No 10 apologises to Queen over lockdown parties on eve of Prince Philip’s funeral

by News Update

This is not so much party politics but the politics of parties as Downing Street was forced to apologise to Buckingham Palace for the two parties held at Number 10 on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral – saying it was “deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning”.

Since then the apologies have come thick and fast: one from PM’s former communications chief James Slack over his leaving do. He now works at the Sun newspaper. While Kate Josephs – who was head of the government’s Covid taskforce – said she was “truly sorry” for drinks held in December 2020.

No word yet from Mr Johnson himself, who is supposed to be self-isolating from a family case of Covid in his Downing Street flat.

You don't have to be a Royalist to recognise the degree of insult and betrayal this is. We don't need the Russians, Chinese or the EU to destroy the UK – as they claim – when we are busy voting in these b******s to rule over us.

If he is taken out, which he should be, his WIFE should give back all the money she spent on ''redecorating'' and her £600+ new clothes.

Fingers crossed the woman second in command of labour with the motor mouth that loves her voice will be gone with good Jesus

Someone needs to interview the suitcase. "I was taken against my will, I swear. . One bottle cracked and liquid seeped all the way through my inner lining. I'll never be the same." 🥺

What the Government did very disrespectful of having a party a day before Prince Philips funeral if that happened to my family or friends I would of been really upset.

Gullible voters still won't realise that this is what the Tories essentially are, through and through selfish and greedy, and will still vote for them thinking the represent the 'better' class among us. Pah-leeze!

He's had to apologize to parliament, to the public and to the queen in one week. What a hat trick.

xphilli January 15, 2022 - 2:11 AM

Start handing out those £10,000 fines. Other people had to pay them, why not them?

guywerb January 15, 2022 - 2:12 AM

He's delivered Brexit? Well, yes, the lory queues and the empty shelves are there to proove it. He's rolled out the vaccination plan? As every other western European country, wouldn't you say? And by the way, even poor little Portugal did a better job in the end. That must hurt…

The police are going wait for evidence it already been show.n anyone else would have been fined at least or arrest he shouldn't.t be exception

Did you see the guy with the backpack full of booze?

There weren’t entertainment programming on TV for weeks when Prince Philip died and they partied the night before his funeral. What a liberty…

Piccalilli Pit January 15, 2022 - 2:18 AM

IS THIS 14 PARTIES NOW…??? I have genuinely lost count – it was 11 before the 2 and then there is the 1 – so thats 14…

James Sherburn January 15, 2022 - 2:18 AM

Hilarious to watch Truss' PM in waiting face.

Lloyd Benson January 15, 2022 - 2:20 AM

Only apology she should accept is his resignation

Dean F. January 15, 2022 - 2:21 AM

At least he delivered his manifesto promises though. .. oh wait a minute

WHY WERE THESE PARTYGOERS NOT TERRIFIED TO BREAK THE COVID RULES, THUS PUTTING THEIR VERY LIVES AT RISK??

A den of selfish brainless law beakers

They should face it head on "we work closely together, it's essential in order to run the country during a crisis, and to help morale and mental health we needed moments of decompression to release so we could maintain the fight against Covid, support the vaccine research, remember there are no vaccines at this time, and to make sure Britain was at the front of the queue for vaccines. I'm sure you remember the Europeans being late to securing vaccines, whereas we are not. Another win for Brexit, which we also delivered."

jon780249 January 15, 2022 - 2:23 AM

14! I wonder what the total will be next week?

Chris Chew January 15, 2022 - 2:23 AM

If I remember correctly it was a £10,000 fine for breaking covid rules, all those who attended should pay for every party they attended

cupguin January 15, 2022 - 2:23 AM

Didn't he apologized that people thought he was at a party? After all he said it was a "work event" and it was absolutely not outside the rules somehow. Which is odd since the rules weren't about "parties" but "gatherings" and a "work event" still sounds like a gathering to me.
