Well this week really has brought out the absolute idiots. If you havn’t been following the laughable stories about 5G mobile internet roll-out at the moment, firstly, lucky you, and secondly, you’ve missed a shitshow of complete stupidity.
I will spare you the moronic “evidence” which is mostly people believing wholesale some nonsense off Youtube and how “the man” doesn’t want you to know. Because of course Youtube is an underground plucky upstart and not owned by Google with a reach of billions.
One of my favourite claims is that the current time is being used by those nefarious mobile companies to install 5G masts. One such example I’ve seen was Thamesmead.
As someone who follows planning applications every week, and has done for years to seek out upcoming changes and research, the masts have not just sprung up. They’ve all been in the planning process and visible to all for years. Here’s one for Western Way in Thamesmead. I’ve seen applications for them all the time.
Like 4G before, and 3G before it, mast installation follows a process set out in public. Anyone can check.
Many 5G masts have been working for almost a year across London. Somehow I’m able to walk around without stepping over piles of dead birds.
The idea they are being put up suddenly and in the hope no one will notice (‘cos no one will notice a bloody big mast being put up right?) is amusing if it wasn’t so stupid. Some of this crap is leading people to ignore restrictions on going out and spreading a virus which will kill many people.
