Internet lays into Boris Johnson over Sue Gray’s inquiry into Number 10 parties

Lines between politics and fiction in England have become a little blurred in 2022, making the current landscape looking like the painfully on-point satire The Thick Of It.

It is only the middle of January and, so far, Downing Street has had to say ‘sorry’ to the Queen for holding two staff parties on the night before the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh in April 2021.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was also forced to apologise for attending the ‘bring your own booze’ bash in Number 10 on May 20, 2020 – which he claims was a ‘work event’ – while Covid-19 restrictions were in place.

Senior civil servant Sue Gray is heading a potentially explosive inquiry into the suspected rule-breaking in Number 10.

She is expected to determine whether the prime minister – otherwise known as her boss – is in the wrong.

It is fair to say, we are a little on edge as to what the rest of the year will bring.

In a truly British style, here is what people on the internet have had to say about the absurdity of the current political life.

Since the revelations about the months of partying, people who were slapped with hefty fines for breaching Covid-19 law have taken to social media to ask for their money back.

Others are questioning why the Metropolitan Police is refusing to investigate the gatherings.

But the force said last night that it was its policy to not ‘normally investigate’ such violations ‘long’ after they had happened.

A spokesperson for the prime minister confirmed Number 10 apologised to Buckingham Palace, adding: ‘It is deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning and No 10 has apologised to the Palace.

‘You heard from the PM this week, he’s recognised No 10 should be held to the highest standards, and take responsibility for things we did not get right.’
