And this incredibly well-informed and intelligent committee simply hung on every word from China and didn't consider that, for whatever reason, information from China might not be the entire truth?Politicians from the Commons Foreign Affairs Committee said that China should have played a central role in collecting data on its spread as the country when the outbreak started.
You have to ask , if they think this is wrong, why did they do the very same thing immediately we had an outbreak and continue with lies and deceit on a daily basis?
As you say, they did learn a lesson from China. Dissembling is the order of the day/week/month/year.
(Lest it appear otherwise, many individuals in China did their very best to inform the rest of China, and the rest of the world, to the best of their ability. And to their personal detriment.)
