Freedom Alliance/Medical Freedom Alliance

Post by Little waster » Fri Apr 23, 2021 10:30 am

As part of our ongoing series "News which feels like it came from a year ago" I'm sure you'll all hug yourself with delight with the news that the libertarian man-babies will be contesting the local elections and the Hartlepool by-election under the banner "Freedom Alliance" answering the age-old question if The Plague had a political party what would it look like?

Despite being in existence (and presumably confined in their parents' houses) since Summer 2020 they have yet to actually produce any policies beyond opposing lockdown, masks and now vaccination. As such although they are standing for election their entire platform begins and ends with opposing Lockdown, a platfrom rendered completely pointless by the ongoing lifting of restrictions mostly due to the vaccination program they've staunchly opposed.

As such, even under their ideal outcome (a single MP and a handful of local councillors), they wouldn't be present in sufficient numbers to make any practical impact and within a matter of weeks their entire raison d'etre would cease to exist. Not that there is much danger of them ending up doing anything more than trailing in behind the guy dressed as a penguin, the MRLP, the LDs and the other pointless fringe oddballs.

The justification of their only policy is:-

COVID is not dangerous
The scientists are lying
The vaccines won't work
Lockdown will result in Communism
Sweden!

And anyway the individual's right to selfishlessly spread a deadly virus supercedes another individual's right not to be killed by this behaviour because there is now a smoking crater filled with toxic sludge where the intellectual and philosophical underpinning of libertarianism used to be.

As an argument it was looking fairly shaky in May 2020 nevermind May 2021, now after a year of the dead stacking up like cordwood it is just openly perverse.


The Alliance bit appears to come from the Anti-lockdown Rallies they attended where the resulting Venn diagram of c.nts allowed various occupants of Dara's Sack to exchange phone numbers.

One such group is the UK Medical Freedom Alliance who describe themselves as:-
We are an alliance of UK medical professionals, scientists and lawyers who have found that the Government’s response to COVID-19 is misguided and not based upon the best available scientific evidence.
Although more accurately that should be:-
We are a couple of homeopaths, an osteopath, a lawyer and a f.cking dentist for some reason, who have found that the Government’s response to COVID-19 is not based upon the wibble we shill to the gullible.
Unsurprisingly their advice directs the public to "natural" and "nutritional" approaches to dealing with respiratory viruses although they still make time to also shill Ivermectin and even f.cking Hydroxychloroquine.

Also unsurprisingly John Stone rocks up in the BMJ to JAQ-off proudly brandishing his membership so it must be exclusive.

Meanwhile in minute writing at the very bottom of the page just past the begging section and acres of blank space is:-
We do not take responsibility for the ways in which people may choose to use the information presented on the UK Medical Freedom Alliance website. Our website contains general medical information. This information is not medical advice and should not be treated as such. Please consult with your healthcare professional when making decisions.
Which is not the tone of the rest of the website in the slightest.
It's meta, so it is allowed.
