Rayner says: ‘We’re nowhere near testing enough, the government has to start testing’, and criticises Hancock for returning to work too soon.

Iain Dale: Which Starmer will we get as Labour’s new leader this weekend? Radical Starmer? Or Safety First Starmer?

“We can’t just fragment. We have got to come together. There has been a culture where people have felt they have not been welcomed.”
