Doctor: “We See Self-Harming 10 Year-Olds In A&E!”

Dr John Wright of Bradford Royal Infirmary, has been writing a diary for the BBC during the pandemic. In his latest post he said:

“Children are a lost tribe in the pandemic. While they remain (for the most part) perplexingly immune to the health consequences of Covid-19, their lives and daily routines have been turned upside down. Children in mental health crisis used to be brought to A&E about twice a week. Since the summer it’s been more like once or twice a day. Some as young as 10 have cut themselves, taken overdoses, or tried to asphyxiate themselves. There was even one child aged eight.”

The “Born In Bradford Study” which has investigated children’s wellbeing during the pandemic found that kids are increasingly isolated, anxious and bored, which is having a detrimental effect on their mental health. The result is that children are arriving at hospital in greater numbers and at younger ages after self-harming or taking overdoses.

Professor Russell Viner, president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health told BBC News this week that: “…the pandemic has caused a range of harms to children across the board from being isolated and lonely to suffering from sleep problems and reduced physical activity.” Children’s sport is currently banned, the only exception being organised sports for under-12’s in Scotland.

The NSPCC said that counselling for loneliness provided by its Childline service has risen by 10% during the pandemic. Neil Homer, who has been volunteering since 2009, has never known anything like it. Discussing the effects of lockdown on children, he told the BBC: “It’s had a devastating impact.”

To make matters worse, treatment for child mental health problems was falling well short of the demand, long before anyone heard of Covid-19. Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield told The Guardian recently that lockdowns, “will be causing even more damage to many children’s mental wellbeing and putting even greater strains on mental health services, potentially for years to come.”

It wicked in the extreme. The Health Secretary knows this. The government and it’s scientific advisers know that children’s lives are being destroyed. Why don’t they care? Children are, as Dr. John Wright said, “immune to the health consequences of covid.” The average age of someone “dying with the virus” is 82. It has a 99.7 per cent survival rate. None of it makes any sense. Where is the media? Why is every political party in the UK supporting this assault on the nations children? Where is the opposition to this insanity?

Sunil Bhopal, an expert in child health at Newcastle University said recently that, “….growing up in a world where even playing with your friends is illegal threatens to cause long-lasting damage to many. I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say children and their families have been abandoned” he said.

Well, just colour me shocked that months of systematic, demoralizing, cruel, unfounded and purely unbridled evil by msm and money grubbing politicians has caused the most innocent among us to experience unparalleled levels of guilt. Every creepy “journalist” and enablers standing by silent, truly are committing unforgivable war crimes. Join me in writing letters informing these be-damned. 🙂


I even saw a video from Britain of police stopping children from throwing snowballs and making a snowman. What could be better for children’s mental and physical well-being than being in the fresh air, having fun and playing with friends. It is hard not to feel despair.

Anyone who tells you vaccines are safe and effective is Lying.

Please encourage anyone you know who believes in this massive covid hoax to read the downloadable books of Vernon Coleman on this site at the bottom of the page.
And to read his amazing book about vaccines and vaccination. Let’s spread the truth to all of those still in the Matrix, in any way possible. Thanks for listening,

These children can not possible be alright when They grow up. Why are the people not doing anything to stop this. I can not believe it has gone this far. Now these doctors are telling us we need to wear two masks. Since the public is asleep We might as well get used to wearing masks and being locked up for a very long time. Thank goodness I have no small children and no grandchildren. I have never worn a mask and I am still alive.


The silence of false messiahs such as Greta ‘You’ve stolen my childhood’ Thunberg is currently deafening.

This is very worth while reading. Much like the creators of smartphones and social media platforms, etc don’t let their children use their own products, so the promoters of the vaccines act likewise.


Bill Gates former personal physician wrote an article in the mainstream media in March 2018 saying that Bill Gates refused to have his family vaccinated. The hypocrisy of these people is truly stunning.

I personally know of 3 kids under the age of 16 who have self harmed very recently. The first lockdown I had heard some anecdotes about it happening, but this time round it is as if so many people are at the end of their tether. Maybe it’s a combination of the length of time it has persisted, the poor dark weather, the social isolation and many other factors.

No young person is going to come out this mentally intact. Their ambitions should be limitless, the world should be their oyster. We should be fearful on behalf of our children and allow them to live in blissful ignorance. But none of this is the case. We are watching the destruction of our future society.


This is also part of the agenda to break down society.
It is not healthy for children to be locked up and using Tablets, Phones, Laptops to do school work and keep themselves occupied. Watching MSM “News” is not helping either.
Any Psychologist who points this out is given a hard time as it goes against the agenda and MSM propoganda.

Smartphones Causing Mental Health Issues in Kids as Young as 2 Years Old.
Smartphones and tablets have become electronic babysitters for many children. They may keep kids out of mom’s hair for a while, but they do come with perils.

According to a recent study, the devices are causing mental health problems in children as young as 2 years old.

Researchers found that children who spend 7 hours a day or more on screens are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with depression or anxiety than youngsters who use screens for an hour a day.

For the study, researchers analyzed data from more than 40,000 kids between the ages of 2 and 17. The data was collected as part of the Census Bureau’s 2016 National Survey of Children’s Health.

this unfolding tragedy defies words at times – I’m reminded of meeting a young Mum the other day with her one year old daughter in her pushchair – she “gave way” on the pavement to me and my client (I am a companion/carer) we struck up a conversation briefly – both of us agreeing in how sad and weird everything now is etc – and I was struck dumb (again) when this young lady told me that… “we used to find that my baby only smiled at people who wore masks !” – I’ve since thought about it and realised just how this must have been the “norm” for babies born in this last year – 2020 ! – somehow we’ve got to find enough voices to call this sham out and make others aware of the coming tyanny

It’s nigh on criminal, can’t even the perpetrators of these insane illogical and inhumane lockdowns and restrictions see the damage both physical and mental they are imposing on their own children and grandchildren? All ages need joy, laughter sport and play.


Of course they see it: but it’s not their children, so they don’t care.

“….I don’t think it is an exaggeration to say children and their families have been abandoned”

Abandoned? No, they’re being persecuted. This is totalitarian humanism at its very worst.

Keep up the good work, Richie. The miserable f*cks in the media will cheer the absolute destruction of human ties.

This is Horrendous.. Makes me so sick to the stomach that NO ONE, not 1 person in authority can end the lockdowns and get children back to school and living their lives as they should do, the long term mental health issues with children will keep rising

A couple of weeks ago my friend who has her own shop was talking to another shop worker from nearby whilst observing the queue for the next door food shop – all mask wearing and 6 foot apart, suddenly a person walked too close to a women with her young child (perhaps 4 year old or so) the child screamed and cried histerically and clung to its mums leg ! my friend was shocked but the person she was talking too called it “covid kid” and said they saw it more and more often nowdays. A whole generation of kids scared to death – mainly by there parents, but also other Influences, tv, friends etc.

It’s so sad, when my grandchildren come to visit I let them play out with any children on the street.


My 11 year old daughter has been taking it all fairly well considering until the last week or two. She has been less bothered with FaceTiming friends etc as I think the novelty has worn off now. Last night, about an hour after she went to bed, she came down in floods of tears and really upset. She couldn’t really explain what she was upset about. All she could say when we asked her what she’s worried about was “The World”. She must be overhearing us talking about what we feel is coming and the less than sunny outlook we currently have and taking some of this on board. If we as adults don’t know what the hell is going to happen or what to do about it, then what chance do the kids have
