UK: Boris Johnson responds to police questionnaire in ‘Partygate’ investigation

He complied with Scotland Yard’s request. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson responded to the questionnaire sent by London police in the investigation of gatherings in Downing Street during confinement, his services said on Friday February 18.

The head of the British government, whose political survival is at stake in this case, returned the survey questionnaire within the seven-day period which had been set, according to Downing Street. Eight days ago, the London police announced that they would contact “more than 50 people” to obtain their depositions in this scandalous affair in the United Kingdom.

A dozen receptions, spread between 2020 and 2021, are targeted by the police investigation. They took place as the British saw their social contacts severely hampered by health restrictions against Covid-19.

Excluding any resignation despite calls to do so from the opposition and from deputies from his own conservative camp, Boris Johnson has been fighting for several weeks to save his post. After the publication of an internal preliminary report pointing out “errors of leadership and judgment”, his fate remains dependent on the conclusions of the police investigation. If they overwhelmed him, the threshold of 54 Conservative MPs required to trigger a vote of no confidence could quickly be reached.
