You want to know why I'm so intent on seeing #Johnson face accountability?

Back in 2020 my aunt fell Ill with Covid. She was a kind, sweet and incredibly generous woman who helped raise me. She always had a cheeky smile and didn't have a single malicious bone in her body.
She died, alone in a hospital. No family or friends allowed to be with her in her final moments. There was hardly anyone at her funeral. Again, gatherings for such weren't permitted. The rules at the time, of course, to prevent the spread of Covid.
Meanwhile, those very people creating said rules were holding parties, believing themselves above the rules that we - the little people had to abide by - did not apply to them. While my aunt died alone, they were getting drunk. "Ambushed by a cake".
We weren't the only family that had to deal with such. Thousands lost family, friends, mothers, fathers, children. Their goodbyes said behind a panel of glass, or even worse on an iPad.
Many more were fined for breaking the rules, however unwittingly. Thousands of pounds in some cases, because they had a small gathering for a birthday, a celebration etc. Ignorance was no excuse. It was the law of the land. No one was above it, apparently.
That's not counting the weddings that had to be cancelled, work lost, medical treatments delayed, family separated. Heartbreak and personal sacrifice too numerous to mention.

But it was ok. The country was pulling together to avert an even larger crisis.
And while they endured hardship, those making the rules gathered. They partied. All those things that were given up by the general public were made a mockery of by the very people who supposedly knew better.
That these people thought themselves above the law that the rest of us had to follow was bad enough. But then, to lie about it. Not once, not several times, but a continuous litany of falsehoods, mistruths and mendacity in order to avoid personal responsibility for their actions.
And when finally caught out on his lies, the one responsible for ALL of it had no contrition, no remorse save for getting caught in the act.
He has lied to the British public, the UK Parliament. He has shamed not only his party, but the country. He has tainted everything and everyone around him by his corruption, his greed, and his feckless criminal negligence.

And what is his response? He smirks. He laughs.
He believes himself untouchable, unassailable. All through a lifetime of privilege and failing upwards.

In short, he is an utter disgrace, not only to Parliament, but to the human race. He is completely unfit for any kind of office.
And so, to those @Conservatives MPs who condone his behaviour, his ducking accountability, his predilection for hiding away from scrutiny in ever increasing childish ways... I say this:
I dare you - any single one of you - to look me in the eye. To look anyone in the eye who lost a loved one while he partied. And tell me you're proud of his actions, that you don't feel shame.

Because I tell you this. As much as you want it to, this is not going away.
This will not blow over. For as long as he remains, he will be an albatross around the neck of you and your party.

What happens next will be on you.
And for the Tory MPs who *do* claim to have a conscience, when will you be submitting your letters to the #1922committee? Have you sent them?

If not, why not?
@Conservatives @Tory_Grassroots he has brought shame to you and your party. He has no honour, no decency, and zero integrity.

He is a shambles, and a disgrace.

You know it. We know it.

He must go.
