A new survey has found that the prime minister’s approval ratings among Tory activists have plummeted since he tried to dodge self-isolation last month.

The Conservative Home website found that Boris Johnson’s rating had fallen by more than 35 points – from 39.2 per cent to just 3.4 persent. His approval rating is now among the five lowest in cabinet, only communities secretary Robert Jenrick, education secretary Gavin Williamson, and Conservative Party co-chairman Amanda Milling are rated below the prime minister.

Intussen, Arbeid have urged Conservatives to “come clean” about the level of access granted to financial backers as part of an “advisory group”.

In a letter, Anneliese Dodds, the chair of the Labour party called on the Tories to publish a list of ministers who met party donors through the secretive club.

Sy het gese: “The Conservative Party needs to come clean on what access this group had, what they used that access to lobby for, and why it appears that there is one rule for high-ranking Conservatives and another rule for everyone else.”

She added that there were “serious questions” the Tories must answer about their fundraising techniques.

Labour urge Tories to ‘come clean’ about the level of access granted to financial backers

Labour has urged the Conservatives to “come clean” about the level of access financial backers received to ministers including Boris Johnson.

Anneliese Dodds, the chair of the Labour party called on Conservatives to publish a list of ministers who met with party donors through a secretive “advisory board” following an article published in the Financial Times that reported that the board was developed to connect Tory supporters with senior government figures.

In a letter to Conservative Party co-chairman Amanda Milling, Ms Dodds said: “It is in the public interest for you to clarify the workings of this so-called ‘advisory board’ and Mr Elliot’s role in offering a powerful exclusive access to the Prime Minister and the Chancellor – purely because of their status as party donors.

“The Conservative Party needs to come clean on what access this group had, what they used that access to lobby for, and why it appears that there is one rule for high-ranking Conservatives and another rule for everyone else.”

She added that there were “serious questions” the Tories must answer about their fundraising techniques.
