So latest line is “hard working staff needed a break”
When my colleagues & I were working 13 hour night shifts last Xmas, we were working hard
But we didn’t get a party. We made sacrifices for sake of others
Clearly, we were all mugs for believing we were “all in it together”
When Allegra Stratton married James Forsyth, political Editor of the Spectator - the best man was Rishi Sunak. The lines between our journalists - expecially those at the Spectator and Sun - and our politicians have never been more blurry. And that is a very big problem.
The government played with our social, mental, physical & even financial well-being for years…people were killed through their policies or lack of enforcing them…they’re at fault for historic tragedies like Grenfell…but it’s a Christmas party that’s gonna get ‘em outta here.
The great tragedy is that Allegra went to work for Boris Johnson to become a bit of a household name & the face of Downing St. Now she’s become famous for all the wrong reasons & he’s thrown her under the bus. I don’t think it would have been her decision to lie & style it out.
Last year we stayed in at Christmas, we ate cheese and pickle toasties, there was no party, no celebration unless you count seeing a hundred reflected toasties in a Glitterball. My old Dad was on his own at Christmas for the first time in his life. Boris is mocking us all.
