Dr. Hilary Jones’ country home is targeted by ‘vicious anti-vaxxers’

Dr. Hilary Jones’ quaint country home has been targeted by a ‘vicious group of anti-vaccine protestors’ after he publicly advocated the COVID-19 jab on Good Morning Britain. 

Residents in the peaceful Kent village woke to an army of enraged protestors, who describe themselves as ‘soldiers of truth’, wielding placards and megaphones as they gathered outside his sprawling property on Sunday morning.   

The TV doctor, 68, had previously been the subject of an Ofcom report after his criticism of those refusing the vaccine prompted 152 complaints to the TV regulator.

A source told MailOnline: ‘A vicious bunch of protestors have turned up on the driveway outside Hilary Jones’ Kent home. They’re blasting unpleasant messages through loudspeakers.’ 

Footage posted on social media shows the mob gathered outside the property’s gravel driveway and forming a gauntlet on the country road that leads into the village. 

It is not known if father-of-five Jones – a regular breakfast TV doctor since 1993 – was at home during Sunday morning’s protest.

A statement from the Learn Something New group, shared alongside a video of the protest on Brand New Tube read:  ‘Let the truth be heard, its starting to warm up in Britain, there are allot of people being paid to push this vaccine and they are happily taking the money to push it! 

‘It is important before you allow anyone to inject you with this substance that you do YOUR OWN RESEARCH never ever trust what you have been told its YOUR BODY and once you make that choice there is NO GOING BACK.

‘It’s time to wake up and see who is fighting for humanity a time of great importance is upon the earth and the soldiers of truth are fighting against the evilest plan ever waged on MAN – We need to save humanity, we need to wake people up and show them the TRUTH that is being HIDDEN from THEM!’

Jones has regularly used his platform to  promote the vaccine, while being critical of those who oppose it –  but his comments during an appearance on Lorraine in August divided viewers.

‘We are going to rely on the common sense of the British people,’ he said. ‘While most people do have common sense, some don’t though and have to be protected from themselves.’ 

Of the vaccine, he added: ‘It doesn’t affect the DNA of your cells, it can’t affect your fertility, it can only protect you, it’s a win, win, win, win, win. There’s no downside.’

More recently Jones took aim at BBC show Strictly Come Dancing after three unnamed professional dancers refused to have the jab.   

Speaking on Loose Women about the ‘duty of care’ that is required when your job involves close contact with others, he openly criticised the Strictly stars for not getting vaccinated and increasing the risk of infection among the shows cast and crew.

Writing for the Mail On Sunday, she recalled: ‘Eventually I did what every single person who has ever worked in breakfast TV does at some point, I called Dr. Hilary Jones, GMB’s resident health expert.

‘He asked me to get Derek on the phone. I could hear him putting Derek through a couple of tests, holding his breath for certain amounts of time.

‘But I will never forget what I heard next. ‘”You need to call an ambulance. Now,” said Dr Hilary.  

‘He was completely serious, which I was not prepared for. Even as I was dialling 999, I felt guilty that I might be wasting their time. But Dr Hilary had left no room for doubt, and now an ambulance was on its way.’ 

MailOnline has contacted a representative for further comment.
