Sir Keir Starmer says Government's new lockdown plan starting to 'unravel'

Credit: LBC Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said the new lockdown instructions issued by Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Sunday are already starting to “unravel”.

“What I think everybody wanted to hear was something that was pretty clear and a sense of all the countries – England, Scotland, Wales – pulling together and we didn’t get clarity,” he told LBC radio.

“I was actually quite surprised the Prime Minister said, effectively in 12 hours’ time, start going back to work without those bits in place.

“We needed that clarity and it is unravelling a bit this morning because I think the Foreign Secretary has now said ‘Well, go back to work doesn’t really mean until Wednesday’, so suddenly it has shifted.”

Starmer urges Johnson to apologise for comments on care homes

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer called on Boris Johnson to apologise for his comments on care homes.Sir Keir said: “On Monday, when asked why care home deaths had been so high the Prime Minister said, and I quote, ‘too many care homes didn’t really follow the procedures in the way that they could have’.“That has caused huge offence to frontline care workers. It has now been 48 hours. Will the Prime Minister apologise to care workers?”Mr Johnson replied: “The last thing I wanted to do is to blame care workers for what has happened or for any of them to think that I was blaming them because they’ve worked hard, incredibly hard, throughout this crisis, looking after some of the most vulnerable people in our country and doing an outstanding job.”“And as he knows, tragically, 257 of them have lost their lives.“And when it comes to taking blame, I take full responsibility for what has happened.”
