Sir Keir Starmer has been accused of "politicising the pandemic" by outraged Twitter users. The reaction emerged online following the BBC's broadcast of the Labour leader's response to Prime Minister Boris Johnson's address to the nation this week. Sir Keir took the opportunity to attack the Government's handling of the coronavirus outbreak and call for Britons to follow the rules.
Starmer slammed for exploiting coronavirus video to attack PM - 'A political broadcast!'
One user wrote: "If there was ever politicising of a pandemic then Keir Starmer doing a "right to reply" address tonight is it.
"Talk about distorting the message from the PM to the Country... The BBC is a disgrace!"
Another tweeted: "This is a party political broadcast by Starmer."
One more added: "Starmer just whinging and droning on. Why has he been given this airtime?"
