Comrade Susan Mitchie, who is a long-standing member of the communist party and a psychologist, has apparently been made chairman of the World Health Organisation’s Technical Advisory Group for Behavioural Insights and Science for Health. Phew. Think of the ink that’ll be wasted printing out the letter head for that one.
Comrade Mitchie, who has no more medical qualifications than your nearest squirrel (at least, not the sort of qualifications that entitle you to remove an appendix, prescribe a morphine injection and ask a complete stranger to pop behind the screen and slip their things off), is on record as arguing that testing, border controls, social distancing and face masks should be kept going forever.
I confess I don’t see why being a psychologist, however eminent, qualifies her to offer an opinion on face masks, which have been shown to do more harm than good and to cause a horrifying range of disorders, though admittedly face masks are regarded as useful as instruments of power, control and fear and were, I believe, popular with the CIA.
Comrade Mitchie called for stricter lockdowns and as far as I know has not yet apologised, despite the fact that it is now clear, as it was always going to be, that the lockdowns were responsible for more deaths than the rebranded flu (aka covid-19) which they were supposed to control. (Her CV, by the way, is entertaining reading. It goes on forever.)
What the devil was the purpose of permanent social distancing, permanent masking and tougher lockdowns?
Would Comrade Mitchie like to debate these things with me, live on the BBC? I’m sure the BBC would welcome us both into one of their studios. Meanwhile, while we wait for hell to freeze over, would anyone like to explain why she’s been given a posh sounding job with the WHO?
