It was reported that one of the boozy lockdown bashes held at Downing Street over lockdown was a leaving party for Dominic Cummings former aide Cleo Watson.
The Prime Minister and his Downing Street staff are accused of breaking COVID rules by hosting three celebratory parties in 2020.
On November 27, Boris Johnson is said to have given a speech at a crowded leaving do for a senior aide, who a newspaper outlet named as Cleo Watson, nicknamed ‘The Gazelle’.
The 32-year-old was one of Dominic Cummings protégés but has now left No 10 to write an erotic political thriller about the lewd goings-on in Westminster.
At the time Britain was in the grip of the second lockdown, with all indoor social gatherings forbidden unless they involved a single household bubble.
Friends of his former communications chief Lee Cain denied the event was for him, saying that he left in the first week of the month.
Then, on December 18, Downing Street staffers allegedly held their own celebratory party featuring a Christmas quiz and Secret Santa. At that time, London was subject to Tier 3 restrictions, with indoor gatherings banned and the rule of six outside.
According to a newspaper outlet, at each of the two parties, there were 40 or 50 people jammed cheek by jowl into a medium-sized room.
A source also alleged there was a third, smaller gathering on November 13, the night Dominic Cummings walked out.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesperson didn’t deny the gathering had taken place but he said that at all stages, the rules had been followed.
The Prime Minister’s press secretary added that they didn’t recognise that account, as they’ve said COVID rules had been observed at all times.
Asked which parts of the report were being dismissed, she said that she wasn’t going to get into individual aspects of speculation.
Separately, a spokesperson described it as total nonsense and maintained that Mr and Mrs Johnson had held parties in their private flat.
Sir Keir Starmer questioned Boris Johnson on the claims at PMQs and he asked if a party was held on December 18 as reported.
Boris Johnson evaded the question and told the Labour leader that all guidance was followed completely.
Sir Keir Starmer said the COVID rules at the time said that you mustn’t have a work Christmas lunch or party and that Boris Johnson was taking the British people for fools.
It seems that now, it’s do as I say and not as I do, and all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others!
At least when Matt Hancock got caught violating the rules, he resigned, all Boris Johnson can do is lie, and what about the police outside guarding No 10, did they just turn a blind eye to all the goings-on?
At the end of the day, when you think about it, we the British public are allowing the few to govern the many, so how weak are we to let them get away with it?
This is the Prime Minister of the country who makes the rules and forces them on the common people but doesn’t follow them himself and I’m amazed at how many people support him when he’s selling you lies – this country is doomed!
And Boris Johnson actually makes Guy Fawkes look great, after all, he was only destroying the Houses of Parliament, Boris is destroying the whole country.
What Boris Johnson should do is just admit that he broke the rules, and now he’s just digging a huge hole for himself, but of course, he still expects the people to take notice of him.
