Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”It is not unusual to come back a day early from an international visit”

Greg Hands, International Trade Minister, Sky News

Facts

International trade minister Greg Hands had been asked by Sky News why Kwarteng was flying back from the IMF a day early.  Kwarteng was sacked shortly afterwards.

Verdict

If Greg Hands was suggesting that Kwarteng’s sudden return from the IMF conference to London was a normal event he was being disingenuous. In fairness he was in an impossible position, having been thrown a hospital pass when asked to tour TV studios that day.

We emailed Greg Hands’ office offering him the chance to respond. The email was received, but no reply.
