A new U.K. documentary -
"Safe and Effective - A Second Opinion" - details how U.K. citizens
were subjected to psychological pressure to comply with COVID-19
vaccination governmental policies under the "dubious mantra" of
"safe and effective."
The 55-minute film was produced by Oracle Films, in
collaboration with Mark Shaman - a former ITV and BSkyB executive -
and News Uncut.
The documentary opens with a statement by Dr. Aseem Malhotra,
an influential consultant cardiologist trained by U.K.'s National
Health Service, who said he was,
"doubled jabbed" and
"one of the first to take the
"After several months [of] critically appraising the data,
speaking to eminent scientists at Oxford, Stanford and Harvard,
speaking to two investigative medical journalists and being
contacted by two Pfizer whistleblowers, I have reluctantly
concluded that this vaccine is not completely safe and has
unprecedented harms," Malhotra said.
"Which leads me to conclude," he added, "that it needs to be
suspended until all the raw data have been released for

"Many more scientists
are alarmed at what is developing into a global issue."
The narrator continued:
"Millions of vaccine
injuries and thousands of deaths are being reported through
official channels all across the world. Our government has been accused of covering up the emerging
data, and the media are telling only one side of the story."
The film also featured

Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, or MHRA,
reported more 432,819 reports of adverse reactions - including
2,240 fatalities - following COVID-19 vaccination, although not
all reports will be confirmed as vaccine-induced.
The numbers of
COVID-19 vaccination adverse reactions and deaths reported in the
U.S., to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS,
are higher still.
Between Dec. 14,
2020, and Sept. 30, 2022, there were

31,470 deaths - reported to VAERS.

the lack of public acknowledgment of the experiences of individuals
such as Segal is,
"a scandal of
such epic proportions" that "people don't know where to begin
with it," said Dr. Clare Craig, a diagnostic pathologist, who
was quoted in the documentary.
The U.K. government
is in denial about vaccine injuries, according to Sir
Christopher Chope, a member of the U.K. Parliament, who said
the government tries,
vaccine confidence by covering up the adverse consequences for
some of having been vaccinated."
Chope said he is
advocating for a private members
bill that would speed up
compensation and increase the maximum amount of compensation for
those injured by a COVID-19 vaccine.
But for the
vaccine-injured, it's not just about monetary compensation - it's
about recognition and a return to good health.

"Did doctors do
enough to enable informed consent?"
Craig said she
thought what happened with informed consent was "hugely concerning,"

At the end of the
film, the narrator emphasized that "proper, balanced science" needs
to be done so that the public can reach "a sound conclusion" on the
safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines.
"We need to
know the truth," he added.
