Below is a recent tweet from sometime government appointee and journalist, Toby Young which indicates policy based evidence making in action. He’s not just looking for evidence – he’s looking for evidence it’s wrong!
Toby Young@toadmeisterLooking for evidence that Imperial College’s modelling is wrong, the infection fatality rate is <0.4% and the Govt should have stuck to its “herd immunity” strategy? My new website – Lockdown Sceptics – is a gathering place for Covid dissidents.
He’s already decided it’s wrong – he just needs some evidence. Good job he’s not a lawyer or a scientist – if he were he might realise he’s actually got it the wrong way round.
