Boris Johnson must take full responsibility for law breaking in Downing Street, say Greens

25 May 2022

Responding to publication of the damning Sue Gray report, which highlights “failures of leadership and judgement in No 10 and the Cabinet Office” [1], Green Party co-leader Carla Denyer said:

“This report has to be the final curtain for Boris Johnson’s squalid attempt to play the role of Prime Minister. 

“Never before have we seen such a complete disregard for what it means to hold this office, with a litany of rule-breaking, lies and cover-ups leaving the public with no trust in this government, at a time when it is needed the most.

“We are in the middle of a cost of living crisis which is getting worse and is having serious consequences for households and families up and down the country. Yet at a time when the government  should be doing everything it can to help, it is in complete disarray with Boris Johnson doing everything he can to avoid taking responsibility.

“This has to stop now. We don’t need any more reports or investigations to tell us all what we already know. Boris Johnson must take full responsibility for the rule-breaking he took part in and presided over. He must resign now.”
