The rule of law is the last defence against unaccountable political power, yet #DowningStreet is proposing to put itself above the law - in what I call in my Letter to @thetimes today 'tantrum politics'.
Husband's aunt died in November last year. The funeral was limited ,
we couldn't hug anyone.
She died alone in hospital after having no visits in her care home for months, where she deteriorated.
This bastard government couldn't care less about any of us.
Here’s the reality: If Labour voters back the Liberal Democrats in North Shropshire, the Conservatives will lose their seat in a historic, embarrassing and utterly crushing defeat. And it will be amazing.
Dear Allegra Stratton
On the day you partied, my mother called me, breathless and feverish. I didn’t visit. On the day you joked, she was admitted to hospital. I didn’t visit. As you celebrated Christmas, she died without family by her side. I promise you, it wasn’t funny.
EXCLUSIVE: Video obtained by ITV News shows Downing Street staff joking about a Christmas party on 18th December last year.
No 10 has spent the past week denying any rules were broken. This new evidence calls that into question.
When I think that my Grandma died with none of us able to properly visit her and that I didn’t go to her funeral to follow the rules. That I had to cancel my Christmas plans and leave mum in tears to follow the rules. And these absolute fuckers were partying & laughing about it.
For as long as I can remember I visited my sister and her family on Christmas Day, except for last year. I couldn’t go because of lockdown and covid rules, while Downing Street were partying. I will never see her again at Christmas because she died in May of Motor Neurone Disease
My Mum spent last Christmas on her own while my Dad was in hospital with covid, he didn’t last till New Year. She couldn’t say goodbye to him and I Couldn’t hug her at his funeral because of covid rules. All while the government partied. #WhoWasAtTheParty
My family followed the rules. My kids put up with a shit Christmas. My nearest and dearest didn't visit. Our neighbours didn't come around. We did what we were told. We did what was asked of us. Meanwhile the staff at Downing Street thought it was all just a f*cking jape.
@BBCRosAtkins@PaulBrandITV Sick to death of him. If this doesn’t get rid of him what will? He’s brought the whole way this country is run into disrepute and dragged a wrecking ball through any decency and truth. And now when we need leadership he’s going to cause rebellion.
