British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has admitted to attending a garden party at his Downing Street residence during a coronavirus lock-in in May 2020, in violation of his government’s own pandemic rules.
Johnson addressed the British parliament on Wednesday, saying he wanted to “apologize” to the British people for his actions.
The prime minister said he entered the garden to thank his staff members before returning to his office 25 minutes later. He said he should have demanded afterwards that the event be stopped.
