I was bucked by the supportive letter from Bryan Thomas of Abbotskerswell 2 weeks ago. Two citizens took issue with him in last week’s MDA but avoided a tilt at me!
Note that a SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) minute spoke of ‘instilling fear’. You might know that Dominic Cummings attended some of its meetings but he is no scientist! My near namesake, Dr David Halpern PhD FacSS, was there. He runs a large team of graduates under the name of the Behavioural Insights Team, or more ordinarily the ‘Nudge Unit’. It was in No 10 but growth caused its translocation down the road. There is a team of the same name in our ‘ally’, the US of A.
Dr Halpern is a psychologist with a distinguished academic history. Wiki quotes - “11 March 2020 he gave an interview to the BBC on the importance of shielding vulnerable people during the C19 ‘pandemic’ until herd immunity was achieved.” He was right then but Government negligence followed. As Professor Knut Wittkowski said several times before he was quickly censored, all that ‘lockdown’ etc would cause, is extension of the epidemic. Most people know that their behaviour is being recorded – eg. what you put in your trolley at the ‘super’market, your image on CCTV cameras – more in Britain than in any other nation we are told. The Nudge Unit’s skill is in tweeking our behaviour via our perceptions. What we fear, like an invisible virus, is basic in our reactions. I would bet the nudgers suggested that puerile red and yellow cross hatching round the lecterns for those stilted ‘press conferences’ in No 10.
Have written here twice before about this ‘pandemic’ - a respiratory illness due to an unusual virus. A virus that is less infective than the usual Strain A or B winter ‘flu’, but potentially rather more vicious in the frail elderly, those with damaged lungs from smoking mostly, and with other medical conditions that lower immunity. Obesity certainly adds to risk in several ways.
One central message was that there was no risk to families if they were driven up to this most beautiful moor in exceptional weather.
Instead, Government propa-ganda has so cowed a usually sceptical populace that everyone obeyed. So no child heard the arrival of the cuckoo here April 22, some 4,000 miles as the crow flies from the Congo Basin. Nor was the exultant song of the skylark heard above the golden gorse.
Instead, there has been no voice of a child above our wood beside the Bovey to Widecombe road until this last weekend. The public has been scared out of its remaining wits by so called scientific advisers.
A particular adviser, with a record of faulty prognostication going back to ‘foot and mouth’, has been disgraced. For the record, the modeling ‘Professor’ Ferguson of Imperial College had predicted in March that there would be about 500,000 deaths in this United Kingdom.
This was the trigger for the ‘lockdown’ ie virtual house arrest.
Thank you for forwarding the essay by Godfree Roberts Ed.D. Education and Politics, University of Massachusetts, Amherst 1973 in the New York Herald Tribune. This could be regarded as seminal. I am forwarding this to about 40 friends on my main e-mail list who are all sceptical about the emphasis given by the 'weirdos and misfits', and philanderers in No 10, on the alleged lethality and virulence of Covid-19. The latter is contradicted by an announcement the other day via the BBC, which has been at the forefront of the propagandere nero (PN), that 6% of the UK population and 20% of those in ?Greater London have had this one of many variants of the coronavirus family - first identified in the 60s. This family is said to be found in 15% of those with the common cold - coryza to give its pompous name. Given the crowding on public transport, in theatres and cinemas, supermarkets etc in the Wen of Cobbett, one can assume its 'infectivity'/virulence is lower than 'seasonal' influenza of the various Strain A and B types which mutate continuously. The latter is the reason why the much 'hyped' 'flu vaccination in the UK often fails to protect those submitting to it. **
Note the chief officer, his gut, and his hands in his pockets. The same mentalities that enjoyed shooting the native people in their own land - on a Sunday. And do not forget, a close ally of the US Empire and the Old and and cunning country. .
Coming down the line folks. Do read Milton Mayer again - on my home page but easier attached. Down the line. Fall in or - resist, in every way you can.
Dear Mr Hughes,
I had your ‘auto’ message. It came immediately – 20-04 10. 20 am -Thanks for your message. I am away until Tuesday 21st April and I won’t be looking at emails. If you need immediate help with something please call the Newsdesk in London. Thanks, Dominic Hughes BBC ‘News’
I have not from you since. Might I advise you as to your responsibility given that you are speaking to at least 10 million of my fellow citizens. Most are ill informed by the ‘media’ though most will have some idea as to how a bankrupted Britain will so badly affect their future lives, especially their children’s.
Dr Darmady is the second ‘corona virus’ death you highlighted. Brother Peter sent this link https://www.andoveradvertiser.co.uk/news/regional/basingstoke/18378262.retired-dr-judith-darmady-passes-away-contracting-covid-19/ She was obviously a very caring person.
