The Independent's article reveals the agenda is being pushed by a strange organisation called the Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) (and yes, although it is based in East Finchley, London, it uses the American spelling).
The Center for Countering Digital Hate previously came into prominence for its role in the Labour Party “anti-semitism” controversy.
Its patron is Rachel Riley, the pro-Israel TV presenter who notoriously smeared Jeremy Corbyn.
The CCDH's boss, Imran Ahmed, who is quoted in The Independent article, used to work as a spin doctor for Blairite Labour Party politician Angela Eagle.
In 2020 the CCDH suddenly, and inexplicably, switched its focus from Labour "anti-semitism" to attacking those who dared to challenge the official line on Covid.
This has now evolved into these calls for all questioning of vaccines to be censored.
In doing so, the CCDH has been rolling out the same smearing, emotive language (“hate”, “populism”, “conspiracy theories”) that it previously used in an entirely different context.
