If Boris Johnson can’t account for Sunday Times revelations there is precedent for resignation

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, commenting on revelations about Boris Johnson in the Sunday Times, said:

“Boris Johnson must now give a full account of his actions in response to these grave and most serious allegations of the misuse use of public money in his former role as mayor of London.

“The public has a right to know how and why these funds were used for the benefit of a close personal friend without on the face of it legitimate reason.

“This cannot be swept under the carpet. It is a matter of the integrity of the man now leading our country, who appears to believe he can get away with anything.”
