Making people miserable through sadistic lockdown and social isolation policies, and then telling them that their suffering is China’s fault, is an excellent recipe to get the population on board with a war with China.
More than half of Britons believe China is to blame for the coronavirus pandemic, a poll revealed today.
Research for MailOnline showed 56 per cent hold Beijing responsible for the spread of the infection around the world.
There is also overwhelming support for a worldwide ban on ‘wet’ animal markets – where scientists believe the disease might have originated in Wuhan, according to the survey by Redfield & Wilton.
The findings emerged after Dominic Raab took aim at China, saying it faces ‘hard questions’ about the crisis.
The poll found 56 per cent of Britons believe China is to blame for the spread of the virus, compared to 26 per cent who said the opposite.
Some 18 per cent said they were not sure.
Three quarters want ‘wet’ markets banned, and 54 per cent said it would be appropriate for coronavirus to be known as the ‘Wuhan Virus’ – despite the World Health Organisation saying geographical tags are discriminatory.
Foreign Secretary Mr Raab told a Downing Street briefing last night there will have to be a ‘deep dive’ into the facts around the outbreak.
‘I think there absolutely needs to be a very, very deep dive after the event review of the lessons – including of the outbreak of the virus – and I don’t think we can flinch from that at all, it needs to be driven by the science,’ he said.
How about Mr. Raab looks at actual data such as that produced by Iceland?
After testing 10% of their population at random, Iceland found that half of infections have no symptoms.
Calculating the death rate from the random population sample shows something that may be even less scary than other flu viruses.
The average age of people dying “from coronavirus” is 80.
This is not a scary pandemic.
It is mass hysteria.
He said the UK had good co-operation with China in relation to the return of UK nationals and in procurement of equipment.
‘So we ought to look at all sides of this and do it in a balanced way, but there is no doubt we can’t have business as usual after this crisis, and we will have to ask the hard questions about how it came about and how it couldn’t have been stopped earlier.’
Right, and then they’ll ask the Chinese for reparations, and when they get laughed off they’ll talk about war.
War with the evil Chinese demons.
Whatever Mr. Raab’s “driven by the science” research about who’s to blame here yields won’t be anything other than pure, malicious speculation.
