It’s hard to believe, but British Covid commissars are even more petty and tyrannical than American ones. From Monica Showalter at americanthinker.com:
Most Americans have had a bellyful of the likes of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the National Institutes of Health bureaucrat who upended society in the name of flawed or absent research in the name of conquering COVID.
It turns out he’s not sui generis, or even a bug in bad system — he’s just a feature.
And now we know where he gets it from.
According to an eye-opening article in National Review by Johns Hopkins professor of applied economics Steve Hanke and the U.K. University of Durham’s Professor Kevin Dowd, the Imperial College of London is kind of a Fauci cubed, based on its constant fear-mongering and bad research models. The college, unably headed by Dr. Neil Ferguson, wields power in inverse proportion to its competencies. And that power includes even the U.S. They begin:
The defining event in the history of Western Covid lockdowns occurred on March 16, 2020, with the publication of the now infamous Imperial College London Covid report, which predicted that in the “absence of any control measures or spontaneous changes in individual behaviour,” there would be 510,000 Covid deaths in Great Britain and 2.2 million in the United States. This prediction sent shock waves around the world. The next day, the U.K. media announced that the country was going into lockdown.
