Despite Consistently Supporting and Enabling Government, Keir Starmer Says Coronavirus Inquiry Into Boris Johnson Is ‘Inevitable’

More Empty Soundbites From Keir Starmer

Sir Keir Starmer has criticised the government and Boris Johnson, stating that their coronavirus response has been “slow,” and that “an inquiry is inevitable.” Starmer’s comments come, however, despite his constant support and enablement of the Tories’ actions since becoming Labour leader.

As of this afternoon, the United Kingdom has recorded a staggering 285,000 cases of COVID-19 infection and and official figure of over 44,000 deaths according to the Johns Hopkins University tally. The figure of 44,000 is believed to be much higher given the government’s dubious methods of recording deaths.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, Johnson’s government has faced intense criticism from many quarters for their incompetent response in the face of a national disaster. However, Starmer has not been one of those voices, stating in April that he intended to “work constructively” with the Tories and in May that he “want[ed] to support the government”.

Despite his own weak stance on the government’s actions coming under scrutiny from Labour members, Starmer is now calling for an enquiry in Johnsons, stating that “an inquiry is inevitable” that will take place “in due course.”

When pressed as to when such an inquiry will take place, Starmer had no answer, merely stating that “at the moment, I think it is important that we focus on the job in hand.”

After hitting Johnson with what seems little more than rhetoric on an inquiry, Starmer added that Johnson had not “led us through this crisis in the right way. He is good on the rhetoric but he is not good on governing.”
