2 comments

Rishi Sunak has apologised for failing to wear a seatbelt while filming in Blackpool. The law breaking incident occurred whilst PM Sunak was making a video for his Instagram account in the back of a moving vehicle. The Tory government brought in the legislation which says that any driver or passenger not wearing a seatbelt is breaking the law and is liable to be fined up to £500.

Downing Street said the Prime Minister has apologised his ‘brief error of judgment’ when he removed his seatbelt to film the social media video message while a passenger in the back seat of a car. A spokesperson for No 10 said: ‘That was a brief error of judgment. The Prime Minister removed his seatbelt to film a short clip.’

The spokesperson added that the PM accepts that this was a mistake and apologises, and stressed, ‘The Prime Minister believes everyone should wear a seatbelt. It was an error of judgment; he removed it for a short period of time to film a clip, which you’ve seen, but he accepts that was a mistake.’

The video was posted to Sunak’s own Instagram account but no longer appears there.

In a more recent update, the Mail-On-Line report that Lancashire Police say they are ‘looking into the matter’.

Failed to wear a sear belt and failed to give Stannes a much needed financial boost for the town.

He didn’t fail to be a conceited, self-serving, dishonest, useless excuse for a prime minister though!
