Sammy Wilson MP pictured not wearing mask on tube

A photo has emerged of DUP MP Sammy Wilson not wearing a face mask on public transport in London.

It appeared on social media on Thursday morning, showing Mr Wilson reading a magazine, as he headed to the airport.

A witness claimed he did not wear a mask for the duration of his tube journey from Westminster to Heathrow.

Mr Wilson said he accepted he "should have been" wearing a face covering and he would "accept whatever consequences there are".

"I have accepted that I wasn't wearing a mask, I should have been," he said.

Wearing a mask on the tube is stifling. But pretty much everyone complies, because we are in the middle of a bloody pandemic. Sammy Wilson is a far right literal moron. He is the classic example a politician who won his seat based on green and orange and nothing else. He did not wear a face covering because he did not want to. Yet another example of law makers thinking that the law does not apply to them.

1. His excuse is pathetic.

"I took a call and you can't talk through a mask as you are muffled, so I took it off but put it back on again soon after."

3. I've taken plenty of phone calls while wearing a mask

The one thing you find yourself doing in that situation is talking louder than you normally would to make up for the fact that there's something in front of your mouth. Come to think of it, most conversations with a mask on tend to be at a higher volume!

And if you don't want to be discussing something loudly in public you don't accept the phone call.
