PMQs: food fight breaks out over free school meals scandal

BY Saffron Swire   /  13 January 2021

New year, same old shambles. Today marked 2021’s first Prime Minister’s Questions, the first in almost a month and in the case you were hoping for a smoother ride this time around, you are in no such luck. When the clock struck 12, it was time for the main players to take to the green pitch. On one side we had Captain Hindsight of the reds, Sir Keir Starmer, and on the other side, we had Captain Brexit of the blues, Boris Johnson.

The Leader of the Opposition, Marcus Rashford, Sir Keir Starmer, was quick to kick the first political football: the vaccine process. Starmer nasally asked his opponent when the round-the-clock vaccine centres would be open and rolled out to the public. Interestingly, Starmer’s question provoked Johnson to commit to the 24/7 rollout, as Johnson replied that “we would be going to 24/7 as soon as we can.”
