Commenting on the development, @good4tune, wrote on Twitter:

"Should that headline be “watchdog finally gets round to investigating complaints made over a year ago. Ineffectual wrist-slapping expected in 2022?"

@jebernstone also wrote:

"I do hope that media are not going to focus on that holiday. All we expect is an update on coronavirus and where we go from here not timewasting questions."

@Mikeuntold added:

"People don’t care. He could walk into the Bank of England and steal a gold bar and they wouldn’t care. If Putin came to London himself and handed him a sack of money with “SWAG” on the side of it live on TV they wouldn’t care. At this point he’s invincible."

Recall that had reported that Boris Johnson met with church and community leaders, including Sola Fola-Alade, a UK-based Nigerian pastor, to discuss COVID-19 vaccination.
