UPDATE 10:43 AM PT – Monday, December 13, 2021
Britain’s Opposition Leader, Sir Keir Starmer, is denouncing the hypocritical behavior of government officials who held a party at 10 Downing Street while recommending a COVID lockdown for citizens.
“Well, if the prime minister allows breaking the rules, the parties, the quizzes going on in Downing Street when we’re told not to see our loved ones, then why should I follow the rules? Rule?” he asks.
Starmer said on Sunday Prime Minister Boris Johnson was personally responsible for that scandal and that he believed this was unacceptable.
“You know, we could argue all morning about what regulations should be, whether this measure is necessary or that measure is necessary,” he explained. “The key question is: will the public follow the rules? And so of course there’s the question of what the conditions should be, but there’s also the fundamental question of trust and that’s broken with the prime minister and that’s why he’s unfit. for the position. ”
Johnson’s aide Allegra Stratton, who laughed when asked about that party, was forced to resign while the MP said they expected more resignations from Johnson’s cabinet because of the scandal.
“I will regret those comments for the rest of my days”
