Erm, yes, erm, minister


ON Tuesday, Conservative MP Andrew Bridgen made a heroic speech in the House of Commons about the unsafe and ineffective Covid-19 experimental gene therapies. Only a handful of members bothered to listen.

On behalf of the Government, Maria Caulfield, a junior health minister, who appropriately identifies herself as an ‘urban shepherdess’, replied by repeating the mantra that the ‘vaccines’ are wonderful and have ‘saved thousands of lives’. She went on: ‘I would completely debunk this conspiracy theory that there is a whole bunch of people benefiting from the rollout of this vaccine.’

In 2002, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation invested in Pfizer, and in September 2020 Bill Gates, the friend of Jeffrey Epstein, ensured that the value of his shares went up by announcing in a CNBC interview that he viewed the Pfizer jab as the leader in the Covid-19 vaccine race: ‘The only vaccine that, if everything went perfectly, might seek the emergency use licence by the end of October, would be Pfizer.’ 

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also bought $55million worth of shares in Pfizer’s partner BioNTech in September 2019, a month before Gates’s ‘wargame’ Event 201, just before the beginning of the alleged Covid-19 pandemic.

It is easy to tell when Ministers are having difficulty with the truth. It happens when they start to speak. Another giveaway from Miss Caulfield was her ‘erm’ count. 

As a trainer in presentation skills I encourage my students to avoid saying ‘erm’. It denotes uncertainty, guessing or worse, and can become very irritating to the listener.

Although she was reading a script, no doubt prepared for her by a civil servant, the Minister was unable to say more than a few words without repeating the dreaded ‘erm’. In a 1 minute 50 second clip of her reply that I saw, she said it no fewer than 25 times.

There was clearly not a g‘erm’ of truth in what she said.
