Stones in rivers?
Is he telling us to block waterways?
Why are we blocking waterways?
Do dams stop the spread of the virus?
Is he secretly a beaver?
Why is he working so hard to make us forget he said this?
Nigel shouldn’t feel too bad, Dr Lance O’Sullivan, Professor Siouxsie Wiles and many, many, many of the NZ Twitter woke were all downplaying the danger in the early days of this pandemic, but watching the incredible back peddle by so many as the enormity of this challenge erupts is pretty funny.
TDB was making the the call at the start that this had all the ingredients of a full blown pandemic and could be a black swan event. We argued that China’s severe actions spoke far larger volumes than what they were officially saying and started calling for serious preparation well before the opinion tide change on Twitter.
Our call is that the worst is yet to come and that we will have no sense of normalcy until a vaccine is found and that is still 12-18months away.
You can either read it here first on TDB or wait until woke Twitter and the journalists it enthrals thinks the opinion is popular.
Increasingly having independent opinion in a mainstream media environment which mostly echo one another has become more important than ever, so if you value having an independent voice going into this pandemic and 2020 election – please donate here.
