Cover-up complete: civil servant Sue Gray told to leave details of vast majority of Downing Street parties out of her report – then after it was delivered yesterday, police announce no one will be named from their investigation
The cover-up of pandemic lawbreaking by Boris Johnson and his Downing Street cronies is complete. Civil servant Sue Gray delivered the report of her investigation yesterday and Johnson spent a little while dodging Keir Starmer’s noodle-armed slaps in the Commons chamber and even getting the best of the exchanges by accusing Keir Starmer’s front bench of taking illegal drugs, without any demur from Starmer and co. But Gray had left out of her report any detail of 12 out of 15 parties Johnson and co attended while the rest of the nation suffered, and on an industrial scale died, in isolation because of Covid – because the Metropolitan Police had asked her not to report on any parties they were investigating.
And now the report is done, the same Met Police have announced that if anyone is fined for the parties they are investigating – a majority and the most serious by definition – they will not name anyone who is fined as a result, even though their action will have been held to be criminal.
Johnson and co will fork out a fine or three that they can afford without turning a hair – but no public shaming or confirmation of the scale of their contempt for the law and the people.
That, folks, is how the Establishment machine works and shamelessly so. And tragically for the nation, Keir Starmer is just as much a part of that machine as his buffoon of an opposite number.
