Julie Marson MP’s Statement on the Prime Minister’s Resignation

I believe Boris Johnson’s resignation is the right course of action for the country.

Yesterday, I made my views known to the whips, as standards in public life are important and the circumstances of the appointment of the Deputy Chief Whip fell short of those standards.

However, I also felt it was important I stayed on in my role at the Ministry of Justice to serve my country by progressing our critically important work, including the Victims Bill and the Bill of Rights.

This is a sad day. I have supported a Prime Minister who won an 80-seat majority. He is a man who got Brexit done when many said it couldn’t be done. He has shown great leadership during the pandemic and he has been steadfast in the face of Russian aggression in Ukraine.

These are real achievements. 

I wish the Prime Minister and his family the very best. I hope we can now move forward as a party and a government in the best interests of our country.

Utterly pathetic. She didn't even have the decency to send it to papers in her constituency. Even when ministers were resigning around her, she missed her chance to do the right thing and will be forever tainted by her long support of dishonesty.

Wait to see which side the coin lands and then pretend that was always your position. It’s pathetic she has never made an independent decision in her life with out checking with Tory head office first. Still not made any comment on her Twitter and stuff refuses to allow any reply to her comments.

I find it very convenient she's only said it NOW after everyone else has. Spineless. PS: Send your statement to the newspapers in our actual constituency.

Got Brexit done: Ongoing NI instability, cost of 4% GDP per annum, exports down, food shortages, staff shortages, etc. Pandemic: 180,000 dead. The bodies did indeed pile high. Russia: I’m sure any other UK leader would have done the same thing. Nothing particularly noble about calling or visiting when scandal hits! An analysis showed all of BJ’s calls to Zelensky came within 4 hours of a scandal involving him. Julie: You are vacuous and not worthy of office. All the best in the next GE! You won’t be missed.

So a statement to a local news organization the represents a different constituency. She hopes we can now move forward and forget that she actively and enthusiastically supported, to the end, the PM her constituents actively large and who has no integrity, let alone ability. Trust I'm the political system is at an all time low and she doesn't realise she's part of the problem by enabling those infecting the system. Maybe it's just bare ambition to be one of them.ayve she read animal farm as an aspirational book rather than the cautionary tale it is. Only here Napoleon has fallen and Squealer Marson is not far behind

Endorse everything said by other contributors. Read her ringing endorsement of BJ after not supporting the no confidence vote. She might have had a 20,000 majority last time but she could do worse than to start speaking with the recruiters.

I wrote to Ms Marson twice in the course of the last two years about the lack of honesty and standards displayed by Mr Johnson and on both occasions Ms Marson issued standard template answers, and clearly either did not actually read my letter or else was simply trotting out blind supportive guff. I very much hope the constituents of East Herts will remember Ms Marson's unwavering support for the rogue after whom she named her pet dog.

I can't believe the comments on here. I'm am glad our MP supported our Prime Minister. It was the right thing to do. I just wish she'd stayed loyal to the end. The PM in my opinion has done an outstanding job in the face of the dire unforeseen circumstances which we have all faced. I only wish he'd been allowed to finish the job. I will never vote again

I find it very strange that Chrissy Smith would support a lying, lawbreaking PM. It makes me wonder just how much people are prepared to accept from our politicians.

This the same statement Robert Halton made... word for word... can't these Torys think for themselves?
