The comments made by Alex Norris, the Shadow Minister for Public Health, on 17 September 2020.
For weeks, people across the country have been struggling to get coronavirus tests. But rather than fixing problems, the government have instead resorted to a blizzard of blame shifting and excuses.
Now, out-of-touch ministers have got a new message to those who can’t get tests: ‘stop complaining and praise us’.
Jacob Rees-Mogg should immediately apologise. Whining about the public not being grateful enough won’t sort anything – only his government can fix the testing shambles they are presiding over.
