Starmer: Lifting all COVID-19 restrictions is reckless

Monday, 19. July 2021 15:46

Leader of the British Opposition described on Monday Prime Minister Boris Johnson's plan to lift all the restrictions imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19 at once as "reckless" at the moment the Delta strain of the virus, which he labeled the "Johnson Variant," "is already out of control" and leading to "a summer of chaos."

"[The] Labour [Party] does not support the government's plan. Boris Johnson's incompetence will have deadly consequences for the British public," he tweeted.

Starmer thus reaffirmed his criticism of the government's plans for reopening, saying that it is "all about headlines" and "not about public health."
