Johnson’s account of Lebedev meeting cannot be trusted

Responding to confirmation that Boris Johnson met ex-KGB agent Alexander Lebedev at the height of the Salisbury poisoning scandal and the Prime Minister's claim that as far as he was aware, the two men did not discuss government business, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton said: 

“The Prime Minister already had serious questions to answer over his decision to put Evgeny Lebedev in the Lords. Now it has turned out that he was partying with Mr Lebedev’s ex-KGB agent father too. 

"Boris Johnson can't be trusted to tell the truth about what he had for breakfast, never mind what he said or did at a party. It's astonishing that Douglas Ross, Liz Truss and Rishi Sunak backed him for so long.

“The cosy relationship between Putin’s oligarchs and the Conservative political elite has been the dirty secret of the British establishment for far too long. It must end now.”
