“We must remember to never give up our freedom again, under such spurious circumstances.”
He also said of the NHS: “The @ nhs is not my church and my salvation. These are the employees not my saviors.
“If you can’t cope with a virus with a 99.9% survival rate, you are not fit to do it. You don’t need protection, my elderly parents do. I also love your emergency care and will continue to pay for it. For the moment. ”
