There is plenty more to come in "Partygate" and hopefully this, along with some poor local election results, will see the Tory Party grow a pair and get rid of Bojo.

Mind you, he's already purged the Tory Party of most of the "decent" candidates to "get Brexit done" and it looks like Jeremy Hunt may be the only candidate left who hasn't been "damaged" and he wasn't exactly popular last time he was in the Cabinet.


How often do you have an alcoholic drink when your working ??

The whataboutery is never going to end with this lot :lol:

In times of crisis for the Party and the Leader anything, no matter how spurious, needs to be deployed in their efforts to distract and dissemble.

Not often but, it's certainly happened several times over the years.

Mind you, If you are suggesting that it shouldn't happen or that someone was breaking the rules, how many fines should Bojo have received.
There is his Birthday, Downing Strest quiz night and the Garden Party where drink was in evidence, all during "full lockdown" all involving Bojo, where people were supposed to be working from home and not mixing ?

If Starmer has broken the rules he should be dealt with accordingly

Why the comparison? If KS has committed an individual breach then he should be investigated by the Police no matter what is happening to BJ.

Do try and keep up WQ, I did say that if he has done wrong, he should be dealt with accordingly.
He and Boris would make great cell mates !

This is a comparison even in your world........

A drink in a constituency office in not quite the same as the weekly parties at no 10, especially remembering the levels of restrictions that were in place at the time,

It seems a little odd that a meeting with curry and booze for 30 people is any less serious than a rendition of happy birthday and the blowing out of candles with a few colleagues.

The Met said something similar but decided to change their view and undertook an investigation on Boris and Co. Don't think the door is closed on this. Now we know KS overlooked his 'eye candy' being present plus ? 28 others that he also forgot about.

Was it a curry and booze u for 30 people ?

If so, deal with this in line with the rules at the time - no problem.

As for the cake and happy birthday :lol: as if this was the extent of the multiple gatherings at No 10 :CRAZY:

Why are you ignoring the, "remembering the levels of restrictions that were in place at the time" bit? Is it because once you account for that this made-up story stops being a thing?
