British Empire’s MI6 Pushes Line That ‘Wuhan Lab’ Spread COVID
May 30, 2021 (EIRNS)—Today’s Daily Mail reports that “British intelligence is working alongside their U.S. counterparts,” under the headline, “Wuhan Lab Leak Theory ‘IS Feasible’ Says British Intelligence as Evidence Mounts That COVID Was Engineered by Chinese Scientists.” U.S. President Joe Biden’s order for a 90-day Intelligence Community investigation admits that there is no new evidence that the COVID-19 virus leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab. The report is open to being another “WMD” hoax with no evidence, and to add to the efforts to provoke a war.
Mike Robinson, editor of the UK Column website, reminded EIR that former MI6 Chief Richard Dearlove, a leading Russiagate hoaxster, led the way in Wuhan lab campaign last year, telling the Telegraph on June 3, 2020: “I do not think that this [pandemic] started as an accident.... It raises the issue, if China ever were to admit responsibility, does it pay reparations? I think it will make every country in the world rethink how it treats its relationship with China.” On July 12, 2020, he told Sky News: “I subscribe to the theory ... that it’s an engineered escapee from the Wuhan Institute (of Virology).”
The Daily Mail quotes Tory MP Tom Tugendhat, chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and a leading hysteric against Russia and China, as saying: “The silence coming from Wuhan is troubling. We need to open the crypt and see what happened to be able to protect ourselves in the future. That means starting an investigation, along with partners around the world and in the WHO.”
The Daily Mail article goes further:
“Meanwhile, an explosive new study claims Chinese scientists created COVID in a Wuhan lab, then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.
“The paper’s authors, British Prof. Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen, wrote that they have had ‘prima facie evidence of retro-engineering in China’ for a year—but were ignored by academics and major journals.”
Dalgleish is a professor of oncology at St. George’s University, and virologist Sørensen chairs the pharmaceutical company, Immunor. “They said they tried to publish their findings but were rejected by major scientific journals,” writes the Daily Mail, and: “Even when former MI6 Chief Sir Richard Dearlove spoke out publicly saying the scientists’ theory should be investigated, the idea was dismissed as ‘fake news.’ ”
