A place in the Lords for the man who shot liberty: Vallance

-

THE former Government Chief Scientific Adviser (2018-2023) Sir Patrick Vallance has been appointed Science Minister in Sir Keir Starmer’s new government. He is not an elected MP, so to circumvent the democratic process he will be elevated to the peerage, enabling him to sit in the House of Lords as a minister.

This method has been used from time to time – for example during Rishi Sunak’s November 2023 reshuffle, former Prime Minister David Cameron, no longer an MP, was appointed directly to the House of Lords and brought back into the Cabinet as Foreign Secretary.

Vallance, formerly a Big Pharma chief, was made a minister in Sir Keir Starmer’s government on the heels of his endorsement of Labour’s plans for Great British Energy, a publicly-owned company which will be charged with driving the zealously pushed Net Zero agenda. It is noteworthy that Vallance described the mission of driving Net Zero carbon emissions as ‘like the vaccine challenge’.

He said: ‘A national mission for clean power by 2030 is achievable and should be prioritised. We desperately need to end the era of high energy bills, excessive carbon emissions and energy insecurity by accelerating the transition to clean, homegrown energy. Britain can lead on this by treating this mission like the vaccine challenge. We can be the innovators and the implementers, helping ourselves and exporting our solutions worldwide. But if we choose to go slowly, others will provide the answers, and ultimately we’ll end up buying these solutions rather than selling them.’

It was under Vallance’s tenure as Chief Scientific Adviser that the Government’s fixated vaccine-based response to covid was heavily pushed. At the same time, off-label treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were not just ignored by Government but blacklisted. It appears these cheap drugs with their proven track record of long-term safety were the real challengers to the experimental ‘safe and effective’ gene therapies which were called vaccines.

It was also under Vallance’s leadership of the government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) that the heavy hammer of lockdowns – ‘one of the gravest governmental failures of modern times‘ – was brought down on the UK. This was although, only ten days prior to the nation being plunged into its first draconian lockdown, Vallance told Sky News about the government’s aim of building ‘herd immunity’ by letting ‘enough of us who are going to get mild illness to become immune’.

While leading Sage and in turn its subsidiary groups, SPI-B (which weaponised public fear to enforce covid regulations) and SPI-M (responsible for the infamously flawed ‘Lockdown Paper’ by Professor Neil Ferguson – I have written about both groups for TCW and my articles can be read here and here), Vallance came under fire by former PM Theresa May for presenting ‘dodgy data’ to the public to justify the nation’s second lockdown, which came into effect on November 5, 2020.

During the October 31, 2020 Downing Street press conference, key projections by Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling (SPI-M) containing major errors were presented to the public by Sir Patrick.

Sir Patrick showed a medium-term projection that had a top-end range of nearly 9,000 hospital admissions a day by December 8, 2020 (slide 4 shown above).

After strong criticism, the top-end range was revised down to just over 6,000 a day.

Slide 5 (seen below) also presented by Sir Patrick originally showed projected daily deaths in England at the top-end range of more than 1,400 by December 8.

This slide was also reissued with the top-end range revised down to around 1,000 deaths a day by December 8 (seen below).

A month prior, Sir Patrick was directly embroiled in another scandal, which I wrote about in my three-part investigative series ‘SAGE’s Covert Coup’ for TCW. The following is an extract from Part 1 of my report.

In September 2020 The Telegraph revealed that Sir Patrick Vallance, Government Chief Scientific Adviser, had £600,000 worth of shares in GlaxoSmithKline, which was contracted to develop a coronavirus vaccine. In December 2020 the British Medical Journal wrote that ‘by July the UK government had signed a coronavirus vaccine deal for an undisclosed sum with GlaxoSmithKline, securing 60million doses of an untested treatment that was still being developed.’ If this is not a blatant conflict of interest, I don’t know what is.

Vallance not only held GSK shares but was also President of Research and Development at GSK from 2012-2017. It was while he was President, in 2013, a partnership between GSK and the Gates Foundation was announced to ‘accelerate research into vaccines for global health needs’.

The then Health Secretary Matt ‘frighten the pants off everyone with the new strain‘ Hancock (no stranger to scandals himself ranging from care-home deaths; being forced to quit government after a coronavirus rule-breaching affair and embroiled in PPE contact scandals) denied that this was the case. According to The Standard:

When asked on LBC radio when he discovered the news of Sir Patrick’s personal shareholding, Mr Hancock said: ‘Well, I didn’t know about it until I read it in the newspapers.’

Pushed on whether he thought he should have been informed as Health Secretary, he replied: ‘No, not particularly. I think there are rules around this and it is important he abided by the rules.’

When evaluating Sir Patrick’s tenure as a government adviser, several concerning points emerge:

  • Lockdown advocacy: He was a key proponent of lockdowns, which the June 2023 Herby-Jonung-Hanke meta-analysis described as ‘a global policy failure of gigantic proportions’.
  • Vaccine promotion: He heavily promoted experimental covid vaccines labelled ‘safe and effective’ which have been linked to excess deaths in the Western world.
  • Conflict of interest: He held shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), raising significant ethical questions.

Now, the Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath has secured a powerful position within government by being aligned with its Net Zero agenda. Is he really a ‘man of science’ or does he have a self-serving agenda?

In tomorrow’s TCW Neville Hodgkinson will be reminding readers of the new ‘Science’ Minister’s role in the deliberate cover up of covid’s lab origin, and how ‘safe and effective’ claim for the jab – finally withdrawn earlier this year – was a lie from the start.
