Ministers won't be sacked for minor rule breaking, under new guidelines

 

Ministers who break standards rules in a "minor" way will not be expected to resign or face the sack, under new government guidelines.

It has long been a convention that MPs should quit government for breaking the Ministerial Code in any way.

But in a new section of the code, the PM has been given the option of ordering a lesser sanction instead.

Labour has accused Boris Johnson of "watering down" standards in public life.

The changes follow a review of the Ministerial Code by advisory body the Committee on Standards in Public Life, which made a series of recommendations for reforms in a report.

The contentious reforms come as Prime Minister Boris Johnson faces an inquiry by a committee of MPs into whether he misled Parliament about lockdown-busting parties in Downing Street.

Next,  things like Child Abuse, Genocide and Nipple Licking whilst the victim is unconscious from date rape drugs will be specifically excused under the ministerial code.

 

I thought it already was? .......... 🤣

Mind you, when you consider folk like Cameron who, allegedly, stuck his knob in a dead pigs head, then changing the rules to suit themselves and partying during Covid are just minor distractions.
