Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”I also know how much work I have to do to restore trust and to put integrity back at the heart of everything we do. I get it and I’m going to fix it.”

PM Rishi Sunak, Mail on Sunday

Facts

Rishi Sunak made these remarks in the Mail on Sunday the weekend after becoming British Prime Minister on 25 October. By the time that the article was published Sunak’s choice of cabinet members had already shown that his pledge to “restore trust and to put integrity back at the heart of everything we do” was fake. He had brought back Suella Braverman as Home Secretary just days after she was forced to resign from the same post over a serious security breach. Shockingly, he also appointed Sir Gavin Williamson, who had helped his bid for the leadership, to the cabinet despite grave questions surrounding Williamson’s character and conduct.

Verdict

Rishi Sunak’s pledge to”restore trust and to put integrity back at the heart of everything we do” was demonstrably false and insincere even by the time that he  wrote the above words in the Mail on Sunday. 

We emailed Rishi Sunak’s office and Downing Street offering them the chance to respond. The email was received, but no reply.
