Crawley Tories quit over criticism of Boris Johnson

CONSERVATIVE councilors walked out of a Crawley Borough Council meeting after the leader began criticizing Boris Johnson.

Throughout Wednesday’s (20 July) council meeting, Labor Party’s Michael Jones tabled a motion to “restore decency in public life”.

Many of the Tories left after Mr Jones began dealing with the soon-to-be-deceased Prime Minister, saying it was “shocking” that “someone so badly discredited should be tolerated to stay”.

He added: “We stopped doing that [motion] share because we thought local people would want their local representatives to have a say.”

The motion itself called for Mr Johnson to step down as Prime Minister.

When it was worn, Mr Jones was only speaking to himself and his fellow Labor Council members as the Conservative cohort left the room.

The main problem for the Tories was that the motion had to be voted on before it was even debated – an unusual situation at any council meeting.

This led to an objection from leader Duncan Crow, who described the situation as “unreasonable”, followed by the rather odd sight of council members voting on whether or not to vote on the motion.

When that vote was approved, Mr Crow and the rest of his team also left the room – too much ridicule from the Labor group.

Of course, for what it was worth, the proposal was accepted. Crawley Tories quit over criticism of Boris Johnson
