The British don’t like the idea of mandatory vaccination. At least those who took the recent poll done by ITV’s Good Morning Britain breakfast television show don’t.
As the mainstream media began spreading another panic-mongering news about another Covid-19 viral variant, a.k.a. Omicron, ITV joined the fray. It asked its viewers whether the time has come to introduce a vaccination mandate, with all kinds of punishment meted out to those who beg to disagree.
That in the country that has given the world its modern democracy, the country that houses the Mother of Parliaments.
The entire Omicron wave of news strangely coincides with European Union’s top official Ursula von der Leyen’s recent call to get rid of the Nuremberg Code. This set of 10 rules, part of the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal’s decisions and binding on all countries that are members of the United Nations Organisation (UNO), stipulates precisely what can be done with experimental medical materials. It applies to all of the so-called anti-Covid-19 vaccines: none of them has finished their obligatory third stage of clinical testing. That means they may be only used only with the Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA).
Herewith, the definition: an Emergency Use Authorisation is a mechanism to facilitate the availability and use of medical countermeasures, including vaccines, during public health emergencies.
According to their own manufacturers’ documentation, and confirmed by regulatory agencies’ documentation, the third stage of clinical tests won’t be over before the year 2023, at the earliest.
What does it mean?
It means that any attempts to mandate and/or enforce obligatory vaccination by anyone on anybody is strictly illegal, and a capital offence.
The overall news coverage of the Omicron variant in Europe keeps mentioning that there have been 59 cases recorded, omitting two important details: 59 cases within 448 million citizens in the European Union, and the World Health Organisation (WHO) has already reported there have been no fatal outcomes (read: deaths) linked to the new variant whatsoever.
That still would not stop the ITV: is it time to make vaccines mandatory? they asked.
They were in for a major surprise: out of more than 44,000 respondents to the question, as posted on ITV’s Twitter account, almost 89 per cent said no, absolutely not, not in any shape or form, how dare you.
The numbers ran on ITV’s Twitter account, until somebody from the network’s management noticed (or someone told them to notice).
In any case, they couldn’t pick a better time to delete the entry: it had gone viral, and its disappearance from the Good Morning Britain Twitter account created a real storm of indignation.
The English, known usually for their polite reserve, except in cases where they disagree with their beloved football teams’ losses, have come close to start calling ITV all kinds of names not acceptable in Parliament, in mixed society or at the dinner table.
Good Morning Britain’s ratings used to be respectable, especially in comparison with other networks, the BBC in particular.
This attempt to cover up what some critics called censoring public opinion and consensus is going to cost them dearly: lower ratings equal less advertising and fewer pounds of sterling in income.
Was the jump on the bandwagon worth it?
