Why the high court challenge against covid-19 restrictions will fail. October 19, 2020
They should save council taxpayer's money

I understand from the media that the mayor of Manchester Andy Burnham is planning to take the government to court over the covid-19 restrictions. He has now been nicknamed the King of the North.

I also understand he is going to do this in liaision with the mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson and the North Tyne mayor Jamie Driscoll.

I have written to all parties asking them not to do this and to save council tax payer’s money. Their legal challenge is doomed to fail. Not because of lack of merit of their case. It’s on procedural grounds.

The procedure is called a judicial review.

The public body makes a decision.

You then have 3 months to challenge it in the high court by making a submission. The other side have a chance to comment and then you give your 2nd set of comments.

A judge then decides if there is a case to answer. If so you get permission to go to full hearing. If not then you can apply for an oral hearing to ask for such permission.

However I can tell you here and now that this will fail.

Firstly you have to show the decision was unlawful. Secondly you must show that there is a pre-existing mechanism that deals with the situation.

The governmental restrictions placed on certain parts of th country were made in accordance with the Coronavirus Act of 2020 which gives the government emergency powers to act in such ways. If you examine the document it’s very similar to an act of Parliament which the government would pass in a war setting. It’s not to be nasty.

The government is between a rock and a hard place.

Take too little action and you are criticised if the virus gets out of hand.

Take too much action and you are criticised if the virus does very little.                               

Many people say words to the effect of “Why take so much action when there have been so few deaths on the grand scale of things?”

My argument would be it’s because they’ve taken such action that there have been so few deaths.

However, 2020 hindsight is a wonderful thing.

I would counsel you to look at this MP’s thoughts on the matter.


With 2020 hindsight I would now repeal the 2020 coronavirus act.


Please go to, and sign it. We are not far off 100,000 signatures at which point they will consider it for debate in parliament.​

That is the only protest I want you to make. No demonstrations, no hassling people, no obscenities and no posting horrible things on social media. Instead of doing such things do some good for your community. The money you spend on going to a protest would be better spent on giving some money to charity.

Then I want you to go to and get the lifestyle vaccine that will help you reduce your risk of all infections. A member of the public wrote ““Some great advice. Some things I would not have thought of and I think he’s a Liverpool fan lol xx”

Then we can go down the Swedish route of “Carry on as normal, if you are at risk be more careful.” In the short term this probably led to more deaths but in the long run it led to greater herd immunity.

​That said Sweden's sanitation is far better than ours, they have far fewer immigrants and they have far less obesity than we do.

It is for the above reasons why I think the judicial challenge will fail miserably. If you lose you have to pay your opponents costs and the councils doing this will get a huge costs order which will run into tens of millions.

hot for the holidays? (get it back)

There’s still time to shape up before holiday photos and parties…but only if you start NOW!

You’re not alone if you gained weight and took a few steps back on your fitness journey this year. In fact, MOST people are on track to end 2020 heavier than they started it.

Stress and uncertainty will do that to you.

However, I am writing you today to let you know that YOU CAN SHAPE UP before the holidays begin. And it’s easier than you think.

The important thing is that you get some healthy momentum going in your favor before you’re faced with the inevitable temptations and indulgences of the holiday season.

I’ve got just the plan to get you there.


1. Ditch Grains: Get your positive fitness momentum off to a strong start by avoiding grains. Going grain-free for 30 days is a simple and effective way to accelerate fat loss. Just think of all the extra carbs and calories that you’ll be saving yourself from. And it’s not so bad, once you get used to it. Wrap sandwiches and burgers in lettuce or on top of a pile of greens.

2. 5 Workouts Per Week: It’s time to really focus your efforts in the gym or at home, wherever you’re exercising. Train as if you were preparing yourself for an athletic event, with the mindset that each and every workout is important in seeing you through your goal. Make a log of each time that you exercise, noting the duration, intensity and activity.

Tough Love: I realize that 2020 has been a difficult year for your fitness routine, and maybe you’ve taken a break from exercise during quarantine. I’m here to URGE YOU TO EXERCISE AGAIN. Your health depends on your body being healthy, fit and strong. This means doing REGULAR, CHALLENGING EXERCISE several times each week. You owe it to yourself and to your family.

3. Ditch Sugar: Sugar is the biggest thing holding you back when it comes to dropping fat and getting lean. And not just refined sugar. I’m talking about all sugars. Take the next 30 days to cut out all sweeteners and limit your intake of sweet fruits. This will be hard at first, especially if you have a sweet tooth, but the rapid change in your body is fantastic incentive to keep going.

4. LOAD UP on Protein and Veggies: Enough about all the things you can’t eat, let’s talk about what you can eat. Your meals should be a variety of protein and veggies. For protein stick with organic, hormone-free meat that has been roasted, baked or grilled. For veggies, avoid starchy veggies like potatoes, and instead stick with an assortment of colorful, fiber-filled veggies.

5. Recommit to be Fit: The quickest way to get your body into tip-top shape is to join one of my fitness programs. I’m here to get you into the best shape of your life, with my proven, effective system. Make the commitment now, and together we can make the body of your dreams a reality.

So there you have it, 5 simple steps to reclaim your pre-quarantine body before the holidays even begin.

Remember, the next 30 days are going to pass whether you jump on board with a fitness plan or not. So you’re going to spend the next 30 days simply getting older and more out-of-shape OR you could buckle down and finally make your amazing transformation.

The choice is yours.

I’m here to see you through it all. Call or email now and we will get started.
