Shocking News About COVID-19 from the UK (needs to be verified)
Shocking news has been brought to my attention. I have confirmed that this is being reported by both legacy and non-legacy media outlets around the world. But, it is difficult to know these days where exactly the truth lies, so I am wading into this with caution. However, if this holds any shred of truth, it could be a smoking gun.
WhatsApp text messages were apparently obtained from Matt Hancock, who is the former Secretary of State for Health and Social Care of the United Kingdom. The many claims from his purported text messages include plans to sow fear among the public with respect to COVID-19, especially by timing the release of information about a new variant, and blatant disregard of expert advice about testing people going into long-term care homes. The discussion about when to release information about a novel variant (the Kent variant; discovered in the UK) occurred just prior to it being publicly announced (so, this would seem to provide some verification of the accuracy of the texts).
Tomorrow’s newspaper in the UK (because we are one day behind in Canada) indicates that Matt Hancock was ready to bully another Member of Parliament to support lockdowns. If the MP did not, Hancock apparently was willing to threaten to pull funding for a centre for children with special needs; a project the MP had tabled. As someone who has and works with children with special needs, I find this use of vulnerable youth as pawns in a political chess game to be particularly egregious.
News about Hancock’s messages has been coming out slowly over the past several days. I am not sure if the full spectrum of issues have been released yet.
Here are some sources of information, but I encourage everyone to conduct their own searches…
A spokesperson for Hancock has claimed that at least some of the publicly released text messages have been ‘doctored’.
You can decide for yourself.

Time will tell just how deep the rot was within the governments across the globe that ‘managed’ the declared COVID-19 pandemic.
Some updates from the comments section…
