Growing pressure for an inquiry into their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic has been rejected by the UK government. A spokesperson from No. 10 stated there was no point because they had been brilliant so far.
They added “We have been absolutely marvellous and also, because of the estimated £123bn billion spent by the end of October, there won’t be enough money left in the Treasury to buy that amount of whitewash”.
Sources close to the Prime Minister have revealed that if he is forced to set one up, the first port of call to head it will be Sir John Chilcot who led the inquiry into the 2003 Iraq War.
It’s alleged Chilcot would be the favourite because after starting the Iraq War inquiry in 2009, seven years later concluded Tony Blair, the Prime Minister a the time, had been a bit of a scamp and therefore should not be given a knighthood, nor a seat in the House of Lords.
