Britain’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) was created to supposedly “provide scientific and technical advice to support government decision makers during emergencies.” SAGE is routinely quoted in news reports about the dangers and deadliness of SARS-Covi-1. But Zero Hedge recently uncovered startling admissions by SAGE directors: they have been enlisted only to provide scary scenarios which support lockdowns and restrictions and to avoid contrary information.
The latest SAGE pronouncements envision anything from 200 to 6,000 deaths a day from Omicron depending on how many more restrictions the British government imposes “— up to and very much including another lockdown.” But Fraser Nelson of The Spectator recently interviewed Graham Medley, the chair of the Sage modelling committee. Medley revealed that SAGE is given very limited orders by government officials, “and asked to churn out worse-case scenarios without being asked to comment on how plausible they are.”
They are not allowed to report good outcomes.
