Britain’s Boris Johnson attends his birthday party while the rest of the country is in lockdown

Read Time:2 Minute, 17 Second


A Downing Street spokesman said in a statement: “A group of staff working on the 10th that day gathered briefly in the Cabinet Room after the meeting to wish the Prime Minister a happy birthday. He was there for less than ten minutes.”

Under Covid-19 restrictions at the time, indoor gatherings were not allowed, and people were only allowed to gather outdoors in groups of up to six people.

CNN affiliate ITV reported Monday that two parties were held to celebrate Johnson’s birthday: one at the Cabinet Office on the afternoon of June 19, attended by as many as 30 people, and another at Johnson’s that evening. Held at the residence with family and friends in attendance.

According to ITV News, Johnson’s wife Carrie organised the small gathering in the Cabinet Room. A source working in Downing Street at the time confirmed to CNN independently that the party took place that day and was arranged by Carrie, the lead singer of the Happy Birthday song.

Boris Johnson is facing a make-or-break moment and the report will go to 'Partygate'.scandal

CNN has learned that people believed to be in Johnson’s inner circle at the time mostly attended the gathering.

Downing Street has denied any breaches of rules at the gala, with a spokesman saying: “This is completely untrue. In line with the rules at the time, the Prime Minister hosted a small number of family members outside quite late.”

Johnson has been under pressure for weeks for allegedly holding summer garden parties and Christmas gatherings in Downing Street when the rest of the country was under strict coronavirus restrictions.

A report on the allegations, due to be released this week, could be the final straw for Johnson’s increasingly rebellious party.

Johnson’s approval ratings are falling, and parts of his governing Conservative Party seem increasingly to feel he is becoming a liability. Two polls in the past week showed as many as two-thirds of voters wanted him to resign.

When asked about the multitude of political parties, the Prime Minister gave an incredible answer. First he said no. Once undeniable evidence emerged, he denied knowing about the gatherings. When pictures of him at one such event were posted, he insisted he didn’t realise the gathering was a party, saying he “secretly thought it was a work event”.

Johnson was even forced to apologise to the Queen after news broke of a party in Downing Street the night before Prince Philip’s funeral. It was pointed out at the time that the Queen was forced to sit alone at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to mourn her husband due to Covid-19 restrictions.
