‘Prof Legover still spreading misery and thinks Christmas will kill granny’
On one side we have Santa. A man who likes a stocking, gets plenty of sack action, enjoys a mince pie on the side and thinks Christmas is a time to party.
On the other we have Professor Neil Ferguson. A chap who is pretty similar in so many ways when it comes to sack action on the side but who apparently thinks Christmas will KILL YOUR GRANNY. Bah humbug.
Here we go again. The scientist whose original Covid modelling led to our endless death cycle of lockdown/firebreak/circuitbreak/heartache has been out spreading his festive cheer once again.
You know the one I’m on about, surely?
He was the one caught breaking his own rules back in the spring by having his married lover over to his gaff to help, er, get his data up.
His defence was that because he’d had coronavirus he was “probably” immune from catching it or spreading it. Of course mate. Shame hypocrisy doesn’t come with the same immunity, isn’t it?
Any case Prof Legover of Lockdown resigned from advising the Government in shame and we all lived happily ever after.
Only we haven’t. Because, like a fart from the Grim Reaper, he’s hanging around poisoning any positivity.
Discussing the totally unscientific rule of six and families gathering around the Christmas dinner table, Ferguson warned: “Loved ones will catch Covid-19 and die.”
Blimey those long winter nights must fly past in his household mustn’t they?
Yes of course it’s illegal, yes of course we must take coronavirus seriously, but when the rule of six includes new born babies and toddlers (who rarely get ill and do not appear to be infectious) it just doesn’t make any sense.
Poor telly presenter Victoria Derbyshire has been forced to apologise this week for simply showing humanity and compassion on this one. Her crime? Saying she’d have her elderly parents with her on Christmas Day, breaking the law by having seven together.
Now given that, when you have parents in their eighties it may well be their last Christmas, who can blame her?
I can’t imagine the pain and guilt any of us would feel if we left an elderly loved one alone and lonely this Christmas only to lose them in 2021?
Because let’s not forget that in the Government’s increasing panic and hysteria there are still, statistically, 18 other things you are more likely to die of than coronavirus in the UK.

Not sure that’s a stat that Neil Ferguson has a chart for though. Given that some of his previous efforts only specialise in horror show predictions.
For 2005’s bird flu he said 200million worldwide could die, when the reality was just 282. Or how about 2009’s Swine Flu? Ferguson’s modelling on that one suggested 65,000 UK deaths. It was 457.
Mad Cow Disease back in 2002 had him predicting up to 50,000 deaths.
It was 177. And back to the start of our current pandemic our Bonking Boffin initially warned up to 3% of the UK population would die – that’s 1.5million.
Outrageous law breaking with huge parties and raves is obviously wrong but leaving the old and lonely to suffer? Social isolation has an increased risk of clinical depression for up to nine years later.
Our Government has treated older generations and care home residents appallingly. Is it any wonder that so many of them would be willing to take their chances for one more Christmas of seeing their great grandchildren’s eyes sparkling with joy and tinsel this year?
And so many families would be willing to break a law – one set by lawbreakers let’s not forget – to enable them?
