The Government have been plunged into a fresh crisis after a leaked email sent by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s Principal Private Secretary, Martin Reynolds, invited over 100 Downing Street to a ‘bring your own booze” party on May 20, 2020. But appearing on Sky News, Mr Argar refused to say that Mr Johnson had done anything wrong as he threw himself into the line of fire in a desperate defence of his boss.

After a long-winded answer from Mr Argar noting the Prime Minister admitted that he is “sickened” by reports of rule-breaking parties in Downing Street at PMQs back in November, Kay Burley lost her cool.

She slammed “Come on, you have to deal with this!

“We have seen the photographs, we have seen documentary evidence, we have seen what the Met have said.

“We have seen what the Prime Minister has said, we have seen what the culture secretary has said.

“Rather than the Prime Minister being sickened, shouldn’t it be the public that is sickened?”

Mr Argar replied: “I have already said Kay, I can entirely understand why these allegations, these reports, will cause great upset and anger 

“And that is why it is right that the Prime Ministers, at a time when everyone was making huge sacrifices, sadly many lives were lost, said he wants to get to the bottom of this.

“He has commissioned that investigation, but I am not going give a commentary on what Ms Gray may or may conclude.”

When asked how could he defend the Prime Minister following the new leak, Mr Argar was insistent that he understood the “hurt” the reports have caused Britons.

But said it was “absolutely right” that Mr Johnson has commissioned an investigation into the alleged rule breaching bashes.
