Boris Johnson’s Conservatives are laughing at Erewash
8 December 2021
Responding to the video showing senior Number 10 figures laughing about last year’s Downing Street Christmas Party, Adam Thompson, Erewash Labour’s Secretary said:
“In 2020, 206 people died from Covid-19 in Erewash. Countless more lost loved ones. We missed special moments, gave up on a family Christmas, and in many case lost the chance to say goodbye. The people of Erewash followed the rules.
“Now it is clear that not only did Boris Johnson’s Downing Street fail to follow the rules, they laughed about it and then they lied about it. They are laughing at every single person in Erewash who did their best to help our community get past this terrible virus. And now they are lying to our faces.
“Again and again and again with this government, they let us down then they lie – and now we know they are laughing at us behind the scenes. It’s one rule for them, another for everyone else.”
