Boris Johnson U-turn: Who is really in charge at Downing Street?

GBNews published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson U-turn: Who is really in charge at Downing Street?” – below is their description.

“There is certainly a lack of structure…the Downing Street decision making process is certainly suspect.”

Tim Montgomerie, commentator and former adviser to Boris Johnson, asks who is really in charge at Number 10 after the PM’s u-turn over isolating.

This comes after the Prime Minister abandoned plans to avoid quarantine after being contacted by NHS Test and Trace following a furious political backlash.

The Prime Minister and Chancellor Rishi Sunak had originally planned to take daily tests rather than self-isolate following meetings last week with Health Secretary Sajid Javid who has tested positive for Covid-19.

But in a dramatic turnaround Downing Street said the two ministers would be self-isolating rather than taking part in a daily contact testing pilot.
