I’m enjoying Prince Harry’s book – he should read it too

Dear Editor

Prince Harry’s book isn’t bad.

It’s as if Lee Child wrote a fictional account of Harry’s life.

He keeps talking about going to war. But all he did was sit in a room watching drone pictures, calling in air strikes.

Harry obviously hasn’t read his book though. At one stage, he talks about sneaking out past his sleeping body guard and walking through Paris. The streets of Paris are lined with French people, drinking coffee and eating croissants. That’s three big mistakes in one sentence: French people on the streets, drinking coffee at night, and eating croissants!

Good grief. Harry never went to war and the ghost writer never left America. At least he didn’t say there were men with bicycles and stripy shirts selling onions.

The TV version of Harry isn’t a patch on the book. They should have got Tom Cruise to play Harry. He could probably do the accent. The Harry they put on Netflix was OK but he was no Cumberbatch.

A way round the trans problem?

Dear Editor

I have written to Kwasi Kwarteng, MP for Spelthorne, seeking his help in promoting a proposal for changes to the Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill whereby a Gender Recognition Certificate (GRC) would be replaced with a certificate to the effect that the holder does not identify as their birth sex. The holder would retain their birth sex but could live ‘as if’ the opposite sex without ‘being’ the opposite sex, thus protecting the sex-based rights of women and girls.

This detailed proposal has been sent to Alister Jack, Secretary of State for Scotland, as an alternative approach for consideration in the possible invocation of a Section 35 Order to curtail the Bill.

I suggested to Kwasi that the debate was best thought of as one between sex and gender identity (i.e. reality versus fantasy), and ended my letter thus: ‘As the Labour Party seems to be believe human biology is a type of Meccano set enabling a pick-and-mix assembly of body parts to construct one of 100+ human identities, it is a good opportunity for the Conservatives to re-establish the reality of the binary and immutable nature of human sex.

‘I would remind you that the ideological capture of government and its institutions, the NHS, the Judiciary, the police force, universities and schools by Stonewall, Gendered Intelligence and GIRES happened on a Conservative watch. This is an ideology pursued for the benefit of less than 0.5 per cent of the UK population at the expense of the other 99.5 per cent. It cannot be allowed to continue.’

I await his response.

Kwasi Kwarteng MP did reply, but readers may feel from this excerpt from his response that he is in denial about the impacts on women and girls: ‘I note your concerns about the rights of women and girls, and I can assure you that I am fully committed to protecting women’s rights and freedoms. That is why I am pleased that the Government recognises the importance of the protection of single-sex spaces. The Equality Act makes it clear that providers have the right to restrict use of spaces on the basis of sex, and exclude transgender people, with or without a Gender Recognition Certificate, if this is justified. This position is unchanged since 2010 and I continue to believe it strikes the right balance.

‘The Equality Act also protects transgender people from discrimination. I am proud that the UK is a global leader in LGBT rights, and I believe that protecting transgender people from discrimination does not require the rights of others to be removed. I am determined that everyone in the UK should be free to live their lives and fulfil their potential regardless of their sex, gender identity, race or disability.’

The suspension of Andrew Bridgen (1)

Dear Editor

Re Andrew Bridgen MP: I remembered Naomi Wolf’s conversation with Mark Steyn on GB News about two months ago. She said that being Jewish she could get away with saying there were similarities between the Establishment’s policy with the Covid vaccine and the Nazis’ behaviour in the early ‘30s, including bringing experts on board to support their claims. She expressed herself very strongly and used the word ‘murder’, since in this theory the authorities knew there were a very large number of adverse reactions to the vaccine, even deaths, but they pressed on with the rollout.

 The suspension of Andrew Bridgen (2)

This is a reader’s letter to Simon Hart MP, Chief Whip, about the suspension of Andrew Bridgen, Conservative MP for North West Leicestershire.

Dear Mr Hart,

The people respect those who engage in discussion and who have the courage to talk about uncomfortable truths. 

Rather than silence the Hon Andrew Bridgen, perhaps you’d like to publicly discuss the VAERS data and the Yellow Card data on adverse events? The people (especially the vaccine-injured and bereaved) have a right to know the truth.

Censoring reality doesn’t end well for anyone.

This survey is child abuse

Dear Editor

There is a truly horrifying assumption underlying the surveying of schoolchildren as young as five in a Scottish primary school, Merkinch in Inverness, on whether they are gay. The essence of being gay is that you feel sexual attraction to members of your own sex. If you are incapable of feeling sexual attraction you simply can’t be gay, or for that matter straight.

Thus in asking a five-year-old whether they are gay, you are assuming that they are a sexual being capable of feeling sexual attraction to another person. That is a truly horrifying paedophilic assumption.

If you try to wriggle out the inevitable logic of this by saying that of course five-year-olds don’t feel sexual attraction and desire, but they may identify as gay, that leads to the question of whether you are grooming children for a future of same-sex relationships.

This children’s sex survey represents an egregious failure of safeguarding, or as it would have been expressed in an earlier saner age, a failure to protect the moral welfare of these children. It is no excuse that those responsible meant well or did not understand the implications of the questions. They should be subject to employment, professional and quite probably criminal sanctions.

Lonely Prince William

Dear Editor

Prince Harry has behaved horribly and must surely have no friends left, save for his new fair-weather Hollywood pals.

One must now look to Prince William and pity him. His will be a lonely reign, for unlike his grandmother and his father who were and are both surrounded by so many existing members of the wider family, a future King William may be left with a volatile brother across the Atlantic, and many other family members at an advanced age, or retired from public life.

Medical tyranny must be demolished

Dear Editor

Reading the account on Monday of vaccine-injured Duncan, a previously fit person reduced to a shadow of himself within hours of receiving an AstraZeneca vaccine, what was most searing was that his blinkered GP’s response was to talk him into having a second injection!

 Common sense guides us to avoid things that previously caused us harm. For medics, the precautionary principle is an obligation. Such callous disregard for the signals of harm suggests that sustaining a lie, individually or collectively, monopolises so much mental energy that it cuts us off from all the intuitive information our brain provides, as well as from our more noble instincts of protecting the injured; the empathetic response.


Charles Creighton MA, MD, described as the greatest medical scholar Britain produced in the 19th century, : ‘It is difficult to conceive what will be the excuse made for a century of cowpoxing; but it cannot be doubted that the practice will appear in as absurd a light to the common sense of
the twentieth century as blood-letting now does to us. Vaccination, however, differs from all previous errors of the faculty, in being maintained as the law of the land on the warrant of medical authority. That is the reason why the blow to professional credit can hardly help being severe, and why the efforts to ward it off have been, and will continue to be, so ingenious.’ 
Whilst Creighton was right in predicting that the methods used to prevent the professional discredit associated with a recognition that vaccination was not the panacea it was trumpeted to be, would be unrelenting and merciless, his belief that common sense would prevail in the twentieth century was clearly wrong.

Born in Aberdeenshire, Creighton studied medicine at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Vienna and Berlin. He dedicated a large part of his professional life to the study of epidemiology and wrote A History of Epidemics in Britain in two volumes which is regarded as a seminal work. Yet for the last 40 years of his life he was ostracised by the medical establishment because he dared to hold heterodox opinions on the benefit of vaccination.

It is conceivable that the sheer scale of egregious harm and inhumanity perpetrated by the ‘Covid State’ will finally bring down the tower, enabling a purging of the fraud, deceit and corruption that has sustained medical tyranny for far too long, and Creighton may well be vindicated in the 21st century.
