Elephant in the Room Square

Our pandemic response – The Holyrood election’s elephant in the room

I ACCEPTED an invitation to stand for the Freedom Alliance a mere seven weeks ago. The wholesale dismissal of any sense or expertise weighing in against the Covid narrative has become intolerable and it was a very easy decision to make.

I recently was privileged to take part in three hustings as a candidate for Edinburgh Northern and Leith constituency in the Scottish Parliamentary elections. It was a dispiriting experience.

As the pest in the corner constantly trying to point out the elephant in the room, I was not surprised by the unwillingness of any of the other candidates to acknowledge crucial questions and issues relating to what is far and away the profoundest crisis of our lifetimes. To explain my disappointment I sent this letter after the last hustings to the other candidates.

Dear All,

I just wanted to respectfully express my disappointment that a national, indeed global crisis on the scale of the Covid-19 catastrophe has been so conspicuously absent from political debate in the course of our three shared hustings together. I know for a fact that questions concerning the mortality figures, the collapse of medical ethics, the censorship of qualified counter voices, the threat of health passports and the adverse events profile emerging from the “vaccine”, all urgent and legitimate issues, have been submitted to these events and, presumably, passed over.

I cannot imagine a more urgent subject for discussion and enquiry. The stakes really are so enormous for all of us.

Be assured that, along with a growing number of highly-qualified clinicians and scientists, I have researched openly and earnestly into the very many and troubling aspects to this unprecedented medical-political alliance which now looks increasingly set upon fundamental changes to how we live our lives.

My experience of making “Witchhunt” (about the weaponisation of antisemitism to destroy Jeremy Corbyn and his movement), a film project supported and enabled by some of the most honourable and brave people I have met, demonstrated how effectively a false (and yes, malevolent) narrative can be created by a combination of powerful interest groups and the media that serve them.

It is clear that the public has been deceived about the severity of Sars-Cov-2 and that the mechanism to enforce compliance with draconian state intervention was achieved with a cynical and frankly wicked deployment of psychological manipulation.

I understand you are party politicians with limited room for manoeuvre. You are subject to a parameterised set of responses and concerns determined by a publicly-prescribed and media-created reality. I also realise that over time, the incendiary truth about all of this will most likely be subsumed in the broader changes and dislocations that are coming. I would however simply ask, at a basic human level, that you remain open-minded and guided by conscience and integrity.

As I said at the hustings, the Freedom Alliance is but one expression of an emerging movement that understands the true value of being human and regardless of the results on May 6th, will continue to grow, and demand accountability from those charged with truthfully representing the best interests of ordinary people.

Sincerely yours,

Jon Pullman

All three hustings, conducted on Zoom of course, quite studiously avoided any proper engagement with the many critical and troubling issues connected to the crisis. The assembled candidates comprised SNP (Ben MacPherson is actually a sitting minister), Lib Dem, Scottish Labour, the Conservatives and the Greens. None of these folk were remotely interested in even acknowledging my observations let alone discussing them, although all five did take the opportunity of confirming their belief in the necessity for lockdown at the Leith Community Council event.
