“And, no I don’t think he’s an immoral person. I don’t think he’s immoral. What he thought he was doing, when he walked into Downing Street garden on the 20th of May 2020, was he thought he was going to say thank you to people, mostly civil servants, who had been working their socks off for months and months trying to keep us safe.”

Philp concluded his comments: “No I don’t think he’s immoral.”
