Hayley Matthews, 39, is the face of the SNP’s virtual conference but has been accused of spreading distrust of coronavirus vaccines. A series of social media posts and a newspaper article have come to light in what SNP rivals are calling a "total embarrassment". In one post, Ms Matthews, a former STV and BBC journalist, claimed she would not allow her children to have any “covid sh*te”.
And last month, Ms Matthews retweeted a Twitter post spreading concern about the safety of the vaccine and claiming politicians should be test subjects for vaccines before the public are asked to take them.
In a newspaper column in October, Ms Matthews also expressed her concern over the elements of a flu vaccine.
She reportedly claimed: “The big pharma companies assure us they’re safe however, the less chemicals pumped in us, surely the better, no?Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
"I started researching heavy metal detoxing and the benefits on child behaviours and adult health so I’m going to give it a go as the metals in these vaccines worry me greatly.

“So that’s why I’ve decided not to get the flu jab or give it to my eight-year-old.
"Instead I’m upping vitamin C to 1000mg daily, we’re all on probiotics and taking more of the good stuff.
“By all means get your flu jab if that’s what’s best for you.
“However, this winter the kids and I will be rolling about in the mud and eating worms because nature’s the best medicine.”
