CLACKS politicians have once again called for Boris Johnson to resign after the publication of Sue Gray’s report into lockdown breaches at Downing Street.

The long-awaited report has found multiple social events took place at 10 Downing Street while the rest of the UK were abiding by the government’s own Covid-19 restrictions.

Also included in the report is a photograph of Johnson with a can of beer in his hand in the Cabinet Room on his birthday in June 2020 at the height of the first lockdown.

Speaking in the House of Commons after the publication of the report, he said: "I briefly attended such gatherings to thank them for their service, which I believe is one of the essential duties of leadership and particularly important when people need to feel that their contributions have been appreciated and to keep morale as high as possible."

Despite his latest apologies for breaking the rules, politicians from across the political spectrum throughout Clackmannanshire have once again called for him to resign.

Alexander Stewart, Conservative MSP for Mid-Scotland & Fife, said: “My position has not changed; I continue my disappointment, disgust and dismay at the behaviour of Boris Johnson and all those involved.

“The Sue Gray report makes for some very uncomfortable reading and, if I was the prime minister, I would be seriously considering my position.”

Keith Brown, MSP for the Clackmannanshire and Dunblane constituency, added: “Sue Gray’s report into the drinking and partying at Number 10 is utterly damning.

“It is behaviour that should have been recognised as unacceptable in the best of times – in the middle of a pandemic when people were being told they couldn’t hold the hand of a dying relative, it is simply inexcusable.

“Clearly Boris Johnson was part of all of this and, just as clearly, he lied to parliament.

"He says that he has taken 'full responsibility', but he hasn’t. If he had, he would have resigned.”

Mid Scotland and Fife Labour MSP Alex Rowley highlighted the "unprecedented hardship' most people were facing through the pandemic era.

He continued: "Number 10 became the most fined address in the UK for violations of the prime minister’s own laws.

“For the sake of all those across the country who sacrificed to keep others safe, he must do the right thing and resign.”

Mark Ruskell, MSP for Mid-Scotland & Fife Region, added: “This report is damning and lays bare the utter contempt the prime minister has for the general public.

“At a time when people in Clacks and across the UK were making unbelievable sacrifices, Boris Johnson and his entourage were living it up, breaking the rules, and laughing about it, time after time.

“Boris Johnson must be held to account for this appalling behaviour. He can no longer remain in post."
