MPs apparently had in mind the words of Liberal Democrat Deputy Speaker Daisy Cooper, who said: “Rishi Sunak showed the same disregard for the rules as Boris Johnson, and now becomes the second prime minister to be fined by police.” .
Cooper also believes that “Tory politicians are simply taking the British for fools and continue to act as if one rule is for them and another for everyone else.”
The prime minister’s fine, Cooper also said, “is a reminder that the Tories deserve payback in the end.”
Be that as it may, this crime cannot be considered a reason for Sunak’s resignation, Dominic Raab, the country’s justice minister and deputy prime minister, told the television channel. As a mitigating circumstance, Raab urged Sunak to “quickly admit his guilt, apologize and pay a fine.”
Earlier, Sky News published a video recorded by the British Prime Minister himself and in which he announces an increase in investment in the region’s economy. The video shows that the prime minister, who is in the back seat of the car, is not wearing his seatbelt. In the UK, such an offense faces a fine of £100 to £500.
