UK PM sorry for ‘partygate’ but vows to plough on

LONDON (AFP) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Monday apologised after his government was criticised for “failures of leadership and judgement” in allowing lockdown-breaching parties at his offices.

Johnson’s position has been hanging by a thread because of the steady drip of revelations since late last year, but he has in the last week been given a lifeline as police stepped in.

“I’m sorry for the things that we simply didn’t get right and also sorry for the way this matter has been handled,” Johnson told MPs in Parliament.
