Arrogant complacency of the MHRA (Many Holidays, Remunerated Amply)

-

REGULAR readers may have wondered why there’s been a gap in publication of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) Yellow Card data on adverse reactions to the Covid vaccine.  

The answer is simple. The people there keep taking holidays. And they have just announced another: ‘Please note that over the Bank Holiday period the publication date of the coronavirus vaccine – weekly summary of Yellow Card reporting will differ from usual. The next publication will be on 12 May 2022 containing data up to 4 May 2022.’ 

So far, they’ve missed a week over Christmas, another over Easter and now there’s a week missing over the May Bank Holiday. No doubt the Jubilee will be the next excuse.  

This is despite a total salary bill of more than £3.4million, with ten of the agency’s senior staff paid more than £150,000 each per annum. Three more – CEO June Raine (on a cool £240,000), Chief Operating Officer Jon Fundry and Chief Medical Officer Dr Christian Schenieder – are raking in more than £200,000 apiece. 

Why, despite such generous remuneration and staffing, are they incapable of keeping their show on the road? Can’t they cover for each other? Hospitals, for all their faults, don’t close. People haven’t stopped dying from the Covid vaccines, nor have other adverse vaccine reactions drawn to a halt.  

The figures they’ve so graciously published this week (see below) prove that. A further 25 deaths since the MHRA’s March 25 report have, as usual, gone unremarked along with an additional 11,473 adverse reactions. 

Rather like the BBC, the unaccountable MHRA only answers letters under duress. It refuses to be open and transparent. Yet it is failing abysmally to provide the type of age and sex data breakdown that is essential to fully understand the risks of the Covid vaccines.   

To add insult to these injuries, when it stopped reporting over Easter, the critical weeks following the reckless April rollout of the vaccine to five to 11-year-olds, there was no data anyone could react to. 

The MHRA should have been on red alert for adverse reactions, given the catalogue of myocarditis reports in the 11 to 18 group of recent months. But no, it has not even bothered to break down the child numbers into the two separate age segments or into specific adverse events for either age cohort, as it does for adults, as though children were of less importance.  

I fear they are not planning to give us this critical information – yet they must have it. Again, just like the BBC, the MHRA is a law unto itself. Nor do its sources of funding add to one’s sense of confidence in them.  

The majority comes from the pharmaceutical industry through fees for licensing their products. It is made up by substantial tranche from the Department of Health and Social Care. A Freedom of Information request revealed a rather disturbing further ‘£3million current funding’ from the vaccine-obsessed Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It is not hard to see which way the wind blows. 

Below is the latest MHRA report breakdown. It is nothing to be cheerful about.
