Local politicians call for Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign over lockdown parties

Boris Johnson must take responsibility for a party at Downing Street during strict lockdown measures in May 2020 and resign, according to West Dunbartonshire’s MP.

Last week the PM was forced to apologise to parliament after details of a party that 100 Number 10 staff were invited to were revealed. Details of further lockdown breaching parties at Downing Street, involving Mr Johnson’s wife, Carrie, were also uncovered over the weekend.

Even Gartocharn’s Conservative councillor, Sally Page, has said that she agrees with Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross that Johnson’s time is up.

The PM admitted he had been at the “bring your own booze” bash in the garden of Downing Street on May 20, 2020, when such gatherings were banned under Covid rules.

And furious West Dunbartonshire MP Martin Docherty-Hughes said Johnson must resign, as he highlighted the heartbreaking death toll in the area to parliament.

Speaking in the House of Commons, the SNP member said: “As of last week, across Clydebank, Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven, 300 men and women - my constituents - have died of Covid-19.

“Most were intubated, the vast majority were alone, and many were without access to the burial traditions of our ancestors.

“I ask the Paymaster General whether they agree that if a Tory party in Downing Street took place during a global public health emergency, and if the Prime Minister participated and/or sanctioned it in any shape or form, and if senior members of the British civil service in Whitehall did the same, or were even invited and did nothing to advise against it, that is a fatal blow not only to the Prime Minister’s premiership but to the independence and impartiality of the civil service in Whitehall?”

'Sorry to get emotional' Naga Munchetty fights back tears over heartbreaking on-air moment
BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Naga Munchetty accepted calls today from listeners who wanted to share their views on Boris Johnson and the ongoing investigation into a party that took place at Number 10 Downing Street.The caller in question told Naga that she had broken the rules during lockdown to see her father, who was isolating alone while his health declined, and shared her “controversial” opinion on Mr. Johnson in light of this fact. Naga, 46, kept calm as her caller, Cath, became choked up as she talked about her father, who died from COVID-19 at the end of 2020. Speaking about her father was clearly difficult for Cath, and at one point another listener texted in to tell her that she had “such grace”, whilst claiming that Boris was clearly lacking in that department. All the while, Naga continued to interview Cath in a considered and measured manner, until the end of the interview, where she couldn’t help but get choked up. Naga became emotional when she asked Cath for her father’s name. She asked: “You have amazing grace, Cath, do you want to tell me your father’s name? Shall we remember him?”Cath confirmed that her father’s name was Roger, causing Naga to take a brief pause. Her voice breaking, Naga continued: “Cath, I’m sorry… I know… Sorry I didn’t mean to get emotional. “I’m so sorry for the pain, and thank you.
