The Independent published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson says ‘nobody told me’ Downing Street party broke lockdown rules” – below is their description.
Boris Johnson has said he “categorically” was not warned that a garden party in No 10 at the height of lockdown would breach the Covid rules.
Fighting for his political life, the prime minister was asked whether he could resign over the scandal, and replied: “We’ll have to see what [the internal inquiry] says.”
Asked if he had lied to the House of Commons over the parties, the prime minister said: “Nobody told me that what we were doing was against the rules, that the event in question was something that … was not a work event, and as I said in the House of Commons when I went out into that garden I thought that I was attending a work event.”
