Time for Bosworth's Conservative MP to condemn Boris Johnson
Responding to the ITV video which shows Downing Street staff laughing last year about a Christmas party being held, Hinckley and Bosworth Lib Dem parliamentary spokesman Michael Mullaney said:
"Bosworth's Conservative MP must condemn Boris Johnson's behaviour and apologise on behalf of their party.
"Boris Johnson's Conservative party is taking this country for fools. People in this area will see right through his poor excuses and evasive answers.
"People in Hinckley and Bosworth spent their Christmas away from loved ones, and sadly too many, lost family and friends to this awful virus. At a time of great sacrifice when the pandemic was at it's worst, it is disgraceful to think that people in Downing Street were laughing about holding a Christmas party
"Enough is enough. This government must be held accountable to an inquiry into all their rule breaking; from Barnard Castle to this latest episode. It cannot be one rule for them and another for the rest of us.
"I was really disappointed that Bosworth's Conservative MP having been called for Prime Ministers Questions failed to mention in his question any condemnation of Boris Johnson for his behaviour over this as many other MPs did and the way it has undermined the efforts to contain the virus".
