Furious Tories hit out at medics trying to bully ministers into bringing back tough Covid winter restrictions

TORY MPs last night hit out at the British Medical Association for trying to bully ministers into bringing back tough Covid restrictions this winter.

The doctors’ trade union has accused No 10 of being “wilfully negligent” by not immediately imposing Plan B — mandatory face masks, work from home orders and vaccine passports.

It said the Government was “delaying too long”.

But Conservative MPs said the BMA, which opposed reopening schools, was seizing on the first sign of trouble to reimpose limits on personal freedoms.

BMA council chairman Dr Chaand Nagpaul said: “The Westminster Government said it would enact Plan B to prevent the NHS from being overwhelmed.

“As doctors on the front line, we can categorically say that time is now.”

But Tory MP Paul Bristow told the Sun: “Dr Chaand Nagpul has been wrong on just about everything and it’s time he stopped trying to bounce us into another lockdown.”

Former Tory party leader, MP Sir Iain Duncan Smith, said: “All the way through Covid the BMA got it wrong and were doom-mongering.

“We don’t want a return to working from home — we have only just started getting back to the office.”
