Oxford MP Anneliese Dodds has called for Boris Johnson to resign after the Sue Gray report laid bare the raucous culture of drinking that led to lockdown breaches in Downing Street.

The Prime Minister refused to resign despite accepting the “bitter and painful” conclusions of the senior official’s inquiry that revealed lurid details of partying in Government.

He said he “overwhelmingly” believes he should stay in power to tackle the nation’s challenges including the soaring costs of food and energy.

Boris Johnson will now try to shift attention to the cost-of-living crisis. 

Anneliese Dodds, Labour Party chairwoman and Oxford East MP, tweeted her interview on BBC Politics Live and wrote: "Our nurses and doctors worked around the clock during the pandemic. They didn't stop for ‘wine time’.

"The #SueGrayReport shows the extent of the rot at Number 10 and the buck stops with the Prime Minister. He should resign."
