Ozymandias: Population Meltdown in Scotland as Additional Support Needs Rise by 600% in a Decade

image from en.wikipedia.orgby John Stone

I have been looking at Scotland’s 2017 special educational needs data, published last month amid zero publicity – these days we do not even have to “bury the bad news”. It just gets published on a government website somewhere and almost no one notices...except me and Anne Dachel. On 26 March 2018 I wrote to the British Medical Journal (and they published):

The (British) government must face up to the autism pandemic, and so must the RCPCH

It is perturbing not to get a response from Prof Viner and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, after my Rapid Response last week [1]. Since I wrote I have tracked down the figures for Scottish schools for 2017 (the disability numbers were published earlier this month, though not reported in the media). The number of children with an autism diagnosis in Scottish schools rose by 11.5% in one year. Between September 2016 and 2017 one year in the fifteen year rolling cohort departed, another arrived, and the total number of children with diagnosed autism increased by 1,550: the incidence of autism in Scottish schools went up from 1 child in 51 (684,415/13,423) to 1 child in 46 (688, 959/14,973) [1,2]. But the rate among younger children will be far higher. In 2005 the Department of Health gave a figure of 1 child in 100 [1].

At what point does this catastrophic phenomenon even get to be acknowledged? People talk about pandemics of infectious disease, but what do they think this is?

[1] John Stone, 'NHS must prioritise health of children and young people -what about autism?', 19 March 2018

[2] Tables 1.1 and 1.8

Naturally, no one answered. A friend posed me the question whether there could be substitution involved? Well it does not look like this is the main explanation. Here is the data (table 1.5)  for pupils with additional support needs comparing 2017 with 2007:

2007 Primary School  4.4% (16, 478)

2017 Primary School 23.5% (94,125)

2007 Secondary         4.3%  (13, 355)

2017 Secondary         29.3% (82,712)

Averaged out this is a present rate of 26.6% for pupils with additional support needs: a rise of 534% for primary education, and 681% for secondary education in ten years. Since this is a table presumably the criteria should be consistent. And though the autism figures are catastrophic and getting worse they exist in a new sea of other additional support needs. Also, some terrible fate is overwhelming pupils in secondary education.

When I wrote about the last set of figures in Scotland my articles were taken off Google News, probably after the intervention of Scottish government, or some pharmaceutical PR agency in London like Science Media Centre or Sense About Science. And very soon after Age of Autism was taken off Google News altogether. But the bottom line is that this is the real news: this is the Scottish government’s own data – nothing to do with me – and they cower in silence.

I met a traveller from an antique land,

Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;

And on the pedestal, these words appear:

My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;

Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

John Stone is UK and European editor of Age of Autism

I've been late to peruse the above BMJ Rapid Responses, coming into the site through this discussion:

(with some interesting proposals of risk mechanisms from influenza vaccination, the new adjuvant used in a new hepatitis B and shingles vaccines, aluminum adjuvant etc from Vinu Arumugham, and I'm wondering, as a member of the "laity," if the change of title to one of his entires rather makes the the conversation less clear...if the biggest danger of dengue--which I know nothing about--actually turns out to be from anaphylaxis set up via injection route of exposure, then I'm inclined all the more to think we should not be imitating mosquitos in some aspects of our "healthcare," nor releasing GM mosquitos as "vaccines" or otherwise...)

I mostly just wanted to concur that the conversation under "MEPs devise strategy to tackle vaccine hesitancy among public" is encouraging, even if the movement to legislatively declare vaccines "safe" is not. Also, I appreciate greatly all of John Stone's more-to-the-point IMO responses to the BMJ.

Yes, Dr. Mendelsohn was Jewish. In fact, he was a very committed and learned Jew.

"It's happening in ALL the countries across the globe."

If one's ultimate goal is "population control" .. their solution would have to "happen in ALL countries across the globe".

I cannot conceive of a "better way" to control the population than vaccines .. and .. I can't think of a single answer other than population control to explain WHY every country in the world .. at the very same time .. is having the very same UNEXPLAINED epidemics of chronic autoimmune disorders .. such as .. autism?

Think of the world as a "garden" .. and .. think of the vaccine industry as the "constant gardener" who is "pruning HIS garden of too many WEEDS.

Not sure that is absolutely true.
I have never seen any data for Russia . What is their vaccination schedule ?

And in Africa , in parts , people know , they literally run for their lives at the mere mention of the word vaccination. I have seen the pictures & the panic & the fear.

Broadly speaking you are right however. This is the crime of all crimes .
But I now believe the number of people globally with autism to be greater than 100M
given that in 2012 there were 10M in India & China had 5M in 2005.

Autism is only a percentage of the crime, I could only guess at a number ?
The Flu vaccine must be wiping out millions at the older end of the spectrum.
Gardsil could really be the "special" one for them , have they just sterilised an entire generation ?
I suspect they have. Ian Frazer knows.

Theres quite a lot I skip over on Whale as well attacks on Jews,Reptile changing humans,Masons etc Being a Christian no matter who we worship we have to stick together against the real evil ,that to me is all that Globalists represent headed by Gates and Soros et-al.

I do appreciate that Whale has made available many important documents but I am not so keen on the race libel - being Jewish makes me vulnerable but I promise you I would not like it if any other group was targeted like that. In the end people are just people and I have never been able to determine who is good and who is bad on the basis of religion or nationality. It might be mentioned that some key people in this fight have been Jewish, and have stood up - Bernard Rimland for instance. On a familial basis at least Robert Mendelsohn must have been.

I think the critiques that come to mind of the small pox program are the historical one of Alfred Russel Wallace which seems to have been accepted by the CDC, and that recently by Suzanne Humphries and Roman Bystrianik. And frankly it is very hard to imagine how 19th century methods and hygiene could have helped anyone.

Incidentally, in his last book Rimland coined the concept of Dyslogic Syndrome - different from autism - which eloquently describes much of what is happening in our schools now.

Angus Files

John none of the resident trolls(they know who they are) accusing you of getting your stats from Whale yet! but as night follows day the government figures will surely disappear from the official sites and Whale will probably become the only place to still to have them leading to, oh! you liar you got that from Whale..and so it goes on.

Well done

Thank you, Mr. Stone, for all efforts to point out the biggest manmade health crisis of our time, if not of all time.

How much does this crisis weigh into the minds of some bent on provoking thermo-nuclear war between the west and Russia? Yes, there are some major financial shenanigans they hope to get away with, maybe distracting from poisoned kids is hardly at the forefront of their minds, but if people don't start judging the character of those driving our leadership in all aspects via the insane geopolitics they are currently engaged in, then perhaps they could look at the health of our kids raised under more corporate-government intervention than ever...and however, please, wake up! There hardly seems any direction to look IMO without being presented with immense harm underway or in the works.

The Definition of Mercury/Thimerosal was Changed so that if it below .5 mcg-they can say there is no thimerosal/mercury in the vaccine when there is but, people who know Homeopathy understand how a very small amount of a substance can produce a large effect. I used to be able to quickly google the law but these days I can't even find it. It was "California Thimerosal/Mercury Law."
Let us not forget that many conditions of Autism have been cherry picked and taken out from an Autism Diagnosis and instead get pinned as just Speech Delay, OCD, Anxiety Disorder, ODD and many others.If you look closely you may find that the child now has 3 or more separate diagnoses which when put together are actually AUTIStic features which IS AUTISM. This is among the ways that the numbers are hidden.


Someone call William Wallace.

John Stone


Ah yes “the Collapse of Complex Civilisations”, that was what I had in mind!

cherry Misra

To Gary Ogden, and others, you may be interested in a new book entitled the Collapse of Complex Civilizations. One of the portents of the collapse would be that people are less healthy, are having fewer children and there is general dissatisfaction (According to the author, ) The author makes comparisons to the Roman empire. ( I have not read the book, but watched the author's interview with Lynette Zhang)
Regarding the Scotland situation, I would note that wherever one lives in the world, there are many explanations for autism, and little interest beyond those explanations. Autism is kids watching too much tv; Is psychological ; Its genetic ; Its better diagnosis ; Parents want to get special educational services ; parents are too intelligent, so the intelligence sort of doubles up and makes the kid nutty. As a strategy, I think we are better off pointing out to people that few children are healthy any longer. This implies a situation that could happen to any parent, whereas autism is well, just your bad genes and bad luck ( Always YOUR and never MINE, until it happens to you)

I was just checking what I wrote in my article ‘Is there mercury in the U.K. flu vaccine?’ following the Calvin Harris debacle. The answer is that none of the products list mercury or thiomersal as an ingredient, but British health officials stated ambiguously - but with careful wording - that none of the products “contain mercury as an added ingredient”, so on that basis mercury may have been used in the preparation and there might be a residue of around 1 microgram which would be highly undesirable, but not probably the 25 microgram whack that one might easily still get in the US. Also, we tried to check out whether the vaccines were still being dispensed from bottles which required the mercury presevative and we concluded that they probably weren’t. It looks to me like some British health officials at least would rather not have mercury.

One has to be careful about being ‘led to believe’ things - but what is your source?


I guess if they were going to explain it, they would say that it's better diagnosing. To which long-suffering taxpayers might reply that, in that case, let's just go back to the school structure that existed in the 80s because that worked rather well.

John Stone


Thanks - I think you may have actually given me part of the reason why ASD cases in England (1 in 67 Jan 2017) lag those in Scotland (1 in 46 September 2017) although both lots of figures seem to be inexorably on the rise. So the English figures will include more older pupils from when the rates were lower, and also include more 3 or 4 year olds who have not yet received a diagnosis.

I suspect vaccine compliance is going to be comparably high in both countries, but very happy to attribute other differences to eating too much porridge - that seems to me to be an excellent explanation.

Hans Litten

Posted by: John Stone | April 19, 2018 at 08:18 AM

I have been led to believe 90% of all flu vaccines contain mercury.
And 30% contain the full 25mcg of pure Hg toxicity.
Also, with efficacy faked using the fraudulent relative risk measure.
Additionally as we all now know, it isn't only about the mercury.

Who would risk it ? Only an uniformed trusting person.

Grace Green

Thank you, John, for keeping on at them, and giving us all this information. I can't get my brain around simple arithmetic any more, but I wonder if you know that the school lifespan is different in Scotland from the rest of the UK, and indeed if that would make any difference to the significance of the numbers. School starts at age 5 or rising 5, though there is part-time nursery 2 years before that. There are 7 primary years and 6 secondary years, but the leaving exams are taken in secondary 5, and students can start uni. aged 17.
On Aimee's question, there are several possibilities. The Scots tend to be fairly conformist, and may be more compliant about getting their vaccinations. Also, we are not renowned for eating a terribly healthy diet (porridge three times a day, keeps the cold out!), so this could have an effect overall. And then you don't know whether to believe any of the figures that any government puts out anyway. I've certainly seen a LOT of autistic kids in my private teaching (and they'll be at the higher end of the spectrum), but that's purely anecdotal.

Gary Ogden

John: Shocking, and frightening in the deafening silence of those too cowardly to say a word. Thanks for the Shelley. This year marks the bicentenary of the poem. Western civilization faces the same fate as ancient Egypt. The Earth will abide; the human species, perhaps not.

John Stone


Yes, I know. Last time I investigated, though, the flu shots probably did not have mercury in the U.K. Obviously they frequently do in the US.

John Stone


Interesting - just looking at the SEN figures for England which of January 2017 (last report) was said to be 14.4% for the second year running and had actually even come down since the beginning of the decade. It may well be that there have been moves to cap the data, and seem to be quite out of line with the many local reports from England that Anne has been relaying - and which indicate explosive conditions.


if you think this is bad and can not get worse.. think again..

far more sinister things will be introduced soon or have already.

In the UK they promoted the idea of Pertussis vaccines for pregnant women. There is not a single Pertussis vaccine available though. The solution?

Inject them with a 4 in 1 vaccine, Polio,Diphteria, Tetanus, and Pertussis. "Boostrix IPV".

So you will get 4 vaccines just because you are supposed to need one. More vaccines are always better, right? This will be recommend EVERY time you are pregnant not just once.

Then add the flu shot with mercury and the child will be set for life.

Aimee Doyle

@John -

I'm curious. Are these autism rates only in Scotland - or do you think they apply through England? If they are unique to Scotland, I wonder why that would be the case?
