Me and my siblings made the difficult decision to watch our Gran's funeral on webcam that day, rather than attend in person. Under normal circumstances we would have gone, but the restrictions at the time meant the ~8 hours (each way) journey and (likely) overnight stay would have been extremely isolating.
It seems we could have done whatever we wanted after all, as saying "oops, I misunderstood the rules!" is a real life 'get out of jail free' card.
But, is there really?
Most people ive spoken to while around and about seem to think hes been a bit of a idiot and hypocrite, but dont actually care much at all and by the time elections roll around it will all be forgotten.
She reports to a PPS I believe so is investigating her bosses, so hardly independent. I am sure she will employ some very weaselly legal manoeuvring.A work event lol. If that is what Sue finds then she is as corrupt as Bozo's government.
It really banks on the investigation I think. If it's determined to be work event, then what?
Can someone remind me where in the lockdown guidelines it stated that large groups of people could still gather for drinks as long as it was a work event?
That is indeed what it comes down to.
If it was a work event, then he hasn't broken the rules (even with the drinks). It's not different to the garden pictures we saw a few weeks ago.
Well you know the answer to this. However, it also didn't say that all work events are banned just, "work from home if you can".
you are forgetting boris misled the house with his selective memories - he had plenty of opportunities to declare the event, and get it blessed by the public,Lol some people who work together at Downing Street sat outside
The thing is both my parents died around that time, I attended the funerals and don't like to think about the weeks leading up to that time.
However I can't get worked up about this party stuff, it won't bring them back or change anything and if you expect any other uk politicians to behave better you are going to be sadly disappointed.
At the end of the day people couldn't visit relatives to protect themselves and their relatives. Boris and his coworkers were just putting themselves a little bit more at risk. The rules weren't in place for the fun of it.
I can't see myself ever voting again anyway, I'm extremely disillusioned with all of them.
People say our forefathers died so we had the freedom to vote. Yeah well our politicians should respect that by behaving with maturity and integrity. They need to earn our votes.
