Conservative MPs soft on the law-breaker in Number Ten

After confirmation that there will be an inquiry into whether the Prime Minister misled Parliament over lockdown parties, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper MP said: “Boris Johnson’s lies and law-breaking are groundbreaking. He’s not only the first Prime Minister to have been given a criminal penalty by the police while in office, but also the first to be referred for a parliamentary inquiry for lying.

“By keeping the Prime Minister in his job, Conservative MPs have made themselves complicit in his law-breaking and his lies. There is no need to let this drag on for more weeks – they should sack Johnson now.

“Conservative MPs love to claim others are soft on crime, but the truth is they’re being soft on the law-breaker right in front of them in Number Ten.”

With reports that the Met Police have issued more fines over the party held in the Downing Street garden on 20 May, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey added: “Boris Johnson must immediately declare if he has been given another fine. No more cover-ups, no more lies.

“The scale of the criminality at Number 10 under Johnson’s Conservatives is truly breathtaking.”
