Boris Johnson avoids David Cameron resignation question

The Mayor of London called a press conference to talk about the resignation of John Yates, the Met Police Assistant Commissioner, when he was asked whether the Prime Minister should resign over his appointment of the former editor of the News of the World.

Johnson said: “I’m not here to discuss government appointments. Those questions you must address to government.

“I don’t think there’s a very clear read across [from Sir Paul Stephenson hiring Neil Wallis to Mr Cameron hiring Andy Coulson].

“This is a matter you must address to No 10 Downing Street.”

  1. I do not understand what Dave has done wrong .
    He hired a guy to do a job and he did it well ahe was being harrassed and left and now is being investigated in he hacking debacle
    Dave had been reassured by coulson that he was not involved and took his word.
    Now they are saying he knew but knew what?
    where is the evidence? Not hearsay.
    It was my understanding that you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
    If he is found guilty then he will have to face the full force of the law.
    So what has Dave done wrong I ask again.
    Give a friend a second chance???

  2. The charge is “inaction in the face of the enemy”
    William Randolph Murdoch should have been reminded of his manners a long time ago.
