Recent from The Telegraph:
The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “PMQs: Boris Johnson defends Covid-19 strategy as he faces backlash over Tier 3 restrictions” – below is their description.
Sir Keir Starmer says that “the widespread fear is that Tier 3 is the worst of all worlds, bringing economic harm without bringing the virus sufficiently under control”. He says it is a “gateway to months and months of agony, to which there is no likely exit”. Mr Johnson says he has “made it absolutely clear that part of the country going into Tier 3 is only in there for 28 days”. He insists areas that have gone into Tier 3 “are already making progress”. “We are pursuing a local, a regional approach which is the sensible approach for this country,” he says. “I want to thank local leadership in Merseyside, in Lancashire, in London, the West Midlands and elsewhere for what they are doing.” Mr Johnson accuses Sir Keir of “incoherence when he wants to plunge the whole country back into a national lockdown for weeks on end”. He says “he has no clue” on how Sir Keir would respond. Subscribe to The Telegraph on YouTube ► https://bit.ly/3idrdLHThe Telegraph YouTube Channel
