Why did MPs not attend the excess deaths debate?

Dear Editor

Thank you for your excellent article reprinting the speech by Graham Stringer MP in the debate on excess deaths on April 18.

Am I right to assume that the only success of the debate, apart from creating a record on Hansard, is to persuade the Hallett Inquiry to bring forward their review of vaccine safety – module 4, which for some strange reason they had postponed until next year. 

In which case I totally agree with Graham Stringer that they are not technically competent to do so and have not demonstrated a completely unbiased approach. Furthermore, based on further comments by Angus Dalgleish, the withdrawal of these boosters is a matter of some urgency. A conclusion from the Hallett Inquiry could take years and even then may not be totally valid from a technical perspective.

Also both Andrew Bridgen and Graham Stringer reiterated that, and I quote ‘we need an anonymised account of excess deaths’. To release this information to pharmaceutical companies and not the public is clearly suspicious and unacceptable.

Finally I would like to understand why 635 highly paid members of Parliament who were elected to represent their constituents didn’t deem the debate of sufficient relevance to attend. I have little knowledge of how the parliamentary system works but would like reassurance that they were not in some way intimidated not to attend. I am not sure which scenario is worse: being compelled not to attend would pose many questions and undermine democracy, or just not bothering to turn up because they don’t care. The loud cheer from the public gallery clearly demonstrated what the electorate think.

If the MPs were coerced into not attending I would like to understand why and how that coercion worked across all the main parties. Would none of them have the decency to stand up and say this is not acceptable?

If we have to conclude they just don’t care then we, the great British public, must show them that we do care by not voting for them at the next election.

Cold weather silences the climate alarmists

Dear Editor

I notice that during the recent cold weather, which can be explained by a fixed weather (jet-stream driven) pattern with northerly winds, bringing with them polar air and even Arctic mesoscale depressions, the climate alarmists at the BBC and Met Office have been strangely quiet. Of course, the Arctic Ocean and Hudsons Bay are still ice-bound, as I noted at the end of March. One of our Nursing Sisters has returned from a fortnight in the Austrian Alps, where the first week was fine, but the second had persistent snow.  Perhaps the Alpine glaciers won’t be disappearing that quickly this year? Not that this ‘off-message’ situation would be reported.

Dear Editor

For the first time ever I spotted a photo of Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater in the press and they were NOT smiling. Could it possibly be that First Minister Humza Yousaf had told them in advance that the Bute House Agreement had run its course and he would announce that the SNP would now operate as a minority administration? Suddenly they realised that their ministerial gravy train had hit the buffers and instead of salaries of £94,821 each they would have to exist on £67,662 which is still far too much for their obvious and proven lack of any talent.

Centuries of penury for Net Zero

Dear Editor

The Daily Telegraph reported that the switch to green energy could add £29billion pa to household bills, or £290billion over ten years, just for upgrading the grid. 

At that rate it would take over 100 years to pay off the £trillion estimated by National Grid to decarbonise the grid. If you add the Net Zero cost of industry and transport etc, that could easily extend to 200 years.

Burn the Radio Times

Dear Editor,

John Ellwood is absolutely right about what to do at the next so called Earth Day. Although I would strongly advise starting on the meat-based diet as soon as possible for your own health as well as the future of our farming community. As all informed persons know that is how we, mankind, got this far and got this bright. Well, most of us did.

I would add this advice – burn the current Radio Times. Those who still use printed words to guide them through the minefield of television propaganda cautiously rely on the Radio Times. Of course we have to keep reminding ourselves that it isn’t a BBC publication, which is often difficult. You would certainly not get that impression from the current issue. Here under the banner of Earth Day we are being affronted with a scheme to raise someone called Chris Packham to the level of a deity. Complete with godlike photos, haloes and such. With support actors whom I cannot bear to name, who ought to know better. It seems Packham and these others haven’t had time, or just not bothered, to do their homework. But then perhaps we are asking too much of presenters to lower themselves with such trivialities as facts. Attenborough skipped that stage long ago. 

Continuing to claim that climate change is being brought on by human activity is simply arrogant nonsense and most thinking people appreciate that now. Clearly not Mr Packham.
