It’s pretty obvious now it’s the press making out these pictures are way worse than what they are 

Is it not pretty obvious that it's not good that, at a time when people were surrounded by police and fined for walking in a group of 2, or that families were unable to attend funerals of loved ones, the politicians who set the rules weren't able to follow them themselves?

Put it this way; if 15-20 nurses had taken some wine and cheese outside after a shift and sat around, and a partner of a nurse had turned up, would that have been allowed? Of course not. It'd been broken up.

The act itself (having a glass of wine outdoors with colleagues) is fine in isolation. In context of the sacrifices that most British people made at the same time, under instruction from the very people pictured, it's far from fine. 

I don't get how you can't understand this. What they did was illegal for anyone else in the country.

That was in May ,It has to be taken in the context of the time, people were fined for doing what they were doing.  The Xmas Party photos were in December.

We cannot keep locking down every time there is a new variant this ain’t going away we got to just get on with it have the vaccinations and carry on 

Correct, everyone has had the chance to be double jabbed and the vulnerable will take extra care as we all know the risks. Maybe have Covid passports for certain places but we will never stop the spread, just delay it.

Not everyone has though…. Some can’t have the jabs, pregnant women were given different information (a few months back do not have the jab as it can affect the baby - now being told it’s safe) 

I do agree though other than that. If everyone takes extra care (some wouldn’t) it would be fine

The Government have always encouraged pregnant women to have the jab and even if it was a few months ago they have had plenty of time to get jabbed but if not then isolate until they have.  The whole idea with lockdowns was to protect the NHS, we are no way near flooding the NHS with Covid patients especially as the majority of the population are double jabbed now.

His wife is not part of the goverment, shes not a minister so pretty strange work meeting 

I've not been to many meetings where the bosses wife and kid sit at the table. No laptops, no notepads, no pens or anything for taking notes. Yeah definitely a work meeting that one.

Just a personal opinion but I think they will wait until christmas day has passed then close down again even if the infection is a made up number Boris wont want to seem weak
He is weak, leaving it to the people to reduce mixing at the biggest spreading event of the year. What he always does, waits until the parade has started then runs to the front.
