Boris Johnson did not deny himself the pleasure of having fun at parties during the period of general isolation. The media reported about one of them the other day: in May 2020, more than 40 guests were having fun in the garden of the Prime Minister’s residence.
That period took place against the backdrop of rigid isolation. British residents could not gather more than two people, and even then, it was possible to communicate only at a distance. Meanwhile, at 10 Downing Street, VIP parties were thundering.
The recent disclosure on the Internet of a letter from a high-ranking official, in which he invited about 100 employees to a private party “with their drinks”, caused a sharp outrage from the British Conservative Party and the media. Among those present at the event were Boris Johnson and his future wife Carrie Johnson. In a letter reaching ITV News, it says:
“Hello to all. After an incredibly busy period, we thought it would be nice to take advantage of the wonderful weather and have some social events at Garden # 10 tonight. Please join us from 6pm and bring your own drinks! “
And at the same time and even on the same day, Oliver Dowden, the country’s culture minister, reminded the British at a press conference:
“You can meet with one person who is not a member of your family in a public place outdoors, provided that you are at least two meters apart.”
British police are investigating the notorious offense. And the media come out with loud headlines:
“Enough, Boris! You have to stop throwing spectacular parties now. ”(Express). “Boris is awesome in new party revelations” (The Mail).
