British education minister Nadhim Zahawi spoke to Sky News on Monday for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over the scandal surrounding the government’s illegal lockdown parties.

 

Prime Minister Zahawi reiterated Prime Minister Johnson’s claim that the Prime Minister thought a garden party at his official residence during the first corona lockdown was a work meeting.

Minister Zahawi says the Prime Minister deeply regrets the celebrations and understands that the British people are angry. The minister does ask people to wait for the result of an internal government investigation. “You can’t convict a man without a thorough investigation,” it sounds. Prime Minister Johnson himself has also been questioned about this.

The prime minister is under fire because of stories about multiple meetings, often in the official residence at 10 Downing Street. For example, two parties are said to have taken place on the night before Prince Philip’s funeral. Johnson’s office apologized to Queen Elizabeth for this on Friday. Weekly drinks were also held for staff of 10 Downing Street during the corona lockdowns. Johnson would have witnessed this regularly. He is said to have encouraged his staff to “let off steam”.

The opposition demands Johnson’s departure. More and more of his Conservative party members openly criticise the prime minister.
