UK: Timid Awakening about Vaccines Safety, in the Midst of a Major Economic, Energy & Geopolitical Crisis
Here is a quick post, offering some comments from developments in the UK, drawing from two videos that appeared in my YouTube feed this morning.
The first is by Dr. Colin Campbell, from the UK, a well known YouTuber and formerly staunch vaccine advocate, turned vaccine skeptic with the avalanche of adverse events observed in the UK and elsewhere.
The video is about about a gathering of UK members of parliament discussing … yes … the forbidden topic of vaccines safety.
The transcript can be found at:
And the official video of the session is here:
Of particular interest are the comments by MP Danny Kruger, who is a Conservative (i.e. not an opposition MP). Here are some particularly pointed excerpts:
“Although many questions about our covid response need to be answered, the UK is by no means the worst offender. We are not Canada, New Zealand or China—places where Governments think they can exterminate covid by depriving their population of the most basic civil liberties. However, I am afraid that we still have many questions to ask ourselves, and even much to be ashamed of.”
“I put on record that in hindsight I am particularly ashamed of my vote to dismiss care workers who did not want to receive the vaccine. I very much hope that the 40,000 care workers who lost their jobs can be reinstated, and indeed compensated.”
“There was also the widespread claim that the vaccine stops transmission, so people should take the jab to protect other people. We were all told that; we all believed that for many months. Last month, we heard from Pfizer that its vaccine was never tested to see whether it would stop transmission.”
“Despite that, we had the notorious claim by Professor Chris Whitty that even though the vaccine brought no benefit to children, children should be vaccinated to protect wider society. I am all for thinking about society, not the individual, but that, again, feels like a profound break with medical ethics. A lot of people are asking what the vaccine does to children and young people, and Professor Whitty is right that the benefit to healthy children seems to be essentially nil.”
“We need to go further and talk about efficacy and safety, not just impact. We need to be explicit about what questions we want answers to. These issues need to be covered directly. We need the public inquiry to consider these matters, because of the compromised nature of medical regulation in our country. I mentioned that the MHRA is funded by the pharmaceutical companies that produce the drugs and vaccines that it regulates. There might be some universe in which that makes sense, but this is not it. I do not think that is right.”
“we need to do a lot more for the injured and bereaved … raise the threshold for compensation for the injured, and the speed of payouts … we need clinics for people with adverse reactions, just as we do for people with long covid…”
“I regret that victims and families have had to struggle so hard to get engagement of the system. I hope that the Minister agrees to meet some of the people here, and other representatives of families affected by the vaccines, for a proper exchange of information and ideas … “
This was of course not a widely viewed debate in the House of Commons, as this was a rather small committee setting. The gathering had actually been triggered by an electronic petition.
Yet it looks like there is awakening among at least some member of parliament about vaccines safety and efficacy issues, after two years of constant promotion of those injections by the authorities, despite the considerable adverse events observed since early 2021 through pharmacovigilance (Yellow Card in the UK - an equivalent to VAERS in the US)
Major Economic, Energy & Geopolitical Crisis
Are we witnessing sort of an accelerated downfall of the UK?
What’s occurring in Brexiteer UK presently? We are observing a simultaneous energy and economic crisis, accompanied with near constant political instability, this in the context of a global geopolitical re-alignment with a diminishing role of the UK - which was not such a long time ago heading an empire with colonies throughout the world ...
Add to this the key role played by the UK in the Ukraine conflict, with allegations that the UK blew the Russian / German owned Nord Stream pipelines in the Baltic (cf Truss’ alleged text message ‘we did it’), that deprive European countries from their traditional (cheap) natural gas supplies and are contributing to the ongoing and growing global energy crisis (and de-indutrialization of Europe).
Economic recession appears inevitable (Nov 11 update):
Here is a video by two geopolitics experts - Alex Christoforou and Alexander Mercouris - discussing the UK situation, which appears unsolvable, and may even get worse with a possible higher influx of refugees in the coming months, from the Ukraine conflict.
In the video, Alexander Mercouris states Sunak will have no choice but to increase taxes, reduce spending, cut support to Ukraine, cut defense spending, cut overseas development aid.
“There is a sense that Britain is retreating, and British newspapers are now filled with articles about Britain being essentially in spiralling decline.”
The two analysts mostly blame the Ukraine policies to have led to this “spiralling decline.”
In the UK, the situation is so dire that energy blackouts are anticipated in the country, as discussed in this article in The Independent that just got out.
“The head of the National Grid has warned British households that blackouts may be imposed between 4pm and 7pm on “really, really cold” winter weekdays if Europe cuts gas exports.”
“John Pettigrew said electricity and gas may be switched off on “those deepest, darkest evenings in January and February” if energy supplies from Europe prove insufficient due to the disruption of the war …”
Actually, the whole of Europe is facing a crisis, as discussed by Christoforou and Mercouris in this other recent video.
A parallel to be done between this energy crisis and the COVID crisis is about the elderly. It was the elderly who mostly suffered from COVID, especially in nursing homes.
(remember the absence of early treatment and the widespread use, instead, of highly questionable drugs such as midazolam)
We may witness a similar situation now with poor / elderly people not being able to afford proper heating and getting unacceptably cold.
This raises many questions of course, including:
Will Western countries such as the UK organize themselves to face this heating crisis and avoid the most vulnerable to suffer or even die from cold this winter?
In this regard, I recently posted about the pretty remarkable way the authorities in the Canadian province of Québec responded to the extremely challenging ice storm, that did dramatically cut heating / electricity supplies, in the middle of the harsh winter, in the province in 1998, this for several weeks.
It may indeed be more than just a few blackouts that countries such as the UK may face, and it’s of paramount importance for these countries to organize their response, to minimize hardship and casualties, with the hope that it will be less botched than their response vis-à-vis COVID-19.
