Today’s talking point


THE Sunday Times’s main headline yesterday was this:

NHS draws up vaccine plan for schoolchildren

Secondary pupils may be offered single jab

The story said: ‘Health officials are drawing up plans to offer the Pfizer vaccine to secondary school pupils from September. “Core planning scenario” documents compiled by NHS officials include the offer of a single dose to children aged 12 and over when the new school year starts . . .

Can such high-profile morally neutral reportage of something so profoundly controversial and questionable – and to many people seriously frightening – possibly be acceptable?

Isn’t it tantamount to reporting without comment that the Government is drawing up plans for a national scientific experiment on children? 

Do the Times newspapers deserve to be boycotted just as the BBC deserves to be defunded? 

Feel fee to discuss this or anything else on your mind.
