Ferguson & Pagel Repent Scaremongering, Starmer & Communist Michie Silent

Expert activists and hyper-political scientists from Independent SAGE told us time and time again that the NHS would be over-run and cases would hit 100,000 per day if the UK opened up on July 19, Ferguson went as far as saying we could be at 200,000 cases by now. Professor “Pantsdown” himself, Neil Ferguson has now corrected himself and admitted he was wrong to be so certain, “hard-line-centristChristine Pagel has also admitted she was wrong – she had claimed she was backed by science and Boris was being ideological. No such mea culpa has been heard from politicians like Keir Starmer, or the political professors like the communist on the SAGE committee, Susan Michie. Broadcast media amplified their hysterical predictions which have now been shown to be false, will they take future predictions with a pinch of salt?

Independent SAGE’s ‘100,000 Cases Per Day by July’ Forecast Wrong (Again)

Doomsday activist experts who claimed the UK would see 100,000 Covid cases every day “by July” have already been proven wrong. Independent Sage members – who have spent the last 17 months campaigning against the government and against any post-Covid return to normality – will once again be disappointed to see their hyperbolic predictions contradicted by reality, as the UK seems to be turning a corner from a post-freedom day peak of 54,000. Their forecast made headlines…

In early June, UCL’s Anthony Costello claimed:

“In a month [July 19] you’ll be up to 100,000 new cases a day. If the Government takes a gamble and lets rip like Tory backbenchers want, the NHS will be overloaded. Let’s wait. Let’s stay as we are.”

The latest data now suggests case rates are falling, with as few as 29,173 testing positive for Covid yesterday.  Unless gambling at the bookies Guido doesn’t like to make predictions, Independent SAGE’s doomladen forecast has proven wrong again…

Richard Madeley Questions Comrade Michie’s Love of State Health Intervention

Guido commends Richard Madeley for being the first TV host in the country to invite “Independent” SAGE’s Susan Michie on to their show and finally confront her about her hard-left politics. Madeley rightly points out that activist expert Michie’s love of national Covid restrictions may not be born from her concern for the nation’s health, rather the default policy position of a hard-core, state-loving communist. It looked like Susan didn’t appreciate this line of questioning…

Political Activist Group Behind ‘Independent SAGE’

Guido revealed the political activist stuffed membership of the group that calls itself ‘Independent SAGE’ back in May. Now the group is crowdfunding for more activism research to be carried out, yet Guido spotted something fishy in buried in the description of their official crowdfunder. The fund is being run not by Independent SAGE, but by a political organisation called All the Citizens…

‘We, the Citizens’, also known as ‘All the Citizens’ is an activist group that campaign against the government. Their website is filled with anti-Tory social media videos, including a protest outside Downing Street, and a conspiracy video about Cambridge Analytica.

The people behind All The Citizens, listed on their website, include failed Brexit whistle blower Shahmir Sanni, his lawyer Tamsin Allen, and conspiracist Carole Cadwalladr. The full list is replete with anti-Brexit activists, anti-capitalist filmmakers, and political campaigners. Not exactly a group you’d associate with independent scientific advice…

BBC Mislead 70,000 Readers With Fake SAGE Claim

Last week Guido reported on Angela Rayner’s SAGE confusion, when she claimed advice from the left-wing, activist-packed Independent SAGE had come from the official group. While Labour’s deputy leader making the error is bad enough, today the BBC made the same mistake; with verified political journalist, Simon Gilbert, describing the Labour activist group‘s opposition to schools re-opening as “Quite the intervention from the scientific advisory group which has guided government on how to tackle Covid-19.”

The fake news was then shared by the official BBC Coventry & Warwickshire account to their 70,000 followers, along with Phil Upton – a local BBC radio host.

The BBC’s complaints team aren’t going to be happy…

Rayner’s SAGE Confusion

Guido readers will be unsurprised to learn that the not-so ‘Independent SAGE‘ group, packed to the rafters with communists and Labour activists, has sided with the unions in opposing schools returning at the start of the month. Angela Rayner leapt on the opposition in a now-deleted Tweet:

Embarrassingly, Rayner either failed to understand the difference between the official SAGE and its left-wing activist counterpart, or wanted her followers to believe they were one and the same; as she attributed the pro-union stance to the official organisation. A left-wing SAGE impersonation group, parroting union advice, being tweeted out by Labour: Rayner has achieved what physicists thought impossible and create a perpetual circular motion machine…
