Responding to the Prime Minister’s address this evening, Scottish Greens Co-Leader Patrick Harvie MSP said: 

“The Prime Minister’s decision to effectively rip up the four nations response to Covid19 is reckless. His newly adopted slogan is vague and risks muddying the waters at a time when clarity is required to save lives.  

“Last week the UK claimed the unenviable position of having the highest number of Covid19 deaths in Europe. The UK Government’s handling of this crisis so far has been catastrophic, and the confusion caused by the Prime Minister’s latest comments could very well undermine key public health advice.”
