At a time when the whole country was under house arrest in lockdown, ban on gatherings was being imposed, allegations were being leveled against the British Prime Minister for celebrating his birthday in violation of anti-terrorism laws.

That debate is still going on. Opposition groups called for a boycott of the assembly, but Boris and his party did worse than expected from opinion polls, which saw them at gaining about a third of the support. Opponents also demanded an unconditional apology in public. However, Boris never publicly admitted to organizing the party.

London police launched an investigation against him. According to British police sources, the Prime Minister had more than one party at that time. Boris was convicted. Similar allegations were made against Finance Minister Rishi Sunak. All of them were fined. But the opposition was not satisfied with the ‘punishment’ of the Prime Minister. They demanded the resignation of the Prime Minister and the Finance Minister. At the same time, the opposition demanded that the Prime Minister stand in Parliament and apologize unconditionally for his ‘irresponsible’ actions. In the end, under pressure, Boris apologized unconditionally.

In the context of that birthday party, Boris claims that the event was held in the cabinet room for ten minutes. There was a small gathering to congratulate him. “Honestly, I didn’t understand at the time what was going on,” Boris said.
