At worst thoughtlessness. But media will exaggerate everything and the vast amount of public will obey media instructions. Righteous Indignation has always been media gold (I used it frequently over ten years in my columns in the Sun).

If Boris was smart (he's not) he would have just said he went into the garden looking for Larry the Cat and found it full of strangers.

Where I come from we say it's a lot of fuss over nowt.
Basically, people who work in the same building got together for a drink before going home. They had already had the contact needed to pass on the virus. Having a drink or two did not make any difference. No more a party than those in other offices or police stations or the even Labour Party's 'party'.
There is a huge amount of hypocrisy on all sides (as always), detracting from the more important issues.

Totally agree PaulB but it is actually of massive importance because media tells us so and the vast majority of humanity is gullible.

This isn't actually the case. They were working in eighty or ninety separate offices, not going down the pit together!

Don't let the media fool you Honey. Those offices contained people mixing with each other as much as nurses and doctors on different hospital wards.

This whole matter came about because of that photo of people boozing in the back garden (don't they have a lovely big garden?)

They say the photo could only have been taken from a window at the back of No 11.

Who lives at No 11?

Why one Rishi Sunak.

Who wasn't at the bash at No 10..Rishi Sunak

(fancy going to a party at No 10 when they tell you to bring your own booze ! cheapos )

Arise Rishi Sunak..Prime Minister of Great Britain !

I can imagine, Rishi going to No.10 with cans of Wife Beater and a cheap karaoke machine from B&M Bargains.

Now it's Downing Street parties on the eve of Prince Philip's funeral and during a period of national mourning. Wonder if this will be Boris's downfall rather than Covid rules.

Yes, in that particular office, but not every office.
A hundred people would not have been mixing closely.

I think so Jo. In fact I posted on here after the first party leak that this was the end of Boris. Next week or 6 months but it's the end.

I don't think it should be the reason: there are many serious issues he should have gone for long ago. But hypocrisy will animate the electorate like nothing else. While the needless removal of their freedoms will just pass them by...

I'm all for politicians saying "look I stuffed that up, so very sorry, won't do it again" and being able to get on with it.

They should also be able to say "I've changed my mind because etc etc blah blah.."

Instead they are bullied into being locked into a "position" by the media and never being allowed to divert from it.

The whole swamp needs to be drained.

Totally agree with this Hedda. It is an incredibly unhealthy situation. The media won't move from this moral outrage approach until the public stop lapping it up. I can't see this happening in an increasingly dumbing-down world.

We call it RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION Wyot - a vital emergency area for when there is nothing to write about. Us in media have used it for decades.

Yes interesting and I have no memory of when it didn't happen (I am 49) in tabloids at least. But I do have memory of when it did not drive ALL public policy, as it depressingly seems to now..
