Piers Corbyn has been labelled “dangerous” by Dr Hilary after espousing his views that the coronavirus may not exist and that “vaccines cause death”.
The 73-year-old climate change denier claimed that the pandemic is a “psychological operation to close down the economy in the interests of mega-corporations” and that its death toll has been over reported, touting the use of controversial anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine and denouncing modern vaccines as making people more ill.
His claims were heavily scrutinised by both Piers Morgan and Susannah Reid, but he faced the most robust opposition from celebrity doctor Hilary Jones.
“All of your statements are dangerous,” Dr Hilary told him. “You are dangerous. You shouldn’t be preaching, you’re not medically qualified. I don’t know where you get your rubbish fake news from and you shouldn’t be on air.”
The general practitioner added: “It’s expertly dangerous what we’ve just heard. It’s littered with errors, absolutely littered with dangerous errors.”
As Mr Corbyn claimed the doctor was “frightened to answer the real questions on modern vaccines”, Ms Reid responded: “I think you’ve probably nailed it, Dr Hilary, frankly.”
Mr Corbyn was one of the first people to be fined the large sum under new coronavirus regulations banning large gatherings.
While he was one of more than 20 people then charged with committing criminal offences at protests during the pandemic, the astrophysicist-turned conspiracy theorist claimed his arrest was a “political decision” and that police officers who apprehended him “indicated that this decision came from on high”.
