Conservative president says public is not worried about prime minister’s refusal to apologize for transgression


“I think what people want, they accept what we said that we made mistakes, they want this government to actually focus on the work to do.”

Tory President Oliver Dowden is of the opinion that the public does not mind Prime Minister Boris Johnson who refuses to say “sorry” about the corruption scandal and Tory squalor and would rather “focus on the work in progress”.

Dowden was asked by Sky News’ Kay Burley why the prime minister had not apologized for the sleazy scandal.

He replied: “We made mistakes, we would have done things differently and we said we regret it.”

Pushed once again as to why Boris Johnson can’t apologize, Dowden replied, “You start arguing about semantics on this. I think the prime minister said he regrets it, he said mistakes were made, but in reality the prime minister’s attention is actually, and look what he did over the weekend with the climate change summit to him. huge progress we made there, more announcements today about enhancement programs, I think what people want, they accept what we said we made mistakes, they want this government to actually focus on the work to do and it is exactly what we are doing “.

The conservative corruption controversy saw Owen Paterson resign as an MP after committing a “glaring” violation of lobbying rules. Paterson was found to have “repeatedly” used his position as an MP for the benefit of two companies that paid him as a consultant following an investigation by Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Kathryn Stone. The government’s attempt to free him from trouble by eliminating the independent watchdog has since failed.

It has also been revealed since Geoffrey Cox made more than £ 800,000 while working for the Withers law firm, which represents the British Virgin Islands government in a UK government-initiated corruption case. Transportation Secretary Grant Shapps, who is an avid amateur pilot, has also been accused of using taxpayer money to support airports that defy planning developments.

According to the latest Opinium poll for the Observer, Labor recorded their first poll ahead of Conservatives for nearly a year in the wake of the tory and corruption squabble.
