Britain needs a government focussed on defeating Coronavirus not fighting among themselves – Angela Rayner

Angela Rayner MP, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on reports that Conservative MPs could challenge the Prime Minister’s leadership over a path out of lockdown, said:

“The Conservatives have presided over the worst recession of any major economy and worst excess death rate in Europe.

“The British people need a government that is committed to defeating this virus and getting Britain vaccinated. Instead, the day after our country recorded the highest daily death toll since this crisis started, the Conservatives are playing politics and fighting amongst themselves.

“Labour is focusing on getting Britain vaccinated so we can secure our economy, protect our NHS and rebuild our country.”
