Tory MP Suspended For Comparing Vax To Holocaust

The BBC reports:

Andrew Bridgen has been suspended as a Conservative MP for spreading misinformation about Covid vaccination. It comes after the North West Leicestershire MP posted a tweet that compared vaccines to the Holocaust.

Tory chief whip Simon Hart said the comments had “crossed a line” and caused great offence. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak also condemned the remarks, calling the comparison “utterly unacceptable”.

Mr Hart said Mr Bridgen would lose the party whip – meaning he will sit as an independent – while a formal investigation takes place. The MP is currently serving a five-day suspension from Parliament for breaching parliamentary rules on registering financial interests.
