Stunning Hypocrisy of the Cult-Owned Guardian Which Finally Publishes an Anti-Lockdown Op-Ed – Two and a Half Years Late

More than two and a half years since Boris Johnson confined the nation to its homes, the Guardian has finally decided it’s time to run some criticism of it. In what I’m sure you’ll agree is a timely piece entitled “Boris Johnson’s Covid laws took away our rights with flick of a pen. Don’t let that happen again” (as though Boris did it without any encouragement from, I don’t know, the Labour Party and the Guardian, whose only objections were that he hadn’t gone harder and faster) barrister Adam Wagner (who has written a book on the subject, Emergency State: How We Lost Our Liberties in the Pandemic and Why it Matters) sets out the case against the Government’s illiberal response to the pandemic.

It’s just over two and a half years since Boris Johnson gave us a “very simple instruction”, that we “must stay at home”, followed – three days later – by a law that for the first time in our history would impose a 24-hour curfew on almost the entire population. The years, months, weeks and days since have been so relentless – and at times almost beyond belief – that it is difficult to begin to process them. Many of us have experienced personal bereavement, and everyone has been touched in some way.

But as tempting as it is to move on, to focus on other important issues vexing our society, there are some aspects of the past three years we must face up to.

There are a hundred lenses through which to view this important period in modern history, but as a barrister I have looked at the more than 100 laws that placed England in lockdown, imposed hotel quarantine, international travel restrictions, self-isolation, face coverings and business closures.

These were probably the strangest and most extraordinary laws in England’s history, imposing previously unimaginable restrictions on our social lives, bringing into the realm of the criminal law areas of life – where we could worship, when we could leave home, even who we could hug – that had previously been purely a matter of personal choice.
