The former aide to the Prime Minister took to Twitter to hint at another bombshell about to explode on Mr Johnson. He tweeted: “Will the CABSEC also be asked to investigate the *flat* party on Fri 13 Nov, the other flat parties, & the flat’s ‘bubble’ policy…?”
However, Mr Johnson has rejected any claims that there was a party held in November last year.
Asked during PMQs by Catherine West MP about “whether there was a party in Downing Street on November 13”, Mr Johnson responded: “No that never happened, but I am sure the guidance and the rules were followed at all times.”
This is the latest in a string of accusations that the Prime Minister breached Covid rules by attending parties in Downing Street last year.
According to the Mirror, Mr Johnson gave a speech at a packed leaving do for a top aide last November when the country was in the grip of its second lockdown.
One source told the Mirror there were “many social gatherings” in Downing Street last year while the public faced restrictions.
They even suggested there were “always parties” in the flat Mr Johnson shares with his wife, adding: “Carrie’s addicted to them”.
There were also claims of a third, smaller gathering on November 13, the night Mr Cummings walked out of No 10, “where they were all getting totally plastered”.
Another source claimed: “While senior civil servants were urging caution and there was one message to the public, Prime Minister gave the impression that it could be very relaxed in No 10.
“He would either turn a blind eye or on some occasions attend himself while everyone else was in lockdown.”
