Tory MPs ‘having conversations’ on how to oust Boris Johnson

Boris Johnson is the “one thing” that rule-breaking advisers and ministers have in common, a Labour frontbencher has said. 

Wes Streeting, the shadow health secretary, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “Boris Johnson, through the lies he’s told again and again and again, has stretched the boundaries of credibility… I’m sure Boris Johnson is busy planning who he is going to throw under the bus next.

“We’ve had the resignation of Allegra Stratton, there are questions now about the Prime Minister’s communications director, but you know, whether it’s Allegra Stratton, Jack Doyle, Dominic Cummings, Gavin Williamson, Matt Hancock, these people who have flagrantly broken the rules and in full view of the public with no accountability, they have one thing in common and that’s the man who’s appointed them and his judgment.

“And I’m afraid it’s his untrustworthy nature, his disorganisation, his dishonesty, which is undermining trust in public health measures.”
