The REAL implications of PARTYGATE!! Opher’s views!!

A new set of photos have been released. They probably stem from dissatisfied minions who have been multiply fined, while their leaders and party organisers go free.

Lest we forget – the rules that Boris Johnson and his government had brought in at that time were draconian:

‘The rules prohibited indoor gatherings of two or more people. The police have confirmed that the fines handed out over this event were for breaching this restriction.

An exception was allowed if the gathering “was reasonably necessary” for work purposes’.

The fines for breaking these rules were capped at £6400!!

Bear in mind that people at that time were often isolated, all alone, trapped in their own houses. Sick people could not be visited. Friends could not meet up. Lovers were kept apart. Families were kept apart. Marriages could not take place. Funerals could not happen with any gathering. Dying people could not be visited.

These photos beg a number of questions: Was this a party? Was this a work meeting? Were all government guidelines being followed (masks, distancing, numbers)? Was the ‘party’ condoned by Boris Johnson? Did he lie to the House of Parliament and the country?

Context: Labour MP Catherine West asked: “Will the prime minister tell the House whether there was a party in Downing Street on 13 November [2020]?”

What Mr Johnson said: “No – but I am sure that whatever happened, the guidance was followed and the rules were followed at all times.”


Let’s break down his answer. The first part is the apparent denial that there was a party on 13 November 2020.’

My views:

Nobody can tell me that this was a work meeting or that guidelines were being followed. It was obviously a party and rules were manifestly being broken.

The clown who is currently our Prime Minister denied that there were any parties when he was actually present at a number of them! He’s a liar!

The clown knew there were parties being held at a time of strict lockdown. Instead of putting a stop to them he openly condoned them and joined in! He later lied to parliament about this! He’s a liar!

Being adorned with tinsel, smuggling in booze, being packed into a room with some people sitting on the laps of others is not a work meeting. It is a party. No covid guidelines were being followed. When the clown stated to the House of Commons that all Covid guidelines had been followed he knew they had not been. He lied.

The fact that the MET supposedly investigated this over a long period at huge expense and only handed out fines to the lesser minions is a scandal. The minions were chucked under a bus. The leaders who condoned the events and organised the parties should be the ones to pay! Is this an example of political interference? Police incompetence? Is the MET working with the Tories?

The fact that fines were so light compared with fines handed out to members of the public who contravened these laws is simply not right. There should surely be the same treatment for all.

While he placed us in strict lockdown with fear of draconian penalties he and his cronies felt themselves above this law, felt themselves free to meet up and party, and, as we saw from the Allegra Stratton snippet, were laughing at us. Johnson could easily have put a stop to these 21 parties. He didn’t. He condoned them and was present at a number of them!

Why wasn’t he fined for each transgression? It smacks of corruption!

Why the secret meeting with Sue Gray?? Was this more political pressure?

Why the extended cover-up by government ministers – trying to make out that this law-breaking and lying to parliament was trivial? Trying to suggest that there were more important issues? Trying to force the police to investigate Labour? Trying to suggest that Starmer’s working beer was the same as Johnson’s 21 ‘bring a bottle of booze’ parties? These ministers know he lied and are trying to distract and cover-up! They are culpable!! They should be ashamed of themselves and resign!!

What should happen now.

Johnson should resign immediately.

All politicians and top civil servants who organised or attended should resign immediately!

The MET should release all its criteria for NOT prosecuting Johnson and the Leaders. There should be an immediate investigation of their whole operation!

We should hold a general election and let the country appoint a new government!

We desperately need a competent government with integrity, one we can trust!

This bunch of over-privileged, lying, self-servers are corrupt, incompetent and dishonest. They need kicking out!!


When a Prime Minister lies to the public and lies to the House of Parliament it is a big thing!

A Prime Minister who lies is in no position to lead a country!

We have been given the full treatment by the Tory Party. They have tried to trivialise it as only a bit of birthday cake. It was not only a bit of cake! There were 21 parties with booze, quizzes and party hats. Johnson was at a number of them. This was a culture of breaking the law at a time when draconian rules were imposed on all of us. They behaved as if they were above the very laws they had imposed on us!

It is not trivial!

They have tried to make out that these 21 parties were the same as Starmer’s beer and curry. They weren’t! Starmer WAS at a work event. He did not hold quizzes or smuggle in booze in shopping trollies. He wasn’t wearing a party hat and he had not issued invites saying ‘BRING A BOTTLE’.

It is not comparable in any sense.

The Tories have tried to suggest that it was a hard-working team battling covid letting off steam at the office. It wasn’t! These were organised parties!!

They broke the law!! There were big gatherings and no social distancing. They knew. They were laughing about their law-breaking as we saw from Allegra Stratton’s practise press conference. They were taking us for mugs.

They tell us that it is time to move on, that there are more important things to deal with – Ukraine and the Cost-of-living. The truth is that there are enormous problems – and most of them have been caused by this incompetent twat of a greedy, selfish clown and his equally self-serving government.

Lying, incompetence and corruption are not things to move on from! The guilty people should all be sacked and replaced with honest, competent people we can trust – people who will work for us and not themselves!!

The MET have shown themselves to be corrupt. They have largely punished the minions and excused the leaders and organisers. SHAME ON THEM!!!!

Now we wait for SUE GRAY to set the record straight!!

We have already heard about the SECRET MEETING!!! What pressure has been brought to bear???

I put nothing past this craven bunch of fascists!! They are taking over the BBC, dismantling Channel 4 and trying to silence any opposition.

Are we any different to RUSSIA???

What a terrible journey this has been!!

Partygate – The latest!

There were categorically no parties (apart from the 22 being investigated)!

All Covid rules were followed (apart from the occasions where people are being fined for not following the rules)!

I was not there (apart from the four that I attended)!

No lawbreaking took place (apart from all the laws that were broken)!

I thought they were work gatherings (apart from the ‘bring your own booze, party costumes, quizzes, music, cake and nibbles)!!

Just because lots of people are being fined for flagrantly breaching the rules we had just brought in does not mean there was lawbreaking (we thought the rules did not apply to us)!

We have to wait until the MET police have completed their investigations (in order for me to tell whether I was there or not – even though I know I was there)!

I never lied to the public (apart from saying that there were definitely no parties in my flat or garden, that I knew nothing about them, that I wasn’t there and I was never there in person)!

I never lied to the House of Commons (apart from saying that there were definitely no parties in my flat or garden, that I knew nothing about them, that I wasn’t there and I was never there in person)!

I will definitely tell you if I get fined by the MET for breach of the law (like fuck I will)!

I will definitely release the Sue Grey report in full just as soon as the MET are through with handing out all their fines (after I’ve clipped out all the bits I don’t like)!

I do not need to resign (because I am a bumbling, lying buffoon that the public love and I’m above the law. I got Brexit done and beat Covid!)!

They won’t kick me out because there’s a war going on in Ukraine (besides, everyone knows I am a habitual liar and they all forgive me)!

I do not admit anything (even when caught red-handed)!

Partygate?? What Partygate??

A Week In Politics – As the ship goes down!!

When it’s going well it’s easy. They forgive your every blunder and gloss over the cracks.

When it starts to go wrong it doesn’t take long for the full horror to become apparent.

This clown was never capable of doing anything at this level – he’s nothing more than a cunning twerp.

Thanks John Peachey and Chris Riddell!!

The Corona Diaries – Day 713

A cold day with a bit of drizzle. These are hard times for nature. The early warm spells have brought the season forward. The plants bud and are caught out by cold snaps. Everything is thrown out of synch. The flowers open before pollinators have emerged. Predators emerge before prey. It messes all the timing up. The result is chaos. Global warming is creating havoc in the world of plants and animals. We’ll see if it can change quickly enough.

Today I largely stayed in – watched the rugby and edited. On page 178 of the Beefheart book. I’m getting there!!

It’s been good to play some Davey Graham. Such a brilliant guitarist. Too much heroin. It stopped him from achieving what he was capable of. Our loss.

Meanwhile, out in Coronaland the situation is becoming laughable. Our resident clown is desperately trying to hang on to power. The rats are already jumping ship, his ministers are breaking ranks and speaking out against him, the letters are flying in, the cake knives are out and the smiley-faced usurpers are denying they are interested while positioning themselves.

This is a dead man walking but the lobotomized fool can’t quite see it. He still thinks that he’ll scrape through and everyone will forget. The polls will straighten up and he’ll be popular again.

Ain’t gonna happen. Once people see through you the bubble has burst. It’s like a segment of the public has awoken from hypnosis. The fingers have been clicked. I don’t think the clown will be able to put them under again.

There are three ways this can go:

He can stumble on, ignoring everything, and continue to do damage to his party and all around him until something finally delivers the coup de grace.

He can resign and put everyone out of their agony.

He can wait to be voted out with a vote of no confidence and suffer the humiliation of being told he’s a useless cretin who is now a liability.

We’ve got the MET report, Sue Green’s unredacted report, The May elections, the reality of Brexit, the cost of living crisis, the tax rises, inflation, price rises, the energy crisis, further blunders, the covid report and revelations. It’s a question of time. Even a competent person would struggle and Johnson is far from competent.

The clown is hoping that he can scrape through this, survive the MET and Gray, get on the front foot with an amazing new set of initiatives, regain his popularity, not make any more blunders and emerge into the sunny uplands.

About as much chance of that as Brexit and Levelling up working – and that’s never going to happen!

I hope he staggers on lying and lying and lying, dragging the Tories further into the mire until he does for them all.

Who do I want to see succeed him? Rees-Mogg of course! He’s the most obnoxious, smarmy profiteer. Surely nobody in their right minds would vote for him.

Mind you, Gove, Sunak, Patel, Doris and Truss would give him a run for his money. If I was betting I’d say Sunak will get it. They think he’s popular. But will the public really take to someone who, with wealth of around £430 million is richer than the Queen? Would they think that he could possibly relate to poor people or have their interests at heart? I don’t think so. Too smarmy by half.

This is the heartless bastard who cut universal credit while doing a multimillion-pound renovation of his luxury mansions. A true Tory man of the people.

I shall watch the ensuing knifings and intrigue with interest. The sooner we rid ourselves of the whole bunch of these corrupt Tory profiteers the better.

British people have a class problem – we keep voting these self-serving elite into power. It’s time we learnt our lesson!!

So yesterday there were 82,053 new cases with 254 deaths. Is it coming down? Who knows? It’s anybody’s guess!’

Reinfections are increasing with people going down with one variant after another. The booster programme is stalling because partygate has removed all confidence. Omicron variant BA.2 is storming the world and is even more contagious.

Don’t worry, Downing Street is highly organised, our PM is focussed and all is well!!

Stay safe!! (You’re on your own – they are playing politics – if they’re playing at all!!)
