Boris Johnson Will Face Angry MPs as He Clings to Power in U.K.

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Boris Johnson Will Face Angry MPs as He Clings to Power in U.K.” – below is their description.

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson will face angry lawmakers in Parliament on Wednesday as he fights to save his political career while waiting for a report on alleged rule-breaking lockdown parties in government.

Johnson heads into his weekly Q&A session accused of lying to the House of Commons over his knowledge of a Downing Street garden party he attended during the pandemic. That’s a matter that usually prompts a minister’s resignation.

At the lowest point of his premiership, Johnson has confessed to, and apologized for, turning up at the now infamous event on May 20, 2020. But the furore only continued: Further revelations of parties at the heart of the British government have emerged, he is under attack from his former chief aide Dominic Cummings and more of his own backbenchers are calling for his resignation.
