Munilla Mirza, Head of Policy for Downing Street, said Boris Johnson did not apologize for making “cunning” accusations against Labor leader Keir Starmer in parliament. Resigned to.

In a fierce exchange at the House of Commons on January 31, Johnson was pressured on suspicion of a COVID-19 lockdown breach in Downing Street, and a former prosecutor, the opposition leader, said, “To prosecute journalists. I spent my time. ” And before his death in 2011, he did not prosecute Jimmy Savile, one of Britain’s most vicious sex offenders.

As the director of the public prosecutor’s office, Starmer apologized for not prosecuting Saville on behalf of the Public Prosecutor’s Office (CPS) in 2013. However, there is no evidence that he played a personal role in the failure.

In criticism from both the opposition and the Conservatives, Johnson retreated on February 3, admitting that Starmer “had nothing to do with these decisions personally.”

However, according to Mirza’s resignation reported by Spectator, the Prime Minister has stopped announcing the apology she requested.

In a letter to Johnson, Mirza wrote:

“There was no fair or rational basis for that claim. This was not a normal political cut. It was an inappropriate and partisan reference to the horrific cases of child sexual abuse.

“You tried to clarify your position today, but despite my prompting, you did not apologize for the misleading impression you gave.

“You are a better person than many critics understand, so it’s very sad to disappoint yourself with a cunning accusation against the opposition leader.”

Mirza is one of Johnson’s most loyal allies and has been working with him for over a decade.

Her departure is a new blow to Johnson. Johnson was involved in a political crisis caused by allegations of a series of political parties and other rallies held in Downing Street, including his apartment, in violation of the CCP’s (Chinese Communist Party) virus regulations. Imposed by his own government.

He faces demands for resignation not only from the opposition, but also from 13 of his own backbench Conservatives.

A spokesman said Downing Street was “extremely disappointed” to see Mirza resign and “thank her for her service and contribution to the government.”

Conservative Rep. Andrew Griffiths has been appointed Minister of Policy and Head of the Prime Minister’s Policy Unit.
