A lecture given by Neil Ferguson (aka ‘Professor Lockdown’) gets interrupted by a member of the audience.
2nd November 2021
During a lecture given by flawed modeller Prof. Neil Ferguson, a member of the audience is outraged and calls him “a fucking murderer” and “a fucking disgrace” before walking out of the lecture theatre.
Neil Ferguson (aka ‘Professor Lockdown’) is the British academic who created the infamous flawed Imperial College model that warned Boris Johnson that, without an immediate lockdown, the coronavirus would cause 500,000 deaths and swamp the National Health Service.
Johnson’s government promptly abandoned its Sweden-like “social distancing” approach, and Ferguson’s model also influenced the U.S. to make lockdown moves with its shocking prediction of over two million Americans dead.
Johan Giesecke, the former chief scientist for the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention, has called Ferguson’s model “the most influential scientific paper” in memory. He also says it was, sadly, “one of the most wrong.”
