Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”One of my first jobs is to try and restore trust in government”

Rishi Sunak, Conservative Leadership Candidate, BBC leadership debate

Facts

During Sunak’s leadership campaign he stated that one of his first jobs would be to “try and restore trust in government.”

Sunak’s lack of commitment to this task immediately became clear with his choice of cabinet members. He brought back Suella Braverman as Home Secretary just days after she was forced to resign from the same post over a serious security breach. Almost as shocking, he appointed Sir Gavin Williamson, who had helped his bid for the leadership, to the cabinet despite grave questions surrounding Williamson’s character and conduct. Most devastating of all, as this website proves, Sunak maintained the Boris Johnson practice of making lies, falsehoods and misleading statements. 

Verdict

Once he entered No 10, Rishi Sunak forgot his promise to  “restore trust in government.” He was misleading Tory voters when he promised to do so. 

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