Sue Gray update: South Gloucestershire Conservative MPs cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer


Boris Johnson Graffiti

  • Leader of the Liberal Democrat opposition Group on South Gloucestershire Council, Claire Young, calls on the three local Conservative MPs - Luke Hall, Jack Lopresti and Chris Skidmore -  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, Cllr Young said:

“This is a damning moment for Boris Johnson

“The Conservative MPs for our area cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer. We all know whilst people in South Gloucestershire 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 Hall, Jack Lopresti and Chris Skidmore to sack Boris Johnson. No more ifs or buts. 

“It is an insult to everyone in our area to see the local Conservative MPs 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.”
