Boris Johnson covid announcement – Senior Tory calls for PM to QUIT as his PMQs party apology is branded ‘insulting’
BORIS Johnson faced a brutal grilling over Downing Street lockdown parties at Prime Minister’s Questions today.
Ahead of taking questions, Mr Johnson made a statement saying he wanted to apologise for wrongdoings at Number 10, but tried to claim he thought he thought he was at “a work event” when he attended the booze-fuelled party.
Douglas Ross, the Scottish Tory leader, has called for Boris Johnson to quit as PM.
He told broadcasters in a pooled interview that he believes Boris Johnson’s position is no longer ‘tenable’.
He said: “Regretfully I have to say that his position is no longer tenable.
“What we also heard from the prime minister today was an apology. And he said, with hindsight, we would have done things differently, which for me, is an acceptance from the prime minister that it was wrong, and therefore, I don’t want to be in this position, but I am in the position now where I don’t think he can continue as he leader of the Conservatives.“
