THE police investigating Downing Street lockdown parties have been advised that the police guarding Downing Street might provide a few answers.
The investigation into a number of thoroughly documented illegal gatherings that attendees are on record as attending is not expected to be challenging, especially once direct testimony is taken from the police officers who saw it all.
Nathan Muir of Hebden Bridge said: “Call me Columbo, but I’d begin there.
“Check the records, find out who was on duty, haul them to the interrogation room and get a full list of all parties they saw, heard or inadvertently attended. It doesn’t have to be Line of Duty. They’ll probably just tell you.
“They’ll definitely have noticed wheeled suitcases full of wine, because they’re sharp-eyed police, and there’ll definitely be full records of who was where when because it’s the seat of government.
“I say begin there but it can pretty much end there, really. Witness statements from serving and respected police officers should be all the evidence you need. Then arrests, massive fines, resignations.”
Met commissioner Cressida Dick said: “This might shock you, but I think we’re looking at total exoneration.”
