    Yesterday a leaked email was released by ITV News, confirming there was a party at Number 10 that (seems to have) broken lockdown rules. To make matters worse, it's being reported that Johnson himself was at the event. Therefore the MET Police launched an investigation to find out more. So in this video we'll explain the new revelation, the investigation and if this is the end for Johnson.

    A meeting with no documents, laptops or notepads but does have bottles of wine and the wife. Obviously, an intense and detail packed meeting. No wonder it overran.

    This should be investigated by another force as directed by the Police Complaints Authority, since MET officers were on duty in Downing Street and must have been aware of what was happening. How can we possibly trust the MET to essentially investigate it's own complicity?

    I’m constantly amazed that no one in authority at No. 10 had the foresight to see how bad this would look if it ever became public and stop scenes like this from taking place during the peek of lockdown. Even so, if Johnson had just owned up and apologized at the first revelation of this, I think it would been a non-issue fairly quickly. The lack of vision and strategy here is classic- and baffling.

    One of my parents friends is a lovely sweet old lady who lives in their village. She lost her husband of over 50 years during the first lockdown in 2020, not due to Covid but just because he'd had long-term health issues and it was just his time. When the time came, this lady and her son had to sit and wait at home for a

    Love the "We won't investigate because there isn't any evidence" line. Isn't that EXACTLY what investigations are for? To discover evidence? So basically SOMEONE, in the Met Police decided that investigating Bojo's "meetings" was a politically dangerous move. Who, in the Met could that have been?

    You have to be pretty unpopular to “not be invited” to a party happening in your own house.

    I can totally relate to Boris. I too was incredibly busy working during the lockdowns in 2020, and on several different occasions several hundred of my friends had impromptu parties in my house without my knowledge.

    At the time I needed to sell my late mother’s house, but it was not possible to put a house up for sale due to lockdown rules, viewings and surveys were illegal. So I had to delay the sale for 6 months, which cost me £300 a month in Council tax for an empty house.

    The real question is “how many times will the Tory party let Johnson away with breaking the law?” seeing as he’s already broken it

    Has Murdoch said Johnson should go? Until that happens, it doesn't matter what the police do.

    So he needs somebody else to conduct an investigation, to tell him whether he attended an illegal party or not. That is the most ridiculous thing he has come out with so far, and that really really is saying something.

    The Met: we refuse to look for evidence of this crime by our mates in No 10 due to a lack of evidence…

    Would I be correct in thinking that, if the government chose to pay, it would do so through tax revenue (not the pockets of the people involved) and therefore, British people would be paying the fine? Oh, the irony...

    BoJoke never followed any rules, whether he made them himself or someone else. Just wondering why the police refused to investigate in the first place.
