Boris Johnson announcement LIVE: PM apologises during PMQs after brutal grilling but party excuse branded ‘insulting’
BORIS Johnson faced a brutal grilling over Downing Street lockdown parties at Prime Minister’s Questions today.
Ahead of taking questions, Mr Johnson made a statement saying he wanted to apologise for wrongdoings at Number 10, but tried to claim he thought he thought he was at “a work event” when he attended the booze-fuelled party.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer branded the apology “ridiculous” and “insulting”, accused the Prime Minister of “lying through his teeth”, and urged him to resign.
He added that Mr Johnson is “a man without shame” and gave examples of cases where the public were separated from their loved ones during family crises at the height of lockdown while alcohol-fuelled parties were secretly held in Number 10.
Earlier the PM was warned his future was at stake by senior members of his own party, many of whom are furious at his chaotic leadership and his refusal to properly address the scandal.
