Lockdown: British Government’s psychological attack on the public

Following Rishi Sunak’s recent attack on the UK Government’s Covid-19 lockdown policies and his claim that scientists had too much influence, Brian Gerrish interviews psychotherapist Dr Christian Buckland, who warns of the dangers of the use of applied psychology for political purposes.

Dr Buckland’s vital analysis covers the dangers of created fear in the public mind, the dangerous use of fear and guilt messaging, three-word slogans, the adverse impact of psychology on informed consent, and the backroom policy makers in SAGE and SPI-B, who acknowledged the risks of their policies but appear not to have taken steps to mitigate them.

Dr Buckland highlights key documents exposing the Government’s malicious use of applied psychology, and suggests there is a need for a full public inquiry into the political use of psychology during the Covid-19 pandemic and during the subsequent drive for widespread vaccinations.
