UK Prime Minister while clarifying the matter said that “It did not occur to me then, or subsequently, that a gathering in the Cabinet room just before a vital meeting on Covid strategy could amount to a breach of the rules,” Johnson said, as per the BBC.

The opposition however did not step back from their demands of asking PM Borris Johnson to step down from the position. Labour Party Leader, Keir Starmer, termed Johnson’s apology in the parliament a “joke”. Starmer further added, The public have made up their mind: they don’t believe a word the prime minister says.” Johnson’s birthday party in 2020 especially when UK was battling the pandemic has strongly stood against PM Borris Johnson. The opposition led by Starmer attacked Johnson, “I’m very sorry to have to say this, but I no longer think he is worthy of the great office that he holds.”
