LibDem Cllr Matt McCabe calls on Jacob Rees Mogg to vote for a motion in Parliament to censure Boris Johnson.
It comes after the Privileges Committee recommended Boris Johnson is suspended for 90 days for “deliberately misleading” Parliament over ‘partygate’.
The Liberal Democrats said voting against the motion would be “an insult to bereaved families who grieved alone while Boris Johnson partied.”
The vote to approve the Privileges Committee’s recommendations is expected in Parliament on Monday 19 June. Cllr Matt McCabe commented: “This report is completely unprecedented. Never before has a former British Prime Minister been found to have lied to Parliament and treated the public with such contempt.
“Conservative MPs across the West of England, such as Jacob Rees-Mogg, need to examine their conscience and confirm they will vote to censure Boris Johnson. Anything less would be an insult to bereaved families who grieved alone while Boris Johnson lied and partied.
“The Conservative Party is now in a full blown civil war, while people struggle to afford to pay their mortgage or get a GP appointment. It’s time that Conservative MPs stopped fighting among themselves and focused on tackling the problems facing the country, from the NHS crisis to the cost of living.”
