  • British Prime Minister Boris Johnson apologized on Wednesday for attending a "bring your own booze" staff gathering at his official residence during the first COVID-19 lockdown, as opponents called for his resignation.
    Johnson admitted for the first time he had attended the party at Downing Street on May 20, 2020, during a lockdown when social gatherings were limited and said he understood the anger that the revelations had caused.
    "I know the rage they feel with me over the government I lead when they think that in Downing Street itself the rules are not being properly followed by the people who make the rules," Johnson told parliament.
    Johnson said he regretted his action and had thought the gathering was a work event.

      @Quinton Suyker We live in Hell and are living in the End Times these people knowingly and unknowingly serve the devil. The earth tells us we live in Hell as the celebrities, musicians, athletes openly worship the devil and alot admit they sold there soul to the devil. World leaders openly worship the devil with hand signs in front of your face and they even sing to Lucifer in the vatican the catholic world religion. This is all easily veifiable even undiputed and the world pretends it's a joke. We live in hell because we were all kicked out of Heaven but God who kicked us out gave us one way back and that is through Jesus. You see Jesus was God in the flesh and came and lived a perfect sinless life so when you get forgiven you get forgiven on his merit not yours. You can know this is the truth and not a fairy tale by going in your room in private and telling God you believe Jesus died for you and telling him everything you think you did wrong on the earth. Do this and mean it and God Amighty himself will answer you letting you know he is real and you did the right thing. But your not out of the woods at this point it's your job to have a relationship with God and give up your sins as it was sin that separated you. The only way to stay out of sin is a daily relationship with God praying and reading the bible. God wrote the bible and it's your daily bread it will renew your mind and teach you about the severity of sin. Prayer is just talking to God, get on your knees when you have important things to ask and just talk to God freely throughout the day. Do this and God will answer your prayers increasing your faith and relationship.

      @Cartoonishly Inept Media reports on it because it creates the narrative that the lockdowns were justified, and that the people should be mad at Boris for breaking them, hence the apology, instead of the narrative that it SHOULD be, which is that the lockdowns weren't effective because the virus mainly affects the old&sick, which Boris isn't, and thus he knew he would be fine.
