UK. A birthday party in full confinement: Boris Johnson pinned again

One more controversy for Boris Johnson. Already criticized for parties in Downing Street, the British Prime Minister is pinned for a birthday party in full confinement!

According to the ITV television channel, Boris Johnson participated in this party organized by his wife Carrie on June 19, 2020 in the afternoon, during the first confinement, when such gatherings were then prohibited. Up to 30 people are said to have attended, including interior designer Lulu Lytle, who was tasked with carrying out the costly renovation of Boris Johnson’s controversially funded Downing Street apartment.

According to a Downing Street spokeswoman, Boris Johnson would have participated “less than ten minutes” in this gathering of his collaborators. ITV news indicates that friends of the Johnson family would have taken part in another event organized on the evening of June 19 on the floor of the residence of the Prime Minister, which his services have denied. “It is totally false. In accordance with the rules at the time, the Prime Minister welcomed a small number of his family outside that evening,’ Downing Street said.

Towards a resignation of Boris Johnson?

Implicated for a series of parties in Downing Street in full confinement, Boris Johnson, 57, is suffering his worst crisis since his triumphant accession to power in the summer of 2019. The anger aroused by these parties, which took place at the time where the population was asked to drastically reduce their interactions, caused a drop in its popularity in the opinion polls.

The head of government has so far escaped a vote of no confidence from his conservative camp and refers to the conclusions of the internal investigation carried out by senior civil servant Sue Gray, which should be published soon. Former influential adviser to Boris Johnson, Dominic Cummings refused to be interviewed as part of this investigation, saying that if he accepted, “the Prime Minister would invent absurd stories”. He preferred to testify in writing.

Dominic Cummings, who has regularly launched attacks on his former leader since his departure at the end of 2020 amid infighting, has warned that “other damaging stories” will emerge if the prime minister does not step down.
