LETTER:

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is in deep trouble. While the rest of the country had battened down the hatches against Covid-19, he is accused of having a Christmas party for staff on December 18 last year. He has denied it repeatedly. But when a video emerged of his adviser Allegra Stratton laughing when questioned about the party, he apologised unreservedly for the video.

But the British public will have none of it. Over 60% of respondents to a survey by Sky News don’t believe Johnson is telling the truth.
