The Government has told bereaved families it’s too occupied dealing with the coronavirus pandemic to start an immediate public inquiry into its handling of the crisis.
In a letter to lawyers representing families who’ve lost loved ones during the pandemic, the Government appeared to rule out starting an official inquiry for months.
It said an inquiry now was not appropriate because the very people who would need to give testimony to an inquiry were working round the clock.
It said that it’s not expected that the Government’s workload will ease in the coming months.
The comments came amid growing calls for an immediate statutory inquiry into the Government’s handling of the crisis, and Boris Johnson has previously committed to holding an inquiry but he is yet to set out a timetable for doing so.
The letter, seen by a news outlet, was sent to lawyers representing the COVID 19 Bereaved Families for Justice group.
The letter sent on April 1, relates to possible legal action to force an inquiry to begin.
Jo Goodman, a co-founder of the group, said the Government’s position was an insult to the bereaved and prevents the government from protecting future lives to the best of their ability.
It comes just days after the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, piled the pressure on Boris Johnson to start an inquiry as he said the time for an independent inquiry must be coming close.
Justin Welby said during a visit to the National COVID Memorial Wall in central London that an inquiry should centre on lessons to be learned and must be quite independent and extremely wide-ranging.
A Government spokesperson told a news outlet that an inquiry would be held at the proper time, but officials are currently rightly focused on protecting public health and saving lives.
Boris Johnson said in March this year that the Government will begin a public inquiry into the crisis as soon as it’s right to do so.
He said the inquiry will take place as soon as it wouldn’t be an irresponsible diversion of the energies of the key officials involved.
But what’s the point of a costly inquiry into the coronavirus because nothing ever happens with the data anyhow, but perhaps someone should tell the Prime Minister that it’s no longer classed as a pandemic in the United Kingdom, which was a statement made by a department of his own government, but of course, Boris Johnson will need several months to plan how he can rig the outcome of the inquiry.
And it seems that Boris Johnson’s closet has more skeletons in there than the killing fields of Cambodia.
The pandemic is over and people want an inquiry – an independent one, not a Government one!
Perhaps Boris Johnson and Carrie Symonds are too busy picking wallpaper to worry about an inquiry? And it doesn’t take the entire government to set up a public inquiry.
The truth of the matter is our government is covering for the sociopaths of the World Economic Forum and their various offspring, and Boris Johnson is just following orders and is complicit in selling out the country to world elitists.
And there probably won’t be any inquiry until after the next General Election as Boris wouldn’t want his shortcomings to come to light, and of course, they need a bit of time to get all their butt-covering stories straight.
Politics is just a game of fear, and it’s their job to make people feel that fear, and how can he deny an inquiry, is he completely mad because you can’t deny an inquiry into your own behaviour and actions – it’s up to others to make those inquires into his actions and behaviours, otherwise he’s just saying he can behave however he wants, with no one to challenge it.
And when he’s confronted with questions, he doesn’t acknowledge them, he just seeks deflection and is back onto how important dealing with the COVID crisis is, and how he’s doing important work to battle it.
He just wants to delay the nasty questions in the belief that after some time people will forget about it, and then he can keep the focus well away from his blunders. He did the same with the Priti Patel bullying – delay, delay and then complete whitewash – matter closed and the guilty party gets off.
