'MY MP PUT ME IN SHOCK. HE SOUNDED FULL OF HATRED'
Elliot Colburn turns his back on his constituents
By Mark Sharman
ELLIOT COLBURN, Conservative MP for Carshalton and Wallington, caused immeasurable hurt among vaccine-injured groups and their supporters with his comments at a Parliamentary debate in Westminster.
Colburn (below) dismissed worldwide scientific findings as misinformation, backed his Government’s ‘safe and effective’ mantra and admitted he ignored protest groups, which he labelled as ‘anti-vaxxers’ akin to those who deny the moon landing. And all at a debate triggered by a public petition specifically to discuss Covid vaccination harm.
News Uncut asked one of his vaccine-injured constituents to reply.
ZULMA ALFONSO cannot hold back the tears as she talks of her broken health and shattered dreams – and her anger at the response of her own MP.
“It’s like he’d never heard of vaccine injuries,” she says. “If I could see him face to face, I’d say ‘how dare you,’ not even remembering my case, my suffering. It put me in shock. He sounded full of hatred. I believe he hates ‘anti-vaxxers’ and he seems to hate me in the same way. He couldn’t care less about me.”
Zulma was 35 when she was injured and before June 2021 she was enjoying life in Surrey. She is happily married, was planning to start a family and was studying to complete her qualifications as a chartered accountant. Now those hopes seem a world away thanks to two Pfizer jabs. She is living a life of pain and sedation and she now fears losing her job.
She says: “I feel devastated. My life has changed dramatically.”
Like so many others, Zulma took the vaccine “to be safe”, particularly as she was trying for a baby. Within days of the first shot she began suffering severe insomnia.
“I asked my GP if the vaccine could have caused it. She was adamant I had anxiety and the vaccine did not have anything to do with it. After her advice, I decided to take the second shot.
“My GP had no idea about the side effects and all the info she knew was what was in the leaflets given in vaccination centres, only mentioning flu like symptoms. I knew I didn’t have anxiety but the doctors kept gaslighting me and I finally believed them.
“Their antidepressants only made me worse. Finally last November, five months after my injury, I found the truth when I met thousands of people like me on an international Facebook group.
“The Pfizer website listed insomnia as a side effect. I sent this information to my GP who, despite all this, advised me to get a booster to ‘protect others’. She says she has never seen any case of vaccine injury.”
Zulma’s insomnia is worsened by body spasms “nervous jerks, quick involuntary movements of muscles in any part of my body… arms, legs, knees, even lips”. She says she “couldn’t sleep a single minute” without sedatives.
In common with so many vaccine-injured, she found no help from the NHS. She says: “You can’t cry in front of a doctor because they will put it down to anxiety, just dismiss you.”
Zulma (above) and her husband have spent thousands of pounds trying to find treatment. She also wrote to MP Elliot Colburn, who was helpful at first and wrote letters to speed up NHS referrals. However, he seems to have been satisfied when Zulma received a diagnosis ‘of a functional disorder, which is often managed by psychiatry not neurology’.
Knowing, like thousands of other sufferers, that her problem is physical not mental and is caused by the Pfizer vaccine, Zulma has written to Mr Colburn several times since April this year. He has not replied to her, nor to an email from the Covid vaccine-injured self-help group UKCVFamily.org
Compensation is not Zulma Alfonso’s concern. She says: “I just want to be cured.”
Her latest email to Mr Colburn, dated September 21st, reads: “Just making sure you have read my email dated 6th September. I need my MP to hear me and help me, please.”
Will you listen, Mr Colburn?
