  • Boris Johnson is under pressure to say whether or not he attended a party in the Downing Street garden during the first covid lockdown in May 2020.

    The Prime Minister has not denied being there, but is insisting that he won't comment before a senior civil servant has completed an investigation.

    But today the leader of the Scottish Conservatives said there's no reason for the prime minister to refuse to answer such a basic question. And if the answer is 'yes', he could no longer give him his support.

    There was a policeman outside No 10 who would have been aware of party guests arriving, standing with his back turned on a crime being committed. Basically he was a glorified club bouncer. So what chance is there of an impartial police investigation?

    I wonder how many people find this funny? All those people who could not be with dying relatives in hospital. Who could not attend loved ones funerals on the day the PM was mixing with his mates at a party in Downing Street in Lockdown. When everyone else in the country who broke their laws were fined the government ( Public Servants who's wages are paid by the public) were laughing in their faces of the dead and dying.

    That needs self respect, dignity, moral and due duty whilst holding public office, which Boris lacks beyond any doubt

    A letter sent to Boris Johnson’s dad during his time at Eton College sums up Boris' character (or rather lack thereof) very well.

    I saw an interview today in which a Tory claimed that the people who attened the party had been busy working on the vaccine roll out and needed a break. I find this odd as the party was in May 2020 and the first vaccine was not even approved for use in the UK until December 2nd.

    We're talking about the man that can't tell the truth to a mirror...he need not worry, it'll be something else tomorrow. This is what happens when the electorate choice charisma over integrity 🙄
