Keir Starmer backs Christmas restrictions, but says PM left it too late

“Yet again, the Prime Minister waited until the 11th hour to take this decision,” the Labour leader told an online press conference.

The Labour leader told an online press conference: “I think the Prime Minister should apologise. This is not just one mistake when he has otherwise got things right. It is the same mistake over and over again.

“We can’t go on like that. I think that it is very important that the Prime Minister does apologise to people for his handling of this episode of the pandemic.”
