Quarter in UK believe Covid was a hoax, poll

Quarter in UK believe Covid was a hoax, poll 

Nineteen per cent of people in the survey said it was true or probably true that “the UK government carried out the 2005 attacks on the underground in London to encourage support for war in the Middle East”

18% said it was definitely or probably true that “the Manchester Arena attack involved ‘crisis actors’ who pretended to be injured or killed – people weren’t really killed or injured”.

Three out of 10 people thought the “Great Reset” initiative announced by the World Economic Forum in 2020 was a conspiracy to impose a totalitarian world government.

Between a fifth and a quarter of people - 8 million to 10 million adults - said they would protest against -

The introduction of central bank digital currencies, 

A “deep state” of military, intelligence and government officials who try to secretly manipulate government policy, 

“15-minute cities” and 

Against vaccines.

From the article:

“The findings … come from an April survey by SAVANTA …”

SAVANTA is an intriguing ‘polling’ company, if that is the best way to describe what they do.

A flavour of SAVANTA’s work…


“A new report has revealed worrying levels of antisemitism in Britain’s Muslim community … The polling was conducted by SAVANTA ComRes in late 2019 …”


“Voters think police have problem with antisemitism, poll finds … The poll, which was carried out by SAVANTA ComRes …”


“44% of UK Muslims back anti-Semitic conspiracy theories, poll finds … The report is based on a poll of 750 British Muslims conducted by … SAVANTA-ComRes ...”


“More Brits now consider Israel for holiday than before virus … [suggests] SAVANTA ComRes survey for Jewish News and BICOM ...”


“British public backs Starmer over Corbyn election ban … The survey, was conducted by SAVANTA …”


“According to pollster Andrew Hawkins, chairman of SAVANTA ComRes, although the Chief Rabbi’s intervention is not going to prove a ‘game changer’, it will harm Corbyn’s already dire approval rating … Hawkins said: ‘This speaks more to Corbyn’s leadership …’”

Not saying that Savanta’s fascinating work (and/or the people who commission Savanta and other similar companies to carry out ‘opinion polls’ which can then be presented and spun in the media) is/are deeply agenda-driven.

Just raising this as a distinct possibility.

Who benefits from raising spectres of fear, alarm, and concern about millions of “mad” “conspiracy theorists” [sic]?

Who benefits from tarnishing sceptics with this term?

The term “conspiracy theorist” is intended to connote irrationality, alienation, lower socioeconomic status, disconnection from reality, paranoia … far rightwing views, anti-immigrant bigotry and (famously) antisemitism.

Does “conspiracy theorists” sound like a reasonable and balanced phrase to describe assorted scientists, statisticians, medical doctors, nurses, journalists and other professionals who raise questions about politicised (mis)interpretations and (mis)representations and (mis)applications of scientific and medical data?

Savanta will almost certainly be a front Company for Israeli intelligence services. For them to have 750 British Moslems, they must poll in Birmingham and Leicester and Bradford etc . They are also supposed to leave a card informing people of to whom they have been giving answers to , nobody I know has ever heard of them . It's easier to make up believable numbers in an office in London than sending people all over the country asking questions of strangers

Prof. Bruce Roser, formerly Cambridge University, retired, 88 yo. Received a sample as he has alway been a world authority on virus. He was so shocked when he saw it that he left his Swiss laboratory (he has his own team of scientists) and went back to his family in the UK. He rang and told his former Sydney Uni mate, Edward Clark, what he thought. I recorded that phone conversation (illegally). Months later, Bruce Roser got back to work and developed an vaccine the likes of which the world has never seen before. Pfizer & Moderna laughed at him until he proved it worked. Now he says they have come up with something 'very similar' which they say they had been working on all the time. I know, he knows they are lying. It is no hoax. 4 of my anti vaccine friends are dead from Covid 19. All forgotten now. But it should NOT be forgotten. Also the geneticist team at Cambridge worked on the samples they got & proved what appeared in Wuhan was a second mutation. It was NOT the origin of the virus. If there is any conspiracy involved it is that CHINA DID NOT CREATE THIS. IT DID NOT LEAK FROM A WUHAN LAB. One of the people your post mentions? Proven false.

Pathologist falsely claims COVID-19 is a hoax, no worse than the flu
