Luke Pollard MP Member of Parliament for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport
Boris Johnson needs to go now, not cling on to power for months with a government that’s not functioning.
He was always unfit for office, but the rot doesn’t stop at the top. Tory MPs in the South West and across the country propped him up for too long, complicit in his lies, deception and disregard for public office.
If they do not get rid of him now, then Labour will step up in the national interest and bring a vote of no confidence.
After twelve years in power, this is the Tories’ legacy: the highest NHS waiting times on record, economic stagnation, and the worst cost-of-living crisis in recent history. And now they have inflicted chaos upon the country.
Swapping out one Tory Prime Minister for another won’t cut it. We deserve a fresh start, and that means getting rid of this government altogether.
