Keir Starmer challenges Boris Johnson on Covid-19 rule confusion


Sir Keir Starmer asked how members of the public are supposed to understand the rules when Boris Johnson does not understand them himself. Sir Keir told the Commons: “One of the major problems, as we’ve seen in the last 24 hours, is widespread confusion about the local restrictions and I don’t just mean the Prime Minister not knowing his own rules – having sat opposite the Prime Minister at PMQs every week that didn’t come as a surprise to me.“Let me quote to him the Conservative council leader in Bolton, a Conservative leader. He said this about the Government’s handling of restrictions: ‘it’s breeding resentment, it’s become too complex, too complicated, people feel very let down and very frustrated and very forgotten’.
