Those who have claimed for three years that COVID was only called a “pandemic” so that governments around the world could field test dictatorial controls to take people’s freedom away appear now to have been 100 percent right.

For years the center right has been saying that the real purpose of the scamdemic was to give governments the excuse to implement autocratic, un-democratic powers to lay waste to the economy, pump up the power of the state, and to see just how much they could get away with to take away the freedom of the common rabble whom they so despise.

Well, now we see that this is 100 percent tru by the release of a treasure trove of WhatsApp messages posted behind the scenes among officials of the freedom-hating British government.

One message is particularly pointed. It is from Matt Hancock, who at the time was the Health Minister in the United Kingdom.

In this message, Hancock was querying his fellow despots asking, “When do we deploy the new variant?”

Now, he wasn’t saying that the government was releasing a COVID variant itself. What he was talking about was when the government was going to deploy its next round of anti-democratic controls on the populace.

The story came from the Telegraph:

Per the paper:

Matt Hancock wanted to “deploy” a new Covid variant to “frighten the pants off” the public and ensure they complied with lockdown, leaked messages seen by The Telegraph have revealed.

The Lockdown Files – more than 100,000 WhatsApp messages sent between ministers, officials and others – show how the Government used scare tactics to force compliance and push through lockdowns.

In another message Simon Case, the Cabinet Secretary, said that “the fear/ guilt factor” was “vital” in “ramping up the messaging” during the third national lockdown in Jan 2021.

In other messages, Hancock noted that the new variants would help scare people enough to allow government to do whatever it wanted to destroy people’s jobs, lock people in their homes, and re-engineer society.

In a WhatsApp conversation on Dec 13, obtained by The Telegraph, Damon Poole – one of Mr Hancock’s media advisers – informed his boss that Tory MPs were “furious already about the prospect” of stricter Covid measures and suggested “we can roll pitch with the new strain”.

The comment suggested that they believed the strain could be helpful in preparing the ground for a future lockdown and tougher restrictions in the run-up to Christmas 2020.

Mr Hancock then replied: “We frighten the pants off everyone with the new strain.”

Mr Poole agreed, saying: “Yep that’s what will get proper bahviour [sic] change.”

This is complete proof that government did not care one whit about medicine, or science, or helping people.

It was all about finding ways to exert power so that future efforts to oppress the people would have set precedents.

Lockdowns, masks, vaccines, all these things were about power. Not science.
