COVID-19 and Brave New World, the first two volumes collecting our articles on the UK biosecurity state, are available as pdf downloads for £10 from our website. If we made them available as these print-on-demand books, would you be interested?
architectsforsocialhousing.co.uk/2021/03/04/bra… Image
All these articles are available to read for free on the ASH website, as are the other 300 or so articles we've published over the past 6 years. The pdf files and printed books are for those fed up with reading from a screen, and/or who want to support our research.
The books are A4 format, printed in premium B&W ink on 80gsm white paper with a softback matt cover. COVID-19 has 287pp, Brave New World 204pp. We'll probably price them at £30 plus postage and packaging, and we'll throw in the electronic pdfs with all the links for free. Image
Thanks for the interest. Both these collections are now available to print on demand. Perfect coffee-table books for an unmuzzled, socially-intimate gathering of untracked, unvaccinated people who don't want you arrested for having a drink with friends.

The printers have done a really nice job on these. I've included as many of your responses as possible, as they're far more intelligent, thoughtful and careful than the screams and threats of the COVID-faithful who try to silence us. Thank you for reading.

Today, the worst Parliament in British history will vote whether to renew the Coronavirus Act 2020 for the second time. But what powers does this hastily-passed legislation grant the Government, and is any Member of Parliament voting for their continuation fit for office? Image
Presented without an impact assessment or evidence of proportionality, the 348 pages, 102 Provisions and 29 Schedules of the Coronavirus Bill had just 1 week of reading and 3 days of debate before being made into law on 25 March. Its powers include the following Provisions:
10. Modifies mental health and mental capacity legislation to allow the requirements for the detention and treatment of patients to be satisfied by the opinion of a single doctor. Extends the time for which a patient can be detained from 72 hours to 120 hours prior to sectioning.

AstraZeneca has been caught lying about data yet again. On Monday, the Data and Safety Monitoring Board expressed concern AZ may have included outdated information from its COVID-19 vaccine trial, which may have provided an incomplete view of its efficacy.
nih.gov/news-events/ne…
Last November, it was revealed that AstraZeneca’s claim that its vaccine has an efficacy of 90% was based on a trial only administered to individuals up to 55 years of age, a demographic with a far lower chance of developing symptoms requiring a vaccine.
ft.com/content/4583fb…
And three years ago, in April 2018, it was revealed that AstraZeneca had paid €17.9 million in secret payments to ‘independent’ healthcare professionals to endorse their products, including the use of vaccines. So why would anything have changed now?

Administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine has been halted in 16 countries, including Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Norway and Ireland, due to safety concerns. But what do we know about the funding, development and authorisation of the vaccine?
The AstraZeneca vaccine was developed by the Oxford Vaccine Group, whose Director, Professor Andrew Pollard, is also the Chair of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation that advises UK health departments on vaccines.

Pollard is also a member of the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) Scientific Advisory Committee, which advises the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) that guarantees the safety of vaccines in the UK.

The Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine for COVID-19 has been granted temporary authorisation for use in the UK under recent changes to the Human Medicines Regulations 2012; but its long-term effects are still unknown, so it is unapproved and experimental. But what does this mean?
The European Medicines Agency has published 'Human medicine European public assessment report (EPAR): COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca'. This was last updated on 18 February, and so represents a summary of the latest data on this product.
ema.europa.eu/en/medicines/h…
4 clinical trials of 24,000 people across the UK, Brazil and South Africa showed a 59.5% reduction in the number of symptomatic COVID-19 cases in people given two doses of the vaccine, with the second dose given 4-12 weeks after the first. This equates to around 60% 'efficacy'.

Lockdown restrictions are justified by evidence of infection with SARS-CoV-2 and deaths from COVID-19 produced by RT-PCR assays. But how did a technique for transcribing RNA into DNA and then amplifying it turn a virus with the mortality rate of influenza into a global pandemic?
On 17 January, 2020, the World Health Organisation, as part of its recommended protocols for RT-PCR tests, published the Corman-Drosten paper, ‘Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) by real-time RT-PCR’.
eurosurveillance.org/content/10.280…
This paper, which was published a week later in the journal Eurosurveillance, recommended 45 exponential cycles of thermal amplification of swab samples for SARS-CoV-2, which is far higher than the number of cycles at which infectious virus can be reliably detected.

Having a vaccine, like taking a test or wearing a mask or using a tracking app or giving your details or observing lockdown, is NOT a personal decision. It contributes to the consensus on which the UK biosecurity state is removing our collective freedoms.
dailymail.co.uk/debate/article…
Peter Hitchens, despite being poorly qualified to fulfil the role, became a spokesman for the resistance to biosecurity regulations. His cowardly decision to take the vaccine is one of immense selfishness and irresponsibility that I hope will not justify others doing the same.
This is the trouble with resistance to the biosecurity state forming around individuals and celebrities without political or moral commitment who view these regulations purely as an infringement on their personal liberties and lifestyles.
