LONDON (Reuters) - British police will investigate reports of a spate of parties held at Prime Minister Boris Johnson's residence and office during COVID-19 lockdowns, two media reports said on Tuesday.

The Telegraph newspaper said London police were poised to announce that they would launch a criminal investigation into the allegations surrounding Downing Parties, after previously declining to do so.

Boris Johnson is a pathological liar. if he thought they were working meetings, then why did he feel the need to take his wife? How could he not know other parties were being held...they were being held in his own back garden.

all trivial compared to the bigger picture of getting the economy back on track and sorting out brexit. any politician talking about this is not doing their job.If it were doctors and nurses bringing in a birthday cake for their colleagues and having a bit of well deserved down time, no one would be bothered. the government worked incredibly hard during the pandemic and deserve a bit of down time. they all worked together in the same building, so it's not like they were creating any greater health hazard by having these parties. this is just a witch hunt and another waste of time generated by opposition parties to prevent government getting on with policies that could make a difference to this country

When relatives were denied seeing their loved ones who were dying, these party's we're an insult. That's the bigger picture

I can understand the pain that people have gone through due to the pandemic. I also agree that the government should have adhered to the rules. However, this is not the "bigger picture", its history and nothing will change it. The rules on visiting people in hospital were not devised to make people lives difficult, they were there to protect the vulnerable. If the law was not in place, would you have gone to visit people in hospital and care homes (potentially putting hundreds of lives at risk)??. The "party" at No 10 put few (if any) lives at risk since they all worked together so would have caused illness between them due to normal work. Again, morally I agree the politicians should not have done it, but its definitely not worth all the time it has taken up in Parliament.
