UK PM Boris Johnson's spokesman apologises to Queen over lockdown parties – BBC News


Downing Street has apologised to Buckingham Palace for two staff parties in No 10 on the night before Prince Philip’s funeral.

The gatherings, first reported by The Telegraph newspaper, took place on 16 April 2021 and went on until the early hours.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s spokesman said it was “deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning”.

Boris Johnson, who was not at either party, faces questions over alleged Covid rule-breaking at No 10.

  1. Was Sue Grey at the Party?
    That need to be checked. Who is going to do that

  2. I have had enough of this story. It doesn't affect us in any way. Let it go.

  3. Biased Broadcasting Company!

  4. How about apologising to the British public instead of the tyranny that rule them!

  5. He has to go . Enough Already !!!

  6. So now rename 10 DOWING STREET AS

  7. In fact, to crack down on Xi Jinping's dictatorship, we must start from the people around him. The corruption, human rights violations and illegitimate gains of all his family members and overseas family members should be made public and sent back to China for the people to judge. Expose his illegitimate children. The same goes for Putin.

  8. Forgive him, he is feeling younger than brain

  9. Aye Lizzy . Fire this man 😂

  10. Johnstone was at Parliament banging lines of coke,
    Was at party afterwards

  11. It's totally out of order apologising to the Queen. The Queen has more to apologise for. She will be embarrassed. It's the traitors within Mr Johnston's party who are behind this. They believe it will help to usurp their leader. No better than republican 'Rhinoes' in the US.

  12. So he'll apologise to his boss properly but won't apologise to the public properly, boris…. YOU SERVE THE PUBLIC!

  13. One rule for them another for the rest of us , it reminds me of animal farm, " we are all equal , but some of us are more equal than others"

  14. There only sorry because they got caught they don't give a shit 😠

  15. What an Entitled twat!I I should be apologetic about my language but… I am not. All the Cons are. But I am sorry but so are most of the politicians on both sides. They don't represent us. They represent their bank balances. Bankers and millionaires and billionaires. The working classes, that contribute so much, control nothing. We are just cannon fodder. Increased costs on utilities/ National insurance/ Goods. Thats Brexit for you. That's the Cons for you that set this process in motion. The only people who benefit are those with bank accounts off island. They have parties during lockdown and the evidence is there but why aren't they prosecuted? Why aren't the metropolitan Police pursuing this? Someone with any journalistic integrity should be looking at this. But they aren't. A very sad day for all those that followed the Government guidance, especially as the government did not. One rule for us, a different rule for them. Despicable,. Considering the working classes contribute the most from taxation, they really should consider who they are working for. I am not a Conservative voter. And I don't care for labour. But for all those that vote Conservative please consider how they have approached the Corona pandemic. When a Government doesn't work FOR the people, they are definitely against the people.

  16. Wow the BBC allows comments?

  17. It's disgusting how your prime minister behaves. He should resign or be cicked out.

    But I keep wondering why they're is no criticism focused towards the tory-personel that we're having the party. They were partying at least seven times which shows the magnitude of the lack of integrity and respect inside the Tory government.

    It would only be fair if they were punished as well and not only Boho.

    Some of them are probably politicians themselves or want to become one in the future and it should be publicly known they were at the party.


  19. Westminster is meant to be her majestys government voted by the people but the only ones they're interested in serving is themselves. It's getting to the point where a return to the rule of a monarch would be a far better thing than continuing the self serving dictatorship of the tory government.

    Between the lie that got parliament prorogued and this very personal slight she'd probably be well within her rights to step in and purge the whole rotten lot of them.

  20. Least now I don’t have to fell so bad for not doing any lockdown and had party’s lockdown was one of the best times in my life, me and my best friends had party’s most days well I say there my best friends but really I don’t think my wife and children see me as a friend and my wife hates me she sometimes cooks dinner and makes me eat it. If I was as good as her at cooking I wouldn’t make my friends eat it in my house no one has had the jab. But like I say if we eat my wife’s cooking and don’t die covid will shit it’s pants if it had to come close to us,,,thanks boris Johnson don’t know how we could of done lockdown without the comedy you supplied for us over the year 😂

  21. The irony that the one person who is literally above the law, sacrificed to mourn her late husband on her own, whilst the people still “supposedly” within law are breaking them.

  22. British Gov becoming worse then Royal family members – Not! 😂😂

  23. Entitlement Royals titles! do you expect these people to play to the rules 🤣, self gain all round look at Tony Blair ffs a Knighthood for killing Millions for self gain, and people are shocked Boris has had a house party

  24. Britain should have made some deal with china on tibbet before handing over hongkong to china; it was possible.

  25. Just use you own common sense and view BJ as if he was your own self

  26. I'm the Pretty Prince of Parties. You're the shat on British Voter.

  27. if boris is in the wrong admit it , but he wont. keeps going on about waiting for the report which he hopes goes in his favour, i always go to parties and wake up days later wondering if it was a party or a work meeting,never trust a man who brushes his hair with a toffee apple

  28. When I see queen my heart starts crying what a nice woman

  29. It’s funny how he’s never there at the parties that are at his home 😂

  30. Was it an actual apology or a Boris 'Im waiting for Sue Grey to tell me if I was at the party' kind of apology? I've personally never been to a work meeting that involved a suitcase of wine with invitations sent to 100 people

  31. 14 party's was done was he there yes read up on it all and the person that investigating it biased towards everyone else (yes) ob Boris Johnson side so why would we believe he lies after lies

  32. The irony that the one person who is literally above the law, sacrificed to mourn her late husband on her own, whilst the people still “supposedly” within law are breaking them.

  33. i voted for him because i thought he loved our country but he was out partying while making our queen sit alone at her husbands funeral ? He should never be forgiven. He is a disgrace to humanity. . I will never vote conservative again until he is gone ! FACT!!!!!1

  34. Apologies Not expected this is a disgrace foul torys doing what they want makeing money while people die alone wake up people don't vote Tory otherwise this is what you get

  35. The Queen sat on her own her Choice, it didn’t stop her talking to the vicar when going into church, she stood and talked to the vicar and did not social distance, what was the point of her sitting on her own away from her family after that incidence,

  36. Boris will win again and again

  37. Well they are called the Conservative PARTY,

  38. When will people wake up. Its a complete farce. Let's hope there is a revulsion from the general public. Come on guys. Are we really going to take this😂

  39. Prison for all tories

  40. Lizard truss is not to be trusted. Boris should go but she should not get into power.

  41. I held a party to celebrate when he died and then another on his funeral what's the big deal?

  42. it's like there a pile of shit on the road and they keep talking about it being there, but won't do anything about removing it.

    wake me up when BOJO and the CONS party are no longer in power
