A person who looks like Boris Johnson, wearing suit and a yellow safety jacket, is saying “Care homes simply failed to follow the advice we did not provide”. He is standing next to a digger, with words on the side that read “How long can we get away with this?”.

    1. Far be it from me to consider the Prime Minister other than a serial liar, who is wholly unfit for the job and who heads one of the most incompetent cabinets of my 70+ years, but the infection rate, death rate and procedures followed in care homes needs to be examined. The majority of these are privatised and the role and duties of the owners has not been examined in the public media. Managers have been interviewed, but, they are employees. We have see almost nothing of the owners and, for example their contractual duties towards those living in the homes and their duty of care to their employees. This has been as much an omission within the ‘left’ media as with the rest. Indeed, early in the epidemic, the Morning Star quoted, without identification, a statement which had been issued by the owner of a number of care homes, an active member of the Conservative Party and a funder of a right wing unionist organisation, which attacked the Scottish Government.
