Home Secretary Priti Patel – whose job it is to uphold the law – says we should forgive rule breakers if they said sorry.

And with that in mind pick up your free 'I may be a wrong 'un but it's OK because I've said soz' blue rosette in the Daily Star today.

In fact, Brits who made extreme sacrifices during strict lockdowns should “respect” Boris ‘Bozo’ Johnson for his lame-duck apology over his Partygate law-breaking, it was remarkably claimed last night.

Home Secretary Patel, who previously demanded neighbours dob on one another for flouting Covid laws, insisted the public admire the PM’s actions.

She told reporters in Rwanda: “The prime minister has given, actually, a very thorough and fulsome apology, and he should be respected for that.”

It came as Bozo’s team were in overdrive last night trying to squash swelling discontent after more Tories quit or demanded the PM resign.

Justice minister Lord David Wolfson became the first Conservative to walk over law-breaking parties at Number 10.

He slammed the “official response” to “repeated rule-breaking”.

The peer said he had no option but to quit considering “my ministerial and professional obligations to support and uphold the rule of law”.

Johnson and his ‘chancer’ Chancellor Rishi Sunak were fined this week.

Bozo is set to receive six fines for illegal gatherings held while the rest of the country were living under strict lockdown laws and often making heartbreaking sacrifices to keep fellow Brits safe.

Tory MP Tobias Ellwood demanded the PM quit yesterday and said war in Ukraine is no reason to delay such a move.

He was among dozens who submitted no confidence letters earlier this year.

The chair of the Commons Defence Committee said it was his “consistent” view that Bozo should “step back” to give the Tories the best chance at the next election.

He added: “There’s not going to be a lull in the fighting, no pause just around the corner, for us to take stock of domestic matters.

“Every month, every year, European security is going to deteriorate well beyond Ukraine, and history anyway shows that we can and do replace leaders in times of crisis.”

Former cabinet minister Karen Bradley also called for the PM’s head.

She said: ”My constituents know that I have been clear that those that make the rules must not break them, whether intentionally or otherwise.”

But the PM dodged questions about the calls to go at a press conference in Lydd, Kent, where he was announcing his Channel refugees plan.

He said people would have to wait until the House of Commons returned from its Easter break to hear his view.

Bozo said: “I’ll be saying more when I update parliament, as you can imagine, next week.

“You’ll probably have to wait until then for me to say more on that.”

Meanwhile Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens took a pop at Bozo while appearing on the BBC’s The One Show.

He made the quip when asked to describe his new series Gaslit starring Julia Roberts.

“Dan then replied: “What you’ve got is a criminal for a leader who is wrapped in a messy war, embroiled in a stupid scandal and surrounded by ambitious idiots and really should resign… I’m sorry that’s the intro to Boris Johnson.”

Host Alex Jones looked shocked by the remark as gasps were heard in the audience.
