  • (air whooshing)

  • (pencil scratching)

  • - So an article in the "British Medical Journal"

  • has just come out, describing the 100 billion dollar

  • "moonshot plan" here in the U.K.

  • to test all citizens is a unevaluated,

  • under designed, costly mess.

  • It is 77% of the entire NHS annual budget,

  • 100 billion pounds and they're calling it a mess

  • and this is why.

  • First of all, it is volunteer only.

  • So you get to come in and take two tests,

  • one is the PCR test, and one is called an Innova test.

  • The PCR test we spoken many, many times on London Real

  • about, it was actually never designed

  • to test for COVID.

  • But the Innova test is even more concerning,

  • because the "British Medical Journal" is saying

  • that it misses between one out of two cases

  • and one out of four cases, it completely misses it.

  • Also, it has a false positive of 0.6%

  • which means with the frequency happening right now

  • in Liverpool, for every person that's tested correctly

  • positive, another one is tested incorrectly positive

  • and forced to self isolate, imagine that.

  • Half of the people are actually being told to isolate

  • in an incorrect manner.

  • It goes on to say that by testing the entire population,

  • it doesn't make scientific sense

  • because by testing asymptomatic people

  • that are mostly uninfectious,

  • it's just a waste of resources.

  • And also half of those people,

  • if they would find symptoms anyways

  • and they would come in or they would self isolate

  • on their own.

  • So, 100 billion pounds, completely unthought out,

  • completely impractical, and they said

  • the money would be better spent trying to enforce

  • better self isolations and thinking about

  • this problem much, much differently,

  • but that's not what we're being told by our politicians.

  • We're being told the moonshot is the way to solve it,

  • we're gonna test everyone, and then we're all gonna be fine,

  • but that's not what the science said

  • and I heard Dr. Martin Kulldorff, on the show

  • from Harvard Medical School who said,

  • testing anyone under 18 is ridiculous.

  • He also said positive test don't mean anything.

  • What matters is hospitalizations,

  • death rates, and the excess death rate,

  • that's what really matters.

  • So I don't know who thought of this moonshot programme

  • but it wasn't consulted by with scientists,

  • and 100 billion pounds, 77% of the NHS budget

  • for something that's being called and unevaluated,

  • under designed costly mess,

  • again, shows a complete lack of leadership

  • from our politicians,

  • a disproportionate response to this virus,

  • and a complete lack of science-based decision making,

  • we are not using our brains here,

  • we are not trusting the scientists,

  • our politicians are listening to the ones

  • that fit their agendas, which is how

  • they wanna move forward and usually lock this country down,

  • which is not doing any of us any good,

  • I believe we need to get London back to work,

  • we need to get the U.K. back to work,

  • we need to get that engine of commerce going

  • that gets everything back to normal,

  • it gets our kids in school,

  • it promises them a future,

  • it helps with our mental health,

  • it helps with our physical health,

  • that helps free up our NHS system,

  • that's what we need to do not these ridiculous mass programmes

  • where we're testing, testing, testing, testing.

  • Just 'cause you're positive

  • it doesn't necessarily mean anything.

  • If you're not over a certain age,

  • if you don't have other ailments,

  • your chance of dying is very, very low

  • but no one wants to talk about this

  • and again, Martin Kulldorff said,

  • it's 1000 fold difference in vulnerability

  • from a young child to someone in their in their 80s.

  • And I believe the average age of the death

  • of COVID right now, is 82 average age.

  • So we really need to get our head around the numbers.

  • We need to get our head around the science

  • before we literally crush ourselves

  • from the inside by stopping this economy,

  • so leave your comments below,

  • tell me do you think we should all be mass tested?

  • Do you think we should have a moonshot programme?

  • Do you wanna be tested?

  • Do you think it will solve our problems?

  • Please leave me your comments below,

  • forward this video on, again, we're trying

  • to offer solutions here and try to find a new way forward,

  • I wanna lead London in a new direction

  • and I wanna make the city world class once again.
