Sir Desmond Swayne, the extravagant Conservative MP, has made a unique intervention in the Covid-19 debate.
Speaking in the House of Commons, Sir Desmond was addressing the potential rollout of a coronavirus vaccine – warning against any impingement on the liberty of those who had not had the jab.
Responding to Steve Baker, the self-styled ‘Brexit hardman’, who had warned against “implicit coercion” against those not taking the jab from hospitality businesses and elsewhere, Swayne declared such a concept “vaccinationism”. Nope, us neither.
