THE prime minister was caught throwing an impromptu 120-person party with cheese, wine and a karaoke machine at Westminster Abbey yesterday.
Boris Johnson and wife Carrie attended the memorial service for Prince Philip and initially appeared to be soberly dressed and observing all rules with the proper decorum.
But, following the reading from Isaiah 40 by the Right Honourable the Lord Wallace of Tankerness QC, witnesses noticed that neither Johnson or his wife were in their seats and there was thumping bass music and coloured lighting emanating from the cloisters.
An archdeacon said: “I poked my head around the door and was shocked to see Johnson, his wife, around 100 Downing Street staff and Conservative donors, interior designer Lulu Lytle and Lords Goldsmith, Cruddas and Lebedev partying like there was no tomorrow.
“There was a professional DJ and lightshow, a fully-stocked free bar, and waiters bearing trays of crudites. I personally saw a sweating Michael Gove throwing shapes on the dancefloor to the Major Lazer remix of Shape of You.
“Nonetheless all participants, including the Duke of York, insisted they were not there and it was in any case a meeting where people were talking about work.”
Johnson told the media that he cannot discuss the event because it is under investigation by the Metropolitan Police, following which he will also not discuss it.
