There have already been changes, which internal investigator Sue Gray also noted in her “Partygate” report. The prime minister did not mention a resignation.
Johnson said he stopped by meetings to express thanks and appreciation to his hard-working employees. “Some of these meetings lasted longer than necessary and were clearly a breach of the rules,” the prime minister admitted. He was not aware of these violations at the time. He was just as surprised and disappointed as everyone else.
Johnson stressed that the police investigation had shown that his behavior had not broken the rules except for one case. Now that the investigation is complete, the country can look ahead and leave the case behind.
Top official Gray had accused the government of serious failure and misconduct and called for top management to take responsibility.
