Cheadle's MP urged to vote for Boris Johnson censure motion

15 Jun 2023

Liberal Democrat candidate for Cheadle, Tom Morrison, has called on our local Conservative MP to vote for a motion in Parliament next week to censure Boris Johnson.

It comes after the Privileges Committee recommended Boris Johnson is suspended for 90 days for “deliberately misleading” Parliament over partygate.

The Liberal Democrats said voting against the motion would be “an insult to bereaved families who grieved alone while Boris Johnson partied.” The vote to approve the Privileges Committee’s recommendations is expected in Parliament on Monday 19 June. 

Tom Morrison, the Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate for Cheadle, commented:

“This report is completely unprecedented. Never before has a former British Prime Minister been found to have lied to Parliament and treated the public with such contempt.

“Mary Robinson needs to examine her conscience and confirm she will vote to censure Boris Johnson. Anything less would be an insult to bereaved families across our area who grieved alone while Boris Johnson lied and partied.

“The Conservative Party is now in a full-blown civil war, whilst people struggle to afford to pay their mortgage or get a GP appointment. It’s time that Conservative MPs stopped fighting among themselves and focused on tackling the problems facing the country, from the NHS crisis to the cost of living.”
