(LONDON) Press Release GOVUK Public Health Committee Report: The UK’s failure to do more to stop #COVID19 spreading early in the #pandemic was one of the worst ever public health failures, a report by MPs says but vaccine roll-out was a success #AceHealthDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.12: The government approach – backed by its scientists – was to try to manage the situation and in effect achieve herd immunity by infection, it said: This led to a delay in introducing the first lockdown, costing thousands of lives.: But the report highlights successes too, including the vaccination rollout.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk According to MP’s & U.K. Health Committees on #COVID19 and the their failure to do more to stop it spreading early in the pandemic was one of the worst ever public health failures, a report by MPs says.

BBC Health News: The government approach – backed by its scientists – was to try to manage the situation and in effect achieve herd immunity by infection, it said.

This led to a delay in introducing the first lockdown, costing thousands of lives. 

But the report highlights successes too, including the vaccination rollout.

It described the whole approach to the vaccination programme – from the research and development through to the rollout of the jabs – as “one of the most effective initiatives in UK history”.

The report predominantly focuses on the response to the pandemic in England. The committee did not look at steps taken individually by Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The findings are detailed in the report – Coronavirus: Lessons learned to date – from the Health and Social Care Committee and the Science and Technology Committee, which contain MPs from all parties.

Across 150 pages, the report covers a variety of successes and failings. 

MPs call the pandemic, which has claimed more than 150,000 lives in the UK and nearly five million worldwide so far, the “biggest peacetime challenge” for a century.

MPs call the pandemic, which has claimed more than 150,000 lives in the UK and nearly five million worldwide so far, the “biggest peacetime challenge” for a century.

Some of the most serious early failings, the report suggests, resulted from apparent “groupthink” among scientists and ministers – which meant the UK was not as open to different approaches on earlier lockdowns, border controls and test and trace as it should have been.

Tory MPs Jeremy Hunt and Greg Clark, who chair the committees, said the nature of the pandemic meant it was “impossible to get everything right”. 

“The UK has combined some big achievements with some big mistakes. It is vital to learn from both,” they added in a statement to accompany the report.

Cabinet Office minister Stephen Barclay said scientific advice had been followed and the government had made “difficult judgments” to protect the NHS.

He said the government took responsibility for everything that had happened and repeated the apology made by the prime minister in May for the country’s suffering.

Mr Barclay told the BBC the government would not shy away from any lessons to be learned at the full public inquiry, expected next year.

Further to our earlier tweets, detectives from Specialist Crime are investigating the triple shooting in Forest Gate. One man is in a critical condition. Please SHARE the appeal for information and witnesses, incl details about a black Audi A7https://t.co/qndZ4693K7— Newham MPS | North East BCU (@MPSNewham) October 9, 2021

To prevent further violence in the area a Section 60 has been authorised for the borough of Newham. This applies until 15:00hrs on Saturday, 9 October and gives officers additional stop and search powers

Detective Sergeant Mat Freeman, of specialist crime, said the use of a firearm in a “crowded part of Newham” was “callous and reckless”.

Officers attended and administered first aid prior to the arrival of London Ambulance Service, who took all three males to hospital.

The 22-year-old man who had sustained both gunshot and stab injuries remains in hospital in a critical condition. The two other victims also remain in hospital. They are a 19-year-old man and a 17-year-old youth; neither of whom is in a life-threatening condition.

DS Mat Freeman, Specialist Crime, said: “The use of a firearm last night in a crowded part of Newham was callous and reckless. I am determined to find those responsible and bring them to justice: I am appealing for information from members of the public and for any witnesses who have yet to speak with police to come forward. It is possible that members of the public may have captured footage of the incident or of those involved on phones or dashcam, and I ask anyone with material such as this to get in touch: The suspects made off in a black Audi A7 which was found abandoned. I need to hear from anyone who saw a group behaving suspiciously with this vehicle or recalls seeing an unfamiliar black Audi A7 parked in the area. …..At this early stage of the investigation, there have been no arrests.

Anyone with information about what happened is asked to call police on 101 quoting CAD 6941/08Sep. To remain anonymous contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

‘ Row Over Plan to Ban Scottish MP’s Voting on English Law Erupts ‘

#AceNewsServices – SCOTLAND – September 22 – A row over plans to ban Scottish MPs from voting on English laws has threatened to derail Labour’s final party conference before the general election Telegraph reported.

' Screenshot of Video Watch Miliband Squirm '

‘ Screenshot of Video Watch Miliband Squirm ‘  ‘ Video at this Link ‘  

Ed Miliband refused 13 times to say whether he would back plans set out by the Prime Minister for “home rule” in England in the wake of the Scottish independence referendum.

The Labour leader has been backed into a corner over the issue after he signed up to a “vow” alongside Mr Cameron and Nick Clegg to give Scotland greater powers over tax and welfare ahead of the independence referendum.

After having supported new powers for Scotland, Mr Miliband is faced with campaigning against devolution in England because it could leave him unable to form a parliamentary majority.

Labour has 40 Scottish MPs and would be left with the possibility of being unable to secure a parliamentary majority on English issues such as the Budget if they are banned from taking part in votes.

` Golden Dawn’s alleged Criminal Activities may Call the `Neo-Nazi Party’s MP’s to make Depositions by Easter ‘

#AceNewsServices – April 05 – GREECE – The magistrates heading the investigation into Golden Dawn’s alleged criminal activities may call the Neo-Nazi party’s MPs to make their depositions before Easter, sources have told Kathimerini.

The probe into allegations that the party operated as a criminal organization was put back into the spotlight by a secretly filmed video showing ex-cabinet secretary Panyiotis Baltakos discussing the case’s merits with Golden Dawn spokesman Ilias Kasidiaris.

The video was made public at the same time that the parliamentary immunity of four more Golden Dawn MPs – Michail Arvanitis-Avramis, Eleni Zaroulia, Nikolaos Kouzilos and Dimitris Koukoutsis – was lifted.

Magistrates Ioanna Klapa and Maria Dimitropoulos are now set to question the lawmakers before possibly remanding them in custody.

Six of the 13 far right deputies facing prosecution are already in pre-trial custody.
