Two more Tory MPs call for Boris Johnson to quit after Sue Gray report

TWO more Tory MPs have called for Boris Johnson to quit in the wake of the damning Sue Gray report.

John Baron and David Simmonds have withdrawn their support for the Prime Minister after the report uncovered a swathe of boozy parties that took place in Downing Street during the Covid lockdown. 

Baron, an MP since 2001, said civil servant Gray’s findings as well as the Met Police investigation into parties “paint a shameful pattern of misbehaviour during the pandemic as the rest of us kept to the Covid regulations”.

Simmonds, MP for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, said it was “clear that while the government and our policies enjoy the confidence of the public, the Prime Minister does not”.

According to Sky News, there are now 18 backbench Tories calling for Johnson to go. 

Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross said on Wednesday Boris Johnson should resign but only after the war in Ukraine is over
