A day after his controversial reshuffle, the Prime Minister has been slammed for “humiliating” his new Cabinet in its first meeting today.
According to reporters, Boris Johnson “engaged in a call and response” with the Cabinet – asking them to repeat the Conservatives’ manifesto pledges.
Writing on Twitter, backbench Labour MP David Lammy responded to the news by saying the PM had “lobotomised” Cabinet ministers, and that they should resign out of humiliation.
And this is not the first time Johnson has attempted this sort of stunt.
In December, Johnson played the same routine, even repeating some stats that had been widely debunked.
Continuing to treat senior Cabinet ministers like school children will merely fuel the concern that Johnson is ruling over Britain like a dictator.
For the good of the country, and democracy, they should all resign.
