He makes the rules but doesn’t understand them excuses Resign Insult to people’s intelligence, and anyone who believes him is as daft as him, plenty of those people out there, seriously this is what is running the country scary times!!! Girl what the hell is he saying? What’s wrong with this man lies lies lies

Utter disgrace to the country. Suitcases full a bevvy and blind eye as the country prayed for their loved ones at other end of goodbye calls. Get rid of this stupidity and restart Govn with some sort of professionalism. More neck than a giraffe trying to ignore his way through it hey Dude, you are in charge, why should anyone have to tell you anything?

Bruv YOU make the rules Vibes must have been atrocious 😂😂 Nobody told him the rules that he told us?

Boris Johnson broke law over No 10 parties, says Keir Starmer – videoLabour leader says prime minister broke the law by attending at least one of the parties at Downing Street during lockdown Do not violate human rights against asylum seekers. The people of Delta 011 are also human rights seekers.. Then so did everyone else at the parties? And wasn't it only the organisers that were being stung for the fines during lockdown not the attendees? Fairly sure it wasn't Boris organising... Oh dear. A barrister lying whatever next watching him slither and squirm under questioning just shows you cant trust this man.

It’s no excuse. What happens if you park on a double yellow and you get a ticket, or go through a speed camera at 120? No defence of the law. Johnson broke the law and encouraged others to do it too. Shameful. And people were dying alone. He ought to know his own rules. Does any day go by without him having to apologise for his incompetence?

Hypocrisy at its finest ! Burnt Tory toast Does he take us all for fools? (Yes) Time to go .... Thankyou for doing that BethRigby and thank you for not backing down when the waff waff waffle started. JohnsonTheLiar Clearly a details man.. He was the one making the rules and broadcasting them on a daily basis, who was supposed to tell him? This is unacceptable at a time when rules were so tough on everyone, espially those that lost loved ones from COVID and other illnesses.

Beyond parody Simply BorisJohnson has apologised to RoyalFamily and the 4 nations 🇬🇧🏳️‍🌈🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🏳️‍⚧️ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 PennyMordaunt this is most he can do in his position 10DowningStreet 🤞 DominicRaab 🤟🏽 SophyRidgeSky 🤝 Is he trying to sound stupid? I also don’t understand how 100 or so people managed to walk through the front door of No 10 without anyone batting an eyelid? Surely an Uber driver who took a few MPs via an offie to grab a bottle of Echo Falls (on expenses) could’ve twigged

102Amadeus Ha ha ha It's so laughable and desperate an excuse! He made the rules! He knew, and flaunted the rules, or didn't have a clue what they were? Either way he has to go! Belligerent or incompetent, or both he is not fit for office! I’m waiting for him to say “man I don’t know what to do” (say it wasn’t you alright) honey came in and caught me red handed creeping with the girl next door….

Someone should have told him? I say sack the person in charge or if they have any sense of morality they should resign Bull Pathetic

That reply from him doesn’t cut it he should have used his common sense! Clearly hasn’t got any. Tbf it was when lockdown was eased and ppl where celebrating VE dat with loads of party's all over England. That was a work gathering with ppl spread about in there own bubbles. Plus the blm protest Not partying during mass human extinction should be a no-brainer your family taught you as a young child. Oh wait... his family are the Rothschilds.

Not just imposing impostors in the place of nonexistent MBuhari, but *Britain has established terror groups in Nigeria *Britain is continuing the genocide against Biafrans, using NGRPresident and GovNigeria *Britain is opposing and resisting BIAFRAREFERENDUM for BIAFRAEXIT 🤣🤣🤣 The State of Little Britain

The leader of the law and order party unaware of the rules.Remarkable. Gotta stop hounding him. The media will drive more and more people to suicide. Absolute witch-hunt No they didn't. You told us. Duh MarcDavenant

Dominic Cummings: Boris Johnson lied to parliament about lockdown partyDominic Cummings has accused Boris Johnson of lying to parliament about a Downing Street garden party during the first lockdown after claiming that he directly a============witness=============of t r U U U t h Arise Sir Cummings. Dom Cummings willing to go on oath. Peston knows the email exists. Sue Gray informed and asked to speak to the author. Watch this space

🤣 he's gotta be taking the piss Leader of the House party nobodytoldme This is now utterly humiliating for the people of the UK. I dread to think what's being said about us, elsewhere in the world....oh, wait I know! All the way over in South Africa. Yet again the British public are getting conned and lied to by people with zero common sense BorisJohnson, sajidjavid are absolutely shocking!

You're the freaking PM! It's your job to know your rules! BorisJohnson Why didn’t you resign when you got caught when you was partying during lockdown. Boris Johnson will stay So we now have to wait for Sue Gray to decide if he's a) mislead parliament b) stupid It's a windup right. This man is our leader, ffs, if this isn't enough to get him into a straight jacket a carted of to Bedlam what is. He addressed the nation with the rules. Jesus 🤨

Should he need telling?

Letters: Boris Johnson has lied, but it doesn’t mean all politicians doLetters to the editor: our readers share their views. Please send your letters to lettersindependent.co.uk Is this a joke 🤔😂 Totally agree, just thoes who condone it day in day out, and we know exactly who they are.

Another whopping great lie. He knew exactly what he was doing. Bring on the 1922 committee, this charlatan needs sacking! BethRigby Is there anyone, anyone, who is a bigger hypocrite than the lockdown partying Beth Rigby, suspended and told to stay at home. Talk about double standards. Unbelievable. IGNORANTIA JURIS NON EXCUSAT Boris likes a bit of Latin….heres some for him!

Did the dog eat his copy of the rules? .....what? The expression of “a man” Who knows he’s doomed I think if ever get pulled up by police I'll use this line 😜 Hahaha he's joking right He WROTE the f*ckin rules!!! Is he not sentient?!

Pub renames itself The Lying B-word in dig at Boris JohnsonThe landlord pointed out that both Dominic Cummings and Matt Hancock quit shortly after being featured on the sign. ME!

🙄 If you’re PM in the middle of a pandemic, do you really need to be “told” in order to know whether or not a gathering breaks the rules? Ignorance of the rules? By our chief rule-maker? I thought ignorance was no defence Lies. He thinks he's above the rules and can do what he wants when he wants. Broke every lockdown rule there is without any disregard for peoples health or wellbeing. He needs to resign because nobody trusts this fool anymore

Liar His days are surely numbered . This has got to be a spoof. If that is his defence then we'll done those who voted for him and the tories. Unfortunately a majority of the country who voted against them have to suffer

nobigfish Does he know he is the Prime minister? 😂😂😂😂 Is this guy for real. Bit worrying when he’s supposed to be a ‘leader’ jamesjohnson252 This might be his Prince Andrew moment. Thick as mince and a very bad actor in every way. NobodyToldMe JohnsonOut He need to go!! The End!! Ok even though you set the rules and read them out. Let’s say no one told you, but no one tells you that you shouldn’t pee in the toaster and guess what you still don’t do it.

Did someone drop Johnson on his head when he was a child. He comes across as profoundly thick. LondonDavid4 What can you say, I have no words Erm didn’t he make the rules?

Standing there like a naughty kid in school who’s been caught drawing a cock on the chalkboard. Pathetic. You literally set the rules yourself. On National tv. 10 days before. nobodytoldme BorisJohnsonOut Love to know what the bill to tax payers is for this PMs adult nappies! REALLY? Hasn't he got the common sense his mother gave him? Surely.

Eton College has a lot to answer for, as well as the moral values of the Johnson family household. 🤔🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺 Remember England. You & your Tory Party voted for this chimp 🙊 Best thing you can do right now BorisJohnson is make weekends 3 days long, forever. If all else fails....act dumb BorisJohnson ........wait

Doesn’t know much for the guy supposedly in charge. They are your bloody rules!!!! You should know them !!!

Does he think we live in cuckooland‽ No one told him, he knew what the rules were That's just totally and utterly embarrassing. This is getting beyond parody now. Your government made those rules, Prime Minister. They are your own rules. Goodness me. What a farce.
