Brilliant holding-to-account from @JuliaHB1. Worth listening to it all.
The developing world don’t need Covid vaccines above all else. ‘No one is safe until everyone is safe’ is a dangerous creed. Lockdowns have caused hunger, more preventable disease and poverty in developed world. And our policy makers in governments and WHO etc knew it would.

Lockdowns have caused harms in the developed world too, but I meant to draw attention to the disproportionate harm in the developing world, where Covid is a very long way down a list of problems.

Simon Stevens has said that 20,426 people are being treated for Covid in hospitals in England, which is higher than the previous peak of about 19,000 in April.

This compares two absolute numbers, but there are serious problems.…
1. It’s winter and we always have more patients in winter than we do in April. For background context let’s compare occupancy and ICU for this December with previous Decembers going back 5 years.
2. Numerically there are more patients but just presenting that as a crude statistic is disingenuous because we also have more beds nationally than April. Without the occupancy % figures it’s impossible for anyone to understand what the inpatient numbers mean.

My feature The Detransitioners 🦎 was the third most read story in the Times and Sunday Times in 2020.

Thank you to @km_km_km_ and @thesundaytimes for running it and being an absolute dream to work with.…
I was warned to expect a backlash, and had a few refusals. But this was an important story and I knew I could tell it with compassion and integrity. The women who trusted me and took part are truly brave and have lived several lifetimes in one.
Creativity, investigation and social documentary must be intrepid, honest and from the heart. There’s more to come from me in 2021!

On 19 Nov there was a coordinated campaign of over 300 tweets, comprised of accounts which look genuine and some which seem to be bots.

Who initiated this campaign and who deployed these accounts to push for online censorship?
This is a thread containing some information, some questions, and not many firm answers. The campaign was clumsy enough to be spotted, and it was interestingly timed.
Also 19 Nov, MP Damian Collins took part in a debate about #OnlineHarms

A vaccine seems like the happy ending to the horrible story of 2020, but happy endings are not written in the language of coercive control, emotional manipulation and threats.
This is an example:…

Another example is health ministers threatening mandation which would need changes to the law.
This will not go well. At best it is counter-productive and will be socially divisive. At worst people will lose more trust in government & science.

Happy endings do not include the loss of bodily autonomy and free will or the splitting of society.
