‘We got away with it’: Downing Street chief Martin Reynolds’ messages revealed in Sue Gray report

The Daily Telegraph says a Downing Street chief boasted they had “got away with” partygate rulebreaking, Sue Gray’s report has revealed, as she blamed senior leaders for failing to follow Covid rules.

A months-long inquiry by the civil servant concluded that “whatever the initial intent, what took place at many of these gatherings and the way in which they developed was not in line with Covid guidance at the time”.

Ms Gray, the former head of propriety and ethics in the Cabinet Office, investigated 16 events in Whitehall during the pandemic, including a karaoke party where one staff member was so drunk they were sick and two others had a fight.

Her report places the blame at the feet of senior leaders in Downing Street, including politicians and civil servants.
