Debi Evans Blog: 8 November 2022

The cascade of information continues. The word ‘emergency’ appears to have been normalised into what we would have called, in years gone by, ‘trivia and nonsense’. For me, the word ‘emergency’ means ‘immediate help required’ — not in an hour, five hours or even 30 hours. Now means now. However, the word ‘now’ appears to have been truncated by the NHS to ‘no’.

Furthermore, the word ‘emergency’ appears to be bandied about inconsequentially to the point where many of us appear to have become immune to it. Perhaps we have normalised the word ‘emergency’. A friend’s son said he couldn’t allow his mum drive him to school because of the climate ‘emergency’.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, the definition of ‘emergency’ (with my emphasis in bold) is:

1. An unforeseen combination of circumstances or the resulting state that calls for immediate action. 2 An urgent need for assistance or relief — example: The mayor declared a state of emergency after a flood.

Immediately, my attention is turned again toward those with vaccine injuries, many of them who have been seeking help for symptoms and conditions that we, as medical professionals, would deem urgent conditions and emergencies. However, for them the word ‘emergency’ does not appear to apply. The process of ascertaining why and how they became injured can wait; what is needed—with urgency—is help and answers.

The word ‘emergency’ appears to have become conditional and only applicable if governments and global organisations such as the World Health Organisation et al. deem it so. In my opinion, those with life-limiting, life-changing and life-debilitating illness presenting suddenly are medical emergencies. Obviously, those driving the narrative think otherwise.


Updates on my inquiries and interviews

After highlighting the company VacZine Analytics on UK Column News to ask for our viewers and listeners to deep dive on Dr John Savopolous, the founder of the company, the VacZine Twitter account posted our news and added a cheeky winky emoji. I have replied to them, asking for an interview, but they don’t seem to want to accept. In fact, they have gone very quiet.

Pharmaceutical intelligence—which is VacZine Analytics' field—is my new pet interest. Thank you to all on the UK Column forums and those who have e-mailed me with more information on the elusive Dr Savopolous. It seems he has fingers in many pies and may have a son involved.

However, other than a few articles from the early noughties, there is little information on the man or his company. Those of you who saw me feature this company on the news (at the link at beginning of this segment) may remember that I referred to a ‘summer brochure’ on their website. I even highlighted it with a red arrow, and a day after our news went out, so did the link to the company's summer brochure, which is now removed from their website; see the 9 November show notes. I am heartened that I have copies of it to refer to. Meanwhile the search continues.

Someone else who has gone very quiet is the BBC Disinformation Chief Correspondent, Marianna Spring. I did manage to catch up on her latest Panorama documentary about conspiracy theorists and disaster deniers. It was very interesting. Keen to share our information, I decided to tweet her to ask if she would like to do an interview. For someone who professes her eagerness to speak to all people of all persuasions and opinions, Marianna spring appears reluctant when given a genuine opportunity. I wonder why.

Fran Adamson, a highly qualified and experienced NHS nurse whom I had the privilege of interviewing, has received so many uplifting messages of support for speaking out about what is happening in NHS Scotland. She has asked me to thank you all. It has meant a huge amount to her, and she is very comforted by the kindness she has been shown by so many.

Charlet Crichton, who co-founded and runs the UK CV Family group for the vaccine injured, has been overwhelmed by all the messages of support. She, likewise, has asked me to convey her thanks. She says that words don’t express what it means to them all. As the donations rise on their GoFundMe page, all of us here at UK Column, as well as the people at UK CV Family, want to thank you all so much for your generosity. We will continue to promote the fundraising page, so please share it where you can.

The group, now numbering over 800, continues to struggle to get the help, advice and support that the vaccine-injured need so desperately. They are hugely encouraged by the love and kindness they are witnessing. Knowing that so many of us care about them and are hearing their messages and stories means the world. It is vital we listen to their message, for theirs is a message of warning to all of us. We ignore it at our peril.

Dr Henrietta Hughes, the UK Government's recently-appointed Patient Safety Commissioner, has been located. Well, perhaps I should correct that by writing that her Head of Communications and Engagement, Rachel Downey, has been located. As our regular audience will know, I have been searching for Dr Hughes for a few months, but to no avail. I was surprised, but pleased nonetheless, to receive a communication from her office.

Hoping to be able to facilitate an urgent meeting between Dr Hughes and the vaccine-injured, I emailed Rachel back with a genuine request. I did not push for an interview, I though it best to keep the line of communication open, in the hope that we could arrange a private urgent meeting.

Sadly, this has not happened. With permission from UK CV Family, I am therefore publishing the e-mail that I received from the Patient Safety Commissioner's Office. You will easily see from it that there is nothing behind this grand title. I would add that the e-mail you see below was sent to me in eye-popping 20-point font. I have reduced it for ease of reading. Rachel Downey is a former journalist and was Editor of the Nursing Times before becoming Head of Strategy and Insight for the communications effort at the Department of Health and Social Care.

Hello Debi, 

Thank you for your email. We are currently in the process of setting up the Office of the Patient Safety Commissioner and the supporting infrastructure — we don’t even have a website yet! Therefore we will come back to you once fully established and discuss a potential interview with Henrietta. 

Thank you for your patience.

Kind regards, 

Rachel Downey

Head of Communications and Engagement

Office of the Patient Safety Commissioner

As I understand it, then, there is no Patient Safety Commissioner's Office. It appears that this appointment was made without any of the necessary infrastructure required in order to offer a service. It is just another ‘show pony’. It appears, despite the publicity and recommendations made in summer 2020 in Baroness Cumberlege's Do No Harm report, that the patient safety commissioner is just a title. She is unavailable for those who need to talk to her.


MHRA Board Meeting

I have my ticket ready for the November Board meeting of the MHRA (or, in a more apt anagram, HARM), on 15 November, from 10.00 to 12.40. Do join me. It would be welcome if Stephen Lightfoot, Chair of the Board, were to announce a record of public attendance. Watch and listen carefully: loose lips sink ships, and I have lost count of the number of ships that the MHRA's great and good have sunk with careless comments.

It can be quite nauseating watching the self-congratulatory quips and pats on the back all round. Feel free to ask a question, but don’t expect an immediate answer. I sent MHRA CEO Dame June Raine a Freedom of Information request regarding the MHRA's plans to approve Moderna's Covid-19 injection for babies from six months and upwards as of Christmas 2022. I haven’t received an answer as yet. But please show them we are watching them; numbers matter. I look forward to seeing you all there—metaphorically speaking, of course.


Effects of Cyber Attack on the NHS

Remember the cyber-attack that wiped out the NHS systems three months ago? The Independent reports that the effects of this are now being felt across the NHS. Patients’ records have gone missing, safety has been compromised and medication doses are at risk of being missed. Mental health patients’ records and safeguarding alerts have not been available in some trusts (NHS local areas) since 4 August. The NHS software provider is called Advanced; it is a company that was hit by a ransomware attack which targeted care records.

Where are your records? Are you confident that your medical records are in safe hands?


NHS plans to cut weekend and evening surgery

To relieve pressure on overwhelmed services, many NHS trusts are planning to cut back on weekend and evening surgery. This will also include IVF treatment in some areas. Will we be seeing the rollout of ‘community hubs’ paused due to public spending cuts? In a desperate attempt to save money, and in anticipation of huge public spending cuts, NHS Trusts are reporting that they are being set up to fail as they struggle with growing demand for a service they cannot provide. Currently, there are over 132,000 vacancies in NHS England, which equates to 10% of the workforce. Although a 15-year draft plan has been drawn up, it will not address the immediacy of this winter and next year.


NHS prostate cancer treatments

We appear to have normalised the rising statistics for cancer in the last couple of years. I recall no time in the past where the figure of one in two of the population being expected to receive a diagnosis of cancer was talked about. In fact, on the contrary, cancer numbers previous to the ‘plandemic’ were reducing, and the prognoses for many cancers were much improved.

Currently, we are still seeing reports of a decline in cancer diagnosis—yet we are testing more than ever. Though we are seeing a decline in cancer diagnosis, clearly here we are seeing a huge rise in treatment for prostate cancer. I am speaking to many people who are reporting seeing an increase in cancer in their circles. Something isn’t quite adding up. 


Mouth cancer cases skyrocket

A report in the Independent states that according to the Oral Health Foundation, 8,864 people in the UK were diagnosed with the mouth cancer last year—up by 36 per cent on a decade ago, with 3,034 people losing their life to it within the year. Why? Smoking and drinking are of course at the top of the list of suspects. However, no mention is made of the Covid-19 injection. 


Bionic Man

The NHS is going to be offering bionic arms to all amputees. Yes, you read that correctly: all amputees. As long as patients have enough of their upper arm left to send signals from the bionic arm to the brain to create movement, they will now all be eligible for state-of-the-art technology controlled by electrical brain signals. Bristol-based Open Bionics will provide its bespoke 3D prosthetic arms after attracting £1.5 million each from Williams F1 Team's Foresight Williams and Ananda Impact Ventures, with further funding from Rathbone Nominees; overall, the funds total £4.6 million. 

While I am sure that this will be a very welcome move for all those affected, I cannot wonder how NHS England CEO Amanda Pritchard is getting so excited when she knows her budget is likely to be slashed in the coming weeks. And with over 7 million on the waiting list to start treatment, how will those with vaccine injuries take this news? I am hearing of parents on benefits with no savings whose children are suffering from serious adverse reactions from Covid-19 injection but who cannot get an MRI scan for their child suspected of suffering with myocarditis for 8 months. This is urgent

Bionic arms will become ‘normal’, but how long before the whole body has been augmented and modified? The Ministry of Defence's notorious ‘Dawn of a New Paradigm’ comes to mind. UK Column News has featured this document in the past. Let’s revisit it.


Moderna — impacting human health

Moderna is on a mission. As you read this article, please remember that Moderna is opening a manufacturing plant here in the UK. Moderna is very heavily invested in Britain, and the Government is delighted to fill Moderna's coffers at our expense.  

This link will take you to Moderna's latest ESG report, for 2021. The company promises to deliver mRNA science to create a new generation of transformative medicines for patients. It focuses on accelerating the development of ‘safe’ effective mRNA medicines worldwide (my emphasis in bold below):

We believe Moderna could become one of the most impactful healthcare companies in the world. A strand of mRNA can bind science, technology and humanity together to build a healthier planet. I invite you to read this report and learn about our progress across our Environmental, Social and Governance commitments. There is much work to do, and we are grateful for your engagement in this journey to help us become the most impactful version of Moderna over the next several decades

Stéphane Bancel, CEO, Moderna

By 2025, Moderna will have 15 vaccine programmes targeting emerging or neglected infectious diseases. Are they obtaining their information from pharmaceutical intelligence companies such as DataMonitor or VacZine Analytics? We have previously reported on the notion of Disease X. Disease X is an unknown ‘virus’ which, we are told, there will be no treatment for. Moderna appears to have been given a crystal ball and is already preparing for an unknown disease. Currently, the Moderna portfolio includes HIV, TB and Malaria. However, I would counsel readers to keep an eye out for hype around Cytomegalovirus. You heard it here first.

Keep an eye on Moderna, and don’t forget it is directly linked with and in partnership with the International Aids Vaccine Initiative (IAVI), the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Moderna has it all: Moderna Rainbow, Moderna University, Moderna Benefits, Moderna AI, and even a Moderna Science Centre. Without doubt, the incentives (see p. 21) that this company offers its employees would be considered gold standard by many. That said, Moderna provides pretty much everything to keep its employees happy. 


CRISPR death confirmed

CRISPR is, in simple terms, a pair of gene scissors. Some call it designer genetics, genetic therapy or gene editing. I would call it interfering with Creation, and dangerous. At best, it is uncertain, and according to a medical ethicist, Arthur Caplan from New York University, “we are out the far edge of experimentation” with it.

This warning would appear to have been borne out after a single volunteer involving a gene-editing technique has suddenly died. Terry Horgan (27) had Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Now, scientists are trying to work out what happened. Did CRISPR play a part? 


Ambulance delays

UK Column News has been reporting for many months on the severe delays within the ambulance service. We are in contact with paramedics who are horrified at what they are witnessing and what they are being asked to do. Many are highly qualified and have been in the profession since leaving school, and they feel they are too late in life to have a complete career change. Many like Fran, our brave nurse in Scotland, dread going to work and can’t sleep at night. In Scotland, we are hearing of hospitals with ‘paramedic corridors’ where patients are unloaded from the vehicle and are looked after by a paramedic in a hospital corridor. This appears to be happening nationwide.

The latest reports are showing that delays are still happening and the situation is getting worse. Recently, we have heard of reports of the elderly having to wait 29 hours. Although according to the Daily Mail, many are having to wait up to 40 hours for an ambulance, only to have to wait upon arrival at hospital in a corridor or to be left in the ambulance parked outside Accident & Emergency. It is estimated that in July alone, 40,000 may have been harmed as a result of waiting more than an hour. In case anyone has forgotten, a stroke victim will be downgraded to Ambulance Alert 2 despite needing immediate attention; the Golden Hour is critically important when it comes to a stroke.  


Children, GPs and Antidepressants

GPs are breaching medical guidelines by prescribing antidepressants for children as young as 11 who cannot get other help for their mental health problems, new government-funded research reveals. The report admits that the use of antidepressants in children is a controversial one. However, they go no further and appear to favour approval of them in many circumstances.

As I have reported many times, the 2019 NHS Long Term Plan makes young people’s mental health a priority. Currently, there are more and more of our youngsters who are struggling with anxiety and depression. Lockup (sic) has a lot to answer for. Most youngsters are unable to access the help they need and many more wait months for treatment. 

According to the latest statistics, one in six have a diagnosable mental health condition. A total of 4,127 children were admitted to inpatient mental health care in 2019/20. With emotional disorders, anxiety and depression on the rise, the demand for support will surely outstrip supply. Is that an excuse to chemically cosh our children with heavy-duty antidepressants? 

Meanwhile, the future appears to be in the digital: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for kids via an app. Yes really, this is the future. 


Nurses vote to walk out en masse

The Royal College of Nursing has voted in favour of a mass walkout. Personally, as a trained nurse, I am horrified. No matter what the reason, I would never have gone on strike and abandoned my those in my care. When I started my training back in the mid-1970s, I did not sign up for the money—which, when I started was £1,100 per annum, and even then we got small deductions for accommodation at the Nurses' Home (those were the days). With its 300,000 members, the RCN is demanding that nurses receive a pay rise of 5% above inflation, which is currently running at 12.3%. 

I was interested to read this article in the Daily Mail. Take note of the picture of masked nurses outside Downing Street. Consider the waiting list of over 7 million; hospitals are allegedly overwhelmed. So with a harsh winter expected, it is patients that will be affected. Will the public be sympathetic to those angels they clapped for a couple of years ago, or will they pick up their pots and pans to bang them in disgust this time? You wouldn’t find me outside on the picket line at a hospital; I would be inside, looking after my patients. I didn’t become a nurse to walk out on my patients. 


£500 million promised to Adult Social Discharge Fund gone missing

After the government’s pledge to free up hospital beds by moving thousands of elderly inpatients into care facilities within the community, they will apparently have to stay where they are after all for the time being. The sum announced by the then Health Secretary, Dr Thérèse Coffey, of £500 million appears to have been delayed in transit and will not arrive in time to free up the hospital beds that the NHS says it will need.

Out of the 100,000 beds within the NHS, it is thought that 10,000 are currently filled by elderly patients who no longer need a clinical setting but have nowhere to go. The NHS Confederation is, of course, blaming government and the chaos that the brief but significant Truss administration left in its wake. Whoever’s fault it was, the effects will be felt by the most vulnerable. 


King Charles' coronation set to be a bank holiday in Scotland

The rest of the country is expected to follow suit, but Scotland is first out of the blocks, declaring the day of the Coronation a bank holiday (the British term for a public holiday). Get planning now. It's not 1953, and I don’t intend on wasting all day indoors watching the TV. 


Earthquakes and Dutchsinse

Many of you will know that I keep a close eye on volcanoes and earthquakes. I was delighted to see an earthquake witness in Italy talking live to the BBC and mentioning Dutchsinse, who has the most incredible ability to be able to predict earthquakes with alarming accuracy. There is a lot of solar activity that impacts the seismic activity seen here on earth. Keep an eye on Dutch; he is rarely wrong. Do you have an earthquake plan? If you think the UK is immune, you’d be wrong. Be prepared.

For those of you who may not know, I do a live weekly interview/chat, recorded on a Thursday evening and broadcast a little later, with the lovely Jesse Zurawell for his show Perspective on TNT Radio. Jesse is extremely well researched and is himself vaccine-injured. We often put the world to rights and discuss what is going on in each other’s countries. I am delighted that he will be speaking to some of the vaccine-injured in the UK, so watch out for that.

Eyes open, and ears to the ground. Once again, thank you for all your marvellous information and words of encouragement. A big thank you to our editors, Josie and Alex, for their help in getting this weekly blog published, and to Rob for designing the new blog image. In the spirit of the maligned Richard D. Hall, question everything, and believe nothing unless you check it yourself. Until next week, Debi.
