As you know, the UK state censor Ofcom got me bounced from Brit telly because of my coverage of the Covid vaccines and the damage they have wrought. In response, I'm suing Ofcom in the High Court of England on the grounds, inter alia, that they do not have the powers in law to rule as they did. And, by forcing UK media to submit to the official narrative, the chilling effect they continue to have on honest discourse about the central public-policy question of recent years has caused real harm to any number of innocent parties.
We are now three years into the administration of the Covid vaccines, and we have many startling statistical anomalies, including the most basic one of all: a huge mound of extra corpses. Per the EU's official statistics agency:
Among the eighteen EU Member States that recorded excess deaths, the highest rates were in Cyprus (13.9%), Finland (13.4%), the Netherlands (12.7%) and Ireland (12.5%).
Those percentages are sufficiently high that in the Netherlands, one of the healthiest nations on earth, they're reducing life expectancy. The ongoing excess deaths are at odds with the normal post-pandemic pattern, such as the Spanish Flu a century ago. The intro to this new scientific paper sets out what's meant to be happening:
Our approach takes into account age and gender, but also under-mortality that you would expect after a period of excess mortality.
"Under-mortality" occurs because, if the Spanish Flu killed you prematurely in 1920, you weren't around to die when you otherwise would have done in 1924. Hence, excess mortality is followed by under-mortality. So:
If this under-mortality does not seem to be happening, it is actually hidden excess mortality.

Thanks for posting. Always good to hear from Mark Steyn.
Don't surrender, Mark!
The great Mark Steyn/horrid jabs ping.
He’s been through heck, and, back…God bless him.
Thanks- sharp guy & a way with words I always enjoy, even if the subject is not enjoyable.
Yeah, I always enjoy his presentations when he’s on the radio or TV.
“under-Mortality.” That is a new term for me. I looked at US excess mortality numbers a year or two back and wondered. It only seemed logical that they might occasionally go negative.
Technically, a chart on “excess mortality” might only go to zero, when in fact under-mortality was experienced. Just a little gamesmanship there, as in “we are just talking about ‘excess mortality’ right now.”
thanks for posting.
exactly: where is the ‘under mortality.’
and the NZ whistleblower turns out to be legit in his opinion. good. i know Mark takes a very hard look at these things and although he wouldn’t say so, himself, he’s the greatest we have right now on exposing todays junk ‘science’ for the layman. he’s right up there with Azimov, and Feynman, in that vein.
Mark Stein is a treasure. smartest living man in America, imho.
Thank you for this post sister!
