🧵22 THINGS I’VE LEARNT ABOUT HUMANITY IN THE PAST 2 YEARS🦠💥

1. Most people would rather accept a lie as truth, than admit they were wrong. Many of those same people would forgo freedoms & accept punishments just to save face, and prolong the canopy of deceit.

More👇🏻 2. Millions of people struggle to comprehend the power and wealth mindset — and that just because an individual already has power and wealth, doesn’t mean they aren’t desperate for more of it. All lifestyles are relative, and naivety is a key component here.

🧵SCIENTISTS ADMIT MASS COVID-19 TESTING ARGUMENT RESTS ON A “HYPOTHESIS”🦠💥

With their influence waning, @IndependentSage has rebuked Gov plans to end “free” COVID-19 tests— urging the “immediate” publication of scientific evidence.

So, what is their own evidence? Read more👇🏻 So, for background, who exactly are Independent Sage?

They say they are a “group of scientists who are working together to provide independent scientific advice to the UK government and public on how to minimise deaths and support Britain’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.”

🧵FACE MASKS: HOW UNSCIENTIFIC SCIENCE IS MASKED AS “NEWS”🦠

New @cardiffuni research claims to show that mask wearers are more attractive than non-mask wearers.

Today, I’ll show you how dodgy data is used to influence public attitudes, & I’ll tell you EXACTLY how they do it👇🏻 So, on Thursday, Cardiff Uni published this news story on their website about a new scientific study suggesting “protective face masks make wearers look more attractive.”

It is framed around experts finding a “surprising new reason to mask up.”

🚨NOVAK DJOKOVIC’S DAD SPEAKS: “TONIGHT MY SON BECAME A LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD.”🚨

In a barnstorming interview to 🇷🇸 media, Srđan slammed “greedy and arrogant members of the world oligarchy” and suggested a global struggle for truth was underway.

#WeStandWithNovak
Read more👇🏻 “…the truth is like water and it always finds its way. Novak is the Spartacus of the new world who does not tolerate injustice, colonialism & hypocrisy, but fights for the equality of all people on the planet, regardless of their skin colour… and how much money they have.”

🧵NO-VAX DJOKOVIC: HERO OR VILLAIN?🦠

The Serbian tennis legend was today granted a “medical exemption” to appear at #AusOpen. He has been trending all day and lots have shared their views.

Here is why I think @DjokerNole deserves your wholehearted and unwavering support👇🏻🇷🇸 I’ll start off by saying, I understand those who feel disappointed in him for appearing at all.

There’s a valid argument to say, “by competing, & going through the rigmarole, he’s simply complying with a system of medical discrimination apartheid.”

Totally fair point. However..

🧵HUMAN COST OF ANTI-SCIENCE COVID MEASURES🦠

As some of you know, & for my sins, I’m a lifelong #AVFC fan. Born & bred a Brummie, I’ve followed them home & away for 32 yrs, through thick & thin.

I’ve attended every home game this season. Now, I am banned.
#NoVaccinePassports👇🏻 Football was always so much more than 22 men kicking a football around a pitch. It was a culture, a social activity, a release from the stresses of everyday life.

It’s why I attended multiple cup finals, celebrated family occasions there, & trekked to Sunderland on a Tues night.

🧵PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH, OR CHANGE YOUR SPEECH?🦠

A long-standing Tory MP has backed the idea of imposing lockdowns on unvaccinated people only.

Today, as all robust democracies should be free to do, I challenge these extreme views and expose a catalogue of rank hypocrisy👇🏻 Sir Gary Streeter — @garystreeterSWD — is the longest-serving MP in Devon and Cornwall and served as a junior minister under John Major’s Conservative Government.

In December 2018, it was announced that Streeter would receive a knighthood in the 2019 New Year Honours List.

🧵DO YOU WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE…🦠

Yesterday, after @PoliticsForAlI incorrectly labelled yesterday’s #FreedomMarch an “anti-Covid restrictions” rally, Twitter was awash with the usual suspects screaming: “What restrictions?”

Here is an open letter to them all👇🏻 Firstly, who am I referring to? Well, it would be dozens of these fine individuals who seemed *genuinely* puzzled that anyone would have anything to protest about right now.

Because, as one of them articulates, they are able to go shopping & have a pint. That’s freedom, right?

🧵THE WEAPONISATION OF WORDS🦠💥

The Tory Party, as it has done throughout the pandemic, is continuing to use communication techniques to push an agenda:

The Great Reset — #BuildBackBetter

Here’s how they do it, & why we all need to raise awareness of these deceitful tactics👇🏻 STEP 1: NORMALISATION
If you want a flavour of what Britain’s leading political party is now pushing, you only have to analyse its packed conference schedule #CPC21 which (thankfully) ends today.

Over the 4 days, there were 340 conference sessions, panel debates, & themed stands

🧵GUTTER JOURNALISM STRIKES AGAIN🦠💥

There was once a time, in the now dark & distant past, when journalists would craft their stories with balance and panache. Using credible sources to add “weight” to an article.

I’m about to tell you what today’s crop of “journalists” do👇🏻 But first, a bit of background. Yesterday @beverleyturner debated @DrNighatArif on @thismorning over the proposed rollout of Covid-19 vaccines to 12-year-old children.

Safe to say, it was a lively affair. But it’s important to note it was a more balanced interview than usual.

🧵THE PANDEMIC IMPACT ON CHILDREN🦠

The Children’s Society has published its tenth annual study on the wellbeing of young people, The Good Childhood Report 2021.

It paints a worrying picture of how some of our kids have fared during the pandemic.

More👇🏻
childrenssociety.org.uk/good-childhood The headlines include:

• roughly a quarter of a million (250k) children did not cope well with changes during the pandemic

• 42% of children are worried about new illnesses/pandemics

• 24% of children are ‘quite’ or ‘very’ worried about their mental health (vs 17% in 2019)

🧵WHY AREN’T WE TALKING ABOUT CARE HOMES?🦠

Today four brave care professionals, including a husband and wife, lift the lid on the appalling conditions facing residents and staff in England’s care homes, exacerbated by the looming mandatory vaccination deadline.

Read more👇🏻 Through their courageous & very personal testimonies, I can reveal an alleged litany of failings inc:

• care homes at breaking point & residents left to wet themselves in isolation

• staff sobbing in corridors & regularly working illegal shift patterns due to under resourcing

🧵PROTESTS: ARE WE GETTING IT RIGHT?🦠

I’m probably going to get pelters in some quarters for this but I feel it needs to be said.

I’ve often defended the protest organisers, however, I feel yesterday they got it badly wrong in London. Damagingly so.
I’m going to tell you why👇🏻 When I attended the march back in April, the beauty was the sheer diversity of people in attendance (as I wrote about at the time).

June and July was the same. You don’t attract a diverse crowd like that by focusing on niche topics — you do it by targeting key central themes.

🧵SHOCKING BBC AND NHS PROPAGANDA UNCOVERED🦠💥

You are not going to believe this one (or maybe you will), but bear with me. I had to triple check my figures on this just to reassure myself it was true.

And what’s more, this is likely to be happening every single day.
More👇🏻 Image Last night the esteemed @BBCHughPym, BBC health editor since March 2014, ran a seemingly alarming story about the Covid-19 situation in the North East, as you can see below.

With interviews from a respiratory consultant, medical director, elected city mayor, and local resident. Image

🧵BOUGHT AND PAID FOR MEDIA🦠

Yesterday evening, in the House of Commons, Members of Parliament were instructed to vote on some of the most important draft legislation in decades:

Health & Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2021👇🏻 British politicians were asked to support proposals that will effectively abandon long-held principles in this country of voluntary and informed consent, as outlined here in black and white on the NHS’ website.

A huge decision with wide-ranging moral and social ramifications.

🧵JOURNALISM IS DEAD🦠

Yesterday we all saw why.

For 16 months the government & its scientific advisors have avoided any kind of scrutiny. The Downing Street press conference sham is evidence; where “journalists” ask narrative-driven, pre-prepared & sanctioned questions👇🏻 When have you ever heard them ask about the China lab leak? About natural immunity? About the risks of the vaccines? About the flawed PCR tests? About the cost/benefit analysis of lockdowns? About the impartiality of SAGE? About the planned lies and fear? Never, is the answer.

📸🧵THE ONLY “PANDEMIC” IS A PANDEMIC OF HYPOCRISY🦠

The (powerful) people who have convinced you that draconian restrictions on your civil liberties are necessary to protect you from a killer pandemic are the same people who seem unconcerned about the rules themselves. More👇🏻 Image The controlled and morally bankrupt politicians mandate you to wear dehumanising face coverings, whilst refusing to do the same because the rules don’t apply to them. The deadly pandemic differentiates between classes of citizens, apparently. But at least they have warning tape.. Image

🧵IS THIS THE FUTURE YOU WANT?🤖

The Government has published a 110-page report on the future of human augmentation (HA), dubbed the “binding agent between the unique skills of humans & machines.”

It covers genetic engineering, future warfare, & brain-computer interfaces etc.👇🏻 In an Exec Summary, the Ministry of Defence paper says “we cannot wait for the ethics of human augmentation to be decided for us, we must be part of the conversation now. The ethical implications are significant but not insurmountable; early & regular engagement is essential.”

🧵MEDIA IS THE VIRUS - PART II🦠

I hoped things couldn’t top the @beverleyturner GMB interview & the lies Metro Newspapers published as a result (pinned). I freely admit I was wrong.

On Monday, @JeremyVineOn5 broadcast one of the most despicable segments I can recall. Why?👇🏻 Through presenter @theJeremyVine, they hosted a 30 min “debate” focused on the question: “Have vaccine refusers let the country down?”

The first thing to note is that this question is deliberately divisive, & there are questions over whether Beverley should’ve taken part at all.

🧵👇🏻

I might offend some of my former allies here as a former Brexit campaigner but frankly I’m not that bothered. Many of them are *every bit* as intolerant, conformist, brainwashed, and authoritarian as the lefties they profess to hate.

Why, you ask? Well it’s pretty simple.. They claim they wanted balance from the mainstream media, they claim they wanted something different to the normal.

The moment Dan Wooton did exactly that on GB News, and questioned the Covid orthodoxy and our Supreme Leader, they all went batshit crazy.

🧵MEDIA IS THE VIRUS🦠

I wonder whether, when @cydneyyeates of @Metro_Ents began her career in journalism, she really believed she would end up resorting to writing complete fabrications.

I don’t mean “I didn’t like what she wrote” I mean total lies👇🏻
metro.co.uk/2021/06/02/thi… Firstly, the 2nd and 3rd paragraph have just been copied and pasted from any government press release on vaccines. It gives a glimpse into the lack of actual “journalism” happening here. As a former journo myself, I can tell you that “word herder” is a far better description.
