COVID News Latest: Boris Johnson Tells Downing Street News Conference Plan B Restrictions Will Continue For Longer

Olivia Utley, our Assistant Comment Editor, said Sir Keir Starmer "went off the boil a bit after starting off very strong" by getting into a "lawyerly way".

"The way he went on and on about all the details, I could see from the office people were switching off a little bit. Which given what a bad situation this is for Boris Johnson didn't seem great from Starmer.

"That David Davis intervention was just so shocking, and you've got Wakeford sitting behind Starmer and it did look very, very bad."

Mutaz Ahmed, our comment journalist, said he thinks Sir Keir "should have been a little more serious" but it has been a "terrible week" for the Prime Minister.

"It's clearly much bigger than Sue Gray now. These MPs are thinking about the last two years, the fact there's basically been no agenda... The policies and communications were handled poorly, whatever side of the Covid debate you were on, and they're thinking about the next three years.

"Talk about Operation Red Meat. Apart from some BBC reform, what really is there? What is levelling up? So it's now much bigger than Sue Gray and that's where the danger is because it's much more difficult for the Prime Minister to extricate himself from that mess."
