The Sunday Telegraph published this photo in its online newspaper for everyone to see. In it, Carrie had wrapped her arm around Anna Pinder.

“Mrs Johnson was one of a group of six seated outside celebrating a friend’s engagement.
“Mrs Johnson regrets the momentary lapse in judgement in briefly hugging her friend for a photograph.”

Will Boris resign?
The demand for resignation of Boris is mounting. But defenders of Boris do not want to answer any questions related to it. They are telling people to wait for the report of Sue Gray to decide further.
Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer has made an election promise that he and his government would behave and work with integrity. He added that if brought back to power, they would restore the lost trust in the government. He wrote in The Sunday Mirror:
“The Prime Minister’s actions, and his inability to take any responsibility for them, means he can no longer do his basic duties.
“In the public interest, he should resign.”
Opinium did a survey: Labour got 41% vote share and was 10 points ahead of Conservatives which had 31%. Two-thirds surveyed said that he should step down. His ratings have dropped drastically over this weekend. Boris may be forced to bow down and buckle out with the rising pressure.
