Letter To My MP About No 10 Drinks Party

January 14, 2022

Following on from Rory Kinnear’s heartbreaking article published in the post above, I thought I would share the letter I recently wrote to my MP about ‘that’ drinks party.

I am a physically disabled woman. When Corona hit in 2020, I locked down completely. I lost five months of physiotherapy between April 2020 and January 2021 across two lockdowns as the committed, caring health professionals who have provided me with lifesaving physiotherapy since birth also locked down completely, putting the health of their patients above everything else. I believe I lost physical abilities as a direct result of this, which are only now slowly returning, thankfully, after a year of continuous appointments.

On a personal level, I stopped visiting my father who is a pensioner and also locked down completely, requesting me not to even enter his home, in which he lives alone, for the first three months of lockdown for our mutual protection. I will never get that time back in either area of my life.

I kept the rules made by Mr Johnson for the protection of myself and those around me. For the same reasons, I would do so again but the least I expect is that the person who creates the rules and repeatedly asks me to keep them will lead by example.

Sadly Mr Johnson forgot the sacrifices made by the ordinary people in the country he leads. His moment of madness on the evening of May 20th, 2020 leaves me heartbroken at the thought of the sacrifices I made over lockdown.

I thought Mr Johnson did his best in a difficult situation for the safety of the country and so over lockdown, I positively changed my opinion of him. Now, however, it is time for him to make a public apology in an 8pm news conference, similar to the one in which he announced the very rules he went on to break, closely followed by an announcement of his resignation.
