Scientists: stick it on the Tories before they stick it on you

Tory propaganda: every time a Tory minister stands in front of cameras for a press conference, they spout at least 30 minutes of nonsense at us. Now it seems they are going to “stick” the blame for their mistakes “on the scientists”. I say the scientists should get their retaliation in first.

We should thank Tory Care Minister Helen Whately for admitting that the government is planning to “stick” responsibility for the Covid-19 massacre in the UK “on the scientists”.

It’s a strange thing to say, as Tories like Ms Whately – who, as Care Minister, must be personally responsible for the deaths of more than 20,000 people in care homes across the country, after her government ordered that people with the virus should be shipped from hospitals to those homes, rather than to the “Nightingale” hospitals where they might at least have been properly isolated, had those hospitals not been useless figurehead public relations stunts.

The government also allowed care workers to move freely between homes, ensuring that if they picked up the disease in one home, they would easily be able to transfer it to another.

Those are fatal decisions for which the Care Minister must take responsibility. Will she?

This clip suggests she won’t:

If I were a scientist listening to that, I would quietly start compiling a list – and I would suggest that all my colleagues did the same.

They’re between a rock and a hard place because they can’t just quit; if they did, they would be blamed for walking out when the country needed them the most.

So: a list.

This list would itemise all the times when, despite claiming to be “following the science”, the Tories went their own way instead.

I would include the consequences of such decisions, with figures on the number of deaths caused by them, if possible.

And I would release that list to the press pre-emptively – before the Tories had a chance to get their lie out.

    Female and male scientists can only advise the fascist tory government because it is the government alone which decides what if any action they will take concerning the coronavirus pandemic!

    This means the fascist tories are 110% responsible for instigating state sanctioned murder of ovr 62,000 women and men – not the female and male scientists!

    If the female and male scientists ruled little england they would have instigated immediate quarantine measures in February 2020 and denied entry to the UK of all those visitors to the UK. But the fascist tory government are the only ones with the power to instigate all these actions and they refused because murdering ‘worthless women and men’ ensured only the ‘exploitable survive!’
