At least seven times, seven, he has denied Boris Johnson who had violated the Rules of the Covid in Downing Street. The British media have revealed, however, that there could be up to nine "parties" during the confines in which the restrictions were breached. The most flagrant, held on May 20, 2020 in full sun and under the express invitation of the Personal Secretary of Johnson, Martin Reynolds: "Bring your own bottle!"
Several witnesses say that the 'Premier' and his wife Carrie attended that party among more than 30 guests, when the restrictions in force in full description allowed only the meetings of two people from different homes, to open sky and maintaining the "distance Social "Two meters.
To the question about whether or not he was at that party, Johnson threw this time a few overtholes and referred to the internal research on the "Partygate" that runs the senior Sue Gany Sue Gray. The evasive of him and the denials of him to date, in contrast to the growing evidence, caused on Monday an urgent question of the Labor Party in Parliament, to which Johnson "replied" with one of the already habitual seedlings of him.
"His absence says it all," said the number two Labor, Angela Rayner. "Despite not having any purchase today, the prime minister has decided not to give the face. Boris Johnson has once again demonstrated the contempt of him towards the British."
The criticism of Johnson's elusive attitude towards the "Partygate" scandal resounded within the Conservative Party, where his leadership is more questioned. "It is understandable that people are outraged by the allegations," he himself recognized Edward Argar Assistant Secretary, not before emphasizing that he did not attend any party and that he was stuck at Zoom at those dates.
Johnson's personal secretary, Martin Reynold, is on the rope Since the ITV chain revealed on Monday the content of his email aimed at 100 guests, encouraging "taking advantage of the good weather" and "bring your own bottle" to the party Organized on May 20, 2020 in Downing Street (five days after the famous meeting with "cheese and wine" in the garden in which Johnson and Carrie were also located).
The filtration of a video, also in the ITV, in which the communication adviser of Johnson Allegra Stratton mocked the restrictions, caused his fulminating resignation and gave rise to the scandal of the "Partygate", which threatens to pass the invoice to Johnson in The boot of the new year.
Since last December 1, the first time he assured in Parliament that in Downing Street "they were fulfilled with all the rules of the Covid," the shadow of suspicion chases the 'Premier', which reiterated that same message in interviews with Sky News and the BBC.
On December 8, after the resignation of Allegra Stratton, he publicly asked for forgiveness for the behavior of his staff, but stressed again that the restrictions were not violated and that there was no "party" in the 'Premiere' mansion. That same day, at the press conference, he assured that the evidence points to the rules, but there will be "sanctions" if the opposite is demonstrated.
On December 13, in Sky News, he said textually: "Without a doubt, I did not violate the rules." A week later, after the publication at The Guardian of the photo where it was seen next to Carrie and another thirteen people in the garden of Downing Street, he came to declare: "That people were at work and talking about work, it is All I can say ".
The last collets of the "Partygate" have returned to leave Boris Johnson at a moment of great political weakness after the rebellion of a hundred deputies "Tories" against the passport Covid, plus the resignation as Brexit Minister of his so far ally David Frost. In an interview with The Mail on Sunday, Frost said that the 'Premier' has distanced itself from the "Conservative Creed" and warned him that a 'roller' will be needed to recover the support of the militants and voters.Updated Date: 11 January 2022, 10:51
