MP Andrew Bridgen has his Tory whip removed after causing “great offence” with remarks on COVID vaccines and Holocaust.
Mr Bridgen claimed COVID vaccines “are causing serious harms” and said it was “the biggest crime against humanity since the holocaust”.
Tory chief Whip Simon Hart said: “Andrew Bridgen has crossed a line, causing great offence in the process.
“As a nation we should be very proud of what has been achieved through the vaccine programme. The vaccine is the best defence against COVID that we have.
“Misinformation about the vaccine causes harm and costs lives. I am therefore removing the whip from Andrew Bridgen with immediate effect, pending a formal investigation.”
