Asked PM at #LiaisonCommittee what Govt was doing to stop new South Africa variant spreading in the UK. Asked why people have been able to travel from SA to UK for last 4wks without being tested & can go on public transport.

PM didn’t know. Said he’d look at it ..1/6
PM told me pre-travel tests were coming in (Good)

But they arent in place yet (4 wks after we were warned on SA).

Other countries introduced those tests months ago. So I asked why the tests hadn’t been introduced in November as Spain, Greece & others did. No explanation ...2
PM refers to quarantine measures since 8 June. But @CommonsHomeAffs was told today of huge weaknesses in border & quarantine arrangements - 90% of passengers not even checked to see if they filled in the forms, even less follow up later on. Why wasn’t system strengthened? ...3

Seriously. There’s something not right. He’s really struggling to answer simple questions #johnson #LiaisonCommittee
When asked (by a ‘Conservative MP) what to say to his constituents who’ll refuse to obey #corona rules given his chief advisor didn’t, @BorisJohnson answers ‘all the more reason’ for clear rules... like ‘wash your hands’.

Seriously. Is he ok?

Yvette Cooper vs Theresa May. Now that would be a Brexit debate for the ages!

(If you missed it - and I must admit I did too, though I've seen some juicy snippets - YC dismantled TM in #LiaisonCommittee meeting, eventually brushing her aside completely because of non-answers.)
