Brit plumber plans to sack staff who refuse to have coronavirus vaccine

The boss of one of Britain's biggest plumbing companies will force staff to have a Covid vaccine and sack those who refuse without good reason.

Charlie Mullins, founder and chairman of Pimlico Plumbers, has given his team until January 1 to get jabbed or face the "boot".

Only those who have a genuine medical reason as to why they can't be vaccinated will be spared being fired.

Owner Mullins has hit out at the "cowards" who refuse a Covid vaccine and says they should "stay home and play on their Xbox" while the rest of the public "get to work ".

Mullins, who admits firing staff may be a bit strong, believes it is the right move for the greater good, LadBible reports.

“In vaccines we have the tool to open up every part of society, so let’s get on with it the whole population needs to be vaccinated, it’s as simple as that.

"These cowards should be marked out for what they are, selfish people who are happy to see a country, and the livelihoods of the people within it, go belly up.

“If people don’t want to take part in society, that’s their business; stay home and play on your Xbox or keep twitching the curtains while the rest of us get to work."

Whether people should be forced to get vaccinated by law has been strongly debated with the Government recently suggesting that care staff should due to the risk of elderly residents dying from Covid.

Mullins believes there are some people far too keen to stay "wrapped in their Covid blankets" while sectors such as hospitality continue to suffer from extended lockdowns.

He added: “Covid knows nor understands any rules or boundaries, so why should we? All gloves must come off.

“Having a vaccination should be mandatory. Those who say it isn’t possible, or undermines human rights, are wrong; almost anything is possible.”

On Monday Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced to the nation that lockdown restrictions would be extended until July after Covid data suggested a worrying increase in the Delta coronavirus mutation, which is thought to have originated in India.
