Charles McKay was right

Sure, he concentrated upon financial markets but delusions and madness of crowds aren’t limited to those:

Measles cases rose by 300 per cent in Europe last year as parents across the Continent shunned vaccines.

More than 20,000 people were infected as the disease rebounded from a record low to cause 35 deaths, according to World Health Organisation figures that reveal the damaging after-effects of the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine scare.

Young people in Britain who are part of the unprotected “Wakefield cohort” — named after the disgraced former doctor Andrew Wakefield, who raised fears that the triple vaccine caused autism — have been urged to get vaccinated before trips to countries such as Italy.

Sigh.

  1. Young people in Britain who are part of the unprotected “Wakefield cohort” — named after the disgraced former doctor Andrew Wakefield, who raised fears that the triple vaccine caused autism — have been urged to get vaccinated before trips to countries such as Italy.

    Oh yes, I remember that fine piece of leadership from Blair at the time, when he refused to confirm whether his sprog had been given the MMA vaccine. Which meant he hadn’t, of course. No doubt his hag of a wife made that decision.

  2. This is all Wakefield’s fault?

    When legions of unvaccinated arrive in the West from Shitholistan daily?

  3. This could have all been nipped in the bud at the time. All they Department of Health had to do was so, nope all of this MMR stuff is nonsense, but sure if you’d prefer to do it as single vaccines, no problem.

    Instead we’ve got an unknown number of children that have gone unvaccinated because of the typical arrogance of the health lobby, even if the concerns were fantasy.

    This coupled with the attitude that if your vaccine does fuck your child over (as happens on rare occasions) then you would struggle to get anything other than the bare minimum. That was changed after Thalidomide as I recall.

    As others have said, great leadership from Tony Bliar and his cnut of a wife as usual.

  4. Ecks, and perhaps the big problem from these imports is resistant TB. Pity it’s not a selective strain that only affects the Lily Allens of this world.

    BTW, is there an MMT jab one can get to prevent the affliction that has deranged Murphy?

  5. The problem with using three separate vaccines (apart from the non-trivial one of cost) is that it’s hard enough to get most parents to bring their child in for a single jab, let alone three separate jabs.

  6. CM

    It’s the notion of “choice” that’s important in that proposal above? They have to have it done (herd, no change from the past?), but how is their choice, if they have doubts about a particular form?

    They can take the time to do 3 separately or save time having just the 1. It’s being dictated to at every turn by imbecile bureaucrats that many struggle with?

  7. …and if all the time and money that was wasted going after Wakefield and claiming that the vaccines were safer than water, had been spent investigating why we have an increasing number of autism cases!

    They should learn that being bullies does not work, and they should be open and transparent then we would trust them.

    N.B. I am an Ex-Pharmaceutical chemist…
