Are The Murdochs Dictating Vaccination Policy in Australia, in the Best Interests of GlaxoSmithKline

Murdoch and company
By Elizabeth Hart

Is Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch’s News Corp media group dictating Australia’s vaccination policy? 

The Murdoch media group’s relentless No Jab, No Play campaign was adopted by the Australian government, becoming the coercive No Jab, No Pay law in January 2016.

But the Murdoch media group now known as News Corp did not properly disclose its conflict of interest in this matter, i.e. its association with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is involved in vaccine research and development projects funded by vaccine manufacturers such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur.

How useful for GlaxoSmithKline and co to have the Murdoch media group campaign for a coercive law which seeks to make the community compliant to an ever-increasing amount of lucrative vaccine products via Australia's taxpayer-funded vaccination schedule.

The former chair of the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation, Terry Nolan, is now associated with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute and working on industry-funded projects.  Terry Nolan is also a member of the World Health Organisation's SAGE group, and thereby influential on international vaccination policy.  There's a lot more to this web of influence that needs to be explored...

The Murdoch Children's Research Institute is supported by News Corp and Foxtel.  Lachlan Murdoch's wife Sarah Murdoch is a Director and Ambassador for the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.  Rupert Murdoch's mother Dame Elisabeth Murdoch was one of the original founders of this institute. 

I've challenged both Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, and Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch on this matter, see email thread below:

24 July 2018

Open email to:

Mr Malcolm Turnbull, 

Prime Minister of Australia

Mr Turnbull, it appears the media group associated with the Murdoch family, now known as News Corp, may have influenced the Federal Government's coercive No Jab, No Pay law via its protracted No Jab, No Play media campaign in its tabloid newspapers such as the Daily TelegraphHerald SunCourier Mail, and The Advertiser etc.

This is especially significant considering the Murdoch media group has a conflict of interest in this matter, i.e. its association with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is involved in vaccine research and development projects funded by vaccine manufacturers such as GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Novartis and Sanofi Pasteur.  

Particularly bearing in mind this conflict of interest, it is an extremely serious matter that the Murdoch media group may have influenced the implementation of a coercive law which seeks to make the community compliant to an ever-increasing amount of lucrative vaccine products via the taxpayer-funded National Immunisation Program Schedule.  

I also suggest the failure to properly disclose this conflict of interest contravene's News Corp's own Editorial Code of Conduct and Standards of Business Conduct, as outlined in my email to Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, see below.

Others also had undue influence on the implementation of the No Jab, No Pay law, e.g. the Friends of Science in Medicine lobby group which supported the No Jab, No Pay bill at the Senate Hearing held in November 2015.  It is notable that members of the Friends of Science in Medicine lobby group include academics who are associated with the vaccine industry via research funding.

Mr Turnbull, the biased and polarising media campaign run by the Murdoch media group, News Corp, and others has resulted in a hostile climate where citizens questioning vaccination policy are reflexively labelled 'anti-vaxxer' and marginalised or even censored.  Associate Professor in International Criminology Paddy Rawlinson discusses the undermining of free speech on this matter in her essay Immunity and Impunity: Corruption in the State-Pharma Nexus, published in the International Journal for Crime, Justice and Social Democracy, currently accessible via this link: https://www.crimejusticejournal.com/article/view/447 (Copy also attached.)

Curtailing citizens' right to question taxpayer-funded vaccination policy is a serious matter in our liberal democracy.  Recently citizens organised a conference in Sydney to discuss the censorship of the vaccination debate in Australia.  The venue for this conference had to be kept secret until a few hours before the start due to the threat of it being shut down.  I presented at this conference on the topic of conflicts of interest in vaccination policy, as detailed in my email to Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, see below.

Mr Turnbull, politicians, including you, are refusing point-blank to respond to citizens' concerns about taxpayer-funded vaccination policy, in particular about the over-use of vaccine products.  

It appears the Murdoch run Newscorp and other vested interests are running Australia's taxpayer-funded vaccination policy now, courtesy of obliging politicians who are failing to properly represent Australian citizens on this matter.

I am now challenging the Murdoch's directly about their media group's influence on Australian vaccination policy.  In this regard, please see below my open email to Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, also copied to Mr Robert Thomson, Chief Executive of News Corp, and also Ms Sarah Murdoch, Director of and Ambassador for the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.  The original email can be accessed via this link:  https://bit.ly/2mEiyaS

This email to Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch includes exposure of the conflicts of interests of academics influential on vaccination policy in Australia.  This email also includes discussion on the GlaxoSmithKline Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine product for the very rare invasive meningococcal B disease, which is being heavily promoted by politicians and others, despite being rejected by the PBAC three times for the taxpayer-funded schedule due to 'multiple uncertainties' about this product.

19 July 2018

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch

I believe your media group's No Jab, No Play campaign has influenced taxpayer-funded vaccination policy in Australia, with then Prime Minister Tony Abbott obligingly adopting your campaign as policy, i.e. No Jab, No Pay, with cross-party support from Labor's Bill Shorten and the Greens' Richard Di Natale.  Your National Political Editor, Samantha Maiden, gloated about the success of The Sunday Telegraph's No Jab, No Play campaign (11 April 2015).  

The No Jab, No Pay law was enacted in January 2016, under Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, the intent of this law being to make parents compliant to the ever-increasing taxpayer-funded children's vaccination schedule.  Some state governments are now also adopting No Jab, No Play policies.  It appears Australian politicians may have been influenced by the Murdoch media group, while ignoring citizens well-founded concerns about the burgeoning National Immunisation Program Schedule. 

I strongly believe the Murdoch family has a conflict of interest in this matter, i.e. the Murdoch family's association with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is involved in industry-funded vaccine research and development.  The Murdoch Children's Research Institute website notes that Rupert Murdoch's mother Dame Elisabeth Murdoch was involved in the founding of this institute. The Murdoch Children's Research Institute's Corporate Partners webpage states that News Corp and Foxtel support this institute. 

I suggest the Murdoch family's association with an institute involved in industry-funded vaccine research and development should be clearly disclosed as a conflict of interest on all articles regarding vaccination published by the Murdoch media group.

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, would you not agree that failing to disclose this conflict of interest contravenes News Corp’s own Editorial Code of Conduct and News Corp's Standards of Business Conduct in regards to conflict of interest?[1]

For years your media group has run the extraordinarily biased No Jab, No Play vaccination campaign, and has been a major party in creating a polarised 'pro' and 'anti' vaccination climate, with hyperbolic articles such as 'Anti-vaxers, you are baby killers' (Claire Harvey, The Sunday Telegraph, 21 March 2015).

In this hostile climate, any citizen questioning vaccination policy is reflexively labelled an 'anti-vaxxer' and marginalised or even censored.  Politicians are refusing to respond to citizens' concerns about taxpayer-funded vaccine products, the cost of which is kept secret from taxpayers, i.e. categorised as 'commercial-in-confidence', protecting vaccine manufacturers from scrutiny.

Your newspapers have failed to provide serious, objective and nuanced critical analysis of taxpayer-funded vaccination policy, i.e. examination of the burgeoning National Immunisation Program Schedule, which currently sits at around 50 doses of vaccines for children, via single and combination shots, and revaccinations.[2]  This does not include the annual flu vaccinations we are all being pressured to have, young and old. We have no idea of the long-term consequences of this increasing vaccine load.

I suggest children are being grossly over-vaccinated with this plethora of vaccine products, which are added to the schedule without any consultation with the community. The community is being coerced with inducements and made compliant to the ever-increasing schedule, with the right to 'informed consent' before each vaccine intervention being effectively denied, in contravention of The Australian Immunisation Handbook's definition of valid consent, i.e that “It must be given voluntarily in the absence of undue pressure, coercion or manipulation”.  I suggest doctors, nurses and midwives are conflicted in their ethical duty with this coercive medical intervention.

Since the No Jab, No Pay law was enacted in January 2016, yet another injection of diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis vaccines (GlaxoSmithKline Infanrix or Sanofi-Aventis Tripacel) has been added to the schedule, along with the recent addition of the meningococcal ACWY vaccines (Pfizer Nimenrix).  Intensive industry lobbying for GlaxoSmithKline's Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine continues, along with increasing pressure for annual flu vaccines for children, e.g. the NSW Government offering 'free' flu vaccines for children under five years. The bloated and conflicted vaccination schedule is out of control, we have no idea of the long-term cumulative consequences of all these vaccine interventions. 

The taxpayer-funded National Immunisation Program Schedule must be subject to an urgent review, particularly in light of the conflicts of interest that permeate this bloated schedule, and emerging problems with vaccines, e.g. repeated revaccination throughout life with the failing aluminium-adjuvanted acelluar pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine, over-use of live vaccines, failing immunity of mumps vaccines, flu vaccines etc. 

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, would you not agree your failure to "tell all sides of the story" in regards to the bloated and conflicted vaccination schedule contravenes News Corp's own Editorial Code of Conduct?  

I presented on the subject of conflicts of interest in vaccination policy at the citizens' conference The Censorship of the Vaccination Debate in Australia Today, held in Sydney on 30 June 2018. 

In my presentation I refer to your media group's influence on vaccination policy, noting that you have not clearly disclosed your conflict of interest in this matter, i.e. the Murdoch family's association with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is involved in industry-funded vaccine research and development, supported by News Corp and Foxtel.

As well as examining the influence of rich and powerful families such as the Murdochs and Bill and Melinda Gates, and the conflicts of interest of the Cochrane 'evidence based medicine' group, my presentation also exposes the conflicts of interest of two academics who are very influential on vaccination policy, Terry Nolan and Robert Booy, who are involved with vaccine industry-funded research.

Former Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) Chair Terry Nolan is now a Group Leader in vaccination and immunisation research (VIRGo) with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, with involvement in projects funded by GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, Novartis, Sanofi Pasteur and Novavax, as recorded in Terry Nolan's presentation titled 'The National Immunisation Program in the modern era - providing, nudging, and cajoling', presented at the PHAA National Immunisation Conference 2016.

Terry Nolan is also a member of the World Health Organisation's SAGE group, and thereby influential on international vaccination policy.

Ironically, in June 2012, The Australian’s journalist Natasha Bita raised the issue of conflicts of interest of Terry Nolan in an article titled ‘Pharma conflicts must be disclosed’, but concern about conflicts of interest seems to have evaporated since then.

Robert Booy is Head of Clinical Research at the government and industry-funded National Centre for Immunisation Research & Surveillance, and also a Director and Scientific Advisory Member of the Immunisation Coalition, an industry organisation which is sponsored and supported by GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer, CSL company Seqirus, Sanofi Pasteur, Roche and others, including Google.  Margie Danchin, who works with Terry Nolan in the VIRGo group at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, is also a Director of the industry-sponsored Immunisation Coalition.  Organisations such as the Australian Medical Association, the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners, the Australian College of Nursing, and the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation and others are also associated with the industry-sponsored Immunisation Coalition.

Robert Booy is also a member of the coercive vaccination lobby group Friends of Science in Medicine, which was influential at the Senate Hearing (November 2015) re the No Jab, No Pay bill, with No Jab, No Pay being made law in January 2016.

Both Terry Nolan and Robert Booy have been cited in promotion for the GlaxoSmithKline Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine product on the Medical Observer website.[3]

My presentation also includes discussion on the GlaxoSmithKline Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine product, which was showcased in the PHAA vaccine product promotion conference held in Adelaide in June this year, which was supported by both the Federal and South Australian governments.  How very interesting to see the cosy relationships between governments and vaccine manufacturers and others with vested interests.  

During this government and industry supported vaccine product promotion conference, The Australian reported GlaxoSmithKline's head of global vaccines, Luc Debruyne, met South Australian officials "in an attempt to win support for a government-funded program for the pharmaceutical giant's meningococcal B vaccine" (5 June 2018).

The SA Government has now announced 'free' funding of the GlaxoSmithKline Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine product, undermining the PBAC's decision to reject three times this vaccine product for the taxpayer-funded schedule due to "multiple uncertainties" of this still experimental product. On what evidence did the TGA approve and register this 'uncertain' product?

Meningococcal bacteria is largely quite harmless, and only rarely a serious matter. And this is interesting, why are serious meningococcal cases so rare? This is what independent immunologists should be investigating to develop our knowledge of the human system.

Despite the rarity of invasive meningococcal B cases, it seems the SA Government is accommodating GlaxoSmithKline's determined campaign to force this lucrative product for a very rare disease on the taxpayer-funded National Immunisation Program Schedule, no doubt as a springboard to fast-tracking this very questionable vaccine product around the world and generating a multi-billion dollar market for GlaxoSmithKline.

Politicians are falling over themselves to promote this lucrative vaccine product for a very rare disease, with Labor's Bill Shorten recently tweeting about his letter to Malcolm Turnbull demanding the meningococcal B vaccine be added to the taxpayer-funded National Immunisation Program Schedule (17 July 2018).

And of course the SA Labor Opposition has supported this campaign too, with the assistance of the Murdoch media, e.g. the Adelaide Advertiser which has provided fear-mongering promotion for this 'uncertain' GlaxoSmithKline vaccine product for a very rare disease, see for example 'Calls for free vaccine for the meningococcal B strain grow'The Advertiser, 28 June 2018.

In South Australia, a Bexsero meningococcal B vaccine trial funded by GlaxoSmithKline is under way, involving up to 60,000 students.  Articles published in your Advertiser newspaper say "It is hoped the findings will provide a strong push to get the vaccine on the taxpayer-funded National Immunisation Program" (13 December 2016 and 27 March 2017).

It appears this GlaxoSmithKline funded-trial is biased from the outset, with the support of the Adelaide Advertiser.  Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) member Helen Marshall is the lead investigator on this vaccine trial. Given her role on ATAGI, Helen Marshall has a serious conflict of interest with her leadership of this GlaxoSmithKline-funded trial.

A TV advertisement urging students to participate in this trial says "Help protect yourself, while also protecting your family and friends". I suggest these students are being misled about the effectiveness of this still 'uncertain' vaccine product.

Along with Robert Booy, ATAGI member Helen Marshall is also a member of the coercive vaccination lobby group Friends of Science in Medicine which was influential at the Senate Hearing re the No Jab, No Pay bill.

It's also notable that News Corp is "collaborating with GSK Australia's Children's Panadol in an organic partnership focused on first time mums", as promoted on the News Corp Australia website.  It appears GSK benefits doubly from both vaccination and promotion of Panadol "to provide...fast, effective, temporary relief from pain and fever associated with...Immunisation..."[4] 

The Murdochs seem to have a long association with GlaxoSmithKline.  For example, James Murdoch was appointed as a non-executive director at GlaxoSmithKline in 2009, serving as a member of GlaxoSmithKline's corporate responsibility committee, helping to review "external issues that might have the potential for serious impact upon the group's business and reputation".[5]  James Murdoch resigned as a director of GlaxoSmithKline in 2012[6] in the aftermath of the News of the World phone hacking scandal, when Murdoch media group (News International) journalists were accused of hacking people's phones for information, including murdered teenager Milly Dowler's voicemail.[7]  

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, would you not agree News Corp's partnership with GSK Australia, and also GlaxoSmithKline's funding at the News Corp supported Murdoch Children's Research Institute, constitutes a conflict of interest in your reporting on matters relevant to taxpayer-funded vaccination policy?   Would you not agree that failing to disclose this conflict of interest contravenes News Corp’s own Editorial Code of Conduct and News Corp's Standards of Business Conduct in regards to conflict of interest?

Here's my video presentation re conflicts of interest in vaccination policy, presented at The Censorship of the Vaccination Debate in Australia Today conference, 30 June 2018:

Due to the hostility inhibiting open discussion on vaccination policy in Australia, the venue of this citizens' organised conference discussing vaccination policy and censorship had to be kept secret until a couple of hours before the start time, because people determined to shut it down might have contacted the venue to demand it be cancelled.  That's the state of our liberal democracy today in Australia re citizens questioning vaccination policy, and with doctors, nurses and midwives being afraid to question the national vaccination schedule with the risk of facing de-registration. 

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, please note that informed Australian citizens are demanding transparency and accountability for taxpayer-funded vaccination policy, and exposure of conflicts of interest of parties involved in this area.

In an ideal world citizens expect to rely on the independence and objectivity of the fourth estate to hold politicians and others to account in our liberal democracies. However, in the real world we discover media companies are businesses compromised by their reliance on advertising and other conflicts of interest. A recent self-serving article in The Weekend Australian magazine decries “the internet’s vast network of alternative news and information outlets”, paternalistically insinuating that thinking citizens are incapable of evaluating the worth of material published on the internet (23-24 June 2018.)  I suggest ‘fake news’ is just as likely to occur in the mainstream media, and citizens must fight for their right to freely access a range of views across the internet.

Citizens must be allowed to question whether it is feasible to vaccinate against every ailment, including rare diseases such as invasive meningococcal B.

Citizens must be allowed to question what the future holds for highly vaccinated populations.  Will future generations be made dependent on vaccine products, with natural immunity being destroyed?

What does the future hold with vaccine manufacturers and governments controlling immunity? What about the vaccine failures that are now emerging, for example pertussis/whooping cough, and problems with other vaccines?

There are parallels to consider with the emerging problems from the over-use of antibiotics, and over-prescribing of other medical products such as opioids and anti-depressants.

We need independent 'big picture' thinkers to consider the frightening possibilities with the over-use of vaccine products. Instead, vaccination policy is dominated by Big Pharma and academics on the teat of industry research funding.

Vaccination policy is a shambles, awash with conflicts of interest. The vaccine industry is driving vaccination policy in its quest to develop lucrative vaccine markets, with the assistance of media groups such as News Corp.

There must be an independent and objective review of the burgeoning and conflicted taxpayer-funded vaccination schedule.

Citizens must demand transparency and accountability for vaccination policy from the governments that are supposed to serve us.

Mr Rupert Murdoch and Mr Lachlan Murdoch, in line with News Corp's Editorial Code of Conduct and News Corp's Standards of Business Conduct, I suggest it's way past time your media group disclosed its conflicts of interest, and provided fair and objective critical analysis of taxpayer-funded vaccination policy to redress the years of biased and conflicted reporting you have promoted on this subject. The mind boggles to consider the amount of children who have been grossly over-vaccinated during this time.

Sincerely

Elizabeth Hart

Anti-vaxxer Joan Shenton's film tour disrupted after visa delay.
Joan Shenton, whose anti-vaccination film Sacrificial Virgins was due to screen at seven locations across Australia in August, claimed on Tuesday that the visa she applied for had been stalled, meaning she hadn't been able to fly into the country.

https://www.theage.com.au/national/anti-vaxxer-joan-shenton-s-film-tour-disrupted-after-visa-delay-20180731-p4zuqn.html

What are the chances ?
1 in a million I guess that Joan Shenton's visa application would run into some trouble.
1 in a million , mmmm, that probability sounds familiar, where have I heard that ballcocks before ?

Well Joan you shouldnt have tried to import 1.5 tonnes on pure cocaine into the UK last month on that privately rented yacht coming in from Spain via South America.

Or was as that stolen luxury car found in a container out at Tilbury docks on its way to Africa in your name ?

I bet they don't even have as much as a littering offence against Joan but this shows up the Turnbulls & the Murdochs for what they are ? liars and thieves and worse.

Additionally I would say that because they are having to resort to these kinds of tactics, that we have them worried, have we got them on the run ? I wonder ?

Count yourself lucky Joan.
Polly Tommey & Kent Very_Heckenlively are both banned from the penal colony outright. And lets face it, it is a penal colony once again !

Wow, Hans Litten! Hadn't seen that Autism Investigated piece. Thanks for sharing it. If the Democratic party wants to stay viable, someone really should censor Chelsea Clinton's twitter feed. :)

I am just saying that the report does not seem to have gone that far, although it it has not been finalised. Also, it must be pointed out that this is not a government document (or a White Paper, let alone a draft bill) but a parliamentary one, so one does not know what might be framed in actual legislation. It should also be mentioned that the committee published two submissions from me warning of the dangers of taking public health propaganda on trust:

http://www.ageofautism.com/2017/12/john-stone-presents-written-evidence-to-uk-parliament.html

http://www.ageofautism.com/2018/01/john-stone-aoas-supplementary-evidence-to-the-uk-parliament-on-fake-news.html

It may also be that the Telegraph article yesterday was occasioned just by the fact that the leaked report did not apparently touch on the issue. So, I am not complacent, not optimistic, just trying to weigh up what it all might mean.

I agree that the Jones report was truly reprehensible (as I wrote at the time) and he also must have known that the upsurge in autism could not be driven by genes. Before this he had actually written (if I remember in the Telegraph) that the study of genes had proved largely useless in relation to medicine and even said it should not receive funding.

Jenny Allan

John I would totally agree with any measures which censure actual fake news, propaganda and incitements to hate on the internet, but I fear this latest UK Government 'leaked' document, is about curbing the public's right to be truthfully informed. The Committee may not have advocated "Public Health censorship, over-riding information which is truthful", but the recent Telegraph article demonstrates there is already a powerful lobby aimed at preventing even truthful vaccine articles, from being reported or shared on the internet.

Remember, a geneticist called Steve Jones, advised the BBC , via the Science Media Centre to be 'biased' in favour of mainstream scientific opinion. In other words, whatever the government of the day, in collusion with the likes of Murdoch, decides is in 'the public interest' in terms of public information. When the 'public interest' clashes with the interests of the Government. We know what will win.

With vaccines, anything which is deemed to undermine public confidence is fair game. I fear the likes of Brian Deer's lies in The Times will be permitted, but honest factual articles expressing concerns will be suppressed. It is already happening.

Like I said "The lawyers are going to have a field day deciding what is 'harmful and illegal content'

John Stone

Jenny

However, as far as I can see from reports the committee have not actually suggested that there should be some form of Public Health censorship, over-riding information which is truthful - of course, we do not support here the deliberate dissemination of false information, on whichever side of the debate, and we don't publish here material we are not prepared defend. Of course, in my recent dealing with the Telegraph they have signally not been prepared to defend their actions, and I have now complained to IPSO, the Independent Press Standards Organisation, successor body to the Press Complaints Commission to see whether they can manifest some integrity.

The latest assinine Telegraph report probably greatly over-estimates the penetration of 'Truth about Vaccines'. I have no means to assess the quality of their material since it would take many hours to view - which I do not have - but they did bombard my email box with thousands and thousands of emails which eventually I had to cut off, and I am sure many other people who never watched their stuff must have had similar experiences. The Telegraph describe Robert F Kennedy (Jnr) as an anti-vaccination lawyer!!!

Step

Thanks for your work Elizabeth. Is it possible to read Mr Turnbull's reply to your letter? I never receive replies to the letters I write to politicians about vaccines and fluoride.

John and Elizabeth
For some time, internet forums and social media discussion sites have been seen as a threat to Governments and corporate interests worldwide. Behind the scenes, Government committees are quietly devising ways to enforce internet censorship. As I write this, BBC Breakfast (UK) reports 'Fake News' on internet sites is a 'Threat to Democracy', according to a 'leaked' report from the UK Government's Parliamentary Digital-Culture-Media-and Sport Committee, which has been secretly carrying out an Inquiry into internet social media sites .
https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/digital-culture-media-and-sport-committee/inquiries/parliament-2017/fake-news-17-19/

Some persons have reported their Facebook comments have been taken down without good reason, but there is no appeal. At least one Facebook site dealing with ‘natural news’ has been shut down completely. Now, as John reports, France is shutting down Facebook sites, the UK will follow.
Of course the real 'Threat to Democracy', is censorship, withdrawing citizens’ right to know about and discuss topical issues. Before the internet, UK Governments simply slapped something called a D-Notice on newspapers. They also ‘buried’ files for 20years, as happened with some(not all) UK health files on the Urabe Mumps containing MMR vaccine 1988-1992. ( Gulf War Government files buried for 70 years.)

Zuckerberg is under fire over the recent data sharing scandal and Facebook shares have fallen in value. He has publicly stated support for child vaccines, holding up his children as examples. I no longer believe this kind of propaganda. Doctors and health professionals ‘in the know’ are quietly getting single measles and rubella jabs for their children, and who the hell would vaccinate an infant against mumps, very benign in childhood, if they knew their infant would be exposed to the virus as teenagers when the vaccine effect wears off? ( Mumps is far more serious in adults and can cause sterility.) How do I know this? Social media.

The US court case against Merck, alleged to have fiddled their MMR mumps efficacy figures, rumbles on. Huge amounts of money and legal arguments have been used to keep this out of the courts, and therefore into the domain of an enraged public.

Previous attempts to curtail internet information have failed. The latest UK initiative (still droning on in the BBC background) is to TAX social media sites. Oh great idea- and completely unworkable!
Keep posting folks. If they shut down your comment, just repeat it on another site like this one.
Orwell would turn in his grave!!

As you can see from my emails to Malcolm Turnbull and Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch, posted in this article above, I'm challenging over-vaccination, and demanding a review of the bloated and conflicted taxpayer-funded vaccination schedule.

It's a pragmatic goal to simply help try and reduce obviously unnecessary vaccinations e.g. the second dose of live MMR vaccine, the highly questionable HPV vaccine products, repeated revaccination throughout life with the problematic diphtheria, tetanus and pertusssis vaccine products, plus others. My goal is to try and interrupt the obviously gross over-vaccination of children which is occurring all over the world.

Decreasing obviously questionable vaccination being my primary and I suggest achievable goal, I've steered clear of the Wakefield/MMR controversy as it seems to stop any discussion of vaccination stone dead. This controversy has seriously hindered frank and open discussion on vaccination policy, and continues to threaten censorship on this matter, as we can see in the recent Telegraph article posted by Jenny, i.e. 'Facebook putting children's lives at risk by reviving spurious MMR claims, say UK health chiefs': https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/07/27/facebook-putting-childrens-lives-risk-reviving-spurious-mmr/

While reluctant to engage in the Wakefield/MMR controversy, in 2013 I did include a post on my website that alluded to Andrew Wakefield: https://over-vaccination.net/2013/03/22/the-reluctance-to-acknowledge-adverse-reactions-to-vaccination/

This post referred to an article that illustrates the medical/scientific establishment's reluctance to publish material that casts vaccination in a bad light, i.e. 'Special Report: How vaccine scares cast shadows over science': https://www.reuters.com/article/us-vaccines-narcolepsy-specialreport/special-report-how-vaccine-scares-cast-shadows-over-science-idUSBRE92K06620130321

Are scientists who might blow the whistle on vaccine problems scared of being 'Wakefielded', i.e. their careers and reputations being destroyed? What does this mean for effective surveillance of vaccine safety?

Of course I've followed John Stone's coverage of the Wakefield/MMR saga and also Vera Sharav's, see for example: 'L'affaire Wakefield: Shades of Dreyfus & BMJ's Descent into Tabloid Science': http://ahrp.org/laffaire-wakefield-shades-of-dreyfus-bmjs-descent-into-tabloid-science/

Probably along with many others, I feel a very deep uneasiness that a great injustice has been done...

From an Australian perspective, we can see now that the Murdoch media group has a serious conflict of interest with its biased and aggressive reporting on vaccination, and its association with the Murdoch Children's Research Institute, which is involved in vaccine research projects funded by GlaxoSmithKline and others.

The Murdoch Children's Research Institute was founded in 1986, i.e. the original Murdoch Institute, with the support of Dame Elisabeth Murdoch and her family: https://www.mcri.edu.au/about/history

Has the relationship with vaccine manufacturers such as GlaxoSmithKline (maker of the Priorix MMR vaccine product), via the Murdoch Children's Research Institute coloured the Murdoch-owned Sunday Times' reporting of the Wakefield/MMR saga?

Thankyou elizabeth for sharing the truth about the corruption existing withing the world of vaccination. The transparency is improving hence the attempts to censor by the guilty.
Keep up the good fight!

Elizabeth Hart

Jenny and John, these moves towards censorship of citizens' free discussion of matters relevant to taxpayer-funded vaccination policy must be stopped.

The Telegraph article comes on top of the recent implied threat to ban Joan Shenton from Australia, the documentary filmmaker who tells the stories of young people who have suffered after HPV vaccination in 'Sacrificial Virgins': https://www.theage.com.au/politics/federal/false-and-reckless-health-minister-slams-anti-vaccination-documentary-maker-20180724-p4ztb8.html

The situation is becoming more and more serious and Orwellian...

With a biased mainstream media and increasing threats of censorship, we have to fight for our freedom to access and discuss information about vaccination on the internet and in public.

We have to demand our right as citizens to participate in discussions relevant to taxpayer-funded vaccination policy.

John Stone

Jenny,

Yes, a thoroughly dishonest and infantile article - particularly with all the information I have provided to the Telegraph in the past two weeks - but I also have heard tonight that Facebook sites have been closed down in France. The French and British governments are likely to make the running on this.

Jenny Allan

The Telegraph reports the UK Health bosses are now demanding Facebook censorship of articles questioning vaccine safety.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/07/27/facebook-putting-childrens-lives-risk-reviving-spurious-mmr/
"Facebook putting children's lives at risk by reviving spurious MMR claims, say UK health chiefs."

Its a blood moon here in the UK pity about the low cloud cant see anything... MAYBE ITS THE END OF THE WORLD?but one thing we can be sure of on the day of reckoning, the Murdoch crime family Inc are first in line.

@david weiner I didn't know "shambles" was derived from slaughterhouse, thanks :-)

Miriam Webster has another definition as "a place of mass slaughter or bloodshed - the battlefield became a shambles".

Ironically, many of the schools in Prime Minister Turnbull's electorate have vaccination rates of around 80-85%, nowhere near the magical 95% herd immunity number. Which is why there are swathes of the population dropping dead on Bondi Beach every single day... Oh, wait, no, of course that's not happening...

But, gee, it's odd that PM Turnbull doesn't seem to be worried about what's going on in his own backyard, given that good old 'community immunity' is the supposed reason Australians will be lumbered with such draconian financial penalties if they decide to not vaccinate. Odd, or just downright despicable, given Turnbull surely knows said penalties will less affect people living in his high income electorate, but those on a lower income in other areas will be forced into rolling up their children's sleeves, because financially they may not have any other choice. (and, of course, these are the people who will be least likely to afford therapies and supplements etc. if it all goes horribly wrong. ) The strong arm tactics are maddening, but so is the inequality.

Maybe in the archaic sense of "slaughterhouse"?

"Vaccination policy is a shambles".

I would say that the fundamental problem is that we have a vaccination policy in the first place.

The WHO (World Health Organization) is largely controlled by Bill Gates and the Rockefellers. Indeed, they are far and away the major donors to that organization.

This knowledge is public and is even posted at websites like Wikipedia, which read:

In recent years, the WHO’s work has involved increasing collaboration with external bodies.[94] As of 2002, a total of 473 non-governmental organizations (NGO) had some form of partnership with WHO. There were 189 partnerships with international NGOs in formal “official relations” – the rest being considered informal in character.[95] Partners include the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation[96]and the Rockefeller Foundation.[97]

"single institution in the world .. such as .. the WHO"

The WHO needs to be disbanded.
The WHO's Constitution states that its objective "is the attainment by all people of the highest possible level of health".[20] completely controlled by Pharma for sure !

'Vindication' for woman who wanted ME on death certificate XMRV

The family of only the second person in the UK to have ME recorded on their death certificate say they feel "vindicated" by the ruling.
Merryn Crofts from Rochdale died in May last year, 10 days after her 21st birthday.
Her mother Clare Norton told BBC Radio 5 live's Anna Foster that Merryn had started to doubt herself after being misdiagnosed by doctors.
She said hearing the coroner's verdict "meant everything".
"It's vindication for Merryn because it would have meant so much to her. She was scared of doctors and of telling people she had ME."
Clare described her daughter as a "live wire" growing up, with a packed social life and a love of drama, but said she "lost her bounce" when she started to develop symptoms of ME (myalgic encephalomyelitis), also known chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), at the age of 15.

Unfortunately, the numerous, ever expanding examples of the myriad of people who have obvious .. long standing .. professional … "conflicts of interests" .. serving the vested interests of the vaccine industry rather than the people who are forced to rely upon them for providing unbiased, truthful information regarding vaccines and the policies by which they are manufactured, approved, recommended, administered are positively frightening to read of in this fact filled article.

It is now obvious the VACCINE SWAMP IS GLOBAL .. absent ANY independent authorities capable of exercising ANY restraint upon the vaccine industry … in fact there doesn't appear to be a single institution in the world .. such as .. the WHO .. occupied at the highest levels by those captured by and professionally beholden to the vaccine industry .. an industry completely out of control in promoting their PRODUCT.

The voices often shouted at mass rallies … DRAIN THE SWAMP .. will more than likely remain unheard .. drowned out by the silent exercise of SHEER POWER AND EXTRAORDINARY LUCRATIVE PROFIT of the vaccine industry.

Jenny Allan

Well done Elizabeth Hart. I have re-quoted the following extract from your letter:-
"Vaccination policy is a shambles, awash with conflicts of interest. The vaccine industry is driving vaccination policy in its quest to develop lucrative vaccine markets, with the assistance of media groups such as News Corp.

There must be an independent and objective review of the burgeoning and conflicted taxpayer-funded vaccination schedule.

Citizens must demand transparency and accountability for vaccination policy from the governments that are supposed to serve us."

This applies worldwide. Governments are far too cosy with corporate and political vested interests. Toxic laws are implemented often on the basis of lobbying by self appointed so called experts, and dodgy statistics, often based on ridiculous figures which have been made up on the spot and then widely quoted as truthful by press and media sources.
