U.K. Prime Minister Apologizes For His Leaked Video


Boris Johnson apologizes after video shows his employees laughing and joking about a party in Downing Street. The video was filmed during a Christmas lockdown last year, when such festivities were banned. No laws were breached, the prime minister's office has insisted for more than a week.

On Wednesday, he stated that he was enraged by the film, which was aired by ITV late Tuesday, but that he had been repeatedly promised that there had been no party.

Opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer accused Johnson of "playing the people for fools," while Scottish National Party leader Ian Blackford demanded Johnson to quit.

It is the latest blunder for a government that has already been chastised for its handling of a sleaze scandal, the awarding of Coronavirus contracts, the refurbishing of Johnson's Downing Street residence, and the Catastrophic exit from Afghanistan.

With suggestions that the government may apply stricter COVID-19 measures as early as Thursday to try to halt the spread of the Omicron coronavirus Variant of the coronavirus, many individuals may be persuaded to disregard any new laws.

"I apologise unreservedly for the offence that it has caused up and down the country and I apologise for the impression that it gives," he told parliament.

Boris stated that if regulations were disregarded, disciplinary action would be taken.

"But I repeat ... that I have been repeatedly assured since these allegations emerged, that there was no party and that no COVID rules were broken."
