Boris Johnson has attacked Labour leader Keir Starmer in his keynote speech in Manchester.
He said Labour had acted throughout the pandemic with “all the conviction of a damp tea towel”.
The prime minister called him “Captain Hindsight” and suggested if Labour had their way that the country would still be in lockdown.
He said: “Did you see them last week, did you watch them last week in Brighton?
“Hopelessly divided, I thought they looked.
“Their leader looked like a seriously rattled bus conductor, pushed this way and that by a Corbynista mob, sellotaped-spectacled soggy lot.
“Remember Labour’s performance during the pandemic? Flapping with the conviction of a damp tea towel.
“They refused to say that schools were safe, they would have kept us in the European Medicines Agency and slammed the brakes on the vaccine rollout, and the Labour leader attacked the vaccine taskforce for spending money on outreach to vaccine-hesitant minority groups.
“The human weathervane, the starmer chameleon.
“In his final act of absurd opportunism he decided to oppose step four of the roadmap in July.
“That’s right folks – if we had listened to captain hindsight we would still be in lockdown.
“If Columbus had listened to captain hindsight he’d be famous for having discovered Tenerife.”
