DOWNING STREET ANTICS POTENTIALLY GRAVELY UNDERMINES PUBLIC HEALTH COMPLIANCE

Revelations of a number of parties - referred to as "gatherings" by the Minister - in 10 Downing Street, as the country prepared for a Christmas lockdown last year are truly shocking, particularly as so many sacrifices were being made throughout the UK and we were isolated from family and friends.

I challenged the absence of leadership from the top of the UK Government which gravely risks fatally undermining compliance with public health measures, just as we risk entering a new wave of Covid19 variant which could cost lives.
