During Monday’s instalment, host Jeremy Vine welcomed guests Nina Myskow and broadcaster Emily Carver onto the programme to talk about the latest news headlines. The first topic of discussion was the coronavirus pandemic and how many people have been vaccinated. However, the debate soon took a turn when Myskow made a bold statement about the virus, as she compared it to World War Two. This led to a heated row between Myskow and Carver.
Before the debate had barely begun, both guests clashed after Carver claimed more than half of the population had been vaccinated.
“That’s a very big claim,” Myskow told her. “It’s not most of the population.”
Chipping into the conversation to set the record straight, Vine said: “By definition is 51 percent. It’s 37 million, which is more than half.”
Myskow hit back: “You can’t say that things will be safe until as many people as possible have been doubled jabbed.”

She continued: “Not everyone who wants the vaccine has had it. It’s the young people not coming forward.”
Carver went on to claim: “Young people have a very small risk of getting hurt [by the virus].”
Myskow appeared to get frustrated as she raged: “That’s not the case.
“They have to take into account the widest part of society. If they are not vaccinated, they run the risk of not only becoming ill themselves and we are hearing stories [about] more younger people on ICU [wards].”
The discussion soon shifted to whether people should be allowed to go on holiday now restrictions are lifting.
Carver went on to point out that people have the right to choose to go on holiday if they want to.
Myskow didn’t disagree with the fact everyone needs a holiday, although, the debate took an unexpected turn when she likened the virus to Adolf Hitler.
“We all need to have a holiday, but this is just what the situation is,” she began.

“It’s like the Second World War. I know I’m not 108-years-old and I didn’t live through it but my parents did,” she added.
“I’m sick and tired of Hitler dropping bombs, let’s just go outside,” Myskow compared.
“There is no equivalence there,” Carver hit back. “This is a virus that we have all but tackled.”
Myskow replied: “Emily, for the last four or five days the cases have been going down which is fantastic.”
“It’s wonderful, it’s in the right direction but it’s still 29,000 people a day,” she continued.
Carver told her: “This is a virus that is going to be around in this country for a very long time, at what point do we go back to normal?”
Myskow claimed things would go back to normal when people have been double jabbed.
“In this country, for one reason or another, some people will not get a double jab,” Carver concluded.
“What are you going to do, ban them?”
