IT’S a beautiful, sunny autumn day, and the Turners are out for a walk with the dogs around Bosworth battlefield to celebrate a family birthday.
Homeward bound and sparing no expense, we opt for the high life with lunch at McDonald’s. As we approach, we spy a large group of placard-wavers on the main A5 Hinckley roundabout. My inner journalist activated, I park the car and walk over for a chat.
It turns out that these folks are protesting against the experimental gene therapy vaccination of children. A man hands me an information pack. ‘Talk to Clare,’ he says. Clare approaches and explains: ‘We are the Tribe of Leicestershire. It came about through the A Stand in the Park groups. A group of us went around the county connecting with all the Stand in the Parks in Leicestershire, and we built this big group you can see today. There’s maybe a dozen around the county – Market Harborough, Ashby – we’ve got a network now, connected with these guys in Nuneaton, which is why we’re here today.’
Basically, she explains, ‘It’s just raising awareness, giving the other side that the mainstream media isn’t. It’s classed as misinformation – it really isn’t – all the information we’re using today is coming from the MHRA Yellow Card scheme report here and the government website.’
Clare is concerned: ‘The amount of people we’ve spoken to who aren’t even aware of the Yellow Card scheme, or they’ve not been told about the adverse reactions. We know for a fact there’s only between one and ten per cent of side-effect cases that have been reported. I recently connected with a young man who ended up in hospital with myocarditis following his second jab. He wasn’t aware of the Yellow Card scheme or how to report his reactions. So I gave him the information and he said he was really grateful and reported it.’
Clare, a working mum of two, doesn’t agree that jabbing healthy children is required.
I ask if they’re on Telegram. ‘Yes, we are’ she says, ‘We call ourselves the Tribe of Leicestershire, we’ve got over 700 members, and have a Pavement Protest page where we post where we’ll be over the next few weeks.’
I’m not easily impressed, but this wonderful lady and the ToL bowl me over today. ‘Clare, you’re a hero. Congratulations, keep the faith. Keep it going, God bless you.’ I turn away for chips, chicken nuggets and a Big Mac, leaving them at the roundabout, many horns honking in support.
I’ve written a couple of pieces for TCW over the last fortnight to suggest a Charter for Liberation from Tyranny and the creation of a British version of Bannon’s War Room. The ToL are the real action heroes for this movement, seemingly fed by the ‘Stand in the Park’ grass roots.
This is precisely the kind of ‘Direct Democracy – Local Action – National Impact’ needed to shift the status quo. Be encouraged. Despite the doomsters who inhabit the comment pages, this battle is far from lost and the tide may just be on the turn. Keep the faith. Don’t yield an inch.
