'It's not working!' James Cleverly in furious clash with GMB host amid Boris Johnson probe


ITV Good Morning Britain host Sean Fletcher grilled the minister on the Number 10 upgrade row. He said: “The Conservative Party have gone down the route where you’re going to play a straight bat, hit the balls out and the ground, and just not give anything. But it’s not working.

“The polls are showing it’s not working. You must be able to give something.”

Mr Clverly responded: “All I can do is give you the answer I gave a few minutes ago.

“You’re asking me to provide details that I don’t have.

“The Prime Minister has given the details he is going to give and we wait for the outcome of those reports.”

The Foreign Office minister refused to speculate about whether Boris Johnson would resign if he was found to have breached the ministerial code over flat renovations.

Speaking to Times Radio Mr Cleverly said: “The investigations and reports that will come out into the public domain about this need to come out.

“I’m not going to speculate about what the content of those reports will be or how the Prime Minister responds to any of those reports.

“Speculating about the outcome or what comes next is not right.

“We’ll let the reports do their thing and the Prime Minister will make the decisions based on any recommendations that those reports have in them.”
