Mike Graham: Coronavirus doom-mongers are ‘enemies of the recovery’

Thursday, May 14, 2020

Mike Graham has angrily criticised some of the responses to the government’s plans to ease the coronavirus lockdown.

Speaking on talkRADIO this morning the presenter said: “Another day and another dollar for all those naysayers and doom-mongers desperate to find something negative to complain about in the midst of the worst health crisis the world has seen this century.

“As the government attempts to get the country back to work and to some semblance of normality, the stooges continue to stand in the way.

“All of these people are enemies of the recovery, they are wilfully drumming up fear and concern, they ought to be ashamed of themselves.”

Mike also accused the Guardian newspaper for its headline today that said “Ministers face new claims of failing to prepare care homes for outbreak”.

He said the paper’s remarks were “all terribly predictable, all terribly negative and all terribly of no use at all”.

It follows claims made by several workers unions that the government’s roadmap for employers to return to work could put people at risk.

The Rail, Maritime and Transport (RMT) union said busy Tube services showed “just how fraught with danger the government’s return to work call is for our transport services.”

Several education unions also urged the government to “step back” from it planned phased reopening of schools.

A joint statement said: “The government is showing a lack of understanding about the dangers of the spread of coronavirus within schools.”
