England and Wales Deaths in Week 3 More Than a Thousand People (Fatalities) Higher Than 5 Years Ago

INTERESTINGLY, THERE IS new data, published less than an hour ago, and it shows 1000+ more deaths than 5 years ago, for week 3 – the latest on record:

Week 3 2019 deaths

That’s 5 years ago.

This is this month:

Week 3 2024 deaths

Will our government commission an inquiry to investigate the cause/s?

Philip Davies Cites ONS Data, Highlighting Very Exceptionally High Number of Deaths

I think this covers all the important points. This is an approximate transcript:

(Shipley) (Con)
As we have seen in data published by the ONS, non-covid excess deaths continue to run higher than they should. People are dying unexpectedly across all age groups, particularly at home. Since the restrictions in March 2020, there have been 110,000 excess deaths in people’s own homes. In the week ending 22 December 2023, deaths at home were 11% higher than the five-year average. In the first 11 months of 2023, over 21,000 excess deaths took place at home, which is roughly one every 25 minutes.
Last month an article in The Lancet, co-authored by the head of mortality analysis at the ONS, stated that although
“the causes of these excess deaths are likely to be multiple”,
ONS data did show some clear trends—in particular, the “largest relative excess deaths” since the pandemic occurred in young and middle-aged adults, with the number of cardiac deaths happening outside hospitals the most elevated. In other words, young and previously healthy people are dying at home from cardiac-related events, and we do not know why. The article concludes:
“Timely and granular analyses are needed to…inform prevention and disease management efforts.”
Let us be clear: this is not a new phenomenon. Experts have been raising concerns about excess deaths since as early as 2021. I remember seeing an interview with Professor Carl Heneghan, professor of evidence-based medicine at Oxford University, where he called for an investigation into the 75,000 excess deaths at home between March 2020 and October 2021. Some 90% of those excess deaths were not covid-related, but related to things such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Many of those deaths could have been prevented had people not been dissuaded from seeking care, because they were told by the media and the Government to stay at home and protect the NHS. Perhaps they tried to get help but were dismissed by a health service concerned with only one disease.
The calls for an investigation went ignored then, just as they are ignored now. Perhaps the covid inquiry, as others have said, should make better use of Professor Heneghan’s time by asking about this topic rather than the tittle-tattle that it seems to revel in. The pertinent question is: why did we lock down at all? That is what I think did the biggest damage.
We can all speculate on the cause of excess deaths, which are clearly happening, from withdrawal of healthcare during lockdown, the increased risk of sedentary lifestyles and alcohol consumption, the impact of the pandemic and related restrictions on NHS staffing levels, increasing NHS waiting times, lack of access to emergency care, covid-19 vaccine adverse reactions or another unknown cause—perhaps a mix of all of the above. Until the Government commit to a robust and independent investigation, we will not know for sure and the speculation will keep going. That is why the Government need an investigation rapidly.”

Happy New Year, UK Deaths Up About 10% Since 5 Years Ago (Before Covid-19)

I HAVE just compared this morning’s weekly figures, which I certainly hope are correct and accurate. Those suggest that deaths in the UK, or at least in England and Wales, are up about 10% compared to 5 years ago.

Here is 2019, weeks 1 and 2:

2019 deaths in England and Wales weeks 1-2

Same weeks in 2024:

2024 deaths in England and Wales weeks

In England, Over a Million People Admitted to Hospital With COVID-19 and Now the Government Shuts Down the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Dashboard

I very rarely check this portal anymore, and that is primarily because 3 years have passed since I lost confidence in the system and this “Crisis of Trust” only worsens over time. But I have only just noticed that a million English people with COVID-19 reached the hospital (probably more, but testing isn’t done much anymore) and they are deprecating the dashboard.

COVID-19 dashboard

It is worth noting that they remove (or removed) the dashboard just when “People tested positive in England” (over the past week) is up 39%!

Kill the dashboard, problem solved?

They try to tell us that last month, in winter, there were 583 “Daily cases”, but we know that infection levels in some countries reached an all-time high. They just don’t test much. If you’re not tested at all (never mind as positive) and you die, what will they blame? Cause of death… what?

The dashboard counts “21,024,823″ cases of COVID-19 since it all began, but health professionals and the media tell us nearly everyone has had it by now and many had it several times.

This is not science. This is pure bullshit, or politicised cover-up with scientific veneer. Even total mortality figures are becoming harder to trust.

A ‘Pandemic’ or Epidemic of Heart Diseases (After Botched Response to COVID-19)

Another new press release, this one relayed from the channel that’s being suppressed (habitually censored) by Google’s YouTube.

Description in case Google censors it, as it sometimes does.

Our world in data excess mortality

Early heart disease deaths rise to 14-year high

Over 100,000 excess deaths involving cardiovascular conditions in England since February 2020

Heart and circulatory diseases cause around a quarter of all deaths in England,

Over 140,000 deaths each year,

or one death every four minutes.

Healthcare costs relating to heart and circulatory diseases, £8.3 billion each year.

The cost of cardiovascular disease to the wider economy in England,

(including premature death, disability and informal costs),

is estimated to be £22 billion each year.

Latest NHS England figures show that the number of people waiting for cardiac care at the end of November in England was 402,208.

The heart care waiting list is 72% larger than in February 2020.

This is an increase of 169,000 people – enough to fill Wembley stadium nearly twice over.

In 2022

Over 39,000 people in England died prematurely of cardiovascular conditions,

heart attacks, coronary heart disease and stroke,

an average of 750 people each week.

It is the highest annual total since 2008.

Since 2020, the premature death rate for cardiovascular disease has risen year-on-year

This is the first time there has been a clear reversal in the trend for almost 60 years.

The BHF says more analysis is needed to understand what is driving the trend.

Dr Sonya Babu-Narayan, Associate Medical Director at the BHF and Consultant Cardiologist, said:

We are still seeing more people than expected die from cardiovascular conditions overall – more than any other disease group.

It’s clear to me that urgent intervention is long overdue.

In January 2023, the Government announced a Major Conditions Strategy to tackle the biggest drivers of ill health and early death in England

Government Covering Up Excess Deaths (Mortality) in the UK After Poor Response to COVID-19 and Profiteering

I am glad some people talk about this.

This is worrying. They changed it from Tuesdays to Wednesdays for updates and they try to hide just how badly the COVID-19 response was and still is. Loads of people are dying; answers are not being sought.

Here is what the video covers:

Neale Hanvey
(Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath) (Alba)

Time is tight, so I will cut to the chase. I pay tribute to the hon. Member for North West Leicestershire (Andrew Bridgen) for his courage and determination on this important matter. I also challenge the right hon. Member for Knowsley (Sir George Howarth) on his assertion that these were so-called experts at that meeting. They are world-renowned experts in their field; that is just a matter of observable fact.

I want to focus on the safe use of novel mRNA agents and on concerns over their alleged role in driving excess deaths. I repeat a point that I have made previously in this place and directly with the Minister: any agent has the potential to cause harm or injury to the subject. For the avoidance of doubt, the position I have taken is based on decades of involvement in the management and delivery of clinical trials. Politicians who dismiss the data and emerging clinical evidence are acting in a wholly irresponsible manner, and posing a real threat to the duties of honesty and candour at the heart of good clinical practice. If substantiated, the concerns surfacing around falsified or concealed data are the most serious that I can imagine.

I have worked in the same institution as Professor Dalgleish, and his credentials are impeccable.

Addressing this matter is necessary because we are talking about the standards on which good clinical practice, or GCP, is based. GCP is not about a nice bedside manner or knowing what treatment to prescribe; it is a set of internationally recognised ethical and scientific requirements, which must be followed when designing, conducting, recording and reporting on clinical trials that involve people, and have their origin in the declaration of Helsinki.

The rights, safety and wellbeing of trial subjects are the most important consideration, which should prevail over interests of science and society, including commercial or political interests, and I will conclude with a reflection on that important principle. The foundation of good clinical practice is under threat. In their December 2023 pathology research and practice paper on gene-based covid-19 vaccines, Rhodes and Parry gave the following warning:

“Pandemic management requires societal coordination, global orchestration, respect for human rights and defence of ethical principles. Yet some approaches to the COVID-19 pandemic, driven by socioeconomic, corporate, and political interests, have undermined key pillars of ethical medical science.”

None of these clinical experts are quacks or conspiracy theorists. As the Government said so often during the pandemic, we must follow the science

BT: Third Time Lucky?

Telecommunication tower with some buildings in London

TWO months ago a BT advisor said I would not be charged 10 pounds (spurious fee). He assured me it would not happen and if it did happen, I should phone to rectify it.

Weeks passed and they did charge me, contrary to what their staff had said. So I phone up, waited on the line for a very long time, and they then said they would remove that charge. They even sent a formal E-mail to confirm the charge would be canceled.

Today the bill came and the correction has still not been made. This means that I already needed to get on the phone with BT thrice to rectify the issue. Maybe the strategy is to tire me down, hoping that a very busy lifestyle would lead to defeatism and make BT a little richer (just due to these tiring barriers and several false promises).

That’s a lot of trouble to go through, basically to argue over money that is barely worth the time anymore.

I am still on the phone at this very moment. Maybe all those calls have thus far totalled at one hour and it’s still not resolved.

Quick update: Moments ago the person on the line (third person already) said he would escalate this to his manager because something went wrong. It’s not my fault but theirs; the person I spoke to does not even know how to sort this out.
