CHESTER — A man who detests his in-laws is insisting they come over for a really special family Christmas.
“But what right has the government got to say I can’t invite them to my house just because of some pretend illness that either doesn’t really exist or is pretty much like flu? It’s as if we’re living in a Marxist state gone mad.”
Welling up with emotion, the 38-year-old father-of-five from Chester said he felt Christmas was a magical time of the year.
“And what better way to celebrate that fact than being in the company of your most cherished family members? Even if it does usually end up with the neighbours phoning the police.”
However, Mr Johnson’s wife, Suzanne, said she felt whatever the situation regarding coronavirus on December 25, it was unlikely her parents would be joining them.
“I think they suspect Jack’s just trying to use them and make some stupid point about coronavirus infringing his human rights,” she explained.
“In the past, if I’ve ever suggested mum and dad come round for a meal, he sulks for days on end like a spoilt little boy.”
