The UK scientist whose doomsday predictions triggered a massive lockdown on both sides of the Atlantic has resigned his government advisory position, amid claims he broke the strict lockdown rules he pushed to meet his married lover.

Professor Neil Ferguson, an epidemiologist of Imperial College, London resigned from his role as a senior scientific advisor to the British government Tuesday evening. . . .

. . . He became known as professor lockdown after his alarming data modelling predicted huge casualties for the populations of the United Kingdom and the United States unless they enacted severe curbs on individual freedoms to lock the nations down. While the moves were criticised by senior legal figures as approaching a police state, Professor Ferguson’s advice was nevertheless heeded by the government in March. . . .

. . . While Professor Ferguson frequently appeared in the media to defend his work and to tell the public not to break the lockdown rules, he was himself spectacularly breaking them in secret, according to a report in Britain’s Daily Telegraph , which claims the hard-line scientist was meeting his married lover. . . . .

Rules for thee but not for me.

“Do as I say, not as I do.”
Kind of like the gun debate: With many of these politicians and celebrities who tell YOU not to have the right to protect your family with a gun, they have an entourage of gun-toting bodyguards around them.

This may be much murkier than a flimsy titillating story. This woman is a supporter of an American pressure group called Avaaz as her picture shows:

The Wikipedia entry states " Avaaz , a U.S.-based nonprofit organization launched in January 2007, promotes global activism on issues such as climate change, human rights, animal rights, corruption, poverty, and conflict. The UK-based newspaper The Guardian considers it “the globe’s largest
and most powerful online activist network”
and one might wonder if she had any influence over Professor Lockdown`s suggestions in formulating policy at home and in the US.

He’s British? Sounds more like a Michigan Republican!

Not only is there two sets of rules for him,
but it looks like there are two sets of rules
for the police enforcing this too.

London’s Metropolitan Police Service has confirmed it will take no further action over disgraced former government scientific adviser Neil Ferguson breaking the country’s lockdown laws by allowing his married mistress to visit his home, merely saying that his actions were “disappointing”.

The Imperial College epidemiologist’s modelling became the basis for the Johnson administration’s reaction to the Chinese coronavirus and resulted in the current lockdown measures. Professor Ferguson resigned on Tuesday night from his government role after it was revealed that he had allowed left-wing activist Antonia Staats to meet him at least twice at his London home, while she was isolating with her husband and children at a different residence.

Police have been criticised for their heavy-handed approach for enforcing the lockdown, with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announcing this week that it would review every charge, conviction, and sentence brought about under the emergency legislation. While police made a late-night to Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage to tell him that he breached lockdown by travelling to Dover to report on the influx of illegal aliens, police have declined to investigate further into Mr Ferguson’s brazen flouting of the law to carry out his clandestine relationship.

Scotland Yard claimed that Mr Ferguson had “taken responsibility” for his “error of judgement”. . . .

Others outside of “Professor Lockdown” have been penalized. Yet they seem to be giving him a pass.

Police Hunt Man Dressing as ‘Plague Doctor’ as Lockdown Fines Soar

UK police are on the hunt for a man who goes walking dressed as a 17th-century plague doctor, as official statistics reveal those fined for breaking lockdown measures to be more than 9,000, nearly triple the government’s earlier estimate.

While police admit that the person has committed no crimes, Norfolk Police has said that they want to “provide words of advice” to the walker, according to The Telegraph . . . .

. . . During the 17th-century, it was believed that the plague was passed through inhaling contaminated air and that the mask’s beak — stuffed with herbs, flowers, and perfumes — could purify the air and protect the wearer.

Norfolk Police’s threat to ‘have a word’ with a person going for a walk in a historic costume comes as official reports reveal more than 9,000 people in England and Wales had been fined for allegedly breaking the UK’s lockdown laws.

The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) released the figures on Thursday, revealing that “8,877 Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) have been recorded by forces in England up to 27 April for breaches . . .

. . . British police across the country have come under criticism for its heavy-handed approach to enforcing the lockdown, including pouring black dye into a lagoon to discourage people from swimming in it, using drones to scold dog walkers in the Peak District, and telling small shop owners to stop selling Easter eggs because they were not “essential”. . . .

. . . In one case, an officer from Lancashire Police threatened to “make something up” to arrest a motorist. The officer was later suspended from the force.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage said this month regarding the Coronavirus Police State: “I do not want to live under a house detention regime or for this country to be remoulded into a police state.”

“I fear… that the arbitrary powers now given to the police may remain in place for a long time to come . . .
