British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak apologizes for not wearing seatbelt
london — u.k. prime minister rishi sunak apologized thursday for taking off his seatbelt to film a social media video in a moving car. a spokesman said sunak made an “error of judgment” while filming a message for instagram from the back of an official government car during a visit to northwest england. spokesman jamie davies said the prime minister “fully accepts this was a mistake and apologizes.” “the prime minister believes everyone should wear a seatbelt,” he said. failing to wear a seatbelt is punishable in the u.k. by a fine of up to 500 pounds ($620). sunak’s travel arrangements also drew criticism after it emerged he took a 28-minute flight on a taxpayer-funded jet from northwest to northeast england as he promoted government funding for community projects on thursday.
