A damning report today condemns the Tory government for their dreadful mishandling of the Covid crisis, with repeated blunders causing chaos that cost thousands of people their lives.
The headlines alone write the story of a Conservative cabinet more concerned with providing multi-million pound contracts to their friends, that blew £37 billion on a failed test and trace system, mismanaged the procurement of vital PPE that left NHS and care home staff in danger and who handled the crisis in care homes so badly that thousands died.
It has been described as the biggest public health failure in history, but these findings will be small comfort to those who are mourning loved ones or who are living with the lasting impact of contracting the virus. Locking down even days earlier could have made a massive difference.
This incompetent government has failed when the UK needed them the most, but worse they failed whilst lining the pockets of their mates and making sure they were okay while families across the country struggled. They are shameless and shambolic, and as you may have seen this morning they are unapologetic. That is shameful.
