Sue Gray update: Bosworth's Conservative MP cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer

  • Hinckley Liberal Democrat Councillor calls on Luke Evans MP to sack Boris Johnson

  • Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey says "It's time Conservative MPs did their patriotic duty"

Responding to Sue Gray's update on parties being held in Downing Street during Covid lockdowns, Liberal Democrat Hinckley Councillor Michael Mullaney said:

"This is a damning moment for Boris Johnson

"The Conservative MP for our area cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer. We all know whilst people in Hinckley and Bosworth made terrible sacrifices during lockdowns, Boris Johnson and his team were partying in Downing Street.

"We all have painful memories of that lockdown, from not being able to see dying relatives, to being separated for months on end from our friends and family.

"It is time for Luke Evans to sack Boris Johnson. No more ifs or buts.

"It is an insult to everyone in our area to see the local Conservative MP refusing to sack a Conservative Prime Minister who broke the law and lied about it."

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP said:

"Everyone knows Boris Johnson broke the rules and lied to the country.

"It's time Conservative MPs did their patriotic duty, listened to their constituents and stood up for decency by sacking Boris Johnson. He must go before he does our country any more harm."
