Peter Bone: “People on the doorstep want to talk about Ukraine and the cost of living...people are much more likely to want to talk to me about the abolition of the BBC licence fee than Boris.” #newsnight

Peter Bone: “It’s a very funny party - less than 10 minutes with people you already work with all the time. And you know what political people are like, probably talking about work over the cake.” #newsnight

. @peterkyle : “We’re seeing these scandals intersecting. The decorator who was upstairs spending £130,000 of other people’s money on the Downing St flat was invited downstairs to a party.” #Newsnight

By coincidence, my partner shares a birthday with the Prime Minister (19th June). We marked it in 2020 by inviting one other household to sit outside, socially distanced, in our garden. It didn't occur to us - literally couldn't conceive - that we would act outside the rules.

And with each revelation, and the longer this goes on, each event has to tally with what has already been said, esp with what the PM has said in the House. The possibility that that proves not to be the case (as videos explain) remains pre-eminent threat to BJ’s premiership.

Thing is any individual part of the overall story may be explicable to the public. But one of No 10’s big problems at this point is that there’s so much to explain.

Nothing from No 10 here about whether event was within rules and therefore whether it tallies with what PM/No 10 has said previously.

And no10 says: "A group of staff working in No 10 that day gathered briefly in the Cabinet Room after a meeting to wish the Prime Minister a happy birthday. He was there for less than ten minutes.”
