    This brave woman walked freely around and empty Gloucester hospital here in the U.K  filming as she went. This is supposed to be one of those hospitals that are overwhelmed, understaffed and has a shortage of beds.

    Empty Hospital.  Certainly no overwhelmed and rushed off their feet staff here.



    Her arrest by what can only be described as Nazis " only carrying out their orders ".

    Of course, that is what hospitals look like during a pandemic.  Stripped of all non-essential  visitors and administrators and staff Gloucester Royal is down to 700 patients in beds and 3 or 400 people treating them, almost exclusively in the 11 story patient care building on the campus, where Ms. Hicks never entered. You aren't likely to find much of either patients or nurses wandering around the lobby, which has been closed to the public since early November.  We do see 15 or 20 people waiting at Accidents & Emergencies which seems pretty normal.

    Let's note that the lady filming is named Debbi Hicks and this is hardly her first rodeo when it comes to conspiracy theories or publicity stunts.  Hicks is a well-known leftist activist and was Vice-Chairperson for the Labour Party in Stroud before she made national news for implying that Theresa May was involved in the 2017 Manchester bombing.
    She was arrested at the beginning of the first lockdown in Gloucester for organizing maskless rallies and again at the beginning of the second lockdown in November.  She was ejected from Gloucester City Council this Spring for disrupting the meeting by claiming censorship after she arrived more than an hour late to her own scheduled presentation. 

    Her arrest by what can only be described as Nazis " only carrying out their orders ".
    I can't say I've read many reports of Nazi storm-troopers saying please and thank you quite so often or waiting politely on the stairs while arrestees closed the door and got dressed.  I also don't remember the stormtroopers releasing arrestees on bail so they could flood the media with film of their arrest.

    I would not call this woman brave for trespassing at a large hosptial during a pandemic while flouting basic hygeine and inventing paranoid fantasies- dangerously cracked is more the description that occurs.

    What was the  "Public order offence" she is alleged to have committed?

    What was the  "Public order offence" she is alleged to have committed?
    Gloucester is now on TIER 4 restrictions thanks to people like Ms. Hicks but assuming Ms. Hicks performed her little trespass sometime last week, she was under TIER 3 restrictions which required her to remain at home except for work and school.  Ms. Hicks was not permitted to even go indoors at a friend or relative's house, much less invading closed medical facilities without basic hygiene.  For much of the past year, the law has required all citizens to wear a mask at most public facilities under most circumstances, especially including hospitals and especially excluding fake pandemic news manufacturing soirees.
