Sir Keir Starmer branded Boris Johnson as “so weak” as he vented his fury on Sky News following revelations that the Prime Minister broke COVID-19 rules to host a Downing Street quiz when the rest of the country were ordered to not mix with other households.
Pictures released by the Daily Mirror show how Mr Johnson sat maskless and in close proximity with two aides as he played quizmaster for staffers during tier three restrictions.
The pictures are the latest in an ongoing stream of scandal which has rocked Downing Street over the past two weeks as allegations of up to eight COVID smashing bashes took place across the Westminster estate in November and December last year.
Meanwhile footage obtained by ITV showed Mr Johnson’s former spokeswoman Allegra Stratton laughing during a mock press conference after being asked about one such party. She resigned on Wednesday following the leak.
Speaking on Sunday, the Labour leader accused Prime Minister as having ”lost the authority to lead” Britain amid the ongoing scandals.
