WORLD HEALTH ORGANISATION TREATY AN 'UNDEMOCRATIC FARCE'
They want to dictate world policy – and what information you're allowed to know
By Mark Sharman
THE World Health Organisation (WHO) has launched a plan for a so-called Pandemic Treaty which would give it unprecedented, undemocratic jurisdiction over its 194 member nations, including the UK.
Under the treaty, the WHO could order mandatory vaccines, digital health IDs, lockdowns, isolation, testing regimes, no-jab-no-job rules, or anything else it decided as policy, irrespective of dissenting voices. If the UK signed up, the Government would lose any sovereign power to decide this country’s fate in the event of another pandemic, or other health issues.
This afternoon (April 13), a deadline for submissions for ‘consultation’ passed, but the invitation for video and written comments was launched only this weekend – and with barely a whisper. There was no worldwide public announcement.
Dr Tess Lawrie, below, co-founder of worldcouncilforhealth.org who campaigns for a better approach to health care, made her submission by zoom link and said later: “It was a farce. How could something of such magnitude be organised so hastily and undemocratically?
“Most of the participants were from the WHO itself or from industry. It was more like a procurement meeting. There were very few people representing countries or communities. I was terribly despondent afterwards.”

She writes: “Throughout this pandemic, the WHO has demonstrated its incompetence…It has withheld safe and established older medicines, ignored the experiences of frontline doctors, disregarded evidence from low, middle and high-income countries and taken no heed of the values and preferences of people affected by their recommendations.
“It has ignored the huge numbers of adverse reactions on its own database and has failed to issue warnings about the gene-based vaccines. It has also advertised that the mRNA vaccines are as safe as normal vaccines – and this is simply not the case.
“No one in their right mind would want the WHO in charge of a global pandemic. And yet, that’s precisely what it is proposing with its global pandemic treaty.”
The treaty will be discussed and voted upon at the World Health Assembly in 2023, with a view to introduction in 2024. It can be passed on a majority – and, if adopted, all member countries would be bound by it. Democratic processes could therefore be over-ridden by the WHO, an organisation part-funded and influenced by unelected parties.
Another leading critic, Dr Joseph Mercola, writing in Global Research, says: “The WHO cannot be allowed to control the world’s health agenda, nor enforce biosurveillance. While it receives funding from public sources belonging to the people, it is caught in a perpetual conflict of interest because it also receives substantial funding from private interests that use their contributions to influence and profit from WHO decisions and mandates.
“For example, the Gates Foundation and the Gates-funded GAVI vaccine promotion alliance, contribute over $1 billion a year.
“Another concern is the fact that when people are harmed by the WHO’s health policies, there’s no accountability because the WHO has diplomatic immunity.
“Its power is already very significant and the goal to turn the WHO into a global health dictatorship is virtually written into its constitution. Also, remember that the WHO removed the specificity of mass casualties from the definition of a pandemic, so now a pandemic can be just about any disease that occurs in multiple countries. Even obesity could theoretically qualify. So the WHO could claim power over health care systems in any number of ways, given the chance.”
The WHO argues that a global policy will be fairer. According to Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, above, “me-first” approaches “stymie the global solidarity needed” to address global threats. It was an argument backed in a submission by Dr Mark Eccleston-Turner, Senior Lecturer in Global Health Law at King’s College, London, who said: “High income nations need to make meaningful, binding commitments that they will not engage in vaccine nationalism, hoarding the very limited supply of vaccines to the detriment of low income nations.”
Media note: The treaty also carries a further threat to freedom of speech, as it would give the WHO the power to censor health information worldwide. In other words, whatever the WHO decided was The Science, that would be deemed ‘information’. Any questioning voice, any debate, any alternative view, however erudite and qualified, would be ‘misinformation’ and hidden from the public. It is a template that has been well-trialled over the past two years.
Why Europe can learn a lot from 'free' England
By Alex Story
THE asphyxiating layer of official cellophane that spread over England and hung over our heads for close to two years has been lifted.
The artificial, highly politicised and cynical societal divisions created over the course of 24 months between clever “Vaxxers” and conspiratorial “Anti-Vaxxers” has disappeared more or less overnight. England has moved on.
Our rickety political machinery at home delivered two large blows against the Executive and its Covid policies in December 2021. The landslide by-election defeat in North Shropshire and the large Tory backbench rebellion led our politicians to change tack.
From pushing for vaccine passports and mandates, they did a dexterous volte face and promptly dropped all attempts at control in a few short weeks. England became free again, while much of Europe stayed in bondage.
In the meantime many European countries have made progress along the road back to sanity, aping Boris and Brexit Britain in the process. Very visible aspects of state enforced repression are still noticeable, however — hanging over the European populace like a heavy and greyish cloud ready to burst.
