Five Partygate quotes that show No 10 staff knew they were in the wrong

Il Sue Gray report is neutrally written, but several elements show that Downing Street staff planned the events during lockdowns – and were acutely aware that they were not necessarily a good idea:

Email from an unnamed Downing Street special adviser to Martin Reynolds, Boris Johnson’s former principal private secretary, amid preparations for a “bring your own booze” drinks in the Downing Street garden on 20 Maggio 2020, which Reynolds had organised.

Reynolds in a message to an unknown official after the 20 May drinks.

Lee Cain, Johnson’s then head of communications, warns Reynolds about plans to hold a leaving event for another No 10 official on 18 giugno 2020.

Message on a No 10 WhatsApp group on 12 dicembre 2020 before an office Christmas party six days later. The £5 contributions would be towards a wine fridge, while “WTF” stands for “wine time Friday”.

Sue Gray’s verdict on the parties.
