Downing Street’s arrogance in the face of Partygate shows why Boris must go – Record View


Even after their cover had been blown, the Downing Street revellers carried on rubbing the public’s nose in the dirt.

The sheer arrogance of their behavior shows that this is a mob who knows their time is up and are celebrating like they were in the last days of the Roman Empire.

Even after the shame heaped on them for breaking lockdown with two parties on the eve of Prince Philip’s funeral, even after dragging the reputation of the highest office in the land through the mud, let alone the tarnished character of its occupant, they feel they have not done enough damage.

The Prime Minister lied to cover it up, because that is what comes to him habitually.

He was caught out and acted out a humble apology.

But no one is fooled.

Johnson and the rotten culture he has fostered must be swept away to restore some trust in the office he has tarnished.
