Boris Johnson hits back at Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby for criticising Rwanda asylum plan
Sky News says Boris Johnson has hit back at Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby over his criticism of sending illegal migrants to Rwanda, claiming the top clergy should be condemning Vladimir Putin instead.
In an upbeat speech to Tory MPs after his partygate apology in the Commons, the prime minister said that while bishops attacked the Rwanda deal in their Easter sermons they had been silent about Putin.
Mr Johnson also hit out at Sir Keir Starmer, accusing him of “coarsening political debate” with his personal attacks on him in the Commons, after a Tory MP claimed the Labour leader had been “whipping up hysteria”.
