Astonishing: in the Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg calls Dr David Nicholl, with whom he clashed over no-deal Brexit, "as irresponsible as Dr (Andrew) Wakefield", the disgraced anti-vaccines campaigner. Background
Seriously overwhelmed by emails from #NHS staff whom I’ve never met thanking me for taking on ‘Mogg the Muppet’...ESPECIALLY from procurement managers....these are the unseen ppl who KNOW supply chains. #BlessedAreTheProcurementManagers #YellowHammer
'People could die because of potential problems over access to drugs and isotopes in No-Deal #Brexit ' - David Nicholl, Consutant Neurologist 'You're a scaremonger and should be ashamed' - Jacob Rees-Mogg, hedge fund founder
In case you needed reminding that Jacob Rees-Mogg is a depraved black hole of pseudo intellectual pomposity from which no semblance of morality can escape, here he is telling a doctor he should be ashamed for having concerns about access to medication.
They’ve overreached. Mogg is a coward and a bully and he’s picked on the wrong person here.
Operation Yellow Hammer Doctor dares 'muppet' Rees-Mogg to report him to GMC after no-deal clash
Who to believe - the consultant neurologist or the man with inherited wealth and a gold plated pension who moved his assets to Dublin while extolling the virtues of #brexit? Hmm, let’s think...
There’s more to this exchange than Nicholl calling #JRM a muppet. What we see here is a man emboldened to insult a serious professional by a toxic public narrative which forbids any kind of challenge. Why are we putting up with this crap?
So Michael don’t be a muppet, apologise like Jacob or else refer both of us to #yellowhammer
Consultant neurologist: ‘I am not bothered about Jacob Rees-Mogg. I’m not going to take a single word of health lessons from a muppet like him. What does he know about epilepsy or neuropathic?

I trust it won’t be too long before Mogg and his fellows discover that this scale of bullying doesn’t wash. Mogg tries to bully doctor in no-deal clash about the availability of medicine after a CrashOut Brexit

Super proud of this evening. For standing up for patients. For telling truth to power - even when that power is wielded by ignorant, aggressive, self-enriching diehards.
Jacob Rees-Mogg tells NHS Consultant Neurologist Dr David Nichols [who worked on the Govt Yellowhammer contingency plans] he should be “ashamed.” Why? For expressing concerns re: medicine shortages. #Election #GetReadyForBrexit
Just read and listen. Doctor dares 'muppet' Rees-Mogg to report him after no-deal clash
My school produced many communicators, some of whom went into the media. Thank goodness it didn’t produce people who thought that sounding posh meant taking the moral high ground in such a sanctimonious fashion. It’s not who should be ashamed.
Good to see scientists and medics standing up to the populist disinformation of the current administration
