Downing Street parties: City MP responds

Responding to further evidence of parties at Number 10 last year during strict restrictions, Stephen Morgan MP said:

“While the people of Portsmouth followed the rules, made deep personal sacrifices and people tragically lost loved ones in our city, the staff at Number 10 laughed about covering up their Christmas party and took the public for fools. 

The Prime Minister should be ashamed of himself and the actions of his team who couldn’t even follow the rules.

Portsmouth people do not ask their leaders to uphold standards that are higher than them but they do expect leaders to follow rules set for everyone else – to lead by example.

This is an issue of leadership. Mr Johnson has failed our city and has diminished his ability to lead the country in a time of crisis”.
