Trevor Phillips breaks down recalling daughter’s death in partygate interview He added:"I think the prime minister broke the law, I think he then lied about what had happened." There have been over a dozen different allegations of festivities in government while lockdown rules were in place – but no charges have been brought by the police. Six Tory MPs have so far publicly called on the prime minister to quit over the scandal, with others telling him he needs to up his game and reverse the polling slide. Yet more have warned that their inboxes are overflowing with emails from constituents livid at the revelations over lockdown festivities. 54 of Mr Johnson’s MPs need to privately write letters to their party to trigger a Tory leadership contest, with the PM now taking evasion action to bring his party back onside. The Independent reported earlier this week that Mr Johnson was set to try and save his own skin by sacking officials close to him – dubbed"Operation Save Big Dog". Details are now beginning to emerge of the planned cull of his inner circle, designed to restore both public and internal party confidence. Martin Reynolds, who sent the"bring your own booze" invite to No 10 colleagues, and his deputy are expected to be forced out, according to the Sunday Times . The paper says No 10's chief of staff may also be set to go. Tory chair Mr Dowden told the BBC's Sunday morning programme:"I can assure you the prime minister is both very contrite and deeply apologetic for what happened. "But, more importantly, he is determined to make sure that this can't be allowed to happen and that we address the underlying culture in Downing Street. There were failings: we should have done better, much, much better." It has been suggested that No 10 staff may be banned from drinking on the job, amid revelations that they regularly held “wine-time Fridays” while lockdown regulations were in effect. But there is also pressure from within the party to change tack on policy and perhaps chart a more right-wing course. Lord Frost, who quit the Cabinet last month over the political direction of the government, said changing the No 10 team was"necessary but not sufficient". UK news in pictures
