Iconic singer Van Morrison sued over Covid-19 comments

NO MORE LOCKDOWN, NO MORE FASCIST POLICE, NO MORE TAKING OF OUR FREEDOM AND OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS

AS I WALKED OUT

BORN TO BE FREE OF THE COVID SCAM

RT | November 8, 2021

Northern Ireland’s health minister, Robin Swann, has filed a defamation lawsuit against Van Morrison after the rock and R&B legend labeled him “very dangerous” over Covid-19 restrictions during the pandemic.

Swan’s legal team believes Morrison’s repeated public statements harmed the minister’s reputation by implying he was unfit for his position during the health crisis. The statement of claim against the 76-year-old singer-songwriter was filed in September.

“Proceedings have been issued and are ongoing against Van Morrison. We are aiming for a trial in February,” Swann’s lawyer, Paul Tweed, told local media on Sunday.

Swann’s choice of legal representation signals his strong desire to win the case, as Tweed is known as a high-profile libel lawyer, who has previously represented the likes of Harrison Ford, Justin Timberlake, and Jennifer Lopez.

The fallout between the minister and musician occurred in June after Morrison’s gig in Belfast was canceled at the last moment due to coronavirus restrictions.

The singer still got on stage and told the audience: “Robin Swann has all the power. So I say Robin Swann is very dangerous.” He also tried to persuade the crowd to chant: “Robin Swann is very dangerous.” […]

Last year, Swann criticized Morrison over his songs about the coronavirus restrictions, including ‘Born to Be Free’, ‘As I Walked Out’, and ‘No More Lockdown’. … Full article

  1. It looks like Robin Swann’s ego is a lot thicker than the ice he is standing on. If he cannot prove the existence of covid-19 or Sars-Cov-2 (and nobody has to date), then all the restrictions and mandates he has enforced are not only illegal but dangerous. So Van Morrison was only telling the truth when he said he was dangerous, and truth cannot be defamatory.

  2. Van the Man has had a lot of experience getting the shake down from scum in the “music industry”. He knows how their “legal” attack dogs growl grovel and bite. My money is on the Man. “They own the media” but they never owned The Man

    Big time (covaid$) operators and their politcal filth…. it all smells the same….

    Oh, they looked like politicians
    But underneath they were thugs
    And they spread malicious rumours
    Threatened to have me busted for drugs
    They had nothing on me
    Oh man, I was really clean
    But they were bigtime operators
    On the music business scene

    They put a bug in my apartment
    To listen in on my calls
    I was looking for some motivation
    I couldn’t find any, any motivation at all
    They were very desperate people
    Riding in long black limousines
    But they were bigtime operators
    On the music business scene

    They were glorified by the media
    They were heroes who had names
    They said that they would bury me
    If I didn’t play their game
    They said I didn’t know the score
    And that I was young and green
    They were bigtime operators
    On the music business scene
