IT IS not too dramatic to say that this has been a year for villains. I can’t remember a time in history when we have had so many bad eggs getting into such positions of power – men and women either behind or exploiting the politically manipulated threat that Covid has turned out to be. Men and women either acting their own interests (not the public’s) or for their ideological ends, aided by fellow travellers throughout the establishment (especially in the increasingly compromised and ‘dependent’ MSM), too scared, selfish or weak to own what they know to be the truth: that they are acting out a charade.
Today and for the following three days we’ll be publishing readers’, writers’ and our own nominations for TCW’s Covid Wall of Shame. We start with those submitted by three of our regular contributors, Michael St George, Michael Fahey and Bill Wright, and my own nomination.
My oh my, this is an easy one. Boris Johnson. It has to be. There are an awful lot of people who have said that he is being controlled by powerful globalists but anyone with a backbone and principles would be able to resist it. Rather than thinking about future prospects, whether financial gain or a powerful position once his tenure is up, he should have been thinking about doing the best for the people of this country. He hasn’t. He has allowed communists to rule the roost for the best part of two years, he has encouraged the fear and division that has spread throughout the country, he has encouraged censorship of alternate views on this issue and he has been a giant, bumbling waste of space. Crikey, his dog could have run this country better.
Blame the Michies, the Whittys, the Fergusons, the globalists all you like, but the buck stops with Johnson. He has been an utter failure, his party have been absolutely useless and the quicker these charlatan conservative-in-name-only amoebas are kicked out of parliament the better.
Her Majesty the Queen
Politicians come and go but our monarch is meant to represent something so much better. Along the lines of enduring wisdom, integrity, Christian compassion, fortitude and a steadfast impartiality.
Two events this year have shaken my respect for the Queen. First, lending her weight to the vaccine propaganda and breaking the established protocol that the monarch never discusses private health matters. Second, condoning the utterly risible and politicised gesture of awarding the George Cross to the NHS in July 2021.
However, before we go full Republican, it is important to weigh the alternative. How does President Blair, President Heseltine or President Khan sound to you? To be honest, cold sweat is tracing my spine at the prospect. Even wet Charles would be preferable, although my vote would definitely be for Anne.
Sir Jeremy Farrar and Sir Patrick Vallance
Though I was tempted to pick Bill Gates, the megalomaniac in the driving seat of the World Health Organisation, the ‘sucker upper’ of all resources in furtherance of his weird world vaccination programme for a purpose that is not a public health one, who has been pulling our PM’s strings since last December; or that wicked creature Anthony Fauci, whose amoral ‘gain of function’ research is behind this whole shebang, the Frankenstein dictating the global Covid response, I didn’t. Neither is British. They cannot be blamed for this country’s descent down the path of evil.
The fact is that Britain might have stayed independent and withstood these global machinations but for their key ‘allies’ and henchmen embedded here. I am referring to the two scientists leading Britain’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic who are implicated in an alleged cover-up of the virus’s origins.
Sir Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, and Sir Patrick Vallance, formerly president of research and development at the pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and chief scientific adviser to the Government since March 2018, are my nominations. Both had the opportunity to come clean at the end of January 2020 about Covid originating at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. For the story see here. Had they done so, the course of 2021 might have been different. Why they did not is all too clear when you look at their allegiances and financial interests. They do not bat for Britain. Farrar was up to his neck in CEPI, a Bill Gates-funded organisation set on upending the tried and tested pandemic response, dispensing with established scientific method and imposing lockdown, see here. Vallance, who was also party to suppressing the truth, is a man whose links to Big Pharma should made him ineligible to be appointed chief scientific adviser in the first place.
Michael St George
Professor Susan Michie
Aka ‘Stalin’s Nanny’, lifelong Communist doyenne of both Sage and ‘Independent Sage’ for whom, apparently, no regime of draconian restrictions on economy and society could ever be too long, or too harsh, or too damaging.
Professor Neil Ferguson
His breach of the first lockdown – imposed largely on his advice – for assignations with his married mistress focused more attention on his unfortunate record of predictions which, though officially revered, often turned out to be wildly inaccurate.
In the far-off days when I used to watch Sky News, the papers review featuring Pierce and stock London media-leftie Kevin Maguire was often notable for Pierce’s robust advocacy of small-c conservative positions, notably on the conflict between personal freedom and State-authoritarianism. So it was especially disappointing to see Pierce, appearing on the BBC’s Jeremy Vine Show on November 18, embracing full-on State-authoritarianism, including discrimination against anyone declining to take the Covid vaccine.
The erstwhile doyen of political interviewers, hitherto noted for his searching interrogations of tinpot tyrants threatening our liberties. In an extraordinary intervention in the Covid debate on 9 December, Neil lashed out at the unvaccinated with a degree of intolerance and malevolence that many found shocking. Not content with criticising the unvaccinated for being hesitant or sceptical, Neil went on to demand that they be punished.
Tomorrow we’ll start publishing our Covid Roll of Honour nominations.
