Since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, a number of independent publications and journalists have come under attack from corporate and state-run media outlets and their pundits defending risky government ‘lockdown’ policies and the suspension of civil liberties.

The New Culture Forum speaks to Hitchens who directly challenges the UK government’s mass-panic Coronavirus lockdown policy and explains why its enthusiastic embrace by the British public disturbs him greatly.
