Havering’s Labour leader accuses Romford MP of being reckless and irresponsible.

Keith Darvill, Havering’s Labour Leader has accused the Romford MP of being ‘reckless and irresponsible’. Today he writes in the Havering Daily.

MP Andrew Rosindell is now advocating publicly, on Channel 4 news and BBC London news, that the Prime Minister and government scientists’ guidelines and regulations for controlling the pandemic should be rejected.

No wonder Havering has the highest number of Covid cases in the whole of London.

He says he wants to protect the economy. This seems to me to be trading lives for business. No one wants want to see our high streets becoming a wasteland. No one wants to see jobs lost as businesses close.

Rosindell says he wants to protect the vulnerable. But what does he have in mind?

Many of the vulnerable have alreadyspent 9 months housebound and not seeing friends and family. His policy amounts to allowing a deadly virus to rage throughout Havering. The elderly and younger people with fragile health conditions will be locked up with no prospect of leading a normal life. In essence they will be imprisoned.

Rosindell has a privileged lifestyle thatshields him from the devastation that Covid has caused so many families. Unbelievably for an MP, he is inciting people to ignore the regulations thathave been put in place to protect us all.

As has now been widely viewed on Facebook, Rosindell was seen travelling on the tube blatantly breaking the law about wearing face masks. Even worse, he was very close to another man, having a lengthy conversation. His flagrant disregard of Boris Johnson, Havering’s council leader Damian Whiteand the law is staggering.

The sick, elderly and housebound seem to have no place in Rosindell’s scheme of things and do not count.

Does he not understand that the economy will only get back to normal when the virus is eradicated? In order to do that, infection control measures as directed by those with far more knowledge than he or I have are the only way to us all getting our lives back.

As Havering’s Labour Leader. I must say that reckless and irresponsible are the only words to describe this undermining of the national effort to rid us of this deadly virus.

    Reckless and irresponsible? No change there then! Spouts out the problems, but doesn’t follow up with the solutions.

    A belated well done to Andrew Rosindell for seeing through the lies and voting against further restrictions that make no medical sense and have made the cure far worse than the disease. Web search Lockdown Sceptics.

    The government’s over £400 billion (money tree) response is a disaster, but they have the comfort of the so-called peoples party and SNP wanting ever more and longer restrictions, de facto supporting the destruction of our economy and NHS, allegedly in response to a seasonal ‘flu’ virus with a mortality rate of less than 0.07%.

    I mean why would a party allegedly for working people (and SNP) and long opponents of austerity, want austerity on steroids in a futile attempt to ‘kill a virus’, rather than develop therapeutics and immunity to a virus, which is the tried and tested approach, unless they want the devastation to society, working and vulnerable people to serve another hidden political agenda?

    Clearly the Government, Labour and SNP put, yet again, establishment POLITICS BEFORE PEOPLE and create another opportunity for Nigel Farage to rock the boat by rebranding the Brexit Party the Reform (UK) Party opposed to the criminal lockdowns.

      An interesting analysis Mr Durrant, but I bet a Pound to a Penny that you are taking ‘precautions’ so you don’t become one of the 0.07%. Personally, I am not ready to become a statistic, I still have a few more people I want to p*** off first. This isn’t just a UK based problem, it is worldwide. You only have to look at other countries and what they are doing, in particular, LA in the USA. Yes, we need to get the economy running again, so does the rest of the world. If you’re not worried about being a statistic, stop your ‘precautions’, lead from the front, and tell us how you are going to protect the NHS and the vulnerable whilst getting the economy back on its feet. However, it’s a bit late for that now as we are very lucky to have a couple of vaccines that will start to do that for us.

    According to Office for National Statistics less than 1 in 60 deaths from all causes are Covid-related, but many people will suffer and die from the inhumane lockdown restrictions due to millions of cancelled operations and appointments and mental/heath problems due to confinement and unemployment, which will rocket once furlough ends and please bear in mind the NHS is there to protect us, not the other way round.

    So its important to look at the big picture and keep things in context and seek proportionate responses to health and economic matters.

      I couldn’t agree with you more, Mr Durrant, we have to get our economy back on its feet, but the statistics of catching the virus are far greater than being involved in a car crash, and the odds of survival are stacked greatly against the elderly and vulnerable; so we still have to take care and protect ourselves. I lost my job because of this pandemic, and don’t have any answers to resolve the situation, but I try to make decisions based on my own wellbeing, and keeping safe is one of them. Whilst it is great to be able to say what the problems are, and what can/could/may/will happen, it is equally important to say how we can go about solving the problem. Perhaps you could explain how, unfortunately, the only person I know with the virus, went in to the local hospital with a chest infection and a mild heart attack, ended up catching the virus there. So, if we open up the hospitals for all, how many will catch the virus, and how many will end up dead as a result? Please, just provide the solution to the problem for everyone you have mentioned.
