Met Police told they mustn’t let Boris Johnson ‘off the hook through a shady establishment stitch-up’

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey has said it is “clear to everyone” that the Prime Minister has broke the law ans he is calling on the Metropolitan Police to investigate the claims of parties at No.10

Sir Ed said, that “Cressida Dick mustn’t let him off the hook through a shady establishment stitch-up.

“The police don’t need the government’s permission to investigate a crime, and they mustn’t turn a blind eye to criminality just because it is committed by Boris Johnson.”

Scotland Yard has indicated that any investigation into lockdown gatherings will depend on evidence from the inquiry by Sue Gray, and it is has been said by The Times that she has not found sufficient evidence of criminality.

Sir Ed added, “It is ludicrous to pretend that we can leave [the investigation] to a civil servant appointed by Boris Johnson to get to the bottom of this.

“The Met Commissioner might think it’s one rule for Boris Johnson and another rule for everyone else, but that doesn’t make it right. Our city and our country deserve so much better.”

This comes as two further claims that parties with a DJ and dancing into the night happened at No.10 on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral

There are claims that a member of staff acted as a DJ there was concern that too much wine had been spilled on the carpet with dancing long into the night, it has been alleged.
