Sunak v the scientists over Covid-19 restrictions – and the wrong man is going to win

Rishi Sunak: he’s the UK’s favourite politician but look at that face. It seems he also has reason to be worried. Perhaps he has an agenda he hasn’t told us?

Rishi Sunak – the government minister who may be the only one with more Covid-19 related blood on his hands than Boris Johnson – is agitating to cause more deaths again.

Sunak, whose ‘Eat Out to Die Out’ wheeze contributed to reversing all the benefits of the first UK lockdown by encouraging people to congregate indoors in the middle of a pandemic, says he thinks scientists like Chris Whitty have changed their focus from protecting the NHS to keeping infections low and staying ‘Covid-free’.

What the blazes is wrong with him?

The trouble is that Sunak is said to be the most popular politician in the country, because his furlough scheme protected jobs. It wasn’t generous at all, but the fact that it made him popular simply demonstrates how badly demeaned the UK’s workforce has become after 40 years and more of Tory-style neoliberal economic policies.

Here’s Owen Jones to explain in detail what’s wrong with Rishi Sunak:

Many people have pinpointed ‘Eat Out to Kill Off’ as a reason to distrust Sunak’s instincts. Here’s a very good point:

But many people have highlighted his many other blunders:

And there’s a warning that his idea will bring on a deadly third wave of the virus:

But of course we should not forget that Sunak’s Tory government is doing what it can to harm us all, even after vaccines were developed against the virus.

The delays that the Tories are imposing on second doses of the vaccine are too long. People should be having the booster after three weeks, not three months.

It seems clear the government knows this, too – as super-rich people like Stanley Johnson have had both doses of the vaccine in the recommended period, suggesting that the Tories have imposed a two-tier vaccination system that leaves most of us behind.

It also gives the virus a chance to adapt, according to some:

Sadly, we live in a country run by liars. The Tories say they are guided by the science but we have seen them ignore good advice time after time because they were desperate to keep the economy ticking over. All the did was make matters worse.

Sunak will influence his Cabinet colleagues and make matters even worse. He is part of a government that cannot do anything right.

So perhaps we should be glad that it seems reactions to Sunak are changing. Let’s hope this will become the last word:

    I believe the reason Sunak is concerned is that he may be under the strict conditions of a Globalist IMF Covid loan which requires the Country loaning to quarantine and impose lockdowns. These draconian conditions came to light as a result of a Country refusing to accept such conditions and not only declined their loan but made public the Globalist shutdowns requirements as being against any economic sense. This may explain some of the Governments weird shutdown decision that went against so called Sage medical advice. I have very grave concerns that the conspiracy theory surrounding the Covid situation are slowly becoming a reality. Indeed Starmer and his number 2 are even starting to use the Globalist terminology and buzz phrases.

    Anybody with any sense would ignore him. The trouble is that there are too many people like him. I didn’t eat out, because I didn’t want to catch the virus. There was a woman, in Question Time’s Q.T.50 who confessed to eating our on 22 occasions! People just don’t get it. I’ve said, before that, we all should know, by now, what we should and shouldn’t do, in order to protect ourselves and by extension, those about whom we care. This thins is now too close to home for me to demontrate any patience for stupidity and selfishness.
