Winston Marshall said Boris Johnson’s “incompetence” as well as a host of social problems meant the Prime Minister “should have long since gone”.
The former lead guitarist for Mumford and Sons has branded Mr Johnson a “liar” and highlighted the problems with public sector strikes, labor shortages and the NHS.
Marshall made the remarks during an appearance in the BBC’s Question Times, alongside political figures including Alistair Campbell and Conservative MP Dehenna Davison.
He said: “This is the Prime Minister who is the only incumbent Prime Minister who has ever been charged with a criminal offence.
“We talked about him being a liar and all that, but what about his incompetence?
“Dude, inflation is gone… now 9.1% (and) expected to go up to 11%, almost the entire public sector is on strike or about to go on strike.
“There are labor shortages in agriculture and air travel, as well as other industries… and I haven’t even talked about the NHS.
“This is the government that aims to be the safe hand for the economy, isn’t it?
“This is utter incompetence, and that’s why he should have left long ago.”
It comes after Mr Johnson resigned from the highest job, in which he made the “eccentric” decision of colleagues and Cabinet MPs to force him out.
The Tory leader has said he intends to stay in office until a successor is elected, a process that could take months, sparking backlash from party members and political opponents over the effort. his to “stick” at number 10 until the fall.
