UK Tory leader: Mask requirement is all about social control, not virus | Eastern North Carolina Now

British Member of Parliament Graham Brady, chairman of the influential  1922 Committee of backbench Conservative MP's has fired a shot across the bow of his own party's prime minister in an op-ed in the Daily Mail, a major London newspaper, blasting lockdown requirements especially the mask requirement. "I believe the real purpose of masks is social control - it's time to turn down the fear dial", Brady declared.

Brady compared the public's reaction to the mask requirement to the Stockholm Syndrome, and cited an ominous statement from a group of behavioral experts who were advising the UK government in March 2020 that "the perceived level of personal threat needs to be increased among those who are complacent using hard hitting emotional messaging".  Brady stated that the handling of the pandemic was not consistent with how a free society is supposed to operate.

"Let us take responsibility for our own appetite for risk, for our own lives, once again.  Government should treat us all as adults", Brady concluded.

One of the UK's scientific advisors calls masks "comfort blankets" that do nothing to stop the spread of the virus. Dr. Colin Axon of the UK's SAGE committee pointed out that while masks can stop droplets containing the virus, that is not how the virus primarily spreads. Most transmission is by fine aerosol particles and the gaps between the mask fibers are 5,000 times larger than those particles.
