This! This needs circulating widely to try reduce the fear everyone has been whipped up into!

He’s great.

Bigfishylittlefishy Thu 14-May-20 22:37:05

Really like him, I think he’s very trustworthy.
He is having a meeting tomorrow with teaching unions to try and ease their fears.

I genuinely feel better when he tells me something. Like the same sentence from anyone else just wouldn’t have the same effect.

Wish there was a like button on here as I'd be pressing it now smile

I love him. Like, lots.

What a wonderful man.

Goatymcgoaty Thu 14-May-20 22:47:21

I’ve watched the whole lecture, really balanced and much better than any tabloid frenzy. He’s the unexpected star of all this.

When he says things I believe him, he would make a cert good politician but I am very glad he isnt one!

CuppaZa Thu 14-May-20 22:49:05

I really do like him too.

I agree he is such an unassuming star of this (shit) show. He has my respect. 👍

FlibbertyGiblets Thu 14-May-20 22:52:19

He is ace.

Chris Whitty Rocks!!!

SoMuchToBits Thu 14-May-20 22:56:11

A sensible person.

Teddypops Thu 14-May-20 22:56:56

I hope he's right!

You can watch the whole lecture here:

It's over an hour, but really watchable and answers a lot of questions I've seen come up on these boards. (It was given on 20 April 2020, and it opens with him saying he expects it will need updating as knowledge moves on.)

Cheekychops73 Thu 14-May-20 22:57:40

I am going to watch the full lecture later have seen little clips and it looks really interesting. He's knowledgeable, straight to the point, doesn't use emotive language and is honest. The man is just fab I'm a little bit in love with him and his calmness.

TokyoSushi Thu 14-May-20 22:58:38

He's great, I feel like he'll tell you the truth and you can be confident in what he's saying!

roses2 Thu 14-May-20 23:01:36

Poor guy looks exhausted, look at those eyes!

Bleepbloopblarp Thu 14-May-20 23:03:37

I find him very reassuring. He could just be talking absolute shit to calm the masses of course but he does make me feel better!

frumpety Thu 14-May-20 23:04:08

Does it say when he actually said this ? It is obviously cut from a longer briefing and the fact that it has Covid 19 save our rights UK at the top is interesting.
Everything he is saying in this piece was also true before lockdown and he was involved in the process of lockdown, so he must have believed that that was the right course of action to follow.

GymSloth Thu 14-May-20 23:04:52

Yes, I love him too.

He comes across so well in the briefings. He is calm, measured, clearly very intelligent and he actually answers the questions! I'm impressed that he performs so much better than the politicians, whose actual job it is...

mooshie06 Thu 14-May-20 23:05:28

Totally love this man, honest, reassuring, no agenda.....he genuinely makes me feel better and as above, this really ought to be seen by everyone as it really dampens down the fear the media have drilled home to us
