Prime Minister Boris Johnson effectively cancelled Christmas for a third of the UK, and is now threatening to lockdown the entire country on Boxing Day.
That is not enough for the woke state broadcaster, however, which clearly feels it needs to instruct Brit NPCs on how to debunk the dangerous disinformation being spread by their unmutual uncles and disharmonious descendants.
"How should you talk to friends and relatives who believe conspiracy theories?" The BBC headline reads.
"You're dreading the moment. As your uncle passes the roast potatoes, he casually mentions that a coronavirus vaccine will be used to inject microchips into our bodies to track us," the 'five point guide' outlines, adding "Or maybe it's that point when a friend, after a couple of pints, starts talking about how Covid-19 'doesn't exist'."
"Or when pudding is ruined as a long-lost cousin starts spinning lurid tales about QAnon and elite Satanists eating babies."
Ok, so what does one do in this horrible situation, oh mighty and wise Big BBC Brother?
"Keep calm; don't be dismissive; encourage critical thinking; ask questions; don't expect immediate results."
Eh? So don't immediately shut them down as a dangerous conspiracy theorist who spreads fake news? Just retain that thought in your head while you deeply patronise them with your received BBC approved spoon-fed opinion.
Perhaps chase them down the street screeching questions about why they are not wearing a face mask? Probably a good tactic.
