‘When your core message is wrong you have no legs to stand on! There’s only one Right in this fight against Covid so don’t even try to question it! Change your attitude and get with the times.’

He has been critical of mask usage to help combat the virus on social media, writing in July that masks ‘are about keeping the fear alive until the vaccine arrives.

‘Masks stop viruses in their tracks, in the same way underpants stop farts.’
