So who’s Mike #Yeadon and why should you care? He’s a top rank #virologist, he’s also a previous vice-president of #Pfizer, holds a first class honours degree and relevant doctorate. Pfizer is one of the companies producing a #Covd19 vaccine. What he’s not is some lone wolf, conspiracy theory fruitloop living in his parent’s attic.
Dr Yeadon like a great many scientists is critical of the SAGE advice to the UK government and also believes that the the UK government is significantly mishandling its response to the Covid19 virus
There’s nothing unusual about this. For instance we can turn to the #Great_Barrington_Declaration signed by thousands of real scientists, many of whom are world leaders in their fields and who have been saying fundamentally the same thing from the international perspective for some time now. Many of you dear readers though won’t have heard of these people, this is because there is a process by which some social media companies are actively removing content.
Here’s what a rather alarmed but well known journalist had to say on #Twitter.
We say that it’s not the role of Social Media companies to edit what we as adults (and rather good looking rodents) can and cannot read. It’s bad enough when the subject of the censorship is the aforementioned roof dwelling conspiracy fruitloop but when social media companies decide what is and what is not good science the outcome for us all takes a turn for the worse.

Today in the UK we are living under unprecedented restrictions. As a society we’re currently accepting these restrictions because we’re told by our government that the restrictions will prevent more deaths than they will cause. They base this advice on the advice of SAGE and SAGE alone. A group of advisors that we now know went to #wikipedia for information – yes, really! We know that the current government imposed restrictions on the people of the UK are causing deaths, causing poverty and are causing long term social and economic harm. Some political groups and organisations such as the UK #Labour Party and the #SNP are calling for even tighter restrictions despite the harm these will cause.
If these restrictions are genuinely saving more lives than they’re costing then so be it. The UK’s survived much worse. But what if these restrictions are doing the opposite and killing more than they’re saving? This is the question we and government need to answer and before doing so we need the very best advice, from the very best people whether than advice plays to our preconceptions or challenges them.
This means that we have to listen to real scientists on both sides of the debate, if we don’t then it’s axiomatic any policy decisions made are going to be flawed. For this reason we have to say no to #YouTube and the other Social Media companies censoring what we say and read and view. Social media companies are our clients, that make money out of their users and as such they they are our servants, not our masters.
