  • What is the campaign all about?
    The World Health Organisation is currently developing two international legal instruments that will expand its powers and role in health emergencies and pandemics, as well as widening the definition of ‘health emergencies’ within which such powers may be used. Amendments to the 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR) would give the WHO the right to declare an international health emergency. It would then have the power to order – not just ‘recommend’– what national governments must do if there is another ‘pandemic’. The WHO is also proposing a Pandemic Preparedness Treaty, termed ‘ÇA+’ which would support the bureaucracy, financing and governance to underpin the expanded IHR, and allow the proliferation of bioweapons. This is the same WHO which recommended drastic measures such as lockdowns, shutting schools and mandating masks, which thousands of experts warned would be dangerously counter-productive, both socially and economically. And they were right. While many of us strongly oppose this power grab by an unelected and unaccountable body, our government is not listening. This campaign is designed to help every man and woman in the UK show their opposition to these plans by writing to their King.
  • Has the WHO's Pandemic Preparedness Treaty (CA+) been debated and passed by our parliament?
    A petition on the Prime Minister's website, started last year (2022), demanded that the Government does not, "… sign any WHO Pandemic Treaty unless it is approved via public referendum." The petitioners explained: "We want the Government to commit to not signing any international treaty on pandemic prevention and preparedness established by the World Health Organization (WHO), unless this is approved through a public referendum." It gained 156,086 signatures, far more than the 100,000 required to trigger a debate to be held in Parliament and a debate was, indeed, held on 17 April this year (2023). Very few MPs turned up for the debate – and nothing was done by the Government. Another petition on the Prime Minister's website, begun by Dr Tess Lawrie, demanded: "Hold a parliamentary vote on whether to reject amendments to the International Health Regulations [of the World Health Organisation] 2005." The petitioners explained: "We are concerned that Parliament has not discussed and will not have a say on the 307 proposed amendments to the International Health Regulations, AND the amendments to five Articles of the IHR that were ADOPTED by the 75th World Health Assembly on 27 May 2022." The petition gained 103,452 signatures by 24 July and, therefore, legally requires Parliament to hold a debate on the petition. At the time of writing (August 2023), Parliament has not yet debated this important petition. A separate petition started last year asking the government to 'End the UK's membership of the World Health Organisation' only reached 22,498 signatures, so was not debated in Parliament. Andrew Bridgen, MP for North West Leicestershire, supported the petition, believing that the WHO serves very little purpose and, indeed, made some very bad mistakes in its advice during the Covid-19 panic.
  • Is co-operation between countries through an organisation like the WHO not a good idea?
    Of course, global co-operation can sometimes be necessary. But the WHO gave bad advice regarding covid, in fact making things far worse. The UK already has adequate safeguards against any medical emergency in the form of the 1948 'Public Health & Disease Act' and the Civil Contingencies Act. Plus, WHO proposals extend to mandatory lockdowns and vaccinations, border closures and other draconian measures, with no mechanism either for consent or dissent by the people. All countries must be allowed to make their own decisions on the health of their people.
  • If the WHO proposals have already been agreed in principle by parliament, why is a petition to the King needed?
    Because a) to accept them would be a violation of our Common Law Constitution, including our Bill of Rights and b) our petition cards remind the King of his lawful obligation to honour his Coronation Oath. This prohibits the monarch from any allegiance to foreign organisations – such as the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Economic Forum (WEF).
  • But isn't parliament sovereign and given the power to make these decisions for us?
    No, parliament is not sovereign in spite of claims on the government website and by many MPs. We the people are sovereign because parliament's legitimacy and existence is dependent on the will of the people. Power is loaned by the people to each parliament only within the duration of its mandate given at a General Election. And, while the WHO receives support from many countries, that does not give them legitimacy since neither is elected by or accountable to any electorate.
  • Can we not trust the CEO of the WHO to make good decisions?
    No, Tedros Ghebreyesus is the first Director General in the WHO’s history to have no medical qualifications. His record is not good either. As Ethiopia's Health Minister he was accused of covering up three cholera outbreaks, calling them cases of watery diarrhoea. He is also known to have strong sympathies with the Chinese Communist Party's policy of imposing lockdowns and other socially repressive measures. How can we trust such a man with decisions which have the potential to overturn democratically elected parliaments and electorates in pursuit of the dubious concept of 'world health?
  • Do we have the right to petition our monarch?
    Yes. Under our Constitution and Common Law that right has existed for centuries. In fact, in the years preceding Brexit, a similar 'purple card campaign' sent more than 210,000 petition cards to the late Queen asking her not to grant Royal Assent to the proposed European Union constitution. Today, our petition cards ask the King to withhold Royal Assent to any Bill or other measure proposed by the WHO and WEF. Sadly, we believe this is our last resort, as all other means have so far failed to re-assert our democratic rights.
  • Is this the only way in which our voices can be heard in the corridors of power?
    We believe it is the only way left to us, given the censorship of all dissent by mainstream and social media, plus the fact that all other means – mass public protest marches and rallies in London and many other cities, letters to MPs, local protests etc – have failed to assert our democratic rights.
  • How does the campaign work?
    We have printed an initial 10,000 ‘purple postcards’ for people to sign, selling them at cost price. You can order as few as 10 cards or as many as you can distribute to family, friends – in fact anyone who wants to stop the WHO’s power grab. Just fill in and sign the postcard, stick a stamp on and post it direct to King Charles. Or put several signed cards into one envelope to save on postage. You can find full instructions on how to order and pay on the ‘Postcard’ page of this site.
  • What do I do if I don’t want my name and address to be visible?
    You could always pop your postcard in an envelope before sending it. Better still, why not gather a number of completed petition postcards and put them in one envelope to send together, saving on postage?
  • Why don’t you have a bank account in the name of the campaign?
    Opening a community bank account is no longer easy and takes a considerable amount of time. We are trying to do so but, for the time being, the campaign account is the joint names of our Chairman and Treasurer.
