Responding to the news that the Prime Minister attended a rule breaking party in Downing Street, Shabana Mahmood MP said:
“The Prime Minister has finally been forced to admit what everyone knew—that when the whole country was locked down, he was hosting parties in Downing Street.
“Whilst the people of Birmingham suffered unimaginable loneliness, hurt and grief during the pandemic, the Prime Minister partied. It is insulting and offensive.
“It is utterly ridiculous that the Prime Minister seems to suggest he had no idea he was at a party. He has had ample opportunity to be straight with the British public. He is now taking us all for fools.
“It is shameful to hide behind an internal probe, spokespeople or civil servants. It is time for him to really take responsibility.
“He must do the decent thing and resign.”
