UK PM Sunak refuses comment on soon-to-be-released 'partygate' report


Interviewed during a visit to a police station, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak refuses to comment on the long-awaited publication of a report on the "Partygate" scandal implicating his predecessor Boris Johnson, preferring instead to deflect attention towards the government's plan to tackle illegal migration and grow the economy. The "Partygate" scandal saw Johnson and dozens of government officials, including then-Chancellor Sunak, fined by police for breaking the social distancing laws the government imposed on the public to curtail the spread of Covid-19.
