TG: Government “Criminalises And Patronises” Our Community Over Lateral Flow Tests

Together Gibraltar has said that the Government's policy on lateral flow tests “makes no sense.”

A statement continued: “During the Christmas period it admitted the 111 helpline was overwhelmed. We understand people are taking up to two days to receive the results of their PCR tests. This is having an impact on people's personal freedoms as well as businesses as people wait around for days to receive their test results.

“And yet the government is stubbornly clinging on to its law which criminalises anyone who imports a lateral flow test.

“Everywhere around the world governments are encouraging people to take LFTs, and in the UK they have even been free until only days ago. A timely LFT could prevent someone from spreading Covid. But in Gibraltar, the government disallow the population to swab themselves.

“The Government will attempt to defend its policy by claiming it is following public health advice. But it has been following UK public health advice throughout the pandemic. The argument that Gibraltar is smaller and therefore different has never influenced government to stray from the guidance and policy coming out of the UK, so why is government not following UK public health advice on this particular issue? It defies common sense.

“The fact here is that the control of LFT imports lies with the government, and people are being charged £30 per test when they cost practically nothing. Why the massive mark up when this should be a public service? Why should there be such a huge profit margin when we're talking about people's health during a pandemic? None of the government's assertions in their press release explain that.

“More testing is a way to prevent the spread. The people demand transparency and common sense from their government.”

Together Gibraltar says the Government is treating the “citizens of Gibraltar like incapable children.”

A statement from Together Gibraltar follows below:

Together Gibraltar welcomes the Government’s partial disclosure of the dealings taking place in the procurement of lateral flow tests, but would like to highlight the following contradictions:

Government and the Director of Public Health have told the general public that tests should be carried out following strict protocols approved by medical practitioners, and administered by trained medical staff. It states that the tests procured by Government are “high quality.”

In reality, tests are being carried out by students and non-medical staff at the airport rapid test centre. The tests being utilised are being supplied by Basewell Ltd, a cement company, with little or no experience in the procurement of medical supplies. This company, however, enjoys a long-standing and fruitful relationship with Government, having been the recipient of multiple public contracts.

Fabian Picardo’s press release stated that “the Spanish government…heavily subsidise the final price to consumers of these tests for at-home use”.

This statement is completely false. Spain has at no point during the pandemic subsidised lateral flow tests to make them cheaper. What Spain has done is cap the retail price - precisely - to protect the consumer.

Considering the aforementioned contradictions, Together Gibraltar is not satisfied with the explanations given by Government. The party would like to highlight the fact that the deal for the procurement of these tests did not undergo any kind of public tender, and, had TG not raised it, would not have undergone any kind of public scrutiny. The party reminds the people of Gibraltar that the end price that the local population is paying is more than five times what citizens across the border are paying for LFT’s, a test that is free in several other European countries, including the UK until very recently. For Government to be holding on to a technicality (that tests are not sold over the counter) does nothing to protect the Gibraltarian consumer who is paying a ridiculous mark up of 500-800% by the time they get a test done.

As for the accusations on flip-flopping, TG would like to remind the general public that LFT’s are available to purchase over the counter in most countries in the world. Making tests readily available and inexpensive is not a measure that contradicts TG’s policy of strictly following scientific advice and always applying the precautionary principle, on the contrary, it is Public Health Gibraltar that has placed itself against the global scientific consensus on this matter.

TG therefore urges Government to disclose every single detail of the deal, including the initial purchase price paid by Basewell Ltd. It would also like the Government to clarify the benefits of having an agent (essentially a middle-man), and what it means by “quick importation”. Is Basewell Ltd. quicker at importing goods than the GHA itself? Will this service provided (as per the Government’s statement) free of cost, increase Basewell Ltd´s chances of achieving future, more lucrative deals?

Regardless of the clearly improper opacity of these deals, what is undeniable is that the system implemented by Government is simply not working. At £15-20 (the approximate final price of the tests), the people of Gibraltar are being restricted access to what should be another important tool to limit Covid contagion.

By denying them the possibility of self-testing (with tests that are marginally more complex than a pregnancy test), the Government, who has previously praised the public's response to public health measures, is treating the citizens of Gibraltar like incapable children.

TG leader Marlene Hassan Nahon said: "The Chief Minister's tone betrays his state of agitation. The more he repeats his patronising tropes about me not understanding anything, the more nervous he is and walks into his own goals. Let's not forget he did not reveal the identity of the contracted suppliers until he had no choice. The people of Gibraltar deserve honesty, transparency and the decided pursuit of value in the use of public funds, particularly in times of crisis, and they also deserve to be treated like grown ups. I have full confidence in our public's ability to judge whether they believe him or not.”

There's another article about the LFT – The GSD perspective -

It's not really what they said about the LFT – it was everything else wrapped around it.

The GSD said Gibraltar “must now learn to live with Covid” as it called for a review on the rationale of restrictions and the purpose of testing.

Others from around the world have already said this, that it's time to live with it, just as people have with the common cold or flu – Should we treat Covid like the flu? Europe is slowly starting to think so, which includes Spain – Spain becomes first European nation to call for TREATING COVID LIKE THE FLU

GSD: “We must learn to live with it.”

“At any one time we are seeing almost 5% of our population subjected to self-isolation rules,” the GSD said.

“These were designed before the vaccination effort and when the effects of COVID were more likely to lead to higher hospitalisation and the possible collapse of the GHA.”

“This is now not the case and should be reconsidered.”

But the GSLP government that doesn't want to give up its newfound power. And the GSD isn't really speaking truth to power.

More concerning is that something sinister might be just around the corner, like more deaths or new variants.

GSD: “Any restrictions on freedoms should now be responsive to the new post-vaccination environment.”

They still are going along with the false idea that the vaccine programme was "successful".

Does anyone look at the real data in Gibraltar!

Fabian Picardo, said “We will continue to be guided by the scientific advice."

They are all part of the NONSENSE

Here's another scientific expert telling the TRUTH - The prevailing corona nonsense narrative:

Dear fellow humans!

My name is Thomas Binder.

I am a cardiologist and an internist in a private practice in Switzerland, wrote my thesis in immunology and virology, and am a member of ‘Aletheia – Medicine and Science for Proportionality‘ and of ‘Doctors for Covid Ethics’, who both are fighting for the reinstitution of scientificity, also known as reality, of sanity and of humanness.

The alleged corona killer virus is nonsense.

The alleged epidemic of national or international scope is nonsense.

The use of RT-PCR tests on healthy people is nonsense.

The Corman-Drosten RT-PCR test protocol is nonsense.

The diagnostic criteria for COVID-19 disease are nonsense.

Anti-social distancing, quarantine, isolation, contact tracing, masks, school closures and curfews, also called lockdowns, for asymptomatic, formerly called healthy people, are nonsense.

The unnecessary, ineffective, and unsafe serial experimental mRNA and DNA injections are nonsense.

Every second-year medical student has to study 'Basic Epidemiology'. There, he learns that when an epidemic of national scope is declared, a study cohort must be constituted immediately for longitudinal surveillance. This cohort must represent the demographics of the population, and it is used for tracking the case numbers, the severity of the disease, and the status of immunity to the germ that caused the epidemic.

However, even though it is now almost one and half a year ago that the WHO declared the COVID pandemic, such a representative surveillance cohort does not exist in your country.

Either there is no one among your government ministers, your health authorities and their advisors with the knowledge of a second-year medical student, or you are being totally fooled.

The epidemic is fake, but the oppressive measures which it has produced are real; they threaten our freedom, our livelihoods, and even our lives.

An endemic of a beta corona common cold virus is inflated into a pandemic of a killer virus with PR, PCR and masks and fought with serial unnecessary, ineffective, unsafe experimental mRNA and DNA injections.

The greater the damage of the roof, the more beautiful the view on the stars!

Dear responsible fellow humans!

Wake up, stand up and fight, peacefully but firmly; if not for yourself, then for your children's future and that of your grandchildren.

Let's all join hands to end this unethical, unjust, unscientific, inhumane nonsense, now!


So while there is a "Punch and Judy show" in Gibraltar about the purchase and price of the Lateral Flow Tests, they ignore the dangers of them altogether – and insist on their usage, putting Gibraltarians at risk of harm, for a so-called virus akin to the common cold or flu.

Prof. Bergholz discussed the Ethylene oxide (EO) scandal. Ethylene oxide which is anything else but a harmless gas.

Prof. Bergholz documented his research: ‘Risk analysis Implementation of rapid Covid-19 tests and through PCR tests’.

(The English version is in the article on Daily Expose. The article also includes a video link, subtitled in English.)

His document begins: “The rapid antigen tests contain gold nanoparticles and in at least one case a chemical that has not been approved in Europe and has now received an exemption. All of these substances are harmful to health and the environment. All package inserts for rapid tests that have been examined to date contain chemicals that are hazardous to health.

All swabs that Prof. Bergholz analysed contained the carcinogenic and mutagenic substance EO, 50 times the amount of EO than is permitted.

In addition to chemicals found on the swabs, pieces of the swabs break off. “They clearly leave parts in the body that is unacceptable,” Prof. Bergholz said, “and this again is hard to understand that the authorities ‘push the rod along’...

Lateral Flow Tests – Another Criminally Insane Game


Picardo is not following science. He is following orders. He is following Their Evil Plan:

  1. To Bankrupt Gibraltar and make it beholden to the Banksters.
  2. To Destroy Sovereignty.
    (Beware the deals with EU/Spain and the CCP-controlled shell companies)
  3. To Bring in Digital Identities.
    (Beware the Beast-system, where you can't buy or sell).
  4. To establish the Brave New World of Global Technocracy in Gibraltar.

He's a wolf in sheep's clothing. What's he going to do when he has successfully destroyed Gibraltar from the inside?

Not Led By Science - it's the antithesis of science

"As soon as anyone disagrees with the expert opinion of people like Witty and Valance, politicians and the media are quick to accuse them of *"denying science."* This tactic is used incessantly. It is not done in the service of science. It is always done to defend policy decisions.

We can say this is always the case, because to accuse someone of being a science denier when they are using reasonable, evidence based arguments, only serves to illustrate how ignorant of science the person making the denier allegation is. Science is not based upon certainty. It is based upon doubt.

We have been told that lockdown and other political measures, in response to COVID-19, are all "led by science." This is not science in a form that most of us would recognise, however. It appears to be the antithesis of science.

Many people decry these experts but, without those who have expert knowledge, knowledge itself could not progress. Experts aren't the problem. The problem is that our reliance upon experts can be exploited by those with a vested interest.

The political response to COVID-19 claims legitimacy by citing scientific experts. The UK government say they are guided by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE.) The two most high profile SAGE members are Sir Patrick Vallance and Chris Witty (both are compromised by conflicts of interests).

This is not a conflict of interest because the government say it isn't.

It doesn't matter if everyone on Earth accepts the theory. If just one scientist can show evidence which proves it could be wrong, it is no longer cohesive theory. The theory cannot be said to be true until it accounts for all the evidence.

Pseudoscience consists of statements, beliefs, or practices that claim to be both scientific and factual but are incompatible with the scientific method. Pseudoscience is often characterized by contradictory, exaggerated or unfalsifiable claims; reliance on confirmation bias rather than rigorous attempts at refutation; lack of openness to evaluation by other experts; absence of systematic practices when developing hypotheses; and continued adherence long after the pseudoscientific hypotheses have been experimentally discredited.
