LIBERAL DEMOCRATS in Hinckley and Bosworth have called on Bosworth’s Tory MP, Luke Evans, to sack Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak, after the recent revelation that they have both been fined over ‘lockdown breaking’ parties which were held at Number 10, Downing Street.
Local Lib Dems are calling on Parliament to be recalled ‘immediately’, so that Members of Parliament can hold a vote of “no confidence” in Prime Minister, Boris Johnson as Prime Minister, following the revelation that he and Rishi Sunak have been fined over lockdown breaking parties at Number 10.
Coun. Michael Mullaney, Parliamentary Spokesman for Hinckley and Bosworth, said: “The Conservative MP for our area cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer. It is time for Bosworth’s MP to sack Boris Johnson. No more ‘ifs’ or ‘buts’.
He continued: “Whilst people in Hinckley and Bosworth made heartbreaking 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.
He concluded: “How on earth can Conservative MPs keep supporting a law-breaking Prime Minister and Chancellor? Our country needs leadership right now, not a Government in chaos.”
Lib Dem Leader, Ed Davey, said: “The country cannot have criminals and liars leading our Government, especially at a time of national and international crisis.
“Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak took the country’s sacrifices for granted, while they broke the law to party in Downing Street. They are not fit to hold office. If they had a shred of decency, they would resign.”
He concluded: “Parliament should be recalled immediately so that MPs can hold a vote of no confidence. Conservative MPs must do their patriotic duty and kick these criminals out of Government once and for all.”
