Inquiry evidence is an advertisement for electoral reform

Best for Britain are calling on people to vote tactically at the next election and for electoral reform following explosive revelations from the Covid Inquiry this week.

 

The inquiry heard damning evidence from Boris Johnson’s Chief Political Advisor, Dominic Cummings, his Communications Director, Lee Cain and senior civil servants, who described an extremely dysfunctional and unprepared pandemic response from the Government as well as the self-interested, uninformed and offensive opinions shared by the Prime Minister and his senior team.

The revelations have rocked already low public confidence in the government with YouGov polling following the evidence suggesting that 66% of people believe that the UK is unprepared for another crisis like a pandemic. 

Best for Britain was the Secretariat of the APPG on Coronavirus from 2020-2023. A key recommendation of the APPG is for the Covid Inquiry to publish an interim report before the next general election so that voters have more information on what happened before casting their vote.

Naomi Smith Chief Executive of Best for Britain said, Best for Britain said,

“The evidence we have heard this week from the Covid inquiry paints a picture of total chaos and narcissism at the heart of government at a time when the country desperately needed mature, competent and considered leadership. 

“It is not only deeply offensive to those of us who lost loved ones during the pandemic, but utterly terrifying that these were the people responsible for saving lives.

“A system that handed almost total executive power to people who only ever had minority support but who were so obviously unfit for office, is in desperate need of reform.  

“That’s why it is vital that people vote tactically at the next election to get rid of this government and why we will continue to campaign for a fairer voting system.”
