Social Democratic and Labour Party Leader Colum Eastwood MP has called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to resign in the House of Commons today.

The Foyle MP said that the Prime Minister has eroded public trust and shredded public confidence at the worst possible moment in a health emergency.

Speaking during Prime Ministers Questions in the House of Commons today, Colum Eastwood MP said:

“Whether the Prime Minister wants to admit it or not, his actions over the last number of months have eroded public trust at the worst possible moment in a public health emergency. Excusing rule breaking by his own MPs in this house and ignoring rule breaking by his advisors in his own house has shredded public confidence in him and in this government.

“Given that he can’t even lead Tory MPs to back the government’s public health guidance, how can he continue to pretend that he’s leading anyone and when will he realise that the best thing he can do in the public interest is resign?”
