Angela Rayner comments on confirmation that the Prime Minister said he would rather see “bodies pile high” than order a lockdown
Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, commenting on ear witness confirmation that the Prime Minister said he would rather see “bodies pile high” than order a lockdown, said:
“It now appears that we have confirmation that as the second wave of Covid took hold and the Government lost control of the virus in the UK, Boris Johnson’s disgraceful reaction was to say “let the bodies pile high.”
“The Prime Minister has degraded the office he holds with rampant and overwhelming sleaze. But making light of the more than 127,000 deaths that happened on his watch and then trying to cover it up is a new low. This must now end.
“The Prime Minister should apologise to all those who have lost someone during the pandemic.”
