British Press Association Publishes Known-To-Be-False UK Government Flu Death Figures – In A Story To Promote Known-To-Be-Ineffective ‘Flu Vaccines To UK Elderly

An irresponsible scaremongering UK Press Association story published today in the British Media falsely claims a grossly inflated known-to-be-false invented figure for UK ‘flu deaths of 4700.  This was in a story intended to promote ‘flu vaccines to the elderly when numerous repeated peer reviewed papers show the vaccines are ineffective and when the risk of ‘flu death is often nil and other times tiny.  The story falsely claimed:

Around 4,700 people die every year in England after getting flu, a Department of Health spokeswoman said. People in at-risk groups are 11 times more likely to die than someone who is not in an at-risk group.”

Fewer at-risk patients get flu jab Press Association 3rd November 2012. 

In many years the true figure is there are no deaths.  A four year average around the time of the supposed swine flu pandemic was 33 deaths per annum. If in winter 300 people die in an aircrash or 50 die in a motorway vehicle accident, the UK Department of Health will treat the deaths as if from flu and add them to the figures, claiming they are flu deaths.  CHS covered this back in 2010:  UK Fakes Flu Death Numbers

So how is it the British Press allow the British public to be conned by the British government every year like this?

How do we know the figures are false?   The bizarre way they are calculated was explained in 2009 by the out-going Chief Medical Officer Professor Sir Liam Donaldson in a letter published on Christmas Eve in the British Medical Journal: Mortality from pandemic A/H1N1 2009 influenza in England: public health surveillance study BMJ 24th December 2009.

There are around 600,000 deaths in the UK annually from all causes.  So the risk of a ‘flu death is extremely small for a UK population of 66 million.  But in a calculated fashion clearly promoting known ineffective drug industry products British health officials every year use British tax funds to put out these false and invented figures for their friends in the drug industry to benefit financially and some British citizens are certainly injured every year by the vaccines.

How do we know the vaccine is ineffective?  Because study after study from the mainstream medical international research organisation The Cochrane Collaboration has demonstrated it countless times.  Again, CHS covered this here with a list of the papers and weblinks to them: New Study – Flu Vaccine Doesn’t Work

The PA story with the false figures was republished by a number of national UK newspapers and a large number of local newspapers.  None of the papers questioned the figures even though they are known to be false and provably so.

This is a measure of how little we can trust the information published and broadcast by professional news media when they get stories from government sources.  The media do not check or  question the information and the public are then tricked when the press should act as a protection against such blatant corruption within Government.

This is when we also know that the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency coldly and deliberately suppress data about serious vaccine adverse reactions: New Research Shows How Gardasil and Cervarix Vaccines Can Silently Kill Your Daughters And Sons.   In other words, our health officials are promoting known-to-be ineffective drug industry products whilst suppressing information about how many people are killed or seriously injured by them.  And the media are complicit in putting out false information which could lead to elderly people being killed or injured by an ineffective vaccine.

The PA story with the false scaremongering shroud-waving figures has been covered by national media BBC, The Independent, The Guardian:-
