Memes mocking Boris Johnson‘s claim that a ‘bring your own booze’ party in the Downing Street garden was a ‘work event’ are continuing to flood social media. 

The Prime Minister finally admitted yesterday that he went to a ‘party’ in No10’s garden at the height of lockdown in May 2020 – but argued he thought it was a ‘work event’ and ‘technically’ within the rules.  

The internet erupted with #workevent hashtags poking fun at Mr Johnson, with one showing a shopping aisle full of booze alongside the caption: ‘Anyone need anything from the stationery cupboard?’ 

Another meme showed a photoshopped poster of the comedy-drama film 24 Hour Party People, with the word ‘party’ replaced by ‘work event’.

And a third, capturing a guilt-stricken dog surrounded by shredded paper, read: ‘My name is Boris and trust me I know nothing about parties.’

Ryanair earlier joined in by sharing an image of the Prime Minister’s face edited onto a popular meme showing dancing party-goers with the captions: ‘Boris Johnson for 25 minutes on 20 May 2020’ and ‘I don’t know I’m at a party’ next to his face.   

At a stormy PMQs yesterday, Mr Johnson said he wanted to ‘thank’ staff at the event in May 2020 but recognised that in ‘hindsight’ it should not have happened.

He said he understood public ‘fury’ and ‘took responsibility’, but that he believed it was a work event. ‘I bitterly regret it,’ he added.
