Boris Johnson quits as MP – with immediate effect

Committee report published 15 June: Boris Johnson deliberately misled MPs over Partygate

MPs investigating the ex-PM say he committed a “serious contempt” by misleading the House of Commons.

Boris Johnson: report is a lie and a charade.  Calls the findings ‘political assassinations’.

Earlier, Mr Johnson had seen an advance copy of the report.

Boris Johnson is standing down immediately as a Conservative MP after an investigation into the Partygate scandal found he misled parliament.  It recommended a lengthy suspension from the House of Commons.

The former prime minister angrily accused the investigation of trying to drive him out, and claimed there was a “witch-hunt under way, to take revenge for Brexit and ultimately to reverse the 2016 referendum result”.

In a bitter 1,000-word statement, he attacked Rishi Sunak’s government, blaming the current prime minister for rising taxes, not being Conservative enough and failing to make the most of Brexit.
