‘This country is angry’: British MP makes powerful speech about No 10 Christmas party

Guardian, 09 Dec 2021
Labour MP Dr Rosena Allin-Khan has given a powerful and emotional speech in parliament in response to news a Christmas party was held at Downing Street last December while London was under Covid-19 restrictions. ‘Working in intensive care, I wept behind my mask as three children talking, to their dying mother on an iPad, begged her to wake up’, Dr Rosena Allin-Khan said. ‘While parties were held at Number 10.’ She asked Boris Johnson during Question Time, 'How does the prime minister sleep at night?'
