The PM Boris Johnson came under pressure for attending a party during first lockdown. The Conservative party’s chairman stated that removing Boris Johnson from downing street will only lead to ‘instability and uncertainty’. Oliver Dowden went on to state that changing the leader now would ‘not be in the national interest’. Last week, Mr Johnson – along with his wife and Chancellor Rishi Sunak – was fined by police for attending a birthday party thrown in his honour in the Cabinet Room in June 2020. Despite his apoligies on the matter resignation calls were set out with the SNP and Liberal Democrats and a number of senior Tories said that it was time for Boris Johnson to go home. This has been the first time a sitting prime minister had been found to break the law.
