Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for Aylesbury Steven Lambert has called on Rob Butler to condemn Boris Johnson after the revelations of the past few days.

Steven said, "After seeing the email which shows 100 people being invited to a party at Downing Street during lockdown, I call on Aylesbury's MP asking him to condemn Boris Johnson's behaviour and apologise on behalf of their party to the people of this town.

I wrote to Mr Butler last year after Dominic Cummings 'trip' to Durham expressing my and that of our resident's anger and frustration at what appears to be 'one rule for them and one rule for us'. Now it is clear that it wasn't just Cummings breaking the spirit of the law but also the PM and staff

Boris Johnson's Conservative party is taking this country for fools. People in this area will see right through his poor excuses and evasive answers. Rob Butler cannot continue to remain silent and ignore media scrutiny as he has done so far. He needs to take accountability for this Government's actions.

People in Aylesbury spent their Christmas away from loved ones and many lost friends and family to this disease. At a time of great sacrifice when the pandemic was at its worst, it is disgraceful to think that people in Downing Street were laughing about holding a Christmas party.

Enough is enough. This Government must be held accountable to an inquiry into all their rule breaking; from Barnard Castle to the Refurbishment of the Number 10 flat to this latest rule breaking. It cannot be one rule for them and another for the rest of us."
