4:04 pm
address parliament late on wednesday afternoon about the incident. but he'll be doing that on thursday morning. and that was, he went to the residence in new delhi, instead of addressing parliament. or let's leave it there for the moment. thanks very much indeed. or let's from, from new delhi. let's move on to the u. k. where the prime minister has apologized to parliament after late video showed senior officials joking about a party during a covey 19 locked up. for us, johnson has repeatedly denied any rules of broken time insists he was told, the events never happened. well, a video has emerged, a senior government officials joking about the christmas party, which was reportedly held last december inside downing street. at that time, london was under a top tier restriction with no social events allowed even within businesses. please now say they're examining the video as part of a review of the reported violations on. let's take a look at the video that a spot this controls i just seen what was interesting, there was
4:05 pm
a down to try to recognize it. i went home old and all that with the condone was cheese the season line. all right. this is recorded inspection policy was a business meeting. not so she just well is bringing jenna. whoa. i jones now from london, and janet tell us more about what was said and well, it was certainly looking during the course of the morning in light of that video, like the prime minister really had to come to pm cues, his weekly premises question session and part of it on with something to try and
4:06 pm
get ahead of the story or the story might have the potential to do and he's got a real damage. and indeed, it may yet still do. but he stepped up and instantly came up with a statement, a statement in which he expressed his own outrage at seeing that video. he apologized unreservedly for any offense that was cause he promised an investigation . we'll see that video in a moment. but he also insisted that he rested on advice that he'd been given, that no rules were broken. that is still his position. well, to some degree, it took the sting out of what the opposition need a case karma was preparing to say the points he wanted to make, but it didn't stop him from making them. he said that if the prime minister was pretending that this was the 1st moment he'd heard about, the alleged christmas party via leaked video featuring 2 of his most senior stop. well then he was taking the country for fools. and mister drew, what could be a very damaging distinction between the government now and the queen, sitting alone distanced a few,
4:07 pm
a prince for the abiding by the rules. he said that was an example of moral authority and leadership that this government and this prime minister lacked is what parish johnson began by saying. i can understand how infuriating it must be to think that the people who have been setting the rules have not been following the mississippi. because i was also curious to see that. and if you pick up, i apologize. i apologize unreservedly to the effect that he just called up and down the country and i apologize to the impression that he gave but i repeat, this is speaker that i am being repeatedly assured since these are the asians emerged, that there was no party talking rules we're hearing that there will be an announcement later on on more restrictions. what would we know?
4:08 pm
there is supposed to be a press conference later with the prime minister. we think that he will at that press conference, announced an expansion of new social public health measures that had already come in as a result of the con variant. now being expanded so called plan b measures that have been apparently agreed by ministers in haste on wednesday. this is an accelerated announcement, if indeed it does come, we would expect today or anything for several days. and of course, the impression it gives and there's a lot talk already about it being a dead cat move the idea that by slapping plan b measures on the public, you change the conversation away from the christmas party. the problem, i think for downing street is that it may well old to the conversation, but the conversation could well become one about the extent to which the public is now willing to follow new rules. and whether this government has enough authority left to be able to enforce them. jenna,
4:09 pm
thanks for that jehovah in london. let's take some further. we can speak to mary saying, who's a political commentator, a former at chief press officer at 10 downing street, joins is now from london saying welcome to the program. do you think the problem is done enough in prime, mrs. questions to alleviate rule for this crisis to slip away like so many others seem to have done? no, i don't think you mean it was funny refreshing to see at least some kind of apology and the knowledge meant that there is something worth looking into here because for every week we just had, you know, the approach of nothing to see a bit of sticking fingers into is the problem away from the prime minister and also from other members of the u. k. government. so this is a shift in tone. shift in approach. but you also did repeat the line that there's been no party and this story is not going away. there's no obligations of other
4:10 pm
parties. i think there was 2 questions that need to be off. so i don't think this will just go away because we've had this shift in time to minister. so potentially where could this lead? what damage could it do? i think the biggest, the biggest thomas can do is really about compliance in the u. k. the transmission of the new variant is going in the wrong direction. there are more cases is now talk as you were alluding to of new restrictions being bought in the decision potentially even happening on that today. i think a lot of people will look at this and think, well, why should we have to comply with this? people who are making the rules are not complying with their own rules. because sentiment has been echoed by many of the governments and m. p. 's as well, so i think that is a very serious problem or the government. there's also the why the issue of trust within the government for
4:11 pm
a week people have been saying nothing to see here. and that's the images that there was then, is there a question about how much to department to even know where he stop being honest with them went through and why the issue about the government maybe not communicating as honestly as it should have been. so i think this ties into a bit of a narrative and politically, this is a problem because you have lots of them peas and it isn't just the opposition parties in the u. k. there's lots of conservative engine people. the government needs to keep on side. it need to support these people to get things through the house, like key legislation, right? if these people know wavering, this will be a problem going forward. and that, that dismay that you allude to that within his own party, could that gain momentum? and where could all this lead as far as the prominence same position is concerned? i think that could be because this is cutting through. this isn't just something that happened in westminster or number 10. you've seen people across the u. k.
4:12 pm
expressing concern about this, this may not be people who follow the minute of high politics in the cable. they know about this and it sticks to the narrative that has been leveled against the government for different things around this. one rule for people making these decisions and one will for so this is by the way that has impacted all m p 's and the u. k. notice the government, i should say to the more nervous people get on the bad benches. i think it will result in perhaps more m p 's rebelling or more m p 's not turning up to vote. and you've seen this in a few boats in the u. k. recent be that is a problem because yes, the prime minister has an atc majority which i think it has been something from the conservative side to be quite proud of having quite a long time. that really you just need 40 piece to the boat again, still not,
4:13 pm
not turn up and your majority is incident me weekend. and then the other point i would make is that the relationship a lot of n p 's hot with the prime minister is very transactional. there are a lot of people who may not necessarily like everything he does or says, but they see him as a winner. and therefore they, in some ways thank him for to see that they were present. if you start to lose folks that i think the transactional relationship will certainly change and we have a bi election coming up. can you even just over a week's time which is meant to be quite safe? conservative. see if there are significant changes there, but i think again will cause a lot of problems with prime minister. that's certainly going to be interesting to watch is net who say no. former chief press officer at 10 down the street. appreciate spectrum. thanks a lot. but the more still ahead on the news are including australia, join c, u. s. diplomatic boycott of next, he has winter olympics and beijing,
4:14 pm

4:15 pm
absolutely. and i'm not at the presidential rest of it. but at the new office of the new chancellor at the moment, all of shows is expected here any minute here, i'm glad merkel is waiting for him. she will give him the key. and that's the real and all for 16 years in office, she will go home and we don't know what she will be doing next. but she said she's going to take a long rest at least. and then all i of course, on all of shows and the team, many of them are on tested. they have from a large changes $400000.00 houses every year. the minimum wage goes up to 12 years of serious and speedy energy transition. a strang thing in the you, of course germany, the largest economy in europe is really important. everyone is waiting for this new chancellor and cabinets to go into action and we traveled to his home town and hamburg to find a bit more about him. and we met an old friend,
4:16 pm
a special discount for all of shells. hair cut, a little joke from barbara batch of, i'll gone to celebrate. the new chancello happened to be an old friend. they met when both are working for the s b day, the social democratic party, in hamburg, and toy too long for me does all of us. it's a special day because my good comrade, my very sensitive comrade, been a powerful position as chancellor and i will keep my fingers crossed on the wounded . this is really dissolved. i can't even explain how special stays for me. but i do need a clear and 63 year old child who was raised by social democratic parents joined the s b day at the age of 17. after working as a labor law attorney, he was elected mayor in hamburg in 2011, leading germany 2nd largest city, short showed himself as a pragmatic and a time stuff mere. he came on the fire when getting broke out during the 2017 g 20 summit in the city. its here in hamburg where all of shows was faster. that's

4:18 pm
has what it takes to lead internationally. i think his lack of car smoke is a weakness. now his, his advisors keep telling us that this is going to be a strong chancellor, that can bring people together and that behind the scenes he is the person that can do that. but certainly he hasn't shown that he can convey and can bring people behind him. germany will find out soon enough because the country takes over the g 7 presidency in january. an important moment for shoals to convince those who still have doubts, batch at organ has none. i mean that he listens, takes it in and does not forget. he will think about it before he makes a decision that is all of and he should just stay all and then he can do anything above all. i'll go and hopes a new chancellor. won't forget his old friends and will still visit him for some
