My objections to the APMS letter re: vaccine deaths

I object to the lies spread by APMS re: vaccines.

This is the letter of APMS that I object vigorously to. https://amps.redunion.com.au/covid19_evidence_based_information

The letter claims that vaccines are causing major deaths across the world. The reality is entirely different:

1) In Sweden, which had no lockdowns deaths in 2021, there’s a steep decline in mortality – the lowest in its history. If vaccines were killing on any large scale, that could not possibly have happened. This trend of low mortality is continuing in Sweden in 2022, the last I checked.

2) The VAERS and other such databases are largely a piece of garbage – with reliability close to zero. Yes, they CAN (and should) be used to study issues more formally, but to base claims about vaccine harms from such databases is pure nonsense.

3) Yes, undoubtedly the covid vaccines have caused some serious side effects and even some deaths, so mandating them was nothing short of criminal. The cost-benefit ratio also rarely added up for anyone below 75. But to exaggerate vaccine harms is equally a crime as exaggerating covid harms.

Brett Sutton’s advice (15 March 2020 and 11 September 2020) to the Minister for Health recommending a Declaration of the State of Emergency

I had reason to try to locate Brett Sutton’s 15 March 2020 advice. Unfortunately, it is not readily available via google.

But I had extracted and uploaded it here, and his 11 September 2020 advice here. So bringing these two crucial pieces of evidence together, here.

The submission to VCAT by 815 Truemans Cabin Hire Pty Ltd – to seek compensation from Victorian government

Someone’s share this info:

===

The applicant applied to the secretary of DHHS for compensation and VCAT has been asked to determine if the CHO (Brett Sutton) had sufficient grounds for authorizing the use of emergency and public health risk powers under the PHW Act and, if not, to pay just and reasonable compensation.

Brett Sutton was questioned under oath and his responses are included in the document. It’s all rather shocking to read. VCAT has as yet not made a determination.

===

The document – a PDF, is available at https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qCFwb4A34ae5o_Xv2h7Xm_6fhlM8zNMx/view

I’ve skimmed through this. I’ve seen some pretty ordinary legal cases in the past, but this one seems to be much better. If I had been asked and if I had time, I’d have provided some more inputs to this submission, but overall, this is a good document.

It is unclear to me, however, whether any court in Victoria has the courage to upturn the government’s policies, which have also been ratified by Victorian and national courts.

One can only hope that the VCAT has an inquisitive mind.

My position re: Stop North East Link Alliance (SNELA)

My response to an email received:

xx, thanks for this. There was a group called RUANELA that sent me their suggestions last time around (I contested the seat of Menzies). I published my response here: https://www.sabhlokcity.com/2022/05/my-response-to-ruanela-menzies-regarding-the-north-east-link-program/

I’ve advised within the government on a number of infrastructure projects and on public transport – I do believe a CBA is generally conducted (although not always published due to commercial-in-confidence issues: we don’t want bidders to know the cost estimates that the government uses). I’ve seen many cabinet-in-confidence CBAs for infrastructure, but not this particular one. Public transport is not a magic bullet since many Victorians have no hope of using it (I have been distributing my flyers across Bulleen/Menzies and around 90% of the homes are simply not within walking distance of any public transport – the topography is unsuitable). Currently, for every $10 in ticket price that’s paid by the public, the subsidy from taxpayers is well over $30. While much of it is justified due to reduced congestion and pollution, the point of efficient subsidisation might have passed.

The use of cars will continue in the medium term, so large roads are an inevitability unless we want Victorians to be impoverished. We should improve NELP, not scrap it. Also, there are definitely better (and cheaper) options for public transport and I’ve suggested many of them while I was inside the government, but there is no political will to reform the bus system including the Bus Act and mass transit bus system.

My focus is to get back basic human rights and sanity in Australia – something for which I’ve quit my job and am fighting till today. Hope you can support me on this most basic issue. Help me get into Parliament – I can assure you I’m 100% committed to evidence and reason and will be most keen to raise any well-justified arguments of yours in the Parliament and beyond.

Regards

Sanjeev Sabhlok
