New Delhi: British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak on Thursday apologized for a “short error of judgement” in removing his seatbelt while making a video for social media while driving in north-west England.
Why did Rishi Sunak remove the seat belt?
Sunak’s Downing Street spokesman said on Thursday that he had only briefly unbuckled his seatbelt and admits he had made a mistake. In the UK, not wearing a seatbelt in a car can lead to an ‘on-the-spot’ fine of £100, rising to £500 if the matter goes to court.
Sunak’s spokesperson told the reason
Sunak’s spokesman said, ‘It was a brief error of judgement. The PM had removed his seat belt to make a short video. He fully accepts that it was a mistake and apologizes for it. The spokesperson said, ‘The Prime Minister believes that everyone should wear seat belts.’
This comes on a day he came under fire from the opposition for using a Royal Air Force (RAF) jet to fly over the north of the country. Downing Street insisted that the aircraft was used to ensure the best use of the Prime Minister’s time.
