Boris likened to a ‘toddler who has been forced into an apology, gets caught and runs off protesting the unfairness of it all’

A former aide to Boris Johnson has described the Prime Minister as a child and the parties at Downing Street during lockdown as a “bit of a frat party” following the Sue Gray report.

Will Walden who is a former staff member to Johnson said it is a “sad day” after the report revealed Downing Street staff were “vomiting on the walls,” fighting and spilled wine.

Walden said, “Honestly, I feel pretty depressed this morning. It’s a sad day.

“The UK prides itself on exporting democracy around the world but I just think it’s a bad day for democracy, I think the detail of this report is absolutely appalling.

“The partying, people vomiting on the walls. There was even… some sort of fight at the height of lockdown.

“This is at the heart of the government of our country and I think, brutally speaking, it’s a bit of a frat party.

“I think it’s bad enough happening inside Number 10 outside the pandemic, let alone during it.

“I think ultimately the prime minister has to bear responsibility for that.”

Walden said that Johnson repeatedly tried to minimised his involvement when he apologised in the House of Commons for the Downing Street parties on Wednesday.

He then likened Johnson to “some sort of toddler who has been forced into an apology, gets caught and runs off protesting the unfairness of it all.”

“I think you have to be fairly blind not to notice music pumping out in the middle of the night, or bottles strewn everywhere or bottles on the wall,” Walden added.

“My feeling from reading the report yesterday… is that Downing Street, unlike the rest of the country, was a bubble of normality.”
