PM must go now

Matt Walker, Vice Chair of the Liberal Democrats in Harrogate and Knaresborough wrote to Andrew Jones MP, Member of Parliament for Harrogate and Knaresborough last night urging him to join the calls for Boris Johnson’s resignation.  

Commenting Matt Walker said “Yesterday we heard an evasive apology from the Prime Minister for hosting a garden party at the height of lockdown. This is just one of many recent allegations made about Government representatives and officials breaking the rules during the pandemic, but none so clear cut as the occasion on 20th May 2020. 

At that moment the nation remained frightened of the virus. The death toll was climbing. Pubs and many shops were closed. But it gets worse than that. Local residents were deprived of precious final moments with family and loved ones and were forced to attend funerals via Zoom. 

How, especially at this moment in the pandemic, the Prime Minister thought it appropriate for a bring your own booze bash in his back garden is totally beyond every reasonable person I know.” 

Our MP must say enough is enough from the PM and all those who attended this party and call for their removal.
