Reading the BBC today I was astounded to see the following:
UK swine flu deaths jump to 29
Twenty-nine people have now died in the UK after contracting swine flu, up from 17 on Monday, the government has said.
It comes as the number of new cases hit 55,000 last week and the NHS has seen a surge in calls and consultations.
29 out of 55,000, that's better odds than from seasonal flu! All but TWO of these deaths were in individuals with serious underlying health issues.
In fact several of these victims died of natural causes, but when tested had swine flu. Not surprising seeing as some were admited to hospital, then
This has angered me to the point I had to try and do something.
I found a website called Write to Them
that allows you to write to your politicians, I wrote the following:
Dear Jim Knight,
I am deeply concerned as one of your constituents regarding the current Swine Flu Pandemic. This matter needs to brought to the attention of the House
of Commons as a matter of urgency.
My issues are as follows:
-The constant and concerted effort by this government, public health officials and the media in 'hyping' up this issue and over exaggerating the
severity of this flu pandemic.
-The intentional effort by the government, health officials and media to attribute deaths to the swine flu that are unrelated. When someone dies
'WITH' swine flu, your government and the media report 'OF' swine flu. All but two of the 'victims of swine flu in the media have had serious
underlying medical issues, and died of causes unrelated to the flu.
-The ease at which NHS doctors are prescribing Tamiflu and other antiviral drugs that, if not used correctly will result in the virus becoming
'immune' to its effects, and result in a population more at risk from this flu. Doctors are prescribing Tamiflu after phone diagnoses which is
-The obvious rushed nature of efforts to create a vaccine that cannot, due to the time frame involved be clinically tested sufficiently, in order to
determine side affects of said vaccine.
-The plans by government and health officials to make the vaccine compulsory, even though a large proportion of the population has not been convinced
of the severity of the flu nor the safety of any vaccine.
There are two scenarios here, either the flu is a graver danger to mankind(hence all the fuss) but you haven't been truthful about it. OR the swine
flu is not serious and there is a deliberate attempt to unsettle and panic the public into taking an unsafe vaccine that will do immeasurable damage
to our children and the public in general.
If you care in any way about your constituents and your own family, you should demonstrate this by asking some serious questions of our PM.
I will keep you all informed of any responses from this MP. I have used this service before and he did reply.
I am seriously getting sick of this swine flu crap. Either it's gonna hit us bad, or it's a plot to push a dodgy vaccine, it cannot be both. Hang on
a minute, maybe it could!
Either way, we all need to get in touch with Councillors, MPs. Senators and Govenors and ask some serious questions. Maybe try emailing news papers
and media outlets too.
If enough of us make some noise, we may get some answers.
All the best my fellow ATSers.
For those of you who want to deny ignorance:
Contact Your Government (Canada)
Senators of the 111th Congress
Contact Your State Governor
Contact your Councillors, MP, MEPs, MSPs (UK)
