Blames the Tory Party
Announces he’s remaining as PM “until” (read ‘if’) a new leader appointed.
This isn’t over.
He will quite likely try and stuff the election process & regain the crown.
He will stuff Govt & Lords with cronies.
Trump mk II.
Everyone write to your MPs right now -- it needs to be seen that there is an immediate response everywhere to this. 🖊️
We will not stomach a PM who breaks his own laws and insults the public with lies about it.
No10 says the Queen has approved knighthood for ex education secretary Gavin Williamson.
At a time when we’re trying to tell the world we’re not corrupt?!
I can only assume this is because Sir Gavin was once given the book of buried bodies & this sordid gift keeps him quiet. 🤦🏻♂️
Having seen Zelensky, are we really going to keep Boris Johnson…
…and say “yah, let’s let him off, even if he does break his own laws, lie repeatedly, take Russian money, hand out corrupt contracts, and behave dishonourably in parliament”
Surely we need to do better.
Brexit has wrecked UK’s position in global security.
We used to sit at the crux of influence between US & EU, leading EU meetings.
Now Johnson takes Russian money he won’t return, lamely sanctions 3 oligarchs already sanctioned by US… while Rees-Mogg orders studies on ounces.
James Cleverly is horrendously dishonest here.
He says Russians giving money to Conservatives are those that fled Putin & didn’t want to see a Corbyn government.
Whereas in reality we all know that it’s the wife of a Kremlin official who’s given £1-2m.
There's 'nothing wrong' with £2 million worth of donations to the Conservative Party from Russian-linked figures and there's 'no reason to give the money back,' Foreign Office Minister James Cleverly insists.
The NHS is being privatised, but there won't be a big sell off as with the utilities.
More attractive to multinational businesses are government contracts to provide services. The risk stays with the government.

That Met Questionnaire:
1. What computing word also means religious imagery (4)
2. What hat did Tommy Cooper wear (3)
3. What was Pippin’s surname in LoTR (4)
4. What word is missing from “without _____ or reason” (5)
Now phone the Met, and read the answers one after another.
I still can’t quite get my head around this.
Which sharp tool in the MET came up with the idea of sending them all questionnaires to answer at home, in own time, with as much conferring on alibis, legalities & excuses as they need? Who else got such privilege?
@BorisJohnson Over the whole pandemic, UK has been the second slowest grower in the G7.
The UK economy only grew 'fast' in 2021 relative to other countries is because it was hit so much harder in 2020. Overall, still v bad.
You are untrustworthy with data.

Remember when the High Priests of Brexit derided expert analysis showing that Brexit would increase the cost of living…
…and instead told us that Brexit would dramatically drive down living costs across the board?
So it looks like Downing Street is trying to block the release of Sue Gray’s report, despite the Met not requesting that it’s delayed.
This has the stench of a major cover-up. twitter.com/Peston/status/…
If the Sue Gray report was due out in 2 days…
…why did the Met have to start their long investigation today, *ostensibly* delaying the Gray report indefinitely?
Why not wait just 2-3 days to allow that publication in the public interest?
It stinks to high heaven and beyond.
I have the misfortune of having Michael Fabricant as my local MP. I need a bigger Twitter voice to expose his lies and help prevent his re-election when the time comes. Any new follows and RT's would be hugely appreciated. Will FB. #followbackfriday#johnsonout#torylies#FBPE
Refugee drowned in Channel yesterday isn't visible. Here's an Afghan ex-refugee who also took 'irregular' route to UK as a child. I survived, rebuilt my life & now contribute to humanity like so many other refugees & immigrants. Let's show compassion, not force people to drown.
