Scientists, MPs Ask ‘Where Is Evidence Of 70% More Contagious Mutant COVID?’

Oxford University Professor: “I’ve been doing this job for 25 years and I can tell you can’t establish a quantifiable number in such a short time frame.”

As London and the entire South East of the UK was plunged into a fresh lockdown over the weekend, scores of countries have banned all travel to and from the UK, but scientists there are demanding to see any evidence that there is a 70% more contagious mutant strain of COVID, having not been shown anything by the government.

The Daily Mail reports that Carl Heneghan, Professor of Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford University’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care, has expressed scepticism over the 70 per cent figure. 

“I’ve been doing this job for 25 years and I can tell you can’t establish a quantifiable number in such a short time frame,” Heneghan said.

“Every expert is saying it’s too early to draw such an inference,” the professor added.

“I would want to have very clear evidence rather than ‘we think it’s more transmissible’ so we can see if it is or not,” Heneghan continued.

“It has massive implications, it’s causing fear and panic, but we should not be in this situation when the Government is putting out data that is unquantifiable,” the professor further urged.

“They are fitting the data to the evidence. They see cases rising and they are looking for evidence to explain it,” Heneghan declared.

The ‘mutant strain’ has been circulating since September, according to the government, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson using it to justify literally cancelling Christmas.

However, Professor Heneghan emphasised that if this strain really is that much more contagious “we should be locking down the whole country”.

Within minutes of Johnson making the announcement that London and the South East would be locked down at midnight on Saturday, thousands of people crammed into train stations in an attempt to escape to other parts of the country.

While people in London are unable to travel, hundreds of flights from everywhere continued to land at and take off from the city’s airports over the weekend.

The data the government has on the ‘new strain’ off COVID comes from analysis by advisory body The New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (Nervtag).

No one has seen the data, with the Prim Minster noting it is “early data, “subject to review” but “It’s the best we have at the moment.”

Announcing the previously non-existent ‘Tier four’ restriction level, Johnson added it was happening because of a “change in the science”:

Some conservative MPs, who were already rebelling against the tier 3 lockdown, have called for all the scientific evidence the government has to be made public.

The government was accused of being ‘bounced by the science’, with former Tory leader Iain Duncan Smith noting that Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty and Chief Scientific Adviser Sir Patrick Vallance are ‘stepping back into the shadows when it suits them’.

“‘Why did they not alert ministers to the dangers earlier? Especially when, as we now know, scientists learnt about this mutation back in September,” Duncan-Smith asked.

Former minister Sir Desmond Swayne said “it does have all the characteristics of the Government being bounced by the science, as it was right at the beginning of the arrangements when we first went into lockdown last March.”

“The arrangements for Christmas were explicitly voted on by Parliament. If they’re to be changed then in my view, Parliament should vote again,” Swayne added.

“Parliament voted explicitly for a certain set of arrangements, it seems to be perfectly proper therefore that Parliament should be consulted when those are changed, irrespective of the Government acting in an emergency, nevertheless it’s perfectly proper to recall Parliament at the beginning of this week to at least ratify those changes,” the MP continued.

Swayne noted that MPs haven’t even been given any evidence to justify the heightened restrictions, and that a third of the country was effectively imprisoned via a press conference.

“Explain to us – we are after all a democracy, explain to the elected representatives the evidence that they have and why they’ve reached this decision,” Swayned emphasised.

The MP charged that the government purposefully waited until parliament had started its break for Christmas before making the announcement, in order to avoid a rebellion.

“They’ve been looking at it since September and how convenient when Parliament went into recess on Thursday suddenly they were then able to produce this revelation,” Swayne noted.

“Let’s see the evidence then, let’s have Parliament back and show us and convince us, come clean,” he urged, adding “I want Parliament to be recalled so we can scrutinise properly in a democracy decisions that are being made which affect our economy radically and our liberty.”

UK: Police Break Down Door, Arrest Man For Violating COVID Quarantine Rules

Faces up to 10 years in jail.

Published

A video shows police in the UK smashing down a man’s door and arresting him for violating COVID quarantine rules.

The shocking clip shows a woman, presumed to be the man’s wife or girlfriend, recording the front door to the property as glass flies into the house while officers break in.

The woman accuses the police of committing criminal damage and threatens to take them to court as a panicked dog runs up the stairs, narrowly avoiding being hit by the glass.

“You’re supposed to be here to protect us!” the woman shouts as the police enter the house.

The two officers ask the woman to step out of the way as she demands their badge numbers.

“Where’s your warrant?” she asks them.

“Martin, you’re under arrest for a breach of COVID regulations, you failed to quarantine in a designated hotel when instructed to do so,” the man is told as handcuffs are slapped on him.

It’s not known where the incident took place, but judging by the accents of those involved it likely took place in or near Liverpool.

Under current UK coronavirus law, people can be fined £5,000 for merely attempting to travel abroad without good reason.

Anyone who lies about where they have returned to the country from or anyone who fails to quarantine in a hotel upon return faces a fine of up to £10,000 and a prison sentence of up to 10 years in jail.

Rand Paul: Fauci Is A “Petty Tyrant”

“His only real theme is ‘do what I say’ even when it makes no sense”

Senator Rand Paul reacted to Anthony Fauci’s declaration that Americans should still not be socialising despite having been vaccinated by labelling the White House medical advisor a “petty tyrant”.

Fauci appeared on MSNBC Sunday and announced that people should still be refraining from eating and drinking together indoors, as well as suggesting that the vaccinated may need more ‘booster’ shots to maintain protection against the coronavirus.

Senator Paul hit back at Fauci, accusing him of  ignoring “100 years of vaccine science”.

Paul added that Fauci’s “only real theme is ‘do what I say’ even when it makes no sense.”

“If you’ve recovered or been vaccinated – go about your life. Eat, drink, work, open the schools,” Paul continued, adding “Enough with the petty tyrants!”

Paul also tweeted links to recent stories of mask madnsss, including the firing of a track coach for not forcing athletes to wear masks during races, and that of a pregnant mother removed from church by police for not wearing a mask.

The Senator also urged Americans to get vaccinated “if you think you need or want it” and then to throw away the masks and reclaim freedom:

Paul has repeatedly clashed with Fauci over the latter’s obsession with masks and lack of clarity on the science of the COVID pandemic.

Most recently, two weeks ago, Paul urged Fauci to follow the CDC’s latest findings that the vaccinated do not carry the virus:

The Senator clashed with Fauci last month, telling him “You’ve been vaccinated and you parade around in two masks for show. You can’t get it again.” 

“There’s virtually zero percent chance you’re going to get it and you’re telling people that have had the vaccine who have immunity — You’re defying everything we know about immunity by telling people to wear masks who have been vaccinated,” Paul charged during the hearing.

Fauci has repeatedly flip flopped on the efficacy of masks, and has admitted that there is little science behind lockdown restrictions.

Nevertheless, Facui still will not drop the mask charade, even suggesting that the world needs to carry on wearing them into 2022, and that children should be wearing them in order to play together, until they are all vaccinated from the age of 6 months old.

People on Volcano-Stricken Island Told They Won’t Be Rescued if They Haven’t Had the COVID Vaccine

Cruise ships will only evacuate the inoculated.

People on the volcano-stricken island of St. Vincent have been told by the country’s Prime Minister that they won’t be rescued if they haven’t taken the COVID vaccine.

Yes, really.

Cruise ships were dispatched to evacuate the island after the 4,000-foot high volcano La Soufrière erupted on Friday.

However, Ralph Gonsalves, the Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, gave a press conference warning that those who hadn’t taken the jab would be left to fend for themselves.

“The chief medical officer would be identifying the persons already vaccinated so that we can get them on the ship,” Gonsalves said.

16,000 people are being evacuated from the ‘red zone’ areas of the island that are most at risk, but that number won’t include those who for whatever reason haven’t taken the shot.

“If people are willing to welcome you at a time of COVID-19, they will wish you to have the highest level of protection possible,” Gonsalves told the media.

According to local officials, some people don’t want to be evacuated because they are scared they’ll be forced to take the vaccine.

This is another example of how vaccination status is being used by governments around the world to deny people basic necessities, including being rescued from a natural disaster.

Numerous countries are preparing to implement vaccine passports which would deny the unvaccinated from entering certain venues, which could eventually extend to pubs, restaurants, cinemas and shops.
