Former Tory MP Edwina Currie argued that despite the scandal surrounding former Health Secretary Matt Hancock, politicians should not be held to “sainthood” standards. While speaking on Good Morning Britain, Susanna Reid argued that not breaking the Covid measures was not holding to MPs to too high a standard. Ms Currie also argued that Boris Johnson and his Government, despite their faults had much success during the pandemic, regarding the vaccine rollout.
Ms Curriet argued former Prime Minister Theresa May was more “saint-like” than Boris Johnson and yet achieved nothing in her time as Tory leader.
Ms Currie said: “What I am saying is that in the end if you have saints in office you are not going to get anywhere.
“We had a very saintly lady, bless her, in Theresa May, she achieved absolutely nothing.
“I am much more interested in getting things done.
“This Government and Boris Johnson, for all their faults, have got things done.”
Mr Lewis interrupted to question whether Ms Currie was arguing that ethics don’t matter as long as you get results.
