Tories to vote on Boris Johnson Partygate report as outrage rises over Partygate video

Johnson’s attitude: satirists created this image in 2021 – and now we find that it was more or less accurate. The video of a lockdown-busting party demonstrates the first two elements, and the responses of Tories to criticism of it demonstrates the third. The people are incandescent with fury at this high-handed ‘one rule for you, another for us’ attitude, and are baying for Boris Johnson’s blood.

Another pal of Boris Johnson has been identified in the lockdown-busting party video that became public knowledge over the weekend:

She joins other identified Tories including Shaun Bailey (made a peer in Johnson’s honours) and Ben Mallet (given an OBE in Johnson’s honours). Bailey has tried to dismiss the matter out-of-hand – indicating that this entitled Tory twit doesn’t understand that he has absolutely no control over the news agenda and if the public is outraged, he’ll have to put up with it:

Elsewhere, questions have arisen over another video clip, in which Jacob Rees-Mogg (knighted in Johnson’s honours list) said a Christmas party that broke Covid-19 lockdown rules would not be investigated by police. Why was he so sure?

Rees-Mogg has apparently claimed “officials” told him to say the rules had been followed at all times.

It’s not looking good, is it?

There are other problems with Johnson’s honours list…

Add it all up and you get comments like this from Private Eye‘s Ian Hislop:

Calls for Johnson’s honours list to be rejected in toto have proliferated, but spineless prime minister Rishi Sunak has run away from the responsibility for dealing with this controversy dumped on his doorstep by his forerunner.

Sunak has also run like a rabbit from the responsibility of making his position clear on how his Tory MPs should vote on the recommendation of the Partygate Inquiry.

While all this is going on, it seems other matters may be going unnoticed.

For example:

Yes indeed.

What happened to all that PPE that Michelle Mone got the Tory government to buy, only to find it couldn’t be used?
