Sue Gray update: Elliot Colburn Conservative MP cannot hide behind lame excuses any longer

  • Liberal Democrat Spokesperson for Carshalton & Wallington Bobby Dean calls on Elliot Colburn 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 candidate for Carshalton and Wallington Bobby Dean said:

“This is a damning moment for Boris Johnson.

“Our Conservative MP can't hide away any longer. We all know whilst people in Carshalton and Wallington 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 our friends and family.  

“It is time for Elliot Colburn to sack Boris Johnson. No more sitting on the fence. 

“It is an insult to everyone in our area to see the local Conservative MP refusing to sack a Conservative Prime Minister who broke the law and lied about it. At the next election, Carshalton and Wallington will be a close two horse race between an out of touch Conservative party and a hard working local Liberal Democrat team."

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.”
