Caller Brendan from Hartlepool did not hold back as he insisted Boris Johnson is “not the Tory I voted for”. The disappointed caller made it clear that he does not care about allegations of boozy Tory MP parties at Downing Street but had concerns about the costs of the Conservative Party’s green agenda. He told talkRADIO: “And this green agenda, I mean can you afford well, you probably could afford a £60K electric car.
“Most people can’t afford an electric car.”
Host Jeremy Kyle said: “I don’t want an electric car.”
Caller Brendan said: “I know … what I’m saying is how would we power then unless we get more nuclear power stations.
“Because the wind doesn’t work. He’s got to go for those reasons, he’s not a Tory.

“I have been a Tory voter all my life, and it was brilliant when Hartlepool elected a Tory MP for the first time in my lifetime.
“But unfortunately Boris is not the Tory I voted for. I don’t know whether it’s due to Carrie and her influences on him.
“He’s got to go because… Not because of the party, and nobody is bothered about them.
“Everyone was breaking the law with the parties, there will be Labour people who have done it, but they haven’t been caught.”

Mr Kyle said: “Very interesting.”
Caller Brendan added: “So I’ve got no, no question. I was talking to a guy yesterday, funnily enough, he said I couldn’t go see my mum in a care home and he said I don’t blame Boris and the Downing street people for having parties.”
Unlike caller Brendan who does not care about alleged illegal Tory parties in Downing Street, other Tories have called for the resignation over the alleged rule breaks.
One such MP is Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross who attempted to hold Mr Johnson to account following PMQs on Wednesday after the Prime Minister issued an apology.

Mr Ross said: “I said, yesterday, if the Prime Minister attended this gathering, event in Downing Street on May 20, 2020, he could not continue as Prime Minister so, regretfully, I have to say his position is no longer tenable.
“There was one simple question to answer yesterday, indeed, from Monday night when we saw this invitation which was to more than 100 people asking them to join others in the Downing Street garden and bring their own booze.
“If the Prime Minister was there, and he accepted today that he was, then I felt he could not continue.
“What we also heard from the Prime Minister today was an apology and he said with hindsight he would have done things differently, which for me is an acceptance from the Prime Minister that it was wrong and therefore, I don’t want to be in this position, but I am in this position now, where I don’t think he can continue as leader of the Conservatives.”
