    A Conservative peer has denied the pandemic exists and blamed Chinese “fake videos” for fears about Covid-19, sparking calls for her to be sacked from her government job.

    Helena Morrissey, a director at the Foreign Office, suggested the crisis has been exaggerated because people are not “dropping dead in the street”.

    “The data shows we are NOT in a pandemic,” tweeted the peer, who was sent to the House of Lords by Boris Johnson last year.

    “If people were dropping dead in the street we would notice & not go to M&S and have all those football matches.”

    Baroness Morrissey then made claims about the role played by the Chinese Communist Party, adding: “CCP fake videos started this. It is ridiculous.”

    Baroness Morrissey was accused of ‘gaslighting the families of the 150,000 people who have died’ by her Twitter posts

    The comments were condemned by health experts, the families of coronavirus victims and Labour, with demands that the prime minister discipline her.

    The peer, a leading asset manager, is the senior non-executive director at the Foreign Office – a government role created to provide “strategic leadership” and “advice on performance and delivery”.

    Angela Rayner, Labour’s deputy leader, called for her to be removed, saying it was simply the latest example of Conservatives undermining the fight against the virus.

    The controversy follows criticism of the failure to act when Tory MP Desmond Swayne said Covid statistics “appear to have been manipulated” and risks to the NHS were “manageable”.

    “The prime minister must finally wake up to the threat of disinformation and conspiracy theories in his party’s ranks,” Ms Rayner said.

    “He must take action against Conservative parliamentarians who undermine our national effort to defeat this virus and put more lives at risk by legitimising, promoting and endorsing deadly disinformation.”

    The Covid-19 Bereaved Families for Justice group, which is campaigning for an independent inquiry into the pandemic response, called the comments “shocking” and “deeply upsetting”.

    “We would urge Helena Morrissey to consider visiting the National Covid Memorial Wall opposite parliament, where palm-sized hearts for each of the lives lost to Covid-19 cover a wall half a kilometre in length,” it said.

    Professor Christina Pagel, a member of the Independent Sage group of scientists, attacked “damaging ignorance”, saying: “It’s despicable. She is gaslighting the families of the 150,000 people who have died.”

    And another member, Gabriel Scally, professor of public health at University of Bristol, said: “The pandemic indeed kills far more poor people and ethnic minority people than it does rich, white baronesses, but having a very public Covid-denier in a prominent governance role in the Foreign Office is surely unacceptable?”

    Baroness Morrissey, who charges up to £20,000 for speaking engagements, also retweeted comments from the British rapper Zuby criticising the lockdown as “bulls***”.

    It attacked shops, gyms and restaurants being closed while Americans were “going to nightclubs and throwing parties”, saying: “The UK is on some BS.”

    Her comments on the Chinese ruling party’s alleged involvement in the pandemic come during increasing tension between Beijing and London.

    The UK recently imposed sanctions on Chinese officials in response to the treatment of Uighur Muslims. The foreign secretary, Dominic Raab, has stopped short of labelling the situation a “genocide,” but has said it constitutes “appalling” human rights violations.

    Downing Street declined to respond to calls for the prime minister to discipline the peer. Baroness Morrissey has also been approached for a response.

    Tory council leader blasted after calling self-isolation payments an ‘incentive’ to catch Covid
    John Fuller claims cash could encourage people to contract coronavirus

    A Tory council leader has sparked outrage after suggesting self-isolation payments were an “incentive” for people to catch coronavirus.

    John Fuller, who leads South Norfolk Council and is a friend of Boris Johnson, told Newsnight that the cash could encourage people to contract Covid-19. The deadly illness has killed 130,000 across the UK since February last year.

    The comments came as the BBC show investigated whether access to the payments – made to people who otherwise could not afford to take time off work – needed to be increased to reduce transmission of the virus.

    “Let's flip it the other way around,” said Mr Fuller, an OBE. “Let’s not have a system whereby if you catch Covid you get £500. That’s an incentive to actually spread the disease and that’s not in anybody’s interest.”

    Apparently stunned by the suggestion, host Kirsty Wark intervened for clarification. “Are you really saying that?” she asked.

    “What I’m saying is that let's not have the incentive,” he replied. “I didn’t say it was. Let’s not have an incentive that would encourage people to catch the disease.”

    He went on to argue that local councils were more effective at running test and trace operations than NHS Test and Trace – the government’s £37bn behemoth, which critics describe as failing.

    But his comments about the self-isolation payments were immediately criticised by the Thursday night show’s other guest, Labour mayor of the Liverpool City Region Steve Rotheram, who pointed out that 70 per cent of people who apply for the support are rejected.

    “Nearly 130k people have died of Covid in the last year alone because of his party’s handling of the pandemic,” he later added on Twitter. “What an insult.”

    Others were even blunter. “Tories think its all about money because that is all they care about,” wrote one person on Twitter.

    It is not the first time Mr Fuller has caused controversy. In November last year the 53-year-old was reported to the RSCPA after it emerged he had posted photos on social media of apparent attempts to set fire to moles in retaliation for the creatures digging up his back garden.

    In Facebook images, Mr Fuller, 52, could be seen with a propane can in a wheelbarrow, firing flames into burrows. “A great day to be killing moles,” he wrote.
