Grumpy Owl Posted September 21, 2020 Share Posted September 21, 2020 For context to my previous post (for those unfamiliar with the legendary 'Airplane!' movies) this is exactly what happens whenever someone 'does a press conference': Despite his title of 'prime minister', Boris Johnson is NOT in charge and is NOT in control of anything. Matt Hancock, the current Health Secretary, was a failed contender in the last Conservative Party leadership contest. He certainly thinks he has 'power' lately, with his own numerous press briefing appearances. Jeremy Hunt was the previous Health Secretary for some time. Ever wondered despite years in the role, why he was suddenly 'reshuffled' last year? The 'technocracy' is staring us all in the face now, and is blindingly obvious. The Government do not run this country. They are being told ("advised") what to do by people such as Chris Whitty and Patrick Vallance. Who are these people? Chief Medical Officer? Chief Scientific Advisor? Whatever their fancy titles, they are 'unelected bureaucracts'. We cannot vote them in or out of their positions, they are 'appointed'. But these are the people telling our Government what do do. Sorry, I meant "advising" them what to do. They are being trusted implicitly. No-one dares to challenge or question them. Their 'advice' is taken as 'gospel'. "We are EXPERTS therefore everything we say is TRUE". 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
