LONDON, May 25 (Reuters) - Opposition Labour Party leader Keir Starmer said that a report by civil servant Sue Gray into lockdown rule-breaking in Downing Street would stand as a monument to the "hubris and arrogance" of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's government.

"When the dust settles and the anger subsides, this report will stand as a monument to the hubris and the arrogance of a government that believed it was one rule for them and another rule for everyone else," Starmer told parliament on Wednesday after the full report was published.
