Zahawi sacking raises big questions about PM judgement
The sacking of Nadhim Zahawi raises big questions for the Prime Minister, say the Scottish Greens. The Party has said that the Tories’ revolving door of scandal, borderline corruption and incompetence is spinning out of control.
The Scottish Greens economy spokesperson, Maggie Chapman MSP said:
“It is good that Zahawi has gone, but this isn't just about him. It's also about the judgement of the Prime Minister, who clearly has serious questions to answer over this whole affair.
“What did he know, when did he know it, and why has he dithered so long when it was clear Nadhim Zahawi had broken the ministerial code and the trust placed in him?
“This revolving door of scandal, borderline corruption and incompetence is spinning out of control. This Prime Minister, like the previous two before him, is now shrouded in controversy.
“He must explain his actions to the nation and stake what's left of his reputation on there being no more scandals hiding in the shadows of his cabinet.
“The Tories cannot be trusted. This rotten husk of a government must go, and go now.”
