Tom Morrison has written to Mary Robinson asking her to join colleagues in calling for Dominic Cummings to go. Residents across Cheadle have suffered greatly and the Prime Minister’s support for Mr Cummings is a slap in our community’s face.
Below is his letter to her:
I hope this email finds you and your family well.
The last few weeks have been the worst I have ever seen.
My inbox has been swamped by scared residents and business owners about the future. They are worried about loved ones, some of whom have sadly passed away.
I’ve been contacted by doctors, nurses, care workers and teachers, all worried that they haven’t been given the protection or support need to do their job safely.
I’m sure you will have had the same emails.
Despite this, people across Cheadle have done their bit. They stayed at home, set up help groups to support the vulnerable and isolated, they’ve become NHS volunteers or donated to food banks. Cheadle is at its best when organising as a community and we have seen this time and time again, I’m proud to be part of this community.
The news about Dominic Cummings travelling to Durham whilst infected with COVID-19 and his sequential support from the Prime Minister is just a slap in the face for our constituents though.
People are justifiably angry. One resident contacted me and stated that they were unable to visit their father who had died in care home, alone and confused. The guilt and sorrow will be them forever, but they did what they thought was right because the Government had told them to. They now wish they had ignored the advice.The Prime Minister’s support for Mr Cummings has made it clear - it is one rule for him and one rule for the rest of us.
I agree with the Daily Mail, Daily Mirror and a growing number of Conservative MPs who are now saying that Dominic Cummings must go.
I am writing to you to ask you to join with them. Join those MPs and take a stand against the Prime Minister’s decision to support for Mr Cummings and please put Cheadle’s residents first in this matter.
Cllr Tom Morrison
Parliamentary Spokesperson, Cheadle
