I would claim that this is purely a coincidence. But, Meryl Dorey, the leader of the anti-vaccination pressure group, the Australian Vaccination Network doesn’t believe in coincidences.
On Thursday August 22 2013, Meryl Dorey’s vexatious year-long campaign against Dan Buzzard came to an end. Dorey has been abusing the Apprehended Violence Order process in a malicious act of intimidation and suppression of free speech. The short version is, Dorey is $11,000 out-of-pocket. She lost, and was ordered to pay costs.
On Saturday August 24 2013, Dorey begs her followers for money, based on a lie.
I just spoke with one of our long-time AVN members. This person has been to a ‘meet the candidate’ get together and got to speak directly with Greens Senator and medical doctor, Richard Di Natale. When questioned about the Greens’ policy on vaccination, Senator Di Natale stated that the Greens’ policy is that vaccination should be compulsory and the only exemption that should be available is the medical exemption – not religious and certainly not conscientious or philosophical. Dr Di Natale said that both major parties are in agreement on this stance and that vaccination will be compulsory after the next election.
If you do not stand with the AVN now – it will be too late to stand with us later. Please join, donate and contact us on email@example.com with a list of ways in which you would be able to assist us leading up to and after the election and what abilities (web, phone, writing, etc) you have that might be useful. We WILL NOT accept a policy of compulsory vaccination without doing everything within our power to preserve our rights and the rights of our children. The AVN has been investigating the options on this for some time now and we have some very good ideas and some excellent advice. But it will take time and money and a great deal of help from the public to accomplish, and we are short on all these things.

So. Is it true? Is this claim, upon which a fundraising drive is based, true?
Senator Di Natale stated that the Greens’ policy is that vaccination should be compulsory and the only exemption that should be available is the medical exemption – not religious and certainly not conscientious or philosophical. Dr Di Natale said that both major parties are in agreement on this stance and that vaccination will be compulsory after the next election.
Look, I know, and you know, that we all know the answer. But, my favourite little black, cast-iron flying pig thought he should ask, just to be sure:
Of course it isn’t true. It’s a comment from Dorey, based upon the memory of one of her members. I’m surprised eugenics didn’t get a look-in. And chemtrails.
There is another question which has been raised, however, with regard to Dorey’s latest cash-grab. Dorey and her horrible little cabal are not authorised to fund-raise in any other State, except NSW. Maybe all relevant authorities in all other relevant States and Territories should now be advised of this further attempt at breaching charitable fundraising laws? Just an idea…
Keep up the good work Hank!
“On Saturday August 24 2013, Dorey begs her followers for money, based on a lie.”
Does that not constitute fraud?
Hence, she is not only unlawfully attempting to raise funds in violation of charitable fundraising laws, she is also now committing fraud in her attempt to unlawfully raise funds based upon fraudulent claims?
Perhaps her career as a public menace is soon to be at an ignominious end.
As an addendum, should that be true and she be convicted, please, please, please, do *not* deport her.
We have more than our fill of idiots here in the US as it is.
