Tories ‘governing like the mafia’ with calls for Standards Commissioner to resign

Reacting to suggestions from Business Secretary Kwasi Kwarteng on Sky this morning that the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner should resign, Liberal Democrat Chief Whip Wendy Chamberlain MP said: “The Conservatives are governing like the mafia.

“They are targeting those who uphold the rules rather than those who break them.

“These shameful attempts to drag the Standards Commissioner through the mud have to be called out for what they truly are – an attack on our democracy.”
