Boris Johnson Swears He's Telling the Truth

Boris Johnson Swears He's Telling the Truth

By Global

Boris Johnson told the parliamentary inquiry that he HAD misled parliament, but he hadn't meant to.

His repeated defence was that he hadn't been advised what he was saying might be wrong (he had). And that other people hadn't told him that rules might have been broken (they had). He insisted that the leaving parties he'd attended had been essential work and berated Downing Street itself for having too many corridors to make parties safer.

Sir Bernard Jenkin led the charge asking what he would have told a press conference if the rest of the country had wanted to hold leaving parties too. Now the committee goes away to consider its findings and its verdict. We dissect the afternoon and that Stormont Brake vote that briefly interrupted proceedings.
