Boris Johnson should resign following Sue Gray report

Updated: Apr 17, 2023

East Dunbartonshire MP Amy Callaghan has renewed her calls for Boris Johnson to resign following the release of the long-awaited Sue Gray report into parties held in Westminster during the pandemic.

The report confirms that Boris Johnson and Downing Street staff partied and broke Covid guidelines whilst the rest of the country was in lockdown.

Ms Callaghan and the wider SNP group in Westminster have said that Boris Johnson must resign—adding to calls from across parliament for Boris to go.

The local MP has also challenged Scottish Conservative leader Douglas Ross to resubmit his letter of no confidence to the 1922 backbench committee or risk losing any remaining credibility. Commenting, SNP MP Amy Callaghan said: "The recent publication of the Sue Gray report has exposed the lies of this Government and confirms what myself and my colleagues have been saying for some time– that Boris Johnson is entirely unfit to hold the office of Prime Minister.

"This report should be the final straw. While the rest of the nation were abiding by the rules and making the necessary sacrifices to keep others safe, Boris Johnson was content to break his own laws by partying during lockdown.

"He must be held to account for repeatedly lying to the public. The time is well overdue for the Prime Minister to resign "The Scottish Conservatives have now run out of excuses for backing this law-breaking Prime Minister. Douglas Ross must now resubmit his letter of no confidence without delay if he is to retain any credibility in Scotland. "The actions of Boris Johnson are disgraceful; he has taken the public for fools. It should be clear that his time is up - I would urge Conservatives across the UK to do the decent thing and echo calls for his resignation."
