According to the Sue Gray report, Boris Johnson’s former close political aide Lee Cain repeatedly warned against parties going ahead because it would be “somewhat of a comms risk.”
Sue Gray’s report claims Lee Cain “subsequently spoke to Martin Reynolds (former top No.10 official) and advised him that the event should be cancelled.”
Martin Reynolds claims he did “not recall any such conversation” and has since been sacked from the top job at No.10.
In a further message that was reported in Sue Gray’s report, Martin Reynolds, who has been sacked, spoke about the event, saying “Best of luck – a complete non-story but better than them focusing on our drinks (which we seem to have got away with).”
