Subject: Open Letter to James Gray MP
Importance: High

Dear James,

Today, we all learned of the staggering news that the Prime Minister, his wife and the Chancellor of the Exchequer are all recipients of the latest round of fixed penalty notices issued by the Metropolitan Police for breaches of Covid regulations. This is made all the worse by the fact that these offences took place in Downing Street and their existence was repeatedly denied in Parliament by the Prime Minister.

When challenged on this matter before, you declared that you would 'wait and see' what action, if any, would be taken by the Metropolitan Police following their investigation. We now know the answer - and it is a damning one.

While it may be in the collective opposition parties' interests for this Prime Minister and Chancellor to remain in Office and lead your Party into the next General Election, it is certainly not in the interests of our Country or public trust in politics and therefore our democracy.

Sadly, as there is no General Election in immediate sight, the only electorate that can remove Mr Johnson from No 10 is you and your fellow Tory MPs. Therefore, I call upon you to submit immediately your letter of No Confidence in Boris Johnson as Prime Minister to the Chair of the Conservative 1922 Committee. Let this dire chapter be brought to a speedy end.

Yours sincerely

Cllr Dr Brian Mathew
Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesperson for North Wiltshire
