It is not one of the events the Met Police is investigating and Downing Street insisted to the publication that the event was a “virtual quiz”, but they also admitted “those who were in the office for work may have attended virtually from their desks.”
And official guidance at the time stated: “You must not have a work Christmas lunch or party, where that is a primarily social activity and is not otherwise permitted by the rules in your tier.”
So this picture might change things slightly given the previous image only showed a screenshot Johnson at his laptop and people aren't best pleased.
Cummings has consistently criticised Johnson over Partygate and has repeatedly hinted that there is a lot of evidence showing parties took place in Downing Street while the rest of the country was in lockdown.
The former Downing Street advisor said he wanted rid of the PM and described his task in removing Johnson as "an unpleasant but necessary job" and likened it to "fixing the drains".
He later added:
doesnt matter if cabinet office stitch up MET like they did Geidt, the pics will come out and the public will think 'MET lying', not 'oh pm innocent after all'. penny dropping with mps...
