Uk prime Boris Johnson is yet another trouble as it’s look like he maybe getting another fix penalty for attending another party, Mr Johnson has previously admitted attending a party at his office in the Downing Street garden just at the height of the UK’s first national lockdown, although he has maintained he believed it to be a ‘work event’.
John told MPs in January that the Downing Street garden had been used ‘as an extension of the office’ during the Covid crisis ‘because of the role of fresh air in stopping the virus’. Now it look like the Metropolitan Police may not agree with the PM’s explanation of the event -if they decide he did breach Covid rules by attending – then Mr Johnson is set to receive a second FPN.
A leaked email showed how, on 20 May 2020, one of the PM’s own chief aides invited Number 10 officials to the event to enjoy the spring sunshine in the Downing Street garden that evening and pm was there
After email was published the PM subsequently admitted to attending the gathering with ‘groups of staff’ for 25 minutes.
Martin Reynolds, who is PM’s former principal private secretary, resigned from Number 10 earlier this year following the revelation he himself had sent the invite to the ‘BYOB’ event.
Mr Reynolds invited to staff to gather in the Downing Street garden to ‘make the most of the lovely weather’ with ‘some socially distanced drinks’.
His email invite was said to have been sent to more than 100 employees in No10, including the PM’s advisers, speechwriters and door staff.
Mr Johnson’s wife, Carrie Johnson, who has also already received a police fine over the PM’s 56th birthday event, was also among the alleged attendees on 20 May.
Aroundq 40 attendees were said to have gathered in the garden that evening to eat picnic food and drink.
