More than a dozen Tory MPs call for Boris Johnson to quit over Partygate

Johnson in India: he’s not making a sign of greeting – he’s actually praying that something will happen to get him off the hook.

It’ll go higher – but for now we’re hearing that more than 12 Conservative MPs are now calling for Boris Johnson to quit as prime minister – before the weight of evidence against him forces him out.

On Friday (April 22, 2022), Robert Largan became the latest Tory MP to speak out against Johnson, telling constituents in a newsletter that he “will not defend the indefensible”.

He joins others including Nigel Mills, Caroline Nokes, Craig Whittaker, Anthony Mangnall, Tobias Ellwood, and Gary Streeter who have already called for Johnson to go.

Johnson himself ran away to India before MPs supported a motion for an investigation into whether he lied to Parliament “on the nod” – they didn’t even bother to vote on it.

He’s there to talk up a post-Brexit trade deal (it’s too much of a stretch to suggest he’s been “working” on it) that he says he wants done by Diwali in October.

Asked at a news conference whether he was “absolutely sure” that he would still be prime minister by then, he said: “Yes.”

But you can bet that’s another lie.
