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.”
