Lord Geidt resigned as ethics watchdog after being placed in an ‘impossible and despicable’ position by Boris Johnson.

His predecessor, Sir Alex Allan, also resigned after the Prime Minister refused to sack Priti Patel for breaching the Ministerial Code.

Their resignations are a testament to the rot at the heart of Downing Street.

Those tasked with maintaining standards in public life have found that to be impossible during Mr Johnson’s tenure.

Rather than show remorse or improve his behavior, the Prime Minister is considering abolishing the role of ethics adviser.

This typifies his biased approach to the job and follows his decision to rewrite the Ministerial Code for his own benefit.

The current system for overseeing the Prime Minister’s role is not fit for purpose. It relies on the resident of No. 10 to act with honesty and decency – concepts alien to Mr Johnson.

The role of the ethics watchdog should not be eliminated but strengthened.

The Tories’ mismanagement has left a record 6.5 million people on a waiting list for hospital appointments. This week Health Secretary Sajid Javid said the NHS no longer needs money – to tell the families of those who have lost loved ones.
