The Prime Minister was forced to say sorry during Prime Minister’s Questions today (Wednesday, January 12).

Boris Johnson admits rule-breaking party

Just a few weeks ago, the UK was stunned to learn that the Tories enjoyed a Christmas party in December 2020, when the rest of the country was in lockdown.

Now details of another alcohol-filled party have emerged.

Thanks to a leaked email, people now know that over 100 people attended a party in the 10 Downing Street garden on May 20, 2020, during a lockdown.

The email told them to “bring your own booze”.

Today, during a heated Prime Minister’s Questions, Boris finally owned up to attending the party and apologised. Sort of.

“I know the rage they [the people] feel with me and with the government I lead when they think in Downing Street itself the rules are not being properly followed by the people who make the rules,” he said.

The Prime Minister then explained that the reason so many had been in the garden was because it’s an extension of his office.

“When I went into that garden just after six on 20 May 2020, to thank groups of staff before going back into my office 25 minutes later to continue working, I believed implicitly that this was a work event,” he said.

“With hindsight, I should have sent everyone back inside. I should have found some other way to thank them.”
