Ex-British PM calls actions of Johnson’s government «politically corrupt»

LONDON (Reuters) -Former British Prime Minister John Major on Saturday attacked fellow Conservative Boris Johnson’s handling of a corruption row, saying the government’s behaviour was arrogant, broke the law and was «politically corrupt». The former premier, whose own government was accused of sleaze, said he would face a dilemma over whether to vote for Johnson at the next election. «I think the way the government handled that was shameful, wrong and unworthy of this, or indeed any government,» he said in a BBC interview.
