Piers Morgan has slammed ‘shameful’ Downing Street staff over an alleged Christmas party that supposedly took place last year, during Covid restrictions.
ITV News has recently obtained footage of Allegra Stratton, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s former press secretary, answering questions on December 22, 2020, about the party that reportedly took place the week before.
After seeing the clip, the former Good Morning Britain presenter has taken to Twitter and blasted the PM and Downing Street staff.

He tweeted: “Wow. The big lie exposed, in their own damning words.
“And look how funny they all found it. I doubt the British public will find this quite so amusing.”
He then continued: “Boris Johnson is continuing to lie about last year’s illicit Christmas party at No10 – even when we’ve all now seen his own spokeswoman on video laughing about it and wondering how best to lie about it to the media.
“Even by his standards, this is absolutely shameful.”
Since footage of Allegra Stratton reportedly confirming the Christmas party has come to light, a Downing Street spokesperson has released a statement.
It reads: “There was no Christmas party. Covid rules have been followed at all times.”
Morgan isn’t the only person to have slammed Boris Johnson over the issue, as some MPs have said the PM should be ‘removed from office’.
Reportedly, the MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber stated: “This video is damning and leaves the Prime Minister with a lot to answer for.
“When every individual up and down the country was told to stay at home in order to protect the NHS, the Tories were instead having a Christmas party which, as a senior staff member has now confirmed, was ‘not socially distanced’.
“If this is true, then the Prime Minister’s position is untenable and he must remove himself from office immediately.”
