You might have heard today that Boris Johnson has made a few changes to the Ministerial Code

It's being said he's "Watering it down" in the wake of #PartyGate after being accused of breaching it multiple times

But what is the #MinisterialCode & why is it important?
The Ministerial Code is a code of conduct that applies to MPs in England (there's separate code for Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland)
Written rules appeared in the 1980s because obviously MPs could be trusted completely before that date.

There was some form of code of conduct in place since the 1940s though (I assume because of the war)
