Prime Minister Boris Johnson arrived in Glasgow this afternoon to bube from people gathered at the train station, reports say.
After being investigated for taking a private jet from COP26 to London last week, this time the Prime Minister traveled to the host city by train. He wore a black face mask with a Union flag emblem on it.
There were spectators at Glasgow Central Station as the train rolled in, reports say, with bub and cheers from them in the crowds.
Johnson was then escorted by police out of Central Station as he was on his way to the SEC, where the day of transportation-focused climate negotiations takes place.
The Prime Minister’s return to the UN discussions comes after he faced negative headlines for visiting a hospital in the north of England instead of answering questions about a series of sleaze allegations in the Commons.
Jacob Rees-Mogg, the leader of the House, also refused to change a scheduled break to allow lawmakers to question Johnson.
Johnson’s trip comes after his administration tried to tear up the current standard parliamentary system in an attempt to block the suspension of former Secretary of State Owen Paterson.
After the bid failed in the face of opposition from rival parties and public outcry, North Shropshire MP Paterson, who had been found by the Commons Standards Committee to have broken the centuries-old ban on paid lobbying by MPs, chose to leave Westminster after 24. more year.
Meanwhile, Labor has referred Tory MP Sir Geoffrey Cox to the Commons’ standard commissioner after The Times reported that the practicing lawyer used his MP office in September to attend externally to advise the British Virgin Islands on a corruption inquiry launched by the Foreign Office.
Former Secretary of State Sir Geoffrey Cox said he did not believe he had broken any parliamentary rules.
Alongside these stories, the Metropolitan Police are “considering” calls to investigate so-called cash for honor charges associated with Peerage appointments from the Conservative Party.
He wants a police investigation to focus on an Open Democracy and Sunday Times investigation, which among other things claims that nine of the party’s former treasurers have been elevated to the House of Lords since the Conservatives returned to power in 2010.
A spokesman for the Met said: “MPS (Metropolitan Police Service) has received correspondence regarding the latest media reports on the awarding of peerages.
“We are currently considering the content of the correspondence.”
