UK ‘partygate’ report claims PM Johnsons’ future in danger

Date:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will probably stay at his job despite a scathing report about government coronavirus lockdown parties, analysts said on Tuesday. Still, his long-term future is out of hand as police investigations claim rules-breaking. 

After facing criticism about his government’s leadership and judgment failures, PM Johnson apologized for organizing parties at his official residence. At the same time, the rest of the country was ordered to follow strict covid rules.

His position has been hanging in danger due to relentless revelations since late last year, prompting a revolt among his fellow party members.

On Monday (January 31), Sue Gray, the investigating officer of the lockdown party, published her report by presenting potential evidence, including 300 photographs of the party. The investigating officer was also alleged for submitting the report late. 

However, Scotland Yard said it will not reveal the names of any staff who receive fixed penalty notices, raising questions about whether the public will ever know if Johnson was fined.

When Johnson was asked to release the full report and photographs of the party, he replied after completing the investigating process, and the police would present the investigation report soon.

Opposition Labour leader Keir Starmer said partying during lockdown is the mark of shame for the PM of the country.

Anand Menon, European politics and foreign affairs professor at King’s College London, also asserted that Johnson’s job was slightly more in jeopardy than before the report was published.

“I think for a lot of MPs, they probably think he should go but are not sure that now is quite the right time to move. So there’s a very strong sort of hesitation to act,” said Menon.
