TODAY, the last day of Parliament before it goes into recess for the party conferences, with the Coronavirus Act about to be renewed without so much as a debate, marks the end of yet another session in which the Government has bulldozed its illiberal agenda through unimpeded.
Vaccine passports are still on the cards; refuseniks are held hostage under Grant Shapps’s travel apartheid rules and face other social punishments; against the advice of their own vaccination committee, and without any idea of informed consent, the vaccine juggernaut has begun rolling through schools on the most specious of justifications of one man, a chief medical officer who has repeatedly demonstrated his scant regard for the nation’s health and wellbeing; and we have a government so emboldened that they will stop at nothing to force compliance with this mass experiment on the population.
Neville Hodgkinson, the former medical and science correspondent at the Sunday Times and the author of AIDS: The Failure of Contemporary Science, began writing for TCW Defending Freedom just before Christmas last year. No journalist has done more than he to unpeel the story, the science and corruption of Covid politics, and to lay the reality bare to the best of his dispassionate ability.
He is pulling back to work on two projects that are important to him, and today’s edition of TCW Defending Freedom is devoted to his final comments on this odyssey. We think his overview and analysis of this period is not just masterly, but deserves our readers’ full and undivided attention. When you read it you might keep one salient fact in mind – one he refers to – that the justification for all the continued government-imposed social and economic destruction and division since the start of this man-made pandemic is the less than 0.2 per cent proportion of virus-infected patients who die.
I leave you to read his analysis of how we could possibly have accepted the abandonment of so much for so little – for what’s turned out statistically to be not much worse than a bad flu.
This is the first time we have devoted the site to one article. It is a mark of our appreciation for Neville’s work, which has brought respect to the site, and many new readers. We will be adding more posts from lunchtime.
