Met Police will NOT investigate Downing Street lockdown parties – unless inquiry finds criminal behaviour
THE Metropolitan Police will NOT investigate any of the Downing Street parties unless and until the Sue Gray inquiry finds evidence of criminality.
Boris Johnson yesterday apologised in Parliament for attending an event at No10 during lockdown but claimed it was a work event.Boris Johnson apologised in Parliament for attending the Downing Street bash[/caption] Met Police said they won’t investigate until after the enquiry[/caption]
The Prime Minister said he went into the sunshine to “thank groups of staff before going back into my office 25 minutes later to continue working. I believed implicitly that this was a work event.”
But he grovelled: “With hindsight, I should have sent everyone back inside and found some other way to thank them.
“I should have recognised that even if it did fall within guidance, there would be millions of people who would simply not see it that way”.
The furore has triggered an onslaught from all sides – including enraged Tories who are now sharpening their knives after a string of flouting accusations.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer branded his Tory foe “pathetic” and demanded he resign.
