On Monday, senior civil servant Sue Gray released her heavily anticipated yet limited 12-page report, which disclosed that three of the 12 events the prime minister had are being investigated by the Metropolitan Police, including one in his flat.
"We had a bundle of material provided to us just Friday, which is well over 500 pieces of paper, about a ream and a half, and over 300 photographs," said Met Commander Catherine Roper according to PA.
Gray was quite frank in her conclusions about the parties: "There were failures of leadership and judgment by different parts of No 10 and the Cabinet Office at different times. Some of the events should not have been allowed to take place."
However, who knows what the full extent of her findings are since the police told her to make only "minimal reference" to the 12 parties being investigated.
She does not go into any specific detail on the events, but she also doesn't shy away from her frustration at the turn of events as she finalised her report:
"It is not possible at present to provide a meaningful report setting out and analysing the extensive factual information I have been able to gather."
Until the Met have completed their work, Gray will keep her detailed findings tucked away. It also seems that she may even share it with Johnson.
In the report, she said that she would "ensure the secure storage and safekeeping of all the information gathered until such time as it may be required further."
Once people on Twitter heard the news of the bundle of 300 photos, many poked fun about what the "partygate" snap would show, including references to the Hangover movies and the way many people posted photos of parties on Facebook in 2007.
If they ever get released it\u2019ll be like the end credits to the hangover movie.https://twitter.com/benrileysmith/status/1488184464861798401\u00a0\u2026
Crikey. \n\nIf Tory MPs were nervous before- surely they\u2019d want to drop Boris & Carrie Johnson before being marched like fools up another ridiculous hill for them\u2026https://twitter.com/benrileysmith/status/1488184464861798401\u00a0\u2026

So Tory MPs really want to suspend judgement on the PM till the Met decide what to make of these 300 photos? That is an intriguing bethttps://twitter.com/benrileysmith/status/1488184464861798401\u00a0\u2026
