Wes Streeting responds to the Prime Minister’s latest remarks on coronavirus

Wes Streeting MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, responding to the Prime Minister’s remarks following a Cabinet meeting to discuss the rise in Omicron cases, said:

“Boris Johnson is too weak to stand up to his own backbenchers, many of whom have no plan beyond ‘let the virus rip’.

“Today, while businesses across the country wonder if they can continue to trade, and families make frantic calls about whether they will see each other this Christmas, true to form the Prime Minister has put his party before the public.

“Rather than set out a clear plan for the country, he has chosen to protect himself from his own MPs by simply not saying anything. Boris Johnson is unfit to lead.”
