A Tory MP got his just desserts for saying the PM was ‘ambushed with a cake’ – 34 sweet burns
Yet another Tory MP has taken up the baton in defence of the Prime Minister’s partying – and hit himself straight in the face with it.
Conor Burns told Channel 4’s Cathy Newman that the PM was blameless in the birthday party row as he had been ‘ambushed with a cake’.
"He was ambushed with a cake."
A Conservative MP says that a birthday celebration held in Downing Street for Boris Johnson wasn't a "premeditated party".

He got such a thorough mauling from Twitter, we’re not sure he’ll ever gateau-ver it.
Moving swiftly on – these were the best reactions we saw.
Never trust a cake. Ambushing bastards.

The only thing worse than being ambushed with cake is being ambushed with naked women I'm not married to.

Cake ambush is a lot more common than Islington leftists realise.
With their vegan diets they probably don’t encounter many lusciously baked cakes.
Thus their ignorance of this.

Remember, at a time of Russian aggression on the border of Ukraine, it is imperative we remain led by a man who *checks notes* was ambushed with cake https://t.co/wbpCEF3AHi

All those times – that last for years and years – where you're hit with a hot flush as you remember something stupid you said.
Imagine trying to get to sleep tonight if you'd given an interview at a critical political moment using the words "ambushed with a cake".
