Rees-Mogg was mistaken: Met Police launches new probe into Covid-19 lockdown breaches by Tories

Jacob Rees-Mogg: it’s all one big amusement to him.

Jacob Rees-Mogg made an ill-fated assertion that was caught on video.

He said a Christmas party that broke Covid-19 rules would not be investigated by the police:

It turns out he was mistaken:

The Metropolitan Police has launched a new investigation into alleged lockdown-breaking parties in No 10 and other official residences during the pandemic.

The force issued an update on Monday saying it was “assessing information and new material” over gatherings in 2020 and 2021.

It includes fresh allegations of rule-breaking in Downing Street and at the Prime Minister’s Chequers countryside retreat in June 2020 and May 2021.

The Met Police will also investigate a Christmas party held by Conservative Party staff in December 2020, after video footage emerged of attendees dancing, drinking, and joking about “bending the rules”.

That’s going to take a lot of hard work, isn’t it? Here’s the video clip:

There are photos as well.


Won’t it be a shame if Shaun Bailey starts his time in the House of Lords by being fined as a common criminal?
