BORIS Johnson has called the North Pole to ensure that Father Christmas can still visit the UK amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
The letter came after the eight-year-old boy called Monty wrote a heart-warming letter to the Prime Minister asking if Santa would still be able to visit this year.
The letter read: “Dear Mr Johnson, I am eight years old and I was wondering if you and the government had thought about Santa coming this Christmas?
If we leave hand sanitiser by the cookies can he come? Or will he wash his hands? I understand you are very busy but can you and the scientists please talk about this.”
Mr Johnson – who has several children and has just had a newborn with his partner Carrie replied in true Dad fashion and said that he “had received ‘lots of letters about this” and said he had “consulted with experts about the issue.”
“I have put in a call to the North Pole and I can tell you Father Christmas is ready and raring to go, as are Rudolph and all of the other reindeer,’ wrote the Prime Minister.”
“The Chief Medical Officer has asked me to tell you that, provided Father Christmas behaves in his usual responsible way and works quickly and safely, there are no risks to your health or his.”
“Using it yourself, and washing your hands regularly, is exactly the kind of thing that will get you and your friends on the nice list,” the PM wrote.
