Labour City of Lincoln Council leader responded via The Lincolnite to Grimsby Conservative MP Lia Nici after she “wholeheartedly” defended the Prime Minister following No 10 lockdown party-gate.

Ric Metcalfe wrote:

“Lia Nici’s verdict on Boris Johnson is that we should remember that he is ‘a renegade’ [“What we’ve got to remember is that he’s a renegade”].

“She obviously thinks this can be made to be seen as a virtuous quality, perhaps she should have checked the meaning of the word first.

“Renegade means: ‘A person who deserts and betrays an organisation, country, or set of principles.’

“How true!”
