A nation divided and misinformed cannot progress. It is time for scientists to set the record straight

COVID-19 opinion

On March 29 2021 Dr. Rochelle Walensky then Director of the US CDC reassured the American public and the world on MSNBC “Vaccinated people do not carry the virus, and don’t get sick.”

She was lying.

Emails obtained under a freedom of information request show that as early as January 30 2021, soon after the vaccine rollout began, she was fully aware that vaccinated people were getting sick with Covid. At the time, she was referring to these as ‘breakout infections’ in her private correspondence.

So why do people in authority like Walensky blatantly lie to the public? After all she is not alone, we have a whole host of public figures in New Zealand who similarly feel unconstrained by the truth.

In July 2021 I was invited to participate in Covid-19 discussions with NZ experts, as a result I wrote dozens of detailed emails sounding the alarm about vaccine safety and efficacy to many prominent Government advisers, all of whose names have featured prominently in the media. I received the following replies, among others. Without exception, to a significant extent they sympathised with my concerns based on the scientific references I submitted:

“…the vaccines are only in their first iteration. Israel is effectively Pfizer’s real life laboratory…” and my comment: by inference NZ was also being subjected to an experiment, we were known to be lab rats.


“…..We are like lemmings walking towards and off the cliff – it seems very dire for anyone with kids and hoping for their future.”


“you are right that studies have also shown that high vaccine coverage will not…contain outbreaks.”


“I share your concerns about long-term effects of Covid-19 and the need to consider these.”


“…the uncertainties are large. I agree about the importance of trying to keep an open, evidence-informed debate about future options.”


“Our knowledge base is incomplete and will continue to be incomplete as the virus evolves”


“I think you may be right that opportunities should be taken to promote preventive health measures”

I have to presume that our government received similarly cautious advice. Certainly the Skegg Committee report to parliament recommended frequent review of the outcomes of Covid response and newly published papers. So why didn’t the government undertake reviews? Why did they close the door on myself and others who were asking questions? Why did they order social media to cancel open debate?

Why are none of these privately cautious scientists speaking up publicly now?

Why did Ardern, Hipkins, Bloomfield and Verrall tell the public mRNA vaccines were completely safe and effective, contrary to the cautious advice of their experts? Why did they institute coercive mandates resulting in loss of employment and schooling? Why did they tell the technocrats and bureaucrats in the health service to switch into high gear and deny the existence of mRNA adverse effects? Why did they institute saturation advertising and paid media coverage promoting ideas they knew to be false?

More to the point, why are government ministers still doing it? Dr Ayesha Verrall our Minister of Health still has a pinned tweet on her Twitter feed (a pinned tweet is the first you will always see) originally posted May 10 2020 saying:

“Time will tell if the Swedish epidemiologist is right. If he’s wrong, bags New Zealand awards the Nobel prize for medicine from now on.”

If you read scientific papers you will realise that Sweden, who avoided lockdowns, did get a lot right. A literature review and meta analysis of 32 studies in July 2022 found that lockdowns in 2020 had little to no effect on Covid mortality around the world. As a result, Sweden’s no lockdown policy resulted in better economic outcomes and better educational outcomes. Crucially prestigious Pew Research concludes that the Swedes emerged from the pandemic a more united society as a result.

So New Zealand will not be awarding Nobel prizes for medicine anytime soon, but our health minister still wants us to BELIEVE contrary to the evidence

It is hard to escape the notion that Ardern was a person with fanatical beliefs who changed who we are as a nation for the worse, dividing us along false lines.

Ardern ignored scientific advice, she used PR tools and coercion to enforce her own opinions against the cautious tone of her advisors. She aligned herself, not with the NZ people, but with overseas commercial interests and avowed globalists. In this, incredibly, she received the support of all parties and politicians.

It is hard to say anything new about this sorry situation, except to ask how can we reunite as a nation? I have received private letters from some in our scientific community thanking me for speaking up, but now can you also please speak up publicly? Perhaps you were coerced into towing the government line as many were, but now the damage has to be repaired. We have become a polarised nation. No nation divided and misinformed can progress. Covid policies and mRNA vaccines have left us sick, dispirited, ignorant of facts, and poor. It is time to do the right thing and set the record straight.

  1. i still get ” lectures” because i am not vaccinated. By people who think themselves ” educated” and ” wel informed”….
    Western societies are dying. Not of covid, but of incompetence and corruption

  2. The report that caused Walensky to go from “…fully vaccinated can ditch the masks and go enjoy summer.” to “….fully vaccinated should still wear masks.”


    “In July 2021, following multiple large public events in a Barnstable County, Massachusetts, town, 469 COVID-19 cases were identified among Massachusetts residents who had traveled to the town during July 3–17; 346 (74%) occurred in fully vaccinated persons. Testing identified the Delta variant in 90% of specimens from 133 patients. Cycle threshold values were similar among specimens from patients who were fully vaccinated and those who were not.
    Five were hospitalized; as of July 27, no deaths were reported. One hospitalized patient (age range = 50–59 years) was not vaccinated and had multiple underlying medical conditions.†† Four additional, fully vaccinated patients aged 20–70 years were also hospitalized, two of whom had underlying medical conditions. ”

    This was August 6 2021.

    There was never any justification for the mandates.

    Never forget.

  3. Co-governance is in place; so nation is not divided lol. Even the tertiary union is now co-governed after all the Universities and Crown entities incorported co-governance in their statues and regulations. So do ot expect much from Kiwi scientists who chase dollars for survival.

  4. Yes we are a divided nation and we are becoming more and more a racially divided nation promoted by our ignorant politicians.

    Who says that those who steer the course do WANT the Nation to progress?
    NZ has become one big farm for the globalist cartel (chris hipkins just visited klaus schwab and got instructions), and the whole parliament is ruining -eh, sorry, meant running us like cattle. Can’t have the sheeple too clued up on this colossal milking operation, eh?
    What’s next?
    Some culling?
    The herd must be kept preoccupied with struggle, so let’s stir up division and hatred. At least that keeps the punters busy. Too busy and divided to realize how and who milks them.
