Susan Michie, a 40-year member of the British Communist Party and a leading participant in the U.K. Government’s Scientific Pandemic Insights group on Behaviour (SPI-B), has been promoted to Chair of the WHO’s Technical Advisory Group for Behavioural Insights and Science for Health.
Last year, when asked how long Britain’s Covid containment measures should last, Michie responded that they should last forever: “Test, trace and isolate system, border controls are really essential… social distancing… wearing face masks… we’ll need to keep these going in the long term… I think forever.”
On Good Morning Britain, when asked whether her membership in the Communist Party might inform her draconian policy preferences, Michie expressed outrage: “I’ve come on your program as a scientist… You don’t ask other scientists about politics, so I’m very happy to speak about science, which is what my job is, and to limit it to that.” Michie is a behavioural psychologist with no background in epidemiology or infectious disease.
