Boris Johnson Can't Lead UK - Held In Contempt By His Own Brother

5 September 2019

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, has described Boris Johnson’s Brother - Jo Johnson - quitting as an MP as confirmation the Prime Minister is not trusted ever within his own family.

Jo Johnson said he was leaving politics because he is "torn between family loyalty and the national interest".

Manuel Cortes said: “The cat is well and truly out of the bag now. This bungling Prime Minster is not trusted even by his own brother.

“How can the British people ever trust him on Brexit or in a general election when he is held in open contempt by his own family?

“It's crystal clear Labour can't trust duplicitous Johnson to send Donald Tusk a letter seeking an extension to Article 50 by 19th October.

“Jeremy Corbyn must keep stick to his guns until Johnson has done this. Parliament will decide when our impending general election will occur - after the risk of no-deal Brexit is off the table.”
