(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has today claimed that Boris Johnson’s government is ‘overwhelmed’ by the coronavirus pandemic that has gripped the nation.
Mr Blair, who now heads up the Tony Blair Institute, also highlighted that ‘mass testing must be at the heart’ of the government’s strategy to defeat the virus that has so far claimed 17,337 lives in the UK.
Mr Johnson has been out of action while recovering from the virus with Domnic Raab taking over the helm, liaising with key ministers such a Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain today, the 66-year-old said he was offering ‘constructive advice and not criticism’, but said the government needed to be ‘re-organised’.
