Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown suggested that Britain must stop wasting time on Boris Johnson’s ‘Partygate’ and focus on more important matters instead. The 1922 Committee Treasurer admitted receiving a high amount of emails from people who are frustrated with the Prime Minister’s lack of leadership rather than complaining about the soaring cost of living and inflation. And Sir Geoffrey spoke eloquently about the issues affecting Britain right now, urging Mr Johnson to come up with a solution regarding the tax hike and the increasing energy bills as ordinary people may struggle to “make ends meet”.
He pleaded with Britons to switch their attentions to that rather than losing sleep over Mr Johnson’s irrelevant party claims.
He told Andrew Castle on LBC that postponing the Green Levy would already be a great start.
He said: “It’s more likely those people who are dissatisfied with Boris Johnson’s leadership are gonna be the ones that email me rather than those that are struggling to make ends meet.
“It’s not to say that the costs of living for those people isn’t extremely important and I am very concerned and that is one of the big issues that Boris Johnson’s gonna get back to.

“What’s he going to do with, you know, there’s been calls for these tax increases to be postponed.
“There’s been calls for something to be done about energy bills, These are really big, serious issues for a lot of people in this country.
“And that is the sort of agenda we need to get back to rather than be constantly worrying about Partygate!”
He predicted the beginning of spring to be “very difficult” from a financial viewpoint for a number of ordinary families across the UK.

Despite being pressed by Mr Castle to reveal the quantity of no confidence letters Sir Graham Brady received, the Committee Treasurer remained coy.
He said that the only person who can respond to that question is Sir Graham himself but he would never divulge such confidential information.
Sir Clifton-Brown added: “Andrew, I love coming on your programme and I will answer any question honestly.
“But I can’t tell you, I absolutely can assure you and your listeners that Mister Graham Brady will never disclose to anybody, let alone his officers!”
