Keir Starmer: Johnson and Sunak ‘busted’ for thinking rules don’t apply to them

Keir Starmer MP, Leader of the Labour Party, commenting on the U turn by Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak over being pinged and self isolation, said:


“This Conservative Government is in chaos. Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have been busted yet again for thinking the rules that we are all following don’t apply to them.


“The public have done so much to stick to the rules. At a time when we need to maintain confidence in self isolation, parents, workers and businesses will be wondering what on earth is going on in Downing Street.


“The way the Prime Minister conducts himself creates chaos, makes for bad government and has deadly consequences for the British public.


“Yet again the Conservatives fixed the rules to benefit themselves, and only backtracked when they were found out. They robbed the bank, got caught and have now offered to give the money back.”
