UK PM Borris Johnson accused by ex-aide of lying about lockdown parties

 LONDON:British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been accused of lying by his former aide after his office denied that the PM was warned against allowing a drinking party during the first COVID-19 lockdown in May 2020.

In a new blog published on Monday, Dominic Cummings revealed that Martin Reynolds, Johnson’s principal private secretary (PPS) who arranged the party, had checked with Johnson on whether the party should go ahead, and the PM had agreed that it should.

Cummings wrote that he personally heard Reynolds saying “as long as it’s socially distanced I think it’s OK, I’ll check with the PM if he’s happy for it to go ahead.”

“Not only me, but other eyewitnesses who discussed this at the time, would swear under oath this is what happened,” Cummings wrote in his blog post.

 

 Cummings claimed that he repeatedly told Johnson that the PPS should be replaced as an upgrade to the management, but heard him saying: “He’s MY guy; I don’t want you replacing him with YOUR person.”

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has apologized for attending a drink party in the back garden of 10 Downing Street when the rest of the country was under a strict COVID-19 lockdown.

The development comes on the heels of Johnson’s apology over his participation in the party in the back garden of No. 10 Downing Street when the rest of the country was under a strict COVID-19 lockdown.

However, he claimed that he did not know that the event was a social gathering, in spite of the fact that over a hundred invitations were sent to the staff.

The party on 20 May last year has snowballed into a major controversy for Johnson, with several lawmakers calling for his immediate resignation.
