Early this morning, the Labour party started asking for money from supporters in advance of the upcoming byelection in Uxbridge and South Ruislip.
Keir Starmer writes to his supporters in an email: “[Boris Johnson] believed himself to be above the law. He treated the British public with contempt, partying while the nation grieved.
“Labour now has an opportunity to deliver a historic victory. One that will send a real message about the sort of country we want to see, where decency and respect in our politics matters.
“Rishi Sunak knows this moment is critical and will throw everything at it. We cannot let the Tories outspend us. They cannot have that advantage.
Victory in this contest is a vital step towards the next Labour government.”
Johnson’s lack of apology ‘very Trumpian’
Will Walden, a former assistant to Boris Johnson, has added a little more to his earlier statement that he did not believe his political career was over.
Later, he stated that Donald Trump’s acts are comparable to those of his former boss in that both refuse to accept responsibility for their conduct.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “It feels to me he is angry and he is convinced by his own truth and his own righteousness. There’s no apology, no taking responsibility. It all feels very Trumpian.
“I think a large part of him actually believes that he really has been done wrong.”
