Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown says COVID-19 was 'planned' and 'designed'
He has also released a new anti-lockdown song
Ian Brown, frontman of legendary Manchester band Stone Roses, has courted controversy by referring to COVID-19 as the "plandemic" in a series of bizarre Twitter rants.
Brown's rants began on September 5th when he said: "NO LOCKDOWN NO TESTS NO TRACKS NO MASKS NO VAX".
This was followed up with jabs at Bill Gates, the World Health Organisation and members of parliament, before Brown turned his attentions toward the media.
He said: "So I'm a Conspiracy Theorist HA! a term invented by the lame stream media to discredit those who can smell and see through the government/media lies and propaganda".
Brown has now gone one step further, releasing a new song with an anti-lockdown subject matter.
The COVID-sceptic song is called 'Little Seed Big Tree', and the lyrics include: "State shakedown, mass breakdown. Global orders, riding over borders.
"Get behind your doors for the new world order. Doctor Evil and his needle. Doctor Evil with a masterplan. A forced vaccine, like a bad dream. They'll plant a microchip, every woman, child and man."
Brown also questioned the severity of lockdown measures.
Despite what Ian Brown says, the World Health Organisation (WHO) have asserted the dangers of coronavirus.
Evidence says: "Globally, about 3.4% of reported COVID-19 cases have died. By comparison, seasonal flu generally kills far fewer than 1% of those infected."
Similar thoughts have been echoed by another Mancunian, Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher. Gallagher said the coronavirus was a "load of b******s", and admitted he hadn't worn a mask in shops or on public transport.
Speaking as a guest on The Matt Morgan podcast, Gallagher said: "Listen to me.. it's not a law. There's too many f**king liberties being taken away from us now."
Ian Brown joins a growing list of celebrities using their platform to push inaccurate information that has been widely debunked by public health bodies. Football pundit Matt Le Tissier and Loose Women anchor Denise Welch have also been criticised for their views on the pandemic.
