It seems that Chris Whitty, the man who ensured hundreds of folks with covid were put into old folks homes to act as superspreaders among the most vulnerable, who has served up bogus forecast after bogus forecast as gospel to justify lockdown measures that have been proven not to work is to get a Knighthood. A poster on LinkedIn greets this with a post featuring a picture of the chief doom-monger and says “A true legend and absolute gentleman. He deserves this! Congratulations Sir.” I replied:
“a total charlatan who has wrecked lives with forecasts he knew were false & with measures data shows do not work. Another reason why the UK honours system stinks. Jabbing 12 year olds against a disease that will kill almost none of them? This man should be put on trial.”
What I write is either a legitimate opinion or justified by fact. We do now know that the forecasts Whitty trumpeted were worst case scenario forecasts but he said they were the only forecasts,knowing that not to be the case. So he lied. Those forecasts and the measures he implemented wrecked lives. Think of those who could not speak or touch parents dying of a totally different disease. And do I need to mention Sweden? The Whitty measures have not worked. Whitty was in part responsible for the care home scandal. No kids under 12 without any other health condition have died from covid and folks are dying from the complications that can result from getting a jab. These are all facts.
Yet Linkedin has deleted my post saying:

Big Media backs a united political class in suppressing dissent. It is clearly removing content and comment which is fact claiming it is misinformation. Big Brother would be proud of it.
