Chief Science Officer Vallance admits Tories botched C19 response, infections start to rise as they botch lifting lockdown too

The government’s Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Patrick Vallance, has admitted to a committee of MPs that the Tories botched their response to the coronavirus crisis.

Vallance confessed that the UK’s outcome had ‘not been good’ – by ‘good’, he once said he meant 20,000 UK deaths – and that mistakes had been made.

Well, ya think, Patrick?

The Tories intentionalherd immunity’ plan, which would have resulted in the deaths of half a million or more of our people and which Vallance touted in media interviews, was just the start of the horror.

Delayed lockdown is estimated to have cost at least 25,000 needless deaths, PPE failures have helped kill hundreds of NHS and care workers and Johnson’s haste to lift the lockdown has caused local hotspots and is driving the UK’s overall infections back up:

Johnson has promised a public inquiry. He should be on trial, along with his cronies.

  1. The tame scientists leave a worse taste than the Tory politicians, who we know are despicable and expect to hear wall to wall lies from. Vallance sold his soul very early on, and mostly has danced a pretty jig to his paymaster’s tune.

  2. More scientifically illiterate bollocks for nappy wetters and wearers.

    Here is the news :

    There is no epidemic, and you’d have to kiss 4000 people in order to even meet this invisible virus.

    Well past time to start worrying about the damage being done by Scary Fairy stories and a proto-fascist government.

    1. Over 40% of Americans agree with you assertion and that includes the illustrious President-good company.
      If you conclusions are correct publish all of your evidence and put yourself forward for an Nobel Prize for Science.

      The Economy was due to contract in the New Year, as a consequence decisions made in 2019-this has hastened the process and has been a diversion/distraction of the wholesale debacle of an incompetent government.

  3. Ahhh but it won’t be Boris fault or anyone in the Govt , it will be , as always , EVERYONE ELSE .
    SO that’s him fucked then as a science officer .

    What was it that twat Johnson said , everyone must now wear masks cos the science has changed ,,, THE SCIENCE HAS CHANGED , WTAF !!!
    The science has always been the same , masks save lives end of , see every other EU country etc who used , and is still using them and compare the excess deaths .. fckin hell the bloody ball dropping audacity of the twat Johnson .
    Maybe just maybe the entire scientific community will boycott any involvement with this murderous Tory Govt

  4. ABdF Johnson auditions for catchphrase and also passes test to enter the Galton Institute, just Sir Winston C.
    Surely the UK must have someone like Dr Anthony Fauci who is willing to stand up for the many against the few .
    Bolsanaro Tango anyone?

  5. Local outbreaks are likely to occur in more highly-populated, poorer areas which will tend to be Labour-run Councils – will the Tories be able to resist blaming Labour, like they blamed them for the 2008 financial crash?
    Local lockdowns being largely in those places where lower-paid workers live, many are likely to be victimised by resentful employers
    We may be about to see a big increase in the ghettoisation of the poor.

  6. What is shocking is how easy it is to buy/turn a scientist
    What is depressing is that you cannot follow the science because they never agree

    1. We can see how science an be been purchased to push an agenda eg Professor Ferguson and his crackpot predictions which were taken as gospel by the W.H.O which then pronounced a “ pandemic “.

  7. The UK’s Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, has announced an “urgent review” of procedure for recording Covid19 deaths.

    It turns out the British government may have been over-reporting deaths from Covid19.

    Who knew, right?

    This follows the “news” that Public Health England (PHE) have been recording Covid19 as the cause of death for anyone who has ever tested positive for the virus.

    This potentially includes people who were asymptomatic, people who had the disease and then recovered and people who never had the disease at all but received a false positive from the incredibly unreliable PCR tests.

    In short, as one government insider is quoted in the Evening Standard:

    It turns out you could have been tested positive in February, recovered, then hit by a bus in July and you’d be recorded as a covid death.”

    Essentially, when the changed rules for registering deaths were passed with the Coronavirus Bill back in March, the over-reporting of Covid deaths became almost inevitable. Indeed, the situation could almost have been designed for that purpose.

    Since then anecdotal evidence has also been piling up.

    It’s not unique to England either, countries all around the world are doing the same.

    Globally, as we have reported, the Covid19 statistics are wide open to mistaken or dishonest reporting, and potentially total nonsense.

    So, the question really isn’t whether or not the Covid death statistics are massively inaccurate – we know they almost certainly are. The question is why the government and mainstream media have suddenly decided to admit it.

    Or half admit it, anyway.

    There’s still no discussion of the “clinical diagnosis” of “likely” covid19, or of the “unlawful” DNRs being forced on elderly or vulnerable people – all of whom would potentially be included in the inaccurate Covid stats. Or of the potential financial incentives for hospitals based on diagnosis and treatment of the disease.

    Now that the government are admitting, and the media are reporting, that the Covid death statistics are inaccurate, will they start to investigate why conditions for this were seemingly deliberately created?

    I wouldn’t hold your breath.

    In a way, this perfectly fits with the peculiar trend of this pandemic, where on the one hand government officials have been perfectly open and honest about the danger – underlining, again and again, that the vast majority of people are in no danger – whilst on the other hand stoking hysteria and public panic that is totally at odds with the admitted reality.

    Is this the beginning of a roll-back or climb down? Or just another phase in the global gaslighting that the coronavirus “pandemic” has become?

    1. Pointless posting such things on any NLM media site… all NLM busy saying this means Covid deaths under reported massively. Everyone dies of Covid, cancer, heart attacks, strokes etc. have all been cured in the Covid era.

  8. It seems that Tories are about to change the criteria for measuring Covid 19 deaths in GB to ‘massage’ the figures so Johnson doesn’t look so callous or incompetent. Lies; Damned Lies & Statistics will not change the fact that the old & vulnerable were thrown out of NHS hospital beds & into ‘Care Homes’ untested by both Johnson & Sturgeon………body bag fillers. Will they be held accountable?

  9. Boris is still at it. “Normality by Christmas cheers the Great Leader”, then promptly U-turns, and admits he’s wrong! He’d somehow stumbled on the scientific advice of four months ago that the 2nd (or 3rd) wave will carry us through to March 2021.
