It’s one thing to laugh in the faces of voters. It’s another to laugh in the faces of 150,000 dead. Boris Johnson has done both.

An apology? An APOLOGY, Labour? Hundreds of people died while the Conservative hierarchy laughed. Don't miss another open goal, Keir Starmer, the country derserves you pushing for more than an apology. #downingstreetparty #OneRuleForThem

I'd imagine that the hellfire the PM is going to experience today and onwards on the #downingstreetparty would make moving the #COVID19 #PlanB for England more likely. Because he'll do anything to save face and detract from govt corruption. That's always been the priority.

#PMQs this week one of the most important since the last general election. - Wonder if the backbenches will abandon Johnson like they did over the Paterson affair? - Wonder how effective/angry/passionate Starmer will be? #downingstreetparty #allegrastratton

Apropos of nothing. Allegra Stratton is married to Spectator editor James Forsyth - the best man at Rishi Sunak's wedding. She worked on Robert Peston's ITV show alongside Cassian Horowitz, who is now special advisor to Sunak. This footage has now been leaked to ITV. A cosy club.

Johnson’s police dress-up might look comical but it’s deeply dangerous, signalling breakdown of vital separation of power in any democracy, placing PM in a directly dictatorial role, undermining both the independence of police & the integrity of his office. It must be called out

Interesting to note about the #downingstreetparty: - Cummings said only a few days ago that there were hacks there - Allegra Stratton is a former ITV employee & they've landed her in it Guest list and/or pictures from within the event could sink many #whoattendedtheparty

Hilarious if the thing that actually dethrones the bungler in chief Fridge Johnson is the #no10ChristmasParty and the Afghan animal airlift - not the deaths of 150,000 or the rampant corruption. What a world. #BorisTheLiar

The real lesson of the Afghanistan doglift is that if you want to get lobbying done without any consequences, don't pay an elected official like Owen Paterson, go straight to somebody that shares a bedroom with the most powerful person in the country. Just like mediaeval times!

@Dr_D_Robertson @chrischirp Striking that the govt have a "plan B" for Delta and despite rising Delta cases *and* a likely more rapidly transmissible Omicron variant, they have not implemented it. What is the purpose of contingency planning?

Everyone was saying that Emily Thornberry's move to Attorney General was a demotion. Given how much the government break the rules, she's actually one of the most important people in the shadow cabinet now.

Of course, so predictable that Labour just doubles down on the Tory's reactionary garbage over the #drugs. Shame on Yvette Cooper for this. Stop pandering to the part of your base that went UKIP and start representing a common sense alternative. Stop being so bad at politics 😑.

Dear Metropolitan Police, I know you are into that investigating stuff before it's happened malarkey, so I'd like to report a U-turn. Cheers!

Dear Met police, I’d like to report future crimes committed by Her Majesty’s Government. This will likely include cash for future peerages, using tax payers money for their own/mates advantage, and several breaches of any Covid measures they put in place for the plebs. Thanks.

Travel restrictions stop making sense once a pathogen is in circulation locally, as a few introduction from abroad won't contribute significantly to the local epidemic dynamic. They should be lifted as soon as local transmissions exceed the risk of introduction from abroad. 4/

Gove chatting about elected governors to further the levelling up agenda, when you are the party that's defunded local govt, and there's 900 unelected legislators sitting in the chamber next door. Absolute p1sstakers.
