    PM's attempt to apologise is shameful - Lib Dem leader

    Lib Dem leader Ed Davey describes the prime minister's "attempt to apologise" as "shameful".

    He asks why the only person to resign over the issue so far is Allegra Stratton - a senior government spokeswoman who stepped down after a video showed her joking about No 10 staff holding a lockdown Christmas Party at Downing Street.

    By contrast, Davey points out that Boris Johnson - "who sanctioned and attended at least one party in No 10" - remains in post.

    "Will he accept that the party is over and decide to resign?" he asks.

    The prime minister again asks people to wait and see what the ongoing inquiry says.

    "Un-Conservative" and "perhaps politically corrupt". "I think the way the government handled that was shameful, wrong and unworthy of this or indeed any government. It also had the effect of trashing the reputation of parliament."These are the words of Conservative ex-Prime Minister talking yesterday on Radio 4 after a week in which Boris Johnson shamelessly tried to do away with rules stopping corruption and mis-behaviour amongst MPs, only to change his mind when confronted by opposition to his plans to re-write the rules by appointing a Tory dominated review committee.

    We all remember seeing the horrific scenes of the burning tower at Grenfell on the news over four years ago.

    The tragic loss of 72 lives was a dark moment for our country and the cladding scandal that emerged emboldened me to stand up for the rights of all those living in unsafe buildings.

    That event also was a lightning rod for the wider public and put a sharp focus on the quality of housing that many people live in - particularly in more densely populated urban areas.
