🧵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
From the 340 sessions, almost a third (31.9%) had the following words in the title:

• Levelling up: 10.3%
• Build Back Better (or variation): 4.1%
• Green/climate change/environment: 5.8%
• Carbon/Net zero: 7%
• Covid/pandemic: 4.7%

These are today’s closing speeches…

🧵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.
Both guests had opportunity to speak, and the presenters remained largely impartial throughout.

Dr Arif was representing an organisation called @projecthalo which is part of the United Nations “Verified” initiative. It is regularly promoted by big tech companies like YouTube.

🧵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)
• 61% of parents reported the ‘slight’ or ‘very’ negative impact homeschooling had on family life

• 43% of parents said there had been a ‘slight’ or ‘very’ negative impact on children’s happiness in the household

• the pandemic ‘might have exacerbated existing inequalities’

🧵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
• “endless pressure” and “bullying” from central HR teams to coerce employees into having the vaccine

• mental health insinuations against those choosing not to be vaccinated

• minimum wage carers pressurised into work when previously sick, who now face losing their jobs.

🧵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.
Themes like lockdown, like vaccine passports, and like bodily autonomy/mandatory vaccinations. Issues that have a solid foundation from which to argue our point of view; issues which, with some gentle persuasion, members of the public at large could/should get energised about.

🧵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.

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
It featured as a segment on the 6 o’clock news, 10 o’clock news, @BBCNEandCumbria, as well as being one of the top stories online (see screenshot).

I have no way of calculating the audience reach but we can safely assume it was into the millions, nationwide and regionally. 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.
Not since the nineteenth century, 1898 to be precise, has the UK entertained the idea of compulsory vaccination, recognising the moral, religious, & scientific objections of doing so.

Yet this amended legislation would compel *anyone* entering a care home setting to be jabbed.

🧵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.
Those questions are only ever asked by the public on forums like Twitter- never by journalists - & even then Big Tech censor many of these important questions.

The result has been the rise of the Covid cult (💙), of covidians, a movement steeped in ideology rather than science.

📸🧵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
They invoke war rhetoric as they demand you don’t leave your local area, raising panic and fear. Then they leave their own local areas at will. Why? Because, of course, they are politicians and the rules of the pandemic don’t apply to them. 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.”
In the same section, it goes on to state “ethical perspectives on human augmentation will change and this could happen quickly.

“There may be a moral obligation to augment people, particularly in cases where it promotes wellbeing or protects us from novel threats.”

🧵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.
The classic divide and rule tactics of the mainstream media have come to the fore over the past 16 months and one train of thought is that Beverley’s attendance is feeding the perpetual poison on our screens.

But, to her credit, she decided to speak about a topic she believes in

🧵👇🏻

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.
“I didn’t sign up to this Boris bashing, I’m turning off,” “this is even worse than the BBC,” were some of the more inane responses.

Let’s be clear: the MSM have given our prat of a PM a completely free ride for 15 months, as have the opposition, to utterly destroy this country.

🧵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.
But of course the main lie here is the attempt to completely switch realities and discredit the only person in that discussion (@beverleyturner) who was actually speaking the truth. Not my truth, the unarguable, demonstrable truth.

I’m sick of the mainstream media lying so👇🏻

#londonprotest 🧵👇🏻

For those claiming Saturday was some kind of “hijacking” by “controlled opposition” I suggest you watch this 20 min on camera debrief by one of the main organisers.

I want to address some of the points I’ve read in the hours since.
Claim 1: “It was hijacked,” one v well known account said.

This is a demonstrable lie. An event poster before the march clearly states that: “from now on our marches will be taking things up a notch & sending a message. We will no longer be scenically walking through Ldn.” Image
“But instead going on slightly longer routes through community areas to spread the message of awareness.”

So this was very much planned, whether you agree with it or not. For anyone who walked the route, you will have seen dozens of people watching and filming from...
