  • Published on Jan 13, 2022
  • Downing Street staff held 'wine-time Fridays' throughout the pandemic with Boris Johnson regularly witnessing the gatherings.
    Sources told the Mirror that the Prime Minister encouraged aides to “let off steam” despite indoor socialising being banned under lockdown rules.
    The regular event was so popular that staff even invested in a £142 drinks fridge to keep their bottles of white wine, Prosecco and beer cool.

    I always wanted a new series of 'In the thick of it', but I never expected to get live episodes available every single day. Bojo and his administration are fantastic at consistently putting out comedy content.

    And there was people that were fined thousands for "letting off steam" with no real way to pay the debt, ruining their lives. How can anyone take this guys seriously from this point on.

      @Digger T Rock Well any ridiculous fines should he repaid, the PM and Conservative Party removed/banned from ever working in the Government that's it as Lockdowns were necessary at the time just because Boris didn't pay attention to it doesn't mean we shouldn't at all it's not his idea Lockdowns during a pandemic have existed for many centuries not some brand new way made up by Boris.

      @Steven Peacock Very true. It's indefensible and very short-sighted. Regardless of the reality of what they were doing and whether or not it was technically within the rules, they should have known that if it ever got out how bad it would look, and if there's one thing people don't like, it's when MPs don't practice what they preach. You can see how many people this has riled up - people who usually don't follow politics are jumping on the outrage bandwagon.

      @MR You are a fool. They are all overpaid. The PM is on well over £100,000 a year for scrwwing the country up. MP's are near that mark too. Plus they claim expenses, which quite a few expence claims do not need receipts so claims are boosted. They used to be allowed (probably more now as it was a few years ago) £50 dinner allowance. They get paid so much per day for turning up at Parliament / Westminster. All they have to do it turn up and show their face and go back home. They get travel allowances there and back. Their annual expenxes are more than good paid workers earning over the minimum wage. Just google PM and MP wages. It is all public knowledge.

    To me what is more amazing is the fact that tax rises, corruption allegations, bending parliamentary procedures to save one of their own, perpetual lies, etc. weren't the things people cared more about... but drinking became a big issue which might end BoJo's PM career.... that for me is a sign that the population of this country doesn't care greatly about the politics that shapes our daily lives. [I understand the wider point around these parties, but I am making a different observation than the one that is axiomatic to all.]

I fear people will forget next time they have to choose. I'm 23 and I've seen how destroyed the NHS is through my health problems, austerity, the ppe scandal, the general lying and corruption thats clearly on display, I'm terrified of these guys getting another 5 or 10 years, we'd be fucked.

    It would also appear that Kier Starmer who repeatedly called for the the lockdown measures to be even harsher was himself hosting drink parties in his home with colleagues. We should expect some resignations from the opposition benches that were calling for Boris to resign. The Metropolitan police have a duty to investigate all of these matters and have absolutely no need to wait for a civil servants report. In fact a chief constable of another police force should be appointed to investigate this, what would now appear, as widespread among our lawmakers. This is a national disgrace.

    Like when he boasts about the vaccine rollout, jobs, anti virals etc., most if not ALL was achieved by other people, not him personally. BUT, sanctioned drinks and parties were definitely him.

      @Kenneth Eke I do not know whether they are allowed to talk about what they see in Number 10, but you would have thought there would have been a whistle blower in there somewhere.

It was hard every day not knowing if my finance will be paid off or I'll be asked to pay them directly. A lot of people couldn't attend their family friend funeral and so much more. What a f*ing disgrace. Speechless 😥

      Exactly this.
      Me and my wife could not get married in the UK, we had a ceromony booked and it all got cancelled, her visa to come here and get married from Spain expired.
      Then my wife's follow up visa from Spain got delayed by 7 Months due to covid and she ended up giving birth in Spain. Everything was set in stone for us and our child to be together in 2020 and it all got fucked by the restrictions.
      What pisses me off as it does for many others is that this is all one big slap in our face.
      I will never vote Tory again in my life. Heck, I'm not voting ever again. It's all a SHAM.

    I honestly have to say this, and I don't know if I am in the minority, and this is not meant to marginalise the loss of the pandemic.
    But I cannot take this scandal seriously as news. The idea that people want to topple the government or at least the current prime minister because they did not stick to a no party rule is quite silly to me. Yes they did not practice what they preached, but the amount of attention, focus and the sheer demands for apology on this whole event is honestly just insane.
    Yes slap them on the wrist, yes be upset. But the whole drive by the media to keep pushing this as the greatest scandal that ever was is honestly like watching a wet fart deflate.
    I get that many are angry over the pandemic, lost loved ones and a feeling of a unfair lockdown. But at the end of it I am sitting here looking at the media make this out to be the greatest betrayal of trust in the modern age.
