Social media users have flooded Twitter with hilarious memes mocking the Downing Street garden party after a bombshell email proved workers were told to bring their own drinks to the gathering at the height of lockdown.
It is understood that around 40 staff – thought to include the PM and his wife Carrie – met for drinks and food from 6pm on May 20, 2020, at a time when only two people were allowed to socialise outside while two metres apart under national Covid curbs.
A bombshell email leaked on Sunday proved that Boris Johnson’s principal private secretary Martin Reynolds invited more than 100 staff to bring their own drinks to No10’s lavish gardens to ‘make the most of the lovely weather’.
Scotland Yard has confirmed that they are now ‘in contact with the Cabinet Office’ over reports of the drinks party. The force is reportedly waiting to see if Sue Gray’s inquiry identifies rule-breaking before considering if further action is needed.
Today social media users took to Twitter after the latest allegations to share hilarious memes as Mr Johnson’s government fights claims No10 staff broke lockdown rules.
Some Twitter users shared hectic scenes from musical festivals and compared them to the alleged No10 garden party, while others posted memes suggesting Scotland Yard are sweeping allegations under the carpet.
