Quiz of the week: Easter weekend

Boris Johnson is unlikely to have a quiet Easter weekend as his political future is again at stake.

The Prime Minister, along with his wife Carrie and Chancellor Rishi Sunak, was fined by the Metropolitan Police this week for attending his own birthday meeting at Downing Street on 19 June. No. 10 helpers are already preparing for more fines to comewhich they have concluded are almost “inevitable”.

Meanwhile, the Queen is no longer expected to attend the annual Easter Sunday service. No reason was given, but she has been withdrawing from events in recent months due to mobility issues.

The four-day weekend is expected to bring nice weather, but Brits have been warned of “motorist misery with congested motorways, busy trunk roads and high fuel bills,” he said Daily Mail. The RAC is forecasting up to 21.5 million car journeys over the first Easter weekend with no Covid restrictions since 2019.
