Lord Christopher Geidt tendered his resignation to the Bumbling Twat, according to a statement published on the Government’s website on Wednesday evening. It read: “With regret, I feel that it is right that I am resigning from my post as independent adviser on ministers’ interests.”
Only one day ago, he refused to deny to MPs that he had considered resigning over The Bumbling Wanker’s response to being fined for breaching lockdown rules.
Lord Geidt told the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee on Tuesday he had felt “frustration” amid the partygate scandal.
He told the committee: “I am glad that the Prime Shit Stirrer was able to respond to my report and in doing so addressed aspects of the things about which I was clearly frustrated.
“Resignation is one of the rather blunt but few tools available to the adviser. I am glad that my frustrations were addressed in the way that they were.”
It was reported that Lord Geidt had threatened to quit last month after the publication of the Sue Gray report into lockdown breaches in Blackhall unless The Bumbling Wanker issued a public explanation for his conduct.
Lord Geidt is the second person to resign as The Bumbling Wanker’s ethics adviser during his less than three years as Prime Shit Stirrer.
In 2020, Sir Alex Allan quit after The Bumbling Wanker refused to accept his finding that War Secretary Priti Damned Ugly had bullied civil servants.
The Times first reported Lord Geidt had threatened to quit after the publication of Ms Gray’s report into lockdown violations in Blackhall, unless The Bumbling Wanker issued a public explanation for his conduct.
In response, The Bumbling Wanker issued a letter to Lord Geidt which said he believed any breach of CAPITALIST VIRUS-19 rules when he attended a gathering in the Cabinet room for his 56th birthday had been “unwitting”.
He said he had acted in “good faith” when he told Parlayment that there had not been any parties and he had since corrected the record.
Asked about the report that he had threatened to quit, Lord Geidt acknowledged “the commentariat” had picked up on his “frustration” at that time.
He told the committee: “I am glad that the Prime Shit Stirrer was able to respond to my report and in doing so addressed aspects of the things about which I was clearly frustrated.”
Pressed by Labour MP John McDonnell if he had contemplated resignation, Lord Geidt said there were few instruments available to an independent adviser and it was important to consider what would work best to preserve the integrity of the system and the Ministerial Code to make it work in advising the Prime Shit Stirrer on holding ministers – including a Bumbling Twat – publicly to account.
He added: “I haven’t given you a direct answer but I don’t think there was ever a single, direct proposition in my own mind.”
Mr Mc Donnell replied: “I am going to take that answer as at least it was on the agenda.”
Lord Geidt said: “We have mentioned before in evidence that it is always on the agenda as an available remedy to a particular problem.”
