MORE UK CONSERVATIVES PULL SUPPORT FROM PM JOHNSON OVER ‘PARTYGATE’

Three lawmakers from Britain’s governing Conservatives pulled their support for Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday over a damning report that detailed a series of alcohol-fuelled parties at 10 Downing Street that broke COVID-19 lockdown rules.

A day after the report was published, describing a boozy culture at his Downing Street office during lockdowns, Conservative lawmakers John Baron, David Simmonds and Stephen Hammond said they could no longer support the prime minister.

Their voices add to a growing list of Conservative lawmakers who have called for Johnson to resign over what has been dubbed “partygate”, despite the prime minister’s repeated apologies, although there are still not enough to prompt a confidence vote.

Baron, first elected in 2001, said he was withdrawing his support because he believed Johnson had “knowingly” misled parliament a charge the prime minister denies but which is being investigated by a parliamentary committee.

“Given the scale of rule-breaking in No. 10, I cannot accept that the prime minister was unaware. Therefore his repeated assurances in parliament that there was no rule-breaking is simply not credible,” he said in a statement.

“Having always said I would consider all the available evidence before deciding, I’m afraid the prime minister no longer enjoys my support I can no longer give him the benefit of the doubt.”

More than 15 Conservative lawmakers have publicly called for Johnson to quit since the reports of lockdown-breaking parties began to steadily drip into the media. But Johnson has refused, saying he still has work to do in government.
