Boris Johnson says Brexit ‘helped save lives’ as he hits out at partygate critics as ‘out of their minds’


BORIS Johnson has hailed Brexit as a lifesaver while hitting out at partygate critics as “out of their minds”.

In an exclusive interview on TalkTV’s new show Friday Night With Nadine, airing February 3rd, the ex-PM insisted he never “knowingly” attended illegal lockdown parties.

Boris Johnson told Friday Night With Nadine that people who think he lied about partygate are “out of their minds”

And he promised he didn’t try and cover any up either.

BoJo said:  “I hope it’s obvious to everybody, that anybody who thinks I was knowingly going to parties that were breaking lockdown rules in Number 10, and then knowingly covering up parties that were illicit that other people were going to, that’s all strictly for the birds.

“And if anybody thinks like that they’re out of their mind.”

The ex-PM is facing a probe by the Commons Privileges Committee into whether he knowingly lied to MPs about partygate.

Hearings are expected to begin within weeks, with witnesses submitting written and oral evidence.

In a sit down interview with ex-Culture Secretary and staunch ally Nadine Dorries, Boris discussed the partygate storm ahead.

“I’ve got to wait for this thing to conclude,” he said.

“What I would say is that we all thought what we were doing – or certainly, I thought what we were doing – was within the rules.

“And what we certainly thought was that we were working blindingly hard on some massive priorities for the country.”

Away from parties, the ex-PM discussed how Brexit helped to save lives during the pandemic by enabling a speedy vaccine rollout.

“It is literally true that Brexit helped save lives,” Boris said.

“And people’s eyes bulge a bit when you say that, but it happens to be true… I’m proud of that. I’m proud of all the work that those people did.”

Friday Night with Nadine begins February 3rd at 8pm on TalkTV.
