Dawn Butler, in her speech in the British Parliament’s House of Commons, criticized Johnson’s words about the “breaking of the link between the epidemic and serious illness and death”, stating that this is a very dangerous statement during the new type of coronavirus (Kovid-19) epidemic.
Noting that Johnson did not tell the truth to the parliament and that he lied to the public and the lawmakers many times, Butler said he was disappointed by this situation.
Thereupon, Deputy Speaker of the House Eleanor Laing, who led the discussion in the parliament, asked Butler, whom she interrupted, to correct the statements about Prime Minister Johnson.
Butler, addressing the deputy speaker, said, “What would you prefer? A weakened leg or a severed leg? You know, the Prime Minister has lied to parliament many times. It’s funny how the one who tells the liar, not the liar, is in trouble here.” used the phrases.
“Someone needs to tell the truth in parliament.” Butler, who did not correct the accusation of “lying” against the Prime Minister by giving his statement, was removed from the session of the House of Commons by the deputy speaker.
