Sir Liam's Skeleton: the UK Department of Health Fabricates Flu Deaths to
Boost Vaccination

By John Stone

Annual flu deaths in the UK averaged no more than 33 over the last 4 years
despite an earlier statement by the Department of Health that 12,000 people
die in the country from flu every year. Recent disclosures by out-going
Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson demonstrate that such figures are
fabricated to boost vaccination uptake. Quizzed in on-line British Medical
Journal by deputy editor Tony Delamothe, Sir Liam posted details late on
Christmas Eve.

Sir Liam and colleagues state that an:

"Estimate of 'flu deaths is found in the annual mortality statistics
produced by the Office for National Statistics. These statistics record the
underlying cause of death. They are based on all registered deaths, based on
the information on death certificates. The number of deaths for England &
Wales with an underlying cause of influenza (ICD-10 code J10-J11) for the
four recent calendar years are: 39 (2008), 31 (2007), 17 (2006) and 44
(2005). Many more deaths are attributed to pneumonia, some of which will be
secondary to influenza.

However, they also give another official method of estimating flu deaths
which greatly inflates the numbers in some years:

The official estimate of influenza mortality is produced by the Health
Protection Agency. It is derived from excess all-cause death registrations
in the winter. When the number of all-cause death registrations rises above
an 'expected' level in a given week, this excess is counted. The estimates
for the last five years in England & Wales are: 1965 (2004-05 winter
season), 0 (2005-06), 0 (2006-07), 426 (2007- 08), and 10351 (2008-09). The
highest estimate in recent years was for the 1999-2000 'flu season, at
21,497.

It is interesting to note that in two out of five quoted recent years there
was a zero figure, which means that mortality was under the projected
estimate, and therefore a negative sum. Since projected mortality can only
be based on average, it is inevitable that in some years it will be above
and others below. The Department of Health has also tried to associate flu
death with entire excess mortality for the winter season. For instance, a
BBC news report with Sir Liam - which was part of the annual flu vaccine
drive in 2007 - declared:

"According to Department of Health figures, flu contributes to over 25,000
excess winter deaths every year and thousands of people are hospitalised due
to serious complications."

Less ambiguously a pamphlet on pandemic flu, published by the Department of
Health and with an introduction by Sir Liam states:

"Ordinary flu occurs every year during the winter months in the UK. It
affects 10-15% of the UK population, causing around 12,000 deaths every
year."

A factor of 360 separates 33 deaths a year from 12,000. It is not clear what
impact, if any, flu vaccination - which is far from universal - has on
mortality, but fictitiously high death rates from flu continue to be invoked
in support of the vaccination campaign. (HERE)

So the vaccines worked well, very well and those that died from the
vaccines were far less than the 10's of thousand that all the Johns
would have us believe.
