Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has yet to receive any fins for breaking lock-down protocols after he was spotted having a beer at a crowded pub in Durham on the 30th of April 2021.
high ranking Labour officials were spotted in the evidence gathered,
including Labour's shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves.
being cleared by the Durham Police, Tory MPs want the events to be re-investigated.
minister Boris Johnson and the entire Conservative Party from outside
and within were hounded by the opposition, public, and press for the
Partygate Scandal and later the prime minister's fine.
Conservative MPs now have the ability to retort against Starmer and
Labour as a hole, calling them all “Hypocrites”.
on social media have taken to calling the Labour leader “Sir Beer
Starmer”, now angry at him for breaking lock-down rules.
the Labour leader was caught having a pint, England was in it's “Step
2” of lock-down restrictions.
which socializing with others outside your bubble was against the
law, unless it was for work, socializing with colleagues in the
manner Starmer did wasn't allowed.
pubs weren't allowed to be open unless they had outside seating, and
they could only host 6 people in a single bubble or two bubbles of 3.
also important to mention that these were the same lock-down rules
Boris Johnson was fined for breaking in June 2020, leading many to
call for Starmer to be fined on those grounds too.
questions raised by all this is:
Labour's pub lunch a violation of lock-down rules?
Sir Keir Starmer lie to parliament regarding Labour “Not breaking
lock-down rules” if Durham's verdict is overturned?
the pub lunch in Starmer's words: “Reasonably necessary for work”?
hopefully will be answered soon.
