‘Locking down will only cause catastrophic rates of poverty’

November 3, 2020

ALL LIVES MATTER: “If you are a human being and you are socially isolated or are going to kill yourself do you think I should break restrictions to go and see somebody who can save you. I think your life carries more weight than the law in that moment. Life is very, very priceless and that includes lives that aren’t Covid-orientated.” – Resident psychologist on ITV’s This Morning Emma Kenny.

 

 

 

ONE of the country’s top psychologists claims the new month-long lockdown will escalate the current mental health crisis and creating irreversible poverty.


Emma Kenny is the resident psychologist on ITV’s This Morning and also runs a mental health hour on radio station LBC with presenter Iain Dale. She also writes for The Closer Magazine.

Ms Kenny was discussing the new changes to Conoravirus legislation with RT UK and said it was absolutely essential that the proposed rules were questioned, debated and changed to allow people to regain their freedoms.

She claims children’s charities have informed here that children are being treated for high levels of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), anxiety and Covid PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder).

‘This lockdown will exacerbate poverty’

She said: “Never in the history of any kind of pandemic has a government chosen to quarantine healthy people, destroy an economy and ruin children’s futures.

“Now the Government can be blamed for needless, senseless deaths of children. Now they can be blamed for mothers dying of brain cancer because they didn’t get treated and they can be blamed for collapsing the economy that is causing catastrophic rates of poverty.

“The poor – already die young (10 years younger) – is the average kind of Covid death in fact, because that is what poverty does.

‘Our country is a democracy, not a dictatorship’

“But we’ll answer it by lockdown, restrictions and killing the economy? I don’t think so.

“In 10 years time there will be our answer to this because the truth is coming and they better be ready for this, because we are going to hold them to account. Don’t quarantine healthy people, give people back autonomy that we’ve always had. This is a democracy, not a dictatorship.

‘There is no funding for this mental health crisis’

“Give people the opportunity to choose to shield – my mother’s 78, my mother doesn’t want to shield.

“She wants to live her life fully, trust people with their own autonomy and choices and stop skewing data to terrify children to say in the future our economy is going to get crippled and we don’t have the answer to the mental health crisis as the funding no longer exists.”

She also suggested that people reduce or stop reading or listening to Mainstream media newspapers or broadcasting channels for their own peace of mind.

‘We should lobby Government to end all restrictions’

“I blame the Government for their horrible, reprehensible fear narrative and I wish the media had been more discerning about effecting children’s lives so terribly.

“It is time for a conversation where we all come together and that 30 million people have data on their smart phones and they are not having this conversation.

“Two million households have no internet so the poor and marginalized they haven’t got a voice. We should lobbying all government to end restrictions.”

Ms Kenny also challenged those trained in safeguarding to take their training very seriously as all aspects of the human life were “priceless”, even to the point of breaking lockdown restrictions to prevent someone from committing suicide.

‘Safeguarding is about protecting all areas of life’

She said: “Safeguarding law is always something that I have practiced. In safeguarding law it is our duty whether we are a teacher, a psychiatrist or a psychologist to protect at all odds the area of life.

“If you are a human being are socially isolated or are going to kill yourself do you think I should break restrictions to go and see somebody who can save you. I think your life carries more weight than the law in that moment.

“To be honest if any practitioner would be to challenge me on that, then I say you would need to go and retrain in your safeguarding, because life is very, very priceless and that includes lives that aren’t Covid-orientated. If you need to survive, you do whatever you need to survive.”
