Former PM visits Stourbridge

Former Prime Minister Boris Johnson came to Stourbridge on Friday to meet with local business leaders, party members and the family of Ryan Passey.

The event held at Stourbridge FC was on the first anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine.

Mr Johnson spoke to around 75 people and then met people individually and posed for photos.

Local residents and Boris fans, Karen Tomalin and Dave Yardley, who are getting married on 3rd March, were presented with a ‘Got Marriage Done’ plaque by the former PM.

 He also spoke in depth with the Passey family whose son Ryan was stabbed to death in a Stourbridge nightclub in 2017, as his family continue to seek justice. Suzanne said:

“It was great to have Boris with us for a few hours and I was honoured he accepted my invitation on the first anniversary of the Ukraine invasion when he has been so instrumental in the west’s continued support for the country as it fights Russian aggression.

“I was very much touched by his compassion for the Passey family and their campaign for justice. Boris was very supportive in that we keep taking whatever steps we need to do to seek justice.”

 Mr Johnson added: “A tremendous honour to be with Suzanne in wonderful Stourbridge – a town fizzing with ambition and full of ideas to level up. 

“I thank Stourbridge FC for hosting me and for everyone who took the time to come and see me. I will be back soon.”
