Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Boris Johnson's birthday party amid Covid curbs revealed”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The UK media has uncovered another gathering attended by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in violation of his own Covid-19 curbs in 2020, with Downing Street confirming that the birthday party in question did take place.

Johnson’s wife, Carrie, had organized a surprise party for him in the Cabinet Room at 10 Downing Street on June 19, 2020, broadcaster ITV reported on Monday.

The event was attended by some 30 people, despite indoor gatherings being banned in the UK at that time as part of anti-coronavirus measures. There was a cake, and Carrie allegedly led those gathered in singing happy birthday to the PM.

Some officials who were present at the gathering have denied ITV’s claim of 30 people being in attendance. Transport Secretary Grant Shapps told the BBC that the group was much smaller and that it had been working together all day. Environment Secretary George Eustice said the number of those present was “closer to ten,” adding that the whole event “was literally just a birthday cake brought in at the end of the day.”

The birthday gathering at 10 Downing Street took place just hours after Johnson visited a school in Hertfordshire, where he had posed with his arms outstretched with students to again underline the importance of social distancing to the British public.
