I believe the deranged fantasy of Zero Covid is one of the biggest atrocities committed against humans in the modern age.

Zero Covid equals Zero Freedom, Zero Spontaneity, Zero Contact, Zero Humanity, Zero Education, Zero Growth and, most chillingly, from a basic science perspective, Zero Immunity.

Attempting to stamp out an airborne, highly contagious virus that has already swept the globe multiple times is a fool’s errand.

The Western leaders who advocated – or even attempted ­– such a policy in civilised and free societies should look at the carnage the authoritarian President Xi Jinping has unleashed on the good and long-suffering people of China, who have been pushed to the brink and are finally fighting back, then hold their heads in shame.

Like Jacinda Ardern who treated New Zealand as a prison island, banning her hapless citizens from leaving or returning for over two years, and Justin Trudeau, who removed the basic human rights of Canadians who exercised their right to bodily autonomy.

Then there’s the outrageous claim made by Scotland’s nationalist leader Nicola Sturgeon, whose main pandemic adviser Devi Sridhar was a telegenic Zero Covid zealot, that her nation only failed to stamp out the virus because of pesky English folk crossing the non-existent border.

Perhaps no one was more evangelical about China’s approach than the UK’s current Chancellor Jeremy Hunt – recently imposed in an anti-democratic coup – who spent weeks enthusing that the British government, then led by Boris Johnson, should follow its policy, even lobbying the health minister to lock Brits testing positive for the Covid in Chinese-style quarantine facilities.

There’s the outrageous claim made by Scotland’s nationalist leader Nicola Sturgeon that her nation only failed to stamp out the virus because of pesky English folk crossing the non-existent border, and perhaps no one was more evangelical about China’s approach than the UK’s current Chancellor Jeremy Hunt

It was blindingly obvious to anyone without a dictatorial streak that the longer such horrors were inflicted on a population in what would be an ultimately futile attempt to keep Covid at bay, the longer the pain and horror of the pandemic and lockdowns would last.

In the end, most folk in the West were able to ignore months of damaging scaremongering government propaganda to realise that policies associated with Zero Covid have very little to do with a virus and everything to do with control.

Which brings us to the sorry state of China today, where 35 months since the first reported discovery of Covid, the Chinese people remain subjected to torturous, draconian and, quite frankly, dangerous restrictions on their day to day lives.

Testing and isolation is constant; government officials in hazmat suits, robots and drones patrol the streets barking orders; while a simple trip to the shop can see you end up in a prison-like quarantine camp for weeks on end.

I guess at least the mainstream broadcast media has caught up to the horror of Zero Covid tactics, with BBC reporter Ed Lawrence (left) even being detained and violently attacked while covering the unrest in Shanghai


So determined to pull the wool over the eyes of his people, Xi’s goons have even censored matches at the World Cup in order to edit out shots of packed stadiums with maskless fans.

Against all odds, given the ferocity of the authorities to crack down on even the slightest hint of civil unrest, brave Chinese freedom fighters are hitting the streets in Shanghai, Beijing, Xi’An, Urumqi, Nanjing and Wuhan, Covid’s Ground Zero, shouting: ‘Down with the Chinese Communist Party! Down with Xi Jinping.’

God bless their brave souls; I pray more take the chance to allow for a genuine revolution.

The spark for such unprecedented protests – the most notable since Tiananmen Square in 1989 – was an apartment fire in Xinjiang, where increasingly ludicrous Covid measures are believed to have resulted in a loss of at least ten lives, including a three-year-old, whose entire time on earth was blighted by Covid totalitarianism.

The persecuted Uighurs, already suffering from months locked indoors and being monitored at all times, were likely trapped in a growing inferno because the doors were sealed by the authorities to keep everyone inside, all in the name of – you guessed it – Zero Covid.

China is experiencing an unprecedented wave of Covid which has sparked tough lockdowns, testing regimes and mask mandates

While it’s unlikely to happen, Xi, the evil leader of the Chinese Communist Party, deserves to fall for the unrelenting pain and horror he has inflicted on his citizens.

Not to mention the blindingly obvious fact that if China hadn’t tried to cover up the outbreak of Covid-19 in the first place, most likely unintentionally leaked from a lab, then the world wouldn’t have faced the peril of the past two years in the first place.

Every major international leader and organisation should be condemning Zero Covid and Xi in no uncertain terms.

But predictably there’s stony silence from the likes of the World Health Organisation,  critics accused of being complicit in the Chinese Covid cover-up from the start.

I guess at least the mainstream broadcast media has caught up to the horror of Zero Covid tactics, with BBC reporter Ed Lawrence even being detained and violently attacked while covering the unrest in Shanghai.

If only the Beeb, CNN, Channel 4, Sly News and the like had been as interested when western governments were committing such an affront to civil liberties in the name of Covid.

Instead, as I wrote about here at the time, they diligently ignored the protests and descent, labelling freedom fighters as anti-vaxxers or conspiracy theorists to fit their narrative.

On the very day of the BBC incident and growing coverage of Xi’s human rights outrage, new British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak will outline a soft on China policy of ‘robust pragmatism’ in a speech in London tonight.

It’s a far cry from Sunak on the campaign trail this summer who insisted China ‘is the biggest-long term threat to Britain and the world’s economic and national security’.

In July, a bombastic Sunak, desperate to win over the Conservative party faithful, went further, declaring: ‘Enough is enough. For too long, politicians in Britain and across the West have rolled out the red carpet and turned a blind eye to China’s nefarious activity and ambitions. I will change this on day one as PM.’

If there’s any evidence that power corrupts, it’s Fishy Rishi’s weak approach after entering Number 10.

Perhaps it’s hard for our leaders to condemn China on Zero Covid, as it would be an acknowledgement that they too massively overreacted to the threat of the virus for far too long, damning us to the economic hellscape where we now find ourselves.

Or is it something more sinister? Some of them probably quite like the unremitting control, via constant surveillance, horrifying censorship and the social credit system, that communist China now exerts over its citizens.

But China’s Zero Covid policy is becoming a humanitarian crisis.

It’s time for the West to raise up and back the heroic protestors putting everything on the line to challenge that tyrannical monster Xi.

I salute them all.
