Labour MP Kate Green told Sophy Ridge this morning that the party supports a national circuit-breaker, adding: "We have to try something different." When Ridge questioned whether a national two-week circuit-breaker was on the cards, Mr Gove bluntly responded: "No." Mr Gove said: "It would seem to me an error to try to impose on every part of the country the same level of restriction when we know the disease is spreading more intensively and quicker in some parts of the country. "The nature of the spread of the disease is different in this wave than it was earlier this year. "It seems to be wrong to impose restrictions on economic and personal lives in parts of the country where the disease is not spreading intensely." He went on to criticise Keir Starmer for his latest demand for the circuit-breaker, saying the Labour leader appears to "take a position whenever it suits him".
