UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vehemently denied that Downing Street held a secret Christmas party last December, amid the restrictions caused by COVID-19.
A viral video claimed there was a party on 18 December 2020.
At Prime Minister’s Questions, Mr Johnson said he has asked a Cabinet Secretary to investigate what happened.
But he once again denied there was a party and said no Covid rules were broken.
‘I understand and share the anger up and down the country at seeing No 10 staff seeming to make light of lockdown measures.
“I can understand how infuriating it must be to think that people who have been setting the rules have not been following the rules because I was also furious to see that clip.
‘I apologise unreservedly for the offence that it has caused up and down the country and I apologise for the impression that it gives.
‘But I repeat that I have been repeatedly assured since these allegations emerged that there was no party and that no Covid rules were broken, and that is what I have been repeatedly assured.’
But Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer accused the prime minister of lying and taking the public ‘for fools’.
A former adviser to Boris, Dominic Cummings also seems to say that Boris was lying.
In a tweet Wednesday, Cummings who was forced to leave Boris last November said a regime change is imminent.
”[The] Fish rots from the head. #Regimechange,” he tweeted.
