Sunak should kick Johnson out of the Conservative Party now

The Liberal Democrats have called on Rishi Sunak to kick Boris Johnson out of the Conservative Party. Liberal Democrat Deputy Leader Daisy Cooper MP said:

It was clear from day one that Boris Johnson was never fit to be an MP let alone Prime Minister.

Sunak’s credibility and integrity is in the gutter. If he wants to show he has any backbone left he must finally do the right thing and kick the disgraced Boris Johnson out of the Conservative Party in order to prevent him from ever standing again.

  • Fed up with hearing about Boris Johnson. It’s a sideshow. Couldn’t we focus on how we are going to generate enough revenue to fund important things lile the NHS.? Given that Brexit means that we are driving fast up a cul de sac.

  • I’m reluctant to disagree with the admirable Daisy Cooper, but this matter has got nothing to do with the Lib Dems….. it’s an internal Tory problem. Alex B. has a point – and sometimes I think politics can seem a bit tedious.

    I’m old enough to remember the wisdom of Harold Wilson’s attitude during the Profumo scandal. It was “NO COMMENT” in block capitals. Old Uncle Harold knew a thing or two about the public mood and the winning of elections.

    “Fed up with hearing about Boris Johnson.”

    Aren’t we all?

    “kick the disgraced Boris Johnson out of the Conservative Party in order to prevent him from ever standing again.”

    Let’s leave BJ out of it for a moment. There’s a more important principle involved here.

    Are Lib Dems saying that the leaders of political parties should be able to expel anyone they like without due process and with no right of appeal? We have that in the Labour Party. There is no dissent allowed. It’s tearing the party apart.
