Celebrity chef Antony Worrall Thompson has put a sign on his pub the Greyhound in Oxfordshire that makes clear the unvaccinated are welcome. It says: “We do not discriminate. Race, gender, age, disability, vaccinated or unvaccinated. Everyone equal here. Everyone welcome.” The BBC has more.
The TV chef, who opened his first restaurant in London in 1981, used to appear on the BBC’s Ready Steady Cook, and came fifth on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! in 2003.
He told the BBC: “I’m doing it [having the sign up] because I don’t want to discriminate against anyone.
“At the end of the day we’ve done our time, we’ve done two years of this, lockdowns and various things and precautions, and I think it’s time to move on.”
Asked if it was irresponsible, he answered: “I don’t think it’s irresponsible at all. You know you have the choice. Freedom of choice to get vaccinated, freedom of choice to come to the Greyhound.”
He added: “I agree with people getting vaccinated. I’m not an anti-vaxxer… to me if you don’t want to get vaccinated, if you don’t want to put chemicals into your body, it has to be your choice.”
