London’s mayor: Government made ‘irresponsible promises’ about Christmas

London Mayor Sadiq Khan says moving the capital under tier four restrictions is “a bitter blow for Londoners who were hoping to spend time with loved ones safely this Christmas”.

“This continued chaos and confusion could all have been avoided had the government not made irresponsible promises to the public and raised expectations about the Christmas period,” he says.

“London faces its toughest Christmas since the war and the whole city will need to pull together to see us through this terrible period.”

Mr Khan said implementing restrictions was not enough, and the government needed to increase testing capacity, provide greater financial support and make face coverings mandatory in all busy outdoor public spaces.
