A load of evidence including photos and statements has been released by the MPs investigating former PM Boris Johnson over Partygate, ahead of a hearing crucial to his political future today.
It comes as Andrew Marr appears to have already destroyed Johnson’s argument in lass than a 1 min!
Included in this new batch of information is evidence from the UK’s top civil servant saying he did not give the former PM assurances about whether Covid rules were followed in No 10.
Mr Johnson has admitted he did mislead MPs over Partygate but not on purpose.
He says Wednesday’s televised hearing will vindicate him.
The cross-party group of MPs, chaired by Labour grandee Harriet Harman, is examining whether he knowingly misled parliament about COVID rule-breaking parties in Downing Street during the pandemic.
The seven-member Commons privileges committee is investigating whether what Mr Johnson told Parliament stopped it from properly holding him to account.
Andrew Marr was on LBC when he delivered his savage attack on Johnson’s defence.
