Boris Johnson may be fighting for his future as an MP

Boris Johnson is leaving the building – almost – with his time in office surrounded by controversy to the end.

Labour has accused him of trying to intimidate the committee investigating whether he misled parliament over Partygate.

A senior QC commissioned by the government to look into the legal process behind the committee’s work has described the investigation as “flawed and unfair”.

But Lord Pannick’s opinion won’t stop their inquiry from going ahead.
