About 50 additional fines have been announced in the investigation into the parties held by British authorities during the locks, with a total of more than 100 fines, police said on Thursday.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, his wife Gary and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak were fined in April 2020 for attending Mr Johnson’s 56th birthday party in the Council of Ministers chamber. Police announced Thursday that they have now been dispatched. As part of this investigation, a total of “more than 100” fines were imposed for violating anti-Govt rules, which “continue”.

Fall of fame

Boris Johnson apologized “uncertainly” in parliament after receiving a fine for failing to convince his opponents of his resignation. The Tory leader said it “did not appear to him then or after,” and it was common practice for him to attend a brief meeting on his birthday that would “break the rules”.

The revelation of a series of festive events in Downing Street or in circles of power shocked the British, while at the same time forcing them by law to restrict their social interactions. This “party” has tarnished the image of Boris Johnson, and the Conservative Party suffered a major setback in the local elections in early May, amid rising inflation and a purchasing power crisis.
