Gove: Senior Tory MP ‘out of order’ for saying Covid data is manipulated

Guardian, 28 Jan 2021

Gove has refused to call for action to be taken against his Tory party colleague for suggesting official data should not be trusted and encouraging fringe groups of lockdown-sceptics and anti-vaxxers.

Swayne, a former Conservative minister, made the spurious claim that official sources were manipulating data to exaggerate the danger during a call with a campaign group in November
