Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak REFUSE to resign despite Lockdown Party Fines
Boris Johnson and Rishi Sunak have both refused to resign, despite being fined by police for breaking lockdown rules in Downing Street in June 2020.
The prime minister, the chancellor and the PM's wife all received fixed penalty notices for attending a birthday gathering for the PM in No 10.
This was one of numerous parties held by Government officials and staff whilst the rest of the UK population had been ordered to remain in their houses, or face fines or arrest.
Boris Johnson has become the UK's first serving prime minister to be sanctioned for breaking the law.
All three apologised, but Johnson and Sunak have refused to resign.
Bereaved families said there was "simply no way" either could continue in their jobs, calling their actions "truly shameless".
During the Governments 'Lockdown Party Period', families were separated, people were left to die alone due due to social distancing rules and Brits were unable to attend the funerals of their loved ones.
All cabinet ministers have publicly backed Mr Johnson and Mr Sunak - including Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, who said they were "delivering for Britain on many fronts".
Nigel Mills is currently the only Tory MP known to have said publicly that Mr Johnson should go, telling BBC Radio Derby: "I don't think his position is tenable".
PM Boris Johnson Lie:
Reports of parties being held in Downing Street during lockdowns first emerged in December last year, with Boris Johnson insisting that "guidelines were followed at all times".
Chancellor Rishi Sunak Lie:
Rishi Sunak also told the Commons: "I did not attend any parties."
The fines come as part of an investigation by the Metropolitan Police into illegal parties held in Downing Street and across Whitehall during Covid lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.
The force is looking into 12 parties overall, and has already issued more than 50 fines, with more expected to come.
