Davey: Met Police mustn’t let Boris Johnson off the hook

Responding to the Metropolitan Police’s statement that they will not investigate any of the Downing Street parties until after the findings of Sue Gray’s inquiry, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey MP said: “The evidence that Boris Johnson broke the law is clear to everyone. Cressida Dick mustn’t let him off the hook through a shady establishment stitch-up.

“The police don’t need the Government’s permission to investigate a crime, and they mustn’t turn a blind eye to criminality just because it is committed by Boris Johnson.

“It is ludicrous to pretend that we can leave it to a civil servant appointed by Boris Johnson to get to the bottom of this.

“The Met Commissioner might think it’s one rule for Boris Johnson and another rule for everyone else, but that doesn’t make it right. Our city and our country deserve so much better.”
