The UK government has said that the £60,000 bereavement payment to the families of health workers killed by the coronavirus will not apply to care workers, porters or hospital cleaners.
The Tories have also said that families of the deceased have no automatic right to remain in the UK. Families of people who died trying to keeping us safe and well could face deportation if their right to remain is withdrawn.
Johnson and his fellow Tories will no doubt still make sure they are filmed ‘clapping for carers’ tomorrow.
