“Is TV’s favourite Sage member Professor Susan Michie such a big fan of lockdowns because she’s a Communist once known as Stalin’s nanny ?
Few of the Government scientists helping to shape the nation’s Covid strategy are as influential and ubiquitous as Professor Susan Michie. Not only is she a senior member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) but also two other groups guiding Ministers and she is regularly given a platform by the BBC and ITV to share her ideas.
