The Health Secretary Sajid Javid told SKY News this morning that NHS staff can expect to be told to get vaccinated against covid-19 or they will lose their jobs. It is already compulsory for people working in the care sector. Speaking to SKY’s Kay Burley, Javid said:
“In the NHS we are thinking of doing the same thing…..It’s about doing the right thing. I think that if we didn’t do this, just think about that for a second.
You would basically have people that are working in the NHS that haven’t got vaccinated when they could have. Remember, people in the NHS and care were rightly offered the vaccines right at the start when we first had vaccines.
So if they haven’t got vaccinated by now, then there is an issue there about patient safety.”
That’s nonsense of course. Adam Finn of the Joint Committee On Vaccination & Immunisation (JCVI) told SKY News yesterday, what he told BBC Breakfast last week, that is, the jabs are modestly successful at preventing infection and reducing transmission.
Those who have not been jabbed are of no danger whatsoever to the jabbed themselves. It’s tyranny. I sound like a broken record. I am boring myself. We are here now. We have reached that place that researchers, writers and academics were telling me about, as far back as 2009.
As for the media? Kay Burley is a rotten, wretched, rancid wench. A nodding dog would have done a better job this morning.
In my time in commercial radio, even a junior reporter would have asked Javid:
“You can’t be serious? You’re 40,000 nurses down already. You need tens of thousands of doctors. Third world countries have more hospital beds per capita than we do, and you’re going to force more people out of their jobs by mandating a jab that they do not need? You’ll destroy what’s left of the NHS! Are you nuts?”
