Boris Johnson faces criticism after a video showing an employee talking to an employee at the government’s Afghanistan Crisis Center.
The prime minister’s approach was branded by critics as “light” and “don’t care,” and some critics likened the footage to the nasty scene of a comedy hitting a wall.
In a video aired on the BBC’s Newsnight program, the Prime Minister approached employees and said: I have some of them. “
Widely shared footage on social media has sparked criticism from opposition politicians.
“This is the current person in charge,” said Luke Pollard, the shadow cabinet minister of the Labor Party, saying there are still people, including children waiting to evacuate.
Liberal Democratic Party leader Ed Davey said:
“The email he mentions is from a desperate family and friend who are worried that the Taliban will kill their loved ones.
“Perhaps if Boris Johnson understood and planned the dangers of Kabul’s evacuation, thousands would not have been in jeopardy.”
The chief of the army announced on Saturday morning that the evacuation of British civilians from Kabul ended today and that the last British military personnel would be evacuated soon.
The Prime Minister on Friday night talked about his “great regret” that some people were unable to evacuate Afghanistan.
He states: “Of course, when it comes to the last hours of surgery, sadly, some people haven’t passed, and some may qualify.”
