The article below by The Telegraph’s Andrew Lilico, is typical of a flood of similar arguments now being advanced world-wide.
Offsetting them are similar albeit diminishing number of articles by die-hard virologists, epidemic specialists and such-like, sticking to their doomsday approaches.
But one thing is increasingly clear, as I predicted on this Blog seven months ago, specifically when it’s all done and dusted, Sweden will be proven to have had it right. There’s now a general acceptance of that.
Call me cynical but I can’t help wondering how things might have been different if all of the “experts”, none of whom pre-virus anyone had heard of, had been banned from television and their written advocacies in our print media been unaccredited, that is nameless and simply attributed to “a university epidemiologist” and such-like.
Pulled from obscurity to public figure status it’s only human that they don’t want it to stop, even if sub-consciously.
That said, I don’t criticise the initial lockdown safetyfirst approach as at the time we were dealing with an unknown contingency.
But, now we know the story and full-scale lockdowns should not be happening.
