Who runs One World Health? Who runs the NHS? Who runs MHRA? Who appears to own the lion’s share in Global Life Sciences?
Bill Gates is a very busy man. He is working hard to prove to the world that he is a wonderful soul who has all our best interests at heart. Those reading this blog will no doubt have their own views of Sir Bill, as do I. However, we must remember that for many of the population he is a hero. What is there not to love about him? He warned us about the ‘pandemic’, he donates huge amounts of money to ‘curing the world’ of disease, he hunts out ‘germs’, and he advises governments on all matters health. Perhaps he believes he is genuinely the best qualified person in the world to be in charge of global health.
With all that said, many see a much darker side to Bill Gates. Do they have a point, or is he just the victim of tinfoil-hat conspiracy theorists and trolls who have too much time on their hands? Is it wild imagination that is creating so much ‘fake news’, or is there no smoke without fire? Who is Bill Gates?
Born in 1955 in Seattle, Bill Gates wrote his first software programme when he was 13 years old. Helping to transform his school’s payroll system, he went onto sell it to local governments. In 1975, at Harvard, Bill met Paul Allen, and together they developed software for the first microcomputers. The success of this enabled Gates to quit Harvard degree-less during his junior year, and he went on to form Microsoft. Within ten years, he was one of the world’s richest individuals.
As a public figure, he gained many supporters from around the world. After all, he warned us of the pandemic, he spends a fortune trying to ‘save the world’, and he invests billions into research through his foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. But trying to ‘prove’ he’s a great guy is proving a little more challenging than perhaps he could ever have imagined.
Bill Gates’ portfolio is interesting, to say the least. It includes trains, waste, toilets, farming, land and health, to name but a few investment areas—and don’t forget Belmont, the supercity he is building in Arizona. You name it, he has an interest in it. As far as I am aware, Bill Gates is not a country, yet he is the second biggest donor to the World Health Organisation (WHO). How come?
For the purpose of this week’s blog, I would like to focus on some areas where he is investing in health in the United Kingdom and how the characters working within the NHS are also working for the WHO. How deep is the connection, how influential is he, how dangerous is it?
The UK is the global playground for Life Sciences (this really means pharmaceuticals, biologicals and genomics), and Bill Gates has been quick to ensure he has secured a large share of the British health market, spreading his many tentacles far and wide. This, as you will see, is just the tip of a very sharp and dangerous iceberg. Let’s dive a bit deeper.
Gates: National Health Service
Grail — Bill Gates has a number of companies that have contracts within the NHS. Grail is an early cancer diagnostic test. Galleri Trial is a pioneering new multi-cancer test that can detect over 50 types of cancer.
Mologic — Bill Gates and George Soros joined forces to buy out the Bedford-based British developer of a lateral flow test, a rapid test that is cheap to make. The hope is to use Mologic’s tools to develop low-cost tests for tropical illnesses, allowing them to be diagnosed more quickly. With $50 billion (£36.3 billion), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will join the investment in Mologic. This announcement came shortly after Bill and Melinda announced their divorce.
Tropical Health and Education Trust — An endeavour to better understand the evidence for mutual benefits from ODA (Britain’s overseas aid budget, now part of FCDO), through the contribution of UK health partnerships to innovation in both the NHS and developing countries.
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine — specifically, Sir Christopher Whitty’s department — has also benefitted from donations from Sir Bill: a generous $40 million.
The Gates Foundation (GF) is closely aligned to many British companies, including GlaxoSmithKlein (GSK) in the form of a private global health partnership which helps finance COVAX, promoting immunisation in poor countries. The partnership has continued and includes the Vaccine Discovery Partnership in Barnard Castle, involved in Novavax production (isn’t that County Durham town where Dominic Cummings was caught during lockdown?).
Bill Gates’ ex-wife Melinda has also teamed up with Sir Patrick Vallance, past President of Research and Development at GSK and shareholder, until March 2021, to create the infamous 100 Day Mission. Similarly, GSK has close connections with the scientists on the UK’s publicly-funded Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE), whose members were responsible for the Government’s stringent lockdown and social distancing policies. Most of the names we are familiar with from Covid tyranny have close connections to the Gates Foundation. Vanessa Beeley’s excellent article, for UK Column, ‘Covid–19: The Big Pharma players behind UK Government lockdown’ goes into more depth.
In the United Kingdom, it appears Bill Gates and his cronies are running not only cancer care, dementia care, Covid tests, vaccines and therapeutics, but are also inviting, funding, training and incentivising students from underdeveloped countries to come to the UK to train in Life Sciences. The Gates Cambridge Scholarship programme was born from a gift of £159 million from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, ensuring that a global network of academic students from over 100 countries are awarded the opportunity to train in many areas such as, climate change, life sciences and computer studies. Since its first cohort, over 1,500 individuals have been awarded a scholarship.
The previous CEO of the Medicines Health and Products Regulatory Agency was Dr Ian Hudson, a once practicing paediatrician who decided to cut his teeth in pharmaceuticals with SmithKline Beecham in 1989. Having consigned the MHRA to the capable hands of Dame June Raine, Dr Hudson can now be found at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he now has a leading role on their team as Senior Advisor, Integrated Development. Could he be pulling the MHRA’s strings? The current board of the MHRA is littered with links to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
Take MHRA Non-Executive Director Raj Long:
Raj Long has considerable experience as a senior international regulatory executive in the pharmaceutical industry, combined with strategic experience as an advisor to the Department of Health & Social Care, European Union, Gates Foundation and World Health Organisation (WHO). Raj is also on the Board of the UK Health Security Agency. Raj is currently a Deputy Director for safety and pharmacovigilance at the Gates Foundation and also supports the WHO COVID–19 vaccine manufacturing taskforce. Prior to that, Raj was Consultant Advisor to the Chief Scientist of the WHO, as well as being a WHO co-lead on the COVAX Task Force on COVID–19 vaccine manufacturing and supporting other WHO committees, Vice Chair of the World Dementia Council and has provided advice to numerous expert groups and government initiatives such as the G7 Global Action Against Dementia initiative and the Accelerated Access Review with NHS England. In her executive career, Raj held very senior international regulatory roles with responsibility for licensing innovative medicines in global pharmaceutical companies such as Bristol Myers Squibb, Novartis and GE Healthcare.
Dementia is a big business and Bill Gates is keen to make sure he is fully invested. So much so that Raj Long—who incidentally has no qualifications in geriatrics, medicine or the elderly—has written the Dementia Plan for the UK, which has now been adopted by the UK Government.
In another linkage between the Gates empire and the MHRA Board, allow me to introduce another Non-Executive Board member, Haider Husain, an experienced international healthcare IT business leader with a strong technology background and experience of partnership working, combined with his work as a Panel Chair for the British Standards Institute (BSI) and non-executive experience within the NHS. Haider is the Chief Operating Officer of an international healthcare technology consultancy called Healthinnova Limited, a Non-Executive Director of Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and the Panel Chair for the Safe and Effective Use of AI in Healthcare at the British Standards Institute. Prior to this, Haider was the General Manager for Caradigm’s European population health management business and has worked for other international companies such as Microsoft, GE Healthcare and Logica.
Clearly, Bill Gates appears to have open access to our data, our health service, our diagnosis and our fate. With him enjoying an open invitation to Downing Street and having had the ear of the then Health Secretary Matt Hancock, I ask again, who is running our NHS? Mr Gates may have a ‘green agenda’, but he should perhaps be reminded that many of the British public are not as ‘green’ as they may look.
Sludge or Nudge? Behavioural Science
Have you been sludged and nudged? Have you noticed how everything and anything is being blamed on Covid–19? Are you a victim of nudge or sludge? We have all heard of the Nudge Team: the informal name for those that wish to manipulate your behaviour to suit their needs, otherwise called ‘nudge’. Nudge is a behavioural science technique that aims to influence people to make optimal decisions: nudging you to purchase a specific item, nudging you to behave in a ‘controlled’ way, cajoling you into making decisions you may not have made without the nudge.
Sludge is perhaps new to us as a term, but the underlying concept goes back almost a hundred years. William James wrote about how people’s ability to get things done is often either facilitated or hindered by their environment. William James was a leading psychologist and philosopher at the turn of the twentieth century. His contributions laid the groundwork for behavioural psychologists and philosophers, such as Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein, who published the book Nudge. Cass Sunstein went onto publish a book entitled Sludge.
Sludge is the opposite of nudge. Nudges encourage us to make what is perceived to be a better decision, whereas sludges create friction and make the process more difficult than it should be. Have you noticed when you try to share posts, you are a stopped before posting, just in case you wish to reconsider? You could argue that asking people to be more thoughtful is a good thing.
Have you opted out of organ donation? No? Perhaps it is because you don’t know how, or maybe you keep meaning to but keep putting it off. Prior to the era of opting out, we were all asked to opt in. This is a sludge, quietly making it more difficult or tiresome to opt out. Relying on laziness and lack of information, those who perform ‘sludges’ confidently project that the majority of us will either forget or just dismiss it entirely. If you would like to find out more about opting out, click here.
Opting out of sharing data is another sludge. We have been told to expect our data to be shared unless we deny the permission. But how many of us have opted out and have since discovered that we still seem to be opted in? Many are writing to us to say they have opted out but are still getting unwanted correspondence and requests for data from the NHS. Did you know you had several options to stop your GP from sharing data and stop the NHS Digital Service from sharing data? From 1 February, GP surgeries will be using a new tool for data sharing called SystmOne. Do you know about this? Have you opted out? Anyone wishing to know more about opting out can click here.
The Worried Well
How are you this week, as doctors and nurses used to ask? I hope you are well as as you are reading this. Are you able to recognise when you feel out of sorts, or do you need the reassurance of a doctor or other medical professional to confirm it to you?
I am old enough to remember the days of ‘heal thyself’, when my granny used old-fashioned remedies very successfully: so successfully that doctors were rarely consulted. That said, I am also young enough to remember being worried every time one of my kids coughed or wheezed and, I will admit, I probably did over-consult. ‘The worried well’ is a term doctors use for patients that are seen as (too) frequent attenders, always concerned about some aspect of their own health. Some may be more familiar with the term ‘paranoid hypochondriac’.
As the NHS becomes more and more inaccessible to the majority of us, we are told, ‘Look after yourself’. Doesn’t that phrase slip off the tongue nicely? How many times have we told others when bidding them goodbye, ‘Look after yourself,’ but never really thought about what it actually means? The NHS demands we all take responsibility for our own health, but they also believe we are too stupid to look after ourselves alone: too stupid to know when we are ill, too stupid to ask questions, too stupid to know what to do if they (the NHS) are not available. What better way to replace human contact than with digitisation and AI?
As I have reported on UK Column News, health apps and medical devices (regulated by the MHRA) are a big and booming business. Apps, watches, phones, tablets, computers and other devices will tell you what is wrong with you. Have we lost the ability to determine how our bodies are working? I grew up in the days when if you suspected you were pregnant, you would have to wait two weeks after a period was due, then trot off to your doctor with an obligatory urine sample to send to the local hospital lab. Then it was an anxious wait until you got the call with the results. Nowadays, not only can women ‘test’ themselves to see when they are most ‘fertile’ (I used a thermometer in my day!) but they can also tell whether they are pregnant before their own bodies tell them!
No more do we rely on our own bodies and common sense for information on how we are performing. On the contrary, we actively seek information from unreliable external sources to tell us we are sick! For some, sickness has been normalised and feeling healthy is a worry. Have you noticed how many advertisements there are on television for private doctor services, for testing facilities for pretty much every disease known to man, and for posh clinics promising to go the extra mile in double quick time?
Littered between the private health adverts are those from the NHS encouraging you to seek advice if you are worried: join the 7-million-and-counting waiting list or wait for 30 hours for an emergency ambulance. Why wouldn’t you request a test, just in case in three years’ time you may exhibit signs of dementia? What are we coming to, when we test healthy people at the expense of those who are sick? What are we coming to when we actively look for disease and diagnosis?
Do you trust yourself, your family and friends or a device, application or test that you neither need nor know of its origin? Perhaps you trust the past CEO of Tesco, Sir Terry Leahy, to decide what is in your best interests? In his capacity as Chair of ORCHA, he decides which apps are the best.
Fear is hugely damaging, and not only to mental health: it affects sleep, physical health and everyday life. It would be better to quit the apps, refuse the devices and throw away the tests. If you feel OK, you more than likely are OK.
Those in control of the narrative intend to fear, confuse, overwhelm and disrupt us. If we aren’t already sick, we are all supposed to be worried to death (even literally) that we may be sick. It is the oxygen that keeps the agenda alive. Happy and healthy people are like silver bullets to a vampire.
As we move away from allopathic medicine entirely, we find ourselves moving into the biological medicine era. Biological medicines, such as monoclonal antibodies, are often new medicines which have very serious, sometimes life-ending adverse effects. Those who are still in favour of allopathic medicines, or who rely on them, may find themselves in a position where they have to accept biological medicines as those we have become used to and trust disappear, never to be seen again. On the flip side, many who contact us at UK Column deliberately avoid all allopathic medicine in favour of herbal medicine. We will be featuring more on herbal medicine practitioners in the very near future. Watch this space and the UK Column website.
News in Brief
This week’s news in brief may be old news for regular reader’s of my blog. It appears the mainstream media are just catching up with news UK Column was reporting a year ago. Better late than never, I guess. Here are a few examples of the latest offerings from Fleet Street and TV. Perhaps if they paid more attention to UK Column, they would have reported these things earlier.
Hospital at Home
The Sunday Telegraph front page of 29 January 2023 features the NHS latest plans to cut waiting times and relieve bed blocking. Does the term Hospital At Home sound familiar? Half a million patients will be treated at home. Elderly and frail patients who fall will be treated by video link, effectively preventing a fifth of emergency admissions. With the aid of £14 billion in extra spending over the next two years, the NHS will tackle record backlogs. No longer will our elderly be afforded safe and effective care within a hospital environment; instead, community response teams will visit the patient in their home, within two hours of being called. Video links will be used to connect hospital consultants with attending ambulances.
NHS drive to reduce no-shows to help tackle long waits for care
In an attempt to reduce waiting lists, the NHS will now go full steam ahead to ensure that numbers of no-shows (people who don’t attend appointments) are reduced. You may think: if someone doesn’t turn up, will they simply not be scheduled and fall off the NHS’ radar? Currently, some local NHS Trusts are so desperate to ensure their patients turn up that free bus tickets and concessions are being offered. Rebooking will be made easier and remote appointments suggested.
At present, NHS Trusts are looking at reasons why people miss their appointments and are apparently taking steps to address them. Transport issues, childcare arrangements and time off work are being cited as the main reasons for non-attendance. However, there appears to be no mention of the millions of us who either don’t want to attend or refuse to ever attend again. Are you scared of the NHS?
World Health Organisation
The latest fear drive has begun. This time, it comes via the World Health Organisation, which updated its list of medicines that should be stockpiled to deal with nuclear and radiological emergencies. The National Stockpiles for Radiological and Nuclear Emergencies policy advice was published on 27 January 2023 as a vital preparedness and readiness tool for all WHO partners. Our very own Mark Anderson has written an excellent article here.
As many of our viewers and listeners will know, UK Column has been watching the WHO carefully, and both myself and Mark Anderson have been reporting on the behind-the-scenes negotiations and deals which may, through amending the International Health Regulations, remove all member nations’ sovereign rights as they are ordered to act in ‘lockstep’ with each other, should a global emergency be declared. Ironic, perhaps, as the UK is so desperate to regain sovereignty—we left the EU! Do our parliamentarians know of the surreptitious plans by the WHO that are afoot to strip us of just that? Do they care? UK Column cares, and we will be reporting on these developments in far more depth in the very near future.
NHS Culture of Silence: Staff too frightened to speak out fearing repercussions
A very interesting but concerning article by Sky, which set up an e-mail address for staff working within the NHS to report their concerns. A whistleblowing charity, Protect, is reporting that the majority of NHS workers who contacted them say they faced retaliation after speaking up at work. The situation was described as Orwellian. Scared to speak up fearing for their jobs, one paramedic said, “We all keep quiet”.
The charity Protect has an interesting array of high flyers on the Board, from many areas of business, including previous employment and experience with companies such as Cadbury, Schweppes, Aviva PLC, WH Smith, Channel 4, ITV, North Sea Oil and, more worryingly, the National Autistic Society (there will be another article from me in the very near future with more on autism and the role of the National Autistic Society).
This report backs up what we are seeing at UK Column. More and more NHS staff leave their jobs because of genuine concerns surrounding patient safety and working conditions. Many of those contacting us are suffering from mental illness or stress, and some are even suffering from serious adverse reactions from receiving the Covid–19 ‘vaccine’, which many say they were coerced into receiving in order to retain their job. The Guardian is reporting that four in ten doctors and dentists will leave the NHS by 2028.
Please remember to do your own research. I am merely a messenger, a signpost to areas you may like to explore further. Join your own dots, find your own truth and trust yourself. Everything you need will be provided if you have faith. Stand firm, stay true to yourself and believe no human other than yourself. Don’t be scared, be prepared.
Until next week,
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7
