It is highly unlikely that We The People will ever really know what went on the the cabinet room at No. 10 Downing Street in the run up to the nation being put in lockdown as pandemic panic gripped the nation in the spring of 2020. One of the problems with our system of government, "the cabinet system" is that members of the Cabinet, the Prime Minister's inner circle of senior ministers are, as a condition of holding heir position, required to support decisions made 'in cabinet' by that inner circle regardless of their personal feelings on the issue. And it seems most people in Boris Johnson's cabinet during the run up to the disastrous and entirely ineffective lockdowns were kept in the dark about many things, including the fact that 'The Science' on which lockdown policy was based was not science at all, there was absolutely no empirical evidence that lockdowns, mask mandates or social distancing laws wouls do anything to slow or halt the spread of the SARS-COV2 virus. Government was effectively reduced to a “quad” of ministers and their dodgy 'scientific advisers' deciding on Britain’s future. Rishi Sunak, an unfancied contender in the current race to succeed the discredited Johnson and at that time Chancellor of the Exchequer was one of them. There were rumours at the time that
Sunak was horrified at much of what was going on, and repeatedly warned that lockdowns would inflict economic damage that was likely to endure for decades. Unfortunately due to the principle of collective cabinet responsibility, resign and speak out or stay in post and fight the pseudoscientific insanity from a position of power.
His speaking out now he is no longer chancellor and his bid to replace Boris Johnson as Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister of the nation has fallen victim to a backlash from the party rank and file because he is perceived as the man who stappped Boris in the back, confirms much of what many have suspected. The culture of fear created by pandemic scaremongering, and the Orwellian macinations of Boris and his unelected globalist cronies in collusion with mainstream media, that was usded so effectively to terrify the nation, was not 'led by science' as the official narrative claimed, but instead was pat of a hiddden agenda.
Questioning lockdown, even behind locked doors in cabinat meetings, was seen as an attack on the Prime Minister’s authority. To ask even basic questions – about how many extra cancer deaths there might be, for example – was to risk being portrayed as one the crackpots, the “Cov-idiots”, people who wanted to “let the virus rip”. Fascism had taken hold in the heart of Whitehall.

To maintain the illusion that our individual freedoms and civil rights were being stolen from us in order that we could be protected from a 'deadly' disease that did not kills many people meant elevating
the corrupt SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies,) committee to the status of a mini-government: don’t
blame us, ministers wanted to say, we’re just following the best
scientific advice. For that reason, there never was an economic or a
social analysis of the damage the government's pandemic policies were doing to economically and to communities, a see-no-evil policy applied. Which worked,
until the aftershock of lockdown began – with the evil there for all to see.
Lockdown, Sunak says, was always a political decision but No 10 wanted to dress it up as “following the science”. There may be some truth in this but also there is a lot of evidence that the decision was made not by politicians but by outside influences such as the WEF, the World Health Organisation (WHO), billionaire psychopath Bill Gates who funded the mathematical modelling project that predicted 500,000 excess deaths in UK during the first wave of COVID and the pharmaceutical corporations that own so many scientists and universities, vast swathes of the media and that manufactured the vaccines that were so bad the manufacturers warned they would not make people immune to the disease. This was a conspiracy at the highest level. And remember this nightmare was being enacted not just in the U.K. it’s tentacles reached into just about every Western government from Canada to NZ the US to France, Italy, Germany, Australia etc.. All these leaders reciting the same mantras over and over. Remember Build, Back, Better?
Funny how all these governments are now desperately rushing through their own versions of censorship bills to prevent free and open discussion of the COVID scandals. They claim they want to fight mis and disinformation. No they want to save their own arses, the status quo and do everything in their power to stop the truth from getting out.
This matters because it’s not about the Tory leadership. Sunak now stands almost no chance:
the race is nearly over with most votes cast. Polls show Liz Truss
ahead on a two-to-one ratio. Nor is it about score-settling: Sunak spoke
to the media on the understanding that he was not naming “the guilty men”.
He wanted speak on record about the process (or lack thereof) because he
thinks that candour will help correct mistakes for next time. People who think a General Election in which the Conservatives would almost certainly be defeated is going to solve anything need to remind themselves that throughout the pandemic crisis The Labour Party only offered by way of opposition to the government's fascistic measures only demands for more oppressive measures, stricter policing of COVID restrictions and stiffer punishments for those who did not obey.
It is to be hoped Sunak will be the first of many to speak out, because, whether you share his political affiliation or not, he has revealed that our system of government is Not Fit For Purpose. As one Cabinet minister commented on the atmosphere in government yesterday: “It wasn’t just Rishi. I needed my own network of spies to find out what was happening in lockdown, because we were never told.”
If this is what was going on, if there was no proper Cabinet scrutiny, if it’s true that no overall cost-benefit analysis of lockdown was ever seriously attempted, it points to a collapse in basic standards of government. At a time when high standards and rigorous analysis was most needed.
As least now there can be denying that having voted ourselves out of the authoritarian bureaucratic dictatorship of the EU, we have been delivered by Boris Johnson and a bunch of unelected bureaucrats into the hands of an even worse tyranny, the wannabe world government of the United Nations and its agencies.
The epitaph of The Johnson regime can therefore be found towards the end of G K Chesterton's poem The Secret People:
"They have given us into the hand of new unhappy lords,
Lords without anger or honour, who dare not carry their swords.
They fight by shuffling papers; they have bright dead alien eyes;
They look at our labour and laughter as a tired man looks at flies.
And the load of their loveless pity is worse than the ancient wrongs,
Their doors are shut in the evening; and they know no songs."
But we ordinary punters can take heart from the poem's opening lines:
"Smile at us, pay us, pass us; but do not quite forget;
For we are the people of England, that never have spoken yet."
All we have to do is sack the establishment parties Labour, Conservative and Lib Dem, they've all sold us out at some point, whenever you have the chance vote for anybody but their representatives, and destroy the elected dictatorship.
