Starmer says Johnson isn’t fit for office in wake of party revelations

Boris Johnson is not fit for office and “mired in deceit and deception,” according to Labour’s leader.

Sir Keir Starmer made a speech at the Fabian Society in London on Saturday morning. The focus of the speech is health, but he used it to criticise the embattled Prime Minister.

The opposition leader said Boris Johnson is “not fit for office”.

“We all need the security of knowing that the NHS is there for us when we need it. That will be what my contract will offer and I can’t stress how badly it is needed. Rather than concentrating on getting through the pandemic and bringing down waiting lists, this self indulgent Tory Party is having a fight about a leader who they should have known from the start is not fit for office.

“Boris Johnson is too preoccupied defending his rule breaking and as day follows night, when it comes to the National Health Service, you could never trust the Tories on the NHS. We are witnessing every day, the broken spectacle of a Prime Minister mired in deceit and deception and unable to lead. But whilst the Tories bicker and fight each other on WhatsApp, I want to look to the future because the NHS faces new challenges.”
