His allegations came as Communities debated a motion to launch a parliamentary inquiry into whether Mr Johnson lied to lawmakers during a coronavirus blockade of a Downing Party party.
Sir Sir Lindsay Hoyle advised lawmakers to soften their language during the debate, or he acknowledged that they could “question” the veracity of Mr Johnson’s comments in the House of Representatives, given Labor’s motion to set a deadline.
But he added. “It is not for the truth of the Prime Minister or any other honorable or legally respected member to be disputed more generally.
“Welfare, moderation in the parliamentary language must be maintained.”
Mr Blackford was later dismissed as accusing the prime minister of lying, directly addressing concerns about partygate’s statements.
Labeling an MP a liar in the House is usually considered extra-parliamentary language, or it is allowed when the House is considering a specific motion to investigate a member’s conduct.
The House of Representatives was in error, and so was the public, and we all deliberately went astray. Not only parties were held, not only the law was violated, the Prime Minister was at the very parties, to which he directly denied that they had taken place.
Mr Blackford, who had previously been ousted from the House for failing to file a lawsuit against Johnson, said in a statement to Thor MPs: to act and remove him from office. “
Earlier in his speech he said: “At the heart of this scandal is something that needs to be said, something that needs to be heard, that’s the reason we all need to act.
“And this is the reason. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is a liar. I’m not saying it seriously, I’re not saying it carelessly.
“I sincerely believe that it is true that we use that word slowly, but I also think it is true that we should never be slow to say it, to say it when it is so obviously true.”
Mr. Blackford added: “Last December, the Prime Minister came to this palace and denied that there were 10 parties on Downing Street during the long blockade of Covid.
“Usually, he used to hide behind his staff saying that. He told us that he had been firmly assured that no party had taken place, that no rules had been broken.
“Every member of this parliament has witnessed it. The public saw with its own eyes that it happened. And it is a shame that it is still in the protocol of this chamber.
But now we know the truth, that truth does not contain “if”, “but” և “maybe”. The House of Representatives was in error, and so was the public, and we all deliberately went astray.
“Not only parties were held, not only the law was violated, the Prime Minister was at the same parties, which he directly denied that they took place.
“The truth is clear, is this? he lied so as not to be caught, և when he was caught, he lied again. There is no other way to describe it. There is no other word for it. “
On Wednesday, SNP MP Richard Thomson (Gordon) was told to withdraw his claim that Mr Johnson was “the Prime Minister of Pinocchio”.
Speaking earlier in the day on business matters, SNP Commons CEO Pete Wishart said of Mr Johnson: “We can not even hint at the fictional image of Disney, which is associated with the word that the public uses most about itself. “They probably think we’re just crazy.”
