We have drawn readers’ attention to the Government’s Chief Medical Officer’s contention that the cause of excess deaths was a lack of access to cardiovascular drugs, blood pressure monitoring and cancer services. The first two are evidence-free statements, as we pointed out.
On January 24th, Esther McVey MP asked whether the His Majesty’s Government was investigating or was planning to do so and received an evasive answer from the Minister citing the usual F Word (flu) and C Word (Covid) plus some waffle.
We need an urgent and thorough investigation into excess deaths. pic.twitter.com/2jhz4zy027

Now Lord Strathcarron has asked the same question and received an answer from Lord Markham.
But there is no need to worry – apart from this slight problem with deaths – the Government is keeping an eye on your health, have no fear. And it does not need to investigate as there are a variety of folks (we’re not sure if this includes us) producing “diverse estimates” with various methods.
Oh, by the way: F and C have been nose-diving for some time after a steep upward and downward trajectory. But not so excess non-Covid mortality, which we’ve been writing about since Augustwhen we launched our Substack and pointed out we have reached the point for triggering a causal investigation. Nothing has changed our concern
