I may not be popular for saying this but I think No

Yes he has made a mistake a big one too

But does that cancel out all of the good that he has done and all the hard work he has also done to get us out of this pandemic

Over to you..

GagaJo Wed 12-Jan-22 20:55:13

What good has he done?

MissAdventure Wed 12-Jan-22 20:56:13

Yes he should.
He's a liar.

Grannybags Wed 12-Jan-22 20:57:27

I think he should. But who would replace him?

janeainsworth Wed 12-Jan-22 20:59:14

Yes.

Msida Wed 12-Jan-22 21:02:48

You ask what good has he done.. He has had to run the country in the middle of a pandemic, if you think that is an easy job you are mistaken

Ro60 Wed 12-Jan-22 21:04:59

All the good? OK, vaccines - as he's quite keen to remind everyone.
No 2? ....

Kali2 Wed 12-Jan-22 21:05:57

Yes, no question.

But he hasn't "run the country", has he? He's occupied Number 10 and Chequers, gone on holiday a lot and taken time to work on his book.

I think maybe he should but I don't think he will.

I also think if he'd come clean right from the start, we might not even be discussing this now. He's not handled the fall out very well.

And with the highly influential ERG group of backbenchers pulling the strings, apparently, I think it makes little difference whether he stays or goes to the electorate.

Kali2 Wed 12-Jan-22 21:12:14

Several ERG are on the front bench.

MaizieD Wed 12-Jan-22 21:13:25

Of course he should resign. It's part of the Ministerial Code; a minister who misleads (i.e lies to) parliament should resign. He's spent two years lying to Parliament, not to mention lying to the country.

But Dickens is right

Seriously thread number four on the same topic ??

Biscuitmuncher Wed 12-Jan-22 21:58:17

You honestly think he's ran the country? He's a lazy lying scumbag

FlexibleFriend Wed 12-Jan-22 22:01:05

No!

mumofmadboys Wed 12-Jan-22 22:07:37

Yes , should resign.
How can he lead the country when he can't even recognise a party when he sees one?

Ravelling Thu 13-Jan-22 06:57:22

Yes, and he’s not the only one who should.

glammanana Thu 13-Jan-22 08:24:49

Of course he should resign he can't be praised for the runout of the injection programme the scientists are to be praised for that, he should resign and lets find someone with some sort of moral compass,but that will be difficult as I'm sure some of the contenders for leadership would have been at the so called "work meeting" also.

DiscoDancer1975 Thu 13-Jan-22 08:48:40

I don’t think he should resign. There’s absolutely no one to replace him. The House of Commons last night was like being in the theatre watching a very bad production! At one point I thought Keir Starmer was going to break into song!

We’ll never know if someone else would have handled it better, but I’m inclined to think not. Politicians are all cut from the same cloth.

Alegrias1 Thu 13-Jan-22 09:04:41

I really don't understand this attitude. There's nobody to replace him? You mean in all of Parliament there's nobody who would be an improvement on a lying, lazy, entitled layabout with no morals?

What does he have to do that might make you say yes, OK, somebody else might be better? Tell lies to the Queen? Tell his staff to let the bodies pile high in their thousands? Say ***k business?

Oh, wait...

PM pulls out of visit after family member tests positive for Covid
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has pulled out of a planned visit to Lancashire "due to a family member testing positive for coronavirus", Downing Street says.

Is he hiding yet again?

Hetty58 Thu 13-Jan-22 09:20:56

ayse, all very convenient - I was just waiting for the 'Covid isolation' excuse. Of course he should go. Now I wait for the leadership challenge.

Hetty58 Thu 13-Jan-22 09:21:50

Family member - could be second cousin, once removed?

rosie1959 Thu 13-Jan-22 09:26:56

If a family member tests positive and you are fully vaccinated you do not have to isolate
But it is obviously prudent to cut down on contact with others.
So I suppose he can’t win on that one
