British Health Secretary Hancock Wants Legislation To Tackle Anti-Vaccination Websites

The intervention of  the British Health and Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock (pictured) to censor social media sites follows on similar calls by the Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, and the Head of UK National Health Service, Simon Stevens. According to the BBC report:

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock wants new legislation to force social media companies to remove content promoting false information about vaccines.

He said the government is working with internet companies to identify misleading material on jabs, including Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR).

Artificial intelligence programmes could root out bad science.

It seems very unlikely that Hancock understands anything about vaccine data at all, or that he can have been very well advised. As we have seen Dame Sally did poorly when challenged in recent months to make good her claim that we know the MMR vaccine "is safe". The MMR arrived in the UK in 1988, without any significant safety data - no double-blind placebo controlled trials, or anything so exotic - and two brands had to be removed from the market four years after introduction, precipitately by the manufacturers and not by the British government (whose advisers looked blankly on).

When these people talk about misinformation or fake news what they are perhaps really worried about is data sharing: information about what goes on on government committees, what is in the published studies, even what is in the Package Information Leaflets  (PILs), which they will not show you. Anything might be more informative than the director of the Vaccine Confidence Project whose BBC television interview we recently excerpted:

Well, I think the main thing is there most incredibly extensive safety around vaccines - the processes that go around vaccines,  the reasons there is quite a while between when vaccines are developed and when children actually get them is because the system has become more and more and more robust around safety. Frankly, partly because of the public cry  for this,  but it has always been that way from a safety perspective because the government frankly is accountable and if it is recommending and requiring in some senses these vaccines in some senses it is not in the interest of the governments or the producer to be recommending something which is going to cause any damage..

And perhaps it would be if the industry was not immune from being sued (effectively if not theoretically in the UK) and the government ever had to answer, but they never do. If an airliner crashes it has to be investigated, if your child crashes it is just one of those things. When I demonstrated to Dame Sally the escalating chaos in our schools, the fact that the cost of autism would soon likely outstrip old-age if it had not already,  she had nothing to contribute - to have presided obliviously for nine years over this population catastrophe without noticing anything is a remarkable feat.

As it is the UK National Health Service acts illegally every time a vaccine is administered without showing the patient or their parent the PIL, having the risks of the vaccine pointed out and leaving them space to ask questions, before they give their consent.

Finally, it is good to welcome the moderate comment of Fiona Godlee, editor of British Medical Journal, in response to the Health Minister:

"What you have is a spectrum of people, some for whom its an obvious thing to get their child vaccinated, others at the other end who will never be convinced, and, in the middle, perfectly intelligent, sensible people who are not certain what do and its that group of people we need to treat with respect and provide them with information.

"Social media can be both a positive and a negative thing in that. Clumsy-handed censorship I don't think is the way forward," she said.

Jenny Allan. Thank you very much for your response. I do hope you are right about 'It will ultimately fail' and, also, about reaching 'global critical point'.

@Susan Welch "I've always assumed that BBC are government/Pharma puppets, but if this is the case, why the push to ridicule people who question vaccines when the government has so much else on its hands (Brexit)."

We are reaching global critical point here. The BBC, once again, dug up 'discredited' Dr Wakefield to explain why 'teenagers' are unvaccinated. This has been going on since the much hyped Welsh so called measles 'outbreak' in 2013. My goodness, those 'teenagers' are like the youngsters on those 'high school' movies-frozen in time! A rather flattering photo of Dr Wakefield looking through his microscope during his Royal Free research days will not help. He looked handsome and professional, as indeed he was and is. The few children who were MMR unvaccinated due to the 'Wakefield dip' after 1998, are now adults. They include my youngest grandson, fully vaccinated at great expense with single measles, mumps and rubella vaccines at private clinics. It was a good investment.

Like all the other infants whose parents paid for monovalent vaccines, my grandson's vaccines were not recorded on the NHS database. Also, the single measles and rubella vaccines were available as a parental 'choice' on the NHS until after the Millennium. This too was not recorded. He has been 'chased' to get MMR vaccinated under a catch up programme aimed at 'teenagers'. The youngsters are taken out of classes at school and jabbed, but you cannot force older children to accept vaccines, you can only 'persuade' them. My grandson just said no. He lives with the consequences of MMR vaccine damage in his elder brother.

Public Health England has wasted £millions on unwanted MMR and other vaccines which have had to be thrown out after reaching their use by dates. Waste of this scale would be questioned in any other part of the NHS, but PHE seems to be unaccountable to our parliament.

In Japan, a health news reporter has just lost a defamation case, where she accused a scientist of 'fabricating' his research into the HPV vaccine. The court found there was no proof of this. At last! The press and media have had to account for false accusations against honest scientific researchers. This won't help Dr Wakefield, who failed to get his own defamation cases into a court of law for a judicial review. Japan, of course, sensibly threw out the MMR vaccine after the Urabe mumps component scandal and has recently withdrawn the HPV vaccine from its schedules.

It seems the climate has changed in the press and media world. People are no longer fooled by some of this ridiculous 'spin doctoring'. The BBC's latest measles campaign is so unbelievable it will prove to be counter productive. Pharmaceutical companies now rely on vaccines for their profits. Attempting to censor the internet is now their last throw of the dice. It will ultimately fail.

John, thank you so much for this. The situation in UK is certainly getting dire, with BBC spouting their lies and propaganda at every and any opportunity

What I don't understand is - why now? I've always assumed that BBC are government/Pharma puppets, but if this is the case, why the push to ridicule people who question vaccines when the government has so much else on its hands (Brexit).

Anyone any theories?

(I'm doing my best to counter all the BBC lies on Twitter, with mixed results)

Science is pure.  People are corrupt.

Also in the news from the UK today is that more than one in ten boys aged between five and ten has a mental illness.

e, (British Health and Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock, said the government is working with internet companies to identify misleading material on jabs, including Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR).Artificial intelligence programmes could root out bad science.
Oh really? …..and who or what is going to be the arbiter of what is or is not ‘bad science’? Some kind of ‘robot’? How very Orwellian.

Quote from my recent BMJ rapid response:-
“Re: Measles: Europe sees record number of cases and 37 deaths so far this year”
Curiouser and curiouser. The number of measles cases testing IgM positive in Table 1 for the second quarter of 2018 appears as 239 cases. This is also presented as the TOTAL number of cases in the same table, suggesting for the second 2018 quarter, IgM positive measles cases also sent for RNA testing were not counted twice in Table 1. (1)
April –June 2018.
Notified 1763: Tested 1161: IgM Pos 239: PCR pos 120
Other pos 48: Tested Locally 14: Total 239.
Conversely, the PHE blurb below Table 1 states the total number of positive measles cases to be 421, the sum of all the measles cases testing positive. (239 IgM + 120 PCR+ 48 other positives+ 14 tested locally)
This total, with regional breakdown numbers is repeated in Table 2. (1)”

Measles surveillance data 2018(England)
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/measles-confirmed-cases/measles-notifications-and-confirmed-cases-by-quarter-in-england-2013-to-2015
Quote:-
"Following the Measles-Rubella (MR) school campaign in November 1994 the Public Health England predecessor (PHLS) has offered oral fluid testing to confirm the diagnosis on all notified cases of measles, mumps and rubella. This is part of the enhanced surveillance programme for these vaccine-preventable diseases. The table below shows only the cases confirmed by oral fluid IgM antibody tests and/or PCR in each quarter compared to the number of notified cases."

2018 PHE Measles Surveillance data (England)
Ist Quarter Notified 1202 Tested 756 Positive 91 (12% positive)
2nd Quarter Notified 1763 Tested 1166 Positive 359 (30.8% positive)
3rd Quarter Notified 1016 Tested 657 Positive 67 (10.2% positive)

For the last few days the BBC has been doing its usual tub thumping scaremongering about measles. Including dragging out a middle aged woman who claims her life was ‘ruined’ by the measles causing scar tissue on the brain and epilepsy. Previously they gave air space to a mother whose daughter developed a rare form of encephalitis, 25 years after contracting measles in infancy. This condition is mentioned as a side effect oif MMR vaccine, as is seizures. It seems our damaged children count for nothing in all this nonsense propaganda.

There were nearly1000 measles cases in England last year they bellowed. Data from Public Health England. This quango is getting out of hand. Time to put it on the bonfire as promised in successive election manifestos. In a population of more than 55million it amounts to a miniscule percentage. There have been no reported deaths.

I could only get official England Measles records for the first 3 quarters of 2018, but PHE, aided and abetted by the BBC, has a nasty habit of confusing notified measles cases with laboratory confirmed cases. According to my maths there were 517 confirmed cases to October 2018. Are they saying there were another 500 measles cases in the last quarter? I don’t think so. The second quarter figures appear to have been inflated by counting some of them twice, as explained in my above response to the BMJ. We are not told whether or not the individuals were previously vaccinated, or foreign nationals, including large numbers of immigrants, many from countries which don’t routinely vaccinate.

It’s good to see Fiona Godlee defending free speech on social media as averse to blanket censorship. (Quote) "Social media can be both a positive and a negative thing in that. Clumsy-handed censorship I don't think is the way forward," she said.
I think any attempts at blanket censorship of any issues, will kill social media as we know it. Facebook and Twitter rely on advertisers. They need us more than we need them. Sites like this one are not regulated from the UK.

I'm only aware of a handful of "anti-vaccination" websites. How many are there?

Another clueless dunderhead. The U.S.A. has no monopoly on them.

Well this is what you can expect from the GlaxoSmithKline Kingdom where doctors are punished for criticizing vaccines before shareholder-chaired tribunals.

Its all you have got left Matt (lying and thieving and maiming & fake mumps scares)

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-nottinghamshire-47694563

Stephen A. Krahling and Joan A. Wlochowski (“the relators”), former Merck virologists and often called “Merck whistleblowers,” filed suit in the name of the United States – a so-called qui tam action, where the prosecution shares any fines or penalties with the two virologists – against Merck.

The Mumps vaccine is a fraud Hancock - As are you !
