A UK Government minister has attacked Wales’ approach to the coronavirus pandemic.

While being questioned on the Andew Marr show about the UK Government’s hugely unpopular decision not to provide meals for poor children in school holidays, Northern Ireland secretary Brandon Lewis launched into an attack on Wales’ coronavirus policies.

He said: “We have got to have a structure where…people have the confidence what we are doing is logical and lead forward properly.”

Then pointing to the fact that Wales’ health minister Vaughan Gething had been on the program earlier refusing to reverse the decision to ban the sale of non-essential items in supermarkets, Mr Lewis said that Wales was a “test bed” for socialist authority.

He said: “One of the challenges we are seeing in Wales which has been clearly highlighted that it has become a test bed for left wing socialist authority, coming out with these crazy outcomes and we have make sure we don’t have that more widely across the country.”
