One of the themes that has emerged from this “winter of our discontent” has been the fact that social media and big tech companies are heavily involved with governments and corporate interests in censoring content on the internet. It has been impossible for an intelligent person to be unaware of the suppression of dissenting opinions and the reporting of inconvenient facts which focuses on several themes: the covid – 19 pandemic, climate change, racial tensions and anything supportive of President Trump in the US election.
One of the latest and most blatant examples of this is the removal by YouTube of a video by Dr Mike Yeadon, a prominent researcher in immunology, who has been researching the efectiveness of measures imposed by governments to curb the spread of the SARS – COV2 coronavirus which causes COVID – 19. Dr Yeadon concluded some months ago that lockdowns are useless against the spread of the virus and has not been shy about saying so.
In his latest video, now removed by YouTube for “violating terms of service” Dr Yeadon argued that the UK governments second national lockdown which began on November 2 and is due to run until December 3, and the regional lockdowns which preceded that have been ordered on the basis of “lethally incompetent” scientific advice. Although it is hard to see exactly which part of YouTube’s terms of service the video violates (there is noting in the text which forbids challenging official narratives,) the video platform has mysteriously removed the video in which the immunologist explains the findings that inform his conclusion.
It is not the first time YouTube, its sister company Google and other social media platforms have censored content questioning government responses to COVID, vaccine propaganda, partisan bias in political reporting and exposing far left violence in protests about race relations, climate change and political protests.
London’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), which advises the government on scientific matters has got many things about the Covid-19 pandemic wrong, Yeadon states bluntly. He is an expert in allergy, immunology, and respiratory diseases, with over three decades of experience, including working as Pfizer’s vice president and chief scientific officer and therefore he should know. Apparently his credentials rapidly became invalid , when the software ‘censor’ YouTube uses to intercept and ‘disappear’ content noticed criticizing the official line on the necessity of lockdowns.
In fact SAGE based the case for the second lockdown on the same mathematical modelling software as led to the prediction back in March this year of 500,000 dead if the nation was not locked down. When subjected to expert scrutiny the software was discovered to be the work of an incompetent amateur and based on the assumption that the entire population was susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 when it first emerged in China last year.
Now it compounds that error by adding the assumption that only a fraction of the public has been infected so far, based on the detectable presence of antibodies in their blood. These premises, which research based on real life studies rather than mathematical models, have shown to be risibly wrong are behind the harsh restrictions currently in place in the UK, which are designed to prevent another massive and deadly outbreak of Covid-19 like the one that didn’t happen earlier this year.
In fact the majority of the people are not susceptible to the virus due, it is believed, to cross-immunity from other kinds of coronaviruses. These range from the relatively exotic but closely related SARS-CoV-1, which caused the 2002–2004 SARS outbreak, to human coronaviruses causing the common cold.
The large number of positive Covid-19 tests is not indicative of the number of active cases. Dr Yeadon agrees with many other experts that the PCR test being used to diagnose COvID ‘cases’ only detects RNA remnants of various strains of coronavirus, but it cannot tell if they came from live viruses or those long conquered by the immune system. There are also false positives because of the close similarities in RNA found in various coronavirus strains. Mass testing causes an increase in those, he says, pointing out that if a false positive is recorded as a ‘case’ then obviously the more tests are carried out the more false positives, and by extension the more cases there will be.
Western tech giants have been relentlessly pressured by politicians, academics, billionaire philantropists and both print and broadcast news media to act against “misinformation” on their platforms. But there is no agreed definition of what constitutes misinformation, and the one being applied seems to take the view that anything challenging the Coronaviris Pandemic narrative and associated “Great Reset” being orchestrated by the World Economic Forum is misinformation, while complaints about censorship of perfectly rational and valid opposition is dismissed as the ravings of “conspiracy theorists.”
US John Hopkins University Prof Says Don’t Believe Corona Virus Numbers
The number of confirmed cases outside of China roughly tripled once again this week, and if this outbreak continues to escalate at this pace there will be more than a million confirmed cases in less than a month. But as bad as the official numbers are, the truth is that there are a whole lot more people walking around out there that have caught the virus but have not been tested.
EU States Rebel Against Brussels As Van Leyen Demands Borders Stay Open
The cracks in European solidarity are growing deeper by the day as the coronavirus crisis threatens to split the bloc.

Labour planned to privatise 40% of NHS as hypocrite Corbyn takes aim at Johnson
One quickly tires of Labour Party candidates and their supporters claiming the “The Wicked Conservatiovs plan to sell the NHS to private enterprise. They’ve been at it again throughout the current election cycle, and of course there is no more truth in the claims than there ever was before. But the lefties forget, as they glefully point at any conservatives whose heads appears over the parapet, yelling “Witches, burn them,” that the Labour government, between 1997 and 2010 under the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair privatised much of the NHS.
Students Feel Pressured To Reflect Uinversities Anti-Brexit Bias In Essays
University students have claimed they are being pressured by political activist lecturers into writing essays which pander to the “anti-Brexit bias”in the higher education system, and fear they will be marked down if their work does not comply with the left wing agenda.

Students censored – An Academic Community In A Crisis Of Collectivism.
Intellectual freedom in our universities is under threat from … intellectuals. So overbearing have the left wing screechers of bourgeois politically correct leftism now become that even the universities have surrendered to the intellectual control freakery of cultural Marxism. But if universities are now dedicated to turning out dull minded conformists, what hope is there for western society?
Poor white pupils put off school by multicultural timetable
Education, should it be about learning to read, write, spell and calculate? Or should it be about feminism, gay rights, black history and ‘gender awareness’ whatever that is? For many years we have had multiculturalism and politically correct thinking rammed doiwn pupils throats but noe a study by a local education department suggests this obsession with politicallly corret diversity is responsible for the failure of white working class pupils.

Where Is Bicycle Repair Man When The World Needs Him
A superhero whose superpower is repairing bikes? It was a sketch in a Monty Python’s Flying Circus show. But forty years on is it as crazy as it sounded then? We seem to have plenty of people with degrees in things that are not every practical and shortages of people who can do useful stuff. And when we have health and safety officers stopping people from climbing ladders unless they have been properly trained, people are discouraged from learning those everyday skills by themselves.
Modern Maths Teaching Is Making Children Mentally Ill
It is a well established fact that people who are good at mathematics are insane so why are we making such a big deal of abstract maths in proressive education when what most people will need to earn a living is a good command of basic arithmetic – which modern education is failing to give them.
The Science Fraud: Many Scientific Research Papers Are Pure Gobbledegook
The war between humanities and science goes on, both in academic faculties and internet comment threads. But in an environment that is increasingly politicised and influenced by corporate profit motives rather than the pure and unsullied pursuit of knowledge, can we trust either side? This article suggests not.
