Report claims No10 party was NOT work event as two of Gove’s advisers attended

Is this further evidence of a poison cummings plot? The report claims that the No10 party was not a business event as two of Michael Gove’s advisers attended – and they are not based in Downing Street

  • The Prime Minister admitted he attended the No. 10 garden ‘party’ during the lockdown in May 2020
  • Cummings described the prime minister’s interpretation of his attendance as “bulls ***”
  • The former prime minister’s chief adviser ignited the match with the party when he blogged about it










Dominic Cummings has thrown a series of “grenades” at his old boss since leaving Downing Street – and some in Westminster thought he might be up to his old tricks again last night.

Because it was reported that some of the Downing Street party attendees didn’t work at Number 10 – ruling out the idea that it was a work-related event.

Boris Johnson’s former chief adviser sparked the match – which took place on May 20, 2020 – when he wrote about it in a blog five days ago. Since then the information has continued to drip.

An email from Martin Reynolds, the prime minister’s chief private secretary, inviting about 100 employees to a “bring your own booze” party in Downing Street park was leaked to ITV on Monday.

But it was reported yesterday that two of Michael Gove’s special advisers – who did not work in Downing Street – were at the event.

Henry Newman and Josh Grimston were allegedly drinking with Carrie Johnson at the meeting, according to ITV political editor Robert Peston.

Their presence raised questions about the argument that it was a Downing Street staff meeting.

Earlier that day, Cummings described the prime minister’s explanation for attending the event as “bulls***”.

He said he objected to Mr Reynolds’ invitation at the time because it was “quite social and not practical”. He criticized the assembly, describing it as “in no way within the rules”.

Downing Street and advisors have been contacted for comment.
