It seems that Piers Corbyn, English weather forecaster and brother of Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, has recently brought forward a “bizarre” conspiracy theory related to the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic, the Daily Mail reports.
According to the newspaper, Piers brought his speculations to the attention of his social media audience via Twitter, claiming that the coronavirus outbreak was actually simulated back in October 2019 by "mega-rich control freaks Bill Gates, George Soros + cronies".

NOW IT'S FOR REAL.
THE AIM IS A WORLD POPULATION CULL ("PEOPLE cause #CO2 problem") by THEIR mass VACCINATION PLAN CONTAINING POISON.
"The aim is a world population cull ('people cause CO2 problem'), by their mass vaccination plan containing poison", the message states.
The theory was further elaborated in a YouTube video embedded in the tweet, though the vid itself did not seem to be authored by Piers but merely shared by him.
These claims, however, quickly elicited a barrage of mockery from netizens who did not seem all that eager to believe them.

A Whack Job gives his weekly address to fellow Whack Jobs? The Corbyn's are an example to us all, that a comfortable upbringing and private education can still produce fully paid up idiots. #FakeNews— The Skibbereen Eagle (@theskibeagle) 16 марта 2020 г.
Famous TV host Pier Morgan also took note of this development, tweeting that Jeremy Corbyn's brother “takes the world to peak coronavirus conspiracy insanity”.
