Boris Johnson hits out at Starmer as he says Test and Trace did a ‘good job confining him’

Boris Johnson grills Keir Starmer over his ‘biggest mistake’

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer criticised mistakes made by Boris Johnson during the pandemic, telling the Commons: “Fifty thousand people have died since November 11 – 50,000 deaths in 77 days. That’s a scarcely believable toll on the British people. In isolation, any of these mistakes are perhaps understandable. Taken together it’s a damning indictment of how the Government has handled this pandemic.”

Speaking in Parliament, Mr Johnson hit back: “The right honourable gentleman asks about mistakes and I’ve said there will be a time to reflect and analyse and learn lessons and to prepare.

“But I may say to the mistake he has made is seeking continually to attack what the Government have been trying to do at every opportunity.

“Supporting one week and attacking the very same policy the next.

“He complains about the confusion of policies, how much has he done to reassure the public about NHS Test and Trace which has done a very good job of confining him for the third time.

“What has he done to assure people about messaging rather than attacking confusion and trying to sow doubt about what the Government is doing.

“I think there was a very different fun at the beginning of this pandemic and I think it’s a great pity he hasn’t taken it.”
