Maajid Nawaz, the presenter who has faced criticism for his views on coronavirus and vaccinations, has been axed from LBC with “immediate effect”, the radio station has announced.
Mr Nawaz, who joined LBC in September 2016, previously took to Twitter expressing concerns around the potential for “crimes against humanity” around Covid vaccinations, adding he has had “no choice but to become a conscientious objector in solidarity with the unvaccinated”.
“I will NOT be getting any BOOSTERS,” he said.
The comments were slammed by fellow LBC presenter Iain Dale, who branded Mr Nawaz’s remarks as “irresponsible and dangerous propaganda”.
He tweeted: “In 11 years on LBC I have never publicly called out a fellow presenter. But I can’t stand by while this sort of irresponsible and dangerous propaganda is spread by someone who ought to know better.
“Shame on you, Maajid. Shame. On. You.
