MPs are to vote on whether or not the Prime Minister misled parliament over the Downing Street parties which were held during lockdown.
Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey has urged Tory members to do their “patriotic duty” and kick out the Prime Minister from “Downing Street.”
Sir Ed brutally slammed the Prime Minister and said that the “British public have declared Boris Johnson a liar.
“Now it’s time for parliament to do the same.
“The country cannot afford a Prime Minister who breaks the law and lies about it, especially when families are facing a cost-of-living crisis.
“Johnson has taken the British people for fools for far too long, and it’s time for Conservative MPs to show where they stand.
“They must do their patriotic duty and kick Boris Johnson out of Downing Street once and for all.”
On Tuesday the Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry suggested there should be a Tory Party coup to remove the Prime Minister from his post.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4 over the situation, she said, “Whatever means we take, the difficulty we will always have is that, since the 2019 election, the Conservatives have an 80-seat majority when there is a vote.
“Unless Conservative MPs can look at their consciences and vote the right way, we are not going to get the sort of result that we should get.”
Johnson is due to deliver a speech today oat 4:15 in the House of Commons to MPs after receiving a fine over the ongoing partygate scandal.
On Thursday MPs will be allowed to vote on whether Johnson had misled MPs, the Speaker of the House Sir Lindsay Hoyle said, “It is not for me to police the ministerial code, I have no jurisdiction over the ministerial code even though a lot of people seem to think I have. It is not the case.
“Secondly, it is not for me to determine whether or not the prime minister has committed a contempt. My role is to decide whether there is an arguable case to be examined.
“Having considered the issue, having taken advice from the clerks of the House, I’ve decided that this is a matter that I should allow the precedence accorded to the issue of privilege.
“Therefore, (Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer) may table a motion for debate on Thursday.”
