PM Johnson's staff held 'wine-time' gatherings in lockdown -UK's Mirror

Fri, 14th Jan 2022 20:08

LONDON, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Staff at Boris Johnson's
residence held gatherings dubbed "wine-time Fridays" during
pandemic lockdowns, with the British prime minister regularly
witnessing gatherings and encouraging staff to "let off steam",
the Mirror newspaper reported on Friday.

The newspaper said staff had bought a large drinks fridge
for the office, which they refilled by taking a suitcase to the
local supermarket to buy bottles.

The Mirror said Johnson attended a "handful" of the
gatherings when indoor socialising was banned. A senior civil
servant is investigating a spate of parties at Downing Street,
and Johnson apologised for the events earlier this week.
