I woke up to more press coverage of the measles vaccine today. The gist of the stories, which have been appearing in our papers every day for nearly three weeks, is that the World Health Organisation (WHO) is really worried about the decline in measles vaccine uptake. You've been following this right? UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has gone from demanding that Social media firms delete anti-vaxxers (that was two weeks ago), to confirming that he will not rule out introducing mandatory vaccination for the UK's children. Hancock declared that those of us who question vaccine safety "have blood on our hands." Nice guy. Not a peep from the press. I won't bore you with my explanation of so called herd immunity.
You know as well as I do that it is junk science. 82,500 people contracted measles in Europe in 2018. There were 72 deaths, meaning that 0.087272% of those afflicted by the virus expired. Europe's current population is over 740 million people. The WHO claims that the unvaccinated are a threat to the immunocompromised. Immunocompromised folks have a faulty immune system. The WHO tells monstrous lies that go unchallenged in the press like that 1 in 20 children who contract measles get pneumonia. Liars. They tell horror stories of brain swelling and convulsions in many measles afflicted children. Liars. They lie and they get away with it again and again. The parade of brainless beauties who present the daily news shows never think to ask them for proof.
If like me you are over 40, you'll remember that everybody got the measles when you were young. We all got it. Every kid had it. Most of us were thrown on top of a child who had it, so that we could get it out of the way. Somewhere in the world a millennial has read that last sentence and keeled over. Yes measles parties were really a thing, same goes for chicken pox. Rather than shun a sick kid, parents would phone one another and organise a play date. Do you remember children getting pneumonia, encephalitis or dying? No you don't remember that because it didn't happen. They got a rash, maybe a fever and felt uncomfortable for a week or so. The GP's of yesteryear believed in exposing your children to these viruses. They knew that it helped the body to build a natural defence system. When confronted with this fact, modern doctors smile smugly and tell you that there have been advances in medicine.
Advances in medicine, really? The oft-mentioned future Mrs. Allen visited her GP last week. She's not been sleeping well, is overworked and a little stressed. She's lost weight too, not much mind, just a little. Her NHS doctor spent 5 minutes with her, didn't weigh her, didn't carry out a blood test and after five minutes, sent her on her way. Advances in medicine? My doctor back in Waterford, who is in her eighties and has been practising medicine for decades, spends at least 45 minutes with her patients, drinks tea with them, talks to them and tries to get to the root of their problems. Good luck trying to get a prescription out of her. The pharma reps must hate her. She's a dying breed. Today, they tap a keyboard, wait for a result, give you a kick on the arse and a lollipop and send you on your way with a prescription. Five minutes tops.
There are targets to be met remember. Advances in medicine? Are you shitting me? I have not exaggerated Caroline's surgery visit. That's how it happened. Didn't even weigh her. She was offered a prescription for a mild antidepressant. She declined and left.
We are rushing headlong into this Dystopian future I keep banging on and on about on the radio show. Who'd have believed that we would ever reach a time when a politician could threaten the nations families with compulsory vaccination? Well we've arrived now eh? And what of the consequences for those who resist? Will they stop at kicking the kids out of school? Course not, they'll want to remove the child from his/her parents on the grounds that they are unfit. Academics and parents In Ireland have been calling parents of unvaccinated kids "child abusers." That'll catch on here too. The odds against your child dying, getting pneumonia or encephalitis are astronomical. It's odds on however, that the unvaccinated child will be stronger, healthier and more active as they develop. So why would you want to compromise a healthy immune system with a toxic tidal wave of pus and shit that they DO NOT need? Why indeed.
