Zac Goldsmith not fit to hold any government position – Jon Trickett

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Cabinet Minister, commenting on Boris Johnson appointing Zac Goldsmith to the Lords, said:

“It says everything you need to know about Boris Johnson’s respect for democracy that he has ignored the voters of Richmond Park and appointed Goldsmith to government.

“The public deserves better than a government-appointed by ‘jobs for mates’.

“At a time when the Conservatives are investigating racism in their party, they’ve appointed the person who ran an overtly racist campaign against Sadiq Khan. Zac Goldsmith is not fit to hold any government position.”
