Midazolam, morphine and death: The truth
One journalist's journey to wake up the mainstream
By Jacqui Deevoy
THIS time last year, I had the privilege and misfortune to be in possession of quite possibly the biggest news story in decades. It has been described as “the biggest scandal in living history”.
But it was a story not a single national newspaper would touch: the truth about the culling of the elderly in NHS facilities: thousands whose deaths were promptly hastened with ‘end-of-life’ protocols, all in the name of Covid, their lives snuffed out by lethal cocktails of morphine and Midazolam.
Within months of the first whistleblower coming to me, I had all the evidence. I went to the papers – to 28 editors. Tumbleweed.
I chased and eventually had two meetings. Both editors agreed that the story was front-page news. Then, after a bit of email ping pong… silence.
One editor has ignored all my follow-up emails for almost a year since. The other said he just didn’t really have time to deal with it. Something wasn’t right.
I really didn’t want to go the alternative route but I had to get the word out. Two websites and several internet radio and TV stations gave me a platform but it was the people who read the papers and watched TV that I wanted to reach.
So I turned the story into a film: ‘A Good Death?’ It premiered in December 2021 and is one of Ickonic Media’s most-watched films, having been seen by hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. But it still wasn’t reaching the people I wanted it to reach.
Five months on, enter Maajid Nawaz. As an ex-LBC presenter, he was the nearest to mainstream I felt I was going to get. After a two-hour meeting with him, we put together a special programme called ‘Allegations Of Involuntary State Euthanasia Using Midazolam’.
Within 24 hours of its broadcast on Sunday May 29 2022, the show had been watched by more than 7,000 viewers and social media was awash with clips from it.
The content of the programme – which featured me, a doctor, a medical researcher and two women whose husbands (aged 68 and 54 – neither terminally ill) were euthanised in hospital – was powerful and deeply shocking. Although I knew Celia and Elena’s stories, I cried hearing them relayed again and seeing their faces as they did so.
I dare you to watch and keep a dry eye. I dare you to tell me what they’re saying isn’t true. I dare you to dismiss the salient views of the doctor and the knowledge of a man who has researched this horrific subject every day for the last three years after both his parents were killed in care homes within six days of each other.
No one believes me when I say I have evidence of mass euthanasia within the NHS. Of course they don’t – it’s unbelievable. But the editors I’ve met face to face know it’s the truth. As did Maajid when I met with him. As will you when you watch the show.
