BBC: Diana death: New information assessed by Scotland Yard

The Metropolitan Police is assessing new information it has recently received about the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed in 1997.

If I were a conspiracy theorist, I might point out how deeply suspicious it is that this story has broken just a couple of weeks before the premier of a brand new Princess Diana biopic.

Mind you, if I were a conspiracy theorist, I would no doubt also point out that Princess Diana was assassinated with a lethal MMR injection administered by MI6 agents working for Big Pharma, while Dodi Fayed was a lizard in human form who was abducted by aliens because Prince Philip didn't like the cut of his jib.

And have you noticed how ‘Princess Diana’ is an anagram of ‘rancid pansies’ (and ‘sardines panic’)? Well then!

Better inoculate than never

Sunday Times: No MMR? Then you won't start school

Children will be banned from starting school until they receive the MMR jab, under new Labour party proposals. Parents will have to provide proof their offspring have had a full range of vaccinations when they put in applications for primary schools.

You've got to hand it to this Labour government: in power for over a decade, and they're still somehow managing to dredge up new stuff to ban. Who says they lack imagination?

If you remember, back in February, I proposed a much more logical solution to this MMR nonsense.

Logical solution

BBC: Measles cases jump to record high

The number of measles cases in England and Wales jumped more than 30% last year to the highest level since records began in 1995.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) recorded 971 cases during the year - up from 740 in 2006.

The agency issued a warning last summer urging parents to get their children immunised with the MMR jab.

(My emphasis added.)

There are plenty of childless couples out there desperate to adopt children and bring them up in a responsible, loving environment. Anyone who doesn't immunise their children against measles is irresponsible and unloving. The children of the latter should be given to the former.

Problem solved.
