People Outraged By Boris' Letter To Girl Who Cancelled Her Birthday Party

People Outraged By Boris' Letter To Girl Who Cancelled Her Birthday Party

The letter was read on Good Morning Britain today.

People are fuming after rediscovering a handwritten letter Boris Johnson had sent a little girl, who postponed her birthday party in March 2020.

The letter, was discussed on today's Good Morning Britain by Susanna Reid, who called it 'remarkable'.

You can watch the clip below:

In the clip, Susanna says: "How could he have taken that time to handwrite that letter to that little girl, saying thank you and telling the rest of us 'be more like this little girl'... at the same time being at his own birthday party."

In the letter, Boris says: "Dear Josephine, Happy Birthday! I am glad to hear you are staying at home, though I am sorry to hear about your party!

"We have all got to do our bit to protect the NHS and save lives, and that is exactly what you are doing, so well done! You are setting a great example.

"We are working around the clock to keep people safe, and if we work together, we can send coronavirus packing."

The letter was shared on Twitter (

In the tweet, Boris added: "Josephine sets a great example to us all by postponing her birthday party until we have sent coronavirus packing.

"Together we can beat this. In the meantime let's all wish her happy birthday (twice) whilst washing our hands."

The anger comes after fresh reports that Boris Johnson enjoyed an indoor 'birthday celebration' in June 2020.

It's reported that Downing Street staff gathered in the Cabinet Room with cake, and sang Happy Birthday to the prime minister despite indoor mixing being banned.

Following the claims, Number 10 has insisted that Boris was there for “less than 10 minutes” after staff “gathered briefly” after a meeting had finished.


And people are now fuming about the letter, with one tweeting: "Yet another party Work/Birthday/Leaving do and the list goes on."

While another said: "I lost my daughter on the 12th of May 2020, she was 39 her funeral was on the 8th of June, we were allowed 10 people, no wake to celebrate her life, none of her friends and most of our family were allowed to come. I will never forgive this government."

And a third added: "I was unable to travel from Scotland to England for my brother's funeral, as it was during lockdown. I missed saying goodbye to my big brother and BoJo can have all these parties. Unbelievable."
