LONDON, United Kingdom- “Boris Johnson and his team are taking the country for fools. We need the report from Sue Gray’s independent investigation as soon as possible and Boris Johnson needs to face the consequences of his actions.”

This is according to Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner following allegations that United Kingdom Prime Minister Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson personally attended a drinks party in the garden of No 10, the headquarters of the Executive Arm of the British Government, during the first lockdown.

Boris broke the rules again?!

Senior civil servant Sue Gray is investigating the May 20, 2020, event as part of her inquiry into numerous allegations of rule-breaking events being held in No 10 during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to PA Media on January 8, 2022, allegations of that gathering, said to have been attended by 40 people, emerged this week when Dominic M. Cummings, the former Chief Advisor to PM Johnson, said he had warned at the time the “socially distanced drinks” would likely be against the rules and “should not happen”.

But the front-page report suggesting Mr Johnson himself was present will add to the seriousness of the claims.

PA Media said Downing Street did not immediately deny a report in the Sunday Times alleging that the Prime Minister attended the potentially rule-breaking event with wife Carrie in May 2020.

The newspaper cited three sources stating Mr Johnson’s principal private secretary, Martin Reynolds, emailed officials with an invite adding “BYOB”, meaning bring your own bottle, or booze.

‘Culture of total disregard for the rules’

Rayner said: “The culture of total disregard for the rules seems to have been embedding into life in Downing Street from the very start of the pandemic.

“When much of the country was struggling with empty shelves and a total lockdown with no meeting with other allowed, it seems No 10 we’re hosting parties from the very start.

Ironically, Johnson has backed a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) into the Virgin Islands based on unsubstantiated claims of corruption and victimisation.

The CoI was called by a governor who was accused of being antagonistic towards the democratically elected Virgin Islands Party Government led by Premier and Minister of Finance Hon Andrew A. Fahie (R1).

The CoI has not uncovered any clear instances of corruption or victimisation.

    All the worldwide politicians are taking people for fools and it’s working because most people aren’t awake while there’s many the majority are still asleep. Most politicians know they won’t have this kinda power again if they let it go. That’s why for their sake it can’t come to an end. They rather make the public addicted to an experimental drug even though they know other doctors and scientists have been warning us about the short and long term effects this can cause. They love how they have so many people waiting to for instructions to tell them what to do next because the government cares soo much about your safety and health. Boris and all others like him just playing the game and trying to see how much they can get away with while it last. This generation have been soften, you can’t speak your mind without getting canceled, there’s no real men anymore, everyone just goes along to get along. Especially if you introduce the fear mongering, everyone just sit and stare at their tv screens waiting for orders on what to do with their lives. No matter how much you lie to them or how many times these politicians are exposed. People don’t care, people don’t care for the truth anymore. For example in the beginning they told every once you took two doses the vaccine will make you immune from catching the virus, spreading the virus and keep you out of the hospitals. Fast forward to now no one remembers all these politicians preaching these lies to us. That’s why us as people in the BVI and I love my home but damn we got the memory span of a goldfish. I won’t be surprised if we are one of the last Caribbean countries to get back to normalcy because we obey like no other and forget like no other. Until we had enough this will be our lives, our kids lives and our grand parents last memory of life. This will forever be our reality until people make a stand. A stand not for us adults but for our children.
