A former Dragons’ Den star has sparked fury by saying Chris Whitty ‘will hang’ for recommending Covid jabs for children.
Ex-‘Dragon’ Rachel Elnaugh, 56, took to Twitter to call the decision to launch a UK-wide vaccination programme for children aged 12-15 as ‘child abuse’.
Responding to a tweet by Good Morning Britain, which asked viewers if they were happy for their children to be vaccinated, the businesswoman wrote: ‘Child abuse. Whitty will hang for this.’
The tweet, posted from the entrepreneur’s verified Twitter account, sparked a huge backlash.
Many criticised the comment aimed at England’s Chief Medical Officer – who earlier this year was assaulted by anti-vaxxers as he walked through a park in London.
It was the fourth time a report had been made to police alleging harassment against Professor Whitty – who has been thrust into the limelight during the Covid pandemic.
Ian Fraser, one of those to criticise Ms Elnaugh’s tweet, wrote: ‘What the former ‘Dragon’ Rachel Elnaugh tweeted here is vile, disgraceful and seemingly inciting violence against a Government official’. He also urged Twitter to review the Tweet.
Another wrote: ‘Nothing to see here. Just Rachel Elnaugh – an investor from a BBC show most people know – Dragon’s Den – insinuating that children receiving the vaccine is child abuse.
‘These rotten views run deep and anyone can have them.’
