Sue Gray update: Time for Eleanor Laing to sack her leader
- Local Liberal Democrats calls on Epping Forest MP to sack Boris Johnson
- Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey says "It's time Conservative MPs did their patriotic duty"
Responding to Sue Gray's update on parties being held in Downing Street during Covid lockdowns, Liberal Democrat district councillor Jon Whitehouse said:
"This is a damning moment for Boris Johnson. Whilst people in Epping Forest made terrible sacrifices during lockdowns, Boris Johnson and his team were partying in Downing Street.
"We all have painful memories of that lockdown, from not being able to see dying relatives, to being separated for months on end from friends and family.
"It is time for Eleanor Laing and her fellow Conservative MPs to sack Boris Johnson. No more ifs or buts."
Leader of the Liberal Democrats Ed Davey MP said:
"Everyone knows Boris Johnson broke the rules and lied to the country.
"It's time Conservative MPs did their patriotic duty, listened to their constituents and stood up for decency by sacking Boris Johnson. He must go before he does our country any more harm."
