Prime Minister Boris Johnson was grilled by members of Parliament in the House of Commons over an investigation into parties held at 10 Downing Street during government-issued lockdowns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A report on the investigation released earlier in the day found “failures of leadership and judgment” in Downing Street. During a statement on the investigation, the prime minister repeated his regrets over the events and said he accepts the report and vowed to make changes to operations, but he would not agree to resigning or releasing the full report. Instead, the Conservative leader said the public must wait for a police investigation into the matter. Labour Party Leader Keir Starmer told the prime minister he is taking the public for fools and “hiding” behind the police inquiry. Former Prime Minister Theresa May also scolded Prime Minister Johnson, asking if he believed COVID-19 rules did not apply to him. close
