A good crisis?

I was not at all impressed three days ago when Shadow Education Secretary Kate Green said coronavirus was a ‘good crisis’ to exploit, and she has still not apologised.

CCHQ have suggested this shows that Labour are more interested in playing politics than working in the national interest, and frankly, I think they have a point.

  • When Sir Keir Starmer became Labour leader, he said he would work constructively with us through the coronavirus pandemic, not just opposition for opposition’s sake.
  • But three days on, and his Shadow Education Secretary has still not apologised for her appalling comments saying, ‘I think we should use this opportunity, don’t let a good crisis go to waste’.
  • Sir Keir Starmer should condemn these comments. His continued failure to take action can only be seen as an endorsement of playing party politics with this crisis.
