I sent the same short email* to [. . .] and later made these comments:
I am now following events in England quite closely, mainly via UK Column news from Plymouth and the writings and talks of people like Craig Murray and Peter Ford - the two dissident former ambassadors. I found the article from Swindon interesting mainly because the first statement from Salisbury Hospital was that they had admitted two people for the treatment of fentanyl poisoning. Then, when the Government came out with its Novichok scenario, the hospital quietly went back into its website and changed "fentanyl" to "substance". Brian Gerrish, of UK Column, who says he was trained in decontamination procedures while in the Navy, says the decontamination of Salisbury was a joke. Also ludicrous is the suggestion that members of the public, if they suspect they have been contaminated by a "deadly nerve agent", send their clothes to the laundry and clean surfaces with baby wipes. Just about the only good news to come out of Britain recently is that less than 25% of people (if I remember correctly) still trust the mainstream media. I am certainly glad I am no longer in the media, and having to report all the lies and obfuscations. When I retired I was looking forward to listening to the BBC World Service every morning. I think it took me about two weeks to realize it was feeding me propaganda, and to switch off. Likewise, I cancelled my subscription to The Guardian, which is also hopelessly compromised. Every week, while in the supermarket, I glance at the International Express, but have bought it only once. Meanwhile, I am ploughing through Dan Davies' 600-page biography of Jimmy Savile and sending encouraging postcards to Melanie Shaw - the Beechwood Children's Home sexual abuse survivor who has been kept in solitary confinement by the powers that be. But not to worry. A BBC writer says that if it all gets too much for you, tarot may be able to provide comfort.
In many respects, the situation in New Zealand is probably not much better. We, too, have "gender fluidity" and "neurodiversity", and squabbles over political correctness and affirmative action for immigrants/racial minorities. At one stage, the Government announced it was going to train the White Helmets in Jordan. I wrote to the ministers concerned and pointed out that the White Helmets were the PR arm of al-Qaeda, and operated only in terrorist-controlled areas, but received no reply - which I suspect is often the case these days. There was a time when, if you wrote to the Government, you always received a reply. Meanwhile, the furore over the MMR vaccine has resurfaced, after two Samoan toddlers dropped dead within minutes of being vaccinated. Then more people came forward and said that their children had also died. Someone in Western Australia put up a billboard that read, "Do you know what is in a vaccine?". The Australian Medical Association reacted in fury, and the offending billboard has, I believe, been taken down. The censorship, coercion, and general shaming and blaming, are absolutely appalling.
As in many other incidents – I am tempted to call them “stunts” – there are so many anomalies in the Skripal case, one’s credulity is stretched to breaking point. For a start, the operative who applied the Novichok to Mr Skripal’s door handle would himself have had to be wearing a hazmat suit – something that would have made him rather conspicuous in Salisbury. I think it was John Pilger who described the whole affair, which has now been compounded by its Amesbury sequel, as “monstrously stupid”. But notably, people like John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Seymour Hersh, and Jonathan Cook – journalists of the “old school” who actually ask questions and who were once highly regarded – are now excoriated for not immediately falling into line with the official narrative.

From Samoa News, 14.07.18:
Rare condition suspected in Samoa children who died after MMR vaccinations
Auckland, NEW ZEALAND — Two children who died after being immunised in Samoa are suspected to have had a rare life-threatening immunodeficiency disorder.
Their parents decided to speak publicly after media reports on their deaths after being given the vaccine against measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) in Samoa.
A one-year-old girl died within a few minutes of being vaccinated. Two hours later, another one-year-old died. Authorities are investigating the deaths.
Karl and Christine Laulu told TVNZ they were devastated to hear of those deaths. In April, the Laulus lost their daughter Alana-Rae, who had been taken from Samoa to Starship Hospital in Auckland. Two years earlier, they lost their son Jamie Ray. Both had been given the MMR vaccine.
They said experts discovered their daughter may have had a rare life-threatening immunodeficiency. It was likely her brother did too.
"Once the MMR injection was given to them, their bodies went into hypodrive," Karl Laulu told TVNZ. "Children are supposed to be the ones that put the parents to rest. So unfortunate to have this happen."
Dr Helen Petousis-Harris, of the University of Auckland's Immunisation Advisory Centre said the Laulus' case was very separate from what happened last week.
"There are people who shouldn't receive the MMR vaccine," she said, noting New Zealand has established pre-screening checks to ensure the vaccine is only given to suitable candidates.
