I voted for the Conservative Party in the last election, so I have every right to be angry with Boris Johnson for his party antics.
My mother died in a care home where I was unable to see her for more than six weeks before due to Covid regulations. I didn’t have a chance to say a final goodbye.
My mother’s coffin was sealed in the Chapel of Repose and only about 15 people were allowed to attend her funeral.
Yes, I am annoyed that the man who made these regulations had meetings with his buddies. I would vote for it Boris once again? Damn right I would.
No other politician would have managed Brexit like he did. Or step a foot inside Ukraine like he did. It’s time to forget about partying and move on.

Looking at the media and the opposition’s uproar at the prime minister unknowingly attending a birthday “party” – for which he has apologized profusely – one would have thought they could focus on more important matters.
The world is at a critical juncture with Putin’s murderous invasion of Ukraine and his nuclear threat hanging over us.
Boris has done more than virtually any other leader to remain firm in his support for Ukraine, both in dialogue and in arms. Its President Volodymyr Zelenskyy expressed his heartfelt thanks to him.
But that doesn’t bother shameless opportunistic individuals who want to get rid of Boris at any cost.
For my part, I will continue to support Boris. The alternative of Captain Hindsight Sir Keir Starmer and his motley crew at the helm is hard to imagine.
Harry Hodge, Aldershot, Hants
OUR Prime Minister was mocked, berated and hung out to dry by his haters over the Partygate fiasco.
But the fine and the apology are not enough for some people. you want blood
Get off his back. The parties are now history. There are far more important issues. As Boris says: “I have things to do”. It’s time to move forward.

There are far more important things in the world these days than a couple of sausage rolls at a nine-minute party.
Jamie Williams, Dunstable, Betten
For my part, I will continue to support Boris. The alternative of Captain Hindsight Sir Keir Starmer and his motley crew at the helm is out of the question.
I’M TIRED of the mass hysteria over the lockdown ‘parties’ at No10.
These people worked together on a daily basis, so they were in close proximity anyway. I wonder how many people can honestly say they haven’t broken lockdown rules at some point.
There is so much else in the world to worry about. Poor Ukrainians must think that we don’t care what happens to them.

WHAT will Labor and the Lib Dems – and the country – gain from Boris Johnson’s resignation?
With war raging in Ukraine and people here struggling to make ends meet, the last thing we need is a leadership election.
It will take months, destabilize the government and be detrimental to our current problems.
Ken Pennington, Stalybridge, Cheshire
BORIS JOHNSON and his Conservatives made a huge mistake throwing parties against lockdown but calls for his resignation are ridiculous.
I don’t even vote for Tory, but I see the point in letting the man do the job he set out to do. At the next election, the voters will have their say.
It is of NO benefit to this country if he is forced to resign now.
He has to get ahead and keep his many promises.

With war raging in Ukraine and people here struggling to make ends meet, the last thing we need is a leadership election. It will take months, destabilize the government and be detrimental to our current problems.
A YOUGOV poll says 57 percent of voters want Boris to step down as prime minister.
I bet the majority of them don’t want him gone under any circumstances. Let him get on with the job, hopefully helping get Ukraine in order and our cost of living under control. Who would be his successor?
Peter Chester, hull
PARTYGATE certainly needs to take a back seat in the face of the Ukraine war, rising taxes, the cost of living crisis, illegal migrants and eco-idiots disrupting the fuel supply. Efforts must be focused on these urgent problems.
For all his mistakes, Boris has shown his leadership qualities in handling the Ukraine war. He will need a similar grip on the home front to demonstrate that he should continue to lead his party and country.
Lesley Evans, Walsall, West Mids
WOULD anyone blame Boris Johnson or Rishi Sunak if they step down and tell the country to find someone to replace them?
Constant criticism of an incredibly minor incident two years ago would be enough for most people to break up.
Jez Dawson, Woking, Surrey
Thats is quite easy. Yes Boris, we accept your resignation with immediate effect. Our once great country is upset that you take decent citizens for granted.
Gary Lilley, South Shields
HYPOCRISY is widespread in Downing Street. The prime minister and chancellor both flouted their own rules, but Boris denied their actions did so.
It seems to me that they have neither conscience nor self-respect.
Michael Frost, Romford, Essex
I AM delighted that Boris, Carrie and Rishi have been fined for lockdown violations, but it’s too little too late for my liking.
And a £50 fine if they pay outright is a drop in the bucket for these people. I’m only happy when Boris clears his desk and leaves.
Hit them where it hurts, at their P45, not their wallet.
