  • Labour unveils pledge to train 1,000 extra nurses this year

    david hill's comment 26 April, 2015 3:11 pm

    Remember, the last Labour government amassed or allowed more debt to grow for the people of the UK than any other UK government in history. But they did this by stealth in a lot of ways and where PFI as an example was 'off-balance sheet' and although the country will have amassed debts of over $450 Billion (Nearly 1/2 trillion dollars and 1/5th of the UK's national GDP) by the time it is paid off (if ever), Labour will do it all over again given the chance.

    Labour take no blame for this and would probably use more PFI and PPP to increase the UK's debt even further off-balance sheet. Remember that Miliband has stated that he will not borrow. What he means by this is that he will not borrow that shows up as national debt, but that still leaves him to borrow and borrow off-balance sheet and the people will be no wiser unless someone educates them in what is actually happening.

    Therefore don't believe Miliband is my advice as he will borrow money no matter what (he has to do to keep his manifesto promises), whether it be seen or not seen by the British taxpayer - 'UK's Debt is far more than what people really think - http://worldinnovationfoundation.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/uks-debt-id-far-more-than-what-people.html

    The above debt that was predominantly amassed by the UK during Labour's 13 years in government, shows how a Labour government cannot be trusted with the UK's economy. For the analysis by PwC was undertaker in 2009, when Labour was still in power and had created this unprecedented debt for the British people, whether on the government's balance sheet or off-balance sheet (borrowing and creating taxpayer supported debt by stealth).

  • 'Mismatch' between flu vaccine and circulating virus strains

    david hill's comment 6 February, 2015 6:51 pm

    Highly alarming for everyone and it just shows again that if a human-to-human killer strain of the bird flu ever emerged that hundreds of millions if not a billion people would be wiped out, as flu viruses are constantly changing through mutations - fact not fiction. Indeed in the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic it was the second wave that killed up to 100 million people worldwide that had mutated from the initial Spanish flu virus. But if we look at the swine flu of 2009 (a bird flu variant) pandemic, we see that we would lose the war for survival as drugs would come far too late to help us when analysed the virus from first death to when the population were inoculated against it. Indeed if we look at the official statistics and compare Swine flu with the greatest human killer of all time Spanish flu, we see that most, in the case of Spanish flu, had done its worst in the first 6 months . But if we look at the Swine flu pandemic of 6 years ago we see that the first vaccine was not really until 7 months 1 week after the first human swine flu death. Therefore we are all fooling ourselves in putting hope in the hands of drugs and where they will arrive too late - indeed we shall be dead. That is why Professor Kennedy Shortridge, a world leading expert in microbiology put forward the only strategy that would save humans from such a virulent human killer and which stopped the bird flu outbreak in Hong Kong in its tracks. So why was this strategy not adopted you might ask? Well, the pharmaceutical industry did not want it to see the light of day as there were not the multi-billions in constant drugs using the Shortridge strategy and that is why is was squashed. Another example of corporate power and profits rising above the human race itself and its sheer survival if there ever was one.

    'Possibly the Most Important Keynote Speech ever given for Humanity's Future Survival as the 'Unthinkable' will eventually happen according to Dr. Margaret Chan, D-G of the World Health Organization (WHO) who has said many times, it is only a matter of time not when' - http://worldinnovationfoundation.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/possibly-most-important-keynote-speech.html

    We have to start adopting the 'prevention is better than cure' strategy that Shortridge developed before we are dispatched to countless loss of human lives. For Margaret Chan (D-G of the World Health Organization) has stated many times that it is not a question of if but when. Are we so stupid as humans not to realise that the drugs strategy is in reality a complete pack of lies.

  • NHS staff forced to take second jobs, claims union ahead of strike

    david hill's comment 12 October, 2014 8:10 pm

    Unfortunately this is only a battle and where the great war to come in the NHS is to save it from the 'secretive' TTIP trade deal that is being thrashed out behind closed doors as we speak. For once signed by our politicians and giant corporations it will be irrevocable and make the NHS basically illegal to exist. Don't believe me just look into the ramifications and where these so-called 'free-trade' agreements around the world as a pre-runner, have the corporations overriding sovereign laws and where 100s of millions are being levied against national governments for their government's breach of these trade deals. For these trade deals have their own secretive trade courts where the people are not privy and where they override completely sovereign laws. You could not make it up if you tried but this is what our politicians are signing up to behind our backs and in the full interests of the mighty corporation, not the people of the EU, UK and USA who will pay dearly in perpetuity as the trade deals can 'never' be rescinded - http://worldinnovationfoundation.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/the-ttip-transatlantic-trade-and.html

    The sad fact is that the Tories, Labour, Lib-Dems and even UKIP know about the TTIP, have signed up to it behind closed doors and know how it will destroy the NHS. Therefore they are all literally hypocrites when they say that they are the party that will save the NHS. Once the EU gets its way and even if the political elite say that they will hop out of the TTIP, they are simply telling you lies as the EU will not allow this under the EU-USA agreement. Added to this on the other side of the coin once the corporations have taken control literally tens of thousands of former NHS jobs will go as privatisation has always ended up this way and never created more jobs than when the system was in public hands. So fasten down the hatches and wait for the great health war to begin shortly somewhere near you.

  • NHS to be investigated over historic child sex abuse claims

    david hill's comment 9 July, 2014 9:24 pm

    When is an independent person an independent person? When the government and Whitehall tell you they are. Both of the people chosen by government to lead the reviews and inquiry into historical paedophile claims are basically establishment people through and through.
    In this respect a little information about Peter Wanless who will lead this review and although he is presently the CEO of the NSPCC he was previous to that for over a decade, a seasoned high-flying senior civil servant under both the Tories and Labour (incl. private secretary). Therefore his background is that of the 'Establishment' at the highest levels. Added to this he was boss of the Big Lottery Fund which was and still is overseen by no other than the Cabinet Office (those who run the civil service including the Home Office). So this so-called independent has 'Establishment' blood running through his veins (at the highest level again both for past political masters and Whitehall mandarins) and where the Establishment have looked after Mr. Wanless very, very well indeed. Therefore my advice is don't hold your breath for all the truth to emerge as that in government is as hard to find as a snowball in hell these days.
    In respect of Ann Butler-Sloss who will lead the inquiry is the sister of the late Sir Michael Havers (later Lord Havers) who was Attorney General whilst these allegations took place and where nothing was acted upon. This alone should bar her from this role and if there was any impropriety whilst her late brother was in charge, it may not look good for the family. But also Butler-Sloss is part of the establishment machine and the very people who she will be investigating. How can this be an impartial and independent inquiry therefore as the goal posts are being compromised already in many ways? Indeed lawyers who have brought cases before the Courts concerning pedophilia in the past cannot believe that she has been selected as previous controversies surround her. A few are (1) She turned down a man's legal battle for the right to see his test-tube baby daughter, who was conceived after his relationship with the mother broke up. (2) she has been a target for campaign groups like Fathers for Justice due to her decisions over custody of children after divorce battles. (3) She has heard many ''right to die'' cases where relatives are in a 'permanent vegetative state and refused all. Therefore is this a compassionate heart of the Establishment at its best.

    You could not make it up if your tried but where quite clearly the government and the protective establishment can.

  • Cochrane review questions benefit of Tamiflu

    david hill's comment 10 April, 2014 6:12 pm

    Big Pharma is just a corrupt and criminal activity when you delve into them. In the early stages of the Swine Flu pandemic the vast majority of Vietnamese doctors who were at that time working at the 'coal-face' stated that Tamiflu was 'USELESS'. They should have known as they were fighting the killer virus more than most at the time. But Big Pharma never learns and is basically a law unto themselves, always taking and not giving back in return to the vast majority of humanity (but giving back plenty to their rich shareholders and executives and that's all that counts -

    The big problem also is that because the industry is an annual US$ 1 Trillion+ industry, our politicians back them in everything that they do behind closed doors. And that's the biggest problem of all to get over if it ever can.

  • Experts warn of bird flu virus risk

    david hill's comment 12 May, 2013 6:53 pm

    Without appearing to go OTT, this is the greatest threat to humanity and has the potential to kill several hundreds of millions and most probably ten-times all those killed in the two world wars.

    But in 2008 Nature Magazine published an article to defame and put into as a negative mind-set as they could, the World Innovation Foundation to stop the only strategy that had killed the avian flu in its tracks. This was because Professor Shortridge was giving his first world keynote conference address in Thailand that outlined the 'Source' Strategy that did not require tens of billions in drug sales. It was the 'preventative' strategy and based on the premise of ‘never letting it happen in the first place’, instead of trying to cure something when it had infected humans (the reactive strategy). For history has always shown that ‘prevention is better than cure’ so why is it that we have not taken this on-board with regard to stopping the most deadly killer of humans of all time? The answer is that the powerful drug companies and their research scientists in the Netherlands did not want Professor Shortridge's strategy to emerge, so they employed Nature magazine to do their dirty work; and which they did and killed off the only strategy that had worked in 1997 in Hong Kong.

    Indeed Nature Magazine was so precise with when they wanted to publish the damning article they did this on the very same day as the international conference was held in Thailand in January 2008 and the day before Professor Shortridge’s keynote speech. This was timed of course to do as much damage as they could and to stop such an alternative global strategy taking hold – even thought it had worked before (without the use of human drugs). The reason, the large pharmaceutical companies and their research scientists knew that if it was allowed to be implemented worldwide, it would stop the tens of billions in sales of their drugs (Tamiflu and their future drug equivalents against avian flu et al). Therefore these were very high stakes for the giant pharmaceutical industry and they wanted it dead in the ground.

    Indeed one cannot trust these monopolies and huge cartels that dictate to governments and not the other way around. For there are many of reasons for this that go back decades and where only in the last 4-years they have been fined for 'fraud' on a colossal scale and fines amounting to over $13 billion. Indeed Nature Magazine's holding company has its 'roots' in the Nazi era and where their founders were active Nazi members becoming extremely rich out of slave labour and Nazi propaganda printing. Therefore both Nature Magazine's owners and the giant pharmaceutical companies have a great deal in common - http://foolscrow.wordpress.com/2010/07/27/return-to-nuremberg-big-pharma-must-answer-for-crimes-against-humanity/ .

    http://www.nytimes.com/2002/10/14/business/another-german-publisher-mulls-its-wartime-past.html

    http://www.atlantic-times.com/archive_detail.php?recordID=1646

    http://www.questia.com/library/1G1-93104878/macmillan-owner-looks-into-nazi-links

    Unfortunately it has to be said that Nature's owners have not learnt one lesson at all since the holocaust (apparently because of their worship of profit above human life itself) and where this time ten times more deaths will occur by them stopping the Shortridge 'Source' Strategy (the only one that has stopped the human-to-human killer virus in its tracks), than happened in both world wars put together.

    Since the Nature article the majority of WIF Fellows who were covertly interviewed by Nature Magazine have apologised when they found out the real purpose of the article. Indeed people like Ian Pearson, former chief futurologist at BT and inventor of text messaging, are still Fellows of our Foundation and where none of those cited have resigned their fellowships.

    It is about time therefore that governments around the world changed their thinking on how to stop the eventual killer pandemic and adopted the only thing that will stop the deaths of countless millions when it does happen. For statistics and recent history has shown that vaccines will 'always' come far too late due to the lead time needed for research isolation, vaccine discovery, government authorisation, mass manufacture and global distribution (a logistics nightmare in itself as most are manufactured in the USA). Are we therefore so stupid if we do not realise this in time, is the question? For no person from the president of the USA downwards or country is safe from this constant and statistically overdue event in the history of the world. Indeed, next time will be the greatest mass killer of all time by far and all of us will lose many loved ones.

    It is time therefore that the world woke up, used its intelligence, did not take the word of the giant parametrical industry (for its own sake), realised that our current thinking is absolutely and totally flawed.

  • New bird flu strain requires vigilance researchers warn

    david hill's comment 10 May, 2013 5:09 pm

    Analysing the Spanish Flu against the history of the 2009 Swine Flu shows every intelligent person that a vaccine cure for a future avian human-to-human killer virus (all viruses are different as they constantly mutate) will simply come too late as the time horizons are too short. Indeed even if we could produce an antidote within 8 weeks in the laboratory, which presently is around 6 months, it takes over 26 weeks to manufacture, distribute and administer to 1/3rd of the masses and as was the case in the USA in 2009, this will be far too long and every affected person will have a death rate potential of around 60%. Those are the facts based on recent history.

    1918 SPANISH FLU PANDEMIC
    The 1918 pandemic did its worst (in the second wave after it had mutated into the most lethal human-to-human mass killer) following the first human death between week 16 and week 26 after the second wave. Between 50 million and 100 million perished out of a world population of around 1.5 billion (less than 25% of the population now). Therefore in a mere 6 months from initial human death, most had died an absolutely appalling and suffocating death.

    2009 SWINE FLU PANDEMIC
    Time Horizons for the 2009 Swine Flu Pandemic against the 1918 Spanish flu

    Detection
    Time Scale - 0 months
    Swine Flu first detected – Influenza A, Novel H1N1 "swine flu" was first detected in Mexico City and was made public March 18, 2009. Therefore the first causality was probably at the beginning of March 2009 taking into account the incubation period.

    First Death in USA
    Time Scale + 2-months later at the end of April 2009

    1st Vaccine Approved
    Time Scale + 6 months 2 weeks
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the new swine flu vaccine for use in the United States on September 15, 2009.

    Mass Vaccine 1st ready for use in USA
    Time Scale + 7 months 1 week
    The vaccine was first ready from mass production and used on 5th October 2009 in the USA

    Most Vaccinated City in the USA by 22nd March 2010
    Time Scale + 1 year 1month 1 week
    Massachusetts vaccinated more residents against the swine flu and seasonal flu in the fall and winter than any other state.
    Up to the end of Winter (March 2010) - The Massachusetts Department of Public Health says 36 percent of residents were inoculated against the swine flu, also known as H1N1, compared with 21 percent nationally. Seasonal flu vaccinations were administered to 57 percent of the population, compared with 37 percent nationwide.
    A mere 36% in one USA city and where nationally only 21% had the vaccine by March 22nd 2010. This was approximately 13 months after the first human death was recorded in Mexico.

    Therefore compared to the Spanish Flu where the fastest transit system was the ‘slow’ boat to China and now we have rapid jet travel, the next equivalent to the Spanish Flu will travel like wildfire throughout the planet. Also as the Spanish Flu killed most within 6 months of the first detected death and a vaccine was not authorised by the US government until over 7 months after the first detected death from Swine Flu in 2009, the vast majority of people have no chance of being saved. Therefore the vaccine thinking and strategy is sheer madness and if the world dose not change its mindset, the unthinkable will definitely happen eventually. Then most will lose a loved one or entire families.

    The world has to come to its senses before it is far too late and adopt Professor Shortridge's strategy for our own good - http://www.thewif.org.uk/home/shortridge_thailand_2008.pdf , as is the only one that has worked and will save the lives of literally 100s of millions.

  • NICE rejects Avastin for treating advanced bowel cancer

    david hill's comment 2 December, 2010 1:29 pm

    The problem with our health system is that it is ultra-conservative and rigid in its fundamental system of operation. In this respect our regulators have fixed mindsets and where traditional curative medicines that have been used in China for over 2,000 years are not allowed into our ill-informed and the uncompromising health system. We are aware that regulators have to be there to safeguard our health but when these traditional plant cures have been tried and tested over 20 centuries there is no chance whatsoever that fatalities will be the outcome. Otherwise the Chinese would have stopped years ago in taking them.

    One of the other reasons why these curative medicines are not used is due to the very powerful pharmaceutical lobby groups who spend hundreds of millions each year brainwashing our politicians into believing that their so-called drug cures are the best. Common sense dictates that they are not, for modern drugs have only really been in existence for a mere 150 years at the most. Compare that with 2,000 years + of trial and error (eliminating the ones that cure and the ones that kill) with traditional medicines. But of course we know that there are billions in drug sales and where this blurs the picture completely. Indeed, how many modern drugs have been allowed to be prescribed to find after say three years down the road, that there are terrible side effects that are far worse than the problem that they were intended to solve.

    A case in point is that five years ago the Vietnamese offered the then Labour Government (through the Home Office) a curative treatment for hard drug addiction that had cured over 20,000 hard drug addicts. This treatment was a traditional medicine, humane in its application (did not harm the patient), had no ‘cold turkey’ and was composed of 13 plant extracts - not an addictive treatment relative to modern drug such as Methadone. This traditional medicine is also very cheap, a fraction of the costs of methadone et al and is now produced in western standard manufacturing facilities for the Vietnamese people.
    The Labour government through the Home Office refused even to receive a cabinet minister of the Vietnamese Government on an unofficial visit – the Vietnamese were snubbed.
    You tell me what they had to loose (indeed a great deal to benefit by with all the crime, prison costs and NHS costs), but they refused. The only answer why they did this in my mind was that the government had been infiltrated by the drugs lobby group who would loose out on methadone sales et al.

    Another is in the area of Avian Human-to-Human killer pandemics where the strategy that stopped the outbreak in 1997 in Hong Kong that would have literally killed millions, has never been adopted. The reason, there are no drugs necessary to stop the killer virus (if it ever could according to historical data) as the work is done at source - i.e. no money in field work for the drug companies. The only big problem with this government adopted strategy pushed by the large pharmaceuticals, is that eventually according to Margaret Chan (D-G of the WHO) some day a global human-to-human pandemic such as the Spanish Flu that killed up to 100 million, will return. The other unfortunate fact is that based on last year’s vaccine response, most of us would be well dead by the time the drug companies had determined a vaccine, mass manufactured it and distributed it worldwide (another logistics nightmare in itself when we have nearly 7 billion humans).
    That strategy that worked in Hong Kong and was based on the premise of to never let it happen in the first place (the preventative strategy and not the so-called curative drug reactive strategy - let it happen and then we may be able to cure it) is, http://avian-influenza.cirad.fr/content/download/1931/11789/file/Kennedy-F-Shortridge.pdf

    Therefore these are some of the major issues in health that the UK has to address for its own good and for the people of Britain. That does not belittle the problem outlined in this article but we really have to get our priorities right. Successive government don’t seem to do so unfortunately to date.

  • Another big rise in swine flu cases

    david hill's comment 31 October, 2009 9:04 pm

    With the sudden increase in just the last 7-days of over 700 deaths worldwide from swine flu, are we at the start of something really serious it has to be asked?

    For one thing is a certainty according to Margaret Chan, Director-General of the World Health Organization, a highly virulent killer stain of swine flu/bird flu will emerge eventually. In this respect it has 100% probability based upon the past and whether it arrives this year, in the next decade or over the next 50-years, it will in due course come to pass. But it has to be stated that the drugs strategy is totally flawed and will not save 100s of millions (maybe in fact over a billion lives lost) from their eventual deaths worldwide. For the timing of the drug’s strategy is far too long from the creation of an effective vaccine to manufacture, distribution and inoculation – some 9-18 months even in rich western economies. In this respect the Spanish Flu (a variant of Swine Flu) killed between 20 million and 100 million people in 1917/18 and did its lethal worst between weeks 16 and weeks 24. If you do not believe me, just look at the present situation where it has already taken over 6 months to isolate, create a vaccine, manufacture limited supplies for only 10% of the total requirement, sparsely distribute and with limited inoculation of people numbers. Indeed, according to statistics and logistics, it will take a further 12-months before everyone has had the inoculation if everything runs smoothly. Therefore this 2nd test-run of the swine virus that we are just starting to go through currently should show that the drugs strategy will do very little to save us all and our loved ones when the real nightmare emerges – a pre-runner hopefully. So if we are intelligent people and use our common sense, we should see that the only real way to defeat this killer virus is to address it at source and never let it happen in the first place. This is the thinking of some of the most eminent virologists in the world, but where the power of the mighty pharmaceutical companies, who cannot make 10s of billions out of this field strategy, are stopping this happening. Governments are brainwashed by their influence and therefore will not listen to the only definite ‘cure in town’. Time will tell but where it has to be said that this is possibly now something that is not on our side, as this alternative preventative strategy that will definitely stop the killer virus in its tracks and at source, will take 5-years to implement globally. Therefore we have to start today to change from a drugs led strategy that will totally fail us all eventually, to a preventative strategy at source that will never let it happen in the first place. Common sense really, but something presently that governments do not have. The death count will be enormous.

  • Government hails addiction treatment success

    david hill's comment 2 October, 2008 5:07 pm

    I have just had a reply from Hugo Luck, National programme lead (policy, National Treatment Agency who basically states that they are not interested in any other form of treatment other than the ones that are failing. If anyone is interested I will forward it along.
    my email is drhill@thewif.org.uk

    Just shows why the drugs problem will never be reduced and where most probably it will escalate. The problem really lies at the feet of those who manage the system, for they lack the basic understanding that help is needed from whatever source. Indeed with only a 3.6% success rate, this is surely a failure on a monumental scale. It is about time that these people were exposed for being absolutely useless and do more harm to the country than is perceived.
