What's the latest on Sue Gray's report into partygate?
The long-awaited Sue Gray report is finally here, and the damning conclusions drawn on the Partygate scandal have caused social media users to call for Boris Johnson’s resignation more fervently than ever.
The Cabinet Office confirmed that Downing Street received the report from the senior civil servant earlier today, before it was made public before PM Boris Johnson addressed MPs in the Commons.
Gray’s findings were expected to be highly critical of the culture in Downing Street which led to the repeated violations of Covid restrictions – and so it came to be, with the report into the Partygate scandal attacking “a serious failure” to abide by the “standards expected of the entire British population” during the Covid pandemic.
The long-awaited inquiry into the No 10 parties concludes “too little thought” was given “the risks they presented to public health and how they might appear to the public”.
