This is Barnard Castle on steroids
Davey: Boris Johnson must self isolate
The Leader of the Liberal Democrats, Ed Davey, is calling on the Prime Minister to self-isolate or risk derailing his own programme to open up the country.
Ed Davey warns that by refusing to self isolate as millions of others have done, he will destroy the test and trace system entirely.
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey said:
"The Prime Minister is making a mockery of the sacrifices millions of people have made. His decision to duck self isolation is callous and irresponsible.
"With Covid cases going through the roof and hospitalisations growing, the Prime Minister's "Freedom Day" gamble is looking more and more reckless.
"Through refusing to self isolate the Prime Minister is effectively destroying the whole test and trace system.
"This is Barnard Castle on steroids. Johnson mustn't do a Cummings."
