Health Secretary Matt Hancock has begged people to refrain from participating in demonstrations supporting the “Black Lives Matter” movement protesting the death of George Floyd.

But many thousands of people have ignored the advice.


Posted by Press TV UK on Saturday, 6 June 2020

Hancock had put them in a tricky dilemma. On one hand, taking part in the demonstrations put them in close contact with thousands of other people, meaning they were likely to meet at least one – probably many – transmitter of Covid-19. On the other, staying away would indicate tacit support for violent anti-black and minority ethnic racism.

The UK’s Tory government has indicated that it supports the violent anti-black and minority ethnic racism that we have seen displayed by the US police – albeit in its deeds rather than words; consider the omission of recommendations to reduce deaths of black people due to Covid-19 in the Tory government report on the subject, and Boris Johnson’s reluctance to halt the export of arms and riot equipment used to beat innocent people, and now peaceful demonstrators.

So there is a strong moral argument for standing up against the Tory government’s behaviour, as well as that of the US police.

But, while we have been told it will be compulsory to wear face masks soon, we don’t have to do it yet. And many people don’t even have one.

Who is more likely to go on a demonstration of this kind? I would suggest it would attract people who don’t vote Conservative.

So it seems the Tories have found a great way to get their political opponents to infect themselves with Covid-19 and possibly even eliminate themselves from the electorate (fatalities in the UK running so high).

And even if you don’t buy that particular theory, it still suggests that Johnson has found a way to inflict his “herd immunity” lunacy on the population – and by their own free will.

It’s despicably manipulative. But is it also too intelligent from bumbling Boris and his guru Demonic?
