[insert area/region] Conservative MPs will never be forgiven for standing by Boris Johnson through years of sleaze and scandal

Local Liberal Democrats blames loyal Conservative MPs for propping up Boris Johnson

Responding to Boris Johnson’s resignation, Liberal Democrat [cllr], [insert name] said:

“It has been shameful to see [insert area/region] Conservative MP stand loyally by Boris Johnson's through years of scandals and lies. It is clear they only acted at the very last minute to save their own skin.

“Local people tell me they will never forgive Conservative MPs for standing by Boris Johnson for so long.

“Conservative MPs voted through unfair tax hikes on working families, in favour of water companies being allowed to pump sewage into our rivers, and supported the scrapping of triple-lock pensions.

"It is Conservative MPs, not just Boris Johnson, who have done unspeakable damage to our country. 

“Britain needs change and real leadership to deal with the cost of living crisis and record NHS waiting times. The Conservative party is just not up to the job."

Responding to Boris Johnson resigning as Prime Minister, Liberal Democrat Leader Ed Davey said:

“It has always been clear that Boris Johnson is unfit to lead our country. The public won't forgive the Conservatives for propping him up for so long.

“Conservative MPs have spent months defending Boris Johnson instead of focusing on the cost-of-living crisis and the crisis in our NHS.

“Across the country, lifelong Conservative voters are fed up with being taken for granted. Johnson or no Johnson, trust in the Conservative party has gone and it will not be coming back.”
