Yesterday Boris Johnson u-turned and backed Labour’s proposal to remove the NHS charge for health professionals and care workers.
This is a victory for common decency.
We cannot clap our carers one day and then charge them to use the NHS the next.
When we emerge from this crisis we cannot go back to business as usual. We must value our carers, NHS staff and key workers who have saved lives and kept the country going. They deserve proper pay, better working conditions and a vision of a better society.
Since I was elected leader I have been saying that together, as a united Labour Party, we can build a fairer future. Yesterday, we proved it by forcing the government to change direction.
