How a Covid cert revolt in Brussels reveals a dark trend in pandemic politics

A group of MEPs, citing civil liberties, are refusing to present a Covid vaccination certificate when entering the European Parliament.


Their ringleader is Romanian MEP Christian Tehres. Tehres is supported in his campaign by his Irish press officer Hermann Kelly, better known for his presidency of the far-right Irish Freedom Party, his advocacy for Irexit and his association with Nigel Farage.


Naomi O'Leary speaks to Tehres and Kelly to find out what their campaign is really all about, and what brought Tehres and Kelly together.


She also speaks to Bulgarian MEP Peter Vitanov who blames misinformation, in part, for his country's unfolding Covid catastrophe.
