Why lockdowns are never the answer

Dan Astin-Gregory interviews broadcaster Julia Hartley-Brewer on July 28th, 2021.

It’s not often a mainstream journalist is prepared to speak out, but today’s guest does exactly that.

Julia Hartley-Brewer presents the weekday breakfast show on talkRADIO and is a regular columnist for the Daily Telegraph, The Sun, and The Spectator. During the course of the pandemic, she has interviewed countless MPs, doctors, scientists, and others about the Government’s Covid-19 response.

Julia has said: ‘Asking questions and demanding evidence for a policy which devastates millions of lives and livelihoods, destroys children’s education and — according to eminent experts from some of the top universities in the world — will cost more lives than it will save… if the evidence for lockdowns is so strong and not just a totally debunked computer model from a year ago, then why are those so in favour of lockdowns so terrified of a public debate?’

Join me today at 12 noon BST when I will be finding out what Julia has learned over the past 18 months and why she believes lockdown always was, and remains, the wrong policy.
