Gibraltar All-Party Group Chairman calls for Boris Johnson to resign as PM

Published by GBC News

Gibraltar All Party Chairman in the House of Commons, Sir Bob Neill, has become the latest MP to call for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign over the partygate scandals.

He has written a letter of no confidence to Conservative Party 1922 Committee Chairman, Sir Graham Brady.

Sir Bob says Sue Gray’s report has highlighted a pattern of wholly unacceptable behaviour, spread over a number of months, by some working in 10 Downing Street.

This includes the breaking of rules that caused real pain and hardship for many, and which the Government was telling others to live by.

He says he has listened carefully to the explanations the Prime Minister has given, in Parliament and elsewhere, and, regrettably, does not find his assertions to be credible.

Sir Bob says trust is the most important commodity in politics, but these events have undermined trust in not just the office of the Prime Minister, but in the political process itself. He says to rebuild that trust and move on, a change in leadership is required.
