Ashfield Council Leader Tells MPs 'It's Time For Boris To Go'

Ashfield Council Leader Tells MPs  'It's Time For Boris To Go'

Leader of Ashfield District Council has written to MP’s Lee Anderson, Ben Bradley and Mark Spencer to publicly ask them to add their names to growing calls for Prime Minister to stand down. 

He marked the 30,000 positive COVID case in the Ashfield District to tell the MP’s that Boris had “…lost all moral authority to lead the country.” 

This was following Boris Johnson admission that he’d attended a party in his garden at 10, Downing Street on 20th May 2020 – whilst the country was in lockdown.     

Councillor Zadrozny said, “In the week that Ashfield saw its 30,000 positive COVID case – we see a Prime Minister dragged to Parliament to admit he’d broken COVID rules.  People in Ashfield tell me they are livid – they tell me they won’t be following anymore rules.  That puts lives in danger and the Prime Minister is increasing becoming a public health liability.   

 “We are in a position in Ashfield that we have the Government’s Chief Whip Mark Spencer and the leader of the Nottinghamshire Council Ben Bradley as members of Parliament who are increasing influential in Government affairs.  Lee Anderson also represents us.  It’s time for Boris to go – 456 residents in the Ashfield District have sadly died of COVID – everybody knows somebody who was impacted by COVID and cases of depression and anxiety have rocketed – yet we have a Prime Minister who has clearly broken the rules that we all lived under.”   

 In his letter to the MPs – Councillor Zadrozny said, “As you know, just weeks before the party at 10, Downing Street that the Prime Minister attended – on 7th April 2020 former Chairman of Ashfield District Council – my good friend Anthony Brewer sadly died of coronavirus.  He died alone and frightened as his family couldn’t be with him due to rules as set out in the Coronavirus Act 2020.  Due to the same rules – some of grandchildren couldn’t even attend his funeral.   

 “Over the past 48 hours, dozens of Ashfield residents have been in touch with me telling similar stories.  Businesses have gone bust, our pubs, cafes and restaurants were forced to shut their doors for months on end.  Over 1000 residents and retailers received fixed penalties for breaking the same rules that the Government have broken.”   

 Councillor Zadrozny has asked the MPs to the join the calls for the Prime Minister to resign and send and publicise a letter to Sir Graham Brady, Chairman of the 1922 Committee confirming this.  If Sir Graham receives 54 letters from Conservative MPs – it will automatically trigger a leadership election
