In Westminster, it was another turbulent week for the Government, as the much-anticipated report into Downing Street parties was published by Sue Gray. While it was only an update, and not the full report, it was still incredibly damaging for Boris Johnson and the Conservatives.
It found there were “failures of leadership and judgement” at the heart of Government. It also confirmed that 12 gatherings are currently subject to investigation by the Metropolitan Police, which means that there is evidence of serious and flagrant breaches of lockdown rules.
It cannot be one rule for them and one rule for everyone else, and I will continue to call for Boris Johnson to resign, as well as for the full Sue Gray report, including findings from the Metropolitan Police, to be made public as soon as possible.
