Sir David King, a former chief scientific adviser, criticised the Government’s administration of the crisis and claimed minister’s consciously allowed coronavirus to spread.
Sir David King, who was the Government’s prime scientist from 2000-2007, said the shocking number of deaths was unjust and a total cock-up by the Government.
He said he founded the Independent SAGE group of experts to address the entire mash of the official response in the initial stages of the emergency.
Sir David attacked the Government of supporting the questionable idea of herd immunity, when a huge number of people get the disease, allowing for a level of immunity in the population.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock has repeatedly stated that herd immunity was never part of the Government’s coronavirus response but Sir David said the Prime Minister believed in the herd immunity programme and that the Prime Minister said that we had to be prepared for losing some of our loved ones and that every one of us had to be prepared.
So, Sir David said there was that expectation that they consciously allowed the virus to spread and Sir David said he set up the rival body of scientists due to the secrecy encompassing the Government’s SAGE committee at the start of the crisis.
He said the Government certainly didn’t want the public to know that Dominic Cummings was a member of that committee and he said that you shouldn’t have an adviser to the Prime Minister, who isn’t a scientist because then you’ve got two sources of possibly contradictory advice.
Sir David said faith in the Government had been corroded through the pandemic and condemned Boris Johnson for failing to adhere to the truth and he added that it seemed that Boris Johnson always says what he believes is convenient.
Senior Tory backbencher Charles Walker said it had become difficult for Conservative MPs to support the Government due to the climate of uncertainty and he said that too often it looks like the Government licks its fingers and sticks them in the air to see which way the wind is blowing.
And that it had become increasingly difficult for backbenchers to support and defend government’s policy because so often that policy is amended or discarded without warning.
Whether that approach is on purpose or by chance, the climate of uncertainty it creates is unsustainable and corrodes confidence and we’re being butchered by the Government.
And adding to this huge international scare and promoting even more separation and fear into our society is the mainstream media and death and the fear of death brings in the money and the business for these media peers, and for certain Government departments whom, at present, are promoting the virus through mainstream politics and are using the media to spread their agenda.
But not only that, this fella sat back and watched the Government annihilate the people with this virus and now only comes out to condemn the Government, but where was he throughout all of this?
It’s a bit like the NHS chucking infected grannies into care homes to initiate mass carnage – Hitler comes to mind! And they seem to be using the concentration camp guard defence for murder “My boss told me to do it, but I knew they were going to be killed”.
But saying that, Sir David King also seems to be a disgruntled has been and he was nowhere to be seen at the start of this crisis but now appears after the battle to bayonet the wounded.
