Nicola Sturgeon’s face mask demand slapped down by Tory minister ‘Value is limited!’

Yesterday Scotland’s First Minister issued advice on the Scottish Government’s website calling for members of the public to wear face coverings. This morning George Eustice told Dan Walker that Public Health England remains sceptical regarding the value of face masks. The Conservative MP stated that face coverings have a limited impact in preventing the coronavirus from spreading. 

Mr Walker said: “What is the Government advice on covering faces?

“I think this is something where there has been a lack of clarity.”

The Environment Secretary replied: “I think there has been clarity actually.

“Public Health England are quite sceptical about the value of face masks.

“The Chief Scientific Advisor has made this clear that it has a limited impact in preventing the disease being spread onwards but it doesn’t give protection to the wearer of the mask.”

Yesterday Ms Sturgeon said during her daily coronavirus press conference: “I want to address face covering, an issue that has attracted lots of attention lately.

“Guidance on this issue has just been published on the Scottish Government’s website.

“I want to stress a very important point and ask you to bear this in mind.

“I am talking here about face coverings made of cloth or other textiles such as a scarf.

“I am not talking about a medical-grade face mask that you would see health and social care workers wearing.

“The guidance we are publishing today makes clear that the most important step we can take to limit transmission of the virus is to comply with the current stay at home social distancing rules.

“Face coverings are not a substitute for any of that.”

School closures UK: Piers Morgan hits out at Khan on GMB ‘we’re the ONLY nation in Europe’

At the first of his daily coronavirus briefings yesterday, Boris Johnson confirmed that schools will be kept open for now “for all sorts of reasons”. Many European countries, including France, Germany and Italy, have all closed down schools to fight the outbreak. ITV Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan grilled Mayor of London Sadiq Khan over the refusal to shut UK schools.

Mr Morgan said: “I’m getting so many people, teachers saying ‘my health matters, why am I being put into a situation where I’m almost guaranteed to get infected and then maybe take it back to my family?’

“You’ve got parents taking their kids out of school.

“I know that my daughter goes to a French school. All of them have locked down, they’ve sent all the kids home now.

“But most London schools remain open, many teachers won’t be there so what quality of teaching will people be getting anyway?”

The ITV host added: “What is the logic behind saying we don’t want people gathering in large numbers but still having a situation where twice a day hundreds of parents and nannies all congregate with many kids who will probably be carrying this without much of a problem, but may then be affecting the adults?”

Mr Khan responded: “This was raised many times, without breaching confidences, at COBRA yesterday.

“The advice is that it makes very little clinical difference in relation to closing schools.

“But that advice may change in relation to what we do know. Some teachers may be pregnant or others may have underlying health issues.”

He continued: “A child may have a persistent cough or a temperature which means that mum, dad, carer decides to withdraw the child.

“We’re approaching Easter, which is still about two weeks away for most schools and school holidays.

“But I wouldn’t be surprised if over the course of the two weeks before Easter, Government advice changes.”

“Most other countries have now shut down schools.

“I saw a piece in one of the papers today.

“We’re almost the only country now in Europe which is keeping schools open.”

The Government’s chief scientific advisor, Patrick Vallance, confirmed that “at some point” it may be necessary to think about school closures.

ITV GMB row: Francois shuts down Remainer Christian in angry Brexit clash ‘You LOST twice’

Conservative MP Mark Francois pointed out British voters chose Brexit “twice” after the broadcaster claimed the result of the European Union referendum was “based on lies.” Terry Christian kicked off the fiery clash by asking how could Britain “look to the rest of the world” after leaving the bloc but Mr Francois reiterated the commitment of the country to independence pointing out voters chose to leave on two separate occasions. Mr Francois told his ITV Good Morning Britain co-panellist: “Democratically, they voted for it. Like it or not. 

“They voted for it twice.”

Brexit played a pivotal role in the campaigning of all major UK parties in the run-up to the December general election, which returned the Conservative Party a majority of 80 seats. The result was seen as a clear signal from voters to get on with the withdrawal process after two and a half years of chaotic negotiations.

But Mr Christian persisted: “They voted for it based on lies. They voted for it thinking the EU was responsible for our immigration.”

The statement forced GMB host Susanna Reid to intervene to point out “the EU is partially responsible for our immigration.”

But unperturbed, Mr Christian continued: “We could have reduced the presence of migrant workers by 80 percent without leaving the EU. Non-EU immigrants, we could have reduced 100 percent. 

“What’s happening at the moment is nobody is saying what are the tangible benefits of Brexit.”

Mr Francois was then urged to make his case in favour of Brexit but he was repeatedly interrupted by his fellow GMB guest as he attempted to speak.

The Tory MP said: “We would take back control of our own laws…Making your own laws doesn’t mean anything? Let me get a word in.

“Here’s your fact – the people voted to leave in the 2016 referendum.

“It was a democratic vote and they voted again, emphatically, in a general election to leave again.”

Mr Francois added: “Terry, you lost. Your side lost, twice. 

“You were defeated, twice.”

Mr Francois, a staunch supporter of Brexit, had hoped the Government would agree to have Big Ben chime at 11pm on January 31 to mark Brexit Day.

But despite a crowdfunding campaign trying to collect enough money to fund the temporary use of the bell towers, attempts fell short of their goal and Big Ben will not bong.

A clock counting down to the moment the UK leaves the EU will be projected on to Downing Street.

The Prime Minister will also give a “special” address to the nation in the evening, the Government said.

A special 50p coin will also enter circulation to mark the occasion.

Mr Johnson is expected to be one of the first people to receive one of the newly-minted 50p coins, which will bear the motto “peace, prosperity and friendship with all nations”.
