Former attorney general calls Boris Johnson ‘nonsense’
Boris Johnson was accused on Saturday by a former attorney general of being “unjust,” while Conservative donors have expressed concern over new lawsuits against the Prime Minister.
The criticism of Dominic Grieve, the former attorney general of Tory, followed a rebellion Johnson and former Prime Minister Dominic Cummings, who accuses him of “a serious decline in the standard of integrity and integrity of the country”.
The complaint focused on Cummings’ claim that Johnson wanted donors to “pay secretly to renovate” his Number 10 Downing Street home, while Labor now wants to see all correspondence related to the project.
The former attorney general said “it’s just one example of the chaos Johnson seems to have brought to his attention”.
Grieve, who was thrown out of the Tory party in 2019 by Johnson for his views on Brexit, told BBC Today that the Prime Minister was “imperfect”.
Downing Street insists that all regulations are kept in the repair work, supervised by Johnson’s colleague Carrie Symonds, and that “all donations reported are publicly advertised and published”.
On Friday the government said “funding for major reforms this year has been met by the Prime Minister personally.”
The Labor Party has asked for a thorough investigation. Steve Reed, secretary of the shadow department staff, said: “We don’t know how much the money has been spent or if the donor has received anything.”
Cummings said writing a blog On Friday he told Johnson that “what he wanted donors to pay for private repairs to repair was ridiculous, stupid, probably illegal and almost violated the law by properly defining political contributions”.
Cummings published the blog after Downing Street said he had a number of hard times. Johnson is the winner of his 2016 Brexit victory and the election victory in 2019 Tory is now closed to the public.
The Prime Minister should be greatly lost if his former adviser continues to sue – with the help of text or e-mail evidence – of what happened to the arrival of Cummings on Downing Street in July 2019 and his dismissal in November 2020.
Downing Street’s surprise decision Friday to fight the Cummings – recognizing him as the one to issue the leak – has created an uncoordinated fight between a former adviser with a lot of secrets to say and a little lost and with a head office in the country.
One party official said, “Boris can’t win the war, so why did he start? He must have climbed on top of him and ignored Dom. Now we’ll have a few weeks,” he said.
A pro-party activist warned: “This could be done away with very quickly. We don’t need this as we make important decisions in the community ”. Downing Street tried to raise the line Friday night, but the damage had already been done.
Since Cummings left at No. 10 in November, Johnson has been concerned about what his former assistant could do. In recent weeks, reconciliation efforts have not been made.
Ben Elliot, a fellow Tory party chairman, was appointed to speak with the Cummings to promote peace and reduce the release of devastating revelations about Johnson and his Downing Street career.
According to an official in Tory who is aware of this, Elliot’s efforts failed to succeed near his assistant. “Ben exchanged lists with Dom trying to get him back. Instead he just threatened to blow everything up,” the man said.
Two major risks are well-known. The first is that Cummings talks a lot about Johnson leading political rallies or allegedly breaking the rules.
Johnson suspended parliament in 2019 during the Brexit crisis – which was overturned by the Supreme Court – and said he was ready to violate Brexit international law by 2020.
Its decisive decision and the Conservative party’s main focus on Labor can mean that people are less affected. On Friday he said people “don’t give a monkey” about who leaks government secrets.
The second problem is that Cummings, who will testify to lawmakers next month about how Covid governs, will raise the profile of Johnson’s weak leadership in the face of adversity.
The release of plans for a second national shutdown last November saw some as an attempt to ensure that Mr Johnson – who had temporarily joined on October 30 – did not change his mind.
Cummings insists he was not a striker, citing Henry Newman, the No. 10 adviser and Michael Gove’s teammate. Downing Street officials confirmed that Cummings was responsible for the release.
Cummings and Newman both want to be shut down and the allegations show that someone fears Johnson may lose heart. An elder named Tory states: “It’s very common in the past for some time to be honest.
Meanwhile Johnson’s special envoy to the Gulf, Lord Udny-Lister, has resigned and resigned from the government, a Downing Street spokesman said in a letter sent Friday.
The departure of Udny-Lister, was first mentioned by Daily Telegraph, follows a series of revelations about the communication between consultants and business organizations while working for the government.
