Liz Truss tweeted her wholehearted support for the PM – 14 votes of no confidence
It’s fair to say that Boris Johnson’s non-apology for being at a party during lockdown has gone down like a mask mandate at a Right Said Fred gig.
Those claiming Johnson made a heartfelt apology for the party in May 2020. He did not.
He maintained it was a work event, for which he would not need to apologise. He apologised for the public perception of the event, meaning, I'm sorry that you perceive it the wrong way.

His claim that he implicitly believed it to be a work event was met with much hilarious scepticism.

The woman widely touted to replace Boris Johnson as leader of the Tory Party, Liz Truss, either bought the excuse wholeheartedly or was happy to go along with it, because she tweeted this.
We’ve checked thoroughly and she didn’t follow it up with “LOL, jk.”
These tweets show just what people thought of her show of support.
Good grief. They’re all quite, quite mad. https://t.co/MPromXpdIy

Imagine showing your whole arse on main in defence of a guy 66% of the public wanted gone *before* he insulted their intelligence by pretending he doesn’t know what a party looks like https://t.co/gVb5B2Xe4E
