The Cure Is Worse Than The Disease

The Proof Is In The Data

“Joel Smalley returns to the Pandemic Podcast with a clear conclusion – the ‘cure’ is worse than the disease and that the proof is in the data.

Back in February 2021 Joel’s first presentation on the Pandemic Podcast was met with much controversy as he demonstrated early warning signs that the vaccines may have increased overall mortality. He also demonstrated how non-Covid factors such as lockdowns and denial of healthcare likely impacted overall mortality during the first stages of the pandemic.

In today’s follow up episode Joel is back to reveal what the latest data shows when the links between the vaccine rollout and mortality are examined across various different countries and territories.

Joel Smalley is a former quantitative derivatives trader, entrepreneur and tech leader who has analysed mortality and various other COVID metrics for every country affected by the pandemic. His analysis has supported numerous expert submissions to regulatory health authorities and legal cases brought against governments and their agents.”

Here’s Joel’s appearance on the Pandemic Podcast in February.

The Awake Undertaker

Dan Astin-Gregory talks with John O’Looney of Milton Keynes Family Funeral Services, about what he’s experienced in his role as Undertaker in the last 18 months. [The conversation starts at 00:25]

My guest today is a funeral director with 15 years’ industry experience, who has been running his own family business in Milton Keynes for the last five years. Because of all he has seen over the last 18 months, John O’Looney is now prepared to take the potential hit on his business by speaking up.

While other funeral directors have refused to wash and dress the deceased, John has continued to provide this service even for those listed as dying from Covid-19. At 53, suffering from asthma, and unable to obtain PPE at the height of the pandemic, John should have been in a vulnerable position. However, he has yet to suffer any consequences from continuing to provide this key service so many families have been denied.

In a YouTube comment that has gone viral despite his account being removed, John said: ‘Last year the death rate was totally normal. In fact, it was a little bit down on 2019 and towards Christmas many of my colleagues were actually turning their fridges off because there was no-one dying. We began vaccinating on January 6 locally and the death rate went through the roof almost immediately — within the same week, and for three months. I’ve never known a death rate like it in 15 years as an undertaker.’

Join me today at 5pm BST when I will be finding out much more about John’s experiences since the start of the pandemic, and what he believes lies behind what he says is a clearly inflated death rate.
