UK Mayor Fired After Saying Prime Minister Boris Johnson Deserved Covid-19 Sickness

A United Kingdom town mayor has lost her job at a solicitors fame after she made “deeply offensive remarks” about Prime Minister, Boris Johnson who is currently incapacitated with COVID-19.


Sheila Oakes, who is the current mayor of Heanor in Derbyshire made disparaging comments about the prime minister’s sickness on Facebook.

Speaking about Johnson’s sickness, she said he “completely deserves this”.

She has since apologised for her mean comments but the damage seems to have been done already.

Her employer, VHS Fletchers Solicitors confirmed that she was “no longer employed by their firm in any capacity”.

Ms Oakes worked as a paralegal at the firm’s Ilkeston office.

The company said they are now facing heavy backlash and are “embroiled in criticism” as a result of her comments.

The VHS Fletchers Solicitors took to their website and made a statement describing her remarks as “deeply offensive” and said her views were “not shared by the partners or any other members of staff”.

It added:

“To wish illness upon anyone must be abhorrent to all right-thinking members of the public.”

It also says Oakes accepted that she made a mistake and she apologized for upsetting people and saying it.

The Labor Party has said Ms Oakes’s contract calls for an investigation.

The British Prime Minister who tested positive for Coronavirus, had the nation holding their breaths after he was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital when his health condition started deteriorating.

He was said to put on oxygen as he was struggling to breathe by himself.

Mr Johnson has since been discharged from the intensive care unit and is back into an ordinary hospital ward where he continues to receive treatment.
