A shocking revelation has emerged from an inquiry into the UK’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. According to reports, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak made controversial statements about the government’s response to the crisis during a meeting with then-Prime Minister Boris Johnson on October 25th, 2020.
In his diary entry on that day, Patrick Vallance, the government’s chief scientific adviser on the Covid-19 pandemic, detailed a meeting attended by Boris Johnson and Sunak. During this meeting, Sunak reportedly suggested that the government should “just let people die” instead of implementing a second national lockdown. This revelation has sparked outrage and controversy.
However, Dominic Cummings, Johnson’s top adviser during the pandemic, relayed what he heard at the meeting to Vallance. In response to this news, Sunak’s spokesman stated that the British Prime Minister will present his position when he submits evidence to the inquiry instead of addressing each part individually.
The inquiry is investigating the UK’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, which has resulted in over 220,000 deaths. The investigation is expected to continue until summer 2026. As more details emerge from this inquiry, it will undoubtedly have significant implications for politics and public opinion in Britain.
