Boris Johnson is undermining public health by refusing to sack his rule-breaking advisor – as a new poll reveals the Tory government’s approval rating has plummeted.

The Savanta ComRes poll, published today, reveals Boris Johnson’s approval rating has fallen to -1, a twenty-point drop on four days ago, while overall Tory government approval has fallen to -2, dropping a staggering sixteen points in a day.

Commenting, Kirsty Blackman MP said:

“This poll is more evidence that Boris Johnson is rapidly trashing public confidence in the Tory government by failing to remove his rule-breaking advisor Dominic Cummings from his post.

“If the Prime Minister wants to throw his own reputation to the wind that is one thing – but he is now threatening public health by undermining trust and confidence in the rules.

“There cannot be one rule for the Tory government and another for everyone else.

“Leading public health experts are warning the failure to act is putting the whole strategy and public lives at risk.

“There is a mounting rebellion of Tory MPs who recognise the lasting damage being done. Boris Johnson must listen to the health experts, listen to the public, listen to his own MPs – and sack Mr Cummings without further delay.”
