Legal case against UK Covid lockdown

All the arguments why the lockdowns were more harmful than helpful

Simon Dolan, a British businessman, is currently in the midst of suing the UK government over Covid lockdowns. He and his legal team put together a 70-odd page document laying out arguments why the lockdowns were more harmful than helpful. The document is shared below. Dolan also put together the website keepbritainfree to make sure such a thing can never happen again.

I am distancing myself from the dramatic and “tabloidy” style of Dolan’s videos, but strip away the style and the facts must simply be acknowledged. What is true for Britain is true for the global lockdowns. Data all over the world shows that social distancing, working from home, and cancelling large events was effective. Data shows excplicitly that in particular the closure of schools and lockdowns (i.e. the restriction of movement of people) was not effective in reducing the spread of the virus.

The discussion was only ever about flattening the curve, which social distancing measures did. The lockdowns were excessive, disproportionate to the risk of the virus and have already caused more long-term harm than the virus ever could have. The discussion should never have been no measures vs complete lockdown, but to find a reasonable middle ground.

I would also remind everyone that the increased case numbers we’re seeing right now are likely due to the type of testing that is done, which discovers even debris of the virus in our body, i.e. our immune response was effective and the virus has been killed in our body, but the test picks up dead fragments. It is suggested that a lot of people who now test positive for the virus are not contagious, because their immune system has already killed the virus. The trouble with PCR testing is best explained with the case of the ca 200 Koreans who were initially claimed to be re-infected by the virus, but in fact the PCR test picked up virus debris, after the patients’ immune system had done their job.

The fact that case numbers are increasing while numbers of deaths are dramatically sinking, is a clear indication that people are developing immunity and that the PCR tests are picking up dead virus debris.

Disclaimer: I am against the Covid lockdowns. More reasonable measures could have been taken. Governments, media and social media created a hype and a panic where none was necessary. The lockdowns caused more harm then good in the long-term. We have all the data to prove that. Even though many countries have now loosened their measures, I still write and collect data to make sure something like this will never happen again.

I have no political affiliation. I am not an anti-vaxxer or government consipiracist. I am a well-educated, reasonable being. I advocate for people paying more attention to local government, local action according to local needs. I advocate for people leaving social media and come back to live in the real world, engage their brains and common sense.

I am a scientist and writer. I aim to be a voice of reason and facts in this distorted world in which opinions are considered truth.
