Benjamin Butterworth describes himself as a “prominent gay journalist,” whatever that means. No-one had heard of him until he began popping up on Good Morning Britain and national radio a few years ago, to argue that women have penises too. Yes, he is a dick.
Butterworth is an attention whore. He’s not a journalist. He’s in the business of supply and demand. The media is pushing hard for the unjabbed to be punished and eventually forced to take the poison. Butterworth supplies them with the headlines they want.
Does he really believe that the unjabbed represent a threat to him? If he does, he’s a clown. If he doesn’t, then he’s in it for the media appearances and the Twitter followers. I’d say it’s the latter. As I said, he’s a useless attention whore.
Speaking to Talk Radio’s James Max this morning, Butterworth called for those of us sensible enough to decline the jabs, to be forced into lockdown.
Some weeks back, I did say on The Richie Allen Show, that the media would devote more and more time to discussions around what should happen to the unjabbed. It’s relentless now.
Incidentally, everything Butterworth said to James Max this morning is erroneous. Hospitals are not being overwhelmed by unvaccinated people. Guy Kelly, writing in today’s Telegraph says:
Just a fortnight ago, Boris Johnson stood at a Downing Street press conference and said he thought we “need to have a national conversation” about people who are unvaccinated. The very idea jolted a nation’s newspaper columnists into life, but in reality, the conversation had already been going on for months.
This, we’ve been told in roundabout ways since the majority of the population received their second jab over the summer, is fast becoming a pandemic for the unvaccinated. Two days before that press conference, Lorraine Kelly and ITV’s GP-on-call, Dr Hilary Jones, told their viewers that “90 per cent of people in hospital are unvaccinated right now with Covid”. The next day, Spandau Ballet’s Martin Kemp repeated that statistic.
It wasn’t strictly true – analysis by Full Fact found the true figure at the time was “more like 36 per cent” – and data surrounding the vaccination status of those currently occupying NHS beds is frequently misinterpreted. But ask most people what they’ve heard, and they’ll likely tell you it’s anti-vaxxers clogging the system.
Two weeks ago, two-thirds of hospital beds were occupied by the vaccinated. There’s no reason to assume that figure has changed much.
Here’s what I know for a fact. The jabs are dangerous. They are killing people. They neither prevent the recipient contracting covid or passing it on. The unvaccinated are not a danger to anyone.
Journalist Benjamin Butterworth describes the unvaccinated as "irresponsible and selfish".
He calls for "a lockdown for the unvaccinated as they're the people who will burden the NHS."
