Lawmakers should not be lawbreakers.
Boris Johnson and the equally
reckless Rishi Sunak have both been fined for their involvement in
Downing Street lockdown parties. They are the first sitting PM and
Chancellor who have broken the law in office.
The shock and the anger won’t

apparent democracy where it’s one rule for our leaders, and another
for the rest of us.
Write today - and speak up
against a whole system of lies.
