Professor Michael Baker’s recent Stuff comments appeared desperate and certainly revealing.
First, the desperate. He labelled the UK’s possible move from Covid-19 restrictions to freedom a “barbaric experiment”.
Let that sink in.
Returning to normal is a “barbaric experiment”. But not locking people up, making them wear masks, not letting them hug nana, subjecting them to alert systems, track and trace, closing businesses, schools and playgrounds, etcetera. The restrictions themselves are not experimental or barbaric. But letting people go about their business is.
Professor Baker seemingly has no awareness of how messed up that sounds.
