Sutton’s Tory MPs must call on PM’s adviser to go - Sign the open letter!

As Sutton residents, we’ve all made huge sacrifices in the current pandemic- meanwhile, Boris Johnson lets his closest adviser Dominic Cummings get away with breaking the lockdown rules. Over 20 Tory MPs have done the right thing in calling for Cummings to resign, but as of writing Sutton’s two Tory MPs have so far failed to add their names.

Sutton’s Lib Dem councillors have sent them both the below open letter. Residents can co-sign the letter, so please do add your name at the bottom!

Update - Following statements by both MPs, it seems Mr. Colburn has bowed to pressure and called for Cummings to go, however Mr. Scully has refused to do so. We are now renewing our calls for him to join the ever-growing list of Conservative MPs - including now that of his neighbour - to call for Cummings' resignation.


Dear Paul Scully & Elliot Colburn,

Residents across Sutton have made incredible sacrifices to slow coronavirus spreading. We hope you will empathise with how angry people are about reports that the Prime Minister’s Senior Adviser, Dominic Cummings, has willfully disregarded the lockdown rules that many Sutton residents have obeyed.

It cannot be one rule for those in government, and one rule for everyone else.

Given the national crisis, every minute Boris Johnson allows this scandal to drag on is another minute the Conservatives are unable to give people clear, honest answers about why testing capacity is so low, why there is a lack of protective equipment for frontline workers, and why so many people are dying in care homes.

We therefore urge you to put the interests of Sutton residents first, end the distractions and join the growing number of Conservative MPs who are calling for Dominic Cummings to go.

We look forward to your response.

Yours sincerely,

Suttons Liberal Democrat Councillors*
