Ring-ring . . . ring-ring . . .
‘Hello? . . . Yes, speaking . . . Excellent! I’ve been looking forward to your call . . . Not many people say that? How odd . . . Anyway, if you would just let me say a few words before you read out your script . . .
‘As an intelligent person employed by the medical establishment you cannot possibly avoid knowing that the death rate for Covid-19 is extremely low, not much different from seasonal flu (by the way, isn’t it strange that there hasn’t been any flu over the last two winters?) and that the annual mortality rate is only slightly outside normal statistical variation. It’s hardly the Black Death, is it?
‘You must be also aware that the vaccine does not prevent you from catching or passing on the illness. I know it is claimed that it reduces symptoms, but since you cannot run a control experiment to find out if an individual would be more or less ill with or without the vaccine, that is really a matter of conjecture.
‘You must also be aware that the vaccine is very much in the experimental phase and that serious side effects including death have come to light with mass vaccination. You can’t rule out more side effects turning up in years to come.
‘You must also be aware that many medical professionals, who might be expected to be clued up about any problems with the vaccine, have refused it, to the extent that they are to be threatened with losing their jobs if they do not cave in.
‘Yet knowing all this you are still taking money to try to harass and terrorise me into having a product put into my body which at the very least is useless and which is proved to be harmful to some. You should be ashamed of yourself.
‘Thanks for calling, goodbye.’
