THURROCK Labour Leader, John Kent, calls on Cllr Gledhill to condemn Prime Minister’s actions
John Kent has written to the Conservative Leader of Thurrock Council urging him to publicly condemn the Prime Minister and his team for the drinks event held in the Downing Street garden in May 2020, as the country remained in lockdown.
In the letter, John Kenny said that “it is behaviour that needs calling out, no matter political persuasion”, and cited the anger that residents of Thurrock are feeling as a result of the party. Despite Boris Johnson’s “apology” at Prime Minister’s Questions many things remain unanswered.
Commenting on the letter, John Kent said:
“People across Thurrock pulled together to protect lives and livelihoods as we came through some of the darkest months of the pandemic.
“Bereaved families, our key workers and all those that diligently followed the rules have been mocked by Boris Johnson.
“Cllr Gledhill must choose – are they on the side of those who followed the rules to protect the NHS and save lives, or the out of touch Tory Government who treat them with contempt.”
