4 ways to confirm that you’ve been lied to

The four ways mentioned here are detailed below this meme:


I’ve done the calculation, and all sources are provided for you to confirm:

METHOD 2: Examine the mortality rate of Sweden

Source of Sweden’s data:

People ask: Why Sweden? Because it is the only control we have in a world where every other nation implemented lesser or more stringent lockdowns – that are prohibited by the science.  So Sweden “should” have had – according to those who opposed its standard, risk-based approach, a vast number of deaths in 2020. But we can see NO trace of additional mortality in Sweden in 2020 after the dry tinder effect of 2019 is taken into accoun.t

METHOD 3: Read John Ioannidis’s paper


METHOD 4: Go to the UK Parliament website

Lockdowns increase even COVID deaths – a draft paper

A couple of weeks ago I started working on a paper with Jason Gavrilis.

My data analysis skills are now very rusty – I’ve not done regressions on large datasets for over 23 years since my doctoral dissertation. In WorkCover I did SAS programming for a year (I was hired for various things, including my ability to do SAS progamming) but programming skills and UNIX skills have a very short half life. Use them or lose them is the rule.

Plus I simply don’t know how to merge different datasets (eg. life expectancy, vaccine status, covid deaths) – never did such things before. Jason, on the other hand, is a whiz with data and with programming (he is using R). Let me therefore note that without Jason this paper would not exist, and I would have not been able to confirm my suspicions that lockdowns increase COVID deaths.

We’ve been fortunate that Martin Lally who’s done two papers that use the Stringency Index, has provided detailed comments on the test regressions that have run by Jason (for Europe). This means Jason is very confident now of the results we are getting.

I’m trying to complete a full draft very soon, and would welcome feedback on the draft:

I think the structure is now emerging – this will likely be a working paper, not sent to a peer-reviewed journal. But it has all the information to conclusively prove that:

  1. Lockdowns DO NOT SAVE EVEN COVID deaths (very strong conclusion)
  2. Lockdowns INCREASE COVID deaths (a weak but very powerful conclusion).



Lockdowns kill, devastation from lockdowns, lockdowns increase covid deaths

My challenge to Dan Andrews and Matthew Guy to prove that covid is even remotely comparable with the Spanish flu

Joseph Goebbels is considered to have said: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it”. In this case we’ve had ALL KINDS OF leaders – political, health, media and academic, lying to us for over two years. EVERYTHING they’ve done – lockdowns, border closures – have been justified on the basis of the big lie that COVID is in the range of the Spanish flu. This is the BIGGEST LIE AT LEAST IN AUSTRALIA’S HISTORY.

I’m putting my money on the line. Let these people prove me wrong. I’ve issued three challenges to these people:

6 June 2022 [Brett Sutton]

8 June 2022 [Dan Andrews]

and (10 June 2022)  the above two plus Matthew Guy:

Mike Ryan interviewed me on 6 June 2022 about my challenge to Brett Sutton – audio here.


SKY NEWS: Rowan Dean provided an extensive commentary on Sky News on 12 June 2022 about my challenge to Dan Andrews. Extract here.

INFORMER: On 6 July 2022, Informer published this interview.
