Steve Baker with a withering put-down of Boris in the Chamber this afternoon, revealing he will vote in favour of Labour’s investigation motion – and calling for the Prime Minister to resign:
“I feel much more Ezekiel 7:3 about this… I don’t want to forgive him
“I am afraid I am now in a position where I have to acknowledge that if the Prime Minister occupied any other office of senior responsibility, if he was a secretary of state, if he was a minister of state, a parliamentary under secretary, a permanent secretary, a director general, if he was the chief executive of a private company or a board director he would be long gone.
The Prime Minister should be long gone, I’ll certainly vote for this motion but really, the Prime Minister should just know, the gig is up.”
Steve Baker has a strong moral core, perhaps this should not have been unexpected…
