I’ve had some news today that 96 year old Elsie died earlier this week in a care home.
Her family didn’t make it to her beside. They were not even told she was at the brink of death, and they certainly didn’t have a private jet to get there quick enough.
Elsie died alone in her bed. When her family got there they discovered that she was still lying in her own urine and that she had been administered midazolam, despite the express instructions of her son, who was her Attorney for health and welfare.
Elsie had worked until she was 72. Her and her husband, when he was alive, didn’t have a gold carriage to travel around in, they didn’t even have a fancy car, as they couldn’t afford it.
When Elsie’s husband died 10 years ago, she lived on her state pension and a small private pension from her husband. She regularly didn’t switch her heating on in winter as she was worried about her bills. Yet she was generous to a fault to her community, and regularly cooked and baked for her neighbours. She often gave her help for free to organisations to assist the homeless and who she considered less fortunate than her. Her family have told me that she had an open house when they were younger, taking in their friends and making sure they were well fed, even though things were extremely tight for her and her husband.
Elsie had been in a home for the last 6 years, as physically she had gotten frail. She was forced to sell her house to pay for care fees that cost her £60,000 a year. She was devastated, as she knew she would have nothing to leave her 3 children, and in fact almost the totality of all she and her husband had ever worked for had been taken to pay for her “care”. Had she left anything of any worth, this may well have been charged to Inheritance tax anyway, despite Elsie and her husband having paid almost 35% of their lifetime income in taxes, due to how the system is set up.
During the last 2 and a half years, Elsie’s “care” had included forbidding visits to Elsie and isolating her for “her own good”. Her family had been unable to see her, and she was consistently alone. Consequently her mental health had declined. She and her family were also constantly pressured about her taking an experimental jab. Her Attorney refused on her behalf, as she had lost capacity in the last 18 months of her life. Being an astute lady she had made very clear in her guidance in her LPA that she wanted no more vaccines, as she had suffered from a flu jab years before.
Elsie had never stolen wealth from anyone. She had never displaced people in the name of her “empire”. She had never watched idly whilst people suffered in poverty whilst she lived in comfort. She had never paid for any of her children to settle a legal case about heinous crimes. And she had certainly never mixed with, nor invited, paedophiles into her home.
Elsie leaves behind 3 children.
I will remember Elsie. I will mourn Elsie. I doubt the rest of the country will, and neither will they be able to cognise that Elsie’s story is repeated millions of times over in this country. It is allowed by the very institution that millions of people are now displaying ridiculous jingoistic, programmed, grief about. The institution that has failed this country and allowed its politicians to run rampant with policies that have led to thousands of deaths. The institution that has caused damage and harm in countless countries.
Today, for me, is about Elsie. Its not about the mass formation event currently taking place again in this country.
I remember Elsie and all the other Elsie’s like her. And I honour them.
