The Prime Minister told MPs in the House of Commons that he attended the “bring your own booze” gathering, but he said he “believed implicitly that this was a work event” and only attended for around 25 minutes to “thank groups of staff.”
However, Ryanair was quick of the mark to ridicule the Prime Minister with a meme saying “I don’t know I am at a party.”
Boris Johnson added to MPs, that “with hindsight I should have sent everyone back inside, I should have found some other way to thank them, and I should have recognised that, even if it could have been said technically to fall within the guidance – there would be millions and millions of people who simply would not see it that way.”
Ryanair also tweeted a blistering attack on Johnson with an “official-Sensitive No.10 only inspired cocktail menu.”
On Tuesday, the former Tory attorney general Dominic Grieve has blasted Boris Johnson and said he has “told a series of untruths” and he should be removed from office.
Grieve was asked by the BBC over the latest allegations against Johnson, he said, “He ought to be in a lot of trouble because he’s told a series of untruths about these issues over a period of time and the latest evidence clearly suggests that the rules were broken.
The former attorney general said that the public has “little trust” in Johnson and then delivered a blistering attack, he said, “The difficulty we have here is that we have a prime minister who’s effectively a serial liar.”
