Letter: I Call On Our MP to Get Justice for Those Who Did Obey the Covid Rules

My experience is in common with many thousands of others.

My father died last year as a result of Covid, after having been granted only a handful of visits by his care home in the preceding months.

We couldn’t have a proper funeral with only a handful of mourners present and no sort of reception afterwards; just nodding goodbye in the car park. The family were still not allowed to gather in full to console each other at Christmas. My father and family made a huge sacrifice for the common good.

In contrast, some people at Number 10 did not even sacrifice their annual glass of wine and cheese with colleagues last year. Their values cannot align with mine and I believe they have lost the privilege and honour of serving the nation by being at the heart of government.

I therefore call on our MP Angela Richardson to do everything she can to ensure all those involved (including those who could have stopped it) face justice and are removed as quickly as possible from office.

My family and I, and the many others who made similar sacrifices for the common good without praise, thanks or any glory, surely deserve nothing less?

The Guildford Dragon has already invited Angela Richardson to comment on this subject.

    The government and our PM are moving at the speed of a snail to establish whether parties took place downstairs from the PM’s flat. Now it reported that the man who has been denying it, the communications director who attended and gave out prizes, was there.

    Sadly I have no confidence that the truth will out in the announced investigation.

    I very much regret that Boris Johnson is unfitted in every way to continue in the High Office of Prime Minister and should resign. He brings disgrace on his political party (and I am apolitical, having held an office that I had to discharge without fear or favour to all sections of the community I served) and the government of the United Kingdom.

    He also, by association, sullies the reputation of those members of Parliament who are trying to do their best to serve their communities.

    First, let me articulate my condolences to Rebecca and her family for the heartbreak that they have all endured. I can’t imagine how they must be feeling. I have been lucky so far and haven’t lost anyone close to me in the pandemic. I am so very grateful for that.

    What the government that Angela Richardson serves have done is beyond the pale. If there is no genuine acknowledgement of just how toxic this is for “normal people” who followed the rules (or didn’t and were punished) then the game truly is up. This time Boris Johnson can’t blame anyone else. He is on his own here. Angela Richardson needs to come out and publicly condemn her Tory leadership for what it has enabled.
