I was right to warn about the Lockdowns!

Dr Vernon Coleman

It is now generally agreed that the lockdowns which caused so many deaths and so much misery were entirely unnecessary. The following paragraphs are taken from `Coming Apocalypse’ by Vernon Coleman which was published in April 2020 – over two years ago.

`I was the first to suggest that the so-called ‘cure’ (the lockdown policies and the refusal to treat other patients to ‘protect’ them from infection) would kill far more people than the disease. The lockdown policies seem to have been recommended by a panicky World Health Organisation, though Imperial College’s prediction of eight million Britons in hospital and half a million deaths certainly helped to spice up the panic in the UK.

`The politicians, the scientists, the advisors and the media who all promoted this ill-described ‘crisis’ as though it were a second coming of the plague, will doubtless all insist that the damage done by the lockdown was necessary. (I prefer the more accurate term ‘house arrest’ to the rather Orwellian ‘lockdown’). They will insist that there will be few long-term consequences from their combined stupidity and betrayal. Indeed, I am pretty confident that they will claim (against all the evidence) that it was only their lockdown policy which saved us from far more deaths. Knighthoods and peerages will no doubt be distributed to those who promoted the idea of a ‘crisis’ requiring unprecedented treatment. However, I believe that their policies have caused far more deaths than they have prevented. If accurate figures are ever obtained, they will prove me right. (The plight of poorer countries is being ignored. Around the world one billion people rely on the $715 billion sent back home by workers in rich countries. Huge numbers of those people will starve without that money.)

`Moreover, the evidence shows that those countries which did not put their citizens under house arrest, have suffered far fewer deaths than those countries which did.

`The long-term effect of the most egregiously stupid public policies in history, and the failure of public health management, will be to take many nations back into the Dark Ages. The appallingly designed solution will ensure that countries which have ventured into the absurd lunacy of lockdowns will cause chaos and destroy capitalism in just the way the climate change campaigners were demanding.’

The above paragraphs were published in April 2020 and I was widely criticised for what I wrote.

However, it is now clear that everything I wrote then – at the beginning of the covid tragedy - was absolutely accurate.

Why, oh why, did it take so long for apparently sane people to see the damage that was being down by the absurd and useless lockdowns?

Why has no one been punished for the egregious decisions which were made? Have any lessons been learnt? Does anyone want to learn any lessons from this lethal fiasco?

And when are the critics who attacked me so viciously going to apologise?

`Coming Apocalypse’ is available as a paperback and an eBook.
