James O'Brien summed up the government decisions in the last week and asked how Boris Johnson could say he was proud of their response.

Despite Britain having more deaths from Covid-19 than any other European country, the Prime Minister said he was “very proud” of the government’s record on the coronavirus.

Speaking on his LBC show this morning, James went over the things the government did this week and then asked how he could possibly have been proud of them.

He talked about the introduction of facemasks on public transport, months after they have been compulsory in many other European countries.

He talked about the queue of MPs that Conservative MP Steve Baker labelled a farce, before voting for the bill backing it.

He talked about the plan to quarantine international travellers arriving in the UK from countries where the infection rate is lower than ours.

He talked about reports that the government's track and trace system may not be fully operational until October, according to its Chief Operational Officer.
