Cllr Matthew Dorrance has written to Fay Jones MP, Craig Williams MP, James Evans MS and Russell George MS requesting they 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, Cllr Matthew Dorrance said that “it is behaviour that needs calling out, no matter political persuasion”, and cited the anger that local people are feeling as a result of the party. Despite Boris Johnson’s “apology” at Prime Minister’s Questions important questions remain unanswered.
Commenting on the letter, Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“People across Powys 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.
“Conservative politicians in Powys must choose – are they on the side of people who followed the rules to protect the NHS and save lives, or the out of touch UK Tory Government who treats those people with contempt.”
