Boris Johnson should resign, says teacher who lost father to Covid at time of No 10 party


The teacher whose story was cited by Sir Keir Starmer in the House of Commons on Wednesday has called for Boris Johnson to resign.

Hannah Brady’s 55-year-old father died of coronavirus at the height of the pandemic. His death certificate was signed on May 20 2020, the day of the Downing Street party attended by the Prime Minister.

Ms Brady, 25, said the revelations about the event had made her feel “sick”, causing “pain, anguish and anger” to grieving families.

She told the Daily Mail: “If it’s proven (Mr Johnson) attended that party or he knew about it, then he should resign. It’s unspinnable. The person who’s in charge of keeping this country safe is just chipping away at his own moral authority.”

Martin Reynolds, the Prime Minister’s principal private secretary, sent an email to more than 100 Downing Street employees in May 2020 inviting them to the “bring your own booze” gathering in the garden of Number 10. He said they should “make the most of the lovely weather”, despite England being under tough Covid restrictions.
