AVN’s Meryl Dorey orders NSW Fair Trading to change its name

The Australian Vaccination Network’s Meryl Dorey has offered up a stinging rebuke to NSW Fair Trading, ordering it to change its name.

The demand comes less than 24 hours after Dorey was served with a direction to change the AVN’s name or be deregistered as an association.

In an open letter published exclusively on her website, Dorey said:

Dear Minister Roberts,

I am writing in response to the letter you delivered to my house yesterday. I’m sorry I wasn’t in to meet you personally. I was out at a bullying seminar, looking for someone to care about my hurt feelings.

Regarding the name of the AVN: look, we’re a network, right? Well we’re not really a network. We’re a blog with a shop selling Scientology DVDs, but we have a mailing list.

And we’re Australian, right? Well, I’m not Australian. But I live in Australia.

And we talk a lot about Stop The AVN, and what does the V in Stop The AVN Stand for? Exactly: vaccination. So there’s nothing misleading about the AVN’s name.

I don’t think it’s fair that we should have to change our name, and if this Commissioner or Director-General or Minister or whatever thinks so then they aren’t fair either.

So you should have to change your name, because you aren’t really trading fairly at all. In fact, you people don’t even have an online shop, so how are you even trading at all?! Don’t confuse them with logic!!

(BTW, speaking of online shops, we have a special offer on bootleg photocopies of 20-year-old articles right now. $2 each, or $50 for a parsnip-box full. We also have a DVD with all 8 issues of the six-times-annual Living Wisdom magazine, dating back to 1994!)

But anyway, NSW Fair Trading are clearly not actually fair. And another thing: where is this directive actually coming from? You are only a state government and the Australian Medical Association and News Limited and Fairfax Media and the Queensland Minister of Health and the HCCC and OLGR, so I think you must have some undisclosed backing from pharmaceutical companies who only want to make their customers sick. It makes you think!

Love and light,

Meryl Dorey

P.S. Sorry we haven’t submitted our 2011 Annual Report yet. I can’t find my green crayon.

This post is satire. It shouldn’t need stating, but then nor should the fact that vaccination is a vitally important part of healthcare policy. Join Stop The AVN to find out more.

    The very root of your writing whilst appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not work perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you actually managed to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you would do well to fill in all those breaks. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would definitely be amazed.
