We all want to get back to normal, but not at the cost of the putting lives at risk

Commenting on the Government for easing lockdown in England, Gary Smith, GMB General Secretary, said:

"It's very easy for the Prime Minister to say we should take 'personal responsibility' when his Government has prioritised politics over science throughout this pandemic.

"Of course we all want to get back to normal, but not at the cost of the putting lives at risk – and many of them will be the workers who risked everything to keep the country moving throughout the pandemic.

"Any notion of a ‘Freedom Day’ must mean workers are free to stay safe, but the absence of proper leadership from this Prime Minister means that won’t be the case.”
