Boris Johnson news: Prime Minister gives major announcement from COP26 as Tory sleaze row continues


BORIS Johnson gave a rousing speech to world leaders at the Glasgow COP26 – as he skirted over sleaze allegations by saying rules breakers “must be punished”.

The Prime Minister apparently caught a train to Glasgow this afternoon to speak at the climate change event – where it is thought he intends to shake up world leaders with a rousing speech at the climate conference.

After addressing world leaders, he was grilled by the press on the sleaze row engulfing his Government.

In response to a question from the BBC, he said: “The most important thing is that those who break the rules, they must be investigated and punished”.

He added: “The rules say: You must put your job as an MP FIRST and you must devote yourself to your constituents. You must also not use your position to lobby or make representations on interests outside of your constituents.”
