The Chair of Orpington Constituency Labour Party has written to our local Conservative Member of Parliament Gareth Bacon to ask for his response to the constant lies of the Prime Minster with regards to the so called “Partygate” scandal.

The letter reads below:

Dear Mr Bacon,

I am writing to you to express my feelings regarding the conduct of the Prime Minister during the “Partygate” affairs.


Firstly, he denied there were any parties, then he said that if there were any they complied with regulations. We then found out that he had attended one such party in the garden at No 10, but he said that he didn’t know it was a party, however there had been 100 invitations and “bring your own booze” instructions to invitees. Evidently the PM thought that it was a work gathering! I have to add that I have never in my working life had alcohol during work meetings, perhaps I am old fashioned!


One of these disgraceful parties took place on the eve of the funeral of Prince Philip and the conduct of the Queen the following day was an example of the dignity and integrity of a real leader – the PM should duly take note.


This scandal is gathering pace faster than the PM can change his story. This is not unusual for those with bad memories and does no credit to the PM. He must think that we are all fools to believe these continually changing tales and that a half-apology made yesterday is sufficient to allow him to revert to normal today.


I can remember quite a long way back to the 1950’s. There have been quite a number of prime ministers and not one of them from Anthony Eden up until the present has acted in such an appalling fashion.


One of the most unappealing features of this whole untruthful business is the sight of the PM and Tory MP’s using the investigation to buy time for diversions, although some have had the integrity to call the PM out. Waiting for Sue Gray to present the findings of her investigation is nothing more than a dubious delaying tactic to dodge accountability for a few more days, in short, very much like Mr Micawber, “waiting for something to turn up”!


I must ask you to take the correct course and write a letter to Sir Graham Brady, Chair of the 1922 Committee, calling for a vote of no confidence in the leadership of the Conservative Party.


Integrity is a most important quality for those involved in politics, although some say it has recently gone out of style. You are a Conservative, but I believe that you have integrity and that you will choose the correct course to follow to get the government and country out of the terrible mess into which it has fallen.


Yours sincerely,

Chris Taylor,

Chair, Orpington Constituency Labour Party

We await his response.
