Labour Party Conference 2020 Angela Rayner: ‘Bullingdon Club blagger Boris Johnson always blames others for own failings’

LABOUR deputy leader Angela Rayner accused PM Boris Johnson today of always pinning the blame on others for government failings over the last several years.

Speaking at the party’s virtual conference Labour Connected, she said: “Never has there been a prime minister more out of his depth and ill-equipped to the task than this Bullingdon Club blagger.”

She suggested that Britain could go into a second national lockdown because of his “failure and incompetence.”

Ms Rayner added: “[Mr Johnson] lights up Downing Street green for Grenfell and then whips Tory MPs to block the Grenfell inquiry recommendations.

“He claps for our carers when it suits him for a photo opportunity but he doesn’t even know what they earn and won’t pay them what they deserve.

“He calls a Covid war cabinet to allow grouse shooting when the front-line staff can’t get the tests they need and people can’t say goodbye to their loved ones.

“Yet it’s always somebody else’s fault: civil servants, the public health body they voted to create in the first place, or even the public for doing the right thing and trying to get a Covid test.”
