Davey: PM acting like a mafia boss

Responding to claims made by Conservative MP William Wragg that government ministers, whips and advisers have attempted to blackmail and bully colleagues who oppose Boris Johnson, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey said: “It is simply remarkable that a Prime Minister could countenance scrapping local projects and funding if MPs refuse to back him.

“All Boris Johnson cares about is saving his own skin. He’s acting more like a mafia boss than a Prime Minister.

“These latest allegations of criminal behaviour are yet more proof that a civil servant investigation into Partygate is utterly inadequate. The Metropolitan Police must investigate.

“Number 10 is now in full scorched earth mode. Every minute the Tories allow him to stay in power damages our country.”
