Criminal evidence on Vote Leave handed to CPS. Will Boris Johnson go to Number 10 – or jail?

How can Boris Johnson show his face on the election trail when he may face criminal charges as part of the Vote Leave campaign?

That is the big question. Some may deny it – but they’ll be the ones who say Labour is a disgrace for being investigated by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission over trumped-up allegations of anti-Semitism. Hypocrisy?

It is true that Mr Johnson will be among those implicated in the criminal evidence that has been sent to the Crown Prosecution Service by the Metropolitan Police after a 16-month investigation.

Vote Leave has denied any wrongdoing but the formal referral by the police means they are seeking advice on how to build the case against that organisation, and where they need further evidence to advance the prospect of charges being brought.

In practise, this means any actual prosecution is still a long way away.

But the timing could not be worse for Mr Johnson.

It links his – and chief adviser Dominic Cummings – to possible criminal charges at a time when he is trying to pretend he is trustworthy enough to lead the United Kingdom.

And of course, this is also a time when he has failed to achieve Brexit on the date he said he would.

Worse still, it comes after the Met dropped an investigation into rival Leave campaign Leave.EU, fronted by Arron Banks, due to a lack of evidence. The fact that an investigation against Mr Johnson’s team is still ongoing is even more damning in contrast with that.

Most damning of all is the fact that Mr Johnson is trying to fight a Brexit election based on a campaign won through potentially criminal activity. He is harming the integrity of the electoral system by continuing to stand as a candidate.

    Johnson is a bloody disgrace and should have resigned.

    As an optimist I look forward to hearing that the by then ex-MP for Uxbridge is moving to the kind of retirement accommodation that has bars on the windows – he certainly deserves it.

    Its not isolated to the Brexit debacle, Johnson is behind the Julian Assange debacle. See the See para 83 of this ICO decision which proves the truth about Julian Assange is being hidden from Joe Public by the ICO/CPS via the Dransfield Vexatious Court Precedent BS.

    If we stopped MP’s from serving based on their criminal records the place would be (at least) half empty. Consider that the system itself allows them to conceal this sort of thing… try pushing the FOI route and watch how fast you get stone walled

      It wouldn’t be half empty, though. It would be full of people who aren’t criminals.

    It ought to be criminal to bet on currency fluctuations and companies failing which is what his mates are doing and why they want a hard Brexit

      No, it’s factually accurate.
