Founder of Pimlico Plumbers, Charlie Mullins sparked uproar when he announced his company’s “no jab, no job” policy. The controversial business owner was subject to a backlash when he explained his plans to make coronavirus vaccines compulsory on Good Morning Britain but the Government is now considering whether vaccine passports could become a viable option. But, in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, Mullins slammed Boris Johnson and suggested former GMB presenter Piers Morgan should take over as Prime Minister.
Mullins said: “I’ll be honest with you if the Government carry on the way they are, there’ll be another lockdown and we’ll be talking about this in another 12 months from now.
“It’s been 12 months, this could have been shortened by two or three months for sure.
“When that vaccine came out in December, somebody should have been clever enough and brave enough to use common sense and say, ‘Right, this is the only option we’ve been given.
“‘Let’s get it rolled out, let’s have proof that people have had it, and let’s get everything back to normal.’”

“If the Government would have done what us as a business have done three, four months ago when we started testing all our staff, schools would have never closed, businesses would have carried on and we wouldn’t be in the mess we’re in today,” he continued.
“He needs to put his head above the parapet, that’s Boris Johnson’s job.
“If he’s not man enough to do it, let’s get someone in who can, maybe Piers Morgan, someone who says it as he sees it and doesn’t beat about the bush.”
ITV announced Morgan’s departure from GMB after he walked off set during a row with Alex Beresford over Meghan Markle.
However, Mullins is certain it won’t be long before Morgan returns to TV screens.
“I think it’s a shame because is he one of the only people on telly that you can get a direct answer out of,” the Pimlico Plumbers boss said.
“He asks the right questions, questions that other people won’t ask and I think it’s a sad day that we’ve lost someone like him on a breakfast show that millions of people watch.
“And I think he inspired a lot of people with his directness and not the lying and beating about the bush.

“Unfortunately, we’ve all lost out that he’s no longer there, but let’s not kid anyone he’ll be back.”
“We need more people like him we need people with common sense,” Mullins declared.
“We need people from a working-class background, and we need people that are prepared to not sit on the fence.”
During a recent appearance on BBC News, Andrew Neil revealed his hopes to get Morgan on GB News.
The chairman of the new channel declared Morgan would be a “huge asset” if he joined GB News and Mullins agreed.
Asked whether he would like to see Morgan join the channel, he said: “Oh, undoubtedly, the sooner the better, we need more people like him.
“We can’t just keep being a nation that follows everybody, we’ve got to have leaders.”
“We need more people with common sense, more people from a working-class background and more people that will make the decision.”
Good Morning Britain airs on ITV on weekdays at 6am.
