LONDON – British Conservative Party lawmaker Steve Baker on Thursday said that Prime Minister Boris Johnson should have resigned after being fined for breaking COVID-19 lockdown rules in his offices.

“I have to say I’m sorry, but for not obeying the letter and spirit (of the law) – and I think we have heard that the Prime Minister did know what the letter was – the Prime Minister now should be long gone,” Baker, a member of Johnson’s Conservatives, told parliament.

“The prime minister should just know that the gig’s up.”
