Partygate: MP Richard Bacon says NHS staff may have broken rules

A furious mum wants all of Boris Johnson’s Covid fines refunded following Sue Gray’s account of numerous boisterous lockdown parties at Downing Street.

Stanley’s Amanda Martindale says revelations about the spate of beatings taking place during the pandemic at No. 10 “mock” lockdown rules.

She has also called the paltry fines imposed on the Prime Minister, his wife Carrie and Chancellor Rishi Sunak for attending these parties “absolutely disgraceful”. Chronicle Live reported.

Her son Alex has been fined £1,100 for attending a gathering of seven at a house in Prudhoe, Northumberland, on March 20, 2021 during the third national lockdown amid Tier 4 restrictions. The fine rose to £1,600 after Alex failed to pay.

The 23-year-old was eventually able to hand over the money thanks to a family loan – but after revealing the Prime Minister had paid just £50 for his lockdown breach, Amanda believes it’s ‘one rule for her and another for everyone else’ is.

The Met Police previously announced that a total of 126 fixed penalty notices have been issued to 83 people in connection with events in and around Number 10.

These included fines for Boris Johnson, his wife Carrie and Chancellor Rishi Sunak. Those £100 penalties have been reduced to £50 because they were paid within 14 days.

Amanda said: “It’s absolutely shameful. £50 is nothing to her – £1,100 for a 23-year-old is a lot of money. For them it’s just loose change in their pocket – Rishi Sunak is a millionaire and he’s fined £50, it’s a joke.

“It just makes a mockery of everything they said and I can’t believe he was such a liar when he said all the rules were being followed.

“It’s absolutely disgraceful and I think (the Prime Minister) should reimburse all the people who have paid their fines – he can afford it.







“It’s absolutely embarrassing,” says Amanda

“They just seem to be sweeping it under the rug and I think with this government they are using something else, like the war in Ukraine, which I know is very serious, to try to make us forget the parties to let.”

The County Durham mother said the country’s leader was treated more leniently than her son and questioned why the Prime Minister was only fined while others at events where the Sue Gray report said he was with been fined.

According to Ms Gray, the Prime Minister was present at a total of eight of the events listed – noting that some events were only brought to her attention based on media coverage “it is possible that events have taken place which have not taken place under the investigation”.

After September 2020 laws were amended so that the penalty for breaking lockdown increased with the number of offenses – for example the fine for a sixth breaking lockdown event was £6,400 compared to £100 for a first offence.
