Boris on brink: Andrew Neil says PM has just made an almighty gamble

The politicial commentator called out the Prime Minister for insisting the event was a “work event” rather than a party. He tweeted: “Starmer calls on Johnson to resign several times. Johnson says to wait for the inquiry. Means he’s placing his future on what that inquiry concludes. Quite a gamble. Maybe no alternative.

“Quite hard to argue that a bring your own booze invitation was a work event rather than a party.”

When pressured to resign during this afternoon’s Prime Minister’s Questions Mr Johnson said that he would not pre-empt the findings of an independent inquiry into parties at his office during coronavirus lockdowns.

He told parliament: “I know the rage they feel with me, and with the government I lead, when they think that in Downing Street itself the rules are not being properly followed by the people who make the rules.”
