ah, i'm loyal heart. thank you so much for joining us. well, we begin this broadcast in the u. k, where all eyes are on prime minister bores johnson in a dramatic development. police are now investigating allegations that parties were held ad downing street that breached cove at 19 log down restrictions. mister johnson now faces perhaps the biggest crisis of his leadership, with calls for his resignation growing louder by the day. bonus. johnson is under fire again for attending his own birthday party. at downing street in june 2020 a body that broke lockdown rules at the time. london metropolitan police have now launched an inquiry. so well, cook permits decision to conduct its own investigation. but to go, i believe this will help to give the public with clarity. it needs and helped to draw a line under matters at the time cove and restrictions did not allow more than 2
people to meet in doors. and a series of leaks suggest that a string of illegal social gatherings took place at downing street. this particular one was a surprise thrown by his wife and attended by several others. what we know is that 30 people gathered that his wife was there and that the interior designer was there as well as if it was my birthday. ah, and my wife and an interior designer rocked up at work. ah, there was kristi's k o birthday cake and a celebration. it preaches the rules, labor profit as the investigation, luna light calls for johnson to resign are increasing across the political spectrum . yes, i think the public might there, melissa, i think public opinion has already concluded that he broke the rules that he might on that he hasn't told the truth about it. i mean,
he hasn't got the authority to lead the com freight when we're in the middle of huge challenges, and therefore he has to go for the good of the country. i commission in the pin. now, johnson may still found bullish, but if enough, con the weight of m. p. 's decide their leader has gone too far, the prime minister could be forced to resign, apologized sincerely for the 2nd hour to london. did his correspondence, bigot mos is covering this the ongoing unfolding a story, a beer gets? i understand mister johnson addressed a parliament earlier, but he didn't have that much to say. it was very short, leyland, a little bit peculiar, almost like he was distancing himself as though he wasn't really implicated in this investigation. whereas we know this is exactly the subject of the police investigation now into their,
the conduct of the prime minister and also other staff in downing street where he lives and works and also across other government building. so he is definitely deeply implicated in all this bigot. it's been a relentless stream of damaging revelations that have come to light. you've been reporting on them. and it seems that public opinion is now starting to turn against the prime in a so sick listen to what some people in london a think and then we'll pick it up after that. well then a 2nd, so long as mean so many controversy so far hasn't kicked him out of officer smith teflon pm at the moment, so i've never expected any more from him. totally disappointed. it's just one thing after another rating, and i think that excuses around joy really well to be honest. it's like you said, she probably grew chicago. tribune excuses are we coming from and you know, everything, excuse an apology. the other died a slot and so in all our intelligence failures in teaching, so that dom that we're going to play with. yeah,
i'll be on this. always vote for it's got go in, roseville goes, singing criticism, their beer get out. how significant is it that the police are investigating a sitting british prime minister? is there a precedent for this it's really a hugely, hugely significant and you can hear it. and the voices of their londoners that are interviewed. people are really better because many of them have made personal sacrifices. there were not able to be with loved ones when they died or were not able to attend funerals. so this really is evoking a feeling and in many people as though there is one rule for them, very strict locked on rules. and another rule for, for the people who make the rules who don't really stick to them at all. and this really gives the impression that the, the moral authority of bonds borrows johnson's leadership is really challenged.
hugely. and for example, mark drake for the 1st minister of wales, has questioned that moral authority. and he said he is really not fit to leave the country. so, you know, when, when somebody who is the leader of evolved nation and wales, say something like that, that really speaks a very very loudly and the m. p. 's will now have to decide about boys. johnson's future will really be debating amongst themselves whether he really is the right person to lead them into the next election. reagan mass reporting from london burger. thank you. french president emory on my call and german. that chance that all our shorts are meeting in berlin to coordinate their response to tension between russia and ukraine. it was their 2nd face to face chart says mister schultz went to paris days after taking office last month. their meeting comes the day after the 2 leaders agreed that further russian aggression
