Speaking to Channel 5 News last night, government adviser Susan Michie suggested that face masks and social distancing should continue forever.
Michie was responding to recent comments by UN Covid-19 envoy David Nabarro. He told SKY News earlier this week, that people will have to adapt their lifestyles to fight Covid-19 and future pandemics. Michie, a long-time member of the Communist Party said:
“That is the behaviour of social distancing, of when you’re indoors, making sure there’s good ventilation or if it’s not, wearing face masks, of hands and surface hygiene. We will need to keep this going in the long term and that will be good not only for Covid, but also to reduce others diseases.”
When the presenter inquired as to how long we should live with these measures Michie replied: “I think forever, to some extent.”
She went on to say:
When people see that there is a threat and there is something they can do to reduce that… [to] themselves, their loved ones and their communities, what we see now over this last year is people do that.”
Yet again, there was no pushback from the hapless presenter. She found it amusing.
Listeners to The Richie Allen Show tell me that they are looking forward to the launch of GB News. Andrew Neil’s channel will begin broadcasting programmes on Sunday evening.
They’ll be disappointed. GB News will be no more than Talk Radio on television. It will feature most of Talk Radio’s guests. It will be endless culture wars. It’ll be wall to wall historic statues and union jacks, woke wars and gender identity blah blah blah.
It will not discuss vaccine safety or efficacy. No chance. You need only browse the Twitter accounts of the GB News line-up. They’re fully onboard with the vaccine agenda.
David Nabarro, a special envoy from the WHO, said that vaccines won't be enough to end the pandemic, and that we'll need to adapt our lifestyles too.
