“Rishi Sunak said he has put all his assets into a blind trust.”
She continued: “He has refused to whether he holds assets in the hedge fund and therefore in Moderna.
“That man came out in front of 10 Downing Street and said accountability and transparency and all of this.
“If you are true to your word Rishi Sunak, do you own shares in Moderna because if you do, are we now talking about insider trading.”
“I was 20 minutes late and I phoned in and said ‘I’m terribly sorry, I will be there’, I got in there and said ‘I am so sorry I am late.’
“And they said ‘Don’t worry at all we have only got a couple of customers today.’ I won’t tell you where it was.
“But my point being, this is ridiculous. It seems ridiculous that my clinic was empty and there are people dying because they can’t get scans.
“Now listen, I don’t need the publicity, I just want to do some good things and I think this is a good thing.”
