Boris Johnson says it was “logistically impossible” to follow confinement rules in Downing Street
This Monday Sunak joined the long list of witnesses of a commission for which Johnson himself already paraded last week and which is not intended to find culprits. “It is important to learn the lessons to prepare ourselves better for the future,” summarized the current ‘premier’, who has promised to collaborate in a “constructive” way in the investigations.
Thus, Sunak has reported a few difficult months. “I saw the prime minister more than my wife,” he stated, in an appearance in which he denied that there were serious problems within the Executive that hindered the correct response to the pandemic. Altar has denied that there can be any talk of internal “shocks”.
His job, he explained, consisted of “give the best advice” possible to Johnsonespecially with regard to the economic point of view, but it is “absolutely true” that the last word fell to the then tenant of Downing Street, according to statements collected by the Sky News network.
He has also justified that there were no records of all the meetings or that he does not have in his possession all the WhatsApp messages that the investigators now demand from him, arguing that he is not a “prolific user” of this messaging network and that he has changed terminals. phone call “multiple times” in recent years.
