Lib Dems call for Mid-Worcestershire MP Nigel Huddleston to resign from government and end his support for Boris Johnson



Mid-Worcestershire Liberal Democrats are calling on MP Nigel Huddleston to end his support for Boris Johnson after his vote of confidence for the Prime Minister yesterday. He joined three other Worcestershire MP's who have declared they support Boris Johnson, including MP for Worcester Robin Walker, Health Minister Sajid Javid (Bromsgrove), and Rachel Maclean (Redditch), all of whom have ministerial positions. 

The Liberal Democrats have been calling for Boris Johnson to resign since revelations about parties in 10 Downing Street started to emerge. With 124 fines now issued, 10 Downing Street is the most fined address in the country. Today, the Liberal Democrats are tabling a motion of no confidence in Boris Johnson in parliament.

 

Former Lib Dem parliamentary candidate Margaret Rowley, says: “This is all getting ridiculous. Boris Johnson is the first Prime Minister proven to be a law breaker. He is under investigation in parliament to determine whether he lied to MPs and he has even admitted he would do it all over again in the same circumstances! This is not a man who is fit to govern and it is only fair that MPs who represent us speak out and explain their actions.

“It is shocking that 211 MPs chose to keep Boris Johnson in power yesterday. They represent us in parliament and are more focused on keeping their own jobs as ministers rather than the views of their residents. While Boris Johnson may be looking to draw a line under the matter, this is not the case and we will continue to hold this failing government to account.”
