Coercion: “the practice of forcing another party to act in an involuntary manner by use of threats or force.” We now know that over the course of the Covid-19 ‘crisis’, scientific advice to the UK Government has been co-ordinated by the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE). SAGE is co-chaired by Sir Patrick Vallance (the Government Chief Science Advisor) and Professor Chris Whitty (the Chief Medical Officer). We have already seen how SAGE has used external advisors to help direct the medical and social response. But the UK government also claims that “many issues around the coronavirus response relate to behaviour”. Here we present internal government documents which confirm the the government set out to enhance fear and manipulate public opinion in order to accept extended ‘lockdown’ measures. Their document states: “The perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent…” This type of directives from SAGE are designed to push the populace in a direction which they naturally do not want to go. It seems that the government’s main objective here is not to eradicate COVID-19 which SAGE knew was already into the population by March 2020, but rather to extended the lockdown a few more months. But why? There are a number of reasons for this, but certainly one reason has been to implement sweeping changes in the structure and functioning of the state and the economy – radical reforms under the cover of the COVID crisis, but changes which the electorate were never informed of despite the fact they may be unconstitutional. This segment is from the UK Column News presented by Brian Gerrish and Mike Robinson which aired live on May 11, 2020.
