“Absurd” for Boris Johnson to insist lockdown parties didn’t break the law - former police officer MP

March 30, 2022 5:13 PM

Wendy Chamberlain MP, President LDERBoris Johnson is still refusing to accept that the law has been broken at parties held by his staff while the rest of us were locked down because of Covid (some of which he attended) despite 20 fines being issued by the police.

Liberal Democrat Chief Whip and former police officer Wendy Chamberlain said: "It is completely absurd that Boris Johnson still won't accept that the lockdown parties in Downing Street broke the law.

"This stubborn denial flies in the face of the evidence. It shows that Johnson hasn't learnt any lessons from this scandal and is still taking the British people for fools.

"As a former police officer I know what people do to get out of answering questions. These excuses wouldn't cut it then and they won't cut it now with the public."

Wendy Chamberlain is the only former female police officer in Parliament. She served for 12 years in Lothian and Borders Police.
