MPs across the House of Commons are demanding immediate answers on whether Boris Johnson attended a drinks event in the Downing Street garden during lockdown in the UK.

A leaked email, obtained by ITV News, from Mr Johnson’s principal private secretary, Martin Reynolds, invited around 100 staff to “socially distanced drinks in the No 10 garden” on 20 May 2020 – when lockdown rules in England banned large outdoor gatherings.

The Prime Minister has so far declined to say whether he went to the drinks.
On Wednesday he’ll face MPs at Prime Minister’s Questions.

The invitation encouraged people to “bring your own booze” and “make the most of the lovely weather”.

BBC Outside Source’s Ros Atkins looks at what the latest discovery means for the British prime minister.

  1. Hurrah, Boris and his party!

  2. Now, watch Sue Gray deliver a big bucket of whitewash for all concerned.

  3. Who pays for all this wine ?

  4. He just loves to have people around him. He loves people. ^^

  5. right so we have the choice between a party against the rules with no respect to the people from the uk or a working gathering with alcohol where decisions were taken for millions of people by drunk governors. Do we really want the total fail of this country???

  6. 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂 this is bloody Madding
    I'll have a glass of wine🍷 crisp if I so please good day to you sir🍾🧐

  7. If the event in the Downing Street garden was work-related, why was BORIS' wife and baby in attendance? I suspect that although the email was sent by a senior adviser, the idea might have been planted by Carrie Johnson – it seems to me like the sort of thing that she would suggest.

  8. I suppose a LEAVING DRINKS PARTY is in order then! for all who were at this illegal party in a lockdown.

  9. There has been a lot of mis-management so far since the beginning of this crisis worldwide. If a person working for a company would have made these kinds of unprofessional mistakes, he/she would have been fired since a long time. Why is it different for leaders who are supposed to play more important role in respect to a population where they need to set examples and where governing is foreseeing things in times of crisis? But so far it has not been the case and at this point the best asset of each countries IS NOT AND WILL NEVER BE a group of people pretending they could lead a country when they obviously have not been able to do so. It's the man power who will have to work hard to re-build the economy. Journalists, representatives of the law should not forget that. You are the best lobbyists of our cause right now during this pandemic and you should think what is the best for the survival of your country and not for those amateurs… We are being imposed very hard measures and have to pay fines. And we don't need unethical leaders who can't setting examples or who have so far been opting for trial and errors since the beginning of the pandemic.

  10. Well matt hancock advised neighbours to rat on each other for lockdown partys looks like someones ratted on Boris and his many partys.

  16. Police Blocking ,Your Head On The Chopping Block.

  17. Looks like politicians go by the addage of 'do as I say, not as I do'. No wonder people despise them.

  18. Now the rats in the bilge of the good ship " Tory Party " are preparing to scamper down the mooring ropes in order to find the safety of dry land . I fear it is curtains for Bozo .😀

  19. Wow. Go Boris! What an alcoholic! 🥳

  20. Royal Family: How Can We deflect our negative media attention on sex rings?
    Me: Why Not Just push it all onto the Government that you choose to run your country lol 🤣

  21. keep waking up and coming together people!

    The plandemic always was a big joke to these currupt lying hypocrites

  22. We are supposed to trust him to run the country…….he doesn’t even know if he was at a party or not!? ….that’s who is running our country?? 😳

  23. I think the media have over played there hand. The other so called parties that the media have been pushing had nothing to do with Boris.

  24. Sue Gray to reveal who broke Wilf's swing!
    The Nation is waiting!

  25. Too much time has passed…..stop this nonsense 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Boris should not have made it to PM.

    He is corrupt, arrogant and contemptuous.

    A product of aristocracy.
    Can at no time do wrong.
    Look at him, he still has not the scruples to let go of power.
    It is just a boys game in his head.

    We cannot let hypocrites into power, they normalise gaslighting and false narrations with spinning yarns.

    No completely unethical, reset and start again.

    Wipe the slate clean.

    Boris cannot handle power without abusing it.

  26. I feel sorry for all those who stuck to the rules and made sacrifices. I saw the news just now, the Queen, sitting on her own after loosing her husband, sticking to the rules. She is no different to us.
    It appears (not sure) one party was on the eve of Prince Phillips funeral? Perhaps she will step in on Boris etc. She has cut her son out so….
    Such a shame its all come to this.

  27. A lying leader is a terminal ailing politician.

    To pacify his voters, British PM should step down on his own accord when there is still a bit of dignity left, lest be forced to quit unceremoniously in the near future..

  28. Why should we lison to him when keep messaging up all the time

  29. "All the the the the guidelines were followed" ….. oh Boris do your self a favour and watch a recording of yourself. It's not good. There's no confidence at all. He's just scurrying to hide away.

  30. Boris needs to go, they did this last year. He is a useless PM, he comes off as an immature, over grown school boy. He needs sacking.

  31. This parliament makes you sick to your stomach we require truthful people not those that are feeding us lies and abusing the laws and system. We need a reform of new parliamentary people that stick to their words it's hard to be optimistic

  32. 😷 Do you remember a retired nurse and members of her family being arrested for removing her elderly mother from a Care Home, to go and live with them?
    The family members, who were high qualified to care for their own relative, were arrested, and the dying, elderly
    grandmother was forced to go back into solitary confinement in the care home.
    It was an evil travesty for thousands of elderly people, imprisoned by the state, and by care homes – whilst Boris
    and chums were holding illegal parties.
    No one should be surprised that there has always been one rule for the peasants & another for the elites. 🤬👎🏾🤨

  33. "THE GREAT RESET" BY PROFESSOR WALTER VEITH AND MARTIN SMITH YOU TUBE POWERFUL POWERFUL WATCH FROM SOUTH AFRICA ENJOY 🙏🏾😃💯❤️

  39. will he not just cover it up ?

  40. I find it funny, the same mob criticising Boris for a slip up were all out and out rule breaking through summer, partying and socialising. Yes, hospital's have rules, I found that difficult myself. Do I think Boris should go? No, and I've never trusted any politician, but I can say thank you for a vaccine.
    The greedy communists at it again.

  41. Funny how this is a serious matter in the UK. In my country No one would even raise anything like that once the president is involved. Lol.
