Drakeford: Johnson would have been found out eventually

In an interview on Channel 5 News on Wednesday, the outgoing First Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, talks to Dan Walker about his working relationship with the UK government, the covid inquiry and dealing with the loss of his wife, Clare, last year.

When asked about his dealings with former prime minister Boris Johnson, Mr Drakeford says: “If it wasn’t the pandemic, I suspect myself, that he would have been found out some other way”.
