A sleaze watchdog has accused Boris Johnson’s Government of being at least “careless” over its approach to maintaining proper standards. Lord Evans of Weardale, chairman of the Committee on Standards in Public Life, highlighted “partygate” – the allegations around lockdown-busting gatherings in Downing Street and Whitehall – as one of the rows causing concern. The former MI5 chief said the public expects MPs and officials to be “living up to the standards that they profess to live up to”.
