Hysteria over the rapid roll-out of the vaccination programme neglects to mention the reality that those vaccinated so far have only received just the initial dose with a prolonged wait for their booster jab. This has allowed this corrupt Tory Government to tout the high numbers of people in the most vulnerable group it has managed to vaccinate in record time, now even beating their own deadline. It’s a similar trick as counting gloves separately rather than by the pair, it gives a false impression of their tremendous accomplishment to be hailed by the media at a critical time that masks the grim reality of our soaring death toll now exceeding the 100,000 mark. Ignoring the possibility of any delays in the supply chain, the extension of the gap between doses eliminates any potential leeway if problems arise, hence the aggressive policy of vaccine nationalism that sparked a row with the EU. Obscuring the impact of the unnecessary deaths is perverse, but other potential pitfalls in the Government’s strategy aren’t making headlines.

At the beginning of February few were questioning this over-egging of the vaccine roll out success story. In the London Economic Article entitled, “Britain’s reaction to the first sign of competence in government is scary,” Jack Peat reminds us that, “New Zealand has managed to keep their Covid death rate down to just 25 because their government acted with competence from the start.” He says, “The Conservatives enjoyed a vaccine boost in the polls this week, turning a four point deficit into a three point lead over the Labour Party. A year on from the outbreak of a pandemic that has wreaked havoc across the nation and all has been forgotten, with the government’s vaccination programme seemingly enough to make amends for all that has gone wrong. This weekend close to one in every 60 adults in the country were vaccinated against the deadly virus, a proud Matt Hancock trumpeted last night. They may even hit their target of vaccinating the most vulnerable by February 15th, ‘with a fair wind’, as Boris Johnson likes to say.” Or, in this old sea dog’s nautical terms, he could suffer a dangerous broach in the massive following seas!

Peat remarks that, “It is almost as if for the first time since the pandemic started we had a semi-competent government in charge, and it has caught many of us by surprise. That’s what they are supposed to do. The scary part about watching people’s reaction to the vaccination response is seeing how many have forgot that it is the job of the government to make this stuff happen. With the strength of our national health service, the vigour of our great scientific minds and the financial might of the British state they need only coordinate the vast resources at their disposal to make it work. The vaccination ‘success’ is, in reality, simply competence, and I hardly think we should laud a ruling party overly for that. Especially when you compare it to places where this has been happening all along.” Following the Covert 2019 Rigged Election that burdened us with this Tory Sovereign Dictatorship we have suffered the consequences of multiple incompetent decisions; a full Investigation of that result could oust this corrupt Tory cabal!

New Zealand is cautiously emerging from the Covid crisis relatively unscathed. In New Zealand, for example, Peat reports on how, “They closed the borders, went straight into lockdown and had a functioning test and trace system as soon as the first cases were recorded. Juxtaposed to the UK where border restrictions are still not fully in place and the test and trace system has been a laughing stock and you get a picture of what true competence really looks like. Fortunately for us we don’t even have to look that far any more for case studies in how it should be done. Yesterday our very own Isle of Man announced it was ‘back to normal’ as pubs, schools and businesses reopened. They too had enforced a strict lockdown and closed their borders and were led decisively throughout. One person said their mother had refused a vaccine because ‘there are people in the world who need it more’ than her. Pressed on who she was referring to she said those in the UK. ‘There is a much higher risk over there’.”

Few in the Mainstream Media are really putting the Government’s shambolic decisions under robust scrutiny. In the Byline Times Article entitled, “The UK’s World-Beating COVID Vaccination Rollout Behind the Flag Waving,” Martin Rodgers, “calls on journalists to scrutinise the Government’s vaccine programme to ensure defeat isn’t snatched from the jaws of victory.” He says, “The UK’s embattled Conservative Government is taking succour from a barnstorming roll-out of almost 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses in January, powered from an aggressive purchasing and emergency licensing strategy. Indeed, in recent opinion polls, the Tories had moved back into a four-point lead over Labour, a mere week after Boris Johnson soberly announced the milestone of 100,000 COVID-19 deaths to the nation. However, as the vaccinations accolades pour in, including from Labour leader Keir Starmer and traditional press critics of the Government’s approach, the scrutiny of what lies beneath the headlines has started to wane.”

Rodgers says that, “In a nation bruised and battered by its 12-month COVID nightmare, slowly awakening to the reality of its divorce from the EU, and where political discourse is held in increasingly binary and aggressive terms, the tendency to seek solace in good news seems overwhelming. Looking under the lid of the UK’s vaccination programme, and beyond its shores to global equivalents, serious questions lurk, that if not addressed with urgency, could see vaccination becoming another catastrophic failure of this Government’s pandemic response, along with PPE procurement and outsourcing. The Vaccines the UK has aggressively pre-ordered vaccines, with a total seven candidates secured covering 357 million doses for its 60 million citizens. This strategy has been conducted on the basis that not all candidates will be successful or pass approval. Of those, two have been granted emergency approval and are being used.”

Rodgers reports that the, “Pfizer/BioNTech, Has trial efficacy of 90%, and a dosing interval of 21 days. The UK Government advises a three-to-12-week dosing interval. AstraZeneca/Oxford has trial efficacy of 60% and a dosing interval of three weeks. The UK Government advises a three-to-12-week dosing interval. The UK has ordered 100 million doses of the AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccine, and 40 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine. As of 1 February the UK announced that 9.7 million people had received a first vaccine dose, with just under half a million having received second doses and thus being vaccinated. UK-wide and region-specific data on which vaccines have been used on which age-groups, and on the dosing interval for second doses, are outside of the public domain. We have a perverse scenario whereby the more vulnerable are being issued with the weaker AZ vaccine on the basis of its ability to be easily distributed, as opposed to clinical best practice.”

Rodgers explains that, “Crucially, the UK Government does not break down its vaccine delivery statistics by manufacturer. Despite lower efficacy, AZ is still a vital tool in the fight against COVID-19, given its much lower price per dose, and the fact that, unlike the Pfizer vaccine, it does not need to be stored at -80 degrees. However, some controversy has surrounded the design of the AZ study, as data on subjects aged 65 and over is sketchy at best. Coupled with inconsistencies and gaps in the results from the Anglo-Swedish first-time vaccine producer, this has led to a tardiness in approval from other countries, most notably the USA, whose agency is running a much larger trial prior to granting approval.”

Rodgers reports that, “The EU, during last week’s vaccine furore, approved the vaccine across its member states, with a note on untested efficacy among those aged 65 and over. The German national regulator went further, advising against its use in seniors, and other member states, including France and Spain, have expressed similar reservations. With the bloc recently securing an enhanced 600 million dose order from Pfizer in 2021, it is questionable to what degree AZ will figure in its over 65 cohort. The UK has not made such a distinction between vaccine flavours, basing the bulk of its roll-out on getting the more plentiful AZ doses into arms the length and breadth of the country. Given the ease of storage and distribution of AZ, this has meant a bias towards GP surgeries, local health centres, and indeed care homes, with Pfizer doled out at volume in national vaccination centres.”

Rodgers says that, “Again, the national breakdown is not published, but Northern Ireland may be used as a reasonable barometer, and here the Health Minister, Robin Swan, has stated: ‘Those aged 70 and over are receiving the AstraZeneca jab from their GPs while those aged 65 and over are invited to book an appointment at one of seven regional vaccination centres for the Pfizer vaccination.’ Hence, we have a perverse scenario whereby the more vulnerable are being issued with the weaker AZ vaccine on the basis of its ability to be easily distributed, as opposed to clinical best practice.” Rodgers says that the, “AZ trial data, confused as it is, does appear to support a delay in dosage intervals. Hence the major concern is around the UK’s decision to override Pfizer’s instructions for a 21-day gap between doses and to opt for an interval of up to 12 weeks. In announcing this delay for Pfizer vaccine recipients, the UK took a dramatic public health decision, reversing its initial schedule after some had received first doses.”

According to Rodgers, “Ministers went even further, giving the NHS licence to further extend the delay if operational reasons dictated, and to reserve the right to deliver a second dose of a different vaccine if duplication of the first was not possible (although this is not recommended). The new schedule represents the longest dosing delay of any country in the world, and was met with consternation from the British Medical Association, which requested that it be halved to six weeks at the very most. Pfizer itself simply stated that departure from the tested regime is not recommended.” Other countries are cautiously watching and waiting as the UK population is turned into a giant petri dish under a nationwide randomized trial that the first vaccine recipients did not give their ‘informed concent’ to participate in due to the schedule change after they received their first dose. I believe a violation of this informed consent may well be illegal and Pfizer will claim it is an ‘off label’ administration of their two dose regimen.

Rodgers reports that, “Worryingly, recent field data from Israel, which is leading the world in roll-out with 75% of its population having received at least one dose, suggests that the UK Government’s figure is a hopeful projection.’ In response to the Israeli data, the UK’s chief scientific advisor Patrick Vallance, in an interview with Sky News, said, ‘We know that when you get into real world practice, things are seldom quite as good as clinical trials. I don’t know exactly what data Israel are looking at, but we need to look at this carefully.’ Vallance’s bland assessment could be seen as a typical English understatement, or simply evading a difficult question on live television, but it is not surprising that he did not engage further on the subject. For, as chief scientific advisor, he will have been a party to the Government’s decision.”

Rodgers raises the issue of our neglected, “Care Homes and a Disunited Kingdom.” He says that, “The UK Government does not publish which vaccines have been delivered in what setting and at what interval, and so it is impossible to obtain a national picture of the vaccination situation in care homes. What we can ascertain, again using Northern Ireland as a barometer where the approach has been published, is that there are substantial differences across the four regions, and in all likelihood also within the regions. Following the UK-wide decision on 30 December to delay second doses, the Northern Ireland chief medical officer stated the following: ‘Care home residents and staff in NI will get their second doses within the original three-week period.’ One month later, this objective has been met almost in full, with the vast majority of care home residents and staff receiving both doses of the Pfizer vaccine in and around 21-days.”

Rodgers reports that, “Tragically, England’s sprawling privately-run care home network, which bore the brunt of the disastrous first wave of the pandemic, appears to have suffered once again. Whereas the government touts that all care home resident have been offered vaccines, the fact is that this only covers outbreak-free homes. Furthermore, only 50% of staff have been vaccinated, and there appears to be no official figures on Pfizer versus AZ dosage, though anecdotal evidence suggests that both are deployed. Predictably, the death toll continues to rise even as England’s second wave appears to be finally plateauing. Despite this harrowing picture, central government has doubled down, issuing a statement on 1 February refusing to budge on the 12-week gap between care home doses in England. It seems that no group of people is too at risk or vulnerable, or has suffered enough death or loss so as to be exempt from the Government’s one-size-fits-all mantra.” The Tory Sovereign Dictatorship are playing a sick game of Russian Roulette with their expendable UK citizens!

Rodgers focuses on the danger of, “Mutations and ‘Leaky Vaccines’,” saying that, “In recent months, it is mutations of COVID-19 that have prompted most concern worldwide, with notable strains deriving from Brazil, England, and South Africa. As of right now, England has implemented a door-to-door Wuhan-style contact tracing response to the South African strain across eight regions, in a marked departure from the distant and largely ineffective outsourced Test and Trace infrastructure that has been synonymous with the country’s failure to manage the pandemic. Some scientists have expressed concerns that the UK’s delayed dosage schedule, when applied against this rapidly evolving disease, increases the chances of new and potentially more infectious strains evolving. Indeed, the less perfect a vaccine is, the greater the chance of the virus surviving and mutating.” This is without doubt the biggest unquantified risk this Tory Government is willing to take with its expendable population.

Rodgers points out that, “Research to date is far from conclusive, however one 2015 study on chickens seemed to suggest that this is the case. While all the chickens in the unvaccinated group died, the vaccinated chickens survived for 30 days or more, “
‘allowing the virus to be transmitted to other birds housed within the same confines. These vaccines also allow the virulent virus to continue evolving precisely because they allow the vaccinated individuals, and therefore themselves, to survive.’ Whether or not this effect is repeated in a human-hosted coronavirus remains to be seen, yet it is difficult to read the above without thinking of mutations to date. This is relevant in particular to the scenario in care homes in England, where groups of partially vaccinated residents mix with staff who may or may not have been vaccinated, or received different vaccines.”
These risks aren’t worth taking!

Rodgers reports on, “Keeping Up with the Virus,” saying that, “A second concern, pertaining to mutations, is the ability of vaccine manufacturers to respond to virus mutations. In this respect, Pfizer has expressed confidence in the ability of its mRNA vaccine to work against the two causing most concern at present, the South African and UK strains, and has expressed as much on its website. The AstraZeneca/Oxford team has been much more circumspect, with John Bell, Head of Medicine at Oxford University. stressing on Times Radio that the South African strain has ‘really pretty substantial changes’. The AZ/Oxford team has further spoken of the need to modify its virus platform and potentially to develop new vaccines. With the UK in particular spooked by the South African variant, having majority-dosed with AZ, there is a question of whether a traditional, as opposed to mRNA-based vaccine, was appropriate for such a fast-moving coronavirus in the first place.”

Rodgers describes, “Flying the Vaccine Flag,” saying that, “Since the beginning of 2021, concerns over the UK’s vaccination strategy have largely been buried beneath an outpouring of national pride as the NHS, with military support, has put jabs in arms at the astonishing rate of 1.5 million per week. The Government-friendly broadcast news infrastructure has promoted the vaccine roll-out with gusto, Sky News has a live ticker of vaccines administered based on the daily figures, whereas the BBC has frequently led on the story, and has examined the case studies of various individuals. In the worst month by far of the pandemic, with more than 1,000 daily deaths expected to be logged on average, and a daily case rate hitting 50,000 at worst, it was the vaccine rollout and not the new level of carnage that made headlines.”

Rodgers reports on how, “Britain’s largely right-wing print media predictably led the charge on the good-news vaccine front, and was afforded an unmissable opportunity when the EU suggested it would have to restrict the supply of vaccines to the UK. When the EU ultimately sought compromise, the Daily Mail compared the UK’s victory to the Falklands War campaign. Amidst the jingoism, a change in tone could also be noted in the reporting of the traditionally pro-EU and left-leaning Guardian. Previously questioning of all aspects of the Government’s response, its sister paper the Observer ran a series of articles in defence of the regime and even questioning the BMA, the trade union representing frontline staff.” While we cannot trust our UK Media to tell us the truth and the Tory Government is only interested in positive PR spin to detract from their aggressive corrupt profiteering, we all remain vulnerable and the Covid crisis can continue being used as a tool to control, exploit and impoverish us.

“Herd Immunity II, On 13 January, it was reported by Byline Times that Dr Mary Ramsay, head of immunisation at Public Health England, said in front of the UK parliamentary committee that the country would need to ‘allow the disease to circulate in younger people where it’s not causing much harm’ while protecting ‘the people who are really vulnerable’, if the vaccine fails to sufficiently slow or prevent COVID-19 transmission. Whereas herd immunity is the goal of any immunisation programme, this apparent nod to the discredited Great Barrington Declaration approach, in essence allowing COVID-19 to spread while in theory protecting vulnerable population categories, was met with surprise from leading epidemiologists. Ramsay went further, alluding to another false doctrine, conflation of COVID-19 with the flu. ‘That may be the situation that we are going to, like we are with flu where we accept that a lot of people get flu but we protect those who are most vulnerable. That may be the outcome,’ she said.”

Rodgers warns us that, “As we know, however, COVID-19 is not flu. Rather, it is a fast-developing RNA virus, which has spawned numerous contagious and quite possibly more deadly variants. Government policy decisions from 30 December, the date of emergency AZ approval, appear to support this herd immunity at-all-costs narrative. At best the UK approach may not deliver the desired results as rapidly as intended, but at worst could reap a host of unintended consequences, both in immunological and political terms. But all is not lost. More people have received vaccines in the UK than anywhere else on earth, and the vaccines do afford some protection. This can only be good. But in order to ensure that the programme succeeds, the Fourth Estate needs to stop flag-waving, and instead redouble its efforts to scrutinise the Government.” As the British people wait patiently hoping that the deadly risks this corrupt Tory Government forced us to take will not cost more lives, the best answer is to remove them from office! DO NOT MOVE ON!
