In response to a question about the reason for the apology of the office and not the head of the government personally, the spokesman replied: “The Prime Minister said that there were wrong judgments before and it was right for people to apologize as the Prime Minister did this week.” The fact remains that I cannot prejudge the investigation, which you know is ongoing and led by Sue Gray, but we are aware of the great public outcry, and it is unfortunate that it occurred at a time of national mourning.
Earlier on Friday, former communications director James Slack apologized for the situation described by the Daily Telegraph. It was due to his retirement from Downing Street and his move to The Sun newspaper that one of two events was organized on April 16, 2021. He stated that he wanted – To unconditionally apologize for the anger and pain this has caused. – This event should not happen. I am very sorry and take full responsibility – added.
The Daily Telegraph revealed that there were two events in Downing Street that day – one due to the departure of James Slack, and the other – one of the Prime Minister’s photographers. At first they were held separately – the latter in the basement of a building, in a poorly ventilated room, where the coronavirus spreads easily – but in the middle of the night the two merged into one Downing Street garden party. There were about 30 people at that time.
As the Daily Telegraph describes, citing eyewitnesses, including those who attended these events, there was at one time a fear that there might be a shortage of alcohol, so someone went to a nearby supermarket and brought a few bottles of wine in a suitcase. In turn, the participants in the basement party expressed concern that too much wine was spilled on the carpet as they danced. Later, when they had all moved into the park, a Downing Street employee climbed onto the Boris Johnson newborn swing and broke it. The party was supposed to end late after midnight from Friday to Saturday.
On Friday morning, Deputy Home Secretary Damian Hinds, speaking on Sky News, admitted he was shocked to read the reports.
