The UK recently approved Covid vaccines for infants aged 6 months to 4 years. Yet there is a mountain of evidence that the vaccines are neither safe nor effective, nor necessary for this age group, says Hugh McCarthy.
Lockdowns killed hundreds of thousands of children and put 150 million into poverty, according to the United Nations. Are we really putting their interests first? Was it worth it?

The child points to her book and asks a question. Is that what we want? Is it necessary?

The requirement that our children cover their noses and mouths for six to seven hours per day whilst at school – which remains a school-enforced requirement in Northern Ireland, acting on 'guidance' from the Government – is unnecessary and educationally destructive. It is self-evidently unhygienic. Furthermore, masks are harmful. Many scientific studies have confirmed the harmful physical, psychological and behavioural effects of mask wearing. To start with, we know that reduced oxygen levels increase anxiety, fatigue and brain fog, and decrease learning capacity. Dr. Margareta Griesz-Brisson, Director of the London Neurology and Pain Clinic, is one of Europe’s leading neurologists. She states that: “To deprive a child’s or an adolescents’ brain from oxygen, or to restrict...
