‘Blair is never wrong!’ Iain Dale exclaims as Adonis defends the ‘idiots’ jab against unvaccinated people.
Lord Adonis, a Labour peer, defended former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s labeling of vaccine opponents as “idiots,” claiming that “Tony Blair never gets it wrong.”
As he discussed former Prime Minister Tony Blair’s comments on the unvaccinated, Lord Adonis had LBC presenter Iain Dale in stitches.
The Labour peer praised the COVID-19 vaccine and urged British citizens who had not yet received their dose to do so.
Mr Dale interrogated Lord Adonis about Mr Blair’s remark that unjabbed Britons are “idiots.”
“It’s a judgement call as to exactly what language you use,” Lord Adonis said, “but it’s clearly in all of our interests.”
“There is no good reason why people who can safely do so should not get vaccinated.”
“Did Tony Blair use the word idiot incorrectly?” Mr Dale asked.
“Tony Blair never goes wrong,” Lord Adonis said.
Mr Dale laughed off the remark, saying, “How did I know you were going to say that?”
The former Prime Minister made the remarks while warning against using a “heavy-handed” approach to persuade people to get vaccinated.
Mr. Blair also backed the UK government’s Plan B imposed restrictions, agreeing with the new government’s plans to halt the Omicron case surge.
“Frankly, if you’re not vaccinated right now and you’re eligible and you have no health reason not to be vaccinated, you’re not just irresponsible, you’re an idiot,” he said.
“I’m sorry, I mean you are, truthfully.”
Because this Omicron variant is so contagious, it will infect anyone who is unvaccinated and in contact with it.
“And that will put a lot of strain on the health-care system.”
“We shouldn’t go after these unvaccinated people in a heavy-handed way,” Mr Blair added, “but we should try to go after them and persuade them.”
“There could be a variety of reasons, but getting vaccinated is in their best interests, not to mention the public’s.”
The public was divided by Tony Blair’s remarks, which enraged the British people.
Denise Welch, an actress, has been outspoken about COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns in the past year, and she disagreed with former Prime Minister David Cameron’s remarks about the vaccine status of some British citizens.
“Let’s persuade them by calling them idiots!” Ms Welch said.
There will be a circle of people in line.
