Yes,Strange isn’t it Amelia that all these banned vids seem to feature people who actually know what they are talking about and are therefore even more worrying.Furthermore these same people treat the rest of us as humankind rather than paper fillers.The upshot of it all is that Faucci and co.has to go .Trump is the only person who can get the UK out of this crisis if his actions were decisive but,for some reason he appears to be faltering.The fact remains that CHQ could still be used,first in tablet form for the young,then the middle aged ,giving the NHS space to nurse the elderly.Nobody seems to want to do diddly-squat ,it seems time to call in Shiva Ayydurai.

Neil Ferguson seems like an absolute charlatan. He may go down in history as the man who singlehandedly destroyed the British economy – a feat that not even Thatcher or the trade unions was able to manage. Chapeau, Mr. Ferguson.

It’s not just Ferguson who should be blamed. It’s the government for going along with him.

As an “adventurous reader/viewer” on the Covid-19 and Lockdown, I had a habit of saving You Tube videos. Recently I went back through the listing and noted that several videos were greyed out due to censorship. I am not sure (because the titles were lost) but I believe one of the censored videos was an Unherd Lockdown tv episode! Unbelievable.

No surprise at all. I wonder if it was that interview that Freddie had with Neil Ferguson? He should’ve given him another interview after his monumental lapse in civilised behaviour (his not following his own advice, NOT that he wanted a bit of ‘how’s your father?’). The good thing about the Unherd interviews (apart from the photogenic appeal of the editor in chief!) is that they include the accompanying articles; all good rigorous stuff!
