The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 15 February 2021.
The public will not forgive the UK government for getting this wrong.
Revelations regarding the shortcomings of the current arrangements expose the fatal flaws at the heart of the Government’s half baked, quarantine policy – it is unworkable and bound to be ineffective.
This creates an unacceptable risk to the health of the British people, undermining the hope and progress being made on the vaccine. The Home Secretary should get a grip of this mess, introduce a comprehensive hotel quarantine system urgently and play her part in securing the health of the country.
