Will the Christmas party scandal fall on Boris Johnson?

Hence, it is about British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and a large part of the discussion has recently touched upon the reveal of the Christmas party at the Prime Minister’s residence, 10 Downing Street. What happened?

– Yes, this was such a revelation as the British Daily Mirror. It must have been last year, when there was a lockdown here in the UK that Christmas parties and other social gatherings were banned for everyone in England. At that time, a potentially illegal Christmas party was held at 10 Downing Street, which is the Prime Minister’s residence and above all a workplace for those who work with the Prime Minister. It turns out to be huge news, and you have to understand the context: last year the government essentially canceled Christmas here in England, and this very thing with a Christmas party at work and in groups of friends is a very important tradition. When it turned out that one of the rules applied to those who worked near the prime minister, and another to ordinary people, many were upset. This is news that continues to haunt Boris Johnson, says Catherine Marsal at Studio DN.

Following the revelations, a video was leaked in which people from the Prime Minister’s staff, including Johnson’s press secretary Allegra Stratton, joked about an alleged 10 Downing Street party during a fake press conference.
How did this revelation arrive, and why did it cause such outrage?

– This goes back in part to a period in Britain where people were not allowed to see their loved ones, where people died alone without being allowed to see their families, and where the government requested it. You ask a lot of people if I say ‘Cancel Christmas, stay home’. And then this clip was leaked where government officials and political officials joke this way about the Christmas party. Above all, Johnson denied that such a party had taken place, and if it had, it would not have been a party. This clip seems to show that there may have been a party, so it became another kind of proof that, many thought, Boris Johnson slipped again from the truth, something he usually receives a lot of criticism for.
