The one that wishes they'd just leave us alone. . .

Oh look, there's another story that was published by the BBC on Sunday morning, although seemed to have been removed from their website by Sunday afternoon.

Some buffoon from the Fabian Hard of Thinking Society has decided it would be a good idea to withdraw child related tax credits from parents who decline to have their children given the MRR vaccination.


Now I don't hold with this MMR Vaccination gives kids autism story. I think it was a story that the staff at the Daily Fail loved having around because there's nothing better than being able to write 'WE'RE ALL FUCKING DOOMED!' in dirty great big letters on the front page. Surely given this government's mania with banning things (I believe it is called 'Bansturbation') if there was the remotest chance that the all in one MMR jab induced autism it would be withdrawn.

The issue here is choice. ZaNuLabour are always banging on about choice. We want to choose which hospital we go to (I don't I just want my local NHS hospital to be clean and good, it should be the same as every other hospital), which school our children attend apart from you can't now, it's all down to a ridiculous and hateful lottery system, c'mon is that any way to build the foundation for an education system? How about a lottery to see which teachers go to which school, which subjects those teachers teach and a lucky dip bin for exams season. Been studying German? Tough luck mate, you've just picked the Textile Design GCSE paper out of the bin. Anyhow, where was I? Oh yes, choice. Surely it is up to the parents to choose if their kid has the all in one, all three in constituent parts, some of 'em or none at all. It's their choice.

And here comes Mary Creagh, dishonourable fuckwit for Wakefield, and chair of Spongebrain Fudgepants' manifesto group on Public Health (whatever the hell that is). She has decided in her, obviously limited, wisdom that unless kids can provide an innoculation certificate, they should be prevented from attending school. Oh really? Let's look at Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights that ZaNuLabour hold so dear:

1. Everyone has the right to respect for his private and family life, his home and his correspondance.

2. There shall be no interference by a public authority with the exercise of this right except such is as in accordance with the law and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, or for the protection of rights and freedoms of others.

So, in other words, they'll have to pass a law that requires everyone to be vaccinated. Now, how often is mumps, measles or rubella fatal? I had measles and rubella and was seemingly naturally immune to mumps. I don't recall any child at my school dying as a result of either illness, so is obliging people to vaccinate their kids necessary? How can this be ethically defensible? I'll bet parents would be prosecuted for not sending their kids to school if they didn't have a vaccination certificate.

Why don't you lot just fuck right off and do something constructive with your time? Perhaps if you spent more time worrying about your performance as public servants and less time worrying about nagging everybody else like a clucking old woman, you wouldn't be getting your arse handed to you at elections.

Oh and Boris, you've got the bug as well, old bean. Banning drinking on the London Transport network? Why? Are the current drunk & disorderly, breach of peace and assault laws not enough? Don't start banning things because there is a crime existing in potentia, that is a very dangerous road to go down.

So in summary; Fuck off you tossers, I'll make my own decisions, thanks. Go stick your head in a pig.
