suspension points
It is now time to oust Boris Johnson. He is unfit to hold position of Prime Minister. Write to your MP demanding a vote of No Confidence be mentioned immediately. Meanwhile, does anyone know if a petition had already been started to sign and share? Johnson’s actions are outrageous and must not be allowed to take place in a democracy.
