Now whilst I think they have made a complete hash of the Covid response and it's been proven they have been accrediting everything from heart attacks to falling off a ladder as a Covid death I think this is a sinister move. Don't get me wrong there is no love lost for me for PHE however anyone that knows how PHE works know they are imbedded in local authoritys across the country. Matt Hancock has now decided that he is going to link the test and trace system outscourced to SERCO (Who have been fined for a data protection breech and the same company who won a contract to house refugees and illegal immigrants to the tune of 2 billion pounds over 10 years . ) This new service will be called the National Institute for health protection headed up by Baroness Dido Harding. Now this news has only just come out in the press but it feels very much like a power grab The one line from Hancock about this that made me shudder "This will give ministers direct control over it's future response to Pandemic threats. " This role will report directly to Matt Hancock and Sir Patrick Vallance who was heavily funded by Bill Gates around Dementia treatments and was until very recently president of pharmaceutical company GSK in research and development . This will be modelled on the Robert Kosch Institute in Germany. Doing some research on this group shows that one of the current project groups is to look at how information is disseminated to various groups including politicians , health professionals and members of the public. The way they do this is via behavioural science . The study of how behaviour can be controlled and manipulated to get the desired effect/ response. This is an explanation of a project group on their website. The Corona Virus Pandemic has shown how difficult it is to communicate the facts , risks and uncertancies around health topics effectively and with transparence. (Nothing too ominous there right ?) Then it goes on to say how enormously important this is and to communicate more effectively they will be using methods from empirical cognitive and behavioural sciences, such as the development and testing of various communication formats and media . Because this institute dates back to 1891 I was interested in it's history so I googled what part did the Institute play in the 2nd world war. Lots of things came up about the develolment of vaccines but one interesting entry for 1933 - After the National Socialist Takeover , jewish scientists are forced to leave the institute . During the Third Reich RKI is heavily involved in National Socialist strong arm tactics. Leading scientists play a role amongst others in human experimentation in Sanatoria and concentration camps . In 1942 the institute becomes an independant reich institute called the Robert Kich Institute. It now focuses on research into infectious disease that threaten military striking power. So our government is now modelling our public health services with a biomedical institute that tortured people in the second world war and is looking at how to control peoples behaviour today . All of this information can be fact checked. 4 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
