It seems the revelations of lockdown parties at 10 Downing Street are becoming so commonplace it’s now becoming difficult to keep track of them all.

At the time of writing, it’s just emerged that not one, but two Downing Street parties in breach of COVID rules, were held the night before the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.

By the time you read this, it is not inconceivable to think that even more rule-breaking by Downing Street staff or UK Government ministers may have come to light.

I was present in the House of Commons last week as the Prime Minister gave his toe-curling apology over attending a party held in his own back garden on 20 May 2020.

The UK had been in lockdown for two months and people across the country were banned from meeting more than one person they did not live with outside their home.

Despite his principal private secretary inviting more than 100 government employees, from numerous departments to ‘bring your own booze’ and ‘make the most of the lovely weather,’ Boris Johnston expects us to believe he didn’t realise he was at a party.

One would have thought the trestle tables laden with goodies would have given it away, if nothing else.

The Prime Minister previously told Westminster he had been assured there were no parties, before pretending to be furious parties had been held.

Now, it’s clear he attended at least one lockdown-breaking party, he insists he did so whilst blissfully unaware it was a party.

This is beyond the bounds of credulity and frankly, Mr Johnson is taking the public for fools.

We all knew the rules; millions of people couldn’t visit loved ones in hospital, gather in their own back gardens with more than one other person, or even attend funerals.

We have all seen pictures of The Queen, alone at her husband’s funeral the day after Downing Street parties took place.

That picture epitomised the terrible, heartbreakingly difficult sacrifices many people made to follow the rules, protect the NHS and save lives.

Yet while millions struggled with loneliness and isolation, the Prime Minister and his staff flouted the very public health restrictions he and his Government introduced.

Responding to news that the Tory leader in Scotland has finally realised what a liability the Prime Minister is and called for his resignation, the Leader of the House, Jacob Rees-Mogg MP chose to belittle Mr Ross by calling him ‘lightweight.’

I challenged England’s Health Secretary Sajid Javid MP over these remarks, asking if he thought UK Ministers attacking fellow Tories for criticising flagrant and serious COVID lockdown breaches is conducive to encouraging public compliance with the health measures still in place.

There was no answer.

The Prime Minister’s credibility in regulating and issuing public health instructions is in tatters and his constant misleading of Parliament and the public cannot continue. He must resign.

Scotland must become an independent country, so we can determine our own future and escape the broken Westminster system for good.
