No10 saying Boris didn't receive the email - but that is dancing on the head of a pin.

The question now is - was he warned about the contents of the email and urged to cancel the party, and did he dismiss these concerns?

No comment from No10 on that yet.
 
This is a good point re policy and the effective running of the country. But I wonder if they've decided institutional plausible deniability is the bigger priority...
Personnel changes in No10 increasingly feel inevitable. But hard to see how losing the PPS, Deputy PPS, Chief of Staff and Director of Comms simultaneously will improve the Downing St operation - no matter who replaces them. If institutional memory matters anywhere, it's there.

The party demanded a debate as soon as possible on the bid - but it has no legal force Labour's Wes Streeting batted away calls to back a full no confidence motion saying it would 'galvanise' Tories to defend Boris Johnson mirror.co.uk/news/politics/…

‘Operation Red Meat’ policies to save Boris Johnson, per Sunday Times:

*Re-brief licence fee freeze
*Set the military on Channel boat crossings
*Publish levelling-up white paper, late
*’Skills and training’ for UC claimants who’ve had £20 cut
*...We won’t drink at work any more
 
The time has come... @Nigella_Lawson chicken with lemon and orzo happened tonight. (When I eventually found Orzo). Worth the hype 😋
 
In reply to @ChrisMasonBBC
I've asked others to no avail, so can you explain the process whereby a journalist gets asked to do one of these 'pool' interviews with Boris Johnson? It seems to be the same very limited group of people get the opportunity, so how does the process work?
I’m not part of it, but the pool is a collection of the main broadcasters eg BBC, Sky, ITV, who take it in turns to ask the Qs on different days. Beyond that, assume it’s a political reporter who is on duty and in the right part of the country...!

For those wishing to split hairs on this... Tortoise point out that people were told to “remain in their primary residence”, and that “essential travel does not include visit to second homes… for isolation purposes".

Not so much as a loophole, but the way the UK government's system of standards works.

Which itself as a bit of a problem.

Unless it is reformed.

Which is the prime minister's call.

This was in evidence when the last Advisor ruled Priti Patel had broken the Ministerial Code - but the PM overruled him, and decided she hadn’t. The Code isn’t explicit about whether this applies even to investigations into the PM himself. But it doesn't say otherwise...

Lord Geidt gives report to Boris Johnson, and any punishment is then decided by… Boris Johnson. The Ministerial Code says PM is “ultimate judge of the standards of behaviour expected of a Minister”. PM also decides “the appropriate consequences of a breach of those standards”.

But Geidt can only trigger investigation with permission of… Boris Johnson. If Geidt thinks an alleged breach “might warrant further investigation”, he can “raise issue confidentially with PM”. But it’s for PM to decide if he should “refer” matter to Geidt for investigation.

If it’s possible that Boris Johnson broke the Code, then it can be referred to Independent Advisor on Ministerial Interests Lord Geidt - the same man who probed the No10 flat.

Number 10 has had to apologise to the Queen in the biggest Downing St - Palace crisis since the 1990s.
 
This has been phrased elsewhere as 'Boris Johnson apologises to the Queen' - he hasn't, it's been done through officials from No10 to the Palace. Important point of clarity not to give the PM more agency than he has...

No10 asked today what sort of suitcase was used to carry the wine for the party - a carry-on? Or the kind a family of four would take on a holiday to Tenerife?”

The answer?
