Boris Johnson on the EU, yesterday: “I’m afraid these threats reveal the spirit in which some of our friends are currently minded to conduct these negotiations.”

I asked Boris Johnson today if he recognised that the #Covid-19 crisis has exposed grotesque levels of inequality within our society, and that yesterday's statement has given carte blanche to many employers to force people back to work.
