A Conservative MP was stopped in his tracks by the Speaker today after asking a bizarre question about the Covid-19 vaccine.
Sir Christopher Chope, the MP for Christchurch & East Dorset, asked whether there would be “justice” for the 10,000 or more people who have suffered serious injury or even death as a result of the vaccine, a number that is not easy to corroborate.
A Freedom of Information Request submitted at the end of last year shows that there are currently 13 deaths registered in England and Wales due to adverse effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.
These figures cover deaths from March 2020 to November 2021.
There are currently no deaths registered under the age of 35.
Sir Christopher’s question prompted a blunt response from the speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle, who said that it was a “poor effort”.
