Jacob Rees-Mogg clearly doesn’t think Johnson’s Committee hearing is worth the time of day.
It comes as Nadine Dorries claimed there is “no doubt” the Privileges Committee will find against Boris Johnson as she labelled the partygate investigation a “kangaroo court”.
Ms Dorries told her Friday Night with Nadine show on TalkTV: “I don’t think there was ever a world in which this committee was going to find Boris innocent. The committee have demonstrated very clearly that they have decided early on to find him guilty.
“The committee knew that they had not a shred of evidence to prove that he misled with intent. They changed the rules, lowered the bar and inserted the vague term ‘reckless’ into the terms of reference.
“Boris Johnson will be found guilty by this kangaroo court. There is no doubt about that. And that in itself will be a disgraceful and possibly unlawful conclusion with serious reputational consequences.”
Back to Mogg and he tweeted: “Boris is doing very well against the marsupials.”
So he doesn’t agree with the committee, even though it hasn’t concluded anything.
Anyway, he said that Boris Johnson has “won in the court of public opinion.”
Thing is the data from YouGov doesn’t agree.
As Dr Mike Galsworthy: “Actual data from the court of public opinion:
“Did Johnson knowingly mislead Parliament? Yes – 66% No – 15%”
Or the Question Time audience vote on wether they agreed with Johnson?
