‘Rottenness at heart of Tories flows from PM who thinks rules are for others’

The Committee on Standards in Public Life was set up in the wake of Tory sleaze scandals under John Major.

It exists to make sure that ministers stick to the principles of integrity, honesty, transparency and selflessness.

Boris Johnson clearly doesn’t give a fig for such concepts.

If he did he would not have appointed former Bullingdon Club colleague Ewen Fergusson to the committee.

How can an organisation charged with policing cronyism operate successfully when it has a crony among its members?

The PM is making a mockery of accountability. His former ethics adviser quit after he failed to sack Priti Patel for bullying.

He has also refused to act over Covid contracts going to Tory donors and supporters.

There is a rottenness at the heart of this Government and it flows from a leader who believes that rules are for other people.
