Boris Johnson will face a parliamentary investigation into lies about the blockade of political parties

On Thursday, British lawmakers ordered a parliamentary investigation into prime minister Boris Johnson, who allegedly lied about whether he had violated coronavirus restrictions by participating in illegal gatherings during the epidemic.
The move received a “yes” call in the house of Commons without a formal vote, which means that the parliamentary privileges committee will investigate whether Johnson deliberately misled Parliament – a crime of resignation in history if proved to be true.
This has put more pressure on a conservative Prime Minister whose grip on power has been shaken by claiming to defy the epidemiological rules he imposed on his country, and then repeatedly failed to admit it.
The opposition Labour Party called for a vote in the house of Commons. Ministers found deliberately misleading parliament usually resign.
Labour leader Keir Starmer said his measures were aimed at upholding “the simple principles of honesty, integrity and telling the truth that are essential in our politics”
“It’s a British principle… That guides the members of every political party in the house of Representatives,” stammer said. “But this is an attacked principle.”
Johnson’s Conservatives are in the majority in parliament, but many members of Parliament are uneasy about the prime minister’s behavior and support the actions of the opposition. The government initially said it would order Conservative MPs to oppose the Labor Party’s motion, but later withdrew this statement and gave them the right to vote freely in the case of Party unrest.
Ian Blackford, a member of the Scottish National Party, said in the house of Commons: “the fact is simple, that’s it – he lied to avoid being caught, and once caught, he lied again.”.
Legislators are usually forbidden to accuse each other of lying, but Blackford was not condemned by the speaker.
Johnson did not vote in the scandal, which shook his leadership in the United States and the conservative party. In India, more than 6400 kilometers away, he insisted that he wanted to “continue to work” and lead the country.
Johnson again denied deliberately misleading Parliament and insisted that he would lead the Conservative Party in the next national election in 2024.
“Frankly, I have nothing to hide,” Johnson told Sky News during a visit to Gujarat in western India. “I want to continue my election.”
Johnson attended his birthday party in his office in June 2020 and was fined £ 50 ($80) by police last week when Britons were banned from meeting friends and family and even visiting dying relatives. Johnson was the first British Prime Minister to be found to have broken the law during his tenure.
Johnson’s changing defense – initially saying there was no illegal gathering, and then claiming that “I didn’t expect” the birthday was a party – attracted ridicule and anger from opponents who asked him to resign.

Conservatives put on the spot

More and more conservatives are uneasy about defending a leader who violates the rules he imposes on the country. Some people publicly called for Johnson to step down, and the number is increasing. Others are waiting to see if public anger will translate into the Conservative Party’s defeat in the local elections on May 5.
“It’s completely frustrating to be asked to defend untenable people,” said William Wragg, a Conservative MP. “Every time a part of us withers.”
Senator Steve Baker, who is still a famous supporter until now, said Johnson “should have left long ago” because he violated the “letter and spirit” of the rules.
“I will definitely vote for this motion,” he said. “But in fact, the prime minister should know that the show is over.”
The investigation of the privilege committee will not begin until the dual investigation of “party gate” by the police and civil servants is completed.
Senior civil servant Hugh gray is investigating 16 incidents, including Johnson’s “bring your own drinks” office party in his office at 10 Downing Street and other government buildings and “wine time Friday”. Police are investigating more than a dozen incidents and have so far paid at least 50 fines, including Johnson, his wife, Carrie and Treasury Secretary rich sunak. Johnson could still face more police fines.
Johnson and his allies believed that it was reckless for the country to change leaders during the Ukrainian war and the tightening of the cost of living caused by soaring energy and food prices.
