Over 285,000 people are set to attend a ‘rave’ at 10 Downing Street after the government’s alleged Christmas party scandal.
The event has been arranged in response to a video that was leaked by ITV News earlier this week showing the Prime Minister’s former press secretary, Allegra Stratton, appearing to confirm staff got together while London was under Tier 3 restrictions last December.
A description on the Facebook event page reads: “Massive rave at 10 Downing Street. Line up; Boris Johnson and chums.

“No social distancing required. Bring who you like. Bring your own nibbles and drink.”
People were quick to leave comments, with many of them poking fun at the government.
One said: “Is the rumour that Rishi Sunak is making it a free bar up until 1am correct?”
“Is this a Brin your own bottle or is cheese and wine supplied?” quipped another.
A third added: “How come we have to bring our own drinks and nibbles? Are the taxpayers not paying like last year?”
It comes as Stratton resigned as a government adviser over the leaked video.
The 41-year-old told was photographed crying outside her home as she told reporters: “I understand the anger and frustration that people feel. To all of you who lost loved ones, who endured intolerable loneliness and who struggled with your businesses, I am truly sorry.
“I now fear that my comments in the leaked video of December 20 have become a distraction from that fight.
“My remarks seemed to make light of the rules, rules that people were doing everything to obey. That was never my intention.”
The Prime Minister, who recently announced the birth of his second child with his wife, Carrie, said he’d ‘been assured there was no party and that no covid rules were broken’.
