedom for those types wouldn’t be such a bad thing, Law abiding people shouldn’t have to worry too much surely?

While I sympathise with Boris Johnson and wish him a speedy recovery from Corona virus, have the government forgotten the very vulnerable self isolating people who received NHS letters telling them to do so for 12 weeks and promised food parcels if they didn’t have anyone to do their shopping?
Both my husband and are are in this group and have no relatives friends or neighbours we could ask to do this. We had to register and telephoned the dedicated government hotline and was answered by an automated message who said that our NHS numbers weren’t recognised! There was no alternative number to ring and the doctors didn’t have a clue either who to contact. We have received no communication and all the online supermarkets are booked weeks in advance, and we are running out of food. Is anyone else having the same trouble and know who to contact please?

It’s strange isn’t it,that before this virus,the government didnt really care to much about the elderly did they . Remember tv licensing, bus travel, winter heating payments,and so on. Now because of the agenda behind this virus,they care so much for the elderly that they are making us all lock down. I cant believe people still dont see this. Oh well, watching with interest.

This is 2nd time I’ve tried to post this. So sat out so much. David icke seems sometimes he’s off the planet, but just imagine if David had a bigger following then he has, and didn’t seem to the majority he’s crazy( that’s changing about the following) he would cease to exist. Malcome x, jfk, monroe, etc all were silenced. A threat to the establishment . So David isn’t stupid is he,only people that believe the smoke screen.watching with interest

Well it’s the truth! So sad about so much. People don’t like to hear the truth,they would rather ignore it or even try to discredit it. But as you and I learnt from our mums growing up, the truth always comes out in the end.

David makes a lot of sense but the thing about the Royal family being 10ft shape shifting lizards is what loses it for me. A lot of what else he says sounds plausible though I hadn’t heard anything he’s said for a long time until this thing on Youtube blew up the other day, and again I don’t know what he said, only what I heard on news reports.

I think a lot of people are asking questions, Boris told us that for most people who got the virus, they probably wouldn’t even know they had it, and he had very mild symptoms and is now in intensive care after two weeks of being at home self isolating, then other advice says self isolate for 7 days, its all so confusing.

Just think,if david icke didnt make himself seem a bit off planet, and had a bigger following then he has,then maybe he would be a threat to the establishment. A bit like, malcolm x ,JFK, .marilyn monroe, etc etc. David would cease to exist. So please beare that in mind when you listen to him.
