Rishi Sunak will give Boris Johnson’s Honours list the nod, which has made a lot of people angry.
If you were cynical could Johnson’s WhatApp threats and general confusion caused last week, meant that this has gone through?
Is the earth also flat, or am I right?
Times Political editor broke the story and tweeted: “Exclusive: Rishi Sunak poised to wave through Boris Johnson’s resignation honours list within weeks, triggering two by-elections Nadine Dorries & Alok Sharma expected to stand down to take peerages Sunak said to want to ‘clear the decks’”.
Boris Johnson’s Honours list
The list is believed to contain around 50 people, including Nadine Dorries and there were rumours of his dad being knighted.
The might not be happening, but you never know.
Last month, Angela Rayner, Labour’s deputy leader, said it was impossible for the list to go ahead due to Johnson facing fresh accusations relating to Covid rule breaches.
She said: “With the disgraced former prime minister now facing new allegations and under multiple investigations, there should be no question of Rishi Sunak approving honours for his cronies and cheerleaders.
“The prime minister should refuse to do Boris Johnson’s bidding and make it clear that he will reject these demands.
“His top priority right now should be tackling the cost of living crisis facing ordinary people, not handing out more rewards for 13 years of Tory failure.”
