I AM more than a little confused by Siobhan Baillie’s message in SNJ, June 9, still referring to the Stroud Info Hub on the High Street as an “Anti-Vax Stall,” writes Marcus Blackett

Clearly, in her reply to my long letter a couple of months ago, she said she “appreciated what we set out to achieve”, and appeared to concede that she stands by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) (Case Ref: SB7936) whose resolution clearly states that medical interventions are non-mandatory.

I go on to explain in my letter that I am not anti-vaccine, having chosen to have my own children vaccinated with the measles vaccine before they were teenagers.

(I specifically asked for them to have the individual vaccine and not the MMR jab.)

I also recommend them to have a tetanus injection, and I make sure my own tetanus jab is up-to-date too.

Therefore, I have demonstrated with action in my own life that I am not anti-anything, but I am pro-choice.

It is very confusing where our MP stands, as she says one thing to me and another in public.

On one hand, she is telling us that the vaccine is not mandatory, and on the other, she wants “to consider trusted information for people who have concerns”.

The Stroud Info Hub, if she ever chose to visit, has a wealth of trusted information, much of it from reputable peer-reviewed sources.

It is merely doing what the government are failing to do - ie providing intelligent citizens with all the arguments, not least from all the scientific and medical experts whose views have been systematically silenced - to enable people

to reach an informed decision about the Covid injection.

If the government (and Siobhan Baillie MP especially) were doing their job properly, we would not have to be there at all.

If a reminder is necessary of what the duty of a member of parliament is, it is to relay to the House the concerns of a considerable number of her constituents about the experimental injection, known as a Covid jab.

We are very concerned by the actions of her government on all matters Covid (too many to list here).

Today, for example, when Matt Hancock was asked by Jeremy Hunt recently why it took SAGE until May 2020 to discuss the possibility of a non-lockdown response to Covid, his reply was “I don’t know”.

This is just one of hundreds of typical responses to this crisis.

If he was asked why children, who have more chance of being hit by lightning than dying from Covid, should have the jab, would his response be similar?
