Boris Johnson’s ethics adviser Lord Geidt resigns after Partygate’s schedule

Boris Johnson’s ethics adviser Lord Geidt has resigned dramatically after being debated by MPs earlier this week over whether the Prime Minister broke the ministerial code when he was fined by Partygate.

In a statement, Geidt said: “Unfortunately, I think it is right for me to step down as an independent adviser to the interests of ministers.”

He is the second independent adviser Johnson has lost. Alex Allan resigned after the prime minister ignored his finding that Priti Patel had harassed officials.
