www.gov.ukAsk a minister a question about coronavirusSubmit a question about coronavirus (COVID-19) to be put to a minister. If your question is chosen, the minister will answer it during an event broadcast to the public.
Not sure about this. Do not underestimate them. They pretty much know exactly what sort of questions they will be asked, for most they already have stock answers ready. Its a really useful tool for them to keep an eye on the mood of the population and to identify potential risks and then take action. I see no value in providing the enemy, for that is what they are, with any intelligence about anything, even if it is putting a name to a potentially subversive question. Don't trust them one inch.
Great questions, but to make them more fob-offable could you word them so:
Can the minister confirm that (source) has produced evidence to show that no live isolation of the SARS-Cov-2 virus has taken place in the world?
Can the minister confirm that standardised testing cycles for Covid 19 are being used across all pillars, and that each test does not exceed the 30 cycles that give a feasible PCR test result?
Can the minister confirm that the PCR test cannot differentiate between types of SARs and whether the virus is active or not?
As you are unlikely to get the first 3 chosen in succession it kind of makes question 4 hard to post?
4. is the minister aware that the above questions prove that any restrictions are a gross violation of our human rights and punishable under the terrorism act and also a crime against the sovereign nation of the UK
Just my thoughts...
Yeah, that is a challenge! These are the questions I've submitted so far. I'm sure they are not fob offable, but I have tried. but then I am pretty sure they wont get asked either 😶 Please note that I had to leave some time between leaving each question.
1.Can a minister please explain why policy is being made on the assumption that 100% of the UK population is susceptible to the latest coronavirus when it is reasonable to assume that 40% of the population will already have t cell immunity due to other closely related coronavirus in general circulation and it is likely that more than 25% of the population have already been infected?
2.Is it reasonable to assume that covid 19 was in general circulation in March and April, but as mass testing was not available 'cases' were not reported unless folk had symptoms and if that is reasonable are we really seeing daily rises in "cases' or just the results of more testing?
3.In the interest of delivering clear public information, does the government have an obligation to ensure that all statistical data relating to covid cases and deaths is announced in precise language and with context, and to ensure that imprecise terminology such as 'doubling' and 'exponentially' are not used?
I'd be happy to do this thanks. Will need to properly think about question so minister cant find way to fob it off. Will have a think today and enter one in👍
It may be, but if the government are remotely interested in me as an individual they already have all the information they need. As I am of the opinion that the current situation is due to nothing more sinister than human incompetence I would suggest that asking questions through these 'official' channels might at least give a balance to the questions submitted, even if they are never asked. I guess its called standing up and being counted.
