Lawmaker claims cover-up of heart issues linked to COVID vaccine

On the floor of the House of Commons, a member of the British Parliament alleged a senior member of the British Heart Foundation covered up a report showing the mRNA COVID-19 vaccine increases inflammation of the heart arteries.

The lawmaker, Conservative Party MP Andrew Bridgen, claimed the cover-up was motivated by financial links with “Big Pharma,” reported The Express newspaper of London.

He called for a suspension of the shots, as have prominent cardiologists such as the U.K.’s Dr. Aseem MalhotraDr. Ross Walker of Australia, and Dr. Peter McCullough of the United States, who believes the best explanation for the “sudden and unexpected” deaths and cardiac events in otherwise healthy people is the COVID-19 vaccines.

Bridgen, representing North West Leicestershire, said he learned from a whistleblower that the British Heart Foundation was “covering this up in fear that they may lose funding from the pharmaceutical industry.”

“The prominent BHA official,” the MP said, “has sent out non-disclosure agreements to his research team to ensure that this important data never sees the light of day.”

“This is an absolute disgrace. Systemic failure in an over-medicated population also contributes to huge waste of British taxpayers’ money and is an increasing strain on the NHS,” said Bridgen.

Bridgen has pointed out that Britain’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency is 86% funded by the pharmaceutical industry.

“In effect we have the poacher paying the gamekeeper,” he said.

The MP said that what is “most disturbing of all” is that the COVID vaccine trials suggested, “that one was far more likely to suffer a serious side effect from the vaccine than be hospitalized by the ancestral, more lethal strain of the virus.”

“These findings, madam deputy speaker, are a smoking gun suggesting that the vaccine should likely never have been approved in the first place,” he said.

While the vaccines have not prevented infection, transmission, hospitalization, and death, they pose risks, he said, with 14,000 more cardiac arrests in 2021 than in 2020.

Some nations, including Denmark, do not recommend COVID boosters for younger populations.

Bridgen referred to research showing a 25% increase in heart attack and cardiac arrest calls in 16-39-year-olds in Israel associated with the first and second doses of the vaccine.

He pointed out that the swine flu vaccine was withdrawn in 1976 for causing Guillan-Barre syndrome in 1 in 100,000 adults. The swine flu shot also was associated with three dozen deaths while the CDC’s VAERS database has reports of more than 30,000 deaths linked to the COVID-19 vaccine.
