  • Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Keir Starmer: Christmas relaxation of Covid rules is Boris Johnson’s ‘next big mistake'” – below is their description.

    Plans to relax Covid restrictions over Christmas were an error, said the Labour leader, as swathes of England have either entered or will enter tier 3 this week with mounting cases and hospitalisations. But Boris Johnson has resisted calls to reverse the five-day relaxation, instead urging the public to take individual responsibility. ‘The prime minister should take the hard decisions, not hand them over to individuals,’ said Starmer.
