Partygate & Beergate discussion
 
Not sure if this belongs here or it should be in it's own thread.

The Christmas Party shenanigans, should heads roll? if so, whose?

Mod edit (Chris): A new thread, I think. Lots of posts moved.

As much as I would love to see that happen, i think it's more likely a sacrifice will be made.

The government hiding this morning is interesting. I'd have a lot more time for them if they came out and said. yes, we did it, we apologise (which we know means nowt) and we're going to donate 20k each personally to insert x charity here.

Looks like there was another party as well, and reese mogg has been caught out as well

What makes that video worse, other than that they spent a week denying it ever took place, is that they clearly knew what they were doing.

I can understand if a few staffers who had to work in No 10 anyway, were in close proximity anyway, decided to have a few drinks after work. Yes it still would have been illegal under their own rules but you can sort of understand how it naturally comes about.

But the video shows an intentional understanding they would flaunt their own rules and then laugh about it. They really are quite brazen about it all.

Indeed, If Starmer can't capitalise on this then he should be gone... it's an open goal

Watching Sky News and they're stating Boris was there... as he gave a speech

I think that was a "leaving do", the previous week.

Boris is expected to lie cheat and manipulate the rules, will it hurt him? no.
He will just waffle out some gibberish at pmq's that bares no resemblance to the subject under question as he usually does.

They had the party to test their eyesight.

Why does that justify the behaviour ?

Anyone still think Boris will make it past 2022?

They'll probably ditch Charles and make him the next king.

Then if not an attempt as justification what was the point of your question?
