    Boris: There’s no party.

    Also Boris: Sorry for the way the party was perceived by the public. But the party doesn’t exist until proven by this independent investigator, who is also a civil servant.

    jack Watson epic says:

    He denied it at first
    and now he’s apologising so what other things has he lied about ?

    jack Watson epic says:

    @Doctor Panigrahi the whole CUNTServitives party needs to go
    Nevermind second chances if that was me or yourself
    Then we wouldn’t get a second chance
    Would we
    so why them ? But there is still people out there
    it doesn’t matter what they do they will still defend them

    Mark Lapeña says:

    @jack Watson epic exactly. We all know that if a party happened in a council block, the Met would be investigating it, trying to slap them with fines and any legislative penalties that they could think of. But because it was at Downing Street, we get an independent investigation.

    jack Watson epic says:

    @Kojo Mack I think liberal will be rubbing their hands thinking well no one’s going to vote CUNTservative nobody is going to vote Labour , So”

    jack Watson epic says:

    @Mark Lapeña that’s why I keep saying they’re out of touch with reality

    Ar co says:

    Politicians only apologise when there is no way or excuse available anymore.

    Avi Chetri says:

    @blackdiamond1058 We have had a tory led govermnet for a decade. It’s the Blue bois.

    childofthe60s100 says:

    Lying is their M.O.

    Apologising is their last resort.

    L Vincent says:

    They only apologise when caught and cornered.

    isabelle white says:

    True, but in this case …. there was NO apology!!!

    Bartley Hood says:

    Your right…….😂😂

    Seabookie L says:

    How can anyone listen to someones rules when he himself can’t! What kind of people do this? Have we lost all our dignity and moral? And why can’t we do anything about it? Think people! Think.

    Martyn Heaney says:

    Welcome to the real world. It’s been like this for decades

    Lena Krupinski says:

    Mms is controlled by the most powerful ,rich ) on this planet.nothing on the news is allowed without their say so.it’s all a distraction and Boris is playing his part.They are playing the people who believe msm) you cannot trust anything you hear on msm .whoever controls the media controls the mind.Jim morrison .he knew a lot about the goverments. Also Jordan Maxwell can wake people up to the way this planet is being controlled or should I say the masses.💚💚💚💚 don’t let them fool you any longer🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Lena Krupinski says:

    @Blood Angel the inner revolution is needed first.🙏🙏🙏🙏

    Jay R. says:

    Bla bla bla. Go cry me a river.

    Robot Shaz says:

    Can’t expect others to follow the rules when Boris broke the rules himself. Also, I lost my stepdad I did during the pandemic and getting a funeral arranged was a nightmare but it is perfectly ok for Boris to go out partying.

    Paul Sage says:

    @Lazra I find losing faith in a PM because there was a garden party for civil servants at No.10 , while many “NHS Hero’s” were tick toking all long , a load of boll*cks from someone who probably never supported him

    Paul Sage says:

    @isabelle white they were at work , we were allowed to go to work ,I went to work , it was drinks in a garden

    TheBooban says:

    Who in their right mind can follow these stupid rules! Not even people making them can. Just to please virtue signalers like you! You all suck.

    Mary Weir says:

    Shows how much this man truly cares about the people of this country.

    Kira Rayment says:

    What a time to have a prime minister like him!

    kingintyellow says:

    @William Denny Virtually every person in the country was directly affected by the lockdown. The only ones that seemed not to be were politicians and their mates, like Cummings.

    Essentially the ruling party said ‘stay in your houses, wear masks, close your businesses, keep indoors or you will be fined’, and then drive around the country to tourist spots and held boozy parties while everyone else went without.

    This is also not about ONE lie. Boris has been nothing but bluff and bluster since he was elected, with lie after lie, scandal after scandal. Take Cummings again, for instance. He elbowed his way into SAGE meetings and tried to politicise the virus. Boris did nothing. He drove up and down the country during lockdown. Boris did nothing. He held a press conference in Number 10 like HE was PM and told everyone he could break the rules when he liked and Boris STILL did nothing. Only when his latest in a string of mistresses got upset at Cummings was he given the boot.

    Same with all the other scandal-hit members of Boris’ cabinet. They get caught, refuse to resign, he backs them to the hilt, then the papers call him out on it and he U-turns. Same with a lot of his policies.

    You ARE excusing politicians when you say this is what we should expect. NO. We should expect better. And until they are held accountable for openly lying – which I will remind you is the case here – then that will never change.

    Boris’ replacement should be an MP we can trust. They should be from a party we can trust. We should not be left picking between lying scum based on how impactful the lie is on our personal lives.

    But you are arguing that a) Boris shouldn’t be replaced because we should expect all MP’s to lie and cheat and b) that his replacement should not be held to a higher standard either. Well WHEN are we going to see this change with that attitude?

    Gavin Gas says:

    @Editor And I can laugh at your chavy, poorly informed, thick comments too. I see the university of nowhere has educated you finely, as well.

    Gavin Gas says:

    @Editor you’re too thick to understand my hilarious wit. Lol. Daft chav. Comedy’s subjective, spaztard.

    Editor says:

    @Gavin Gas LOL (at you)

    eilidh says:

    I regret we didn’t do things differently…. now that we have been caught up till that point it was great

    Qamar says:

    I speak as a traditional Tory, behind the pantomime and theatrics I couldn’t see him completing a full term in office. Even before the COVID phenomenon one could safely state some sort of scandal would force him to resign. However, I also think he will try to weather the storm and be too proud to resign.

    Allosaurus Fragilis says:

    There’s nothing in his past behaviour that suggests anything different. It’s always lying, being vague about everything, opportunism, narcissism and saying whatever suits. The prime minister should be a person of integrity anc set a good example. If they don’t, who will?

    Shaheen Chaudhry says:

    He locked us all in, gave billions of our hard payers tax money, threatened us all with heavy fines, jail sentences, yet He and his cronies breaching all rules and regulations, sheer utter disgrace and shame!

    Kaleem Akbar says:

    🤬🤬🤬

    Alex Fisher says:

    one of the weirder things about this is them expecting us to believe there weren’t more parties that we just havent been told about

    Lyla Rose says:

    Guaranteed the very people who are demanding his resignation were partying as well. Britain needs to release their videos of them partying as well and they probably didn’t even social distance.

    Michael Myers says:

    If he genuinely, actually believes it was a work meeting, then why is he apologising? You only apologise if you’ve done something WRONG 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 just resign, this is excruciating.

    Jonathan 916 says:

    Whether you agree with lockdowns or not, I think that we can all agree that imposing a set of rules/laws on the public while exempting yourself from them is totally unacceptable.

    Robbo Max says:

    @Lyegorath
    I think you’re maybe missing the elephants in the room. It’s not about a slightly flawed single individual. There are 600+ elected members, who are supposed to represent the people who all went AWOL and allowed:
    1. unalianiavle rights and freedoms (enshrined in international treaties) to be removed/ curtailed;

    2. the economy to be destroyed (with small business and certain sectors being decimated);

    3. education of the young to be materially disrupted ;

    4. The NHS to be even further decimated than has been happening over recent years/decades, with less access to doctors and increased waiting lists;

    5. The restriction of people from seeing their elderly relatives and those elderly relatives from seeing the few people left in their lives that loved them;

    6. Society to become 2 – tiered and discrimation encouraged

    7. The population to be coerced into taking unnecessary experimental medical interventions with zero medium & longterm safety data,

    To name just a few. And now after 20+ months of being posted missing in action, they retddn to the chamber (and democracy) they abandoned to grandstand about a poxy drinks party and act like they have integrity and are speaking on behalf of the nation. The whole lot of them are an absolute F#@&ing disgrace, along with the whole of the mainstream media who have been complicit in the destruction of society & democracy.

    Julie Blais says:

    He had a party because he knows covid is a lie…99.9% recovery

    THE WISEFOOL says:

    Covid was blown up beyond belief!!! It would have taken 3months to get out of, but certain ppl in the government seen pound signs and turned it into a racket.

    Jiren-the-Grey says:

    @Asgdfgerdeh still unacceptable

    Jiren-the-Grey says:

    @Lyegorath regular people who break the law are not responsible for over 68,429,595 people in a country, so don’t upsolve him, he’s the one who wanted the position, nobody forced him so it’s his responsibility and if can’t take his responsibility seriously then he should just resign…people have lost lives, wealth and their freedom. This isn’t a playground where you can just reset and restart. His mistakes and carelessness has consiquence. He fines people for breaking the rules yet he breaks the rules….and that shows that he breaks the rules all the time he just got Cought this time..

    missjimmyt88 says:

    His face when he said “I thought I was at a work event ” even he looked like he didn’t believe his own lie and was smirking cause of how ridiculous he sounds.
    How anyone has confidence in him is beside me, seriously 🤦‍♀️
    this whole thing going on has just been the government dishing out apologies for being the biggest hypocrites going cause they can’t stick to their own guidelines, it’s laughable

    Richard says:

    wish American politics was more like this. Yeah I admit its comical to watch but its way more straightforward in rhetoric when the MP’s are getting their points across. Plus the face to face back and forth with the countries leader is great.

    He’d only ever be good in fair weather Not much else sadly.

    DRSHANKER says:

    @sara richardson what has he done that was good? And it doesn’t count if a tory donor benefits. I’ll wait

    Fred says:

    As a university student this situation is unbelievably infuriating. Around the time 10 downing street had their drinks party, I was stuck in university halls in a tiny room paying an obscene amount of money (an issue in itself) for what was basically just mental health deterioration. I was fined £800 for meeting some friends (from my halls) inside their room, all whilst Borris was having his “Bring your own booze party”. As well as be embarrassing for the conservative party this situation really highlights the one rule of the rich motto. Shame on those who took part in the party and I hope justice is served (although it won’t be).
