Commons bars exempted from 10pm curfew
Boris Johnson and co and have given themselves a free pass to continue drinking late into the night, while kicking the plebs out around the rest of the country at 10pm.
Bars in Parliament are exempt from the 10pm supposed to somehow curb the exponential growth of the coronavirus second wave.
During the day, meanwhile, MPs sit socially distanced in the Commons chamber and have done so throughout, while sending working people to crowded workplaces and public transport and our kids into packed classrooms despite the known dangers – with Labour’s centrist leadership as guilty as the Tories.
One rule for the so-called ‘elite’, one for the rest.
Update: the government has now denied this is happening.
