Immigration minister should do his job and stop the invasion

Dear Editor

I have emailed Robert Jenrick to tell him that it’s weak politicians such as he who are making this country ungovernable and diminishing public respect for MPs. I told him to resign the whip and join the Labour Party or the Liberal Democrats. I also told him to do his job as Immigration Minister and stop the illegal invasion, itself a criminal act, of people who are on the make and entering the country uninvited. I told him to be less concerned about candid language and to address the actual problem the words represent.  I told him to seal off the channel with Navy warships to turn the boats back to France, and much more.

With idiots like him populating the Conservative party, we don’t need an Opposition.

A campaign is needed to advise people against voting Tory or Labour but to support emerging challenger parties. Where are the Reform and SDP voices? A prime time for them to make progress.

Many migrants are coming here to commit crime

Dear Editor,

How do penniless people finance expensive journeys of migration to another country? Three hundred years ago, penniless Britons became indentured servants of merchants and gentlemen to pay their way to the New World. Today young Albanian men and women are making equivalent arrangements with brutal gangsters.

All of this makes the fact that over 10,000 young Albanian males have crossed the Channel in dinghies this year very concerning. No doubt most of those young men have not thought through their deals with the devil, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that they will end up involved in organised crime, whether growing cannabis, as thugs, or in some other illegal activity.

Many of the female migrants face a worse fate of modern slavery in the sex trade. 

A moment’s thought would tell you that we cannot legalise this vast movement of people to the UK, because the demand is in effect infinite and our infrastructure and public services are failing to cope with the people already living here.

The Home Secretary Suella Braverman is right to describe the tens of thousands crossing the Channel in dinghies as an invasion, and to seek to stop them coming.

Covid vaccine injury: Tory MPs who couldn’t care less (1)

Dear Kathy and TCW team,

I emailed my Conservative MP (Craig Williams, Montgomeryshire) the day before the debate for a public inquiry into Covid-19 vaccine safety urging him to attend and support such an important inquiry. I was so exasperated by the response I received today that I had to forward it on to TCW to show that not only is the cabinet full of useless MPs, the country is completely full of useless MPs too.

I was going to reply to him with data and studies that contradict his lazy lack of effort view, but I think it will just be a waste of time. Maybe he should subscribe to TCW and get the excellent daily articles to open his eyes to what is actually happening in the world.

Glenn

This is Craig Williams’s email to me:

Dear Glenn,

Thank you for your email to me. Unfortunately I was unable to attend the Westminster Hall debate on 24th October due to prior engagements within Parliament.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) continuously monitors the safety of vaccines through a variety of methods, including, most notably, the Yellow Card scheme. The Yellow Card scheme is the UK system for collecting and monitoring information on safety concerns including suspected side effects or adverse incidents involving medicines and medical devices, such as the Covid-19 vaccines.

Reports received by the Yellow Card scheme are individually assessed and cumulative information is regularly reviewed and published online. Any emerging evidence relating to possible risks associated with vaccines and medicines is carefully reviewed and, if appropriate, regulatory action would be taken if any serious risks were confirmed.

Data published by the MHRA, shows that the safety of the approved vaccines is high: the vast majority of reported side effects are mild and short lasting, such as a sore arm and fatigue, which is a normal immune response to vaccines. The benefits of having the vaccine far outweigh the risks. 

The Government has commissioned a public inquiry into the Covid-19 pandemic and has no plans for a separate inquiry on vaccine safety. The MHRA is carefully monitoring any reports of adverse drug reactions. I will continue to follow this issue closely.

Kind regards,

Craig

Covid vaccine injury: Tory MPs who couldn’t care less (2)

Dear Kathy,

You kindly published my letter last weekend. For your reference and for the purpose of keeping a record of responses from MPs, I thought I would forward to you the latest response from my MP following my emailing him.

You will see how my Conservative MP Simon Clarke views us; the accusation of aggressive behaviour aimed at my husband is simply that we have challenging Mr Clarke in writing and face to face about the atrocities that have been perpetrated by the British Government and the opposition party. 

The level of evil in our politicians is off the scale and it is crystal clear that those injured and bereaved from Covid injections will get no meaningful help whatsoever. It is an absolute disgrace and outrage and I struggle to see how on earth our MPs will ever be brought to justice.  

Like Laura Perrins, we are practising Catholics and we really appreciate Laura reporting on the truth about what is happening in the Catholic Church. Tragically, the Catholic Church authorities like the Church of England authorities, in the very early days of this crisis, gave their full moral authority to the British Government and the Globalists to carry out the atrocities that we are living through. We are living in very dark times indeed.

This is my email to my MP, Simon Clarke (Middlesbrough South & East Cleveland):

Dear Mr Clarke,

As one of your constituents, I am requesting an appointment to meet directly with you. I wish to appeal to you for assistance to help the many people who have suffered a Covid vaccine injury and who are in desperate need of help.  

You will be aware that your colleague Sir Christopher Chope has been leading the way to try to help the Covid vaccine injured and bereaved and you will know that a APPG meeting took place recently.  

I would like to meet with you to discuss the necessity of you helping the vaccine injured and bereaved people, who through no fault are in dire circumstances and who are not getting the help they so desperately need. 

Now that you are no longer in a Governmental position, you will have more time to be available for other very pressing matters. Please help Sir Christopher Chope, I understand there are around 64 supportive MPs, please add yourself to this number and help the covid vaccine injured and bereaved.

I look forward to your reply to arrange a meeting.

Bernadette Rodgers

This is Simon Clarke’s reply to me:

Dear Mrs Rodgers,

Thank you for your email. I politely request that neither youreself [sic] nor your husband attend my face to face surgeries. This request is in response to previous aggressive behaviour by your husband. I do not feel it is appropriate to ask my staff or fellow constituents to accept such behaviour. I therefore believe it is best for you to put any questions for me in writing.

 In terms of support for those suffering from vaccine related injury, let me begin by highlighting that any coronavirus vaccine that is approved has been through rigorous clinical trials and safety checks. I am proud that the UK has some of the highest safety standards in the world. Millions of people have been given a Covid-19 vaccine and reports of serious side effects, such as allergic reactions, have been very rare. 

The Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme (VDPS) was established in 1979, to help ease the burden on those individuals where, on very rare occasions, vaccination against certain diseases has caused severe disablement. Covid-19 was added to the scheme in 2020. The Scheme provides a one-off, tax-free, lump sum of £120,000 to those who have been found on the balance of probabilities to have been harmed by a vaccine listed under the Vaccine Damage Payment Act 1979. The VDPS is not a compensation scheme, but is intended to ease the present and future burdens of those suffering from severe vaccine damage, and their families. The scheme provides support in addition to that provided by Government to all those suffering from long term health conditions or disabilities.

All claims to the Vaccine Damage Payment Scheme are clinically assessed on a case-by-case basis. I understand that the first outcomes of Covid-19 related VDPS claims were communicated to claimants from June 2022. The processing of claims understandably had to wait for scientific evidence to reach a more settled position to better understand the potential relationship between the vaccines and certain adverse events, though I welcome news that this is now up and running for the small number of people affected.

This approach is in line with that taken by other comparable countries.

Yours sincerely,

Simon Clarke MP

The Sunday Times and the dismissal of democracy

Dear Editor

In response to the Sunday Times leader column of October 16, I submitted the following letter:

‘You advocate the defenestration of Liz Truss as Prime Minister, the installation of Rishi Sunak without a contest and the removal of voting rights for Conservative Party members. By any standard, this is dangerously anti-democratic rhetoric.’

Needless to say, my letter was not published. In their leader of October 30, the Sunday Times doubled down on their position, saying: ‘In choosing Rishi Sunak and doing so without a contest that would have involved the questionable verdict of the party’s membership . . . the Tories have a serious leader for serious times.’

I do not care if a newspaper is left wing or right wing. I am more than capable of distinguishing between fact and opinion. If the Sunday Times believe that the man who squandered £500billion of taxpayers’ money on dubious Covid measures is a serious leader, that is their absolute right. However, their refusal to accept a democratic decision, and to insult the electorate which made it, is deeply troubling. I have hitherto resisted joining in the so-called conspiracy theories that allude to control of our institutions by the IMF, WEF and other similar unaccountable and unelected bodies. I am no longer sure they are theories. The evidence appears overwhelming.

The PM’s decision whether to attend the COP27 junket should be his alone

Dear Editor

The yearly COP jamboree meetings and freebies, along with some speechifying and (mostly broken) promises to decarbonise, have taken place for a couple of decades or so.

Nothing useful for the planet’s future climate has resulted but the thousands of delegates and their hangers-on must be very pleased to enjoy the freebies at taxpayers’ expense. 

Their travel from all four corners of the globe have emitted greenhouse gases galore, in conflict with their perceived necessity to economise on carbon dioxide (CO2) release.

Mr Rishi Sunak, our PM, has changed his mind over his attendance of COP27. It might have come from HM the King, fervent in Greenery, or from Tory MPs, disaffected by the PM’s evident manmade climate threat scepticism, threatening rebellion. 

In any case, political decision-making is based on complex, usually conflicting, motivations.

Nevertheless, where his responsibilities lie ought to be his prerogative and decision.

After all, his is the ‘hot seat’, whether it be in London or Arabia.
