UK gov't virus response probe inevitable - Starmer

Leader of the Labour Party Keir Starmer (pictured) said on Friday that an investigation into the United Kingdom government's handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic is "inevitable."

The inquiry will not be carried out promptly, as "it is important that we focus on the job in hand," he told Sky News in an interview. The opposition leader did criticize Downing Street's "slow" response, calling the government "asleep at the wheel."

"He's not led us through this crisis in the right way. He is good on the rhetoric but he is not good on governing," the opposition leader said of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
