Piers Corbyn designs leaflet comparing Covid vaccine programme with Auschwitz’

 

An MP today asked police to investigate the distribution of a leaflet designed by Jeremy Corbyn’s brother that compares the Covid-19 vaccine programme with the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz.

Southwark Labour MP Neil Coyle said it was “utterly sickening” to exploit the Holocaust to peddle anti-vaccine myths that have been denounced by senior NHS doctors and scientists.

Theresa Villiers, the Conservative MP for Chipping Barnet, said the leaflet had been sent to Jewish homes in her constituency and had caused “upset and concern”. She called it “disgraceful”.

The pamphlet, which has been hand-delivered in several areas, carries a cartoon of the extermination camp where 1.1 million people were murdered between 1940 and 1945. In the drawing its sign that read “Arbeit macht frei” (“work sets you free”) has been altered to “Vaccines are safe path to freedom”.

Among claims in the leaflet that NHS doctors say are complete nonsense are that “some vaccines contain nanochips which can electronically track recipients”. It credits the idea of the cartoon to Piers Corbyn, the older brother of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Mr Coyle said he acted after complaints from residents on the Newington Estate and the Walworth Road. “I am asking the police to investigate this breach of covid rules,” he said. “Families staying home, isolating and shielding should not face the hideous situation of having their doors knocked by conspiracy theorists pretending there is no risk.”

There is this

 

Piers Corbyn was a comrade on the left.

 

Look at the state of him now.

  1. A blast from the past is hidden in this report – or more accurately a waft of old beery air. One of Piers’s endorsers on Twitter is legendary racist and UKIP regular, Bill Etheridge. He has an interesting past. He and his then wife, Star, unsuccessfully stood as Conservative candidates in the Dudley Borough Council elections in 2010. In March 2011, they resigned from the Tories following complaints from party members that they were photographed posing with knitted golliwogs on their Facebook profile pages as part of a protest against ‘political correctness’. By now a UKIP leading member, in August 2014, Etheridge highlighted the speaking style of Adolf Hitler during a public-speaking seminar he gave to members of the UKIP youth wing. According to Etheridge, he was “the most magnetic and forceful public speaker – possibly in history” who “achieved a great deal” in relation to convincing people.

    He seem to like his beer, which is a pity for those of us who share that weakness. Etheridge, who is also a member of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), had been active in a UKIP front campaign; ‘West Midlands Save The Pub’. The acme of his UKIP life (so far at least) was standing as party leader in one of their seemingly quarterly leadership contests in 2017. He launched his bid at the alpine villa style Seven Stars pub in Dudley, Etheridge said: “I want us to represent the view of the people against the establishment”. His policy proposals included (obviously) cheaper beer, better representation for fathers in the family court system and a referendum on bringing back the death penalty. He came third in a dire contest. Obviously, he now equates the harmlessness of the COVID virus as being on a par with the best fuggles hops, the charisma of old Uncle Adolf and the cuteness of golliwogs.

  3. Far-right groups are believed to be peddling anti-vax conspiracy theories among BAME communities in Brum:

  4. There’s a been a minor case of lèse majesté in Spiked — Michael Fitzpatrick, a GP, had his article for Spiked, criticising Spiked’s support for lockdown sceptics, spiked, as it were; and he’s had it published on the Medium site. A few Spikies are siding with him. I didn’t think the Corona Virus had any redeeming features; perhaps I wasn’t entirely correct.
