Boris could be banned from parliamentary estate over ‘kangeroo court’ attack

Former prime minister Boris Johnson quits as MP

Boris Johnson could be barred from the parliamentary estate after branding the Commons into Partygate a “kangaroo court”.

The former PM launched a scathing attack on the Privileges Committee’s probe when he stepped down as an MP last Friday.

The cross-party group of MPs is set to meet this afternoon to conclude their inquiry into whether he misled Parliament over No 10 lockdown parties.

The probe is thought to have ruled that Mr Johnson lied to Parliament when he told MPs that Covid rules were followed in Downing Street.

The committee is said to be considering fresh sanctions against the ex-prime minister which could include withholding the pass given to most former MPs allowing them continued access to the parliamentary estate.

Former Commons speaker John Bercow was banned last year from being permitted a pass after being found guilty of bullying by Westminster’s Independent Expert Panel.
