Alex Norris MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Public Health and patient safety, calls on Jacob Rees-Mogg to apologise over coronavirus testing comments
Alex Norris MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Public Health and patient safety, responding to Jacob Rees-Mogg’s comments over coronavirus testing, said:
“For weeks, people across the country have been struggling to get coronavirus tests. But rather than fixing problems, the government have instead resorted to a blizzard of blame shifting and excuses.
“Now, out-of-touch ministers have got a new message to those who can’t get tests: ‘stop complaining and praise us’.
“Jacob Rees-Mogg should immediately apologise. Whining about the public not being grateful enough won’t sort anything – only his government can fix the testing shambles they are presiding over.”
