British Prime Minister Boris Johnson (Nakalarawan) delivered a statement to parliament on Monday (31 January) after he received a civil servant’s report on parties at his Downing Street residence that appeared to breach coronavirus lockdown restrictions, magsulat William James at Kylie Maclellan.

Si Johnson, na nahaharap sa pinakamatinding banta sa kanyang pagiging premier sa mga di-umano'y partido sa kanyang tirahan at opisina sa Number 10 Downing Street, ay hanggang ngayon ay nakatiis sa mga tawag mula sa mga kalaban at ilan sa kanyang sariling partido na magbitiw sa pamamagitan ng pagsasabing ang mga tao ay dapat maghintay para sa ulat ng senior civil lingkod Sue Gray.

However, the report will be limited in what it reveals. It will only describe events that are not under investigation by London’s Metropolitan Police – a move that has drawn criticism from opposition lawmakers who say it has handed the prime minister a means to dodge the truth.

Gray is looking into what has become weeks of a steady drip of stories about events in Downing Street, with reports of aides stuffing a suitcase full of supermarket alcohol, breaking a children’s swing and dancing until the early hours.

Accounts of more than a dozen gatherings – including a “bring your own booze” party in the Downing Street garden – have provoked widespread public anger, fuelling the perception that the political elite failed to stick to the tough lockdown rules they set for the rest of the country.

The prime minister’s spokesman has said that Johnson does not believe he has broken the law.

“We can confirm that Sue Gray provided that update to the prime minister,” the spokesman said.

“The findings will be published and made available in the House of Commons library this afternoon and the prime minister will then provide a statement…when people have had the opportunity to read and consider the findings.”

Gray is looking at several allegations that officials, and Johnson, attended parties in Downing Street and other government offices in breach of the rules they had themselves imposed on the population to fight the coronavirus pandemic. One took place on the eve of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth’s husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Gray’s report was seen as crucial to his fate, but its impact might be softened after the opening of the investigation by the police into whether criminal offences had been committed.

They asked her to make only “minimal reference” to the events they are looking into.

Bilang resulta ng imbestigasyon ng pulisya, ang dokumento mula kay Gray ay hindi ang buong account na maaaring matanggap ni Johnson. Ang pag-update ay mai-publish mamaya sa Lunes, at gagawa din si Johnson ng pahayag sa parliament sa 1530 GMT.

“The fact that Number 10 is backpedaling on ever releasing the whole Sue Gray report is as disgraceful as it is predictable,” Ed Davey, leader of the opposition Liberal Democrat party, said on Twitter.

Ngunit ang pagkaantala sa paghahatid ng ulat ay nagbigay din kay Johnson at sa kanyang mga tagasuporta ng oras upang subukang hikayatin ang mga kasamahan na huwag magpalitaw ng boto ng kumpiyansa sa kanya.

Asked if he thought he had broken the rules, Johnson said earlier on Monday: “You’re going to have to wait and see the outcome of the investigations … but of course I stick absolutely to what I said in the past.”

Humingi ng paumanhin si Johnson para sa mga pagkakamaling nagawa at sinabing dumalo siya sa isang garden party sa pag-aakalang isa itong work event, ngunit tinanggihan niya ang mga tawag na huminto.
