That uber-Tory and total tweet Dr Donal Blaney (right) appears to be suggesting that only those with HIV/AIDS are dying of H1N1A. Not sure if he means in general or just in the United Kingdom or just in the small sample known to his mole:
A mole at a London hospital has told me something interesting about swine flu.
First, after a recent outbreak at a mosque, elders insisted that worshipers were told they had H1-N1 (bird flu) and not swine flu (I kid you not).
Secondly, and this surely merits further investigation, the form of words used whenever anyone dies of swine flu - namely that the victim had "underlying health problems" - is apparently a euphemism for HIV/AIDS.
If this really is the case - and I have put in a Freedom of Information request to those hospitals where the victims tragically died of swine flu to get to the truth - then for the public to be lied to as to the risks of swine flu for the sake of political correctness really is one of the great scandals of our time.
That's two things Donal, not "something". First, the gratuitous little gag about muslims not eating or associating with the P-I-G. Hee hee hee. Second, the idea that "underlying health problems", used of the variety of fatalities from H1N1A, always means AIDS.
Therefore, suggests Donal, we should all be told that as those dying are careless gayers, needle-sharing intravenous druggies, receivers of infected blood products, whores, refugees and philanderers, the rest of us needn't worry.
Now, I'm not suggesting that Donal Blaney and his mole are either Islamophobic or Homophobic. But there are two problems. This "information" is uncorroborated and seems a bit unlikely to be the full story. And Donal's post seems to be just dripping hidden agendas and nudge nudgery.
The rest of us needn't be particularly worried anyway. Not at this time. This is a pretty mild infection and apparently less harmful than bog-standard seasonal flu.
