Johnson insisted the rules would not be “technically broken”, but acknowledged the country’s anger.
e May holiday is only the latest violations Covid-19 restrictions That accused the Johnson administration. In recent days, another controversy has erupted around the Christmas party. Complicating the position of the Prime Minister is the fact that on May 20, 2020, the same day of the gathering in the park, the government held a press conference to remind citizens that they cannot meet more than one person outside their families.
Under Secretary Michael Ellis Ellis stressed that even the event that was the focus of the recent controversy would end up under the lens of an independent investigation into parties organized in institutional settings during periods when lockdowns were in place. At the same time Scotland Yard is investigating. Ellis tried hard to defend the prime minister’s integrity and goodwill from the courtroom where opposition MPs clearly represented the majority and also stood out.
