Richard Lochhead MSP has commented on the announcement that both the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak, are to be issued with fines by the Metropolitan Police over parties held in Downing Street during lockdown.
Commenting, Moray’s MSP said:
“Prime Minister Boris Johnson must immediately resign as well as the Chancellor Rishi Sunak as both have been fined for breaking the law and breaching the rules they imposed on the rest of the country.
“People across Moray and the UK made huge sacrifices and followed the rules in place to save lives and protect our NHS, all while Boris Johnston and his Tory Party were flouting the rules and holding parties.
“The Prime Minister has also repeatedly lied to Parliament.
“The Tory UK Government is rotten to the core and if there is any decency and respect for public office left then this should bring the whole administration down.”
