Sajid Javid dodges questions over partygate: Did Boris Johnson preside over ‘widespread criminality’?

It comes after a former government ethics chief admitted she was among the first batch of people to receive a fixed-penalty notice from the force, which is investigating 12 separate events held during Covid restrictions.
Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, suggested earlier this week that the prime minister had misled the public over the scandal, and claimed he had presided over “widespread criminality” in No 10.
