The topic of excess deaths and their potential link to COVID-19 vaccines has been a contentious issue that many politicians have been hesitant to address. However, one Member of Parliament, Andrew Bridgen, has been fearlessly advocating for public debate on this matter for the past 14 months. Despite facing personal attacks and being expelled from the Tory party, Bridgen has persevered and is now gaining cross-party support from his peers in Parliament. In an interview, Bridgen discusses the growing awareness of this issue and his hopes for a full House of Commons debate on excess deaths by Easter.
Bridgen acknowledges the challenge of bridging the gap between journalists who are eager to investigate the PPE contracts scandal and those who are unaware of the issues surrounding the Yellow Card scheme, which flags up COVID-19 vaccine harm. However, he remains optimistic and highlights the progress he has made in Parliament. After numerous attempts, Bridgen finally secured an Adjournment Debate on excess deaths, albeit with sparse attendance from colleagues. Nevertheless, the public gallery was full, and even more people were waiting outside. Bridgen then organized a talk by medical experts on vaccine harm and deaths, which garnered the support of 20 MPs, with 17 signing a petition for a debate. This led to a 90-minute Westminster Hall debate that was attended by 23 backbenchers. With 22 signatories for a debate in the main chamber, it is evident that there is significant demand for thorough discussion and investigation into excess deaths.
The suppression of coverage on vaccine harms and deaths has not gone unnoticed by the public. Bridgen emphasizes that mainstream media's power lies in their ability to report news through omission. However, more people are realizing this, leading to a shift in awareness within Parliament and the wider population. Excess deaths are affecting communities across the country, particularly in the 50-to-64-year-old age group with cardiovascular problems. Bridgen highlights a 13% increase in excess deaths for this age group last year and notes that similar trends can be seen globally.
The upcoming debate in the main chamber of the House of Commons is a significant milestone in the battle for truth. Bridgen expects there to be immense pressure on colleagues from their constituents, urging them to attend and listen to what is said. The debate's timing is currently being discussed, with Bridgen petitioning for its importance to be recognized. The growing awareness within Parliament reflects the shift in awareness among the wider population.
Bridgen also addresses censorship and the mainstream media's response to his previous speech. He reveals that YouTube categorized his speech as medical misinformation, highlighting the challenges faced in getting the truth out to the public. However, Bridgen remains undeterred, emphasizing that all his claims were supported by scientific evidence, which he shared through press packs. He believes that the credibility of legacy media is being diminished as viewers recognize that it is their version of the truth, rather than reality.
The parallels between the Horizon scandal at the Post Office and the investigation into COVID-19 vaccine harms are evident to Bridgen. He notes that the government's attempts to cover up vaccine harms for 20 years, similar to the 15-year cover-up of the Horizon scandal, may not succeed due to the magnitude of the issue. The number of people affected by vaccine harm and excess deaths is too significant to be brushed under the carpet. Bridgen draws strength from other scientists and individuals who have spoken out against the prevailing narrative, despite facing backlash and cancellation.
The issue of censorship poses a challenge, but Bridgen believes that information on vaccine harm and excess deaths is readily available outside of mainstream media. He also highlights that this has become a cross-party issue, with support from MPs across different political parties. Bridgen's petition for a full debate on excess deaths is expected to be irresistible, given the overwhelming public interest and support from colleagues. The longer the government delays the debate, the more information will emerge, increasing the pressure on MPs to attend.
In conclusion, the battle for truth regarding excess deaths and their potential link to COVID-19 vaccines is gaining momentum. Andrew Bridgen's unwavering commitment and cross-party support in Parliament signify a significant shift in awareness. The upcoming debate in the main chamber of the House of Commons is a crucial step towards addressing this issue. With the public demanding answers and increased scrutiny on vaccine harms and deaths, it is becoming increasingly difficult for mainstream media to ignore this pressing matter.
