I don’t understand why the Sue Gray report didn’t include all the parties. The reason given is that the police didn’t investigate so there was no need.
I thought the whole point in the beginning was that Sue Gray was asked to do a report because the police didn’t think it was worth any investigation.

He really needs to go. Our MPs are letting us down by standing by Boris. What is this telling our children. Its fine to lie?

The tory MP’s want to keep their jobs , they don’t give a damn
about decency and honour

He says that he takes responsibility but these are sorry- not sorry hollow apologies and everyone knows it. It’s like a toddler being told to say sorry but then runs off saying he didn’t do anything wrong. Anyone who thinks he is sincere needs to give their heads a wobble. I only hope the Tories get a kicking at the next by- elections.

I wonder if Sue Gray lost the will to live. They acted like a bunch of children

Just how much has this report cost? How much for the police investigation? Now the government can only think of chucking a few quid at the electorate to divert attention. Of course people are in dire need of assistance, but planned, targeted and effective help. I would bet that this is going to be a scattering of £ across the board.

He’s made it clear that he’s going nowhere and his party seem helpless to remove him from office. It’s appalling to look at the list of things that went on under his watch and realise that it doesn’t bother some people. And when he says he’s changed things at no 10 he only changed things back to how they were before he took over!
