Northern Ireland Health Minister Sues Van Morrison For ‘Hazardous’ Excavation Due To COVID

The Northern Ireland Minister of Health has filed a lawsuit against musician Van Morrison, accusing him of defamation.

Health Secretary Robin Swann claims Morrison’s public comments damaged his reputation, implying that he was unfit for his role and failed the pandemic, according to the Sunday Life newspaper in Northern Ireland.

“The case has been opened and continues against Van Morrison. “We are targeting a trial in February,” Swann’s attorney Paul Tweed said in a tweet.

Morrison was angry that his concerts were canceled due to the COVID quarantine Swann ordered. In June, Morrison tried to get his fans at a Belfast hotel to chant, “Robin Swann is very dangerous.”

When asked later on Sunday Life, Morrison said he did not regret it, adding, “Of course he is dangerous.”

Morrison then posted a video on YouTube detailing why he thought Swann was dangerous. He claimed to have contacted Xuan and demanded “scientific evidence” to justify a ban on live music during the pandemic.

“No more restrictions.

No more kinks from the government

No more fascist bullies

Breaking our peace

Take our freedom no more

And our God-given rights

Pretending it’s for our safety

When to really enslave. “

Many fans disagreed with the songs:

Swann criticized the songs in an article that appeared in Rolling Stone and said they would give conspiracy theorists “great comfort.” He called the theorists “the foil hat gang fighting against masks and vaccines.”

Morrison could not be reached for comment on the suit.
