3. A party would have been illegal at that time.

4. If the investigation finds otherwise all political hell will break loose.

Not technically true, many a Friday afternoon office meeting has been spent with beers & spirits. the joys of working for a startup. Ah, how i miss them

No, it doesn't destroy all his views on Brexit.

Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

Teflon Boris will ride this out. Labour aren’t really making any ground, and there isn’t anybody in the Tory party making any ground on him either.

Regardless of anything the Tories want to win the next election, Boris will only be challenged if it looks like he can’t win and/or someone with better prospects magically appears.

Labour have taken the lead for a sustained few weeks in the polling now. I don't think the idea Johnson is a vote winner for the Tories holds true anymore. The party's polling has gone down, his own ratings have tanked and most people want him to resign it seems.

Have you had a chance to look at the various polls over the last few months? If not, then pour yourself a good strong drink before doing so!

Anyway, wonder what's next on Cummings leak list ....

Crikey, you and Chris are in total agreement.

This truly is the thread that keeps on giving.

What views? He took ages to decide which side he was on and wrote a pro remain article for the Times https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sta...296.html%3famp
He then saw the power opportunity for himself and grabbed it just like the latest bit of skirt.
He has no belief in anything.

Re: All those No.10 lockdown parties

So, in summary, Johnson has gone from -

1) Denying there were parties
2) Saying that even if parties happened, all COVID rules were followed
3) Saying he personally didnít break rules
4) Denied he attended a party
5) Denying knowledge the party he attended was a party.

And as for his "apology" - it was basically "I hope you donít realise that I am apologising for people misunderstanding what was happening, and if they thought I had done something wrong, iím sorry they felt that way"Ö

So what your saying is it was a workplace meeting.

Polls, polls, and more polls, we'll see what happens when the election comes up.
