But that is on the mild side compared to the latest ramblings from Mike Yeadon, who had been lionised as an “expert” by broadcasters like Murdoch noise floor occupant TalkRADIO, only to be awarded the coveted Pants On Fire award from PolitiFact for his claim “The coronavirus pandemic is ‘effectively over’ in the United Kingdom and ‘there is absolutely no need for vaccines’”. Zelo Street then nailed him as a sick Muslim hater.
But still Yeadon returns, like a Covid denialist bad penny, with an interview-cum-rant that puts his previous utterances in the shade, and the people at Reuters telling “Some of Michael Yeadon’s ex-colleagues at Pfizer say they no longer recognize the man they once knew - after he transformed from a mainstream scientist to a COVID-19 vaccine skeptic”.
One former colleague, who “overlapped with … Yeadon at Pfizer for about two years and sometimes had coffee with him”, concluded “This does not sound like the guy I knew 20 years ago”. A group of his former Pfizer colleagues told him in a private letter “We are very worried that you are putting people’s health at risk”. So what’s he been saying?
“I think the whole point of the pandemic, and the lies, and the vaccines, was to get you to electronic digital ID. Once that system’s up and running, and we’ve already been told about ‘variants’, which are a lie, you might have to have booster shots, they said. I know you don’t need booster shots. I’m terrified of booster shots”. And why is he terrified?
“Because they’re not vaccines. What if … what’s in those vaccines, the third one and the fourth one and the fifth one, is a gene sequence designed to kill you? I don’t know, it’s not my crime. But if I wanted to set up a system where I could have complete control and with plausible deniability, administered over months to years, to billions of people something that would injure them, and kill them, I couldn’t think of a better plot than this one”.
He wasn’t finished. “There’s actually not much to be frightened of virus-wise. The thing to be terrified of is your Government. Don’t be frightened of the virus, it’s pretty much gone now, but be terrified of your Government. You must take back your freedoms with no more ado … they’re not going to give it back to you, because they’ve not taken it from you legitimately. There was never any need to lock you down, it doesn’t work”. Do go on.
“They made you wear masks that are frightening. They’ve told you wrong things about the severity of the virus, deprived you of effective medical treatment and then exposed you to dangerous vaccines”. Woah! That is off the scale conspiracy wacko. And remember, he was endorsed by the loathsome Toby Young, James “saviour of Western civilisation” Delingpole, and self-promoting TalkRADIO host Julia Hartley Dooda.
Now Mike Yeadon has finally vanished down the rabbit hole, will any of those less than totally august individuals concede they messed up? As if. No change there, then.
