If cleaners lodged complaint after #DowningStreetParty, why was it treated as such a surprise?

Sue Gray: she’s the investigator appointed by Boris Johnson. But shouldn’t she actually be investigatED?

After a lockdown-busting drinks party in the garden of 10 Downing Street in May 2020, the cleaners lodged a complaint about the state in which it had been left, it has been revealed.

Worse: according to the iNews report, it is apparently not clear which May 2020 party they were complaining about.

We know there were booze-ups on May 15 and 20 that year. Who knows what other events took place?

With parties known to have been taking place between May 2020 and April 2021 at least – for all we know, they were happening right up until the first revelation last month – it seems entirely possible that the complaint relates to a previously-unreported event.

source told the paper No 10 staff had been unhappy with the state the garden was left in.

“They’d had to clean up the morning after,” the source said. “They weren’t happy.”

But the insider did caution that this may have been after a different social event.

Nothing was said about it in public at the time – even though the entire country was in a lockdown that separated families from their relatives as they died of Covid-19, as has been reported at great length since the revelations started coming out last month.

It seems to This Writer that questions should be asked about why this information – which is important to our understanding of the way the UK is being run – was withheld from the public.

Were these cleaners pressurised to keep quiet about it?

Were there moves within the Downing Street administration to hush it up?

Considering the revelation earlier this week that staff there have been told to erase details of Downing Street parties from their mobile phones – a criminal offence – this seems likely.

It would suggest – strongly – that the people running Downing Street need to be part of Sue Gray’s investigation.

But Sue Gray is a civil servant and one of the people running Downing Street. Doesn’t this show that she is compromised and should investigated, rather than the investigator?

Tory ex-immigration minister mysteriously avoids £20,000 fine for employing illegal migrant

[Image: Political Scrapbook.]

Here’s some dynamite from Tom Pride:

According to the UK government’s own web page – the fine for employing an illegal migrant worker is £20,000.

Tory minister Mark Harper employed a cleaner – Isabella Acevedo – who was dragged from her daughter’s wedding ceremony and deported last week when it was revealed she had embarrassed Harper by not having all her valid documents.

For some unexplained reason, however, Harper himself – who was recently given a new ministerial job by Cameron – has not been fined £20,000.

An employer won’t have to pay the fine if he or she can show a valid reason for employing an illegal migrant worker – however being unaware of the fact is not considered to be a valid reason.

So what exactly is Harper’s “valid reason” for not being fined?

That he’s a government minister and a good friend of Cameron?.

Of course – irony of ironies – it was Harper himself who as immigration minister introduced the fine for employing illegal migrant workers.
