    THANKS FOR THE LINKY

    G&T admin provides context for why people are a bit perturbed by Chris Barrie: http://www.chrisbarrie.co.uk/

    #261394

    GIVE SOME CONTEXT

    Forum poster breaks thread etiquette to quickly address what is being referenced.

    He hasn’t actually said anything altogether bad, there isn’t anything wrong with keeping an open mind about anything. And there is something of a genuine worry, especially from groups such as Liberty (https://www.libertyhumanrights.org.uk) that emergency laws drafted in to help control the virus by limiting freedoms won’t be revoked and will remain on the books to be used as in ways they weren’t intended (It took 10 years to overturn over zealous section 44 of the anti-terrorism act which allowed for blanket stop and search on the grounds that someone looked a bit terroristy, and was basically used as a free for all to harass innocent people).

    But he equally has avoided re-enforcing all the things we ought to be doing (wearing masks, social distancing etc), which is probably worse, and why the former comes across as … “well perhaps we shouldn’t be doing all the things scientists and medical experts say we should” in the name of freedom.

    I think that single paragraph of his comes with all the good intentions, but because it is only a single paragraph, there’s a lot of reading between the lines you have to do, and given there are a scary number of people who do believe we should basically be ignoring all sane advise, it can be too easily read as such.

    More egregious than this is probably when Paul Jackson publicly stated on a live stream he was going to go and hug his grandkids because fuck everyone. But that’s another story.

    Now, back to shit posting terrible puns for the 7671st time!
