One rule for powerful people in Government and another for the rest of us – Nick Thomas-Symonds
Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the Government’s decision not to review fixed penalty notices issued to those who travelled in order to get childcare, said:
“The attempts from the Prime Minister to defend the indefensible actions of his most senior adviser are quickly descending into chaos and seriously undermining trust.
“It’s now been made incredibly difficult to police vital public health guidance, as this flip-flop over fines shows. The reality is it’s one rule for the most powerful people in Government and another for the rest of us, which is incredibly dangerous.”
