BARNSLEY Central MP Dan Jarvis has branded Prime Minister Boris Johnson ‘unfit for the office he holds’ following the publication of Sue Gray’s report into allegations of lockdown-breaching gatherings.
The senior civil servant investigated 16 gatherings, 12 of which are subject to a Met Police investigation.
The report found that ‘some of the behaviours surrounding these gatherings is difficult to justify’, and found ‘failures of leadership and judgement’ in Downing Street.
It also condemned the ‘excessive consumption of alcohol’, stating it is ‘not appropriate in a professional workplace at any time’.
Dan, who is also Mayor of South Yorkshire, said: “Sue Gray’s report reveals a failure of leadership and judgement at the highest level of government.
“It is a damning indictment of the Prime Minister.
“Twelve parties are now being investigated by the Met, including one held in Johnson’s own flat.
“He has continually proven himself to be fundamentally unfit for the office he holds.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
