The UK’s solicitor general is coming under fresh pressure to resign over Boris Johnson’s handling of party gate.

Alex Chalk, the MP for the marginal seat of Cheltenham, is being targeted by the Liberal Democrats. Leader Ed Davey will travel to the constituency Friday, to say those who stand by “a law-breaking and lying Prime Minister are guilty by association.”

Davey, whose party has scooped up two Tory seats in recent months thanks to by-elections in Chesham & Amersham and North Somerset, will say: “It is extraordinary that a minister responsible for giving legal advice to the government is prepared to still support Boris Johnson. Alex Chalk clearly thinks its fine for a law-maker to be a law-breaker.”
