UK Column Shop:—the MHRA T-shirts are being discontinued because Dame June Raine has announced her departure

Dr Tess Lawrie (on X):

If you have been harmed in any way by the Covid injections, you may wish to send June Raine a Notice of Liability before she leaves office. Raine received our urgent report on the Covid 'vaccines' in June 2021.

Despite this, she continued to enable the mass deployment of these inadequately tested, experimental and fundamentally unsafe Covid–19 injections without informed consent on the people of the UK, including on our little children, pregnant women and our most vulnerable. 

The urgent report can be found here.
