Prime Minister was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital, in London, earlier this week after experiencing "persistent symptoms of coronavirus".

Steve Hedley, assistant chief of The National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers, also said he hoped the entire cabinet contract Covid-19 in a series of shocking comments on Facebook on Sunday.

"Boris Johnson has corona, sending thoughts, prayers and best wishes to the virus after such a horrible experience."

The comments were posted on Facebook on Sunday

In his response, Mr Hedley told the person to block him, saying he wouldn’t cry "crocodile tears for people who’ve killed the working class and vulnerable for years".

He wrote: "Feel free to block me I hope the whole cabinet of Tory b******s get it too for what they've done to the disabled and poor, 130,000 deaths because of their vicious austerity policies.

"I'll cry no crocodile tears for people who've killed the working class and vulnerable for years and have mishandled this crisis so badly that NHS staff are dying because they have inadequate protective equipment and patients dying because there are not nearly enough ventilators."

Steve Hedley has so far refused to apologise for the comments

The RMT assistant chief later wrote: "I don’t want to offend you but if Bojo pops his clogs I’m throwing a party".

He also later added in another comment, Mr Hedley added: "I hope the whole cabinet and higher echelons of the Tory Party have been touching various bits of him."

In another Facebook post yesterday, he said: "A genuine question to all those who feel we should all show humanity and compassion even to people we don’t like when they are ill.

"Is this principle universal? I.e. does it apply to everyone who is a human being?"

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK

The Labour supporter made the remarks after the prime minister was admitted to St Thomas’ Hospital in London on Sunday night with "persistent coronavirus symptoms".

The Tory leader was moved from the ICU to a general ward at St Thomas’ Hospital yesterday and is in "extremely good spirits" as doctors closely monitor him during the "early phase" of his recovery.

It comes after a town mayor who said the prime minister "completely deserves this" lost her job at a law firm.
