We don’t downplay Partygate but Boris Johnson has a point – all perspective has been lost
The Sun says WE don’t downplay the No10 parties. They shouldn’t have happened. Our readers followed the Covid rules and are still angry at those in power who didn’t.
But yesterday’s furious attempted prosecution of Boris Johnson by Labour, the confected rage, the frothing abuse and the sanctimonious moralising are hard to stomach.
The PM apologised to the Commons and sought to contrast his “mistakes” with the gravity of the war in Ukraine and his global leadership over it.
Yes, it was a tactic — but he has a point: All perspective has been lost.
Imagine Putin’s mirth if President Zelensky’s No1 international ally is ousted over Partygate.
Keir Starmer didn’t mention Ukraine. To Labour’s leader, himself pictured chugging beer with workmates during lockdown, Boris’s parties are the crime of the century.
