Johnson’s call for P&O boss to quit after illegally sacking workers could backfire on him

It makes perfect sense. If P&O has sacked 800 workers because UK employment law made them the easiest to ditch, why shouldn’t their British boss go with them?

The prime minister has backed calls for the boss of P&O Ferries to resign over the no-notice sackings of 800 staff.

Boris Johnson supported Transport Secretary Grant Shapps in urging Peter Hebblethwaite to step down after his “brazen” law breaking, No 10 said.

He admitted to MPs that he broke the law by not consulting workers but said he would do the same again if he had to.

Mr Hebblethwaite prompted further anger when he told the transport committee P&O “did choose not to consult” on the move and “did not believe there was any other way to do this”.

Of course, Boris Johnson has painted himself into a corner now.

By saying a boss should resign for breaking the law, he’ll be a hypocrite if he refuses to do the same, should police fine him for breaking lockdown rules and attending any of the now-infamous Downing Street parties.

    Fatboy Johnson should impound a couple of PO Ferries which could be sold off and paid as compensation for the 800 sacked workers. I bet the government are involved in this PO scam as they were with the POST Office Fraud
