A viral video that highlights numerous parliamentary claims by Boris Johnson as misleading has reached a staggering 30 million views on social media.
The lawyer and campaigner behind the two-minute video, Peter Stefanovic, calls out the prime minister for repeatedly lying on areas such as poverty, climate change and the NHS.
“People watching it will draw their own conclusions on whether they believe the prime minister is barefaced lying, completely out of touch with what’s actually happening in the country or just doesn’t care whether what he says to Parliament is accurate or not.
“But all three are equally bad and all three amount to serious breaches of the ministerial code,” Stefanovic told The Big Issue.
“Let’s not forget just how serious breaking the ministerial code is- just recently we saw Scottish Conservatives leader Douglas Ross say Boris Johnson should resign if he was found to have broken the ministerial code,” he added.
30 MILLION VIEWS!!
Working TOGETHER we have sent a powerful message to UK News shows if they won’t hold this Prime Minister to account for his rampant lying in Parliament we will do it ourselves!

In the video, one of Boris Johnson’s many parliamentary claims is that: “absolute poverty and relative poverty has declined under the current government”.
