UK Health Secretary in 2020: “When Do We Deploy the New Variant”
Home of News, Politics & Opinion
I didn’t post this earlier because I thought it was a fraud, but The Daily Star UK is also posting it. The Star reports Matt Hancock, the former UK health secretary, hatched a plan called Project Fear to “frighten the pants off” the public. He wanted to “deploy” a new COVID variant. He wasn’t going to create it, just say it.
According to the Telegraph, the purpose was to get people to stick to lockdown restrictions.
The messages came before the third national lockdown in January 2021.
Hancock said: “We frighten the pants off everyone with the new strain,” to which the Department of Health’s media advisor Damon Poole responded: “Yep, that’s what will get proper behaviour [sic] change.”
What gives these people the right?
