Totally agreeThe smart move for Boris would be to say “right, looks like we’ve both done things that with hindsight weren’t a smart move? We now need to drop the point scoring and crack on without distractions on the task of getting us clear of this pandemic and getting the country up and running again. You can either sit opposite and sling shite like a mad chimp or you can come up with some constructive suggestions but either way, there’s work to be done. Your call.”
The Starmer thing looks less like an organised event and more like a drink during a meeting than the large drinks meetings taking place at No10. But if the Tory ones are outside the rules then so are the Labour ones - depending on when they took place.
What it probably highlights is that nobody is without sin and that they should start doing real politics rather than mudslinging
I'm fairly certain there will be pictures of (Fl)Abbot drinking during lockdown in the company of people as well since she appears to be unable to go even a short while without a drink. However it won't be a social occasion on the basis that no one will believe that anyone wanted to socialise with her. They might be classed as carers instead.
