MPs astonished at government’s defence of Boris Johnson

Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner held her head in her hands and Steve Reed was left open-mouthed as the minister for the Cabinet Office told MPs that the prime minister “acted with probity” when appointing Chris Pincher as deputy chief whip.

Michael Ellis was responding to a Labour urgent question in the Commons on the matter.

Mr Pincher resigned as deputy chief whip last week over allegations that he "groped" two men in a private members' club.

Boris Johnson Won't Resign: How Might He Be Forced Out?

Boris Johnson’s relationship with the truth is once again dominating headlines. After denying any knowledge of the sexual harrassment allegations against his disgraced former deputy chief whip, the Prime Minster announced that he had been personally briefed about Chris Pincher’s history, before promoting him. It was the final straw for two heavyweight members of his cabinet - Chancellor of the Exchequor Rishi Sunak, and Health Secretary, Sajid Javid - who resigned within 10 minutes of each other. And a slew of resignations flooded in, in the hours that followed. But Johnson shows no signs of quitting in the face of another political battering, so this video explains the other ways Boris Johnson could be booted as PM. Report by Braybrooks.
