Boris Johnson was just hammered during Prime Minister’s Questions (PMQs) for holding a Christmas party in Number 10 last year days before Christmas, when London had tier 3 restrictions.
The Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer accused Johnson of “taking the British public for fools” and added, there is “one rule for them, and another for the rest of us.”
Small business owners around the UK are quite clearly far from impressed as whilst Johnson was breaking lockdown laws, businesses were trying to adapt to the new measures.
Jez Lamb who runs a small business called [email protected] slammed the Prime Minister as the “honest British public” complied with last years lockdown, whilst businesses were trying to adapt.
Lamb said, “I’m sat here kicking myself, as during the tough Christmas last year, I could have been flogging booze to Number 10 all along.
“That would have given my small business a much-needed lift. Next time you’re having a bash Boris, don’t forget to check us out. On a more serious note, you couldn’t make it up.
“There’s us, the honest British public, complying with the rules and trying to adapt our businesses to ensure we do things right, while our esteemed PM is popping the champagne corks with his pals in Downing Street.”
Lewis Shaw, founder & mortgage expert at Shaw Financial Services accused Boris of “contempt” with “his merry band of corrupt charlatans” at the way he continues to treat the British public.
Shaw said, “The contempt with which Boris and his merry (in this case presumably very merry) band of corrupt charlatans have treated, and continue to treat the UK public, is nothing short of a disgrace.
“Boris has the morals of a sewer rat and has done nothing but stoke division between people nationally and sow bad faith within Europe, all while treating the electorate as his pet. Yet, at the same time, he and his pals feather their own nests.
“I still struggle to comprehend how anyone could bring themselves to vote for the man, irrespective of how much Latin b******s he trots out. Bring on the revolution.”
Whilst Eddie Young, director at MisterEY Entertainment blasted the Prime Minister for the lack of support he showed “the hospitality and events sector.”
He said, “It’s OK for the PM to hold a party while the rest of us had to endure a brutal Christmas last year. Thanks Boris. Such support you showed there for the hospitality and events sector.”
