‘Knowingly creating suffering strikes at heart of our own morality’

March 8, 2021

PROBING QUESTIONS: “Before we unleashed this deliberate terror on our air waves, did anyone ask is what we are doing ethical? Is it ethical to create a level of fear to push people to the very edge of what they can bear, or over that edge.” Tory MP Sir Charles Walker asking searching questions of SAGE, Matt Hancock and Chris Whitty over their conduct on the Government and press campaigns enforcing lockdowns.

PRESSTITUTES: “That is when we in this place – the journalists up there with all their privileges – instead of smearing and dismissing them, instead of calling them ‘Covidiots’ should show some compassion and understanding. We should wear our advantages and our privileges with great humility.” – Tory MP Sir Charles Walker who addressed the assembled journalists looking down from the balcony in the House of Commons on their treatment of the sections of the public struggling with the Coronavirus regulations.

 

 

 

 

A TORY MP has attacked the media and the Government for their portrayal of those who are struggling to cope with the current lockdown restrictions and triviliazing the suffering that is being caused to the public.

Sir Charles Walker, MP for Broxbourne, called into question Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health, the press in the gallery and the Scientific Advisory Group of Emergencies to looking at the societal damage with their relentless psychological traumas inflicted through their ruthless efficiency. He spoke of his concerns to Parliament on 6 January 2021.

‘Press sneer at those struggling with the regulations’

He said to the Deputy Speaker: “It is so easy for me to comply with the law. It’s so easy for most people in this house to comply with the law.
We’re comfortably off, we have nice homes, we have gardens and outdoor spaces and access to family.

“The same applies to those journalists who fill our TV screens every night with their wisdom and wit about how people should comply with these regulations and how they sneer at those that can’t.

‘Piers went to Antigua during lockdown’

The mantra of lecturing the peasants while saying it doesn’t apply to me was evidently highlighted by some in the behaviour of Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan who tried to justify his holiday in Antigua in February whilst everyone else was in lockdown.

Although he is called by out fellow hack Dan Walker here, it could be argued there was hypocrisy as he was pushing the same headlines for everyone to obey.

‘Establishment should wear their privileges with humility’

He continued: “That is when we in this place – the journalists up there with all their privileges – instead of smearing and dismissing them, instead of calling them ‘Covidiots’ should show some compassion and understanding.

“We should wear our advantages and our privileges with great humility. I don’t want to hear from another constituent who is having a good lockdown.

“I’m really pleased that you are but my voice is for those who aren’t, for those of my friends, neighbours and constituents who are struggling day in and day out, whose mental health is deteriorating and who are wondering how the next few months in the middle of winter how they are going to cope with.

‘Show some compassion for those less fortunate’

“Can I ask colleagues and people out there who are so fortunate to show some compassion and understanding for those who are not so fortunate?”

In a separate Parliamentary speech on 23 February the 53-year-old MP singled out Matt Hancock, Chris Whitty and the rest of the SAGE team to face the consequences of their actions and the wilful cruelty that had been inflicted on communities, families and friends.

‘Did they really think inflicting this constant fear was ethical?’

“Many will say that the victory justifies the cost in jobs lost, the businesses ruined, the education gone and the cost to the nation’s long-term mental health and well being.

“Before we unleashed this deliberate terror on our air waves, did anyone ask is what we are doing ethical? Did the Secretary of State (Matt Hancock) or the Chief Medical Officer (Chris Whitty) as is this ethical? Did a voice at SAGE ask is this ethical? Is it ethical to create a level of fear to push people to the very edge of what they can bear, or over that edge?

‘Look directly at those who have been damaged by your decisions’

Did they ask if it was ethical for us to embark on a strategy that has left many our fellow citizens debilitated with fear, anxiety or worse for years to come or perhaps a lifetime. Knowingly creating that suffering strikes at the heart of the State’s own morality and our morality.

“So I ask the Secretary of State, the Chief Medical Officer and the members of SAGE to look directly at the damage and the anguish, not over them, not through them, directly at them, because it is time these people were seen, it is time their health mattered and it is time they counted.”
