5G and Smart Cities and Sefton Council – Letter from Nicholas Martin sent to Sefton Council Consultation

Subject: 5G and Smart Cities and Sefton Council

I am not sure if you as a council are aware of the World Economic Forum agenda as summarised by Forbes Magazine as follows:

“When the Internet of Things (IoT) connects with your body, the result is the Internet of Bodies (IoB). The Internet of Bodies (IoB) is an extension of the IoT and basically connects the human body to a network through devices that are ingested, implanted, or connected to the body in some way. Once connected, data can be exchanged, and the body and device can be remotely monitored and controlled.”

 5G which is a scanning and backhaul technology, based on beam formed non isotropic radiation, is the means to accomplish this agenda.

If you removed the current 5G network in an instant it would not disturb the 4G isotropic cellular communications system.

Smart cities – which are a modern form of electronic ghetto – are an intrinsic part of the World Economic Forum agenda as summarised above.

Local councils do have prerogative powers which many are not aware of – and Lord Gill`s supreme court judgement encapsulates this:

Suffolk Coastal District Council v Hopkins Homes Ltd et.al: “the guidance given by the Framework (the NPPF) is not to be interpreted as if it were a statute. Its purpose is to express general principles on which decision-makers are to proceed in pursuit of sustainable development.”

The impact of 5G technology on human health is being more and more understood by the public at large and attached is a patent application from Swisscom, the well known telecom company. Abstracted from the patent application is an important statement, set out below, that Sefton Council should be aware of and in the light of the patent application it is hard to imagine this technology supporting “sustainable development”  :

 “These findings indicate that the genotoxic effect of electromagnetic radiation is elicited via a non-thermal pathway. Moreover aneuploidy is to be considered as a known phenomenon in the increase of cancer risk.

Thus it has been possible to show that mobile radio radiation can cause damage to genetic material, in particular in human white blood cells, whereby both the DNA itself is damaged and the number of chromosomes changed. This mutation can consequently lead to increased cancer risk. In particular, it could also be shown that this destruction is not dependent upon temperature increases, i.e. is non-thermal.”

ICNIRP is primarily about the thermal metric and Wera Hohbouse MP wrote to a government minister and in that letter is the following:

“A public body must determine how much weight to put on the PHE guidance. Equally that body must determine what other evidence from your client or other members of the public or interested parties to consider in making any decision. If it be alleged that a public body now or in the future acted unlawfully in placing reliance on the guidance, that cannot retrospectively taint the guidance with illegality.”

In addition the MP questioned whether councils would actually be indemnified by insurance for claims against them relating to harm from this technology –  and one can understand her questioning in relation to the below:

Lloyds of London it seems, will not insure against the harmful effects of RF radiation (CFC Underwriting Ltd: “The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.)

Smart cities depend on 5G.

I hope this email will be helpful to Sefton Council in understanding the actuality of 5G smart city technology and how the public might react to the Council if the Council went ahead with a 5G smart city programme and when the public becomes fully informed of such things as set out in this email, as inevitably they will.

With kind regards
