No, Tories: Downing Street Christmas parties ARE important to us. They’re about your HYPOCRISY

This is a terrible image with which to illustrate this story, as Johnson’s glass was only filled with water (we’re told), it’s not in Downing Street, and the parties there were allegedly packed full of people. But it’s the only one I have in which he’s got a drink in his hand.

The UK’s Tory government has had a busy few days trying to live down its latest scandals:

I’ll cover the latest Hancock scandal in another article. As for the Downing Street parties:

According to the Mirror, Boris Johnson hosted a series of parties at Downing Street during November and December 2020, where attendees were packed “cheek by jowl” with each other in direct defiance of Johnson’s own Covid-19 social distancing rules – rules that the rest of us were under legal obligation to obey.

While London was under Tier 3 restrictions, Tories knocked back bucketloads of wine, played party games and received presents from their Secret Santa.

Around “40 or 50” people were said to have been crammed “cheek by jowl” into a medium-sized room in Number 10 for each of the two events.

“It was a Covid nightmare,” one source claimed.

[And a source] even suggested there were “always parties” in the flat Mr Johnson shares with wife, adding: “Carrie’s addicted to them”.

The party on December 18 last year took place on a day when 489 people died with Covid-19.

They were isolated from their families, meaning hundreds of people were prohibited from saying a last goodbye to their loved ones while Tories raved it up “cheek by jowl” in Downing Street.

Take a look at the way some of the Tories have been trying to sideline the issue:

They’re all completely wrong about whether the public are interested. Whether it’s an outright lie or they’ve been misled is another matter. Start typing an internet search on Downing Street and you won’t have to go through many letters before “Downing Street Christmas Party” is displayed.

lot of people have been looking for information on this.

One question that needs to be answered is: where where the political reporters from the mainstream media when these parties were taking place? Did they attend? And if so, did they fail to report on this scandalously hypocritical breach of Covid-19 regulations because they were too hungover afterwards, or for some other reason?

Inquiring minds want to know. How sad that the journalists in question should be among the most inquiring minds in the whole of the UK, and they simply haven’t bothered to mention this for almost a year.

And now Boris Johnson is telling us to go ahead with our own Christmas parties this year, in spite of the threat his advisors reckon is posed by the Omicron variant; in spite of the fact that nearly 54,000 people in the UK were found to be infected with Covid-19 on December2; and in spite of the fact that the UK has the highest infection and death rate of any western European nation.

There’s also the fact that Johnson didn’t bother cancelling everybody else’s Christmas until the day after he had his big Downing Street blowout – December 19 last year. We simply can’t trust him to stick to his word – especially as we can’t trust his government to protect us from the virus.

Finally, it seems there’s no point getting too het up about the prime minister having a huge piss-up in Downing Street while hundreds of our loved ones were dying alone, because the chief of London’s police has already announced that she won’t be investigating the allegations:

This Site has asserted many times that Dick is not fit to be Metropolitan Police Commissioner. Personally, I think she is too corrupt to be a serving police officer of any kind at all.

Her announcement is symptomatic of the whole corrupt set-up in Westminster now.

It really is one rule for them and another for us, enforced by their minions in the police.

    Cressida Dick was promoted to her current post after being in charge of the team that shot Jean Charles de Menezes without identifying themselves, giving warning nor attempting to arrest him. He was of course the wrong target anyway but it makes me wonder how many of those killed in such operations are actually a threat – back to the point, after doing that she STILL got promoted. Why??

    All tories (lower case ‘t’ from now on) are effing pfeffels. I propose a new entry in the dictionary i.e. Pfeffel: (noun) a liar, cheat or con artist. Can be used as a verb e.g. I have been effing pfeffeled.
