  • - More COVID cases, more COVID cases, more COVID cases.

  • That's the narrative we hear in our mainstream media

  • and the message from our governments every day

  • in cities all around the world, especially London.

  • And they use these cases

  • to slowly take away our civil liberties.

  • They use these cases to decimate our businesses,

  • shut down our cities, put in curfews

  • and ruin our economy.

  • Now, my question is, where's the danger?

  • Because I can't find it.

  • And I ran the numbers.

  • Public Health England gave the numbers out last week.

  • Thank you.

  • 5,000 was the total number

  • of cases in one day,

  • an all time record for England.

  • But when you dig deep into the numbers,

  • what do you find?

  • Only 266 people are hospitalised

  • for what are called COVID symptoms,

  • which could mean a myriad of things.

  • Only 13 people died

  • on that same day from COVID 19.

  • Now all that means is that you tested positive

  • for COVID in the last 28 days.

  • You could have died from anything,

  • including being hit by a truck.

  • So those numbers are probably inflated.

  • 13 deaths.

  • Is this danger?

  • Now any death is a travesty, but is this danger?

  • I don't think so, because on that same day,

  • 213 people died from smoking-related illnesses.

  • That's 10 times, over 10 times that,

  • and yet I don't see them locking us down

  • from our tobacco supplies.

  • If they really, really were concerned about human life,

  • then they would do that.

  • But they're not.

  • And this is the problem with this narrative.

  • We suffer from a massive lack of leadership,

  • from a complete disproportionate response to this virus,

  • and a total lack of science-based decision-making.

  • I feel bad for our government

  • because they're stuck in the same narrative

  • that they created months ago

  • that was always based on flawed data.

  • And if they change it now, they look stupid,

  • they don't get re-elected.

  • And meanwhile, you and I suffer every single day

  • and I'm watching the backbone of this great city of London,

  • that I love so much, go down the tubes

  • and I'm sick and tired of it.

  • I got entrepreneurs that email every day

  • that say, Brian, please keep speaking about this.

  • My business is dying.

  • The 10 pm curfew is not based in science.

  • Professor Graham Medley on the SAGE committee

  • that advises the prime minister

  • said the 10 pm curfew was never discussed,

  • never discussed with the scientists.

  • Tory backbenchers are shouting out, where is the science?

  • They don't even buy it.

  • And we've got, like I said, a complete lack of leadership

  • and a mayor and a prime minister

  • that are basically covering up

  • from previous failed ideas and failed policies.

  • And you and I are paying

  • and we're paying all around the world

  • because this is the same thing

  • in mainstream media and governments.

  • I did a vlog about this yesterday.

  • And as far as I know,

  • I'm one of the few people actually talking about this

  • that has a decent presence on some of these social channels.

  • No one else is talking about it, why?

  • These numbers are right in front of our faces.

  • And yet we're being told to do 180-degree policies

  • based on the opposite of what they say.

  • It's time we say stop or this is gonna continue.

  • The madness is gonna continue.

  • And we're gonna be living in a dual reality.

  • What the numbers tell us,

  • and what we know common sense tells us,

  • and this other reality,

  • where the government tells us something opposite.

  • They scare us.

  • They use fear.

  • They use peer-to-peer pressure to shame us

  • into doing what they say,

  • because some people believe they're right.

  • I don't see the numbers.

  • If you show me the data, fine, I'll start behaving that way.

  • I don't want more deaths.

  • But there is no data because there's a lack of science.

  • And like I said, a completely disproportionate response.

  • So leave your comments below.

  • Tell me if I'm getting something wrong.

  • And again, let's get this message out to our governments.

  • That look, we forgive you.

  • If you can just come clean today and say, guess what?

  • We messed up.

  • Let's start a new narrative today based on the numbers.

  • I'm good with that.

  • Let's do that.

  • Let's get London back to work.

  • Let's get our kids back in school.

  • Let's get our transport network back.

  • Let's get our theatres back.

  • Let's get our culture back.

  • Let's get workers back in our offices,

  • which are still at 13% capacity, which is a joke.

  • This city is dying.

  • The small and medium-sized businesses are dying.

  • Entrepreneurs are dying.

  • Culture is dying

  • and I'm not gonna sit by and watch it happen.

  • I'm just not.

  • I'm not gonna sit idly by

  • and let this thing go down the tubes

  • because of a few people have got this wrong.

  • So let's speak up.

  • Leave your comments below.

  • Thank you so much for the support.

  • I gotta talk about this stuff.

  • I got no other choice.

- More COVID cases, more COVID cases, more COVID cases.
