The Great Reveal

If you thought Monday 19th July 2021 was “Freedom Day”, you were mistaken. But you were only off by a week. The real “Freedom Day” was Monday 26th July 2021 because this was the “great reveal” day – the day when the majority of us discovered the whole truth about why we are where we are. […]

Stop This

We all know the form by now. The government leaks a new draconian policy position – the next iteration in the progression to towards total control – and there is outrage, especially across Twitter. None of this outrage is reported in the mainstream media. The BBC treats the idea of vaccine passports for young people […]

Dealing with the Fear Machine

I had the pleasure to meet Gary Sidley, the former NHS Clinical Psychologist, at the Question Everything conference in London on Saturday. Gary gave both common sense – and psychology underpinned – guidance for returning to normal on Freedom Day (today). Invest the 8 minutes or so to watch the video in full.

BBC: déjà vu?

In the words of His Royal Highness Prince William, speaking to camera in May 2020, “BBC employees lied and… made lurid and false claims… which played on… fears and fuelled paranoia (and) displayed woeful incompetence when investigating complaints and concerns.” Prince William went on to state, “They were evasive in their reporting to the media […]

Imagine you’ve led a dignified life, a long and dignified life, in which you’ve been a really valued member of […]

Face Liberation

As a writer, watching what has unfolded in the world over the past 15 months and trying to comment in real time and diarise for posterity, has been exhausting. At every turn, aghast at what has been done to people, I’ve wanted to scream from the rooftops. But it takes time to formulate one’s thoughts. […]

Masked Virtue

There’s an argument that has been doing the rounds today on Twitter.  It’s this: that the wearing of face-masks, after the mandate is lifted on July 19, is something that should be done ‘for others’ – as an act of selflessness.  It’s an argument that’s been made by politicians like Layla Moran, as well as […]

Be More Bev

A couple of days ago a friend sent me a clip from the Jeremy Vine show; I believe it was filmed a few weeks ago. Jeremy is someone I once enjoyed listening to, and even spoke to as a phone-in guest on his BBC 2 radio show a couple of times. He has always been […]

Ivermectin: Censorship and Covid

This article is about suppression of free speech and censorship. Prior to 2020 academics – especially clinicians – would openly debate and discuss the merits of different pharmaceutical and medical interventions to treat illness. With Covid, that ended. Suddenly. The suppression of free speech has accompanied unparalleled state intervention, fear-driven propaganda and social coercion. And […]
