James Whales brutally shut down an anti-vaxxer’s caller, saying he “can’t b***dy be bothered with people” like him voicing unfounded conspiracies about the coronavirus jab. The NHS has been urging people to book jabs as hospitals see 14 times more coronavirus patients than this time last year.
Calling on TalkRadio, anti-vaxxer Terry from St Helens said: “Okay. I am an anti-vaxxer.
“I’ve got a couple of questions I’d like you to answer because you’ve been given a lot of abuse out to people who are anti-vaxxers.”
James Whale interjected: “I don’t think we’ve done nearly enough really.”
Terry asked: “Why are the drugs companies been indemnified against any prosecutions for what might happen if you have any reaction to the vaccines?”

“The other thing is the so-called ‘why do we need the booster?’”
Mr Whale said: “I’ll leave that to you, Ash. I can’t be bothered with them.
Co-presenter Ash Gould said: “Because it wears out doesn’t it after a while.”
Mr Whales continued: “I can’t bloody be bothered with people like you.
“I can’t actually be bothered with you.”
The caller said: “You can’t answer the question, James?
Mr Whales replied: “I can’t actually be bothered to answer it anymore.
“If you’re stupid enough to say the things you have said. Good night. Thank you very much indeed. Bye-bye.”
The NHS is urging people to get the booster jabs.
Third shots are currently available to those aged over 50.
THE NHS says that there are still 4.5 million people who have not had the first dose.
NHS chief executive Amanda Pritchard has warned a tough few months ahead.
She told Sky News: “There is no doubt that the NHS is running hot and there are some very real pressures on health and social care.”
