This week brought the disclosure of private messages from the former UK Health Minister Matt Hancock.
Released at 11pm on the 28th of February by journalist Isabel Oakeshott they reveal the inner workings of the UK government’s lockdown policies. What they say will not be news to the wise, but nevertheless provide incontrovertible proof that the policies we suffered under COVID were a pack of lies made up on the hoof.
The Telegraph has obtained more than 100,000 WhatsApp messages sent between Matt Hancock and other ministers and officials at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Oakeshott was working on Hancock’s book, which is why she had access to his message records. She justifies this violation of a non-disclosure agreement by pointing to the British State’s tendency to delay inquiries indefinitely.
“We need answers” she says, regarding the government’s draconian measures during the COVID panic. By comparison:
Sweden wrapped up its investigation a year ago. The verdict…was that avoiding mandatory lockdowns – an approach that made Sweden a global outlier – ultimately worked out quite well… They were rewarded with one of the lowest levels of excess mortality in Europe.
Sweden did not lock down and their report concluded that lockdowns did nothing. Perhaps this explains why the U.K. inquiry is still in the preliminary hearing stage. Plans to arrange an investigation into U.S. government lockdown policies have stalled. The Canadian government has declared itself justified in the repression of the truckers, and in the unsurprising absence of an official inquiry, a citizen’s inquiry into their lockdown policies has been launched.
Australia’s horrific response to the COVID panic has been mildly reprimanded in an independent inquiry, which warned against “government overreach” during the next one. New Zealand, notorious for its lengthy and severe lockdowns coupled with vaccine mandates, began an inquiry in February 2023 which is due to conclude in the summer of 2024.
This news from Britain spells trouble for any leader who told us to “follow the science” – as “the science” turned out to be nonsense.
