It follows after a bitter clash earlier this week when Dr Nicholl, a consultant neurologist with Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust, called an LBC phone-in show and asked the leader of the Commons what mortality rate he would accept if the UK were to leave the EU without a deal.
The Commons Leader said: "I'm afraid it seems to me that Dr David Nichol is as irresponsible as Dr Wakefield.
"What he had to say - I will repeat it - is as irresponsible as Dr Wakefield, in threatening that people will die because we leave the European Union.

It's ex-Dr Wakefield.
Other than that, it's a disgraceful show of double standards and moving the goalposts. Because JRM's answer implicitly agrees people will die, and that government doesn't yet have a better answer to that, when he complains about the mitigation plans. Of course, it's all shrouded on insults, so he ends up getting a free pass.
I wonder if JRM's "your mitigation still has people dying because it is pollitically motivated" could be considered slander when directer to an MD. Then again, I'm not a lawyer.
Even the Chief Medical Officer has thrown Dr Nichol under the bus, while trying to defend him , by saying there are full plans in place for the supply of medical supplies to be unhindered. This proves he was just trying to push Project Fear and is now squealing because he has been called out on it!
She literally did the opposite but this makes sense from you because you don’t understand what words mean.
