Why is there no debate about ‘leaky’ vaccines?

There have been concerns in the medical world about ‘leaky’ vaccines, like the Covid ones, for years. So why are experts who are coming forward to raise concerns either being silenced or suffering character assassination by the media?

In the name of humanitarianism, our response to Covid is crushing solidarity

Faced with the pandemic, we increasingly turn on each other, we prioritise ourselves over the foreigner, we set parent against child, we pit the vaccinated against the unvaccinated – all in the name of a bogus humanitarianism and solidarity.

AOC’s ‘tax the rich’ gown isn’t a threat. It is designer protest meant to dull class struggle

A few years hence, the woman whose gown said “Tax the rich” will be all the more credible, and useful to the elite, when she subtly changes tune and demands it is time to “Stop the attacks on the rich”.

On child vaccines, the experts are suddenly reluctant to follow ‘the science’

In the rancour over child vaccinations, we have been given a fleeting peek behind the curtain of official medical debate to see the uncertainty that has been actively concealed from us. “The science” is not quite as solid as it seems.

Jewish Chronicle’s libel payouts were a small price to pay for smearing Corbyn and the left

The press regulator cannot take meaningful action against the Jewish Chronicle because to do so would pull the rug from under the antisemitism narrative that destroyed Corbyn and is now being used by Starmer to purge Labour of the remnants of the left.

Where best to ride out the climate apocalypse? The billionaires’ bunker fantasies go mainstream

If the super rich are pondering where to build their bunkers or which bits of space to colonise to escape the coming climate collapse, we are being conditioned in a similarly deranged, if cut-price, way. New studies are assessing the countries best placed to ride out the catastrophe.

Craig Murray’s jailing is the latest move in a battle to snuff out independent journalism

The supreme court’s refusal to hear Craig Murray’s appeal against his unprecedented conviction for ‘jigsaw identification’ means the British state is now effectively credentialising journalists. Only corporate journalists will be safe from state retribution.

What happened to Glenn Greenwald? Trump happened – and put the left’s priorities to the test

By fixating on Trump, elements of the left have drifted into worryingly authoritarian ways of thinking – sometimes openly, more often implicitly – as a bulwark against the return of Trump or anyone like him.

Was there a Wuhan lab leak? An inquiry won’t dig out the truth. It will deepen the deception

No meaningful lessons will be learnt about what really happened in Wuhan. Maintaining the illusion of truth will continue to take precedence over uncovering the truth.

Dominic Cummings is our Machiavelli. With Brexit, lies served him. Now the truth does

Cummings is the Machiavelli of our times. His self-serving honesty and self-criticism were perfectly calibrated to rehabilitate his image, win over doubters and stick the knife more deeply into Boris Johnson.

Jewish groups that aid Israel’s war crimes can’t deny all responsibility for those crimes

Pro-Israel Jewish groups want to treat us all like Corbyn, demonising us as antisemites unless we fall silent even as Israel once again brutalises Palestinians.

Ignore Starmer’s moral posturing. He’s the one we should blame for stoking antisemitism

Keir Starmer is not seeking to ‘de-escalate’ the ‘tensions’ causing bloodshed thousands of miles away in the Middle East. Rather, he is fuelling those very same tensions, escalating them, in his own back yard.

We can defeat the corporate media’s war to snuff out independent journalism

Constant acts of intimidation and violence by political and media elites to crush media pluralism in the name of ‘democratic values’ serve only to further expose the hypocrisy and bad faith of the corporate media and its hired hands.

Boris Johnson’s lies don’t harm him because the political system is more corrupt than he is

The British establishment can risk making Boris Johnson vulnerable only because the establishment interests he represents are no longer vulnerable.

In our hurry to conquer nature and death, we have made a new religion of science

We are not conquerors of our bodies, of the planet, of the universe – and if we imagine we are, we will soon find out that the battle we’re waging is one we can never hope to win.

The news media offers wall-to-wall propaganda every day. We only notice when a royal dies

The wall-to-wall propaganda we are being subjected to on the death of a royal may look exceptional but is in fact entirely routine. It is simply that in normal times the propaganda is better masked, wrapped in the illusion of choice and variety.

We are living through a time of fear – not just of the virus, but of each other

Just as free speech is being shut down on the grounds that we must not offend, so the right to protest is being shut down on the grounds that we must not disturb.
