Angela Rayner comments on reports that Boris Johnson said Covid was ‘only killing 80-year-olds’

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Shadow Chancellor for the Duchy of Lancaster, commenting on reports that Boris Johnson said Covid was ‘only killing 80-year-olds’ in bid to dodge lockdown, said:

 

“These comments are utterly disgraceful.

 

“Boris Johnson was too slow to introduce not one but three lockdowns, which left us with the worst death toll in Europe.

 

“The Prime Minister has once again shown a shameful disregard for other people’s lives.”
