Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

I think we need to stage an intervention at this point. It seems Whitehall is smashed all the time.

You surely didnít think this was the behaviour of people who are normally sober?

Equally as wrong.

Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

Do we think that’s a bottle of the old wife beater? Seems more apt for a politician the neighbours phone the police on. Although not since he got new neighbours.

The scenario where Johnson survives is fairly simple. The Gray report, which Johnsonís allies are busy building up, is an anticlimax, refusing to say whether the prime minister should resign or opine on whether or not he broke the rules (Sue Grayís remit is more to establish the facts than to pass judgment).

Sounds familiarÖ
But that is fair enough. It is the facts we need to know. And if itís as bad as it looks, we all know how that will end.

Heís not a Conservative in any traditional sense. His unification of the party related to one issue, and one only. One that he seized the opportunity of after famously penning two articles such was his lack of conviction for either side of the argument.

A populist is only useful to the extent they remain popular. And the mask has well and truly slipped

You go around in circles, jfman, that was answered ages ago. Boris clarified that he wrote two articles to clarify in his mind which was the better of the two options, and thatís when he realised that Brexit would be best for Britain.

Borisís popularity has taken a nosedive, but he will bounce back again. He always does.

Theyíve apologised, but perhaps they are waiting for the findings of the Sue Grey Enquiry before they tell us what they are apologising for, as they donít want to pre-judge?
Sounds reasonable. Boris is truly mystified at what is being alleged and what he has done wrong.

Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

People have asked why none of the officers policing Downing Street noticed/reported any of these "work meetings with suitcases of wine"?

Who will ever know?

On a totally unrelated note, here is an article from the October 2020 edition of the Spectator, about a Met Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner who was "the Ďexecutive leadí for frontline policing on Covid".
