Partygate: Labour leader Starmer attacks ridiculous PM

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has told MPs Boris Johnsons partygate account becomes "more extraordinary" every day.

The crucial PMQs began with Conservative MP Christian Wakefield defecting to Labour just minutes before the event was due to begin.

Sir Keir said the PMs latest claims suggest his staff were not being truthful when it was alleged they warned him about the lockdown-busting Downing Street party on 20 May 2020.

He said: "It requires the Prime Minister to expect us to believe that while every other person... was told it was a social occasion, he alone was told it was a work meeting."

Sir Keir asked if the PM realised how "ridiculous that sounds"?
