Time for Boris Johnson to go – Liberal Democrats


South Lanarkshire Liberal Democrats have joined increasing calls for Boris Johnson to resign following the publication of the damning Sue Gray report on the Partygate scandal.

Councillor Mark McGeever, Deputy Leader of the Council’s Liberal Democrat Group, said the public expected its political leaders to meet high standards of persona behaviour. Lying to Parliament had always been a resigning matter for a Prime Minister but this Prime Minister’s behaviour went well beyond that.

The Sue Gray report includes pictures of Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak together at a birthday party. The report came with a damning line to Boris Johnson’s Government saying, “the senior leadership at the centre, both political and official, must bear responsibility for this culture.

Responding to the Report, Mark McGeever said:

“This report lays out in black and white the culture of rule-breaking and lawbreaking presided over by the Prime Minister. He made the laws, broke them and then lied about it to the British public.

Many local residents made sacrifices during Covid and followed the rules laid down by Government, But Boris Johnson and his team clearly think it’s one rule for them and another for the rest of us.

The Sue Gray report is an insult to local people’s sacrifices during the pandemic. We have all seen the pictures. It’s clear they think they can take the British public for fools.

It is time the Prime Minister did the decent thing and resigned.”
