Matt Hancock has suggested that Boris Johnson has bigger things than Partygate “on his plate”.
The former health secretary was asked for his views on the Downing Street scandals – and if the prime minister should resign – during an appearance on The Diary Of A CEO podcast.
“He has so many other things on his plate. Russia, Crimea. Getting out of the pandemic, that was a big call… getting that right,” Mr Hancock said.
When asked why he hasn’t been “brought into Partygate”, the former cabinet minister joked that he “wasn’t invited” to any parties.
