In this afternoon’s vote I will be unable to give my support to the Prime Minister. The country has reason to be grateful to Boris Johnson for getting Brexit done after a period of uncertainty and for securing a successful vaccine programme in the face of the pandemic.
However, I waited for the Sue Gray report and was disappointed to read its contents. I have concluded that it is now time for a different kind of leadership and a new team. With a General Election only two years away now is the right time for a new leader to bring about the changes we need to restore the country’s confidence in the Government and ensure a Conservative victory in 2024.
