Boris Johnson, who was watching theatre performances of Macbeth and Tory dramas for the week, ‘broke Covid laws by refusing to wear a masque’

  • Boris Johnson was reportedly seen maskless at the theatre, watching Macbeth
  • A PM is accused of breaking Covid rules at Almeida, London.
  • His press secretary insists that Johnson is following coronavirus guidelines 

Boris Johnson is accused of not wearing a mask when he watched Macbeth.

The PM was apparently spotted at the Almeida theatre without a face covering during a performance last night.

According to The Guardian, another witness witnessed him wearing a mask in public areas of a north London venue.

However, No10 maintained that the Premier – apparently taking a rest after another week’s Tory drama-‘follows all Covid Rules’. 

The theatre asks that patrons cover their faces during visits, except when eating or drinking.

Although the Government has dropped mask-wearing regulations in England, some transport networks and shops continue to recommend that they be worn.

Reporters asked Johnson why he was not wearing a mask while performing, and his press secretary answered that the PM followed all Covid rules.

When asked by the audience why they didn’t comply with the request to wear a mask, she repeated her answer.

According to the Almeida website, the statement reads: “We request that all visitors continue wearing a cover while they are in the theatre. Except when exempted or eating or drinking.

“You might be reminded about this upon entry, but this will not be enforced.”

According to The Guardian, a witness saw Mr Johnson’s mask being’removed at the conclusion as the lights turned up’ during the Shakespearean tragedy.

The Prime Minister is being accused not once but twice this month of violating regulations concerning mask-wearing.

When he was seated next to Sir David Attenborough (95-year-old environmentalist and broadcaster) at the Cop26 summit, Glasgow and when greeting staff in hospitals during his visit to the North East, Attenborough had previously been criticised.
