Neither Prime Minister Boris Johnson or Chancellor Rishi Sunak show signs of resigning, despite both receiving a fine for lockdown rule breaking on April 12.  

It was revealed yesterday that both Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak would be issued with a fixed penalty notice for attending the Prime Minister's birthday party at 10 Downing Street in June 2020, at the height of strictest lockdown measures in England.

Carrie Johnson, Boris Johnson's wife, was also fined. 

This is how MPs in Buckinghamshire reacted to the news after Boris Johnson became the first ever sitting Prime Minister to be disciplined for law breaking.

Beaconsfield’s Conservative MP Joy Morrissey took on Twitter to express her unwavering support for the prime minister.

She said: “The PM has taken full responsibility and apologised for what happened in No 10, as colleagues took 9 minutes out of a busy day to wish him a happy birthday.

"I am looking forward to helping Boris Johnson deliver on the priorities of the British people." 

Her tweet had attracted more than 5,000 comments in less than 24 hours.

Wycombe MP Steve Baker hasn’t made a direct comment on social media, but his Twitter account has been busy.

He kept retweeting comments from fellow conservative MPs and ministers, where most high-ranking Conservatives echo their backing for the Prime Minister.

He also re-tweeted a BBC News video clip showing Boris Johnson apologising.

Bucks only Liberal Democrat MP, Sarah Green representing Chesham and Amersham, tweet called for Mr Johnson to go.

She said: “People across our country made devastating sacrifices to follow the laws set by Downing St. Meanwhile, those who set them, broke them.

“If the Prime Minister has any respect for his office or for the British public, he will go and go now.”

Rob Butler, the Conservative MP for Aylesbury, has stayed quiet on Twitter on the issue, and likewise has Greg Smith, the Buckingham MP.

Also quiet on the question of resignation were Ben Everitt, Conservative MP for Milton Keynes North and Iain Stewart MP for Milton Keynes South.
