The UK home secretary, Priti Patel, has said it is not time to talk about UK government’s mismanagement of the coronavirus crisis. Patel said: ‘I don’t think this is the time to talk about mismanagement. We’ve been with this virus pandemic for about a year now.’
She has said she welcomes the incoming Biden administration in the US. Patel told BBC Breakfast on Wednesday ahead of the presidential inauguration: ‘This is a new era in US politics.’
On Wednesday, Joe Biden will assume office in a ceremony at the US Capitol, bringing an end to Donald Trump’s presidency.
