Fry (r) distanced himself from Power to the People UK's views.
Covid conspiracy cranks claim they have teamed up with a solicitor to fight employers who require staff to wear masks or take a vaccine.
'Power to the People UK', which alleges that vaccines kill and that Covid has been patented by Bill Gates, said that Chris Fry, who runs discrimination specialists Fry Law, will take its followers’ cases on a no win, no fee basis.
"If you have been discriminated against for being exempt from wearing a mask, or your employer is trying to force the covid vaccine on you, please get in touch with him", the group informed its adherents this week in an Instagram post.
PTTP is operated by Ellie Grey, who set out to debunk the view that she was a conspiracy theorist in a YouTube video in September. According to Grey's video, at the beginning of 2020 "we all saw videos from Wuhan of people dropping dead in the streets, people would be driving their cars and they would crash them because they'd just die at the steering wheel".
Er...did we see that?
In a case of 'citation needed', Grey claimed it had been confirmed that Covid was lab-made, "released mostly on purpose", and "patented by the Gates Foundation".
Power to the People UK's website provides template documents followers can use to try to get themselves exempted from wearing masks at work or in school. Antivaxxers with family members in a care home are encouraged to print out a 'Vaccine Injury Liability' contract and compel the nurse to sign it before administering the vaccine to elderly relatives.
The group's posts have been repeatedly flagged as false by fact-checkers, including claims that "the sun protects you from cancer" and that an annual mammogram will "give you cancer".
Take the red pill! Actually, don't, it gives you cancer.
A recent PTTP post proclaimed that Andrew Wakefield, the disgraced doctor who was struck from the medical register after falsely claiming that the MMR vaccine caused autism, "was right".
The group’s gift shop sells branded clothing bearing slogans including, "Vaccines harm", "CV19 is a scam", and, "I've got 99 problems and Covid aint 1".
A perfect gift for the exhausted NHS worker in your life.
Concern that the spread of misinformation is affecting take-up of the vaccine has prompted the NHS to embark on a myth-busting campaign which explains that Covid is real and the vaccines are safe and effective.
When he was contacted by RollOnFriday, Fry distanced himself from PTTP's views while also justifying his involvement with the group. The solicitor said his "view" was that "Covid is real, vaccinations are a great idea (I’m having mine on Friday) and that Face Masks should be worn unless you have a proved disability which prevents it".
He said he was only acting for people who had proven their disability "but still been refused access, often in a humiliating and degrading way", and that "the extent to which we’ve teamed up with Power to the People is limited to helping people who meet this criteria in respect of disability discrimination cases only". PTTP should watch out, however, as obviously from Friday, Microsoft's founder will be able to control Fry and listen in to his conversations.
