Journalist Michael Venutolo-Mantovani wrote an article for the Guardian in which he said, “I’m going to miss being locked down,” while pining for another.

Yes, really.

“When I walked out of my town’s massive conference center in early April, a second Pfizer shot fresh in my arm, a flood of emotions swelled in me. Creeping behind the feelings of joy and anticipation, I felt a strange bit of sadness that, all the way home, I could not shake. When I walked into my house and my three-year-old dashed into my arms, it hit me,” wrote Venutolo-Mantovani.

“I think I’m going to miss being locked down, I realised, in disbelief.”

The journalist goes on to explain how he is “calmed by the idea of another potential lockdown, or at least growing restrictions,” in response to the delta variant of COVID.

The main thrust of the argument is that the lockdown gave Venutolo-Mantovani an excuse to slow down, not have to go into the office, and spend more time with his family.

That’s all well and good, but he could have chosen to do that anyway without the need for unprecedented, authoritarian lockdowns that have ruined countless relationships, marriages, careers, small businesses, led to a sharp spike in suicides and caused untold number of deaths from future poverty and serious illnesses going untreated.

“Wow, what a loser!” responded Christopher Snowdon.

Other respondents on Twitter expressed similar feelings.

“I want to be paid money for sitting on my arse or permanently work from home in my cushty £40k+ a year job while the working classes deliver me parcels from Amazon and my weekly Waitrose shop whilst I patronisingly clap them on my doorstep,” joked one.

“They had to close the Humber Bridge during one of the lockdowns, because of the huge increase in people jumping off it. But, hey, as long as he got to “re evaluate” his life,” added another.

“I secretly pine for [*checks notes*] the brutal criminalisation of the social lives of other people, financial ruin for small business owners and the imprisonment of the elderly away from their family, to name just a few highlights, because I can’t be arsed to dress up for work,” remarked another.

As we highlighted back in March, after a year of lockdowns, over half of Brits said they would miss either “some” or “many” aspects of lockdown.

It appears as though many people are genuinely so spineless and lazy, they’ll happily trade their freedoms so long as they can be paid by the government to sit on their backside at home and do next to nothing.

Well, Isn’t This Fascinating?

Yellow journalism at its finest.

A story in the Express claimed that a father furiously blamed “anti-vaxxers” for his daughter dying from COVID, despite the fact that the woman died in March 2020, before COVID-19 vaccines were available.

Whoops!

Poll Finds Only 10% of Americans Trust Media on COVID, 30% Trust Fauci

Only 15.5% trust Biden.

A new poll has found that just 10 per cent of Americans trust the media when it comes to information about COVID-19, while just over 30 per cent trust Anthony Fauci.

Wow.

The survey was conducted by NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ.

It asked participants, “When it comes to information about COVID-19, which of the following sources would you say you trust? Select all that apply.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci: 30.8%
Federal health authorities like the CDC and the FDA: 49.8%
Your doctor: 63.2%
President Biden: 15.5%
The news media: 10.2%

Put it another way, almost 90 per cent of Americans don’t trust the media when it comes to COVID and fewer than one in five trust Joe Biden.

No wonder Biden is begging social media companies to engage in even more censorship of information relating to COVID-19.

The numbers are even more staggering when one considers the fact that 73.9 per cent of respondents are vaccinated.

The poll also found that 51.8 per cent of Americans think the pandemic will “never” be over, compared to 30 per cent who think it will be over in a year.

The poll has a margin of error of 5.8 per cent.

With Biden’s approval rating having sunk to a new record low, the regime really has been taking a lot of L’s recently.

British Government Used “Propagandistic” Fear Tactics to Scare Public Into Mass Compliance

Behavioral scientist who co-founded Downing Street nudge unit speaks out.

The British government used “propagandistic” fear tactics to scare the public into mass compliance during the first COVID lockdown, according to a behavioral scientist who worked inside Downing Street.

Simon Ruda co-founded Number 10’s ‘Nudge Unit’, which was initially set up to encourage positive behavioral changes in the British public without the need for coercion or legislation, but was weaponized during the pandemic to create scaremongering.

“In my mind, the most egregious and far-reaching mistake made in responding to the pandemic has been the level of fear willingly conveyed on the public,” wrote Ruda.

“That fear seems to have subsequently driven policy decisions in a worrying feed-back loop,” he added, noting that such actions amounted to “state sanctioned propaganda.”

The behavioral scientist said that an obsession with daily case numbers came to dominate thinking, serving to spread even more fear.

That process included grossly exaggerating the threat posed by COVID and producing lurid, alarmist propaganda to frighten the population into subservience.

As we previously highlighted, scientists in the UK working as advisors for the government admitted using what they now concede to be “unethical” and “totalitarian” methods of instilling fear in the population in order to control behavior during the pandemic.

The London Telegraph reported the comments made by Members of the Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Behaviour (SPI-B), a sub-committee of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) the government’s chief scientific advisory group.

The report quotes a briefing from March 2020, as the first lockdown was decreed, that stated the government should drastically increase “the perceived level of personal threat” that the virus poses because “a substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened.”

One scientist with the SPI-B admits that, “In March [2020] the Government was very worried about compliance and they thought people wouldn’t want to be locked down. There were discussions about fear being needed to encourage compliance, and decisions were made about how to ramp up the fear.”

The unnamed scientist added that, “The way we have used fear is dystopian.”

The scientist further confessed that, “The use of fear has definitely been ethically questionable. It’s been like a weird experiment. Ultimately, it backfired because people became too scared.”

The fearmongering campaign clearly worked.

By the summer of 2020, the average Brit thought 6-7% of the population of the UK had died from coronavirus, a figure equating to around 4.5 million people.

At the time, COVID-19 had actually claimed around 40,000 lives.

But don’t worry, all this is of no importance whatsoever, because ‘fact checkers’ have ruled that ‘mass formation psychosis’ isn’t a thing that happened at all during the pandemic.
