Posting anti-vaccine propaganda on social media could become a criminal offense – even if those promoting it believe the pseudoscience, the UK’s new criminal Law Commissioner has said.

In her first interview since taking up the role, Penney Lewis, revealed she is considering whether laws should be amended to “lower the threshold” of criminality for posting false information online that endangers lives.

It comes as the Health Secretary Matt Hancock said in September he was “looking very seriously” at making vaccinations compulsory for state school pupils after the UK lost its official measles-free country status due to a steady fall in MMR immunisation.

  1. We constantly have a barrage of Professors supporting governments in their bid to confuse the people and cement their control. In reality the people are the enemy of governments so to maintain control it is imperative to construct laws devised by educated people. Governments collect around themselves these sort of ‘sell the soul intellectuals’ who support the baseless dogma of population control so they can benefit their lifestyles and promote the governments control dogma. Nothing new but it is happening today and has always happened. We all need to reject this satanic energy and dig within ourselves and keep asking…. IS THIS TRUE!
