The Day Democracy Died
I am suing Mr Hancock for defamation.
Earlier this year, the former Health Secretary described me in a tweet as a “disgusting and dangerous” propagator of anti-Semitism. I believe this was to stop me asking questions about the safety and efficacy of Covid vaccines
on behalf of my constituents and other members of the public who have suffered adverse reactions to the vaccines and from Covid policy in many other ways.
If I am successful, any damages awarded will be donated IN FULL to support the seriously vaccine injured and their ongoing fight for recognition and remedy.
Support free speech and the right of MPs to give a voice to the unheard. If you can, please support my case against Mr Hancock.
Thank you. Andrew Bridgen
I am Andrew Bridgen and I am the Member of Parliament for North West Leicestershire. I entered Parliament in order to serve the public. I endeavour to serve all my constituents, no matter what their problems, or how unfashionable their cause.
Casualties of the UK Government’s Covid response
When many of my constituents and members of the wider public approached me to discuss possible harms caused by the Covid-19 vaccinations, I tried to raise their concerns in Parliament, with little success. The Government is simply uninterested in acknowledging the side effects or the stories of those who have been seriously injured by the Covid vaccines; in the care home workers who lost their jobs for choosing not to take the Covid vaccine; in the family members whose loved ones died alone and confused during lockdown; in the cancer patients still on endless wait lists for urgent treatment; in the parents of children whose mental health and life chances have suffered irreparably as a result of school closures; in the small business owners who lost their livelihoods; or in those tragic victims of lockdowns who took their own lives.
Do we see any recognition or contrition from Government ministers who enforced Covid response policies while breaking the rules themselves? Have those in power who partied, had affairs or frolicked in the jungle, while the rest of us were instructed to stay at home and isolate “to save lives”, really offered us an explanation for their actions?
Mr Hancock, former Health Secretary
On 11th January 2023, the former Health Secretary who was responsible for overseeing the UK Government’s Covid Response described me as a “disgusting and dangerous” propagator of anti-Semitism.
Why? Because I tried to voice the concerns of my constituents and draw attention to the extent of Covid vaccine harms.
Mr Hancock’s words are defamatory and so I am bringing a civil action in defamation against him. Many Jewish people and organisations, as well as medical professionals, have expressed support for me and reject any suggestion that I am anti-Semitic. Mr Hancock’s smear is untrue and there is zero evidence to support it.
But there is more to this than my personal reputation: Mr Hancock’s smear and false allegations of racism has served to stifle Parliamentary debate – presumably in the hope that any uncomfortable truths about his Covid regime will fade away. My legal action against Mr Hancock is therefore a defence not of Andrew Bridgen, but of free speech itself - the basis of any healthy democracy.
Our political culture is in crisis
My legal action is about creating a more transparent political culture - one that voters can have confidence in. It is about the right of sitting MPs to represent the people they are paid to serve, without being targeted by ugly smears designed to silence any criticism of Government policy.
Do you think our current leaders regard themselves as duty bound to listen to the people who pay their wages?
Funds raised and the vaccine injured
With your generosity, the funds raised here will help to cover the legal costs of my challenge to Mr Hancock and he will have to demonstrate in a court of law that his smear campaign against me was in fact honest and truthful.
ALL surplus funds raised and ANY damages awarded will be donated IN FULL to support the vaccine injured and those still fighting for recognition: individuals who, along with their grieving families, have been completely ignored in this sorry moment of our history.
