John Major comments a “damning indictment” of Johnson’s corrupt Conservative government

Responding to Sir John Major’s comments on the Today Programme this morning that Boris Johnson’s government is “un-conservative” and “potentially politically corrupt”, Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper MP said: “For a former Conservative Prime Minister to describe this government as being politically corrupt is frankly astonishing and a damning indictment of the Tories under Boris Johnson.

“John Major is simply saying what millions of lifelong Tory voters are thinking: Boris Johnson’s Conservatives no longer represent them.

“This week’s scandal is just the latest in a long string of attempts to undermine our democratic traditions and shared values of decency, honesty and transparency.

“Right across former Conservative heartlands in the Blue Wall, people are sick of being taken for granted by a government mired in sleaze and corruption.”
