Boris Johnson receives Report on Downing Street parties
After attempts to manipulate poorer parts of the UK to keep Johnson in power, media reports say that Boris Johnson has been "privately reassured" that he will not be driven out of office.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has received an expected internal report into a series of parties allegedly hosted at his official house in Downing Street during the COVID-19 lockdown between 2020 and 2021.
"We can confirm that Sue Gray has provided an update on her investigations to the prime minister”, read a version of the statement from a Cabinet Office spokesperson.
It is worth mentioning that the report's designation as an "update" implies that Gray does not consider it to be the final edition.
The findings of senior civil servant Sue Gray are anticipated to be made public within hours, according to local media reports.
The British PM is once again facing calls to resign in the wake of the "partygate" incident.
He has been under fire, jeopardizing his political future as allegations mount against the Conservative premier who broke the rules his government had put in place.
According to The Mirror, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been "privately reassured" that he will not be driven out of office by his legislators after the release of senior civil servant Sue Gray's report on the alleged No 10 parties.
A tipsy Downing Street staffer boasted to police guarding No 10 about breaking coronavirus lockdown restrictions, telling them: "We're the only ones allowed to party”, according to The Mirror.
Following Gray's dossier of evidence, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said last week that the Met had begun its own criminal investigation into eight Downing Street parties.
Tories accused of 'leveling' to save Boris
Earlier, Johnson's government has been accused of "leveling" to save his premiership.
In the wake of the lockdown party scandal that made headlines the past week, as well as his confession, Johnson is facing arguably the biggest political crisis of his Tory party’s leadership.
Debates have erupted after Michael Gove's Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities issued a press statement — ahead of the publishing of a leveling up white paper this week – stating that 20 towns and cities will benefit from a "new £1.5bn brownfield fund."
The British government has used intimidation and attempted to blackmail lawmakers suspected of wanting Prime Minister Boris Johnson out of power, a senior Conservative lawmaker claimed Thursday.
This comes as Johnson faces calls to step down in light of various scandals in Downing Street, including his attendance at a party in his office during a COVID-19 lockdown in Britain
