The final release of the Sue Gray Report was today on the 25th May 2022. This is the finalization of the Parte-after-Parte gatherings at the Downing Street 10 & 11 during the lockdowns in the United Kingdom. It is detrimental to break it down. Since this is showing how reckless and ruthless the Prime Minister and his associates was in this time. This report just shows how far and what the people in and around the Prime Minister was doing. The Prime Minister is responsible for this and as a Head of State should set an example, instead he has showed what not to do.
Everyone who followed the strict regulations and stories of saving your neighbour. Should be shocked, furious and be inflamed about this report. You don’t even need the details of every event. Just the insights of the context and the actions made. This was done under the roof of the Prime Minister, the man who enforced and was the face of the government, which was setting the rules on the population. He should be first one to follow the rules and lead from the front. Instead, his office and his home became partly party-station in the middle of the strict lockdown rules.
Just read these quotes here…
“As I said in my 31 January update it was not for me to make a judgment on whether the criminal law had been broken: that is properly a matter for law enforcement bodies. Further to that on 19 May 2022 the Metropolitan Police announced that they had concluded their investigation. They confirmed that they had made 126 referrals for Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) to the ACRO Criminal Records Office for breaches of Covid-19 regulations in relation to events on the following eight dates:
- 20 May 2020
- 18 June 2020
- 19 June 2020
- 13 November 2020
- 17 December 2020
- 18 December 2020
- 14 January 2021
- 16 April 2021” (Sue Gray report, May 2022).
The COVID-19 Lockdown legislation:
“From 26 March 2020 the law in England required everyone to remain in their homes unless certain, very limited, exemptions applied. Restrictions were temporarily eased over the summer period in 2020 until most remaining national restrictions were removed on 4 July 2020. Restrictions were then reintroduced in gradations in the autumn culminating in the UK Government announcing from 5 November 2020 restrictions on movements and gatherings in England, essentially requiring people to stay at home. Restrictions on gatherings of two or more people applied in London through December 2020 and the first months of 2021. Indoor mixing of two or more households was not permitted again until 17 May 2021” (Sue Gray Report, May 2022).
Harsh words for the gatherings:
“At times it seems there was too little thought given to what was happening across the country in considering the appropriateness of some of these gatherings, the risks they presented to public health and how they might appear to the public. There were failures of leadership and judgment by different parts of No 10 and the Cabinet Office at different times. Some of the events should not have been allowed to take place. Other events should not have been allowed to develop as they did” (Sue Gray Report, May 2022).
The usage of Downing Street 10 and 11:
“The use of the garden at No 10 Downing Street should be primarily for the Prime Minister and the private residents of No 10 and No 11 Downing Street. During the pandemic it was often used as an extension of the workplace as a more covid secure means of holding group meetings in a ventilated space. This was a sensible measure that staff appreciated, but the garden was also used for gatherings without clear authorisation or oversight. This was not appropriate. Any official access to the space, including for meetings, should be by invitation only and in a controlled environment” (Sue Gray Report, May 2022).
This should be the finished of any man who is supposed to be noble. Prime Minister Johnson should answer for this properly. Not just try to deflect and pin it on civil servants within the Office the Prime Minister or Downing Street Number 10.
Sue Gray Report is a damning report and the PM cannot hide now. It is just showing how insincere and how willing the PM is to lie. As he has stated that the didn’t break rules or laws during the lockdowns. However, the report shows that he did.
PM cannot lean on the payment of some fines and go to sleep. This should be the scandal that ends his reign. As he disrespected his office, codes of conduct and also lost his credibility (if he had any in the first place). Boris Johnson should consider his role and position. I know he never will, because he takes no accountability for his actions. This is no different and he doesn’t carry the weight of his actions here either.
The Sue Gray should be his end, but don’t expect it. The Tories will excuse the Ukraine war to cover for him. Because, the PM has to handle that crisis and serve for that now. Since no one else could do that or be in dialogue with Kyiv. A liar, drunkard and inept PM shouldn’t be kept just because there is war in Europe. No, he should answer and fall for his actions. There is to many people who was touched and lost their loved ones during this global pandemic. The Tories blocked people from going to funerals, weddings and visit their elderly in the nursing homes. While the PM and his associates was parting like no tomorrow.
The Prime Minister should do the right thing, but that’s not something he knows about. He rather lie and cheat… instead of doing the what is proper. Peace.
