Jeremy Corbyn would have handled Covid crisis worse than Boris Johnson: Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Martin Fletcher, Flanders Court, Thorpe Hesley.

I have voted Tory since around 1975. And I lived in North London. So I am not a Yorkshire lifelong Labour supporter.

Those who voted Tory in this election up here will mostly wish they had not, but Jeremy Corbyn would have been worse.

I do not blame the Conservatives for the Covid-19 virus. No party would have done any better.

Jeremy Corbyn is the former Labour leader.

I do blame them for most of these other problems. Boris Johnson loyalists are no good if they are useless.

From: Peter Hyde, Driffield.

I have come to the conclusion Boris Johnson is merely a mouthpiece for Dominic Cummings, the Prime Minister’s chief aide. To see and hear Boris is almost akin to watching President Donald Trump.

Neither seems able to answer a question without waffling on, and both seem to do their best to blind the questioner with some science they know little about.

Boris Johnson's leadership, and quality of his Cabinet, continues to be called into question.

From: Jarvis Browning, Fadmoor, York.

All retired politicians should stay out of today’s politics.

They would not have retired in the first place if they still want to do things.

It’s all very well saying what they would do today – which they failed to do when they had the opportunity to do so.

Education Secretary Gavin Williamson presided over the exams scandal.

From: Peter Rickaby, West Park, Selby.

Restaurants, pubs and cafes are full, people flocking to eat. Yet offices remain empty, not safe to enter. Poppycock!
