Civil servants and No 10 advisers furious over single fine for Boris Johnson
The Guardian says civil servants and special advisers have reacted with fury and disbelief after Scotland Yard confirmed Boris Johnson got only one of 126 fines levied for law-breaking parties at the heart of Downing Street and Whitehall.
The Metropolitan police came under intense pressure to explain how it reached its conclusions after Downing Street said officers confirmed no further action would be taken against the prime minister despite him attending gatherings for which others were fined.
The Met’s four-month £460,000 investigation has concluded, paving the way for the publication of a full report by the senior civil servant Sue Gray next week. Her preliminary report found “failures of leadership and judgment by different parts of No 10 and the Cabinet Office”.
