The British Prime Minister is criticized for a party at the time of the Corona closure

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was criticized today, Tuesday, after it emerged that his private secretary had invited 100 people to a party in the Downing Street garden during the first shutdown due to the Corona virus pandemic.

Johnson, who won a landslide victory in the 2019 election, has come under intense scrutiny over the past month after a video emerged showing his staff laughing and joking about the Christmas party in 2020 which was at closing time.

The revelation of a series of parties held at the Cabinet Office at the time of the closure sparked public outrage and prompted Keir Starmer, the leader of the opposition Labor Party, to say that Johnson lacked the moral authority to lead the country.

ITV reported that Johnson and his partner Carrie were in attendance at a party that also included 40 staff members on May 20, 2020, after his private secretary, Marin Reynolds, emailed invitations to the party.

The party was held at a time when schools were closed, as were restaurants and bars, with strict restrictions on social gatherings.
The restrictions were so severe that the police chased people for partying and set up roadblocks.

Johnson’s office declined to comment on the ITV report.
