Stephen Morgan MP statement on publication of Sue Gray report

Commenting on the findings of the Sue Gray report, the Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, said:

“The Sue Gray report lays bare this government’s contempt for the sacrifices of the British people during the pandemic. It is crystal clear that the Prime Minister must now resign after breaking the law and lying about it.

“While the people of Portsmouth followed the rules, protected their friends and loved ones by doing all they could to reduce the pressure on our dedicated key workers, the Sue Gray report confirms the Prime Minister was throwing parties in Downing Street.

“Its findings are damning: excessive alcohol consumption, drunken brawling and poor treatment of security and cleaning staff.

“This is not a local boozer, but the culture bred under this Prime Minister in the highest office in the land.

“It is his failure of leadership that has now left his government paralysed and the people of Portsmouth and Britain paying the price of the cost of living crisis. They deserve better than this. The party’s over. It’s time for him to go.”
