The latest allegations about the lockdown-era rallies in Downing Street sparked a furious backlash on Tuesday’s headlines.
The normally pro-Boris Johnson Express launches a full blast warning in its title: “Enough Boris! You MUST end the partygate farce now, ”he said, reflecting the exasperation of the backbench Tories at the drip of damaging reporting on the No. 10 Staff Party.
the To post takes a similar line and says “Boris shaken by new party revelations”, recalling the inequity felt by people across Britain with a caption that reads: “Email proves that a key assistant invited 100 Downing Street employees to party with the Prime Minister – when the public could only meet one person outside ”.
Others are more scathing with the I picking up a particularly infuriating line from the leaked email invitation to the May 20 rally. “‘Bring your own alcohol'”.
The same line is used by the Guardian as well as with its main story ‘Fury as email unlock No 10’ bring your own booze ‘lock party’.
the Mirror describes the email as “Invite to do what you love,” while the subway offers a pun – “Downing it Street” – alongside a photo of Johnson drinking a pint of beer.
The coverage contrasts with that of The Times and The Telegraph, neither of which chose to lead the party’s disclosures.
the Time has the story on its front page – “No10 celebrated the ‘good weather’ with an evening of locking drinks” – but led to the loosening of the boundaries of athletic events.
Same as Telegraph, which says “Johnson got an invitation to a lockdown party” but leads to cabinet anger at the misleading isolation guidelines.
