It’s very concerning that #UsforThemUK are being given platforms to spread #COVIDDisinformation on @GMB & on @bbc5live .

They’re NOT a grass roots parents group & have links to many @Conservatives & to #Antivax groups.

You should know this @susannareid100 @RobbieRinder

😷s are just 1 part of an array of mitigations needed in schools (+other indoor spaces) to ⬇️#COVID19 transmission.

#LivingWithCOVID is a complete misnomer, it’s a lazy, irresponsible, selfish & unscientific approach that’ll result in many AVOIDABLE deaths.
Is that ok with U?
Whilst child deaths from #COVID19 are thankfully uncommon, did you know that 1 child per week has been dying in 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿for many weeks now?
Many 1000s of children have #LongCovid & 100s have lost parents or v close relatives.

Let those numbers sink in @RobbieRinder .

1/ Morning @JamesMelville 👋….I see you and your #CovidDisinformation pals on @talkRADIO are still at it.

Could I suggest that you speak to someone who actually knows what’s going on in the #NHS before debating a really important topic live on the radio?
2/ If you don’t know/understand all the issues at play in our perfect storm of #COVID19UK, #GPCrisis & #NHSCrisis then as journalists, your duty is to find out rather than whip up more anti #NHS sentiment.

We’ve got more than enough of that to deal w/ already, I can assure you👇🏼
3/ A quick example ➡️

Yesterday a 17yr old (X) attended a local WIC with mild upper respiratory tract symptoms.

X had a through examination, a detailed explanation, reassurance & good safety-netting, all documented.

Hi again @JuliaHB1, I haven’t got time today to produce the very long list of ways in which you have played an active part in the relentless spread of #COVIDDisinformation, which has directly contributed to the catastrophic situation we are now in….
…..But for now, would you be able to comment on the fact that you signed the letter from #UsforThemUK to @GavinWilliamson & #DfE requesting that 😷s be removed from 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿secondary schools in the summer term.…
The push to remove 😷s from 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿secondary schools during a pandemic has been disastrous, detrimental not only to pupils health & wellbeing (& that of their families) but to their education too.

You & your co-signatories are responsible for a lot of avoidable harm & suffering.

There are many layers to the #Covid19UK human catastrophe but IMO it’s all DELIBERATE @mrjamesob

Not even @BorisJohnson is so ignorant that he can’t understand the seriousness of what is currently unfolding.

The crux is - HE WANTS IT TO HAPPEN!

@sajidjavid @JonAshworth
If you were looking for the perfect foil for the #BrexitShambles & #NHSPrivatisation in one fell swoop AND you wanted to divert attention from the cronyism & corruption being uncovered every single day….you’d create as much chaos, fear & desperation as possible….
….carefully positioning your scapegoats (the EU/drs/nurses/teachers/refugees….

You’d allow #COVIDDisinformation to run riot, including from the @UKHSA (& conveniently replace #PHE), whilst churning out a #COVIDisOver narrative through a compliant media.

Is anyone at @thismorning interested in knowing that #BeverleyTurner is advocating the use of #Ivermectin for “home based treatment” of #COVID19?

Not satisfied w/ the relentless spreading of #COVIDDisinformation she’s now pushing a drug that has no benefit.
Anyone would think the #WorldCouncilForHealth had a vested interest in promoting it’s guide and the use of Ivermectin?

@Ofcom @ITV @Matthew_Wright #ThisMorning #BeverleyTurner
And imagine my surprise when I saw the list of Steering Group Members included @AnnadeBuisseret - a prominent #antivaxxer who has been inciting HATRED & VIOLENCE towards HCPs?

Well this is interesting…

I didn’t know that @richardm56 was a signatory on this letter👇🏼 from #UsForThemUK to the then Education Secretary @GavinWilliamson regarding the use of 😷s in UK schools?

@susannareid100 @DrHilaryJones @benshephard @GMB…
Would one expect someone with a record of being a #COVIDMinimiser & of spreading #COVIDDisinformation to be presenting a daily breakfast programme with such a large audience?

IMO it’s a question @GMB & @richardm56 must answer!

@SunderlandLolly @mariannaspring @ITV
The list includes some of the usual suspects of course ….@hartgroup_org members - no surprises there!

@DrHoenderkamp & #AllisonPearson obviously wouldn’t have wanted to miss out.

I almost smiled when I saw the name of my old friend #FrancisHoar - such a nice chap!

The continual references to “with the benefit of hindsight” are simply not going to wash.

There are far too many of us who know EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED & tragically STILL IS.


@BorisJohnson @10DowningStreet @Conservatives @Jeremy_Hunt @SC_HealthSocial @Keir_Starmer
Mr Johnson may feel a degree of safety hidden away from scrutiny on holiday, but there are literally 1000s of us who’ve been begging for a pragmatic, intelligent & compassionate response to #COVID19UK - we will not go quietly!

@AppgCoronavirus @LaylaMoran @CarolineLucas
There’s only so much insensitive, offensive & ignorant bluster we will tolerate…HONESTY & ACCOUNTABILITY are needed now.

The buck stops at the doors of @10DowningStreet, or maybe a luxury villa in #Marbella🤔?

Many @Conservatives have given their support to @educationgovuk ‘s unconscionable #LetAllChildrenGetCovid “policy”.

They know there’ll be SIGNIFICANT COLLATERAL DAMAGE in the form of human suffering - Avoidable, preventable deaths, illness, #LongCovid & grief.

Dr Harries & the @UKHSA are clearly “on board” w/ the #LivingWithCovid strategy & our CMO & CSA are unable or unwilling to speak out to protect us.
Children, staff & families are being sacrificed to perpetuate the lie that schools are safe & keep parents at work.

See the attached thread w/ numerous smiley #Tory faces.

Without their support (& relentless #COVIDDisinformation) #UsForThem & #HART’s mission to remove all mitigations from UK schools may have failed.

For anyone who hasn’t realised just how deep the #BackToNormal lunacy runs, take a look at some of the “nearly 50” @Conservatives who are actively supporting @UsforThemUK’s dangerous & irresponsible campaign to make 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools #COVID19 MITIGATION-FREE!

The ring-leader is @SteveBakerHW, of #CRG AND #ERG fame. Neither he or his #CRG mate @Mark_J_Harper appear to have any understanding of #airborne viral transmission.
Mr Harper’s clearly also a fan of the unscientific & reckless #LivingWithCovid mindset.

But it’d be unfair to give @halfon4harlowMP ALL the credit for causing unnecessary harm & suffering.

Several other high profile @Conservatives are members of the @UsforThemUK support group.

Some of the “usual suspects”-
@MPIainDS @SirGrahamBrady @DesmondSwayne @EstherMcVey1

This is v disturbing from @halfon4harlowMP
It’s clear that the CHAIR of @CommonsEd has absolutely no understanding of the significance of the #COVID19 #DeltaVariant & is a cheer leader of #COVIDIsOver idiocy!
Watch it for yourself….his entire focus is on PRE-PANDEMIC “NORMALITY” for SCHOOLS, pushing back against bubbles, any sort of restrictions & makes no mention at all of how to protect CV/CEV children, families or staff as cases rise.
@ChildrensComm @Rachel_deSouza @cv_cev
His views on consent for 12-15yr olds are obvious.
Is it possible he will be able to intervene in @CMO_England’s decision?
Does he have training in advising <16yr olds on such important matters?
Has he even heard of #GillickCompetency?

The thread from April👇🏼 is especially relevant as 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools reopen w/ almost ZERO MITIGATIONs to ⬇️#coronavirus transmission/protect people.

Sept 1st 21 -“numbers” many English ppl have become immune to, a stark reminder of a @Conservatives brutal #LivingWithCovid “policy”.
Almost 36,000 new cases.
842 hospital admissions.
207 deaths.

That is roughly 37,000 individuals/families affected by #COVID, yesterday alone!
And potentially 3,600 more cases of #LongCovid to boot!

This is what #LivingWithCovid looks like folks!

@sajidjavid @JonAshworth
And by pure coincidence this is what a lazy, ignorant, selfish, cruel & greedy “strategy” against a global pandemic looks like too.


This is the purest form of #SurvivalOfTheFittest, a plan so grotesque I didn’t think it possible in modern Britain.

@dr_musgrave,I’m struggling to see how you can justify tweeting these comments as a medical practitioner…It is almost as if you are living/working in a parallel universe?

In the NorthEast the #NHS is under huge pressure & elective surgery has again been cancelled due to #Covid.
A v good friend/teacher (doubly vaccinated)has recently been v unwell, she caught #COVID19 from a pupil in her class.
Many other teachers in the school became ill.

In the few weeks before the end of term, #COVID19 literally ripped through #NorthEast schools & communities.
I am certain that no one wants children to be off school unnecessarily but if cases in school children spiral out of control once more, education will almost certainly be disrupted, again affecting children in the most deprived areas the most.

I’m not sure who to report this to, but YET AGAIN @halfon4harlowMP, the CHAIR of @CommonsEd is OPENLY LINKING HIMSELF to #UsForThemUK who are #antimask #antivax, anti - ANY #COVID mitigation in schools.

This is NOT OK!

@LaylaMoran @AppgCoronavirus @ChildrensComm @NAHTnews
#UsForThemUK are linked to #CRG & other @Conservatives MPs, #HARTGroup & others, who’re relentlessly spreading #CovidDisinformation in the name of putting “children first”.

NO ONE who cares about the health & wellbeing of children should be promoting them.
They’re part of a web of ANTI-MITIGATION “campaigners” who want schools to open in Sept WITHOUT ANY PROTECTIONS against #COVID19 in place for 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿pupils, staff & families.

Every HT needs to know that the pupils in THEIR CARE, almost all of whom are unvaccinated, are NOT SAFE!

Hello MSM👋 waiting for someone to expose the SCANDAL of #COVID19UK, our children & young ppl.

The web of players, the links to the #CRG & other @Conservatives MPs, @hartgroup_org, @UsforThemUK, #GreatBarringtonDeclaration advocates, @Telegraph @Daily_Express journalists……1/11
The relentless stream of #COVIDDisinformation, which has been supported & retweeted by a small group of “like minded” medical professionals who should know better.

I’ve absolutely no doubt that issues w/ 2nd vaccines for 18-30yr olds & the pause on 12-18yr old 💉s are linked.
Is it too cynical to believe that withholding full vaccination of the <30s & not vaccinating even CV/CEV 12-18yr olds during the summer holidays is related to a desire to INCREASE #coronavirus TRANSMISSION as part of the #HerdImmunityByInfection “strategy”……with a NOVEL VIRUS!!

Listening to @RicHolden makes me want to scream.
NO! We are NOT in a lockdown & no one is asking for all restrictions to go on for “in perpetuity”.
#Tory MPs are spreading relentless #COVIDDisinformation
His comments are as unscientific as they are dangerous.1/5 @claremcdonnell1
#COVIDisAirborne #MasksSaveLives - SIMPLE! I’m seeing the direct result of these figures & graphics in #Newcastle EVERY DAY.
As I said y’day- the #NorthEast is a RAGING #COVID fire!
Irresponsible, reckless, callous & ignorant views spewed daily from the mouths of @conservatives.
There is another way ➡️ listen to the 1000+ experts (drs & scientists) who signed the letter that was published in @TheLancet last week.
Listen to @WHO!
This #Conservative government do not have our best interests at heart!
@RicHolden - you are in the #NorthEast FGS!

Dangerous #covid19 disinformation in Canada & elsewhere. A thread. #cdnpoli #CovidCanada
Let’s begin with AIER, The American Institute For Economic Research. #AIER is a libertarian “think tank”, largely funded by the Koch Network. AIER is behind such large scale propaganda offensives as “The Great Barrington Declaration”. A thoroughly debunked piece of disinformation
AIER disinformation has been so successful & pervasive that even formerly respected authors peddle their nonsense.
Incidentally, Naomi Wolfe happens to be a “Visiting Senior Fellow” at #AIER. #cdnpoli #COVID19 #COVIDdisinformation
